Movie Tally 2012: Prometheus (2012)

Movie Tally 2012Prometheus (2012)

Directed by Ridley Scott

How can one of the most beautiful films ever made also have one of the worst science fiction scripts I’ve ever seen?  It isn’t just that they don’t answer all the questions, it’s that they dangle them in front of the audience faking importance only to then say “well it’s up to you.”  The story on it’s own is fine but feels shoehorned into the Alien mythology so much that it made me no longer give a shit about anything that happened leading to the events of Alien.  Claim smarts all you want, but the characters in the film are clearly the dumbest people who could have ever been sent to meet our makers. Nonsensical plot choices along with completely unclear character motivations destroy an otherwise intriguing and cool concept.  But don’t worry, tune in 2014 for the finale where we promise all your questions will be answered! Really!
