Now don’t get me wrong, I actually liked Prometheus for what it did right but I didn’t love it which is what I was really hoping would be my reaction. That being said the script for this movie was a bit of a haphazard mess that left me scratching my head in wonderment in a decidedly bad way much like the gents in the video from Red Letter Media.

It’s a 100% paper recreation of the Prometheus trailer!!!! How cool is that?
The time it must have taken to make this just boggles my mind but I am glad they did it.
I have no clue what it is about exactly…is it a prequel to the Alien movies? Is it going to be totally unconnected from the alien franchise? Will it explain who or what that giant astronaut was at the beginning of the original Alien? I don’t know and really don’t care because I have never been this excited for a movie that is a total mystery to me as far as plot goes.
