Short answer, yes.

Longer answer, I thought the additional things killed the pacing. The movie is too long and bloated for its own good. Everything was CGI, which I think is a downgrade from LOTR where the Orcs were all humans in makeup. I also hated how everything wound up as an epic battle, even the encounter with the Trolls. I can't believe there are going to be 2 more of these things.

That's redundant. Only vanilla shit has likeable characters. The freaky stuff has has an undercurrent--if not a plainly visible overcurrent--of sadomasochistic elements, necessitating a facade of abuse and transgression between the players.

Not that it really matters, because without genuine pathos and emotional honesty--which so few works have to begin with--likeable characters are overwhelmingly pasteurized grey paste in humanoid form meant to cater to the middlebrow sentiment of oral fixaters clamped to the teat of polite non-confrontation.

That said, Prometheus is a wonder. I love that it had the balls to pull the cruel bait and switch, transitioning from grand quest for enlightenment, search for God, discovery of the origins of humanity and all that overplayed, weepy crap to a straight-up nosedive into body-horror pulp shlock. It was an absolute joy watching all the hope and purpose drain from the characters lives as they plunged head in onto maddening incomprehensibility. I'm a bit wary of any sequels attempting to answer the lingering questions; it's more fun not to know.
"Now, from Nature we obtain abundant information about ourselves, and precious little about others. About the woman you clasp in your arms, can you say with certainty that she does not feign pleasure? About the woman you mistreat, are you quite sure that from abuse she does not derive some obscure and lascivious satisfaction? Let us confine ourselves to simple evidence: through thoughtfulness, gentleness, concern for the feelings of others we saddle our own pleasure with restrictions, and make this sacrifice to obtain a doubtful result." -The Divine Marquis

That was one area where Prometheus prospered beautifully and where a (thematically) similar movie, Event Horizon, failed spectacularly. Prometheus pulled off the bait and switch from "initial mission" to horror quite nicely, giving us a complete breakdown of order into survival mode. Event Horizon just went with gore, gore and more gore.

Ehh...it was ok. I liked promethius a bit more though.

I always thing event horizon kinda looks like some kind of love child of a semi truck and the enterprise. Thats always the first thing i think of when someone mentions that movie.

Yes, especially the part where they managed to turn a single supporting character, who only appears fully in the car park level of the game into the antagonist of the film, while aging him by 20 years!

:lol: Even better than that is the part after the credits in which Mona comes up to Payne in a bar and, presumably as a sequel hook, hands Max some info about the woman they're going to take on next... Said woman being the actual villain of the game! :rofl:

If it were not for that i think the valkyries and how unrelated to the game they are would have easily taken the cake :lol: This almost makes me want to watch the movies again to refresh my memory on it's terribleness.

Has The Room been mentioned yet? Although it was hilarious to watch, it doesn't change the fact that the film was a trainwreck.

It must have been mentioned already, but it's too obvious for this thread anyway.

Raiders of Galaxy, Solar Adventure and Space Thunder Kids certainly belong to this thread.

You know what's the only movie where i actually left the theather during screening? The Happening.

It's not so much that the movie was bad (but yeah it was pretty uninteresting) But me, my father and sister were too disgusted by the absurd and unnecessary violence. After we saw a man (one of the many victims of, uh, dissapearing-bees-suicide-impulses) Get into a zoo and extends his arms to a lion, only for the lion to bite them off in incredibly gory and detailed fashion, both me and my father said "Ugh, fuck it" and decided to walk away. I think my father was more disgusted while i felt more shocked/sick.

That was definitely disgusting, but for me the most cringe-worthy part was when the guy went and laid down in the path of an industrial lawn mower. It's one of the few parts of the movie that I actually remember.

Was that before or after the Lion scene? I remember a scene very similar to that, but since the one i remember relied more on horrible sound (I think there wasn't any bit of blood visible, just the lawnmower... Shaking a lot and horrible sounds of retching flesh) and wasn't as direct with the gore it wasn't as shocking or disturbing for me.

Even worse is that the plot is absolutely retarded, complete with heavy-handed message and all.
