Prometheus update feed

tracklete posted a review 3 years, 2 months ago

“My favorite genre of movies is sci fi. That being said, its saying a lot that there is no doubt in my mind this is the best movie I've ever seen. That's my opinion, but I truly recommend this film to anyone who like sci fi, and also recommend watching "Alien" right before you go see Prometheus. It enriched the experience for me for sure!” read more

Movie Diary: 2012 (68 movies items)

"June 8 @ Theatre (First Viewing) Gripping yet ultimately unsatisfying, primarily because it promises so much yet fails to follow through in the climax. The desire to set up a sequel was the prime reason, in my opinion. I wish people would stop shamelessly tailoring movies in this manner to accomodate sequels, it needlessly spoils the story. Despite that, one of the better non-superhero sci-fi movies in recent times."

Movies I've Seen In 3-D... (70 movies items)

"Viewed in Standard (non-IMAX) Cinema 3-D Conceived and shot in 3-D, Prometheus looks absolutely stunning in the format. With glasses on, every detail of thus majestic visual feast becomes more apparent, and the depth is absolutely killer. No shots look flat; the film looks consistently excellent. Well done, Ridley Scott! This is definitely a 3D Blu-ray to buy."

For once, a deep and complex summer movie.

“"If we don't stop it, there won't be any home to go back to!"

2012 has been a great year for movies, particularly during the summer. Summer blockbusters have always been about the spectacle, and that's perfectly fine with me. The Avengers delivered on what it promised - an entertaining and visually exhilarating ride. It started off the summer season with a bang (it garnered critical acclaim and has grossed over a billion dollars worldwide so far, making it the third highest grossing film ever), and now Ridley Scott's long-awaited Alien prequel finally hits movie theaters all around the world. There's been a lot of hype surrounding Prometheus, as it marks Scott's return to the film that started his successful career. I was excited, and even though I didn't love the first Alien fil” read more

2012 in Cinema: From Best to Worst (103 movies items)

" "A king has his reign, and then he dies. It's inevitable." In the hands of any other filmmakers, a prequel to Alien would have likely yielded a stale rehash of the franchise's established elements within a generic PG-13 action-adventure. But director Ridley Scott had other plans, and the result is 2012's Prometheus: an invigoratingly original story set within the Alien universe. To merely call Prometheus an Alien prequel is very misleading, as writers Damon Lindelof and Jon Spaihts (with input"

" Most years one or two films come along that I find to be impressive enough and purely enjoyable enough to warrant two trips to the theater to watch them. Prometheus is the first such movie to come along this year. Essentially it accomplished everything I hoped it would. Oh, I have a couple minor complaints of course. And I have more than a couple questions about the film that I'm still mulling over. But that's just one of the things that I felt worked in the film's favor. Ridley Scott's new m"

SJMJ91 posted a review 3 years, 2 months ago

A good sci-fi but a disappointing Alien prequel.

“In most recent memory, we have seen films either loosely based or are partially connected to a franchise that are set in an earlier time setting but are not directly linked to a first instalment. For example, there was Casino Royale in 2006 and Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes in 2011. However, ever since 2003 when Prometheus began development, questions arose of how close or how different the film was going to be in comparison to the Alien franchise, particularly the first film. Whether Ridley Scott served as director or not, the film was bound to be a highly-anticipated motion picture with immense expectations. Nevertheless, Scott makes a film that shows a different style to him that we have not seen from him for a while, but there was still something missing from Prometheus. Therefore, it” read more

"4.6.2012, Teatteri (2D) Vuoden yksi odotetuimpia leffoja joka sitten päätti olla melko perseestä. Ridley Scott ei vastaa juuri mihinkään kysymyksiin mitä haettiin ja sen sijaan saamme vaan läjän lisää kysymyksiä ja sekös vituttaa. Hahmot jäävät aivan älyttömän ohuiksi eikä loppupeleissä kiinnosta kuoleeko heistä joku matkan aikana. Elokuva olisi voinut loppupeleissä pitää itsensä irti Alien-leffoista, sillä ihmisten esi-isät olivat varsin kiinnostava aihe, ja sekin ry"

"Outtake from my review: Prometheus is an excellent blockbuster and is so far the best film of the year. To begin with, the visuals are so awesome that I'm on the edge of having an orgasm. It's a visual triumph. The photography is beautiful, particularly in the opening scene, where the camera floats above the landscape. It's superbly designed. Everything in it looks great. The design of the aliens, the suits, the ships, the landscapes and the small little details. Everything is carefully construc"

Flawed, but intense

“"My God, we were so wrong..."

[img id=3724603 width=300full]

You can spend ages debating whether it is a prequel or not. The references to Alien is most certainly there. But it should still be able to stand alone as one film. Which it does, even if it does raise several unanswered questions. Questions that might be addressed in possible sequel. That is unfortunately one of Prometheus flaws. There are some things that doesn't make sense, and while it is sometimes fine keep some things in the dark, I feel a bit cheated eventually. Particularly the opening raises a lot of questions.

If I am to address some of Prometheus other flaws, I need to move slightly into spoiler territory. Because there are some plot holes or just lack of logic that annoys greatly. read more

Best prequels. (26 movies items)

"Prequel to Alien (1979). It is not officially a direct prequel but Prometheus is set in an earlier time setting and is linked to Alien due to the background concepts, storyline and scenes. So, like Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes and Casino Royale, I would call Prometheus a prequel."

"Katsottu: 2.6.2012 Prometheus koettaa ratkoa näitä elämän peruskysymyksiä, kuten; mistä me tulemme, keitä me olemme ja mistä xenomorphit tulevat. Scottin kauan odotettu Alienin esiosa, ei olekaan aivan täysiverinen esiosa. Se kyllä vastaa hitusen niihin kysymyksiin, joita Alienissa jäi auki. Tosi asiassa näihin kysymyksiin ei kaivattu vastausta, ja ilman tätä elokuvaa olisi voitu ihan hyvin olla. Nyt se kuitenkin on pukattu ulos, niin pakko siitä on jotain positiivistäkin kaivaa "

The visuals are amazing and the atmosphere is very similar to Alien at times, while it's completely different at other times.
