Speculation? Anticipation? Concerns about disappointment/false hype? Bring 'em in, fellas.

That was a fairly interesting video. I saw the movie in theaters, but never watched the DVD deleted scenes/director's cut. Can anyone say whether or not their assumptions in this video were proven true?

All good movies can be interpreted in different ways. For example, I could debate the merits of what >>39616 said, but ultimately those points don't really matter, as there is no evidence correlating them anywhere, and it would just be dudes arguing on the internet.

Even with DVD commentaries, Directors rarely talk about what they ultimately meant with the movie. A truly good movie leaves a certain ambiguity, because what a good movie does in addition to entertain is that it also makes you think, on some level. While I have my own idea about what the movie is about, generally there's a few highly valid interpretations for any movie that has that ambiguity. You can write that it's about this that or the other, but ultimately you're presenting a thesis and then supporting it with scenes from the movie, and discussing how those scenes support your thesis.

That said, all of the questions "answered" in that video are really things I'd consider to be kind of trivial to any comprehensive thesis about the film. They're little things that don't necessarily matter to the overall thematic and narrative arc, and while some of them are ambiguous, the mere fact of their ambiguity does not really change the thematic structure, or metaphor, whatever it is. For example: The question of whether Vickers is a robot is largely irrelevant to the theme, mostly because we never have any real hint one way or the other, and even if she was, what does that really change about the movie? And if she really was, wouldn't Weyland be more proud of her? She'd be a better facsimile than David. Ultimately though, the scene in which Janick asks her if she is a robot, and she responds by inviting him to her quarters, suggests that she is a red-blooded woman, and has no problem proving it to anyon

That part is simply those guys fan-guessing, as much as you and me could. The black goo being a weapon is the theory presented in the movie, and while it is not set in stone (the captain was extrapolating from his experience, and we are talking about a total alien society), is the one we have unti a sequel is made, if ever. The Engineers in that base were not exactly good guys or even neutral, so I am partial to the idea.

As for why the goo was used to create life if it is a weapon, well consider how we can use rockets to put a man on the moon or to nuke a city. Technology having both civil and military uses is pretty normal, but once again, this is just fanguessing.

And about the matter of ambiguety and not giving all the answers, well the movie's theme is "finding answers", so there is a reason why some people were annoyed. Perhaps Scott's intention was to reply those philosophical questions with "sometimes there are no answers" or even "sometimes it's better not to know" (which would be very Lovecraftian!), but since the movie ends once again with a search for answers, that kinda dilutes the point. Myself, I see Shaw at the end as a reflection of the audience, angry at the creators and claiming for more answers!

Excuse me


Godzilla - Official Teaser Trailer [HD]youtube thumb

Personally I think this is a very suspect trailer. I really enjoy all the hazmat stuff I see, gives off the feel of an actual disaster movie. Not a disaster porn movie, but a DISASTER movie, with genuinely bad things happening to innocent people. That said I am disturbed by how very, very much this reminds me of the World War Z trailer.

Still got shivers during the Halo Jump though. That absolute devastation. . .

So, there are some reviews out. The consensus seems to be that:

A) Bryan Cranston was good, and the movie would have benefited greatly if he was the main character.

B) Aaron Taylor sucks ass, and he brings down the general quality of the film

C) the first third of the film actually spuns a nice mystery, but the second act doesn't really do anything with that, and nobody cares anymore when shit finally hits the fan.

No; spambots are bumping threads, but the threads don't fall back down when the spam is deleted. So they'll resurrect threads from two years ago...

Alright, fair enough. It's just for every ten shit movies we get a Cabin In The Woods or a similar ilk, and it's a shame that that can't get awards because so much of the genre is dominated by shit, and it shouldn't be. Horror can be done really well when it wants to be.
