Film Review: Prometheus

Starring: Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace
Directed by: Ridley Scott

So last night, I finally got around to checking out, “Prometheus” in theater. I actually went with 4 other people instead of going to the movies alone this time.

Here is my review:

Plot/synopsis: A team of scientists journey through the universe on the spaceship “Prometheus” on a voyage to investigate Alien life forms. The team of scientists becomes stranded on an Alien world, and as they struggle to survive it becomes clear that the horrors they experience are not just a threat to themselves, but to all of mankind.

If you’re planning to see this film and expecting this film that will have something to do with the earlier, “Alien” films, then you’ll be pretty disappointed. In early 2000, Ridley Scott originally planned this movie to be a “prequel”, of the first “Alien” movie, but due to the “Alien Vs. Predator” movie just started development, Ridley had to scrap the project. Later on in the years, Ridley picked up interest in this so called, Alien “Prequel”, and decided to make it a totally different film. That’s when Ridley decided to hire Damon Lindelof, to re-write the script.

I saw the film last night, and immediately noticed, the whole movie had nothing to do with the Alien franchise. Yes, “Prometheus” does, have aliens in the film, of course, but they are different forms of aliens. You will not see any of the original aliens from the Sigourney Weaver films. They call the film, “Prometheus”, for a reason. If the film was about the other Alien movies, then the title would have had, “Alien” in it.

This film is getting mixed reviews from critics and movie fans. Some say the script was badly written, but I didn’t think so. I thought the writing was perfect. It was intelligent and insightful. I can understand that “Science Fiction” can sometimes confuse people. I would also say that this film was true science fiction. Watching this film made me think of science fiction writers, Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Orson Scott Card, and others. While, this film is science fiction, there is also some reality to this film as well.

The film wants to question us of why us humans were made. Why are we living here on this Earth? Where did we come from originally? That’s the main focus of the film. The film is about archaeologist, Elizabeth Shaw, trying to save humans from going extinct. Where did the word, “Prometheus” originally come from? It was a Greek mythology story, probably where, Ridley inspired the film from. It’s not just science fiction, the film will give you a bit of a history lesson as well.

Of course, I was very impressed with the visuals and special effects of the movie. I’m usually not that impressed with visuals and special effects of movies, ’cause most of that stuff looks cartoonish and silly to me. The visual and special effects in “Prometheus”, just blew me away. I liked the casting of the film. I thought, Charlize Theron and Noomi Rapace, did a great job, but I was most impressed with Michael Fassbender, who played David the Android. That was some brilliant acting by Fassbender, and I think he should get an Oscar nomination for that role.

The entire movie was entertaining. I wasn’t bored, the story kept you hooked all the way through. Yes, there are action scenes. You will also see some scary scenes and get a few jumpy scenes. You will also get some gross out scenes just like the earlier Alien films. I was very impressed with, “Prometheus”, and so far, it’s the best film of 2012, other than, “The Avengers”. It really is nice to see people interested in science fiction again. I’m hoping “Prometheus” will help give the science fiction genre a huge comeback in Hollywood. I think Ridley Scott can help bring science fiction back in a huge way as he has plans of making a sequel to, “Blade Runner”, as well. “Prometheus” was a phenomenal film, I loved it, and the film works.

Score for “Prometheus” = (**** = 4 stars as in Excellent)


Cool Photos: Noomi Rapace catches everyones attention in NYC wearing a red dress…

You ever had one of those days, where a beautiful woman walks by and everyone can’t keep their eyes off her? Well, NYC in Manhatten just experienced that. Noomi Rapace, made an appearance in NYC, to appear on the David Letterman show to promote, “Prometheus”. She wore a red dress that caught the eye of onlookers and she even stopped traffic.

See the pics, here.

The comments in that article are trash talking her, but I think she’s a gorgeous woman no matter what she wears.


Cool Video: Ridley Scott’s “Prometheus” trailer is online, and the film looks friggin’ SWEET!!!

Ridley Scott’s new sci fi horror film titled, “Prometheus”, which stars Charlize Theron and Noomi Rapace, the teaser trailer, hits online today. The film looks awesome. While I’m a huge fan of Ridley Scott movies, I think he’s best at sci fi films, and so happy he’s finally back at that genre after all these years.

See the trailer at, AICN.


Cool Photo: Ridley Scott’s “Promestheus” poster released…

The teaser poster for Ridley Scott’s directed, “Prometheus”, sci-fi/horror film have been released yesterday. It looks pretty cool. Not sure if this is supposed to be a prequel to his Alien film or not, but we’ll have to see the film for ourselves, I guess. Looking forward to it. I’m a huge fan of Ridley Scott movies.


“The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” Swedish film was total garbage, but I loved Noomi Rapace as Lisbeth Salander!!!

Last night, I watched the Swedish film, “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” on Netflix. Honestly, I thought the film was a piece of shit. It left so much out of the story and changed the story around a bit. It was different from the book. Plus, the movie was kind of boring itself. The only thing I loved about it was that I think that Noomi Rapace made a perfect Lisbeth Salander, she was quite amazing in that role though. That’s the only thing I liked about it. Sad they had to ruin the movie.

In my opinion, I think Noomi Rapace should be playing the Lisbeth character again for David Fincher’s American version of “Dragon Tattoo”. Rooney Mara doesn’t really fit as the character, in my opinion, I liked Noomi more.

I hope David Fincher’s version will stay true to the book and not leave too much out. Only thing changing from the book is the ending. I don’t mind if the ending gets changed, as long as the rest of the story is the same as the book. I think David Fincher’s version might be a better film, hopefully.


BREAKING NEWS: Ridley Scott’s new “Alien” project finally revealed, it’s no prequel or a sequel but…

…it’s simply a standalone film. The name of the film is “Prometheus”, and this will be Ridley Scott’s first science fiction film since, “Blade Runner” starring Harrison Ford. In, “Prometheus”, Swedish actress Noomi Rapace is attached to star, Angelina Jolie and Charlize Theron are in negotiations to play the leads as well. It’s an original story taken place in the same universe where the first “Alien” movie is in. Ridley hints that the film will be about the Alien’s DNA. Look like they are keeping the plot under wraps for now. Will we get a Sigourney Weaver cameo appearance?

See the report at, Deadline.


First look at Rooney Mara for “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” film…

Images of Rooney Mara, in the leading role for “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” film by David Fincher, have been leaked to the web by W Magazine.

I’ve never read the Millennium Trilogy books by Steig Larsson, but I’m interested in reading them. Next time I go to “Barnes & Noble”, I’ll start buying these books. Keep in mind there is another version of this film, a Swedish version that stars Noomi Rapace. I haven’t seen that version either but plan to.
