(Badass Digest)   Turns out the 'Prometheus' you saw was not the 'Prometheus' that was planned. It was originally titled 'Alien: Engineers', took place on LV-426, acknowledged the stupidity of the scientists, and had a much better ending   (badassdigest.com) divider line 221

TheLopper: yves0010: DamnYankees: I'm still one of the 7 people who defend Prometheus. It will probably end up on my top 10 of the year.

So I find another one... Now I need to find 5 more and we can build a castle and defend it.

I saw it opening night and enjoyed the hell out of it!

I really liked it, but at the same time I can understand the criticisms.

And my axe! I saw it this last weekend on dvd and wished I'd seen it in the theater. Very pretty to look at. Yes there were huge holes in the plot, but it was entertaining none the less. I would like to see the directors/long cut.


Seems I am growing an army to protect Prometheus. I got to watch it in 3D and it was one of the few times that I actually enjoyed the 3D. It was used to give depth and not to do cheap out of screen scares.

I didn't enjoy Prometheus, but then again, it's probably because I like Alien.

I can envision how a person who doesn't particularly like Alien might find Prometheus acceptable, though.

I can envision that people who drool a lot might find Prometheus the BEST MOVEE EVAR.

KhamanV: Mad_Radhu: scottydoesntknow: I'm about a quarter of the way through the script (they just reached the star system), and it's already a hundred times better.

I swear, we are going to look back on this guy in a few years and are going to realize that he is the Rob Liefeld of scriptwriting. I've never been more let down by show than I was with the final season of Lost.

I have to tangent and say that the last season of Fringe is pissing me off more than the last season of LOST. The finale of Lost bugged me with its final swerve and I felt it wasted a lot of opportunities with going with the Island of Vaguely Not-Jesusland, but Fringe? I'm okay with the time-shift and the observer war, seriously. It's Olivia and Peter making sad eyes at each other for what feels like 85% of the episode that I am not okay with and the total dumbing down of Walter and the uselessness of Astrid. At war? GO TO WAR. DON'T FARKING CRY TO ME ABOUT YOUR SHIAT. The last couple of eps were better. Slightly.

Also I liked Prometheus.


tangent is not a verb you dipsh*t.

English is a constantly evolving language, so you can verb just about any noun you want these days.

buntz: Oh, I also didn't get, and didn't like, why they had Guy Pierce in bad old man makeup. If he didn't do anything intricate int he plot, why not just hire an old man?


The viral marketing and sequel were the reasons I heard. I haven't finished the script from TFA, but it's pretty damn good. But, I also liked the movie. It wasn't great, but it wasn't bad. Characters panicked. I like seeing that in a script. In a horror movie you expect people to be stupid.

Just watched AvP on a whim and realized, not 11 minutes into the film, that Prometheus works better as a sequel to this movie than as it does to a prequel to alien.

I just finished the linked script, and wow. That really was miles better than what we got on screen. And that's coming from someone who seriously enjoyed Prometheus.

There were a few minor things I actually preferred from the filmed movie, especially how we're introduced to David, but for the most part I would have been much happier seeing this script filmed the way it was originally written. Almost everything is better. Better characters, clear motivations, a good solid connection to the original film, it's all there.

The one major thing I would have liked more than in either version of the movie, as others have said, is having the engineers not be giant humans. That just felt unnecessary, they were much more interesting to me as truly alien beings.

But since the Engineers "made" humans, having them resemble us makes sense.

Yeah, it does make sense, but isn't actually necessary. They created the xenomorphs as well, and they don't resemble humans or engineers, beyond the basic layout of limbs.

I just prefer the idea of our creators being totally incomprehensible. Making them just big pale humans makes hem seem a bit too relatable.
