I watched it as well - very good. Thought-provoking, and I found myself continually sidestepped by the plot. Interesting to read the back story of why they used the term "prawn" and how that refers to several plot details (look up Parktown Prawn on wikipedia).

Erm...  Different animal.  Literally.

Ok, so
Alien = suspense and claustrophobic birth trauma-type horror movie.
Aliens = Go-get-the-bad-guys bug hunt adventure, where the bad guys are badder than expected.  Cue 'oops.'
Alien3 = A think-piece about the maternal ramifications of bug hunts.
Alien Resurrection = A cartoon.
AVP = Really...?  oh dear.

Prometheus is a think-piece adventure about longterm ramifications of genetic engineering and the law of unintended consequences.

Or, it could just be a movie about tentacles.  You decide.   ;D

I went to see it tonight. It's just an Alien prequel. Facehuggers, humans impregnated with aliens, same alien carriers as the first film, careless morons pissing about when exploring an alien spaceship.

What really bugged me was they discovered a map to life on another planet billions of miles away... so they sent a collection of the stupidest people they could find.

Great effects, cool aliens and spaceships, shit script and very predictable story.

Moonrise kingdom

Wow, no holds barred wierdnesd, all done for fun

Prometheus. Great visuals. Storyline a dogs dinner. Disappointing.

Tron: Legacy

Visually stunning, but the 80s were cooler in the 80s.
