I like motion pictures because I like to be entertained. I want to give myself up to the plot, to suspend disbelief. I greatly prefer to watch a well made, well directed and well acted film.

Both of my sons feel much the same, though we differ in our appreciation of various aspects of movies. Despite this, I respect their judgement. Last week at a birthday get-together, Matt said, in essence, "Go see Prometheus. See it in 3-D if you can manage it. DO NOT talk about it with anyone who might tell you anything about the film. Try not to watch any trailers or previews. Don't read any

reviews. Just go see the movie, and we'll talk later."

Well, this is a pretty strong endorsement from him. I did take his advice, and went to see it at first opportunity, consciously avoiding any prior knowledge. All I knew was that it was some kind of science fiction film. It was certainly worth the trip and the price of admission. Please, do yourself a favor. Re-read that last paragraph and follow Matt's admonition.  See Prometheus with just as little pre-knowledge as you can manage. Do it soon, because it'll be practically impossible to avoid hearing about it for very long.

If you care for sci fi or adventure movies at all, I believe you'll like this one. If you can avoid learning about it in advance, I think you'll appreciate it even more. Please, don't write any comments that would disclose ANYTHING of the film, at least for a couple of weeks.

It was a pretty good flick. I sound like a shill for Ridley Scott, now. :) It's not a "game changer" or anything, but I thought that it was worth the price of admission, and was especially entertaining in 3D.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a
pretty penny? I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% positive.
Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

I leave a leave a response whenever I especially enjoy a post on
a website or if I have something to valuable to contribute to the discussion.

Usually it's a result of the sincerness communicated in the post I browsed. And after this post "Movie NON-Review: PROMETHEUS". I was actually excited enough to drop a thought :) I actually do have 2 questions for you if it's allright.
Is it just me or do a few of the comments come across as if
they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting at additional places, I'd like to keep up with anything new you have to post. Could you list every one of your community sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
