Prometheus - the reviews are as split as John Hurt's chest

Here's a (first?) review from the Guardian. Perhaps a bit more plot info than necessary, it's given three out of five and described as a bit muddled but there's a wonderful performance from Fastbender and spectacular visuals. My own 2 cents are that Scott has made a couple of mediocre and one or two overrated films in recent years , personally I don't think that he has ever come near to matching the sheer brilliance of his two early films Blade Runner and Alien. I was planning to go and see this one in the cinema until the review mentioned the overtly high volume of the soundtrack. I regularly listen to loud rock music but I find the levels that cinemas now blast sound into our ears so uncomfortable that it's to the point of being unbearable. Why the f*** they put us through this I do not know!

Thumbs up

Saw it last night... Beautiful visuals (awesome job by MPC and Weta). Movie isn't spectacular as there are several plot holes that either there on purpose to make you think afterwards or simply because too much has been cut out (waiting for the directors cut...). It's visually incredible though. Planning on watching it again in IMAX soon.
BTW if you have seen the Trailer (not the teaser) then you have pretty much seen everything in terms of scenery and major plot twists... so please don't watch any featurette,vids beforehand!

Everything that I see about this film makes me think that it has great odds of being nominated for Best Visual Effects but what is it about the visuals that is so beautiful? Are there many vistas and such?

A bit far to say it's a completely new design motif, but it is still badass, so wtf.

There are no new spoilers that haven't already been spoiled in the first two regular trailers, but if you're avoiding all things, then avoid this too.


A cool featurette that, and spoiler free. I have to admit, it will be hard not to like this film given the environment it's set in. A spectacular example of cg scifi. I was debating seeing it in 3D (given some poor prior experiences) until I saw the trailer with Avengers (and Avengers went down very nicely too).

Somehow I am looking foward to this movie just for the simple fact of travelling in space and landing on unknown planets. Sci-fi is the only genre that delivers real escapism for me.
