    Prometheus.

    I'm done with Scott.

    Frustratingly it wasn't a bad film. Great cast, great premise and obviously the 'great visuals' everyones banging on about, but it had nothing.

    I'm not so much pissed off that it didn't answer anything, more pissed off that the idea of a prequel to alien was barely explored at all.

    The "aliens were sent in as population control by our creator" plot was pretty much summed up in the trailer and the film didn't elaborate on that at all.

    It can't use the excuse of 'suspense' (which is redundant in modern, formulaic cinema anyway) because there was none. There was no character worth remembering - just that she resembled Sig's character and will probably end up being Sig's great grandmother or something.

    Literally nothing happened. At all. Even when you do meet one of the 'engineers' he doesn't even fucking say anything. The arrogant introduction to Fassbender's and Pearce's characters could have atleast guarenteed an easy 10 minutes of worth while dialogue to make the film worth fucking sitting through. No. He kills everyone and extinguishes any chance of the film redeeming itself.

    Again, with so much wrong with it, bizzarely I can't condem it, but I wont be watching either of the next two cash ins.

    AVP had more plot.

    It's brutal, in the way OldBoy was brutal, and very awesome. 2 of my favourite Korean actors together and it's such a good combo

    only good thing about spiderman is the action scenes cuz of how spidey moved but the movie isnt that good to me. pacing and plot issues. I didnt like the dialogue that much and the lizard looks like killer croc

    I actually enjoyed it. It actually captured a lot of how he was. Batman begins was the same way. Developed the character well then when the dark knight came up, it was action and all of the good plot and stuff. Spiderman was the same way. I think you'll have a more negative reaction to it if you go into it expecting it to be like the Avengers. Which it isn't but still a great film.

    Good imo.. the action / visuals were obviously good, and I enjoyed the acting and characters, the backstory / scientific factors were interesting and the cast was strong. It had some funny / cool moments too, It's a good time. Also the 3D was dope imo.. I'd recommend it. I didn't leave the movie with any major issues, although some things could've obviously been done better.
