Loved Roonbeth Marlander in this. Her performance was the best thing about this film. Everything else was typical post-90s Fincher — expertly shot and staged, but pretty boring to sit through, and given over to way too much Fincher worship by the media and fanbase. Soundtrack was good though. I basically thought the story itself was weak, so, I guess I can cross off the novel as something I want to read.
The ending was preposterous. And that’s saying something for a story full of preposterousessness.

The guy who brought us Resident Evil, among other abortions, delivered this shockingly competent action comedy adventure. The costumes?? Better than they have any reason to be in a B+ movie. The cast? Underused, but shockingly appropriate and fun. I mean, look at that lineup: how’d they manage to con Mads into this madness? Macfadyen? Yeah, okay he’s not exactly an action star - I mean, look at that sword fighting, it was pretty bad - but Darcy! I hope Luke Evans sneaks up more in future films (Immortals lolz) and Ray Stevenson needs to get back with Kevin McKidd forever; Milla is too pretty to be real; you know Christoph is just slumming it until his next major role and I still feel he could’ve Christoph’d this film SO MUCH MORE had he been given better direction.
Look, I know its supposed to be d’Artagnan’s story, but I came to watch the Musketeers. Where were the Musketeers! They were sidelined in their own movie. Ugh. Save for a pretty hilarious CGI’d shadowing effect at the Versailles scene with the airship, I thought this film actually looked the part of a Bruckheimer-funded AAA blockbuster. Except, you know, lacking more A-list talent and having some action sequences that would make Johnny Depp blush.
Highly recommended Surprisingly entertaining is what it is.

…And remember that one time when Toby Stephens played a North Korean Bond villain who underwent gene therapy so that he could play whiteface with a smirk and jawline that was imminently punchable?

GAHHHHH. Watch this viral clip specially created for Prometheus. It features Guy Pearce as a megalomaniac industrialist (not a big surprise who he is but I’ve removed the spoiler!) giving a keynote at a futuristic and totally-not-dystopic TED conference about mankind’s manifest destiny, evolution, doing science, etc. It’s the near/far-future prescience and seminal design aesthetic that Sir Ridley once possessed a genius for. I really want this film to be great!!

Warrior vs The Fighter. Discuss!

Which one is your favorite right-leaning, Jameson-drinking, blue-collar, David meets inner Goliath struggle, post-Friday Night Lights tear-jerker? For my money, it’d have to go to Tom Hardy’s scowl and Nick Nolte’s growl. But then there’s Christian Bale’s bald spot. And Amy Adams’ ass. But then The National brought their brand of melodic guitar pop to the former film, while the latter is responsible for making possible “Starring Academy Award winner(s)…” to The Dark Knight Rises' impending marketing ads. Jeez, you guys.

OK, here’s where I stand. I’m going to come out and call Prometheus the second-best film of 2012 (after TDKR obviously).   There’s going to be some serious CGI eviscerations, slightly   embarassing Ridley Scott retreads, and too much Fassbender to contain on   IMAX. Oh, man. The Fassbender factor in this is nigh-impossible   (Charlize and Noomi are welcome bonuses). My alternate titles/ideas for   this film goes something like this:
The Fassbender Centipede  —  because, hello?!?! I wish the Fassbender was a facehugger shaped like his perfectly sculpted ass, one imagines.Alien5  —  the 5 is supposed to be an  “S”  hence recalling the legendary film and  also hinting at the   chronological order of this film but it is a prequel of sorts so thats a   bit problematic
Space Jockeys in Space  —  “In space, no one can hear you jam.” It’s Space Jockeys, spinning crazy tunes in space! Totally not for kids.
Untitled Blade Runner Sequel  —  Fake IMDB  has  this listed as in-production and will star Michael Fassbender as a  new  employee at newly merged Tyrell-Yutani’s research corp. He is a   replicant and he and his team will journey across the stars in search of   our beginnings (but what they find may be our end!!!!!!!)
