Watched Prometheus tonight and it definitely falls short. It asks a lot of interesting questions and I really like the core of the story but in the end it’s just unable to answer them properly.
Had Lindelof and Scott explored all this stuff with a little more depth, this would easily be one of the best movies of the year. Instead, we just get a nice action film and a shitload of wasted potential.
But I still enjoyed Prometheus very much and would love to watch it again! It looks great, has some lovely acting (Fassbender is incredible and I really liked Rapace) and examines some fascinating themes. Might warm up to it a little bit more on a second viewing.
Nevertheless, it isn’t nearly as good as it could (and should) have been.
Someone baked cookies for fleet foxes. This was Robin Pecknold’s reaction.
