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.
Haha I know right... somehow it's evaded me. Now I can see how it has 100% on RT and shit but yeah had no idea what to expect.
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.
Yeah it was the extended version. Great way to see it for the first time I guess.
Best Prometheus review ever. 100 percent spoilers enclosed!
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.
this isn't like you're watching the first mission impossible as a ten year old for the first time. pay afuckingttention.
I have not seen Moonrise Kingdom yet, and who knows when it will finally get released in Hawaii, but this made me chuckle:
TMZ doesn't recognize Malick as it stalks Benicio del Toro trying to work with him.
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.
But now that I'm becoming more convinced of Scott's intended allegory I'm getting even more annoyed with it.

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.
