Prometheus by Ridley Scott [2012]



I don’t particularly like Ridley Scott – Blade Runner is the exception. Nevertheless I gave it a shot, not knowing a thing about the movie apart from the fact it was about aliens. Again…

Unfortunately I just saw it was written by Damon Lindelof* after the movie was over and that explains a lot. Mr. Lindelof, you see, writes scripts like a bipolar chicken. Mediocre, confused, incoherent little plots that lack any attention to detail.

Yeah, that’s my review of this movie: Mediocre, confused, incoherent little plot that lack any attention to detail. Purty graphics, though.

74% on Rotten Tomatoes. I give it a 10%.

* One of the two writers responsible for the “Lost” series fiasco.
