Upon my first viewing of Prometheus, I was underwhelmed. I expected an incredible prequel to Alien that would contain some of the amazing elements that made the film so enjoyable to me. But as the weeks passed I could not get the movie out of my mind, there was a lot that I felt I needed to discover. So I re-watched it, once, and then twice, and so on. I came to appreciate so many things in this film, all of which I know will make it a cult classic.
I’ve heard a lot of complaints about Interstellar. Everything from “ It takes forever to get to the “action”” to the minuscule details of an engineer having to explain things to another engineer, as well as my own complaint of the use of “love” as the main drive for many characters rather than the survival of the whole species. However, the film has a lot more wonderful things going for it than all the nitpick we, as humans, like to do.
