Prometheus.

Loved it. Not perfect, but very, very good. I saw it twice this weekend and felt it was better the second time, when I wasn't thinking about Alien and watching as a stand alone film.

It did lack some suspense, I didn't like the music, and the last 20 minutes were a bit rushed for me. But I will still purchase the DVD and watch it 20 more times.

The Lucky One, a romantic film, not a comedy (can't really classify it as anything other than a straightforward romantic film), not a great film, very bitty, very predictable. Certainly nothing worth going out and watching not even for those that enjoy romantic films, IMO.

Completely agree. The first time I spent the whole time wondering how they'd tie it to Alien. I thought it had a few narrative and script flaws, but I really enjoyed it - the cinematography was beautiful and the atmosphere was fantastic.

Just got back. Good film, and I was entertained the whole movie. 14yr old hated it! 19yr old liked it.

*HELLO!* It's 1) A MOVIE, 2) SCIENCE FICTION and 3) RIDLEY SCOTT

That being said, the over all film was stunning to look at. Great job with the effects from the other world landscapes, to the "caverns" to the spaceship "Prometheus".

Unlike Snow White, which had a similar running time, Prometheus rolls on smoothly, giving you enough action to not even worry about what time it is. The movie flys by pretty fast.

The movie itself balances itself between creating new questions about the Alien mythology and answering some. I don't think I'm giving anything away when I say they leave it "Open" for a sequel. (or possibly another PREQUEL- LOL )

If you leave the movie disappointed, I guess I would have to question what you went into the movie expecting. My SCI-FI appetite was completely satisfied by the film.

I don't want to spoil anything for anyone so I'll just stop my review there. It's defintiely worth the money. Not sure seeing it in 3D had any special benefit. I think we are at a stage in film making where the digital holographic 2D stuff would still look impressive.

What did you all think?
I never saw Alien so I don't think I was able to appreciate this movie completely.

WHAT! never saw Alien? What kind of,.....

Sorry, forgot that you are a women. There's nothihng wrong with that, some of my best friends are women. Hell, I even sleep with a women several nights a week.

It's just that, alot of women do not get into scifi alien movies. It's a guy thing.
Gotta admit, Sigorney Weaver in her tighty whities was pretty hot.
