Bring the hate but I genuinely do not understand the love for this character at all.

The hammiest performance I’ve seen, maybe ever - totally one note and essentially unwatchable.

Still, it’s Marvel - who since Endgame/infinity war seem intent on producing as much trash as they possibly can…

This has to be the most common yet totally ridiculous worry for many people.

You are going to sit in a dark room and stare at a screen in total silence (bar laughing et al).

Why on earth would you need other people to do this?

Social stigma!?!?!?!?

Not anymore... it was stupid back in the day but nowadays no one gives a fuck.

I went to see this at the cinema - on my own, as I have been living abroad and hand't been to the cinema in over three years.

Just go - you'll enjoy it I'm sure!

Whilst I don't rate Prometheus as highly as Alien/Aliens, I still really love it - and it was the single best experience I've ever had in a cinema bar none.

Hadn't smoked weed in about two years - decided to get some to have before going to see it - at BFI IMAX in London.

Smoked... started sweating and feeling really, really bad...

Walked into the screen room and was overcome by how big it all was - like a colosseum - made it to our seats with my buddy and was confronted with the biggest screen I'd ever seen.

Then all of a sudden I perked up and was in perfect movie-watching headspace.

The film started and I watched Shaw's gigantic head appear on the screen and then I was totally immersed in this visual masterpiece for the length of the entire runtime.

It was so epic...

I remember in the mid-late eighties I saw a fantasy film at some kid's house where they had magic rings with blue/red laser/magic but have never been able to find it since.

Weird how these things stick with you - I don't think I was even in school yet at the time.
