Prometheus – By Chris Bischoff
I think its important for someone who wants to tell stories to constantly be ‘rewriting’, be it of their own works, or of someone elses.
Like the many swathes of people around the world, I went to watch Prometheus. I went in having only watched 2 Trailers, and generally avoiding all spoilers, viral ads, interviews, and reviews. And you know what? I enjoyed it.
Sure, it wasnt ALIEN, or ALIENS-but it certainly wasnt the worst movie I’ve ever seen (as some of the more scathing reviewers would have you know).
But then time passed…and I really started to think about the movie. What annoys me about Prometheus ISNT the plot holes, or the really strange character development. No, its that with just a few more drafts at the OUTLINE stage, they could have had an ABSOLUTE CLASSIC on their hands.
See, there are many many forums of debate going around about Prometheus, but honestly I think these debates arent in the ‘Did the top stop spinning’, or ‘How many Deloreans existed at one time?’ vein, but rather in the ‘Why did Batman have nipples?’ way.
Im not really going to go into an actual review of Promtheus here, because there are THOUSANDS of those online. What I am going to do is a ‘this is how I would have done it’ thing.
