Prometheus (*** 1/2)
Sketchy android with milk blood
Where did we come from?
POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD! I went into this movie without too many preconceptions—I've seen Alien and Aliens (and Alien vs. Predator, natch), but am not a huge fan of the series, nor am I all that knowledgeable about the Alien universe. (It actually wasn't until recently that I'd seen all of the first two movies.)
My immediate reaction after the movie ended is that I liked it. It was more of a thinking movie than a sci-fi horror movie (like the rest of the Alien movies). There was a bit of gore, a few aliens and a bastardy android. The more I talk about it with Colt and my friends who've seen it, however, the more questions I have. I'm left with a lot of open-ended "hmmmms." I do now understand how it was a prequel, but not a prequel, though. It seemed like a prequel up until the very end, but then it split off from the known canon, or at least, it seemed like it. And it definitely left the door open for sequels.
I'd like to see it again, to perhaps glean more from the movie. But that can wait until it's out on DVD.
