For me the real question, is this a movie that works on its own terms?
For me thats the ultimate arbiter. I've never felt that Alien
needed a prequel. It's a self-contained story that works very well on its own.
Now if Prometheus
has some connection to Alien
then fine. But ultimately I'm interested in seeing a good space adventure. From what I've seen so far this might have the makings of a good time at the movies. How enjoyable it'll be remains to be seen, but I'm interested in seeing on the big screen.
