  1. Yes. Their scenes are so bittersweet that it makes me want to cry.
  2. The weight of time is all over this series, not just in the weathered faces and voices of our beloved characters, but in the sense that the status quo of the world has changed, that things were lost that can't be recovered, and the darkness of the world remains as baffling and terrible as ever. The moment where Badalamenti's "Laura" theme returns in its most prominent statement--for me, one of the most moving moments in these first four episodes--sums this all up. It's not empty fanservice, but a deep statement of loss, of the effects of entropy on communities and people.
  3. Aside from the brief Michael Cera cameo, this is magnificent.
  4. Outside of the cue for the prologue and the moments when it reprises Goldsmith, I find PROMETHEUS' music really underwhelming.
  5. Yeah, the biggest problem with this film is that it's mostly kind of boring.
  6. FWIW, Scott has indicated that the next film (tentatively titled Awakening) will be set between Prometheus and Covenant.
  7. I read Fancher's draft a very long time ago. Your sense of it matches with my memory of it.
  8. Give Deakins an Oscar already. Otherwise? Ehhhh.
