Ripley: Ash, that transmission... Mother's deciphered part of it. It doesn't look like an S.O.S.
Ash: What is it, then?
Ripley: Well, I... it looks like a warning. I'm gonna go out after them.
Ash: What's the point? I mean by the, the time it takes to get there, you'll... they'll know if it's a warning or not, yes?
I just got home from watching Prometheus at the cinema. It would seem that the trailers and such that I saw, which I thought were a signal telling me to go see the film were actually a warning. Or should have been. I'm sure I'll be ranting all week about this on here, but here's the short version: IT WAS ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE.
It might just have been the worst film I've ever seen. I'll develop this in more depth. It was so bad in all ways that my brain will be "collating" for a few days before I can enunciate it. I mean, even the score was bad. Just ... everything was bad, except maybe the special effects. And I didn't even go in with high expectations (see earlier posts on Prometheus on this blog). Wow ... just, wow.
So please accept this post as your warning. Especially if you were a fan of Ridley Scott's original 1979 foray into this world, or just a science fiction fan in general ... be warned!
