Prometheus (2012)

The internet made me feel bad for liking this. I'm not sure why I let them influence me; the only movies the internet likes are the Dark Knight, all MCU movies, and the Star Wars franchise but none of the individual Star Wars movies.

Anyway, I'm supposed to hate this because, in the film, some characters in their 20s make an irrational decision under duress, which I am supposed to find unrealistic. I'd say this is about as good as the seventh movie in a franchise is going to get.



Prometheus Unbound - Percy Shelley

This painting accurately represents the pain of the boredom I felt when reading this book. I can't believe someone read Prometheus Bound and thought this was the direction the story was supposed to take.



Prometheus Bound - Aeschylus

POMETHEUS BOUND, AN ANCIENT PLAY ONE OF THE OLDEST WE HAVE, ABOUT A SIMPLE MAN WHO WAS HORRIFICALLY PUNISHED BY THE POWERS THAT BE FOR THE TERRIBLE CRIME OF TRYING TO BRING LIGHT TO THE COMMON PEOPLE. IN THE WORDS OF AESCHYLUS "NO GOOD DEED GOES UNPUNNISHED" I CANNOT TELL YOU HOW MUCH CONSOLATION I FIND IN THESE SLIM PAGES.
