Just got back from the matinee of Prometheus. Ignore the negative reviews. It is a well-done, well thought out movie. It is not an actual prequel to Alien, but does touch base with the Alien Universe.
It was well acted and Noomi Rapace does a good job as the lead actress. Charlize Theron took a small role but fills it out well. Although old SF geezers will see a lot of the happenings coming, it's still fun watching them unfold.
While I was out, I picked up the John Carter dvd so I can watch it again tonight.
