OvomorphMember0 XPMay-31-2012 9:56 AMWhy oh why are SOME of you people negative about the film after SOME reviews. Before some other BRIT jumps on my hobby horse, let me summarize with FACTS: Rated 4/5 by TOTAL FILM, The Telegraph, The SUN, Huffington Post, The Scotsman & the London Standard - all major newspapers here in blighty. Some may say that, "The Sun is trash..." or "That reviewer is a tossbag..." The FACT is these are major Newspapers & magazines giving this film 4/5. Rated 3/5 was EMPIRE, The Guardian Thank F**K there is no-one giving it a 1/5 or a 2/5... Most negative reviews contain the comment (Esp The Metro), that the actual ALIEN is not in this - well that is just lazy Journalism. RS clearly has staed this is not a Xeno movie. Also, 85% (still high) after 30 hrs on Rotten-Tomatoes... I cannot wait til TUES... All I can say to those in America is that these reviews would feel me with confidence that the film is not a big pile of ****e. I will not judge it til I see it BUT total film & some major papers love it... x

OvomorphMember0 XPMay-31-2012 10:08 AM@RH But the Empire reviewer totally trashed the movie and submitted it as "rotten" to Most reviewers are giving away one or two stars, those scores do not reflect the contents of their reviews. And judging by the mixed reviews from IMDB users, chances that the movie will enter the Top 250 are slim.


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-31-2012 10:23 AM@RH, thanks for this positive thread... I can't wait to see Prometheus in the states come June 7th at midnight. There are too many people on this site embracing a pessimistic state of mind, just my opinion.

OvomorphMember0 XPMay-31-2012 10:26 AM@Rh - Unfortunately "Den of Geek" one of the biggest movie sites in the UK gave it 2 stars - Check out the review its bad, real real bad...


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-31-2012 10:30 AM@freeze him - agreed - I say watch the film and stay off here for a week - then make up your mind. I tend to look at the big magazines and papers - which is more reliable than some ignorant fool who is waiting for a facehugger & Xeno to appear... Only Empire seems to disappoint... In the end - it is just opinion - My GF hates the road - I think it's a beautiful film... Just opinions... "Opinions are like *******s... Everyone's got one..." Dirty Harry If I think it sucks, then I will say so...


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-31-2012 10:34 AM"Den of geek" ? WtF? lol. Never heard of it... Just read it though... Doesn't like DL does he... I'd rather take note of Den of Geek but then also; Total film, Evening standard, Telegraph, the Scotsman - all 4/5...


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-31-2012 10:34 AMI don't want to be a defender of Prometheus before I see it, I find it frankly stupid, but can't help thinking that DOG gave 4 stars to Conan the Barbarian, last year. Again, reviews/critics are the most unsalted thing on Earth, they have to be taken with loads of salt!
Ridley Scott will eventually tell us how the Queen was born. Right now we have the Deacon; coming soon the Mercury, the May and the Taylor.


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-31-2012 10:44 AMI can understand that some people are disappointed because of the high expectations, i'm one of them. The story isn't what some people had in there minds. It isn't a bad movie, absolutely not ! But its not the movie who would knock you down. I think about a week, perhaps after a second view, i won't be disappointed anymore...i hope...


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-31-2012 11:51 AMIs it possible that -from the very beginning of this site- we members have blown our expectations so way out of proportion that NO film could live up to? Did we really expect everything to be answered in this film? And, is it possible that RS will "correct" whatever we "purists" don't like for the next film?


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-31-2012 11:56 AMHey, Rolling Stone magazine trashed Led Zeppelin when they were first reviewed, so, critics can me morons like anyone else.


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-31-2012 12:18 PMOr we are just...morons?


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-31-2012 12:41 PM@Sundar... you're only a moron if you let someone else influence your own opinion, or you accept other opinions as your own without thinking for yourself.


PraetorianAdmin4331 XPMay-31-2012 12:49 PMI think it's just a matter of some people not getting what they expected. i.e Some kind of groundbreaking masterpeice when it's in reality just a very cool sci-fi movie.


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-31-2012 1:04 PMThere's a spoiler right there in your original post about the xeno/Metro's review Nice one.


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-31-2012 1:29 PMWho gives a **** what the reviews say, a bunch o' ****n dorks walking away from the movie with their tails tucked between their legs. I dont know the people who write these reviews and i dont even trust people that live in my neighborhood so these little bad reviews arent gonna get me down. Prometheus is gonna be the ****!!!! m/


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-31-2012 1:50 PM@ Otto, I believe you may have misconstrued my remark but that is forgivable in this medium. I remember you had once chastised me for degrading Matchstick Men ! Here are a few more G.I. Jane, White Squall, A Good Year, legend, Black Rain and Robin Hood.


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-31-2012 3:10 PMSome people need to lighten up. The majority of people on this site have not watched the movie, including myself. A bad critique from a critic or a friend does not mean that the movie is not good. That is there opinion. You will come to your personal opinion on seeing the film. That is the only opinion that matters, your own.


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-31-2012 10:17 PMAvatar was trashed but it was an enjoyable film.

OvomorphMember11 XPJun-01-2012 8:52 AMJust out of curiousity - why are people who [i]don't[/i] like a movie morons, but the people who [i]do[/i]] like it arent? Or are there different classes of moron? :P


OvomorphMember0 XPJun-01-2012 9:05 AMOké guys, after a very good night's sleep, thinking about 'Prometheus' i've seen yesterday , i've to admit that the movie is an extraordinary, fantastic and stunning movie, and i want to see it again as soon as possible to get some more answers i'm not that disappointed any more...but enthusisatic!!!


OvomorphMember0 XPJun-01-2012 9:10 AM@John D. That depends on [i]why[/i] they didn't like it. If they're pissed because no xenos show up....or that the juggernaut in this movie doesn't end up as the derelict in "Alien".......they either haven't been paying attention, or........


OvomorphMember0 XPJun-01-2012 2:32 PMOK. Me and my friends already watch the movie. We were seven people and only one said that he liked it. Two of us hardcore fans-we didn`t like it Two like Alien-didn`t like it. Two without opinion-didn`t like it One who watched Alien, Aliens and Alien3 right before the premier of Prometheus.-He liked the movie and he said that it was better than Alien and the rest of the franchise. So i don`t need more to say. You can call me troll or anything else. When you see the movie you will understand and if not sorry guys but something is wrong with you. And ones again you will prove the theory that americans like to watch ****ty movies and all the rest of world learned to do it because of you. But i thought that people in this forum are different kind. Are you?


OvomorphMember0 XPJun-01-2012 2:34 PM11 ttl posts & that last one is something else. LMFAO


OvomorphMember0 XPJun-01-2012 3:43 PMit`s not a secret that hollywood possess more than 90% of movie market worldwide. And i don`t find it so funny.There is logic to be like that, but unfotunately in the last few years Hollywood has become more money machine than ever and less a place for art. And we are all guilty because we watch everything that they bring to us (i must admit not only americans). And my english isn`t good but excuse me it`s not my mother language.


OvomorphMember0 XPJun-02-2012 8:21 AMI've seen Prometheus this morning for the second time, so i could focus better on some things, the movie really got me now!!!


OvomorphMember0 XPJun-02-2012 8:40 AMfor me Prometheus was a let down. and i had done very well in avoiding trailers and tv spots. only saw the 2 trailers. even then it feels like they have shown a lot of the film. so many unexplained scenes. lazy script. theres a moment, after a big scene, that left me not listening cos i was too busy questioning why? but aren't you gonna say anything? surely you'd say something? this does't make sense. what? wait? why is that happening now, doesn't anybody care? well that was random. Story and script wise, its lacking. sometimes very clunky. it is the same as AVP!! Execution of the Visuals and soundtrack is 5/5 Editing feels rushed. during ''action scenes'' blink and its over. though the ship crashing was pretty great, but on the whole i feel deflated.
