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.
