Saw this last night on Blu-ray. Count me in the group that loves Alien and thought this was a half-baked story that simply doesn't fare well when compared to the original. Now by no means is Prometheus a terrible film, even with all its shortcomings. But Alien rightly occupies a hallowed place in sci-fi/horror, so the expectations for this film were very high.
Let's get this part out of the way up front: The movie's pacing and character development were very poor, which is surprising because that's generally one of Scott's strengths
After reading what other people had to say about Sons of Anarchy in this thread, I decided to give the series a try. I can report I'm now caught up after picking up the set on DVD and it's been a fun, if somewhat bizarre, ride.

Remember City 17? Of course you do. But this time it has zombies. You know, the walking dead that eat you and make a nasty mess when you shoot 'em in the head with a shotgun? Yes, these crazy guys have made a Left 4 Dead 2 add-on based on the classic episode from Half-Life 2. Check it out here.
Supreme Commander 2 patched. The latest patch fixes some AI issues and addresses some other annoying issues. Of course,
Just returned from a trip to the colony on LV426 and it seems that Radbade brought back something interesting. Quarantine procedures apparently failed, which just goes to show that you can never predict what the future may hold.
It seems I'll have to make some changes around here to make arrangements for this little guest.
