I always arrive at reading a Walter Chaw with my eyeballs peering through my fingers. And, man, you didn't disappoint here. Thanks for always keeping it real, Walter. I have rarely disagreed with your criticisms (just minor quibbles ;) ) You are one of the very few (you mostly) critics I read for the meaning (obvious and subtextual) and cultural relevance of a movie. I am going to see Prometheus tomorrow, because I do like looking at shiny objects sometimes. lol :)

One more film about the inherent goodness of faith? Reeeaaallyyy? America continues to be the number 1 exporter of banality, I see. Cheers for saving me the price of admission, Mr. Chaw, keep up the great work.

Justin B-H

Hmmm, Roger Ebert's review is also spoiler-heavy but he's not actually trying to warn you away from seeing the film. Don't think spoilers a re really a problem in an overwhelmingly negative review....

Mike

Walter speaks the truth. Praise him.

Prometheus is an Alien abortion delivered full-term but stillborn. It's Star Trek V with a bigger budget and less entertainment.

Drat!
What's that leave, BRAVE and BATMAN'S RISING TUMESCENCE vs STEELY DAN??
At least ALIEN is still the best movie ever made.

Chris

You're not wrong, Walter, you're just an asshole.

Raoul

Chaw's rants against Christianity are playing to diminishing returns in his reviews. This was too long, purposefully full spoilers/details and written by a guy who's so pissed off about the way of things. His crankiness is trampling on his skill as a critic.

Ricky Bobby

God didn't like the ending of "Lost" either.

Cryptosicko

Aw, crap.
