Star Trek Into Darkness
A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III
Gareth J. Von Kallenbach
Let me know when they find the right story for the first movie.

ZING! Seriously though, why do these writers defend the first movie saying "all will be revealed" when the mundane questions they state there set up is apart of a story that isn't even finished? Do they all say "will make it up as we go a long" or what?

They lied to us then had the audacity to give the movie the tagline, "questions will be answered." Aside from the visuals, Prometheus is a shitty movie. Will I see the sequel? yes. rant over.

More black goo, please.

The real question is would it answer questions the first film left unanswered, or is just going to be a strictly by the book sequel!

What would a "by the book sequel" to Prometheus be? Landing on yet another planet with ominous gloomy ruins? Lots of slimy CGI monsters? More Engineers going all Frankenstein rage on our characters? Noomi remembering that sideways roll trick to avoid being crushed by a 1,000,000 ton boomerang?
But seriously, I think there is plenty of room to make an interesting sequel because her character and David's head can go anywhere now and have any kind of adventure. We'll see if that's what happens.

Perhaps the article got it wrong that it's going to be a prequel instead!

I thought they already knew the basic story that would encompass the sequel? This is disappointing, as it pretty much confirms they had no idea where they were going or what they were really doing in the first Prometheus, and I am one of the people who was not outrageously disappointed with it.

Could they lose the plotholes, stupid character interactions that made no sense, and just make it suck a whole lot less than the first film?

I very much enjoyed Prometheus.
Ok, I am ready... flog away.

Don't Tase Me Bro
If it was really as bad as the internet bandwagon told us I have complete faith that it would've not only been nominated in every category, but it would've swept the Razzies last week.
Nary a nomination...and this was a high-profile film too. Hyperbole is a helluva drug.
No; it wasn't that bad. It was a bit too esoteric for its own good, but hardly the pile of excrement that the haters have dubbed it with.
Save that vitriol for BAYFormers, anything Bieber or 1Direction (inevitably) will star in, or the next G.I. Joe film...
But not for Sir Ridley.

Prometheus is a bad movie because they tried to throw as much as they could on screen and hoped that some of it would stick. It's an example of a movie that went forward before a decent script had been figured out. People hate on it because they expect Ridley Scott to have a decent script figured out before he shoots.
Is it garbage, like Twilight? Of course not. It's just an infuriating movie because it tries way too hard.

Alright. I will agree that they threw a bunch of stuff in there...but I wasn't bothered by that because everything I had read told me to expect Ridley to take the ALIEN mythos in new directions. Add in the fact that as Head Writer of LOST, Lindelof took that show in a million new directions, some of them satisfactory, others ridiculous.
With Lindelof writing, I knew what to expect. Anyone who is familiar with Lindelof should not have been surprised with the directions PROMETHEUS took...
...and most of those directions were refreshingly new to the genre. Come on, it's not like we're talking about PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE.
