Brief review: Excellent. Spectacular cinematography, script, music and the directing by Ridley Scott… Bravo.
Tip: Make sure you have, at one point or another in your life, seen one of the Alien movies prior to watching this one. Be it the first 1979 by the same director as Prometheus (Scott) or the awesome sequel (Aliens) by James Cameron (most notable for Titanic and Avatar). Seriously, you will enjoy Prometheus with a backstory from the Alien franchise in your head, especially at the end when you have a eureka moment and say: “Oh, so that’s where it started!”
I just finished watching Hugo, and I can sincerely say it has earned a spot as one of my favorite films of all time. A story filled with enigmatic characters, antique clocks, old books, films, intricate gadgets and gizmos; what’s not to love?
Always been a fan of both starring actors Asa Butterfield (I remember watching his first few films: Son of Rambow and The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas) and Chloë Moretz (who doesn’t love her films and acting? She kicks ass!) I think both complimented each other very well in this movie.
Later I am gonna look up the book the film is based on and have a tremendous read.
Neil deGrasse Tyson, the meme-man himself who once criticized Titanic for portraying the wrong star alignment in the film, is at it again. And he’s right, no surprise.
It is said that the Prometheus traveled 35 light years to LV-223. Since the speed of light per second is 186,282 miles and there’s roughly 31,557,000 seconds in a year, then a light year is about 5.87 trillion miles and thus 35 light years is approximately 205 trillion miles.
Could be Theron was just saying the biggest-sounding number at the top of her head, or she really, really thought they had travelled half a billion miles instead 205 trillion miles. My question is, what speed where they going at to have travelled trillions of miles in just 2 years?
We met it seems, such a short time ago. You looked at me, needing me so. Yet from your sadness, our happiness grew. Then I found out, I needed you, too. I remember how we used to play. I recall those rainy days, the fires glowed, that kept us warm. And now I find, we’re both alone. Goodbye may seem forever, farewell is like the end. But in my heart’s a memory, and there you’ll always be.
