Cool Videos: Everything wrong with Prometheus in under 4 minutes

01.03.2013

Here we are back again with a new CinemaSins video showing us everything wrong with the latest blockbusters. This time the victim is Ridley Scott's PROMETHEUS. Now, I liked PROMETHEUS quite a bit but I am still able to recognize the plot inconsistencies and issues with the film while still enjoying it overall. Plus, these CinemaSins clips are not meant to be taken at face value. Just take a step back and laugh along with it.

Still there? If you are, it is either because you are scrolling down to post a talkback. On your way, let me ask you a quick question: was PROMETHEUS really that bad of a movie? So far, none of the CinemaSins spoofs have been for bad movies but they do illustrate that you can make fun of a film without being a troll.

I am definitely hoping for a sequel to PROMETHEUS that will be as good or better than the first movie. I think Ridley Scott proved there is still an interest in this type of film and I hope he stays as director or at least producer for the promised follow-up.

Honest Trailers- Promethues Version

I can't stress how much I prefer Honest Trailers over these. Just feels that they put so much more effort into the editing and jokes.

Joblo.com is my definitive source for all movie related news

But the constant posting of these videos makes me feel we just don't have the same sense of humor anymore.

Prometheus' was shit the same way Blade Runner was shit. They're both ridiculous movies with huge plot holes and two-dimensional characters where very little is resolved or even understood by the time the credits roll. Dammit if they don't look amazing though.

Prometheus was one of the best experiences I had in a cinema last year and I love it unabashedly, even though I'm fully aware of the script's failings. I don't agree with the theory of the real problem being with the audience being too critical these days, as two comments below posited. If the internet existed when Back to the Future came out, you can be sure people would have been bringing up problems with the film. No, the real problem is that people who spend too much time on the internet

If the internet existed when Back to the Future came out, you can be sure people would have been bringing up problems with the film. No, the real problem is that people who spend too much time on the internet have become extremely cynical, so their default setting is either: "This is shit until proven otherwise," or "It's either amazing or shit, I see no middle ground," or (if a film doesn't impress) "Why can't everyone see how bad the film was? I need to make everyone hate the film as much as I did." I wouldn't spend too much time worrying about what other people on the internet think about a certain movie. If you talk to people in the real world you'll find that way more people share your feelings, or at least a way more even-tempered discussion.

P.S. Don't get me wrong, I love movie websites and I love having discussions about films online, it's just that there's inevitably more hate than love being thrown around.

See these would actually be funny if it was actual mistakes similar to the web page movie mistakes. Instead these are just usual nitpicking & just trying to hate on so called bad movies. HOw can you think it's funny when you open with the only beautiful looking film i wanna punch in the face? What are you 10 years old? SO yeah seriously these are not funny, but just plain lame & trying too hard.

At least I laughed this time...

...sort of. I realize that these are supposed to be funny and no one is bashing anything. However this is the fourth one and it was the first to make me chuckle but only once or twice. I get it; they are not serious but I don't find them particularly funny either. Everyone gets an opinion though, right?

As much as I love Ridley, it was the first MovieSins video I had to agree with.

Well the beginning was funny. I was laughing quite a bit, but then it got lame as it went on. .....I still love Prometheus.

This is supposed to be funny... Don't take it seriously.

I really enjoyed the movie and these "everything wrong with..." shorts are kind of fun. The only one I actually agreed with so far was the amazing spiderman one, I just did not like that movie and it pointed out some of the best reasons why. But even for movies like the Avengers, I enjoyed it and watching the EWW video for it was funny because it puts a lot of stuff into perspective. It doesn't diminish the film in any way, it kind of lampoons it.

I suppose that since these guys are so good at pinpointing everything wrong with a movie...then they should be able to create the most perfect movie ever seen. I can't wait for it...

Are you on pain meds or something? Do you really think this is supposed to be anything but a joke? How can you have so few brain cells that you don't realize its not meant to be serious?

it takes a special kind of stupidity to think the ability to identify flaws in a movie equates to having the creative ability to make a good movie.

I suppose you also believe that if someone can tell how shitty of a quarterback Mark Sanchez is it means they must be able to play QB in the NFL.

This is for fun. Don't take it seriously. Enjoying these Every Thing Wrong videos or the actually movie they're taking jabs at, aren't mutually exclusive. Take a deep breath and relax. You're allowed to like both.

So much animosity over nothing.

We've become too critical

This movie had major flaws, as did the Dark Knight Rises and the Hobbit and the Amazing Spider-Man. However, a lot of older movies considered classics did as well. Have we just become too critical? Are we unable to turn off our brains and just enjoy the ride anymore. I watched Back to the Future the other night. One of my favorite movies of all time, but that movie is riddled with 'huh?' moments. However we ignore them. Prometheus had issues that should have been corrected in the script

However, I offer that the bigger problem is with us.

The problem with CinemaSins is that they try to be funny like referencing The Lion king, yet they are not aware that the English use two fingers to flip you off. You can't afford to be this ignorant when you try to be clever.
