My wife and I enjoyed cranking up the home theater and watching this. There are some serious LFE in this movie that my sub loved.
Well, if the Pioneer update doesn't happen this W/E, I guess I'll have to go back to the Sony. Who'd have thought that my old BDP-S350 that has at least one sftware version behind would play a new Blu-ray that a new Pioneer with the latest software won't!

Really looking forward to watching this movie!

Re: Prometheus - Blu-ray Review

I just had the absolute pleasure of watching this flick. Wow. I'm actually taken a bit by surprise at how much I enjoyed it.

The video quality, to start with, is unbelievable. Peter, I think you nailed it in your review. Stunning. Beautiful. Eye popping. A+

The audio, also... very well done. The LFE was hammering away from the first scene. I'm a big fan of dynamic and well placed bass. I thought, at times, that the bass was misused (such, when the robot initiated a sequence that moved the giant chair in the alien control center... that sent off a cascade of rumbles that were equal to that of the space ship shots... ), but not being too picky, here. Really good stuff, overall.


****Spoiler Alert*****

I have to comment on one scene... when the scientist Shaw went to the surgical machine to perform a c-section... um... that scene was a tough one for me. I am almost never squeamish, that that particular scene pushed me to the edge! I've seen, up close and personal, my wife opened up for a c-section and I know how uncomfortable that was for her (not to mention how she nearly squeezed my hand off!!!!).

Also, the initial alien attack on the two scientist trapped in the ship... with the alien shoving itself down Millburn's throat? Wow. The CGI and execution made it look extremely real.


**** You may now read on******


All in all, great flick. You really need to open your mind and let this one wash over you. Highly recommend!

I've got the 3d version of this but it's a great movie with or without 3d. I'm probably the only guy on the planet who didn't know about the Alien connection until I saw the movie. I actually enjoyed this more on blu ray at home than i did in the theater. i like how the series uses an android to contrast what it means to be human. I hope they do a sequel!

Re: Prometheus - Blu-ray Review

David the robot was awesome and Prometheus 2 according to http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2316204/ is possibly in the works, but I think it's a sure thing considering the not so closed ending.

Picture quality on this was amazing!! Audio quality was ok. The movie itself was good. I wish I knew why they wanted to destroy humans though. Might have to watch it again.

audio for me was amazing but I'm like you might need to watch again to better understand.

To me that was the beauty of the film in exploration the eternal human drive for answers. The answer for the destruction may have well as been the same as for the seeding of life; because they can. This was kind of indicated between the conversation between David and Holloway.

Reminds me of Dustin Hoffman's line to Milla in The Messenger about "looking for rationality where none need exist."
