Singleton + Writer + Book Lover + Moviegoer = Screen Spinster

Welcome to the loneliest blog on the web. I have no words of wisdom to espouse. (why does espouse sound so much like spouse? Is that word trying to rub it into my spinster brain?) Anyway, I don't own a cat. Never will. I don't cook, nor do I sew or knit, but I do spin a yarn (tale) from time to time. I have no domestic talents, I am not a domestic engineer/goddess, nor do I want to be. I'll sometimes post my views on scripts, (mine & yours or theirs) movies, television shows and maybe theatre, along with my own musings usually in the style of a poem. So pull up a rocking chair, sit back as your cherry pie bakes and stay a while if you like.

Movies: Prometheus

Where do we come from? Who made humankind? Did life begin on earth? Or is life somewhere out there waiting for us?

Prometheus is a prequel of sorts to the Alien franchise. It's a lot more sci-fi than horror. It's slow and methodical. It takes its time to build a mystery that leads to some answers. Not all answers, but enough to tie up this plot (strong feeling that there will be a sequel to the prequel that isn't Aliens).

The movie's exposition was a bit much at times. The action and regular dialogue could be unclear at times, which would then be followed by a long winded explanation of things that just happened. I expected it to be a bit smarter and clear in its story, but it's still worth seeing, especially if you're a science fiction fan or Alien fan.
