Haha yeah he's a good guy to know, a good guy all-around, he's excited for RIPD to come out, I think it'll be killer!  As soon as I have some concrete on Deadpool I'll be here dropping the hints.

SC: you aren't the only one with those concerns, which is why the popular belief is that a PG-13 hits cinema and a R hits the home, I'm not always a fan of that because usually the inferior version gets put on display while the definitive version becomes a coaster and rots away in the cult annals.  But Deadpool is a great character that could easily have mass appeal, we hopefully will know either way sooner rather than later.

I thought Prometheus was a visually stunning movie.  It was breathtaking and is one of the two movies I would suggest being seen in 3D (Avatar is the other) due to the inginuity of the way they built the holographic map in 3D.  I haven't seen Life of Pi but I can't imagine it deserving the Oscar for FX over Prometheus.

But the characters were forgettable and, aside from Fassbender, the acting was mediocre.  Granted, the characters were so underwritten that it would hard for even the best actor in the world to make them believable.  They were all straight from the stock character playbook.

The characters did act like fools and I saw most of the plot developments coming a mile away.

And they shattered my suspension of disbelief when the main character had a C-section and then was running around and jumping about just a few minutes later.  I don't care how good future pain killers are.  They aren't THAT good.

The "deep" questions the movie asked were shallow as a puddle.  Where do we come from?  Who created us and why?  Give me a break!  Aside from the fact that these are questions that every person ever born has thought about and are therefore not particurlarly special or unique, they weren't answered.  Yeah, humans were apparently created by these alien guys but they didn't address why or how they did that.  Or why they decided to create the Aliens to destroy us (I know, they originally had in mind to include something about Jesus but it wasn't in the movie).  Surely there was a better way to get rid of us than creating such a dangerous and uncontrollable life form as the Aliens.

And even if you say "we were created by aliens" that begs the ultimate cosmic question.  Where did THEY come from?

I have a prediction to make about the Promethus sequel.  If the heroine (who's name I can't remember) does get to the alien's home world she will find that they didn't go back to Earth and finish the job of wiping us out because their own planet was overrun and destroyed by the Aliens they created to destroy us.  Oops.

Still, if the sequel is as beautiful as Prometheus was then it will still be worth watching even if the story and acting are no better.

Wish, has anybody asked Reynolds to come back for a Green Lantern sequel or approached him about a Justice League project?

Kara, as far as where the Engineers came from, we may yet find that out! There's only been hints, so in the sequel Ridley will most likely give even more clues or outright show us! I LOVED Prometheus, shallow characters and plotholes notwithstanding! I want MORE!!!!

Kara:  He's signed to play GL beyond a sequel........but there is a hard-date and it's approaching fast.  The people at the top believe in him as the character and I'm pretty sure that the next time we see GL on screen it will indeed be Ryan.  I can't stress enough how important the release of Man of Steel is to the future of many game-players in the DCU.  We will hear a lot of news in the weeks after its release, good or bad.

Wish, I look forward to seeing Reynolds as Hal Jordan again.  I just hope that the next GL movie is better written because the script of the first GL film was a mess. 

Jordan wasn't a sympathetic hero, not because of Reynolds' acting skills but because the character was written as a selfish, immature whiner.

I get that you want to start your hero out as somebody who needs to accomplish some self discovery so that you can see that journey in the film.  But Jordan was portrayed as SO unsure of himself and needy that I spent most of the film wanting to slap him upside the head and shout "GROW UP!" in his face.

But Reynolds didn't write the script.  So if they can get a decent script I'm sure he will be good in it.

Say hi for me.  :-)

I think Hal suffered from Villian loss his play of Sinestro showed better acting chops in my opinion, lets hop into the yellow lanterns and we may have a good flick.

SarcasticCaveman 3/7/2013 1:24:14 PM

 Yeah, Mark Strong as Sinestro was my FAVORITE part about the Green Lantern movie...they guy is so versatile, IMO.
