Fresh off a box office slaying to the tune of over 80 million dollars with Django Unchained, Tarantino weighed in on Scott's sci-fi prequel on The Late Show With Craig Ferguson. Also, yes, it was totally a prequel. I don't care how Ridley attempted to spin it.
On one hand... it was actually kind of cool to see a big deal, serious science-fiction epic by a director like Ridley Scott. But there was also a lot of dumb stuff in it. 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!
Me personally? I called it a vagina-snake.
Tarantino hasn't tackled science fiction yet, but as a writer and director with a laundry list of exceptional films and accolades under his belt, Quentin's opinion certainly isn't worthless when it comes to judging the narrative elements of other movies. In addition to shoving Prometheus around a bit, Tarantino also chatted about Django Unchained, Inglourious Basterds, and which director talked him out of turning the latter into a miniseries.

So, what do you say? Is Quentin right, or do you think he's out of line? You know what to do. Comment section. Type stuff. Go.
