I've been watching It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. This is literally the only show that isn't Trailer Park Boys that has made me scream and cry laughing. I think the only time I've ever gasped for air quite so desperately was when I was 11 and I listened to Robin Williams A Night at The Met with my dad, which is kind of fucked up if you think about it but whatever, comedy. Danny Devito is probably the funniest character to me, but not a single character would work without the whole gang.

i thought Prometheus was a let down. my uncle and i picked the film apart while watching it. we didn't want to but fuck me backwards, it forced us to. not picking it apart would have resulted in loss of brain cells. i can't afford that.

I think when it fell apart to me was the first horror scene. I couldn't get the Benny Hill music out of my head and I just laughed and laughed and kept on laughing.

My dad loves that movie and watches it pretty much every night before sleeping. True story.

I still haven't seen it.

I was the opposite. I vehemently refused to dissect a plot that was clearly going to provide no answers whatsoever.

I liked parts of it. Moments. Over all, I didn't care for it, but there were a few scenes that I enjoyed.

I think the absolute worst part was that action scene two thirds way through where the ship gets invaded and the majority of the cast died.

It just felt so artificial, so 'We need to draw the Alien crowd. Let's do one of these scenes.' From the moment we were introduced to our ragtag bunch of misfits cast I knew where it was going, but still.

I don’t think I’ve ever heard of a horror movie where half the cast doesn’t die.

I didn't go into Prometheus expecting a horror movie, neither did I leave believing I had just seen one.

Like I said, it was forced.

You have to look all the way to wikipedia where it says the blue guy at the start of the film was Jesus Christ. You then stop looking and go cry in a corner.

It's really not like that. Besides, the film itself provides all the answers if you read into it a little. You should watch that video I posted.

I've watched the "explained" video before. It's incredibly half-assed and reaching as fuck. The film is just so incredibly poorly-thought-out.

It's great up until the sex scene, then the whole thing just goes completely to shit right after.

Nonononono... The guy at the start of the film would have been the Holy Father. Jesus would have been a different Engineer, what with him being on planet Earth well after humans first evolved.

Disproved in the commentary on the Blu Ray and in a few interviews with Scott himself. This was a very, very early suggestion for the script that was thrown out but vapid nerds keep expelling anyway. Interview with Scott:
Movies.com: You throw religion and spirituality into the equation for Prometheus, though, and it almost acts as a hand grenade. We had heard it was scripted that the Engineers were targeting our planet for destruction because we had crucified one of their representatives, and that Jesus Christ might have been an alien. Was that ever considered?

RS: We definitely did, and then we thought it was a little too on the nose. But if you look at it as an “our children are misbehaving down there” scenario, there are moments where it looks like we’ve gone out of control, running around with armor and skirts, which of course would be the Roman Empire. And they were given a long run. A thousand years before their disintegration actually started to happen. And you can say, “Lets’ send down one more of our emissaries to see if he can stop it. Guess what? They crucified him.

At no point does the final product of the film Prometheus include a Jesus alien, nor was it intended to. I am glad it wasn't in the final cut but I think it's a cute little idea the way Scott puts it. It was a competent film and all this 'BUT WHERE ARE THE ANSWERS' talk indicates you either didn't bother with a rewatch or just weren't paying attention the first time around. I could give a shit about Ridley Scott's smug fucking ass but seeing nerds hyperventilate about this movie being bad by basically admitting that they don't get it is really fucking tired and boring at this point. It was a well made movie that pulled off a little bit of high-concept sci-fi in an ostensibly Hollywood way. If you can't recognize this boo hoo for you, learn2movies and stop complaining that it didn't make sense.

I watched Titanic for the first time ever. I had a lot of problems with it, the script especially, but it's one of my girlfriends favorite movies and all the little details she kept telling me about the production really made it fun. The ending almost made me tear up. Alllllmost.

I watched World's End. I think Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead and World's End are just The Expendables for smug NEETs/nerds. Hot Fuzz has a passable climax, the rest is complete fucking tripe. Seriously, irredeemable poorly made trash that is viewed by (North American) 'intellectual' subcultures as clever cinema when in reality it's just low budget repackaged hollywood trash. I cannot stress how much I loathe both these and Doctor Who. Total and complete shit.

It just felt so artificial, so 'We need to draw the Alien crowd. Let's do one of these scenes.' From the moment we were introduced to our ragtag bunch of misfits cast I knew where it was going, but still.
You are killing me dude. Killing me.

It's true though, it's extraordinarily half-assed and even comical that they realized they'd basically had nothing really scary and had some big-headed magic teleporting zombie kill half the crew.

Really? I think it was timed fairly well, they built up to it with a very 'shit is hitting the fan' vibe right up until Fiefeld-monster shockingly smashes the guy's head in. It demonstrates just how volatile the goo/products of the goo are in a concise and shocking way, eliminating 3 irrelevant unnamed characters in the process. 'Half the crew' is thoroughly incorrect, and if you found nothing prior to that point even remotely unsettling you're desensitized and not in a position to critique it I guess?

I agree with you about Prometheus. It really irritates me that people don't like it because tey didn't understand it. It's not bad storytelling, it's excellent storytelling.
Hot Fuzz and Shaun are great, and I have no idea why you brought up Doctor Who but at the end of the day, it's your opinion and opinions can be fucking wrong.

Pfft

There was nothing remotely unsettling about a bloaty-headed corpse managing to walk from the alien structure all the way to directly in front of the human advanced starship and assume a stupid sitting pose with nobody at all noticing until it had apparently been sitting there like a retard for some time. Then it gets up and wigs out like an 80s TV-movie psycho.

It was not unsettling.

It was comical.

There was nothing to understand. The Engineers are giant space jerks, the humans were morons, and the movie ends with a bald guy getting raped by a starfish.

I liked David. We can all agree David was good and the best thing about the movie, right?

He might be the best thing about the movie, but he certainly won't be good.

Talking about Prometheus is tricky, cause there are some real moments that make your head scratch even if you pay attention(Run to the left you dumb bitch), but there are also a lot of complaint thrown out at it that can be remedied by simply paying attention. I personally do not think a movie needs to excel in all ways to be a good movie, Prometheus certainly doesn't have the best writing or acting at times, but the visuals knock it out of the part and I will like it forever because of that. Movie are a visual medium, to ignore that entire aspect of a movie is a little silly. Also, part of the reason the script is so convoluted is that the original script was just too much like an Alien movie for RS, so he had Lindelofleolfolfolfo go over it and basically said, "I want it to be like an alien movie but not too much".



Anyways, I just saw the new Breaking Bad, Oymandius. Best hour of television I have seen.

Visuals are the only reason I've watched Wall-E and District 9 as often as I have.

Well okay, that and sound design.
