Prometheus in Fifteen Minutes.

I would put up a sample quote, but with this movie... I'm not sure I can.

If you haven't seen the movie and want to, feel free to save the Fifteen Minutes for later. It'll keep. I'd rather people say they waited to read it than "Now I don't have to see the movie at all!" It's always a smidge funnier when you realize how little I was making up. On the other hand, it ought to be comprehensible if you don't.

(Yeah, the "alien language" line is actually a simple letter replacement; it can, in theory, be translated. If no one can, well--you get someone to officially reveal what David said in the movie which will never happen, and we'll talk. Seriously, I want to know.)

(On the other hand, do you want to know? Is there any translation that would possibly satisfy you? Seriously, it's not that great.)

I don't mind saying I'm working on something for The Avengers (have been struggling with it for more than two weeks, now, actually, since I saw it a second time), because there's too much of it done to give up anyway. It doesn't have the wonderful footholds of absurdity that Prometheus does, so it's harder.

Also, people seem to be having trouble getting LJ to work. I didn't do it.

After some lingering Prometheus questions drove me to link-hop looking for answers I happened to stumble upon your Prometheus in 15mins article.
Let me just some it up as succinctly as possible: Awesome. If only Pulitzers were awarded for blogs...

Hey Cleo, you're in the "Washington Post"! Although they didn't give your name or URL, drat them. But "Prometheus in 15 Minutes" was mentioned in an article about the popularity of recaps. Can only find the print version so far, but if it turns up online, I'll send a link.

I actually got sent the online version as well--doesn't mention me by name there either, but it does link to the thing itself, which was nice.

I saw it last night, and I will admit that it was at least in part because I wanted to read your m15m. (Which, as always, was totally worth waiting for.)

I just have to say, there are clearly two things that nobody on that crew had ever had anyone say to them in their entire lives, ever:

"I dunno, do you think it might be, y'know, dangerous?"


"DON'T TOUCH THAT! OMG what is wrong with you?"
