So, he made an animatronic erection for Your Highness? That's awesome.

Awesome animatronics. Very well done. Although I don't see this working as well for R. raccoon. I stand by my previous idea of having a very nimble midget do it in a mo-cap suit.

Fantastic visual effects.

Stupidest movie in a decade.

Beautiful and stupid.

Dangerous combo.

Nice. Prometheus gets better with repeat viewings once you've dumped your expectations.

LOL@Midnight...It's not a matter of religion. That movie was stupid. The original script kept in tact would have been better. It's not a religious thing, it's a bad script thing. The movie sucked ....Stupid but Beautiful.
