to think Prometheus was a rubbish film?

The first tiny bit where the Earth is seeded with DNA was the best bit, and perhaps, the last few seconds, where the Alien of good films is born, was OK. Everything in between was crap.

So glad I only paid a couple of quid to borrow the DVD, instead of paying through the nose for the cinema as dh and I had intended to do.

Ridley Scot, you should be ashamed. ASHAMED. I am very cross with you, and I shall think twice before I bother with another film from you.

Yep, it was crap. A few special effects, a bit of drama and then a big crash at the end. I thought Prometheus was going to be some big plot. Turns out it was the name of the ship. Which crashed. confused

It was poop!

YANBU. I slept through 99% of it, it was awful.

leonardofquirm Thu 21-Feb-13 23:32:52

I slept though a lot too. It was disappointing.

AnyFucker Thu 21-Feb-13 23:34:32

yep, crap

the hype was most unfulfilling

It looked good and that's as far as the positives go. I don't understand how anyone could rave about it.

yabu, it was great!

Freaked me out. That big blue humanoid. He wasn't very nice was he!! I couldn't sleep for fear of him hiding under my bed.

It made no sense at all. A group of horrible people went to a planet. Why did they all hate each other? Why did she hate her father? Why did the robot want everyone else to die?

and breathe god I hated that film

It was a steaming bag of shite. Within the first 10 mins, I guessed the plot and who would die when and how and I was 90% right.


Also, can we talk about having a c-section without anaesthetic and then promptly doing all sorts of terrifying hardcore heroics? Erm, right...

(Also, the machine cut the baby alien's umbilical cord, which means there must've been a placenta, but no placenta was removed. Not that leaving it in could kill her or anything, fuxache.)

OxfordBags, there were so many ridiculous things like that that it's impossible to list them.

I was annoyed within 15 minutes, and then just waiting for it to end, hoping that it wasn't going to be as bad as it seemed, that there would turn out to have a redeeming feature. Alas!

Does no one in the film industry read books? They could try Asher, Hamilton, Banks, oh, there's loads of them.

Were the unknown actors deliberate, or was it that no good ones would touch it? grin

I went to see it. In 3D sad first 3D movie I'd ever been to see aswell.

The glasses hurt my nose so I took them off and got a headache because without them the film was slightly out of focus.

I had huge expectations but I was disappointed. The highlight of that trip was pic n mix angry

Commiserations to you, Naysa.

I am a huge, HUGE Alien/Aliens fan, and was sooo excited about this film. It came out the week I had DD, so didn't get to see it. Got the DVD for Christmas after dropping massive hints, settled down with wine, 3D glasses, everything, and was so pissed off! How, how, did Ridley Scott manage to fuck this up so badly? It's so boring, and nothing makes sense! Can't blame Michael Fassbender though, he is amazing and wonderful and will excuse him being involved in this massive piece of poo. Heard there's going to be a sequel...

YANBU I thought it was utter, mindless PANTS.

SamuelWestsMistress Fri 22-Feb-13 05:21:59

I thought it was ace! DH would agree with the rest of you though.

Tee2072 Fri 22-Feb-13 05:29:40

My first words upon its completion were "I want my 2 hours back."

Total and other crap.

Fairylea Fri 22-Feb-13 05:37:06

I enjoyed it !

PessaryPam Fri 22-Feb-13 06:02:21

It was totally confusing crap.

chutneypig Fri 22-Feb-13 06:36:43

I wasn't impressed at all. Triumph of style over substance.

Stinkyminkymoo Fri 22-Feb-13 07:37:59

YANBU. it was utter, utter shite. I do not get why people rave about it.

Cloud Atlas is another. I could not understand it and I fell asleep 1/2 way through, total waste of money!

oxford that's exactly what I thought!! No way would she be able to run round with a staples stomach the shock of the op alone would have killed her.

And then there was the fact they forgot about all the other people. What happened to them?.....

Eebahgum Fri 22-Feb-13 07:49:41

I thought it was pants. Dp however liked it so much at the cinema he has since treated himself to the DVD.

I thought it was brilliant! I didn't think the beginning was about planting dna on earth. I thought it was about destroying the planet that the explorers went to visit.
