Film is fresh in my head after going 2 see it earlier today (love morning movies), but my 1st thoughts are this film was either really underwhelming or very methodical. I still need time for it to soak in.

As I've documented here, every major sci-fi franchise is based on the theory, including this summer's entry in the Alien series, Prometheus. Alex Jones recently unleashed a rant on how Prometheus was part of some eugenics program or something, but the Dominionist puppet strings are showing more and more every time that guy opens his mouth.

Movies.com: You throw religion and spirituality into the equation for Prometheus, though, and it almost acts as a hand grenade. We had heard it was scripted that the Engineers were targeting our planet for destruction because we had crucified one of their representatives, and that Jesus Christ might have been an alien. Was that ever considered?

RS: We definitely did, and then we thought it was a little too on the nose. But if you look at it as an “our children are misbehaving down there” scenario, there are moments where it looks like we’ve gone out of control, running around with armor and skirts, which of course would be the Roman Empire. And they were given a long run. A thousand years before their disintegration actually started to happen. And you can say, “Lets’ send down one more of our emissaries to see if he can stop it. Guess what? They crucified him.

But...

Now the Alien franchise becomes a Quintilogy–a purely market-driven neologism following the recent Blu-Ray boxset that labeled the first four Alien films not as a “Quartet” but a “Quadrilogy.” Prometheus is made with the same contempt for the public–as if anyone wanted or needed another repackaging of the sci-fi horror tale.
Lets not act like the GOAT critic ain't tackle on this.

When pressed by the site if this will indeed be an extended cut, Scott was cagey but more or less confirmed that was the case, and seems to have rationalized it by saving it's something Fox wanted. "Maybe. But Iím so happy with this engine, the way it is right now. I think itís fine. I think it works. It can go in a section where, if you really want to tap in, look at the menu. To see how things are long, and itís too long," he said. "Dramatically, Iím about putting bums on seats. For me to separate my idea of commerce from artóIíd be a fool. You canít do that. I wouldnít be allowed to do the films I do. So Iím very user friendly as far as the studios are concerned. To a certain extent, Iím a businessman. Iím aware thatís what I have to do. Itís my job. To say, 'Screw the audience.' You canít do that. 'Am I communicating?' is the question. Am I communicating? Because if Iím not, I need to address it."

i get the bolded part...but why even have a warning *For men* when its hers???? why even put that warning in the movie?? she did offer s3x to keep him from asking questions about her.. i get what you're saying but all of that is surface....im thinking deeper..or do you think it might have been just a plot hole??
i think it was supposed to be a hint that weyland was actually alive and on the ship the whole time.

This thread gave me greater appreciation for the movie. Bumping up my original 8/10 to an 8.5/10 for now.

I still wish the movie was maybe 20-30 minutes longer.

And my only other gripe is - if the Space Jockey ended up coming after her at the end - then how come in the original Alien the space jockey is still seated in the "cockpit" of the ship that crashed?

the problem is you're confused about the timeline of events and the location of events..

the planet in Prometheus is called LV-223 and the planet in Alien and Aliens is LV-426. These planets are in the same star system (Zeta Reticuli). However in galactic terms, they are relatively close neighbors.

also,

The Engineer in Prometheus is not in his char when he gets chestbursted
Because he's not the same guy as the one in Alien. Different planet, different Space Jockey.


also,

Prometheus is in the same universe but is not a direct prequel to Alien. Prometheus does take place before the discovery of the derelict in Alien.


hope that clears some things up for you...

that chart shows one of the problems with this film that's causing confusion on what the black goo actually does.

For some reason they changed Fifeld's mutated state into a acid burned superhuman which doesn't really mesh well with everything else. I think they did that so the Xeno reveal was more of a surprise because Fifeld original changes into a psuedo-xenomorph and they even shot it as such.

peep the super duper long arm.

My own personal theory is that the black stuff has two different outcomes depending on how you come in contact with it. Ingestion leads to a break down of the body while simple touch only mutates you. Because Holloway drunk the stuff like the sacrifice Engineer, he began to break down as the engineer did only at a much slower rate. While Fifield's skin only touched the goo when he fell into the stuff and it morphed him to what should have been the thing on the far right in this photo

plus the space jockey in alien was WAY bigger then the "engineer" in promtheus, so was the chair he used to pilot the craft in alien
