If Prometheus was as good as Alien or Aliens there'd practically be no divide amongst Aliens fans old and new. Which puts the movie on par with Alien 3 and Resurrection. I'm hearing alot of people here saying how they think Prometheus was far better than 3 and R but no real reason for it other than it looked great. You can polish a turd and dress it up so it looks really good. but underneath, if you have the brain to figure out somethings wrong and investigate for yourself, you'll see that shiny looking something is actually a big fat turd gone wrong. But i'd really like to know why some of you mainstreamers love this movie. Is it the reveal of the engineers so soon in the movie? Is it that a mega corporation funded a trillion dollars to a hunch and a vague ass cave painting? Is it Guy P's terrible old man make up? Is it that Shaw uses the carbon reader to somehow re animate a dead head for shits and giggles? Is it the geologist who never picks up a rock and gets lost in a tunnel system that he mapped? is it the lame zombie Fifield attack and not the Alien Fifield attack that was originally supposed to be used but Riddles said f**k it? Ones things for sure, those of you who did love this movie should never be allowed to make a movie of your own.
And again with the shitty comments towards people who love this movie.... Any reason why you feel the need to be rude like that?
In YOUR opinion it sucks. In the opinion of others it's a good movie, even according to some well known names in movie-reviewing. I'm very happy that yourself as the be-all-end-all when it comes to wether or not this movie is good or not, but honestly, your opinion isn't fact.
Personally, Ilove this movie because of how it deals with humanity's own illusions. We feel so great about ourself, that we asume our Gods or creators must be even better. We have solved so much already, but still have questions. Surely those that are responsible for us have the answers, right? And when we find our are creators are as much 'human' as we are, we get angry. We get disappointed. We get furious. Some of us can't even accept the answer and will try to find different ones (Shaw).
Sure, I aware of a few mistakes. But I do not see that as critical flaws, because to me, the pro's of this movie outweight the cons. Read that carefully... 'to me...'.
You hate this movie. Fine, go ahead. But stop bashing it simply for the sake of wanting others to feel bad about loving it. That's their right.
Oh, and side note.... So far, the newer, younger fans seem to be the ones who love this movie, and atleast like it. It's been my experience that it's mostly the older guard, who expected a movie almost identical to Alien/Aliens, that were disappointed. I love this movie for being feeling sometimes the same, but mostly completely different.
