Prometheus' worst offense is that it buried Del Toro's At the Mountains of Madness

It was certainly flawed (especially some of the character motivations, plot holes and rhythm), but I still think about that damn movie today, like 3-4 months after I saw it

Meh, I still don't buy it.



Biggest problem with the movie aside from the terrible introductory scene is that it's just...not even a cool thing to try to figure out, like a boring puzzle. There's just so little that makes sense in the movie that by the end I didn't give a shit what the engineers wanted to do, 0 connection with any of the characters (even though this should've been the easiest thing to do...given their plot), and worst of all, terrible fucking aliens. Design of the creatures was just awful.

those 20 minutes of analysis (as well as the prometheus thread in the entertainment subforum) only lead to the conclusion that unfortunately there are indeed people for whom such films should continue to be made.

All I could think about when I saw Prometheus was that ancient explanatory myth popularized by Stephen Hawking, the one about the earth sitting on turtle sitting on another turtle, etc., all the way down to the bottom of the universe. Where did human life come from? Oh...right. From another human who flew to Earth. facepalm.gif

Here's a Ted Hughes movie in the meantime. (no images the first minute).

Ted Hughes. inlove.gif I'm slowly trying to memorize his Selected, so tasty and so sweet.

Is that silent film (Cthulhu something) any good ? It's always mentioned as one of the best Lovecraft adaptation but ...

I have a couple short story collections. The supernatural/horror/sci-fi stuff, especially toward the end of his life is the best, and what he's most famous for.

Good stories:
"The Whisperer in Darkness"
"The Dunwich Horror"
"The Colour Out of Space" (this is probably my favorite)
"The Haunter of the Dark"
"Dagon"
"The Rats in the Walls"
"The Call of Cthulhu" (of course)

Good novellas:
The Shadow Over Innsmouth
At the Mountains of Madness
The Shadow Out of Time

EDIT: I should also mention that most of the work of Lovecraft's descendants (e.g. those working on the Cthulhu mythos) is not generally very good. August Derleth just wasn't crazy enough, to be honest, but his "The Lamp of Alhazred" is actually quite good.

God I loved HPL when I was in highschool, he created such a unique and vibrant world. When I first read about Miskatonic U I really wanted to go there, then I found out it was fake frown.gif
