In Case You Want to Know What Quentin Tarantino Thought of Prometheus…

That divisive movie of 2012 that insists on permeating cinephile blogs – Prometheus – isn’t prepared to go away just yet.

No doubt you have your thoughts on Ridley Scott’s Alien prequel and no doubt your friends, family, and hell, family pet, have their own opinion on Prometheus, too.  But what did Quentin Tarantino, king cinephile, himself think?

The Django Unchained director hit Craig Ferguson and expressed his opinion.  Perhaps his thoughts will make you feel better about your own…or perhaps can simply stand steadfast by your own opinion and not give a crap about what Tarantino thinks.  Regardless, head inside for more.

“I saw Prometheus.  I loved it and I was disappointed at the same time. On one hand I was a little disappointed about it.  On the other hand, it was actually kind of cool to see such a big deal, serious, science fiction epic by a director like Ridley Scott.  There were parts of it I actually did like and over-all the experience was really cool having been in it.  There was also a lot of dumb stuff in it, though.”

Here’s the video if you’d like to see the conversation.  Prometheus talk begins around 4:48.

    Prometheus sucked


    who the hell cares what he thinks
    I just had a big crap, what does he think about that?

  • Mick Aldighty

    Yeah Prometheus blew goat balls.

    • Queefer Sutherland

      I was actually struck in the face by a goat ball while watching the movie. I wondered where that came from, and now I know. I should have figured that out.

    Really don’t care re: what Tarentino thinks….Ridley Scott, however hit it out of the ball park!

  • Sig Ruman

    over-all the experience was really cool – the man is a genius [and that would make Hitchcock, what? – the Futon]

    Prometheus was great. Some people didn’t like it, I understand, but most of those people have a hundred questions about the movie as well, which ultimately negates their opinion. A film being over your head doesn’t mean it’s a bad movie. It just means the movie isn’t for you.

    • Queefer Sutherland

      LOLOLOLOLOLOL. No, sorry, this movie was SO stupid it went UNDER my head.

    • Dax75

      Sorry pal, the movie sucked… Trying to act like you’re more evolved or have a higher IQ as your reason for understanding and liking it… LOL Thats a fail also. It just proves that it doesn’t take much to entertain you.

      • Sully

        Everything you said is dumb. Trying coming into an adult conversation prepared next time. Okay, sport?

      Prometheus looked gorgeous (as most Ridley Scott movies do) though story-wise it was a bit of a mess. That was because it was meant to be an Alien movie, and Scott didn’t want to make another so Damon Lindelof removed most references to the xenomorph (read the screenplay. It’s easy enough to find online), which was why the Alien-related details he left in (the mural in the Engineer’s base, the proto-Alien at the end, didn’t really make much sense.

      It didn’t go over anyone’s head. It missed them by a good 15 feet or so. You’re entitled to your opinion, but the plot was silly and incoherent. Sometimes this is forgivable, but not when the movie tries to be clever and intellectual.

      • Sully

        It really didn’t feel like it was trying to be clever or intellectual. No more than the original film at least. It was pretty straight forward, and incredibly easy to follow.

  • Queefer Sutherland

    The movie was gorgeous, the story was sophomoric and tailored for idiots.

    • 琴の火鉢

      I can get on board with this sentiment. Let’s be honest- the film had huge plot holes and discontinuous scenes. But it certainly was eye candy. Ridley appears to either have lost it a bit or handed the project over to first year film students.

      • Queefer Sutherland

        Yes. I find it watchable because of the visuals, but the story makes me cringe. I give it a 10 for the FX and cinematography, a zero for the story. Too bad. It was a movie that promised to be a 10, yet wound up a 5. That sucks.

    This was a catastrophe for the alien franchise that Ridley Scott created almost 4 decades ago. The first movie was a timeless piece, that could be watched by a young audience as though it were filmed in 2014. The prequel reminds me of George Lucas’s failed attempt at more star wars episodes. Dated and pathetic.
