Not pumped, interested and surely getting it through a cheap DVD in a supermarket someday, comments I've seen seem to indicate a huge buzz for little content beside visual quality.

Seems that the French critics have panned it, but then again the French have never been big on producing/watching sci-fi films.

The UK critics seem to be giving rather favorable reviews.

Didn't know, got infected with the virus growing up with a sci-fi geek elder brother, who was making me mix-tapes of movies OST like Star Wars, Star Treck or Giorgio Moroder, Jean-Michel Jarre and Vangelis tracks. I've never seen someone else put a model of Yoda atop the X-mas tree Lol

I used to curse the US for cutting short Sci-Fi series like I mentionned here...

It has a big setup but weak payoff.

I'm not sure who this movie is for tbh, or even why it was made.

Only thing going for it is the Direction and production values - script is fuckin' weak and the trailers give pretty much everything away.

I'll watch it, even though I do not need to.

Just hope Ridley Scott doesn't screw up bladerunner, because this'll get panned.

Saw it at a screening on Tuesday, beautiful (particularly liked the opening credits, they really show off the 3D), but it lacks pace, and much of it lends nothing to the plot, it remains a series of set pieces that fail in the end to be properly scary (a couple of jumps). If you know your art history there are images everywhere, from Blake's drawings, to sculpture, Athlete Wrestling with a snake by Lord Leighton and Rodin's gates of hell (a good sign that I was bored). It certainly doesn't have the drama of the first one.

I love that Swedish girl from Millenium movies (girl with the dragon tattoo etc.) - not in this especially, just saying I love her, and Idris Elba (stringer bell in the Wire) is great even though his part is too small imo.

I enjoyed it kind'a, but the trick is not minding that it stank!

Here is a conundrum for you that says it all - (a bit of serendipity it came from countdown just a few minutes ago)

Yes, we're all different. Take a look at this - I thought this was really funny/good.

More interested in the new James Bond movie, personally. Ever since David Craig started playing Bond, I've left the movie feeling like there was blood, grit, and bone fragments that I needed to sweep off of me. It will be awesome.

I preferred Sean Connery.

Since it is Ridley Scott, yes there will be sex. Or more accurate term would be "Surprise Sex". I watched prometheus and I can say that I am rather impressed.



SPOILERS BELOW














There is "Surprise Sex" and Immaculate conception, Peter Weyland playing a large part in the film. This predates the "Weyland Mittani" corporation, in this timeline the Mittani corp that has the predator tech from AVP is hinted at but not in a huge way.

Oh did I mention there is a Autistic Guy called David? Yeah he is really cool, he follows orders and dosent afraid of anything. I think he might be a robot and not actually autistic, maybe both. SpaceJockeys make an appearance and they are all evil and ****, Or are they?....

Yes I get the joke but this is a nutty fanbase going back to the 70s P

I'll watch it regardless because I'm a fan of Ridley Scott and his approach to sci-fi.
More so, I'm so much of a fan of the Alien series that I even enjoyed the AVP movies, so clearly I just like anything that adds to that universe.
