Last night I saw prometheus, then in the early hours of the morning saw At the Movies review of prometheus. David and Margeret make a valid point that there is no really outstanding performance in the movie, lacking a Sigourney Weaver type stage presence, the strongest performance is the Android David's homage to Peter O'Tools Lawrence of Arabia.

But the true star are the sets, and the ominous movements through them, and above all Giger's designs from the original Alien film. It was just emersive and emotional purely because of that. The movie could have had no actors in it for all I care, the story of travelling for 2 and a half years out into space into an alien tomb was the fucking best reason to go see a film in years. Years I tell you.
