Fassbinder is perfection.


Saw it last week. After the horrible reviews I was expecting a turkey but I really enjoyed it. It was trippy and artistic. I wish it had been creepier and scarier Like the first alien though. On the other hand I don't think ANYTHING could be as scary ad the first alien.
Ps sorry for the typos I'm on a mobile device and it's always difficult.

Totally agree, I had been looking forward to this since I first heard about it almost a year ago! I actually really really enjoyed it, but it was just not what I was expecting at all. I do wish it had had a similar feeling to the first movie, but I did love how this felt 'bigger' & I found myself getting quite into the whole mythology of this one too. Honestly though, Fassbender was the best part, he was amazing, I laughed out loud at the roots scene!


For the most part, I did enjoy Prometheus for entertainment...but I have a few issues with it.


I'm not an expert on Ridley Scott films and I havent seen his whole filmography but is it typical to feel no connection to ANY of the characters in his films? NOT ONE?! I'm a Fassbender fan but I thought his character, the adventurously named 'David' was awful. I didn't feel bad for him at all but I think I was supposed to? I don't think Scott is very good at character development is he? I guess that's not his thing.

Charlize Theron's character was pointless apart from the part where she banged the pilot? WTF. The main protagonist went through (*sorry spoilers*) the most ghastly scene of disgusting misogyny that I felt was completely unnecessary and purely included as an exploitation/torture piece. She then procedes to be punched in the stomach after the 'operation'?

Sorry if I'm going off on one but for me, the disappointment went far beyond Prometheus not being frightening enough.
