i'm not even just being picky here - under the smallest bit of scrutiny most things in the movie basically falls apart. yeah i still like it because it's entertaining and well done for the most part but as far as sense goes this movie ain't got none. and that's a pretty big deal. and not 'fantasy' sense. like, logical human being sense.
also there were a buncha scenes that were really sloppily edited. the fifield bit being the main one but the second time i watched the movie i noticed other bits and pieces there were sloppy. like why was the crystal never seen or mentioned again? what did it do? why was it there? why even show it? and everything moved way too fast for you to go 'hang on, what the fuck?'
i know you're not, i agree completely that everyone in this movie did something at some point that just baffles anyone who thinks a little about it
the script and the editing really were the only major flaws this movie had, the performances were good and dumb as the characters were I still enjoyed watching them
I could have ignored the editing had the writing just not been so abysmal and all over the place
hopefully for the sequels they find someone a little more competent
as for the green gem thing I'm guessing that's one of the "raises more questions than it answers" dealies but that's a really, really terrible way of going about it.
oh hey full on focused shot of this big ominous green gem is anyone gonna mention it again nope
You know if they were in the future they would of seen all the alien movies probably so everyone in this film should have known better
Check this out:
The Last Engineer is played by Ian Whyte, who's 7'1".
The Last Engineer with the helmet on played by another actor named Phill Martin who's 7'.
The running "ghost" Engineer is played by John Lebar who's 7'3".
Just back from seeing it, I'm so disappointed.
Actually the writing is fine, save for some super wooden dialog. All three authors agreeing to leave giant holes on purpose is what prevents it from reaching ALIEN status.
I went into it, thinking I'd hate it, but honestly, I really liked Prometheus, sure there was a lot of dumb stuff, but it's easily the best movie I've seen in a while, which is kinda sad.
I went with a girl who has a surgery tomorrow, that's gotta suck.
She lost her shit and just kinda locked up.
I haven't seen anything else on this, so I'll just post this here.
So I've been thinking... what if LV-426 and LV-223 are in the same system? Not necessarily orbiting the same planet, but in the same solar system rather? It's never exactly specified how far away 426 is from Earth, only other than it would be about ten months of traveling, where as 223 is like two years or something? It takes a few days to get to the moon, and a few months to get to Mars, it makes sense to me. It could also give reason as to why there was a Jockey base on 223, one of them left to possibly go to Earth (or left thousands of years before that, maybe going somewhere else with the xenos) and obviously fucked up?
ZRII and 223 are completely different systems, as we see in the holo-map. They both just have ringed planets with jockey moons.
considering the first one has a nude human body but the last engineer is wearing like a suit i guess? why does it look completely attached to his body? it blends in with his skin perfectly. why is that? is his suit a part of him? why is it? can he take it off?
L O S T
I was going to go watch it today, but had so much to do.
Seriously though, despite all the excellent effects, what was with Weyland's makeup, it was terrible.
Why oh why does this film come to germany in august. Why so late? This sucks.
Oh and the reason they hired Guy Pierce in the first place was because they were going to have a scene of Weyland as a young man in the intro. But then cut it out.
It's fitting that such a major theme of Prometheus was that there are some things that humankind will never be able to understand, because I think that applies to the film's script.
seriously why does everyone act like a fucking retard
"hurr durr I'll run out in the middle of a deadly storm to get the head of a thing there's like a million other bodies of lying about but whatever"
"hurr durr I'll run out after her without taking any precautions or anything"
"hurr durr the ship doesn't have a quarantine apparently so we'll have to shoot the sick guy with a flamethrower"
"hurr durr the I'll drink this thing the robot gave me even though he obviously spiked it right in front of me but somehow I didn't notice"
"hurr durr we managed to get lost in the cave even though it was all mapped out in 3D and we could have just asked the guy with the map but nope"
"hurr durr we're completely defenseless but let's go in the room with the mysterious pots and shit and talk to the eel alien"
"hurr durr we're scientists but let's not do do anything scientifically at all"
"hurr durr go against five hundred years of darwinism" (wat?)
it looked good though, just the script was fucking terrible
What's this about a crystal? I seem to have not noticed that part entirely.
