Advent calendar 2013: day 24 "Prometheus"

Prometheus: a load of balls.
Yes, it's Christmas very soon, so you won't want to be sitting around reading this website. We'll take a quick look at "Prometheus", and then you can move on, wrapping presents, because I know that's what you really want to be getting on with.

Prometheus is a prequel film to the fabulous "Alien" series, and it's crap. Prometheus is a visually stunning film with a great musical score with some superb acting (considering the script they've got to work with), and that's all that can be positively said it. If you enjoyed the Alien films, you probably will want to watch this, but prepare yourself to be seriously disappointed. I just wish they had put as much thought and energy into the script, because it's crap. If you still want to get a copy from Amazon UK, click here, but I wouldn't bother, because it's crap.

You're better off reading the unrelated poem "Prometheus" by Goethe, which is wonderful.

Return tomorrow, when I'll be revealing the most horrific and terrifying film I've ever seen.
