Re: Prometheus - Blu-ray review

Thanks for the review Peter, I got to see this in IMAX and was just blown away by the visuals. It is just a beautiful movie to look at and the blu-ray does an amazing job of reproducing what I saw in the theater.
I was mildly annoyed by some of the story elements but overall I really enjoyed the movie, enough to purchase the 4 disk 3D set the day it came out.
I would love to see them continue to fill in the timeline between Prometheus and Alien.

Re: Prometheus - Blu-ray review

A beautiful movie and great review. I noted you say Prometheus and Alien are not directly linked. In the end of the movie the "alien" creature is revealed - or maybe was that only on my version of it (HD download from Amazon)?

I would have written less but I didn't have the time.

The alien xenomorph creature does make a "cameo" appearance.
I read that the movies are not directly linked but that they exist in the same universe.

Funny, I think the movies are directly linked. When the alien space ship crashes at the end of the movie, isn't this the crashed ship that is found at the start of the original 1979 Alien movie? I'm thinking the creature went on to lay eggs in the ship which go dormant untill that later ship arrives to investigate.

Which they didn't just happen to stumble onto. The company sent them there to find those creatures just as they do in all the sequels.

The movies are most certainly linked together and good eye on noticing the ship. I read that it's possible Stanly Kubrick might even make another to tie up some loose ends on the story.
