So, you are saying the film could suck based on the poster?


Is that unpopular?

I have seen footage of the film and it looks good. The poster is shit, sure, but I'm not going to say the film is going to suck based on that. Have you seen the trailers?

I don't watch trailers, why watch selected scenes from a film in advance?
If the overall reviews, plot or director of a film interests me then I'll watch it.

My optimism has fell upon viewing the poster, but I know I'll end up buying it on Blu Ray anyway.

But why base a film on its poster? That means absolutely nothing in this day and age. Nobody cares about posters, they don't focus on them any more. It's a shame, but that's the way it is.

I watch trailers to see if I want to see the film. It's just annoying that a lot of trailers ruin too much.

These posters alone made me want to watch them. They turned out to be favourite films of mine.

That still doesn't mean Prometheus is going to suck based on a crap poster though.

Never said it will for certain, but it's more likely to with a crap poster than a good one.

I disagree. X-Men First Class had crap posters and that's considered a good film. Sometimes the Marketing department just don't know how to sell a film. Doesn't mean the film sucks.

There's already a couple of good posters though, that shite one is fairly recent.

No, that's utter nonsense. If it is crap then the fact that the poster is also supposedly crap will be sheer coincidence.

I can almost guarantee both The Avengers, The Hobbit and Spiderman will dissapoint. DKR can't possibly be the ultimate conclusion and everyone will say Prometheus is great...just because its too sad to say otherwise.


Blah, I wrote this? I really know nothing. Then again, low expectations might have made it EVEN better.

Still think Spiderman will dissapoint and The Hobbit is my favourite book..so it can't live up to what is already in my head.

I have no idea about Prometheus: hated last trailer, loved the first ones. Scott hasn't made anything decent in recent years...he hasn't done sci-fi though.

Had Finchers been the first film I would agree: but I just don't see the point in this remake. More stylish and less televisual but in the end the performances aren't as good (Mara, while good, appears to just mimic Rapace and Craig is just not trying very hard) and the accents are all over the shop.

In the end I just don't see the point: not enough changed. Took away the subtitles and made it look a bit nicer. Surely not enough to warrant such an immediate remake.




Nail on the head.

In reference to Adam mentioning the critical response, it really annoyed me that it got such a favourable reaction given it's only a slightly more polished version of the Swedish original that for me serves no purpose other than to facilitate those too lazy to read subtitles.

It also fails to sort out any of the problems of the narrative, as Mr Kermode correctly pointed out.

Snow White and the Huntsman. I'm sorry but this looks so cliche' and by the numbers, right down to a dwarf saying "She's the one." in the trailer. I'm not even sure if the visuals are that impressive!

There's nothing wrong with voicing an opinion about what movies you think will be bad. May as well ban people saying they think certain movies will be great.

I don't think Batman and the Hobbit will be much good (Bane's Yoda voice, Jesus), but I hope they are. I like to be surprised.
