It will take you back to rainy Saturday afternoons at the movies. You didn't understand what was happening on screen, but didn't care because the movie filled you with wonder.
Sometimes that's good enough.
Producer/director Ridley Scott's latest mega-movie is not really incoherent, it just has giant holes. If it were a piece of Swiss cheese, you could die of hunger.
But it isn't.
It's a sci fi horror thriller with time and space travel, obligatory aliens and a little Chopin thrown in to up the wonder quotient.
And the Movie Slut shouts, "Yes, yes, yes."
As you can see from the photo, the special effects are stupendous.
Prometheus is a prequel to Scott's 1979 film, Alien, which already has more than its fair share of sequels— '86, '92, '97,'04. '07. Now, this flick is destined for sequel land. Or will the next movie be a pre-sequel?
For better or worse, the Alien franchise zooms on.
