I went with my son, Evan, to see the new Ridley Scott film, “Prometheus,” yesterday. This movie marks the return of the director to the science fiction genre. Visually, Scott expands upon the worlds he successfully created in the Alien movies. This film is visually beautiful and menacing. At the risk of unintentionally giving the reader any spoilers, I will close with a recommendation that the lovers of science fiction go see the movie with the notion that this film is a less intense one when compared to the Alien films.
