Why do we watch movies? Some would say it's just a way to pass the time. Others would say they watch movies for their entertainment values, the spectacle and escapism they provide. Others would say a good story is the reason. Others would say it's because of the artistry and craftsmanship that goes into putting together a movie, the process through which a movie is created, the work and effort required to bring all individual elements together and make them function as one, complete and flowing piece of work. Others would say it's because of the themes and messages movies can transmit, the existential questions movies dare to ask or the contrast with…
Prometheus has landed; finally. After months of spoiler-heavy trailers we get to see if it really is a prequel to Alien and whether Ridley Scott’s return to the universe he helped establish was worth the 33 year wait. Unfortunately, even having seen the film, the answers to both these questions remain unclear.
Whilst it is a prequel in the broadest sense (i.e. existing within the same universe and occurring before the events of the previous film) it is clear why they were coy when explaining how closely it related to Alien. For me this sideways prequel is a blessing. It doesn’t directly demystify elements of the ‘79 classic but it teases familiar imagery and ideas making the film appear richer…
The ratings of Prometheus are really all over the place, especially from people who have opinions in which I value and respect. There's really nothing I find more intriguing than that, honestly. I think the one thing almost everyone can agree on is that Michael Fassbender as, the film-loving android, David really stole the show. He was the most believable character and he wasn't even supposed to be human. The one character I had the hardest time with was "digesting" Logan Marshall-Green as a Doctor, he was loathsome and I'm not even sure if it was supposed to be intentional or not.
(This is really the only comparison I'm going to make to Alien, I promise.) I did not have…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
How far would you go to get your answers?
Yup saw it again. Went to see it with a friend that hadn't seen it yet, and believe it or not I enjoyed it even more the second time. My initial thoughts on the first viewing can be read here, where I ramble on for quite a bit. I fully believe the more times you watch this film the more you get out of it. This is one of those films where viewers will form theories about what it all means. I'll run just a few by you real quick.
I think the main theme of this film is "sacrifice for preserving/creating life versus preserving you're own life at the…
2nd time watch for me, the first being in-theater on release. I recall being OK with Prometheus on first run, and while I agree with most of those who criticize the film for its logic flaws and simple characterizations - I also think those criticisms put the film on a unfair pedestal especially considering its movie DNA. The Alien films are vapid fun, loaded with human cartoons making bad decisions... Why can't Prometheus follow in those footsteps whilst adding more mythos and a cinematography upgrade?
I was wrong... it was so wrong... to think that Prometheus might be a hidden gem that will reveal more of its treasure on multiple viewings. Because watching it again only refreshed my memory of what disappointed me two years back. Is it really a prequel to Alien or is it a standalone feature that shares only strands of DNA with that horror masterpiece? As it turns out, there is still no definite answer to this question.
Set in the late 21st century & taking place in the same universe as other films of Alien franchise, Prometheus concerns a team of explorers who discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth in the form of a star map & embark…
It's been a few years since I last watched this film. With fresh eyes and some distance from all of the Pre-Alien hype, I have to admit this is a masterpiece. The only issues this movie has is when you're looking for connections to the Alien franchise.
Ridley Scott is a master director, and even at his age is at the top of his game. Prometheus is great science fiction.
The other problem with the movie is that it's supposedly the first in a trilogy. We don't know where the story is headed and how some of the holes will be filled.
The biggest questions for me is how do the alien's continue to evolve now that there are no…
Better every time I watch it
Prometheus is a good prequel to the Alien movies but it doesn't come close to being as as Alien or Aliens. The story is fine, the acting and the pacing are good but it didn't have that tension the Alien movies had. The final 20 minutes get more interesting and we get to see more of the creature (I won't spoil it) but it needed more action and more tension to make it even better. If you like the Alien movies, you should watch Prometheus. 3.5/5 OR 7/10
An interesting sci-fi, which I enjoyed more then critics and audiences. Directed by Ridley Scott.
Sebuah perjalanan 'Sci-fi' dari Ridley Scoot tentang usaha manusia mencari penciptanya (Tuhan?). Cukup berani, namun bergerak begitu lambat.
Sebagai prekuel dari saga Alien, pondasi yang cukup kokohpun terbangun dengan baik, walau beberapa plot hole tersebar disana-sini. Semoga terbayarkan di 'Prometheus: Covenant' yang kabarnya akan ber-rating Dewasa (Violent-Intense).
Damn that movie sucks
Prometheus is a 2012 science fiction film. Directed by Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner) starring Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Michael Fassbender (Shame, Inglorious Bastards) and Charlize Theron (Monster, The Devil's Advocate). The film is set in the same universe as the Alien franchise and is arguably a prequel to 1979's Alien.
The film follows the spaceship Prometheus carrying a crew tasked with discovering the origins of mankind and the universe based on extensive research by Dr Elizabeth Shaw (Rapace). This expedition has been financed and set up by the Weyland corporation and Peter Weyland himself (played by Guy Pierce), as such Weyland representative Meredith Vickers (Theron) and Weyland's personal android David (Fassbender) are along for the…
It's a decent concept but falls short several times. I'm honestly surprised the same guy made The Martian and Alien.
