"Boring" is not a valid argument, it only says what your mood was while watching.

What you find boring others can find riveting and vice versa.

Some people are immensely bored by a movie like Prometheus, some of them think it's pure kino.

Its obviously Aliens, Alien is an aesthetically beautiful but empty film, while Aliens managed to flesh out its themes a lot better and is more intelligent in doing so.

I think David Cronenberg summed up Alien best:

>“It has no metaphysics, no philosophy,” he told Fangoria in 1979. “The creature winds up as a man in a crocodile suit who chases a bunch of people around a room. I think that my own films do a lot more in touching a deep seated nerve, more than the simple reaction that you don’t want a crocodile to eat you. Alien was just a $300,000 B-movie with a $10 million budget.”

Really have to disagree with Cronenberg there. The movie exemplifies Lovecraftian horror; man alone before the uncaring vastness of space (if "space" would really exist, but that is another discussion). Should have left out the android stuff, though.

Give me absolutely ONE reason why 'cinematography' is anything more complicated than keeping the subjects in frame and blocking them thematically. For all the intellectual bullshit talk people throw around, its painfully simple, and unless you are specifically trying to invoke paranoia amd mystery there is no reason to take it to Kubrick's level. Kubrick was great but his brand of visual occultism and symbolism is not 'cinematography' at large.

Explains why you are this much of a pleb.

>IT'S GAME OVER MAN! GAME OVER!!

I literally know/knew 3 faggots from high school and half a dozen from college that were Aliens fags. They'd quote the movie, it was one of those few movies they obsessed over. Literally every single one of those people would also use, and talk about in real world conversation, reddit. It's a quintessential reddit movie. Unlike other reddit movies like Back to the Future it can't even be separated from it's reddit fanbase because the movie itself is just a meme 80s action movie. The "practical effects" special effects are good but that's it. It doesn't have a lasting impact because it doesn't build atmosphere and it's just a compilation of 80's action clichés. Instead of being an iconic second episode to an Alien trilogy it set the series down the path of directors and writers doing whatever the fuck they wanted with each follow-up. Bishop was the only takeaway from that film and he unironically only had a lasting impact because of Alien 3 since the people involved in that film actually aspired to make an impactful film and not a cheap cashgrab. He was just another cliché character in Aliens.

Funnily enough those guys from high school and college never talked about Alien. I guess it didn't have the quotable lines or I guess it wasn't generic 'DUDE 80's' enough for them to care. Still, I bet if Alien came out in 1986 instead of 1979, even if it was the exact same film, it would have a bigger reputation with redditors just because of the number attached to it's name.

I love Alien as a horror movie, and I love Aliens as an action/horror movie.

Blaming Aliens for being the downfall of the franchise is retarded though.

Aliens expanded the lore of the entire franchise more than any other film did.

Without the second movie 90% of the shit that comes to mind when you think about the franchise wouldn't even be in your head.

The blame falls squarely on 3 and how it was perceived by audiences.

They went back to the original sort of format and the film flopped, so they thought the best solution was to go back to a more outright action film.

But it's not Aliens fault that resurrection was a total camp fest.

If 3 was more compelling they wouldn't stick so fiercely to the format that worked so well and just crank out dumb action films with copy paste character motivations and personalities.

No, it can't and that's the point. Prometheus, much like the Star Wars prequels Alien 3 and some other big films while following the forms of big budget Kikewood flicks managed to somehow imbue into them qualities that were authentic and imprinted legit intelligent motifs and themes.

Prometheus makes references to the western canon, the Greeks specifically, and then Covenant Wagner and if you are slightly above brainlet you will notice them, but if you add some dozen more IQ points then the viewer will begin to notice how things come together to become more than the sum of its parts. Prometheus has things to say and it is poetic in a sense. It's more dense than many pretentious so called art films.

Excuse my Tarkovsky posting "friend". I can defend Prometheus merely as a scifi film, a horror film, a blockbuster, a ridley scott film, what have you.

Noomi Rapace is good in it and it's directed very well with good aesthetics for almost the entirety. It's paced fairly well, has a good ost like alien covenant, and lovecraftian. There are tense and creepy moments inside the Prometheus ship, and inside the cave/structure they find. Ridley Scott just clicks with scifi (that isn't the martian), it's filmed with a nice air to it and filmed like a horror film for the second half.

It's no good being reasonable on /tv/, Zachy-chan. Exaggerating your opinion and using hyperbole is half the fun. Prometheus is either the worst movie ever made or a heaven sent piece of artistic genius rivalling the great works.

It also works as a negotiation tactic half the time, kind of scattershot, but when it works it works. So maybe Prometheus isn't high art but maybe it's a good horror film that stands out as very good in the genre? Maybe Alien 3 isn't a theological work but its use of Christian themes does give it a very unique flavour, doesn't it?

Furthermore you get to enrage the tards straight off reddit who actually does think the film is bad because they couldn't figure basic shit out and the film didn't entirely spell everything out completely.

 No.1856578

>>1856561

>Where was the David equivalent

The ins and outs of David's character aren't important in Prometheus. Covenant focuses on David's person, but taking Prometheus as its own story David's only significance is that he's an android, which is just part of the shoehorn into the Aliens franchise.

>Weyland

Again, just part of the shoehorn.

>Shaw

Literally anyone because she's a very generic, personalityless character.

>some of the premise is similar

Nigga the plot is almost a 1-for-1 ripoff. Move the mountains from Antarctica to space and move the encounter with the creator race from near the beginning of the story to near the end and and there is no substantial difference.

Also Alien is the best film since it deemphazises the character of Ripley the most. Aliens was a film in celebration of the Strong Female Protagonist and as such was cucked as hell. Alien 3 and Ressurection make Ripley into a mythological being. AvP film was fun but stupid. Never watched the sequel. Prometheus was visually stunning but storywise I found it boring. Never watched Covenent but the idea that the faggot robot ended Engineer civilization is offensive until you see the hidden subtext that the faggot robot represents the kikes then it becomes volkino
