Looper!

All this year is missing is an Edgar Wright movie.

seriously, I almost had a stroke trying to figure out how the whole plot/conflict in Looper can work. Total paradox mind ****. Should be a great scifi thriller.

I'll start by saying the acting was decent despite the awful dialogue, and the visuals were solid.

The action was stupid and made no sense. There was zero plot, zero character development, and there was no reason for any part of the movie to have happened.

It was a really stupid movie. It was a boring movie. It was mindless mindlessness that didn't even have a lot of gratuitous action to go with the mindlessness.

This is coming from someone who:
-Didn't spend a dime to see the movie
-Doesn't watch trailers
-Has very low expectations going into every movie
-I don't predict "what will happen next" actively

Basically, I try to be the perfect movie watcher for the sake of my own enjoyment.

I wasn't disappointed with Prometheus because I go into every movie thinking it's going to be dog ****, but it would have been nice if it wasn't dog ****.

They spent hundreds of millions of dollars to make you sit through a **** movie so you could get to the horribly unsatisfying and passively predictable (meaning, you know what it'll be even if you're trying to watch the movie as a mindless drone) ending.

When the movie was over my girlfriend and I laughed and talked for a good hour about how terrible it was. We're both movie watchers and almost synchronously whispered at one point in the movie "this movie is sooo bad".

I'm likely to put it in the category with 10,000 BC, Alexander, and Day After Tomorrow as just ******* awful big budget movies.

In Prometheus can anyone explain the part with the Geologist half way through?

Disagree 100%. I thoroughly enjoyed it, even moreso when I was explained some of the symbolism and the plot when I got home. Didn't live up to my high expectations, but I still liked it a lot.

I saw Prometheus yesterday and I think I agree for the most part with what everyone is saying. It was solid, but not great at any one thing - too many issues were either outright ignored or left unanswered for me. I'd give it like a 3/5

That it all has to be explained outside of the movie (and is still not good) instantly makes the movie ****. Sorry, but that's the way it is.

It's a bad movie. It's fine if you liked it...I like some bad movies, too. I respect that even though I understand that I'm probably not coming off as someone who's talking in a respectful tone (hard over the internet)... But it was pretty awful.

I didn't hate the movie, I'm just saying it was a really bad movie as unbiasedly as one can. It was a really expensive B movie.

Fassenbender alone makes Prometheus something to check out, not to mention the rest of the cast is solid too. I think I'll be checking it out this week when the cinema does deals for week days.

It was a really stupid movie. It was a boring movie. It was mindless mindlessness that didn't even have a lot of gratuitous action to go with the mindlessness.

This is coming from someone who:
-Didn't spend a dime to see the movie
-Doesn't watch trailers
-Has very low expectations going into every movie
-I don't predict "what will happen next" actively

Basically, I try to be the perfect movie watcher for the sake of my own enjoyment.

I wasn't disappointed with Prometheus because I go into every movie thinking it's going to be dog ****, but it would have been nice if it wasn't dog ****.

They spent hundreds of millions of dollars to make you sit through a **** movie so you could get to the horribly unsatisfying and passively predictable (meaning, you know what it'll be even if you're trying to watch the movie as a mindless drone) ending.

When the movie was over my girlfriend and I laughed and talked for a good hour about how terrible it was. We're both movie watchers and almost synchronously whispered at one point in the movie "this movie is sooo bad".

I'm likely to put it in the category with 10,000 BC, Alexander, and Day After Tomorrow as just ******* awful big budget movies.
Have you seen Alien? Kind of a must before seeing this one.

Just got back from Prometheus. **** I hate 3D first off. What a waste of my money. I enjoyed the movie. Brilliant acting all around but Elba and Fassbender once again showed they are two of the better actors working these days. I agree with the dialogue being weak and there were parts that dragged and could have had more pop. It did not live up to the hype for me after loving the trailers but I tempered my expectations a bit beforehand which I think helped me enjoy the movie a lot more. Solid but not spectacular.

As for Jeff Who Lives At Home I just found it to be very refreshing. The movie was so very Duplass but I really enjoyed it for that. It also reminded me how much I loved Cedar Rapids which more people should watch (the movies are unrelated except for Ed Helms starring in both).

Cedar Rapids was tremendously average. I liked Reilly in it, the whole cast pretty much works, but it was far from anything special.

On that note, have you seen Cyrus? I like that movie a lot, its like a more serious Step Brothers almost.
