Prometheus movie

Really excited by this film. To have Ridley Scott revisiting the Alien Universe is amazing, the various trailers all looking great, The cast is high class, and the viral campaigns surrounding the movie are neat and impressive.

Anyone here eagerly awaiting this film?

The Alien series had rather lost its way, reaching the bottom with the rubbish AVP 2...

Hopes are high that this addition to the Universe can equal both Scott's original Alien and Cameron's similarly impressive Aliens.

Alien 3 for me, though it had interesting aspects, casts asides two much loved characters in the opening scenes, and I never really forgave it for that. In renders the happy ending to Aliens meaningless.

The fourth Alien movie again had some good ideas, but again disappointed compared to the first two.

Then we get to the AVP films. Whilst I didn't think the first one was as bad as some said, it was by the numbers stuff, and the second as I said, stank.

Re: Prometheus movie

i'll surely go and see it, too. the cast is rather impressive. on the other hand, ridley scott has made so many average to bad films in recent years, that a win is certainly not guaranteed. we'll see.

"alien" and "aliens" are simply sic-fi classics. i also liked 1997's "alien: resurrection". only "alien≥" by that overrated dork david fincher should be erased from cinematic history.

I read somewhere that Fincher hates Alien 3? Certainly it was troubled...

I do think there are some good ideas in the film...nothing was gonna top the action of the second film, so having it on a planet without weapons and only one Alien was a nice direction to go in.

But the idea of having everyones heads shaved, and identically dressed made it incredibly hard to identify the Prisoners as individuals, especially when running at speed down corridors...this made them more Alien fodder, rather than the living breathing characters of the first two films, who you grew to care about.

As I say though, it's great fault is doing away with two well-liked characters in the opening of the movie. Characters we'd invested a lot in during Aliens.

That led to resentment among many fans, and it was an uphill battle from there...

About Scott, Alien is so perfect a film that I'm willing to overlook his recent shaky form. Certainly when talking about Prometeus he shows an excitement he hasn't done for a long time.

I'm even eagerly waiting for every new trailer to come out, let alone the film itself

It really looks great and the music sounds phenomenal.
The cast is pretty good too, except for Fassbender (I don't like him) but wahtever.

Do no harm, but take no shit.

A lot of Alien 3's problems come from the script, not Fincher's direction. Plus, Fincher basically hates that movie and complains to this day how the studio wouldn't let him do anything he wanted with the movie. Although, this is coming from someone who thinks he's one of the best directors working today. In my opinion, The Social Network was a masterpiece, elevating what could have been a generic courtroom drama into a shakespearean tragedy.

Prometheus looks great though, the trailers are amazing and despite Scott's recent missteps, at least he is back working in his best genre. It's one of my most anticipated movies of the summer.
