One other thing is: how could the alien fetus possibly have gotten so huge in the end ? I wasn't able to feed itself in the meantime.


Yes I too wondered how the thing got so big without feeding.
and the Engineer was not big enough unless they come in many sizes, 8',10',12' & 20'.
I did like the movie though, but there are alot of questions left from it.

The movie was to explain how "Prometheus" was going to "steal the fire." It was an Illuminist poke at certain types of people shall we say. Plot was secondary.

I wondered why they would create humans only to want to come back to kill us. Why didnt the creature get to the spaceman before we arrived there. how was finding the creator race going to make the old man live forever?

Re: SPOILER!-Why the Prometheus movie sucked!
Despite how bad the pace of the film was, I think it worked well as a prequel to Aliens yet the side story of AVP doesnt quite fit into the timeline unless Predators.

Heres my thoughts on your points:

1. Humans were either designed by the Jockeys in their image, or as a food source.

2. The first alien chest popper in Alien actually evolved from this first one, it makes sense it'd be larger.

3. See the 1, the food source. Or possibly, the planet was a jumping point between Planets.

4. Black goo was some sort of parasite storage. Or it was the black goo that broke down blue dude into base forms of life.

5. C-section in space would most likely have some sort of fusion to cauterize it. Just accept the fact that its the future and if they figured stasis out, they figured out c-sections in space.

6. Maybe this movie wasnt about any character other than the formation of the Alien?

7. I think that was her assumption after being impregnated by an alien seed and seeing some dude do a crab walk and jump onto a wall. Space is a fucked up place yo.

8. lol @ syntax error. I imagine his AI and his orders told him to experiment.

9. Weylon was alive just for a story plot and message. His God was not nice, so the message was God is not what we think or expect.

10. smoke one and relax already about make up.

11. My message is dont believe in God as he (or she) sure as shit had no mercy for anyone from earth in the movie. Oh yea, dont get caught by an alien cross breed.

12. Blue guy was the original from the Vegas Blue Man group. Also, he is the creator as alraedy discussed.

So, so far you totally missed the whole fucking point of this movie. Which was this:

There was human DNA, Blue dude DNA, and some alien parasite worm that had some badass regenerative abilities dna which eventually took over the mans sperm dna and created an alien fetus. They all got fucked up together and the end result was the Alien.

Also, here's what happens after the movie that wasnt in the movie. This is my assumption based on Promotheus and the Aliens series: The new breed Alien that formed after the Blue dude got the big black worm in the mouth (talk about subliminal messages) and they consumed each other, that first Alien crawled her ass around that Planet. She probably found the Cave with the giant human head sculpture, sets up shop and thats where the theme of the Alien Queens being so large in the Aliens series come froms. First thing the new Alien sees was technically its father face (blue dude which was human.. or are we blue now.. ).

Anyways, by the time "Alien" came out, that planet shouldve been rampant with Aliens. Hell the Aliens given their superior brains shouldve been able to fly a jockey ship off the planet. I say superior beceause the Human/Worm hybrid merged with the one badass blue due.

And my take on the last jockey being evil was given how he had black eyes and the first jockey that broke himself down had blue eyes (least I think they were blue), the parasite worm took control of him. Like that bacteria that takes control of a host to move itself to a warmer location.

So, overall, a good movie if you roll with it. Sorry if you expect to spoon food a story.

That wasnt the real "Alien" fetus yet. That was the product of the worm that the Android put in his drink, which then hijacked his sperm, and the joined with the Human DNA.

Who says the squid fetus needed food given how fast the worm that was cut in half regenerated before eating the geologists face?

Re: SPOILER!-Why the Prometheus movie sucked!
On point number 8, there were 2 motives that I seem to remember. The first was a conversation David had with his "father" to "get results" or something along those lines. The second was his conversation with Holloway just before he spikes the drink, David asks him what he would be willing to do in the name of science. Once Holloway answers "anything", it negates Asimov's "laws of robotics" since Holloway is in effect permitting David to use him as a guinea pig.

On a whole I agree with most of your points of the movie, it seemed ham-fisted in its writing and it was hard to feel ANYTHING for any of the characters, they were so bland.

Lame movie filled with repulsive imagery, based on a shallow, self absorbed, neurotic philosophy. A real indictment of the culture and visions of the conceited buffoons who produce skewed crap like this.

Re: SPOILER!-Why the Prometheus movie sucked!
I just watched the movie about a month ago. I had no pre-conceived notions about what it would be, and best of all, I had no idea that it was supposed to have anything to do with the 'Alien' franchise. (I don't go to the movies, so I see no previews...and I don't watch commercials).

The best way I can describe my impression is that Prometheus compares UNFAVORABLY to Hell Comes To Frogtown.

Re: SPOILER!-Why the Prometheus movie sucked!
WARNING- HUGE SPOILERS!!

Prometheus was so bad, so poinless, and so full of plotholes it could not be anything less then a total and utter dissapointment. Ridley Scott- wth were you thinking?

1. When the question is finally asked in the ending, why were humans created etc, The "alien" answers by breaking the androids neck and riping its head off. I can`t imagine a much bigger antiklimax, ever, in the history of movies. If you ask big existential and universal questions in a movie that was suppose to be the epic movie of this decade, You better have a effin answers, otherwise- Dont ask them. You will dissapoint people greatly. Do not, instead of a simple or logic answer put in "Uhh ..we dont have a answer for that..so ok, what if the big guy rips his head off, that be cool?", NO.

2. The original creature with his chest popped open was way, way bigger in the first movie. And it didnt even die where it was suppose too, it the cockpit chair. Look at those half see-through-white gotish style- blackeyed half-ass aliens running around.What are they about?.... Do we care? The original Exoskeleton was so much better and I shouldnt even have to explain why. Maybe people wants to see cool aliens, true to the original idea, and not half-ass ones.

3. Why would any species leave an "invitation" to their biowarfare factory planet? expecially to the ones they seem to hate the most? maybe, they are not very bright, must be all that black goo.

4. What was the black goo anyway? Some got mutated, some got pregnant, and some just got their face melted away in a cave while his buddy played pikaboo with some sort of snake,...who looked like a crossbreed between a penis and a vagina, A Pegina.

5.You don`t get up and run after a C-section, you would bleed to death. C-sections needs pressure to stop bleeding. I dont care how much staples you use.

6. Noomi will never be Ripley, ok? same haircut is not going to do the trick.That just aint going to happen, like somebody said "There aint no facepalm big enough".Ripley had character, one that you bought as "the real deal" on top of that.No character in this movie had any credibility, and on top of that -they were amateurs, and if they werent, they sure knew how to behave like one.

7.How in the world of Zeus, did Noomi figure out that is was a bioweapon that was going to be used against earth? because of the starmap?? that just didnt make any effin sence- at all!!
She went from "It is an invition" to "They want to kill us" based on what??

8. Nowhere, ever, was there an explanation for why the android put black goo in that guys champagne. Seemed like a good idea at the time? spare of the moment thing? syntax error?

9. What was the point with Weyland being alive? there was no twist to the story? what did it change? nothing! neither did it add anything to the story that Theron was his daughter. zzzZZZzzzZZZ

10. Weylands makeup was horrible bad...

11. If I were to sumon up the message of the movie it would be this- It is better to believe in god and play around in the little pond then to explore the universe looking for the origin and reason of humankind. (Beacuse you will just get your head ripped off, so what else is new?)

12. .....Who runs ahead of a crashing ship rather then away from it? ......

13. What was up with that guy in the first scene? and what happened to the ship leaving the atmosphere? who knows....and who still cares?so many questions, so few answers.

14. All aliens were non cool and ugly, just plain ugly doesnt equal cool sci-fi.

.haha. On the money. U just helped me remember and realise all the emotions I went through while watching this bomb.

Idk how you remembered them all, because I wasn't going for round 2 with that movie to write them down.

The Android amused me, the approach and landing onto the planet had me excited, like ready to rock! Let's do this! Excited.

Then zzzzZZzz. Bomb

I forever hate Theron from this movie. I would punch a woman for the first time just to punch her. Maybe not full power, but hard. So, I guess she did some good acting... Although she has been on my hitlist since my evil-ex girlfriend rented 'Monster' and forced me to suffer through it.

Also weyland, aka jackass' hangy-ballsack grandpa, was so bogus. It truly ruined guy pierces flop of a career.

The Engineers were seeking perfection, but mankind is far from perfect. They eventually found the perfection they seeked in the alien creature.

Like the socialist-progressive (neo Bolshevik dushbags) quasi intellectuals that infest governments and control the media, they seek perfection and wind up only spawning only evil.

It's a political satire baby!
