Prometheus



Please God, don't let this movie suck. It's the only non-Batman movie I'm really excited to see.

Ridley Scott is so hit and miss it's hard to tell if it'll be good.



Kind of looks good, though.

It'll be the best film of the decade. Also all of Scotts scifi films are legendary. NOTHING beats Alien and Blade Runner.

Some directors are just better at certain genres than others. That having been said, I think Scott is at his best when he does sci fi, as Alucard pointed out.

But I will also defend Gladiator. One of Scott's best.

It might not be the best sci fi film ever made, but you gotta like that we have a big summer film to get excited about that isn't based off a comic, right? ;)

Yup, good point, sci-fi is his genre, and I'm super happy we have a new and true Alien movie coming out. Can't stand that AVP stuff.

Looking through his filmography, too bad he hasn't gone sci-fi in quite a while. He's only done 3 sci-fi movies out of a total of 30 (Legend, '85).

American Gangster was another good one.

There is nothing we can do that will hurt you more than not watching Blade Runner.

I cannot wait til this one comes out, lets hope its more like past Scott and less like modern.

Most people I know hate Blade Runner. I love it. I don't know what they are expecting to be so disappointed/confused about it.

Maybe it's just the tone? It is kind of slow-paced though, as were many films of that time. I saw it for the first time on Blu-Ray, but I read the Philip K. Dick story years before that.

Black Hawn was really good .. Hannibal not bad .. GI Jane tho ............... everyone is aloud 1 real balls up

but seriously .. if you look at his films, there is clear way more great stuff that shitty stuff .. i really enjoyed Body of Lies and American Gangster

but for me he's a master of sifi even though he's only done two films in the genre .. but what films

I loved Bladerunner. Bladerunner PC game was also awesomes. This does look cool so I'll keep an eye on it. But for now I'm busy resisting walking out and going to see The Avengers, can't think about anything else!
