Default prometheus

went to see it today
If you are a fan of alien you pretty much need to see it
If not its a good monster movie anyway

the "space jockeys" from alien are explained, but i thought the plot was a stretch
if you seen ancient aliens on history channel you can figure out where its going pretty quickly

what did you think?

Hmmmm . . . need to hear more. I've seen mostly (about 90% last time checked) BAD or mediocre reviews. I was planning on waiting for Redbox but if the good reviews keep coming in . . .

Basically, if you like Ridley Scott's other films you will like it. My wife can't stand his other films and did not like this one. It is typical of his other sci-fi films. Full of suspense, dark lighting and as with his other films, it leaves a few questions unanswered. Can't really say more without spoiling the movie.

if you are going to see it, see it in the theatre
its one of those movies where you really need to pay attention, and on a small screen i dont think it will translate well

i give it a B
it won't set your brain on fire, but it's still a damn good thrill ride

I loved the Alien movies and Blade Runner and wanted to see this pretty bad. Looks like I'll be going alone, which is fine, the wife hates this kind of stuff.

Saw it last night. It was OK, but not great IMO. It was in 3D and visually, it was absolutely stunning. But I just thought the story jumped all over the place.

Aliens is one of my favorite movies BTW.
