nice scenery, not much else to it!
I went in not expecting very much from Prometheus and unfortunately I got exactly what I expected, a well acted and well shot film that was unable to stick to it's convictions, as other reviews have suggested the film continually looks one way then changes direction and at no great pace or towards any real end game, things are just left behind or ignored. I found the narrative to be very loose and mainly driven by stupid choices and thoughtless jump-the-gun behaviour seemingly in order to get to the grizzly "fight" scenes and to show off some more special effects, thus I found it difficult to sympathise with any of the leads at any point with the exception of Idris Elba's character. Overall not particularly interesting and certainly didn't leave me desiring another film in the already over populated franchise.
Project X (2012)
A shallow and empty piece of garbage
The film offers no redeeming features whatsoever, it is listed as a comedy yet isn't funny, it contains every typical "spot" seen in just about every film of this type without ever being blow away or genuinely interesting. The main characters are all entirely devoid of any moral fibre and are glamorised to an outrageous level at the end of the film. By way of comparison, in The Hangover the characters are deeper (Not much, but deeper none the less) and hence there is a reason to be interested or invested, here however the three leads are painted as nothing but vacuous idiotic fools with no remorse hence it is impossible for the audience to empathise with them or be amused by their supposedly hilarious antics. Entirely flat all the way through, it would appear the makers decided gratuitous nudity and the continual shouting of inane nonsense make up for an interesting story and developed characters (Which apparently it does in the grand scheme of things since it's made close to $100million at the box office) An entirely disappointing and uninteresting waste of time and it concerns me how little thought seems to have gone into it all, perhaps no thought went into it at all, perhaps it being a fiction film is all a hoax. Maybe these people did do this and did film the results and then released their footage internationally making millions in the process and there was never any "director" or "actors" or "producers" just some guys being idiots. At least if that idea were true it would make me feel more at ease with the idea of this film and the film industry in general, sadly it's not, so instead I despair and simply say "don't watch it, it's not very good"
