Prometheus: A success for Ridley Scott?

March 25th, 2016

A Ridley Scott movie and written by Damon Lindelof & Jon Spaihts, Prometheus is a science fiction movie released in 2012. The cast of this movie includes Guy Pearce as Peter Weyland, Michael Fassbender as David, Noomi Rapace as Elizabeth Shaw, Charlize Theron as Meredith Vickers and Iddris Elba as Janek. This movie revolves round the crew of a spaceship named Prometheus which is travelling into the space following a star map.

The movie starts with a scene of Earth seeding which is later supported by another scene of DNA matching. Being a Ridley Scott film, you won’t see aliens dancing through the movie rather the movie slowly builds up with a narration and tries to take the audience to the expected epic climax. The haunting visuals depicted in the movie are what keep the audience’s eyes glued to the screen. But unfortunately the audience never got to see the expected climax and was rather left disappointed.

Prometheus A success for Ridley ScottThe plot of the movie i.e. engineered humans is a topic which almost everyone must have thought about at some point of their life and the movie has raised the same question which must have excited the lot. After arousing the interest and the obvious curiosity and then ending the movie without answering the question raise is not what many expected. Get to know more on engineered humans at http://www.jtcvsonline.org/article/S0022-5223%2809%2901333-6/abstract?cc=y=. Being a Ridley Scott movie, people did expect some answers towards the end and although he does go about uncovering few layers but then stops it there without going further. This can though be justified by the sequel of the movie.

I for one would have enjoyed more had there been more scenes of what Guy Pearce delivered in the TED talk and even whet Michael Fassbander was trying to convey from the pre-release videos that went viral.  With the British accent, Noomi Rapace has done a great job. There are several best fighting scenes of her in the film including the one where she undertakes an automated surgery all by herself. The role of Charlize was not justified though. Being such a capable actress, her character had very less actions involved and even seemed bit forced at places.

Although Ridley had confirmed that, Prometheus is not a prelude to Alien but we did notice a somewhat lookalike alien seen in that escape pod resembling to french bulldogs. You can say this movie to be onetime watch one though you might watch again to admire the visual brilliance and the special effects done neatly with the other state of art equipments shown in the movie. Ridley has let no stone unturned to wow the audience as far as the movie’s visuals are considered.

This is a type of movie which you will enjoy more if you watch on your laptop with the headphones on rather than watching it in a theater. The reason being that the visual and sound effects are best enjoyed when you are distracted by the incessant gossipers who are very common in theaters. But then, it is up to you to opt for anyone.

What A Pet dog Really Demands

Devoted, pleasant, protective, affectionate, enjoyable. Those top qualities have actually gained dogs a special place in the lives and hearts of human beings.

Canines have a fundamental requirement for shelter, good nourishment, workout and also companionship. A pet will count on its owner for all of these requirements, along with training and also protection.

Will Prometheus 2 will in the gap?

March 25th, 2016

The thought of the possibility of life existing beyond Earth is something that almost everyone can relate to. And the biggest question, ‘Will we ever find out?’, still cannot be answered with 100% certainty Well, if the aliens are similar to what was shown in the movie Prometheus than its better left unanswered. You can read more about Prometheus by clicking here.

In the movie Prometheus, a bunch of explorers were hired to venture on a space mission to solve this millennium old puzzle. They started their journey in the hope of finding out the very starting point of human’s creation. Upon landing on the planet which they believed to be the only visitor to, they found out that that was not the case.

Will Prometheus 2 will in the gapIf you are about to watch Prometheus with an expectation of experiencing some sci-fi flicks then you better lower your expectations. This movie is more of a dram than action oriented. With that said, the trailer somewhat spoils the good portion of the movie having action which is already minimal.

After watching the trailer, I for one was expecting the average amount of action scenes and at an uptight pace. And my perspective was not of an endless action movie as this rarely happens but the movie could have given us a bit more of it.

The story of the movie hot fractured and the screenwriter were not able to bring out the entire crux of the theme, “meaning of life”. There were too many questions that were left unanswered and many of which did bother the audience.

A certain character in the movie performs an act which will change the mankind as we know it and yet we are an aware of the motive behind this. Read more about mankind at http://d.lib.rochester.edu/teams/text/ashley-mankind-introduction. The movie did score high points when we talk about the visuals. Let’s hope that Ridley Scott does justice to the theme in the coming sequel.

How David’s character was in Prometheus?

March 25th, 2016

The android David played by Michael Fassbender in Prometheus is such that will make you root for him and at the same time not trust him completely. His childlike behaviour and the curiosity to know about the surrounding and the people around is something that makes his character look innocent. There are parts in the movie were David goes  into a complete sociopath mode and all he wants is to seek the ultimate truth behind life as directed by Weyland Corporation.

How David’s character was in PrometheusSo, should David’s character be considered to be untrustworthy and bad? Perhaps the two years of solitude life that David spends in Prometheus when the other humans were resting in the cryosleep is what he had to himself when he enjoyed studying, learning, thinking more about humans and the likes. Read more about cryosleep at https://www.nasa.gov/content/torpor-inducing-transfer-habitat-for-human-stasis-to-mars/#.VvV_d0dRKtY. Everything went smooth until all the humans wake up from their long slumber and suddenly making David realize that he was not a human and had no soul.

But I would rather say that David was more than just being an android. During his solitude time, he evolved and developed many human characteristics which obviously he was not programmed to do. There were numerous comments over the internet cursing David and as he did whatever he wished to, there was something within David that drove him towards his goals. Elizabeth Shaw was the only person about whom David seemed curious and we all know his faithfulness until that very point. The role of David was that of a thankless crew and in fact Dr. Shaw was the only one who said him ‘Thank You’ when he saved her life. He even confessed to Shaw about intrusively watching her dreams while she was asleep during those two years span. The unhidden agendas of David and his curiosities made him an unpredictable and suspicious character throughout the movie. Click here to read more about the movie Prometheus.

A closer look into Prometheus 2

March 25th, 2016

Although Ridley Scott was busy with his science fiction thriller The Martian, starring Matt Damon, he does have some plan about Prometheus somewhere at the back of his mind. The release dates are not finalized yet and as the movie is in its development stage, it is being revealed by the filmmaker that the movie will have a somewhat new kind of alien in it.

While speaking about Prometheus 2, Scott said that he is now trying to move away from dragons, gods and like. While planning to introduce a new variety of extraterrestrial life, Scott expresses his desire of creating something which is scary and real. Get to know more about extraterrestrial life at https://www.cfa.harvard.edu/news/2013-06. As per Scott, aliens are the scariest monsters for the movie industry as they are real and so he is trying to reintroduce the alien in a completely fresh form.

A closer look into Prometheus 2When further asked about the characteristics and features of the new alien, Ridley Scott said that the new alien will have resemblance with the one in original Alien in 1979 and in addition to that, the audience can also expect something out of ordinary. Read about Prometheus 2012 here.

One will really appreciate the fact that Scott is trying to explore new dimensions with the alien designs and we all will be looking forward to see the horrific creature that the team will come up with just like french bulldogs. But if you among the lot who were waiting to see any development of Xenmorph then you might get be a bit disappointment. The Alien universe was far the best part of Prometheus and doing away of it in its sequel is something that might not be appreciated by some fans. Hope that Scott will be able to reach some threshold among the two and do justice to both sides. There is at least more two year for the movie to hit the screens and till then we can all use our imagination on how this movie can stun us.

Prometheus (2012): Disappointment for many

March 25th, 2016

Prometheus is the latest venture back into the science fiction movie world. Many people had an assumption of this movie being something like a pre-Alien one. Well, it is not. This is neither an Alien movie nor a horror movie and one can even argue on the fact this being a god movie at all.

The confusion on the plot of the movie is the biggest shortcomings of the movie. Or even if it knows the exact message it wants to convey, if failed to do so due to some reason or the other. The movie came as something making the audience believe that it is going to be another big hit from Scott as that of the masterpiece movie, Alien in 1979. Get more information on Alien 1979 at http://edition.cnn.com/2016/03/07/africa/bolaji-badejo-alien/. As soon as you see the movie, you can tell right away that it is not progressing in that direction.

Prometheus (2012) Disappointment for manyAs the movie was progressing, it started creating more confusion due to the sudden erratic behavior of the characters and the plot point coming and going without any substantial connection with the rest of the movie. Click here to know more about Prometheus.

But there are certain things which are good about the movie. The film is beautiful no doubt and the visuals of spaceships and other are top notch. Ridley Scott has put in great effort when it comes to cinematography and this is clearly justified in the movie. It is an amazing experience to watch it in high definition. The cast is also very good with the like of Charlize Theron, Idris Elba and Noomi Rapace.

So if you are a fan of a visually rich film then Prometheus will make it to your collection. For other, if you can manage with the cobbled plot along with the erratic behaviors of the characters at times then you will be able to appreciate certain other parts of the film.
