Yeah they looked EXACTLY the same too, lol!

I enjoyed it though. I've never seen Alien or Aliens though. I still think it was full of plot holes, bad dialogue, and some otherwise lame moments, but I still enjoyed it

the jockey leaves the chair to go hunt that last chick? Then why does Alien show the jockey in his chair with his chest burst open? That's the only tie between this and Alien and Ridley Scott fucked it up completely!

Different planet yo. But other than that, I'm on the same page with ya on the plot thing.

I give a big hand to this quartet for messing it all up.

Ridley Scott
Pietro Scalia
Damon Lindelof
Jon Spaihts

I still think in some naive way it could be all saved if those odd plotholes were explained in a waaay longer DVD release. I want to believe.

I rewatched Alien and Blade Runner last night just to see if my dislike of Prometheus was somehow out of proportion.  I'm now even more disappointed with Prometheus. Either he's gone senile or he just doesn't give a shit anymore.  The artful mystery and intrigue of brobdingnagian space jockeys trucking alien eggs across the galaxy and androids retiring androids has been replaced with sloppy, gaping plot holes and irrational characters saying and doing stupid shit.

at what point in the filmmaking process did it seem OK for the guy in charge of mapping out the complex with his little laser balls to get lost in said complex?

Black Hawk Down, Gladiator, Black Rain and Thelma and Louise are good.  even the long cut of Kingdom Of Heaven was decent.  I wasn't expecting the second coming of 2001 with Prometheus, but it was such a fucking regresssion compared to his earlier sci-fi work.

The two guys who said they were leaving the ship cause things looked fucked up. Then proceed to not only get completely lost, but don't freak out at all at the alien penis and think its really cute.

Every little subplot like the above has holes in it. Just doesn't make sense.

And Charlize Therons performance was so robotic I'm not surprised by the end if you're left in doubt that she was human or another android.

she was robotic because she felt that was the best way to compete against her "brother" David for the love of their father.....or some bullshit like that.


or she was an android equipped with the anatomical and system operation accoutrements of a hot little pleasure bot.

Doesn't come to the cinemas until August here. Damn euro 2012. I want to see aliens not people kick a ball around.
once upon a midnight dreary, while i pron surfed, weak and weary, over many a strange and spurious site of ' hot  xxx galore'. While i clicked my fav'rite bookmark, suddenly there came a warning, and my heart was filled with mourning, mourning for my dear amour, " 'Tis not possible!", i muttered, " give me back my free hardcore!"..... quoth the server, 404.

Typical Ridley Scott movie - they cut 2/3rds of the film to make it fit into an action film genre for theatrical release, this lobotomizing the mythological & historical references, and crippling the storyline.

Like Bladerunner, wait for the extended Director's Cut to pass judgement.

Edit: There is a reason why the name of the movie is Prometheus.
Read the Greek myth of Prometheus, and keep it in mind while watching the film.

Yes, yes.. apparently Replicants are not fans of the Freudian techniques.

Considering that Phillip K. Dick wrote stories more in line with Jungian thought, that reaction was to be expected from one of his characters.

I don't think a director's cut can fix this train wreck, unless he shot alternate takes of scenes with better actors working from a better script.

Just imagine Tom Hanks and Daniel Day-Lewis not getting lost and then not trying to jerkoff a fucking space cobra unlike ginger cunt #1 and four-eyed cunt #2.  I'd watch that version.

The guy with the path finding balls gets lost and the guy who is scared shitless of a dead alien wants to make love to an alien penis cobra.

I agree with you, a directors cut won't fix shit.
