Prometheus(2012)

Ridley Scott's return to the "Alien" universe, and, oh God, does it suck! I don't understand why people liked this movie so much. Were they just hoping and wanting to like it so much that they blinded themselves to what they were actually seeing? The plot makes no sense, the characters are the dumbest I've ever seen on screen, and the science and technical aspects make it feel like it was written by a Texas home-schooled kindergartner (if you're doing science fiction, you better get the science right). Okay, maybe that last bit is a little mean, but it's still pretty bad. I don't think I've ever rooted for characters dying so much in a movie. It has a few nice visuals. A few. That's it. That's all it has going for it.
