Prometheus

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Jun 28 2012 · 137 views

life movies Prometheus
Non-spoiler:
Never has a fantastic movie been so terrible.
Or never has a jumbled mess of a film looked so great.

Which is actually saying two different things.

I had heard, going in, that it was very scenic and introduced some very nice "big ideas." I had also heard it had too many big ideas to satisfactorily answer even a few of those. What I did not know was that some of the things they put in made no sense and provided nothing to the story, or that there was potential for foreshadowing that was not followed up upon.

What really got my goat was how cliche and stereotypical tropish so many scenes were. I had expected more from Ridley Scott.

I'm glad I free passes, but I don't blame you for paying full price to see it (which apparently now is $12 at my theater D: ). But I also don't blame you for wanting your money back, or waiting.

It needs a sequel. Or two.
It set up a bunch of ideas and concepts into the Alien universe but hasn't answered all of them. I believe this is intentional in order to prolong the Prometheus story without losing any of the mystery. Even when the Prometheus story is finished, I don't think it will be a direct link to the Alien movies. It will explain everything about the space jockeys and the xenomorphs in more detail than was even suggested in the series but won't lead directly into it.
But all in all, I don't think people should look at this movie as just one movie but rather the first chapter in an ongoing series. Even when the movies are finished, it'll probably be continued through comics or something.
That's not to say that this movie has its faults, just that some people may be mistaking some faults for metaphorical seeds that will grow as more of the story is revealed.

Also,

Agree. It left a lot of things just lying around, but the movie felt so good I was okay ignoring it's inadequacies.
