I did a post back in June of this year wherein I ranted about my supreme disappointment in the movie Prometheus. As an Alien purist, I went into the movie theater with high expectations and came out more confused than a cow on Astroturf. (No, I didn’t come up with that on my own.) If you want a recap of all the things I found lacking about the movie, go here.
I’d been debating about buying it on DVD to see if perhaps I watched it a second (or third) time, it might make more sense. And really, like I said in that previous post, the special effects were mind-blowing. Maybe even worthy of the purchase price of the Blu-Ray version.
So there I am in Wally World, ambling down the aisles of the “electronics” department like those people you love to hate because they won’t get out of your way, and I spy this:
Can you read what that shiny silver sticker says? “Questions will be answered,” it says.
My head nearly exploded on the spot. I spent $50 to see this movie in the theater with the family, popcorn included in that equation, not to mention the gas to drive from Hickville to the Big City, and dinner – sushi, which was the highpoint of the night mind you, to sit there freezing my balls off for over two hours to NOT have my questions answered! Now you want to charge me ANOTHER $30 to finally, maybe, answer those questions? Fuck off, 20th Century Fox. Seriously.
Like I needed another reason to be pissed off in Wal-Mart.
And no, I didn’t buy it, in case you’re wondering if I caved. Instead I bought candles, because obviously I could use the zen.
