The Cast of Cthulhu: Prometheus
Filmmaker, podcaster, musician, and all around good guy, Tim Buel, joins to talk Prometheus, the film that actually first brought Jim and James together so many years ago.
The boys all recount what their first impressions (sober or otherwise) were when seeing Ridley Scott’s much-anticipated film in 2012 and how their opinions have changed — or, in Jim’s case, have remained pretty much the same. It’s a hung jury when it comes to the verdict about whether this is a great or disappointing installment in the Alien franchise, but it’s a great conversation about a film that everyone can agree swung for the fences.
To tune in to the cool horror shorts that Tim is making online, check him out on Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube.

I preferred Alien: Covenant. Double the Fassbender, less (a relative statement) stupidity that annoyed me, more a focus on being a horror movie where xenomorphs are after people than explaining the mythology.
