I don't know anything about film but I'm not letting that stop me.
Very very pretty - first movie I've seen that really makes me feel like I need a new TV - but it's just OK. Nothing amazing.
My daughter really enjoyed it and managed to watch it all in one go. She struggles to sit and watch long movies so it was quite special for us to sit and watch one whole movie together, especially one I hadn't already seen a bunch of times.
I'm very happy to join the "Prometheus is good actually" club. Watching it again in line with all the previous movies, the Alien series was done for in 3 and 4 was barely OK. This was the only way to do something genuinely interesting with the lore and I really liked that it wasn't afraid to change things up.
Ooh so this one is interesting!
I have, in many of my reviews, complained that films had a lot of good ideas, good individual bits, but couldn't pull them together into a coherent whole. This movie is the other way around: I didn't love the minute to minute scenes. I thought that the action was rather poor, the aliens never quite looked right, and the characters didn't quite grab me. I think that the Alien franchise is at its best…
