VaderFan at the Movies: Prometheus

The sci-fi movie that many waited for years to come, and it’s finally hear. I have only one thing to say about this film, it’s a pure sci-fi film, ’nuff said. But, to those of you who are interested in seeing the film, but doesn’t know what being a pure sci-fi film means, let me describe it to you.  A pure sci-fi film is all about the possibilities of being in space, that sort of sense of descovery, the loneliness, and while at the same time, questioning our humanity, such as what is the definition of being human, what made humans, etc. Prometheus is no exception to that, and it also followed the same beat as the hit-cult film, Alien.

Spoilers, the movie is a prequel to Alien. That is the hype behind the whole film, since the whole film was based around the space jockey that briefly appeared in Alien for about five seconds. It then goes deeper than just the space jockey, but the creation of humans and the xenomorphs (the aliens). However, what the director Ridley Scott, who also directed Alien, did was set it apart from the legendary movie series. It became its own standalone film, and you wouldn’t really associate it with Alien unless you’re a fan, and were able to see all the little easter eggs throughout the film.

Now the beats are the same as Alien, making it true to the original film. It starts off with a crew finding something, unleashing an egg that has something in it, everyone starts dying, an android masterminding the whole scenario, and a redhead as the main character. The only thing it was missing is a cat, which is an asshole. I’m not gonna spoil much on the connection to the Alien movie, but there wasn’t much either, which I thought was the great thing about it. Anyone who never saw Alien can still watch this, and still be able to enjoy this, if they’re sci-fi enthusiast.

As I mention earlier, this is a pure sci-fi film. Now, a sci-fi film isn’t all about special effects, cool costumes, and a simple plot of man against aliens, or an evil empire. It is more about humanity, bringing up questions about who we are, and leaving the audience thinking and answering those questions themselves. 2001: A Space Oddyssey is a great example of a sci-fi film, since it’s all about the future, the possibilities, being done in an artful way, and leaving the mystery behind the giant monoliths unanswered. The same goes with Prometheus with the space jockeys. Their inentions were left unanswered, and the “body huggers” and “snake huggers” shown similar to the traditional face huggers weren’t explain at all. As an audience we can only speculate what they are, and it also what makes me miss these kind of sci-fi films.

I seem to talk around the movie a lot, and I apologize for that. It is a movie that is hard to describe on paper, and is something that must be seen and discussed amongst peers. They just don’t make these kinds of films anymore, and I just have to talk more about the kind of movie it is. As a sci-fi enthusiast, I love it. It may not be for the casual movie going audience, but it has enough to make anyone scream, shake, and stay interested. It is, by the way, the summer of nerds, and I hope Ridley Scott would continue making more sci-fi movies.

VaderFan signing out, and praising Prometheus.

VaderFan at the Movies: The Summer of Nerds

ImageSummer has started, and that means it is time to see all the mega hit blockbusters with super awesome action scenes, big name stars, and hopefully a somewhat decent plot. However, this year is quite different from other years, being that there are a ton of movies that are mainly directed at the nerd/geek culture.

Hunger Games came out during April, and it is a nerd movie, being based on a novel set in an alternate reality with some sci-fi elements, and a cult following. But, I don’t really consider the summer of nerd really starting until The Avengers, which came out not too long ago. I’ll put it down and say this movie is freaking fantastic, and if you haven’t seen this movie, then stop reading this and go watch it RIGHT NOW! A mega blockbuster hit, made 200 million dollars over the weekend, and I had the ultimate nerdgasm just watching this movie. But, that is just the beginning of the nerdgasm I’ll be experiencing this summer.

The next movie to be mentioned would be Prometheus. Any nerd/geek will be watching it for only reasons a nerd/geek would know for at least two reasons: 1. It’s the prequel to Alien, and 2. Ridley Scott is returning to sci-fi. If that is not a good enough reason to see the movie, well the latest trailer that was showcased before The Avengers should be enough. Ridley Scott, as many should know, directed the mega-cult sci-fi film, Blade Runner, and Alien. Both films are what put him on the map as a director, which led him to direct Oscar worthy films. Now, having him coming back to sci-fi is a dream come true for any sci-fi fans, especially those who is a fan of the Alien series. This movie will solve all the questions that were left unanswered in Alien, such as the origin of the space jockey, and maybe where the xenomorphs came from. This’ll definately be another nergasm that’ll blow in people faces.

Of course, we can’t go talking about nerd movies this summer without mentioning The Dark Knight Rises. Many considered The Dark Knight to be the greatest comic book film ever made, except for The Avengers, but the thing is, it actually be argued that it is still the greatest comic book film ever made. It was dark, gritty, it had great character development not just from one, but all the characters, an overall theme, and nobody can’t argue with the exceptional performance of Heath Ledger as the Joker. This is all due to the fact of the great directorial work that Cristopher Nolan brings to the table, combining his background in making artful movies to bringing realism and believability to the comic book film. And the trailers, the latest also being shown before The Avengers, shows nothing but promise. It’s going to be more dark, Bane may be a much bigger villain than the Joker was, explosions, people dying left and right, Catwoman, and the only thing I can think of just watching these trailers is Batman’s downfall.

The films I mentioned above are the three biggest this summer, and it already kicked off with the incredible showing of The Avengers. Now, we got some other honorable mentions such as Men In Black 3, Pixar’s Brave, GI Joe, and Total Recall. Believe me, by the end of summer I’ll be lipping for many months. I’m pretty sure I didn’t forget to mention any other nerd movie this year, but if I did, please comment.

Oh, screw Battleship!
