Re: PROMETHEUS

Let me offer a radically different take on the movie background. Suppose the Engineers are so beneficent that they can no longer fight wars. Let's say they are attacked by some OTHER alien race. These are the ones that made the biogoop. (I know the movie starts with the acolyte drinking the goop - ...

Re: PROMETHEUS

Why does the Engineer at the start drink the Black Goop. Do they worship the aliens, want to make more of them? Prometheus part2 lady makes it back to the creators home planet, releases back goo and creates a planet of aliens, so we are the ones that creates a world/race of aliens? In the book Prom...

Re: PROMETHEUS

Hmm... Ermahgerd started on March 14, 2012 and is already part of Internet culture? The whole 'origin' talk is full of words that I am not familiar with: Goosebump books, subreddit, quickmeme, plantlife. This rate of cultural change is faster than the speed of light. It deserves movie treatment. Ma...

If you don't like this blatant use of social media manipulation, don't forget that there is an 'Unlike' on facebook.

Re: PROMETHEUS

I am currently halfway through John Scalzi's excellent and hilarious new book 'Redshirts'. If you like Galaxy Quest and know your Star Trek, you will really enjoy this novel. Without giving away anything critical, I want to write a short extract as it is relevant here: 'Every battle is designed for ...

Re: PROMETHEUS

There's always a dilemma in a movie - reality versus drama. That combined with a 2 hour time-limit conspires to create some compromises that define the genre. If you give the people weapons or tools that are too powerful, you eliminate the drama of conflict. We can't postulate too far into the futur...

Re: PROMETHEUS

I just got my pre-order of this from Amazon. I just looked over the art but haven't read anything yet. It covers a lot of concept art and most of this stuff will probably be on the DVD as specials. It looks pretty good and has a bunch of alternate take scenes which I guess were later rejected. In pa...

Re: PROMETHEUS

You guys are over thinking this. Incredible vistas. Ship fly-bys. Lens flares. Blinky lights. Spherical glass helmets. Nostalgia-induced dopamine shot from space jockey chair scenes. Slithery acid-slinging stuff. Android has best acting chops in film. Girl performs self-abortion. Big guy starts kic...

Re: PROMETHEUS

I'm probably going to stop following this topic as I think it's played out and will soon devolve into a PC versus Mac war, the path every thread goes. But let me point out one thing that no one had brought up before: Forbidden Planet. This movie has an awesome sound track, incredible effects, decent...

Re: PROMETHEUS

I'd urge you to read that blog post from AICN: http://cavalorn.livejournal.com/584135.html ... but they carried with them something foul from Earth - a nasty version of the goo, no doubt, born from the violence they just witnessed. . That blog makes a of sense. It seems to imply that the humanity o...
