Today I saw Prometheus. I usually don't go to see movies because I'm mostly disappointed. Today was no different. The movie WAS visually stunning, especially in 3D. This scene:
looked stunning. The whole approach to 3D in this film was very well done. It was used to create space and environments with very little of the "things flying at you" elements.
The story was pretty dire however. The characters weren't engaging, the plot was derivative and predictable, and the ending was just silly.
Worst of all, it cost me £9.60. £9.60?! Ouch. It was £6.60 for the early showing, plus £2 for 3D and £1 for the glasses which I could keep. When I rate movies I don't give them stars, I say how much I would have been happy spending to see it. This was a £5 movie, no more.
