Prometheus

If you are a fan of the Alien franchise, you are going to enjoy the latest installment in the story!

The modeling possibilities are endless!!!

It does have much modeling potential, but it was dreadfully disappointing as a film.

Yeah I wasn't too sure of what it was supposed to be... not really a backstory, not really a standalone movie... just strange.

I saw the movie last Tuesday.

I need to see it again. I was too distracted by the Prometheus and the Engineer ships to pay attention to the story. :D

Don't waste your time...
You didn't miss anything.

Guess this bitterness I feel is from the profound disappointment in this film. With the advanced CGI and techniques available today one would expect Scott to exceed his classic Alien. No such luck....
All hype and no delivery.
*sigh*

Wow, I'm shocked! I thought the backstory was really interesting. You know, the movie was created to answer the nagging question over the decades' "what is the origin of the Space Jockey."

And, I'm ready to see how the Alien evolves in the sequel to this one!

I saw the movie on Tuesday, and I thought it was a great film! Being a longtime Aliens fan, I personally found the story of how the Aliens began was interesting!
