Saw Prometheus at a midnight premiere with a friend. I thought it was solid, not Alien or Blade Runner, but still really good. Fassy did kill it like everyone said he hit just the right level of uncanny valley.

I hope I'm not late but I'm dying to know:
if you saw Prometheus, how scary was it? I am terrible with scary movies but I kind of want to see this one...

and yeah I've never seen Alien bc like I said... scary.

Not very. It's just a lot of loud noises.

But I'm Jason Voorhees, so what do I know.
deadtree 9th-Jun-2012 11:54 pm (UTC)
your input is not as helpful as I would have liked Mr Voorhees.

I'm a chicken when it comes to scary movies and this is not scary at all.
sowhat_whocares 10th-Jun-2012 01:19 am (UTC)
its more intense and gross than "scary". a lot of the concepts for the Aliens (in the sense of the creatures from the first movies) was disgusting as fuck. if you have trypophobia (like me) I suggest closing your eyes during the last 10 minutes.

it wasnt like horror movie scary, where something pops out at you you arent expecting. its just gross, like mucus and and slime and stuff growing inside people, etc.

It's not that scary imo. Lots of body horror, tho. But I feel like you defs won't appreciate it as much if you haven't seen Alien.

"Prometheus" was just OK. The first 90 minutes were disjointed and the film couldn't decide on what it wanted to be. The last half-hour was "Oh, wait, this is an 'Alien' prequel." Then it got better.

Noomi's acting was kind of terrible in places and she often came across as Nancy Drew trying to solve her latest case. Charlize has nothing to do here except stand around and be the ice queen.

Overall, it's hard not to feel let down.
sowhat_whocares 10th-Jun-2012 01:17 am (UTC)
disagree on everything except Charlize...what a boring and useless role. and even the "twist" for her character was dumb and didnt matter.

Man Prometheus was so mediocre. So fucking disappointed. Seriously the more I think about the movie, the angrier I get. The visuals and acting was good, and that's about it.
sowhat_whocares 10th-Jun-2012 01:15 am (UTC)
just got back from Prometheus...I liked it a lot, I like a lot of the concepts of the ship and the technology...I liked that most the people on board reacted exactly like anybody else would when they were afraid, etc.

I did NOT LIKE the creatures that gave birth to the Alien (not the Engineers...that thing that killed the Engineer at the end...with the pods and weird shit on it...FUCK YOU FUCK NO THAT WAS NOT OKAY NOT OKAY).

also, the surgery machine Elizabeth used was friggin rad...thats a cool concept.

You mean the huge ass proto-Facehugger? Oh man, as soon as the squid thing came out of her I turned to my friend and was like "IT'S A FUCKING SQUID FACEHUGGER" and she didn't believe me but then when it wrapped around the Engineer and you could clearly see it was a Facehugger in its early stages of evolution, OH GOD IT WAS SO FUCKING CREEPY NHFT

Prometheus:

PLOT HOLES, ANYONE?!
babydontsweat 10th-Jun-2012 06:09 am (UTC)
prometheus was fucking excellence. holy shit.
bodyline 10th-Jun-2012 06:29 pm (UTC)
Prometheus was good but my biggest issue with it was that it was very obviously made with the intention that there would be sequels, so ultimately it just acted as a set-up for a bigger story. Which may turn out to be fine, once the sequels are actually here, but as of now it was just disappointing how it left me waiting for more to explain wtf was going on.

Having said that, I thought you could piece together what was going on rather easily if you'd see Alien and paid attention to David's dialogue. Elizabeth obviously didn't know wtf was going on, but that was what made the last scene so meaningful imo - it was dramatic irony because the audience (and David) now knows what the Engineers were making, but she doesn't.

That's why I was kind of surprised when I read some of the reviews on Tubmlr that were confused about what the Engineers's plans for humanity were.
David's line about how in order to create, you must first destroy, made it kind of obvious to me that they were planning to use humans as the hosts to create the Xenomorphs. I mean if you look at what Ash says about the Xenos in Alien, he calls them the "perfect organism", and the perfect Xeno that we see in that movie and in Aliens is the one born from a human host. idk maybe I was just trying to connect it to Alien more, but the fact that they had the huge mural of the Xenomorph and the placement of it, the way it was carved made it look like it was almost their deity. So I feel like their ultimate goal and what they were actually engineering wasn't humans for the sake of humanity, they were using them as the stepping stones for something greater.


That probably made no sense but whatever. Idris Elba was hot. :')

I watched a ton of movies this past week...finally saw the entirety of Mrs. Doubtfire, saw Prometheus on Thursday...I only got to watch half of Black Dynamite with some friends cuz we were gonna see Safety Not Guaranteed later that evening. We even stayed for the Q&A that had the director and some of the actors, too! I'm trying to make it a goal to watch 50 movies this year, but at this rate, I might make it to 100.
