The Good and the Bad of Prometheus

With Prometheus dividing audiences with its muddled mythology and unanswered questions, the film has taken quite the dive at the box office on only its second weekend of release. For my full thoughts on the film, check out our podcast discussion on it or my Sunday Short Review of it, but the short version of my review is this: I loved just about everything except for the script, which is full of plot holes, plot convenience, and problematic character motivations. The special effects in the film were a particular highlight for me, and you can get a good look at just how awesome and intricate they are in these two VFX featurettes.

Thanks to Red Letter Media, I can also present the flip side of the coin, as this video effectively lays out all the problems with the movie in a single, four-minute clip. Be warned: it contains spoilers!
