Quentin Tarantino gives his verdict on Prometheus

Quentin Tarantino is Hollywood’s proudest geek, so it’s probably not surprising to learn that he has plenty of opinions to share about 2012’s most divisive sci-fi movie, Prometheus .

Speaking during an appearance on a US chat-show, Tarantino started off by praising certain elements of Scott’s film before turning to some of its glaring flaws.

“On one hand, it was actually kind of cool to see a big deal, serious science-fiction epic by a director like Ridley Scott,” began Tarantino. “Overall the experience was pretty cool having seen it.”

“But there was also a lot of dumb stuff in it," continued the director. "When it got to the point where they're on another planet and then a space cobra literally shows up, opens up its hood and the guy who's in charge of alien creatures goes, 'Hey, little fella! How ya doin?' I was like, ‘uhhhhh.... It's a space cobra!’”

A sentiment we can all share a degree of sympathy with. In the meantime, QT’s latest, Django Unchained , opens in the UK on 18 January 2012.
