Prometheus Explained... BR

The Blu Ray version explains quite alot and feels far more cohesive than the cinematic version.
I feel the longer cut should have been released instead of the hash job that everyone saw.
Was wondering if I am the only one.

I've only seen the blu-ray version and I think it's the stupidest crap I've seen in years.

could you touch on some of the subjects that have been better explained?

Well looking at the outtakes/deleted scenes, it seems nearly every one of those scenes explained the situation better. For example, many derided the Captain's behavior when concerned with leaving the planet, and ultimately trying to destroy the alien ship, one scene with Vickers explains his background, and the facts that lead him upto his decision. Cutting this out removes part of the film. I think alot of the edits in this film completely damaged it.
People who were looking for a nice shootem up should have given the film a wide birth, people looking for something with the pace of alien would have appreciated this far more if there was less studio interference.

Good observations? But the film was already a bit long at 2 hours 4 minutes, they probably had to leave some stuff out to avoid dragging it out too long.

ya, the film was too long even though it actually was quite short. You can credit this to none of the characters being likable and the plot being so stupid that it's not even funny but boring.

This is an interesting read on how the pre-Lindelof script would have played, and saying that the studio actually pushed for less direct Alien action, rather than vice versa.

I still think they should have just made it without the Alien mythos at all, but enh.

and what it is, is in my mail box waiting to be picked up. Looks too nice and has too much of a nice extras list not to order. Plus it compliments the aliens bluray set quite nicely.

Agreed. It is waste of time.

You guys must be locked in a golden cage with only a few kick ass dvd's to chose from, if you think this is the worst you've seen in years. I can't say I'm fully happy with how Prometheus turned out, but given what shit movies I've seen this year, it is still very much among the few watchable ones.

Well... halloween 3 is a close contender, but out of the movies i've seen this year Prometheus is pretty damn low on the list.

Its a run of the mill scifi film and that's fine. It looked amazing but it was pretty tame and unintresting. It felt nothing like Alien, it lacked its suspense, originality, low budget - which resulted in more original and creatively directed film. I also think the plots of Alien/Aliens/Alien3 where all better then Prometheus.

If Alien is a 10/10 film (and it is). Prometheus is a 4/10 film.

Saying that though...it really did look nice, it had some nice touches, but the story/ideas left me wanting.

The fact that an explanation has to be released is acknowledgment that they messed up first time. The fact that we have to purchase this explanation is frankly taking the p*ss. They can shove it where the sun don't shine. I have done the 'right thing' by paying good money to see this at the cinema - I wont be parting with another penny next time.
