its a silly film, but, i found it very enjoyable. my friend and i both laughed so hard our chests hurt. also, the female lead is disturbing in her beauty. if the notion of an animatronic albino mountain lion seems like an amusing notion, you have to see this movie. i plan on a second viewing this week.
the point i keep returning to when re imagining prometheus is the stark juxtaposition between the lofty themes the movie flails at and utterly drab and utilitarian luggage.
the expedition, which seeks to explore and ultimately confront humanity's creators does so furnished with unbelievably lame luggage. outfit up you motherfuckers! you are embarking on a mission of limitless grandiosity. its depth of purpose as deep as the pockets of those bankrolling the whole thing. and yet, the space duffles produced to get the mission done are drab? limey? one cavity for storage? no nifty compartments?
the mission called for luggage equipped with tons of eccentric design choices: outlandish pockets, meticulous closures and the kind of panache and swagger that refuses to be ignored.
shame on you prometheus.
the reviewer, in my opinion, is pretty close to spot on. anyone, wishing to discredit his essay needs to address the movie's overblown grandiosity. it misuses a great deal of its energy alluding to existential questions, only to end up failing to produce any story worth actually telling.
plus, the space duffles the crew have been issued are bullshit. i don't believe a multi trillion dollar mission would blast off with nondescript, non ergonomic luggage. if i was launching a mission to grapple with the greatest questions mankind has ever addressed i would sure as shit outfit up!
