    The 3D in Coraline was breathtaking. Depth of field was astounding. That's the only time I thought it worth the trouble taken. Too bad Dakota Fanning's and Teri Hatcher's voices were so grating they basically ruined the film for me. If only they'd cast other actors...

    Wanted to watch all the Alien movies before Prometheus for the hell of it and wow no one ever told me how good Aliens is, I'd only seen the first one. Instant favorite, that's how a sci-fi movie is done.

    WOW to watch Aliens for the first time! It's the perfect action film. Did you see the theatrical cut or the extended version? The extended one is even better, i barely even watch the theatrical one any more, i remember being so blown when i finally got to see the longer cut.

    Saw Moonrise Kingdom last night. I thought it was good, but not great. It was well done and definitely Wes Anderson, but I just didn't get the same feelings for the movie that were engendered by Royals, Rushmore and to some extent Aquatic. Oh well, it's still better than Darjeeling, which I also liked. I'd say Moonrise Kingdom is tied for third with Life Aquatic.

    Anyone for ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ with Dame Judi Dench leading the way? I kind of want to see it.

    I meant the question sincerely even though it came out snarky. I'm not really a fan of the series (love Aliens, saw Alien over a decade ago and didn't care for it, slept on the other two) but if anything, it seems like Prometheus would appeal less to those who are.

    You are correct. Grandma's just being a contrarian. On its own it's a decent movie but when they crammed it down our throats as an Alien prequel (and it seems clear this was wholly the studio's intention, not Scott's) it is riddled with holes.

    But now that I'm becoming more convinced of Scott's intended allegory I'm getting even more annoyed with it.

    He really is the best part about the shit movie and then has a ridiculous out of nowhere death.

    And the CGI is too funny.

    Prometheus has been on my mind a lot this week. And something I realized that was a big part of my apathetic response to it was the characters. In the first two films, I really rooted for Sigourney's character. She was very likeable, and made it easy to be on her side. Prometheus contained absolutely no characters anywhere near as appealing. Noomi Rapace's character was the only one who was even remotely tolerable, but even she was no more than a 6 or 7 out of 10 on the charisma scale.

    Maybe the extra 20 to 30 minutes in the directors cut will give us a little more in characters. Also I guess there was supposed to be a big fight scene between Shaw and the Engineer but Ridley didn't find it realistic. It'll be a deleted scene on the dvd.

    The thing about the older movies, aside from Ripley, was that all the characters felt real, especially in the first Alien. I heard a review recently that mentioned the original film almost felt like it was ad-libbed, all the dialogue was so natural and all the over-talking in the table scenes really felt like a fly on the wall conversation. Even in Cameron's film, it's a military film and everything is focused and to to the point and all the joking and shit-talking felt natural for the characters.

    In Prometheus almost all of the "personality" given to the characters feels forced, especially in the geologist and biologist characters, both of whom i didn't buy for a second. Besides verbally stating their professions, they offered absolutely nothing to lead me to believe that they were of any value to the mission whatsoever, and they were unfunny assholes. The captain was the only member of the crew that made think of the earlier films.

    I think the major flaw with the characters isn't that there wasn't enough information given, but rather that they were just written and played totally wrong.

    Save for the Shaw and David, and the aforementioned captain, who were all great.

    I Watched The Patriot last night for the first time in probably 10 years. It's a lot dumber and sappier than i remembered - I never realized is was directed by Roland Emmerich. Even so, once it kicks into high gear it's pretty damn entertaining. The battle scenes are really exquisite. Emmerich has a great eye for massive violence and mayhem, which this movie has plenty of - canon balls knocking people's heads off, Mel Gibson chopping people up with an axe, hundreds of extras blowing each other to bits in open fields, an entire village being burnt to death. There's enough of this to not really care about historical inaccuracies, non-accents, and the snappy quips of all the supporting soldier roles. It pretends to be a highfalutin drama the same way that Pearl Harbor,m but at least Emmerich had enough sense to make the focus of the film its revenge-story core and as much brutal, relentless, hard R-rated violence as possible, all shot as lovingly as Terrence Malick shoots nature. Jason Isaacs, as I remembered, is the real treat in the whole thing, but it's a shame he's not in it more. He plays the sadistic villain a quiet intensity and a subtlety that seems downright out of place amongst all the noise of the rest of the movie.
