I thought the ending was actually what turned the film from being just 'interesting', or 'a bit of a curiosity', into something else altogether. I can't understand why anyone would find it problematic ... well I can but just think they're massively wrong.

I was only talking about the dialogue because Symbols previously said he needed subtitles for The Thick of It, so I assumed if he was having problems with that he'd definitely struggle with bits of The Witch. But yeah, it's really not that hard to follow.

Re: Alien Covenant -
I thought Prometheus ended with what'sherbutt heading to the planet of the bigass humanoid alien motherfuckers. I hope that plot line hasn't been abandoned. I really wanted to see those things in full scale "This is our house" mode... see what they were capable of.

I actually thought the one from Prometheus was creepy as fuck.

So while I'd love to see a proper Xenomorph origin story, I hope Scott doesn't course correct too much just because Prometheus left some ADD Alien fans feeling butthurt because it detracted a bit from the formula.

Still, that poster just looks super duper awesome. Seriously.

My concerns here. I don't get a sequel to "Prometheus" from this poster. I get an "Alien" 1979 from this. I'm worried that the studio of Fox once again pressured Ridley Scott to make a movie more in line with "Alien" and less like "Prometheus". If that is the case is Ridley Scott just repeating himself? "Prometheus" felt like a reason for him to return to the world of "Alien" without it being like any other "Alien" movie, and now this poster likes like just another "Alien" movie. The more I think of the poster if feels very uninspired and generic.

I was fine with Trainspotting. Had some trouble with Snatch, but mostly because the "gypsies" were deliberately incomprehensible. That was a good movie.

BTW: did you know Trainspotting 2 is real and coming? For fuck's sake, the first one was the only good performance Ewan M. has ever given. Now his tubby middle aged failure face is going to fuck the whole thing up.

That's pretty much exactly what I was thinking and trying to say.

Prometheus actually got pretty good reviews. It just didn't break any records. And all the kids who wanted an instant gratification Alien prequel didn't get the throwback they wanted.

I fucking loved Prometheus. I want a sequel.

From all I have read, this was always Scott's plan for Prometheus 2. It will all make sense. I am excited. This one should be birth of Xenomorphs as we know them now.

That alien in Prometheus was awesome looking tho.

It isn't what you expect and I think that's what is turning off audiences. It's certainly not "Independence Day" or hell even "Mars Attacks". It's subdued, intelligent and could be described as a science-procedural. But man did it work for me.

"carnal treachery" and "perfectly sculpted cheekbones" were reason enough for me

the disc is not on netflix yet--but one can "save" it to the queue preemptively

i don't expect it to see it anywhere near me until then, but look forward to it

I know im two pages behind but, I remember in the 90's Vh1 use to show Rocky Horror like, every month just as much as Grease. they even did like a popup video thing with it one time like with Grease. ha.

I hate the music in it but, amazingly it gets even more subversive as the years go by. lots of 70's movies are like that. it's not what happens it's how it's executed. lots of atmosphere back then.

I love those sexy pre-punk girls in it though.

I'm in the UK so it may do some kind of festival here in the early new year before it goes to DVD. I watched the trailer online and it definitely seems to have nailed the look and feel of those films it's pastiching.

Batman v Superman

I enjoyed bits of this but in the end there was far too much muddle. If anything it does prove that Christopher Nolan can control complexity whereas Zack Snyder can't.

I actually grew to like Ben Affleck's Batman more than I expected but Eisenberg's Lex Luther was almost unwatchably irritating. As bad a villain as I can remember.

The main problem though was that it seemed to be trying to pack in far too much, to the point where at times I wasn't really sure what was going on (At one point I even had to check there wasn't a film that'd come after Man of Steel that I'd missed which would've helped me make more sense of it. )

In essence, whtever criticisms I have of Nolan, if you wanna see just how good he is at this kind of thing, watch Zack Snyder's efforts with similar material.

I seemed to enjoy BvS more than most... but yes, the huge problem is that it should have been two or three films. Instead it was a mess.

Well put. I too enjoyed it. How could I not, really, being the DC fan that I am? But it shoved too much in. Doomsday should have been a Supes solo film villain. This movie certainly wasn't as bad as a lot of people thought, but I'm pretty sure it was only made because the studio was sure that Batman would be a draw.

Man of Steel (which Nolan had more control over) was SO SO SO much better. It should have been followed up with a direct sequel. I for one have no interest or need to see the Justice League together in a film. Just Supes. Maybe Flash eventually. Wonder Woman, yeah, but in their own films. Batman should be left alone for a while. Hell, it's only been 4 years since Dark Knight Rises. Though I too was happier with Affleck's Bruce WYne than I thought I'd be... as Batman, he did nothing for me, and I thought his suit was stupid af.

Jess Eisenberg suffered from Joker syndrome BIG TIME in this movie. But to be fair, that wasn't actually Lex Luthor we were seeing. It was his "son" (re: clone, if they're going by the comics). Though why they decided to make that decision without making it more clear, I will never know. Big ass fuck up. Eisenberg is a good actor too, which made this very sad. He'd earned a few Oscar noms prior to this role, now a lot of people are just sick of him.
