I think the sentiment among many of us who didn't like it (or merely found it disappointing :)) is that the obvious talents of those top-flight masters were wasted by a letdown of a plot and...

Yeah well if insanity and foolishness are related, then surely our insistence on repeating the same arguments with the same people is good evidence! :D

I can't tell if Emaych is serious or if he's doing some sort of elaborate forum-based performance art. Either way it's hilarious and a welcome addition to our Prometheus discussions.

I just watched the original last night, with a teenage cousin who'd never seen it (sent him to get a drink during the R rated scene :eek:). I impressed upon him that the movie was made 30 years ago,...

Agreed, this is my go-to source for reviews/opinions. RT is a good quick screening but that's it.
