@Forbes Review: ‘Prometheus’ is a Visually Stunning Epic Failure
Do you remember the first time you saw Ridley Scott’s 1979 sci-horror classic, Alien? Do you remember the dark, derelict alien spacecraft on planet LV-426? Do you remember fearing for the rag-tag cast of humans who ventured inside, wondering what they would find? Do you remember the large, fossilized, vaguely humanoid creature sitting in a pilot’s seat in the middle of the ship, its ribs exploded from its chest, and wondering just what in the hell that thing was?
