It's pretty clear that the writer has an agenda to push. She makes a strong case pointing out the costs associated with disposable diapers but she overlooks the true costs of cloth diapers. The cotton doesn't just magically appear, refined, woven and ready to go in a diaper bag. There's resources used to grow, harvest, refine and weave the fibers. There's resources used to deliver the final product to consumers. With the end users, resources are used to clean and reuse the diapers, and to treat the sewage. Every one of these issues is unaddressed by the writer. If she really wants consumers to make the decision to use cloth diapers, she should present ALL of the facts and educate us instead of shaming us. Without an objective and all inclusive review of all the stats, this is just propaganda. I'm a new parent and I would truly appreciate it if someone could present a good case for taking on all the extra work and inconvenience that comes with cloth diapers. This didn't do it.
As someone who seems to be a connoisseur of cinema, I just can't understand your glowing review of this film. I think there might be two different movies named Prometheus released simultaneously and I must have seen the wrong one. I'm a huge fan of the original Alien movie but I'm definitely not a fan-boy and it doesn't require a rabid loyalty to the original movie to find immense disappointment in Prometheus. This movie fails on some very basic levels. The characters are hollow (most of them serve absolutely no purpose in advancing the story), the dialog is shallow (especially given such a grand premise for the storyline) and the entire film is riddled with plot holes. Ridley Scott has said he deliberately left some questions unanswered in order to enhance the sense of mystery, but the kind of questions I pondered while watching Prometheus were; 'Why did the director/writers do that?', or 'What's the point?" The only thing this movie has going for it are the visuals, but that's just lacquer on a turd. If I didn't know better, I would swear this is a Michael Bay film.
