See I feel like sci fi completely lacks grit nowadays. With all of this digital filmmaking bullshite, everything is so neat and sterile and thus BORING
I hate Prometheus because I love the originals so much (mostly the first 3). Scott shite on those. Maybe not like Lucas did on Indiana, but enough for Prometheus itself to be a giant turd.
He really needed to decide whether to:
1. Make an Alien prequel
2. Make a new film
He did both and neither and that really affected the output. And you can tell.
It was cleaner but the things still had grit. Plus they shot on real sets with real things. it was still great. maybe an small instance of fakey fake riding to the chambers. I'm color blind so I'm not going to try and talk about color palettes. My 2 1/2 yo nephew is better with colors
Yeah, big time. I have an app on my phone that supposedly makes it so I can see colors the way eveyone else does. I will say that Prometheus is visually stunning and that's a huge plus but not in the way it sounds. The frame isn't cluttered up with cgi shite. I just appreciate old fashioned production values like sets and costumes. I know that sounds stupid but it's completely missing from the genre today as with action movies. Bigger is not better, Hollywood.
While I love the Hobbit, I think a lot of the soul was missing without real orcs. It just felt plastic.

Well they are women...

The Running Man? Minority Report? The list goes on with films and properties that don't have any of the above.

You arguing just to argue again.
For me, it undermines the entire intention of the genre itself to leave something so open and problematic. There's a difference between openness and a gaping plothole.
