Honest Trailers – Prometheus

From the director of all those Russell Crowe movies you never saw. And the writer of LOST’s
unsatisfying final episode. Comes a sort-of prequel that doesn’t use the best parts
of the Alien franchise. Prometheus. A film whose first 30 minutes are mostly landscape
shots. Where two scientists are on a quest to find extraterrestrial life based on really
flimsy evidence. A trillion-dollar mission manned by the worst crew in space. A lazy
captain, who leaves his crew to die. A stoner geologist with state of the art computer maps,
radio communication, mapping balls, and GPS. MILLBURN:
We are at 7401477, why? NARRATOR:
Who still gets lost. An inconsistent biologist who is scared of a 2000 year old dead body, MILLBURN:
No, ship’s good. NARRATOR:
but falls in love with clearly dangerous alien snake. MILLBURN:
Hey, baby. NARRATOR:
And an idiot woman who can only run in straight lines. A film with so much CGI, the visual
effects department forgot to change anyone’s heart rate. One man will achieve his lifelong
dream of finding aliens but somehow feels like a failure after only investigating for
6 hours. And one woman will give forced exposition. SHAW:
I can’t create life. NARRATOR:
And will create life DAVID:
You’re pregnant. NARRATOR
And get her uterus cut open which will hurt a lot during standing, but not jumping, falling
or repelling. A film so forced, it attempts to connect to the Alien franchise by having
someone drink a drop of black goo then impregnate our main character with an squid baby which
impregnates an engineer which creates an alien that only kinda looks like the aliens in the
real movies even though they already showed a picture of that queen alien on a wall. An
epic quest that has no answers or payoff to anything, like: The green goo. The giant head
statue. The disregard of evolution. This green crystal. The engineers’ hatred of humans.
The black goo. The black goo creating an eye worm. The black goo creating a zombie. The
black goo dissolving an engineer. The reason why people in the holograms are running into
a room full of black goo. David murdering someone for no reason. The engineers leaving
ancient humans maps to their weapons facilities. And why it matters he was Vicker’s dad.
Starring: Noomi Rapeface, Data, Dr. Manhattan, Black Oil from The X-Files, Charlie The Ron,
Benjamin Button and Super Vagina. Prometheus. God, please just stay away from Blade Runner.
