Well can't help the way I feel about it, but like I said, it is a good movie, just not so much for a fan (unless you are into tentacles)

Edit: I read your review and I guess we are on the same page, I didn't feel quite as bad but definitely the last bit felt wrong somehow.

THAT smells like LOST to me. I loved that show up to a point. It was frequently writing itself up to a wall and just dropping threads by abruptly killing a character off. Charles Widmore and John Locke are prime examples. It's really more a hallmark of the writer's style. I'd really like to know who contributed what at this point. I don't want to assume, but where there is smoke...

In the end it had to come through Ridley. No point in trying to know which ideas came from Lindelof.

That sound's awful. :(

 I actually love riddles. Hope he gets another chance at this franchise.

This all sounds very confusing  :o I haven't seen all the trailers and I haven't kept up with the threads so I know nothing but it sounds hectic.

A shame its not going down too well, if this doesn't work it could end the Alien franchise :(

I think part of truely enjoying a movie is understanding what went into making it. This is true for good and bad. I am just curios what each of the three principals involved brought to it. Yes, ultimately all of it was done with Scott's approval. Really that's fine. It's his vision. He honed it. He crafted it. Watch any of his interviews and you quickly come away with the notion that he has no problem asserting himself to get what he wants. I do believe thought that sometimes it takes another voice to temper a visionary. In time we'll know more about the crafting of the story. I do want read Spaight's spec script. I read Shadow 19 and Passengers in an attempt to see what this guy was about.  He has been tight lipped about what he wrote. Maybe that will change after the film is out in all areas.

What did you think of Shadow 19?  I'm reading it now, the beginning is certainly cool.

I really don't know where to begin. The film was such a massive deception. My first feeling is definitely Anger. The movie is very lazy and insulting at some point.  >:(

Conclusion:
I'm going to watch it again to be sure and I hope this is just my review of the Theatrical Cut. I really hope the Blu-Ray Cut will be superior cause at the moment this Prometheus really doesn't match with ALIEN. Definitely. In all way.

A shitty Tatopoulos style design
'Tatopoulos' and 'shitty' don't belong in the same sentence.


That's just like, your opinion, man. Then again, my lurkings on the forum have informed me that while i'm as big a monster fan as you are (for reals!), we have quite different tastes. (lol, american godzilla ::))

So I'm getting two very different angles here, some are saying it basically looks good but a huge disappointment whilst some are saying its not great but good.

Going this Sun but my hopes are lowered now.

Maybe I'm wrong. Can't remember but I've just noticed that when Janek says "Kill Everything, Do You copy me ? "in the first International Trailer is not in the movie. Probably one more proof that this Theatrical Cut is a shame. We will have to wait for the Extended Cut to give a definitive opinion on the movie.
