What's up with all the negative reviews?
First thing I should clear to you is that I have watched all Alien movies including the unfortunate ones(AvP), so I am pretty familiar with the Alien universe. Now, I have been waiting for this movie for so long because it could solve the mystery surrounding the "Space Jockey". Now, that it got released in some countries before, I saw all the negative reviews about this movie. All the people saying that it's not that great as 'Alien' was.
The Movie - It was really good. This movie is actually NOT a direct 'Alien' prequel since it would have been about the another 'Fight the Xenomorph' movie but it is actually about the "Space Jockeys". So yeah, you can say it is a 'Space Jockey movie' which are named as "Engineers" or "Creators" of the mankind in this film. Now, is this movie as awesome and chilling as the original? NO. Is it as great and classic as the original? NO. Is it worth the money? YES!
The Movie is beautifully shot by Ridley Scott and the acting is quite good too. What I hated about the movie is that the crew on the Nostromo was really professional while the crew on Prometheus is just amateur. I can say that each and every accident that happened in the film could have been avoided if the characters weren't such amateur in doing their jobs. No spoilers here but there is a scene where they spot a snake like creature. Now instead of running away or at least avoiding it, they try to pet the creature. WHAT?!. You are trying to pet a Cute-looking creature which you don't have any idea about and you call yourself professional? This Scene is quite similar to the Scene in Jurassic Park where this cute dinosaur comes to the guy, shows it's real form and finally kills him.
If you haven't watched this movie, go and watch it. Don't try to compare it to 'Alien' because Ridley Scott didn't made this movie to be like it and he cleared most of these questions in various interviews. Take this as a standalone film and some of the questions asked by Elizabeth will be hopefully answered in the sequel to this movie.
Good Job, Scott.
PS: By the way, I forgot to add that Peter Weyland's makeup was one of the worst makeup I ever saw. Also, there is a surprise for the 'Alien' fans at the very end of the film.
RA. One - Human Cruelty
So it was Saturday and I went with my Sallu and SRK friends to watch RA. One. I really didn't had any expectations from this movie. But as soon as the movie starts, it falls in a different Universe, a different dimension altogether. Bad acting, bad screenplay, bad story and it takes 'Rip-off' to whole another level. I saw Iron-Man, Terminator 2, Tron Legacy, bicentennial man and Robot all in once(parodied). I gave this movie 3 stars because I enjoyed "Chamakchallo". My 'SRK fan gang' enjoyed it to the fullest. They were happy to see their favorite actor in cool Super-Hero Costume. If you like Lifeless Robot(G.One) dancing, you have to go and watch the movie. If not, don't expect it to be a fun-filled-roller-coaster-action-ride because it's not. The CGI is no doubt slick but still not on par with that of Hollywood Movies.
