Darlings, for today’s lunchtime guyditorial, we decided to go in a pouty-lipped direction.
Prometheus star Logan Marshall-Green is featured in the latest issue of Bullett magazine photographed by Eliot Lee Hazel.
Okay, not the most stylish or interesting editorial in the world, but he’s got a big movie out and he’s cute to look at, which is enough to justify it. And speaking of that new movie…
We grabbed a moment to catch Prometheus this weekend and since we can’t seem to go more than twenty minutes without expressing an opinion about something, here’s what we think: A visually stunning film; in fact, we’d go so far as to say it’s one of the most visually stunning science fiction films of all time. Fassbender gave an amazing performance; so much so that we’d cheer him on if he became the first actor to win an Oscar playing a robot. Other than that, there’s little to recommend. The rest of the cast is tragically wasted (especially Idris Elba and Charlize Theron), the dialogue is often as tin as it gets, and both the plot and the actions of the characters almost never make the slightest bit of sense. Don’t let the pre-press fool you. It’s every inch an Alien prequel; there’s absolutely nothing subtle about that part of it. Despite our issues with how the characters acted, the actual “alien” parts of the story didn’t bother us at all, even if they cast the original films in a decidedly different light. But there are times the plotting gets so bad or characters wind up acting wildly different from scene to scene that we actually wondered how the film made it to print in its current form. THAT’S how poorly put together it all is. A shame, really. Go see it for the visuals and for Fassbender’s Peter O’Toole impersonation, but don’t expect major scares or even a story that makes much sense.
