(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 24

In the original version could Charlize Theron run in diagonals?

They had a drive capable of single ship planet-to-planet transit. Those engines would have to be putting out gigawatts of energy.


That was your problem with the movie? Hell I wanted the engineer to get away and destroy everything....EVERYTHING.

I was really excited to see it, I even dragged my wife along, who is kinda meh on sci-fi movies, although she did enjoy "District 9". After "Prometheus" was done, I apologized and said I'd go see a rom-com as penance. 

I think the Farker above had it right. Damon Lindehof = Rob Liefeld.

BalugaJoe: scottydoesntknow: GRCooper: I guess I'm a moran, or I missed something - I thought Prometheus took place on LV-426

Nope, they land on LV-223

I thought they were on LV-227.


Did IQs just drop sharply while I was away?

CujoQuarrel:

There are two crew members lost and no one on the ship maintains communication with them (ok. it was because he was going to get to bang CTheron but still ...



In her ship at LV-426, Dead Ctheron waits dreaming.

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!


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.

sprawl15: It doesn't explain why they didn't brief ANYONE about ANYTHING until after the years long trip to the moon. Or why the Engineer decided to go full retard and try to punch out some girl instead of just getting on another ship to deliver his deadly space jizz to Earth.


Okay, yeah, you got me there. But it explains SOME things.

Virtual Pariah: Spanky_McFarksalot: I don't get all the Prometheus hate, I liked it. I've watched it half a dozen times so far.

Only 2 things that bother me are; 1. paintings on caves = aliens engineered us? how do u get there exactly? and 2. hey, this alien world is a weapon plant. huh?

Its a good movie, I'm willing to give them a sequel to answers some of the mysteries

I liked it miles better than Avatar.


Don't get me started on "Blue Monkeys Farking: The Movie".

meat0918: skinink: I bought the DVD because I liked the special effects in the movies and the acting was good. The plot was bad. The thing that disappointed me the most is how the Aliens morphed from being to being which it was born in. Just didn't make any sense.

That's something that carried over from Aliens 3 and other media.

The xenomorph absorbed some of the form of host species. Fairly canon stuff.


If I ever use the phrase "Fairly canon stuff" again, shoot me.

Mad_Radhu: 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.


Lindelof is a golem risen up from the shiatty culture that birthed him. A half witted, barely conscious culture will always find this person in the aggregate of humanity.

Please...

Just make "Alien: Engineers".

We'll just forget about "Prometheus".
I'll even delete my copy.

Sadly, very few people in sci-fi have learned the Kzinti Lesson.

The ship wasn't called Prometheus? Was it Serenity? Because that sure as hell looked like Serenity. Like "add-two-engines-and-call-it-a-day" Serenity.

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.
