Prometheus - Loved it, wasn't disappointed at all. I think my favorite thing about the movie are all the things to think about now. There's a lot of things that aren't 100% explained but I love that, it leaves so much to your imagination. I really hope he does a sequel that has to do more with the Engineers, I want to see their story, I don't really want any more Alien movies.

Its an okay movie, good idea but quite badly executed.. Jet Li is good as normal I guess.

Surely, you jest. It's one of the greatest movies of all time for his last line alone.:lol:

the end scene was the shit he should do a sequel before its too late. have them both fight someone who has pulled off becoming the one.

Prometheus - I'd give it a 3/5 if there were more decent sci-fi movies out there but for now, 4/5. It had some weird editing-pacing-continuity problems. Also, I thought the score was very poor and mismatched. If someone like Clint Mansell (Moon score) did it, I think it would have elevated my appreciation more. My favorite scene was

though it seemed to have little consequence to the plot.

Ridley Scott movies are always loads better with the director's cut. Kingdom of Heaven became one of my favorite films after seeing the complete version.


The only thing that could make Ridley Scott's Robin Hood even slightly watchable is if the Director's Cut was just the Disney version with the fox Robin. That movie was freaking awful and made me long for Tony Scott's delicate touch and unpredictability.

And if any of you haven't yet seen Ridley's Robin Hood... by all means don't. Dull, pointless, and it ends at the exact point Robin Hood actually becomes interesting.

I really liked Prometheus, person I went with didn't at all, so I guess it's one of those movies.

It makes me sad that we just don't get sci-fi movies like it anymore.

I saw Prometheus in 2d today and liked it. I agree with people who think the score wasn't as good as it could have been. Plus, the dialog sort of hit the audience over the head when making a point. Things that could have been left to the viewer to speculate we're spoken.

Very minor issues to an overaretry entertaining movie. Friend I saw it with wasn't expecting the gore. I wasn't but I still cringed a few times!

would it help if you knew it was written for The Rock originally. The screen writer couldn't come up with an idea of who could take down The Rock so he thought The Rock should fight himself. Scheduling conflict led to Jet Li replacement.

about 6 or 7 times and im planning to watch it again today lol. i love that movie.

ugh.. you guys win. I'll rewatch Attack The Block myself this week again. I've only seen it in full maybe 4 times myself.

I should probably put Project X on my PS3 since it's going to be in rotation like that.

Last night, three Jackie Chan movies were on TV. Dear god, what did they do to Police Story 3. Who the hell thought that opening would appeal to Americans, much less people in general?!

Dragon Lord was more decent, though I should watch it in its original language.

Then Project A 2 was one, not as good as the first one, but fun nonetheless.

Yeah, the scene where

was particularly silly.

That being said, I enjoyed the movie as a whole. Fassbender stole the movie, just like he did with X-Men last year.

Saw it in IMAX 3D btw. I really wish they would have 2D IMAX showings of movies for films I really wanna see on that screen, but not with that bullshit. Thank god The Dark Knight Rises isn't in 3D, since that's the other movie I'm willing to make the drive to see in IMAX, as well as pay the obscene prices they charge out here. ($18 for a movie is goddamn bullshit.)

Rise of Planet of The Apes - A very good film. Serkis was amazing as Caesar. After he brought Gollum in LOTR to life, I've had no doubt in his ability. All of the actors portraying primates did a good job. Caesar didn't have to speak and you knew exactly what he was trying to say. By the end of film, you were supposed to feel for these creatures and YOU WERE ROOTING FOR THEM AGAINST THE HUMANS!

Prometheus - 3/5 - It was ok, but left far too many questions unanswered, and left some plot holes empty for the viewers. Noomi Rapace was pretty damn sexy in the film, but I didn't really enjoy her character. As a matter of fact, I didn't enjoy many of the characters, David included. Idris Elba was fantastic, though.

The Thing prequel. Didn't know what to expect, but ti was pretty good. i like some of the the little nods to the original, like explaining how the fire axe got stuck in the wall in the Carpenter movie. Also clarified that the Thing can't replicate inorganic things like jewelry or tooth fillings, so that clears up the ending to the Carpenter movie a bit.

^ this proves my point that the most negative reactions come from Alien fanboys.

Can't wait to read reviews after the new Blade Runner comes out.

Men in Black 3

I thought it was okay, certainly better than the second one (what I remember of it). There was moments during the film were jokes just weren't funny or things just didn't make sense / add up but it was still okay.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

Well if I remember it was originally supposed to be The Rock in that film, so make a sequel with Li & The Rock.

I've talked to many Alien fanboys that have read the books and comics numerous times that enjoyed the movie, though they thought some stuff could be explained a bit better.

I'm also really looking forward to the new Blade Runner. The book and movie are both superb and any more to that universe will make me happy.

Prometheus made me angry.

I loved it for about an hour. The look is fantastic, the case is great, the seed of an idea is outstanding sci-fi fun. But at some point along the way the studio conspired to give 2/3 of a movie and slice out everything that happened to connect interesting moments from the midway point on. I wasn't shocked to see the Blu-Ray advertised at the end of the credits - I'm 100% certain it'll be a "definitive Director's Cut" with a ton more scenes that make the second/third acts something more than the wham-bang nonsense it was.

I hate Damon Lindelof now, and I'm ashamed that I sat through the entire Lost abortion while he wrote it into complete mediocrity. He co-wrote this and his stupid "let's introduce a plot element for no reason, because it might seem cool!" and "let's have the cast say the most obvious/idiotic dialogue when it comes time to move the plot along!" are all over Prometheus. I actually felt bad for Ridley Scott, because the movie was beautifully set up, only to have ham-fisted character development and plot "twists" jammed in all over the place as it went along.

I couldn't figure out why the screenplay talked down to us with Charlize Theron's and Idris Elba's stupid proclamations (if you saw it, you probably know what I'm talking about) and the male doctor's reaction to their discoveries. Eh... what? What reality does Lindelof live in?

But seeing the final credit told me the studio will have more for us in October... which I'm thinking is the REAL version of the movie without a rushed second half. I guess we'll see, but I think this was a dishonest portrayal of the movie if that was their marketing plan from day one... and it still doesn't let Lindelof off the hook for the stupidity of the second half. Shame on you, Damon. If they keep offering you an opportunity to stupidify your favorite movie franchises, just say no. We've had enough of cadet Kirk going to captain on a ship he's not assigned to in about the span of a day, as well as the numerous specific problems that popped up in the second half of Prometheus.

Of course, this is just my opinion. Could have been great. Was ultimately not.

Here's a very interesting discussion about the themes and happenings in the movie: http://cavalorn.live...135.html#cutid1http://cavalorn.live...135.html#cutid1

Watched Fright Night due to the discussion about it and I liked it.

It's a good movie, but I can see how people who are hung up on the original wouldn't like it, but those people probably wouldn't like any remake no matter how great it was.

Saw Prometheus. Definitely not what i was expecting after months of anticipation and obsession. Pretty cliche bs at points.but honestly. I loved it.I dont know exactly why. But the mystery and how it progressed without giving you too much is actually what I liked about it. Never been a huge fan of Alien either. Besides the first two movies they have all sucked bags of dicks. Its the strange universe of Alien that is the main draw really.meh.
