So, I just recently saw the new movie Prometheus – it was pretty good, visually appealing if nothing else. That’s not really newsworthy. But what I found out is that this movie is the prequel to the Alien series. I had absolutely idea until the credits began to roll.
I did the same thing a few years back with the movie Across the Universe. I didn’t know – I had no clue – that it featured songs by The Beatles; I only put the pieces together once Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds started playing.
Of course, I never listen to The Beatles and I’ve never seen the Alien movies. I don’t think that quite gets me off the hook though, huh?
