    I never saw Hugo 3d. I didn't know it mattered :/

    I read the book way before it was a movie though!

    I think the reason we aren't talking about Prometheus is because it's worse the more you analyze it.

    I wouldn't have minded the last quarter of the movie if it had been, you know, scary...

    the film is clearly not meant to be self-contained, there has to be a sequel to it.
    The motivations of the Engineers, both in creating human life and then deciding to destroy it have not been answered.
    MacGuffin has concisely laid out all my problems with the film. Since they were clearly just making a two-hour trailer for the next movie, I would have appreciated the heads up.

    Yup. It was just, uh, like Alien. Even the ripoff of Ripley's last words from Alien -- I didn't perceive it as a homage, it just came off as cheesy.

    I watched Hugo in 2d and couldn't stand it. What did I miss?

    Yeah...

    Speaking of which: Has anybody heard about the sequel release in the fall?
    Rumor has it Scott shot them back-to-back and kept it under wraps.

    oh? that seems rather soon but I would easily get suckered into it simply because I love seeing other planets imagined by others.
