I liked Prometheus. It had a few surprises I did not see coming. Ridley Scott delivered.

I thought Prometheus COULD HAVE been a good movie. It failed. I believe Ridley is getting long in the tooth. Alien was an incredibly tense little movie that needed only a minimum of special effects, a gem! His blade runner was great (though i will alienate a few of you by saying i did not like the directors cut...but i generally do not like directors cuts).

Prometheus was me looking at my friends afterward and saying WTF? Weak and predictable plot line with gratuitous effects with little or no purpose.

That movie surprised you? I thought it was incredibly horribly predictable, and pretty much said what was going to happen before it did.

The only thing I didn't see coming was how bad it was going to suck. Sorry, but I don't think I've ever looked so forward to a movie and been more let down than I was with Prometheus.

You liked this film? You're definitely in the minority there. That's OK. I know how it goes. I think I was the only person in the world who enjoyed The Postman.
