    I watched it in 3D the second time I watched Prometheus, and I didn't notice it at all. I think my eyes just make everything 2D again. /coolstorybro

    I may as well just watch it in 2D (like I did the first time I saw it).

    I'm generally not a fan of 3D but Prometheus' was actually far more subtle than some crap action movie. And what with the epic scenery and the grand and contrasting scale of the shots it was actually appropriate. It wasn't used for effect in an action sense which is the usual knock on it.

    I swore off 3D after Pirahna 3D.

    This was good. I appreciate the film more with these ideas in mind. I didn't catch the 2000 years ago thing.

    Exactly. This was the first 3D movie that didn't give me a headache. Most of the films people complain about weren't even shot 3D in the first place. Prometheus, Hugo and Avatar were the only films I've seen where the 3D added to the experience and wasn't just a gimmick. In the hands of a great director and crew it can be remarkably effective.

    Immortals and Coraline were both pretty spectacular in 3D as well.

    EDIT: just remembered some others...Beowulf, the terrible movie it is, looked incredible in IMAX 3D. Transformers 3 also used 3D extremely well.

    If nothing else, the trailer gave us this gif:

    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 have not seen Moonrise Kingdom yet, and who knows when it will finally get released in Hawaii, but this made me chuckle:

    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.
