Saw Ridley Scott's Prometheus today. There's very little I can say about it without giving away spoilers. I will say that if you liked the original 1979 Alien, you'll probably like this as well. I don't understand why the studio went to such lengths to say this wasn't an Alien prequel when nerds could clearly see from the trailers that it was. If that weren't enough, the last scene of the film leaves no doubt whatsoever. The way the film ended leaves enough unanswered questions for a sequel, which I fully expect if enough people see this outing to make the numbers right. This film is expensive, and looks it. IMO it's a supremely well crafted SF/Horror excercise. The dialogue seems completely natural in the mouths of the actors; the complete opposite of the Star Wars prequels and their taboo against contractions. It's not for everyone, and it requires a fair amount of concentration on the part of the viewer so I do NOT expect it to be a Summer blockbuster on the level of The Avengers, which I also enjoyed, but stimulated an entirely different area of my brain. It'll make money, but it won't bust any blocks. Also, the whole time I was watching this I was thinking: whoever models this spaceship for Orbiter will have his work cut out for him.
One last thing: DO NOT BRING A PREGNANT WOMAN TO THIS MOVIE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE.
