See, me, as an astronomy buff, I can totally say that space is, in fact, a real place. What this movie made me feel was space is danger, sickness, madness and hostility wrapped in silence and suffocation. Only Alien managed to capture this feel of rejection from the very beginning.
I see the awful cliches lifted from the first Alien movie. But seeing the painstaking detail put into it, I think it was deliberate. It makes me think, it's a homage, or a throw back rather than just another cliche.
Or maybe I was just so starved for a real, good hard science fiction. I needed it to smack my ass and pull my hair. Maybe that's why I welcomed it like I did.
On other note, it's pronouced no-mee rah-pahs
Prometheus EXPLAINED - Movie Review (SPOILERS)
I LOVED this movie, it's the "Source Code" of this year for me. One of Cyrus’s complaints is only slightly relevant to me, it feels like he's looking for something more he shouldn't as far as 'More Explaining" since Prometheus has a lot of the "SHOW DON’T TELL” rule going for it. I mean, I can SEE the script written to explain more, but that would probably just turn into another complaint, right? Too MUCH Telling?
And I think they didn't wanna dig too deep into the Christian Philosophy/Ancient Aliens comparison because of the possible big-ass religious backlash from some audiences. For me, they touched on it, we’re smart enough to get it, we got it, we’re GOOD. Think about how it’s similar to Tron Legacy: touching on the issues of Perfection, Philosophy and questions of the Human Condition, but never having some highly extensive debate about it. We get it. There are nitpicks for Prometheus sure, but not enough to the point where this is anything below a Full Price.
It will definitely be on my Top-Ten List of the year, very close with The Hunger Games and Chronicle, but I don’t know which will be ahead of the other yet. Despite loving it, I thought I'd post another well-known reviewer’s conflicted thoughts on the movie…
I'm just going to leave this here.
Sufficed to say; massive spoilers.
I see all the issues and criticisms of the film and appreciate their validity. Even so I really liked this film.
I think the film's logical flaws, holes and inconsistencies come from the film passing through so many hands and being the fruit of so many different labors with different directions and aims in mind.
That being said, I immediately saw LV-223 and wondered what was up with that and never got a satisfactory answer from the film. Unless this is Lindeloff's Dharma Project writ large and LV-223 is the Swan and LV-426 is the Arrow.
It is also totally unclear to me as to why the Engineer wants to kill the human explorers or what the recorded images of the Engineers are running from or to.
My hope is that a sequel of sorts in the works as I'd like to see these trailing plotlines resolved. At least I'd like to see where Shaw and David end up.
oh, and another thing about landing in the perfect place on a planet.
Why the heck you gonna land on a spot that will go dark in 2 hours :p
I liked the movie, despite it's flaws, and I'd recommend to friends of the genre.Observations:Charleze Theron's icy character is a b*tch becasue her father, Weyland seemed to appreciate his 'son', David, more than her is what I got out of it.I thought David poisoned the Lead's lover out of spite at first but realized he was prolly just doing Weyland's bidding to 'test' it out.When Shaw stumbles in on Weyland and the two docs she pummeled, it took a wierd turn like.,oh,..didn't u just punch me, where is the alien baby? Nevermind,..let's go check out the engineer.I didn't like how the two geologists were freaked by the headless alien, then wants to pet the Eel thingie?
Did I miss something? I Hate when in these movies they find some planet then ALWAYS land right were sh*t is going down,..! I know why but jeez,.did they take a 'reading'?I like that there was no true and al answer,..I like how the engineer woke up and was F*ck u all and went beserk. I think any answer we get from a movie about some profound origin Mission to Mars type story will ever live up to 'expectation' simply becasue we don't know that that expectation is!:pLow Full Price: but see it in IMAX with buds. Because it's pretty and the sound is good. : )
Somewhat less favourable review:
I watched it last night. What a huge disappointment! I was expecting a movie that had that same creepy sci-fi tone we saw in the Alien films. All we got is an above average movie with no plausible connection to the Alien films. Why is there a proto-xenomorph on LV-223 when it was already established that the ship that crashed on LV-426 was carrying eggs. I also think the mystery of the Space Jockeys was ruined. That's it? Giant Albino Monks? This is what we waited all these years for? Why were they mad at us? The movie never explains it. They're just hostile because the movie wants them to be. I also don't see what was so interesting about David. I've seen his character before. This movie was a waste of time. Just give us a good Alien film. I longer give a shit about Prometheus.
