Prometheus SPOILER Thread
 

 
Title says it all, if you haven't seen it yet gtfo and don't come ack until you see it.


















With that said, I thought the movie was good. Not great not a classic but just good, and Ridley Scott had sh-t all to do with it not being great or a masterpiece, its all in the script. Everybody saying it asked more question than it answered are right. The only problem is that the questions are fundamental to understanding a very key plot point that ties this to the Alien franchise.

Wtf did that thing in Shaw get mutated from and why does that thing and a Engineer create a Xenomorph? I mean the earthworms mutated into those big worms, but wtf was the octopus thing(a sperm?)

Another thing was the weird a.ss relationship between Vickers and Weylund. Somebody said that she said he was her dad but at the same time the thing with the hand made me think she was a fu-k buddy rather than his daughter. Also Vickers death was complete a.ss. Shaw does the greatest barrel roll ever while Vickers stupidly just kept running in a straight line.

Didn't really have a problem with the dialogue. It was just some glaring flaws in the logic behind the film. Ridley had no wrong doing in this, he directed that script about as well as anybody could. Its a beautiful movie to look at and the use of 3D was great.

I'd love to know who was responsible for what in the script because its got some GREAT scenes in it during the first hour 30 but it just gets real sloppy when they go into the temple for a second time.


So whats BX feeling on this?

Posted this in the other thread but oh well -

This movie was dope as hell. The questions posed and leaving things to your own interpretation


- Loved how the organism/weapon changed with each interaction with another life form
- Worms bonding with it and turning into those reptile things once it leaked everywhere
- The acid blood was cool to see again for nostalgia
- Liked how she thought she k!lled that thing the machine took out of her but it was still alive at the end and still mutating/changing/growing.
- It basically became a giant version, maybe first iteration, of the face huggers from the alien movies since it impregnated the Engineer and out came the first iteration, or similar form, of the Xenomorph/Alien.
- It seems like if you ingest the organism/weapon it k!lls you from inside. But if it interacts with you outside your body it mutates you like it did to Fifield
- I'm still wondering what happened to all those aliens that hatched out of all those Engineers chests that Sean Harris/Fifield (dude with the mohawk and tattoo on his head) and the biology guy found
- Wonder why they had that original Alien hanging up in that room
- Fassbender saying there's more ships

8.5/9 out of 10

Interview with Ridley Scott about what the weapon/liquid is/does (pretty much what I thought)-


The black liquid in the "weapons" the Engineers have created seems to act in vastly different ways dependent on who it comes into contact with. Was this contrast purposeful?

[RS] No, not necessarily. That person at the beginning, if we are created by gods or monsters – and there’s no gods, it’d be singular, probably, because every religion today – which creates more problems for us today in the entire global system than any other single thing – they’re all actually worshiping one dude, really. I don’t give a damn whether it’s muslim or you name it: in theory, it's one person. I believe that we were pre-visited. It's ridiculous to think otherwise.

I don’t know whether it was Updike who said it, but there's a great quote: "We’ve been here four billion years, what happened? Why did it take so long? Nothing happened until about 750,000 years in." In four billion years that is a blink. There’s two rules of thought. You’re either going to believe in the fact that we’re here by genetic luck entirely, so from day one where you have atomic storms – inconceivable storms that will go on in this nucleus, in which the dirt bowl will find some reason to start growth on everything. Was that created? That may have been accidental, because I think there are many of those out there.

But then the idea that, "Is there a higher force in the universe?" comes the question, "Is it god, or are there superior beings out there?" You stand and look at the stars at night in the galaxy out there, it’s entirely ridiculous to believe that we are it. You mean this is it? We’re sitting in this room, I’ve got this f*cking cappuccino, and up there there’s no one else? I don’t think so.

[DL] This is referred to as the “F*cking Cappuccino” theory of astrophysics.

[RS] I’ve had nine very high-end scientists sitting at a table, ranging from NASA astrophysicists, I don’t know what you call a serious mathematician, but a serious mathematician at a scientific level. And I’ve said, first question, “Who believes in god?” And it’s a bit like looking at a bunch of nine kids and saying, “Who masturbates?” There’s a total silence.

[DL] Then you get arrested.

[RS] And one guy says, "I believe." It’s a weird problem. So I say, “You're a believer in distilled facts to get you through your day, because you're in science, but on the side you believe in this guy up there, standing on a cloud with a beard, who actually is your god, which is entirely mystical. So you have a split brain in intention.” And he said “Yep.”

So I said, when you meet your wall, having a bad day or a bad month, and you’ve been working on an equation for 18 months, you can’t get through whatever that equation is, what do you think? Are you thinking, “This son of a b*tch is really clever, and I can’t break through the barrier,” do you think of god then? He said, “Yeah, in simplistic terms, yes.” So when you start there, that was, as far as we’re concerned, the right to then start doing fiction, doing movie entertainment, to step out and say, “Were we created or was it god?”

And therefore there’s two questions in the film: the guy at the beginning is simply donating himself – no stranger than the Aztecs or Incas would choose some poor bugger, at the beginning saying, “Right, you’re it, in the year you get all the girls you want, all the food you want, blah blah, and at the end of the year we’re going to take your heart, take it out, squeeze it, and we’re going to get jolly good crops and good weather next year.” It’s no more than that, he’s into a form of donation, except his DNA is so powerful, each molecule is like a timebomb.

We only set our standards by what we know here, which makes us essentially naive. We can’t conceive of galloping DNA – I release that on the desk and in a second I’ve got a cotton-wool ball going black. We can’t conceive that because it’s not in your frame of experience. So you’ve got to take your brain, put it on the side, and when you enter the movie just let yourself breathe.

[DL] I think another version of the question could be interpreted as, “What does the black goo do?”

[RS] Three things! Cleans your teeth…

[DL] Exactly. And I think that one of the things that I love about Ridley’s movies, and have loved long before I worked with him, is 30-some odd years after Blade Runner we’re all still talking about whether or not Deckard is a replicant. So there’s a speculative part of it – the question becomes, “What does the black goo do?” That is the question that you’re supposed to be asking coming out of this movie.

The movie demonstrates what it does in certain circumstances. So, here’s what it does if it gets on worms; here’s what it does if it gets on your face; here’s what it does if someone just puts a little bit of it in your drink. Now we see that that lots of this is headed to Earth. Now, you used the word “weapon” – you’re extrapolating that based on the theory Janek [Idris Elba] has, because it looks like a payload to him; all these ships are loaded with this stuff, and they’re headed for Earth. The intent has to be to wipe us out, or is it to evolve us, or is it for something else?

These are all hopefully questions and points of debate – frustrating for some – but ultimately the kind of science fiction. Why the two movies that Ridley did decades ago are still being discussed is this idea that when you walk out of the cinema that you have to go into a community and start to discuss. “Well, wait a minute, this is what I think happened.” And you’re hopefully mirroring the conversation that the characters are having in the movie, and more importantly this is why Shaw says what she says at the end of the movie. Which is, “I’m not going back to Earth and calling it a day, I need to know a little bit more about what’s happening here.”

Usually prequels, or movies that precede the original, close down the universe – so now we know everything we needed to know about Anakin Skywaker. We wanted Prometheus to open up the universe, so it’s not a prequel at all. It has two children, one of those children grows up to be Alien, and the other child is hopefully growing up in this other direction and, god willing, will grow up into an entirely different line of films.


[RS] And by the way, that black stuff is terrific Viagra.

[DL] Toothpaste, now Viagra.

[RS] You have a meltdown next morning.

Cheap nostalgia had nothing to do with plot even though I clapped during the scene at first?
They could've done without it sure but when you saw the giant face hugger latch onto the Engineer you knew what was gonna happen. You just wondered whether they'd show it or not. Not sure whats got your v*gina all bothered by it
