With the release of Transcendence we can have an idea of the quality of the new story...April 18, 2014

Milburn is a huge Steve Irwin, with that fantasy of *I can set up a special connexion with wild animals and yet I can be safe*... but in no way is a real scientific, its just a hipster :p

When people agree to live in ignorance is like religion, is not very smart indeed. In my case, I only see different styles of science fiction, but that does not mean I see Prometheus as an intelligent masterpiece. It is a fantasy film, visually elegant and epic, but with bad characters and poor story.

The smart science fiction is always necessary, but I separated my love of hard science fiction of my love of space opera.
There are many different genres like Steampunk, Cyberpunk, military, post-apocalyptic, dystopian, etc,and I can not judge them all with the same parameters.
For Prometheus, my greatest dissatisfaction was with respect to most of the characters and excessive ambiguity (a sign of a lazy script) but I was not expecting a masterpiece of hard science fiction anyway.

The words from Craig and DJ are not so new, Im only in accordance with the characters Review, but I will not start criticizing the lack of science in a movie about ancient astronauts, because it makes no sense.
Also Prometheus is not a horror film, that said, I can guarantee you that with a better cut, better characters and better dialogues too, we would be seeing their complaints anyway. Fans like to complain about everything, like Lambert :p because the hard core people wanted a horror movie, and this has more proximity to the space opera genre.
But I agree, its good to see intelligent criticism, provided they are not being dominated by hatred, of course. :p

Which I covered when I say *the big difference Is that the characters are better designed, Besides the fact that not act like idiots* ...and yes, I read these two post. No offense to the authors, but there is nothing new that has not been discussed to death here: the plot, the holes, the characters, etc, etc, etc.
It is better to deal with it, and if you want to be consistent with your disappointment:
1. The best would not pay for the movie ticket the next time.
2. The new writer is a noob, and Ridley Scott is a man of visual ideas, so go figure.
2. And not buy the blu ray too. xD

Ok Haters, go to see Gravity if you want hard science fiction. You talk about *the time when space travel is a common thing* but you dont know, you dont know if the idea of truckers in space is the most plausible, could also be droids or drones. Space travel is a difficult task, and for me the true hard science fiction movies show us the future based on the current technological advancement. However, when we turn away from these short-term visions of current technology inevitably begins to resemble magic. There is nothing so realistic in Alíen, the big difference is that the characters are better designed, besides the fact that do not act like idiots, but there is no type of scientific accuracy in Alien, thats just your interpretation. It reminds me of Giger fans who had the misconception that Ridley Scott and Giger have exactly the same creative vision.
If you dont like the movie, just deal with it and move on, but if I were you, I would not expect a hard science fiction sequel, less when all this mythology is based on pseudoscientific speculations.

I have seen the documentary Furious Gods like a million times, and Ive seen the movie like a million times too, in English and Spanish, What I can say? Im an addict :p but as I said, this is to remember the old days...I discovered this site in late 2011, but I was just lurking, I opened the account on the first day of 2012, and I remember that this was the first place where I saw those leaked images
Nov-18-2013 10:47 AM
Yes, its too big to portray well on screen, and on the other hand; if they use effects like in Lord of the Rings, the Engineers can be played by good actors, and not necessarily by the interpreter of the monsters. Do not get me wrong, I think the Engineer from Prometheus looks great, but I just say it's not necessary to choose a big guy for the role.
Nov-17-2013 12:23 PM
@oduodu, yes, I also feel that way, great to see that I am not the only, and the analysis of the scripts is very helpful.
BigDave, nice theory, it's probalbe that Black Goo can only act on living matter as you said, and so the head collapse.
Nov-17-2013 12:10 PM
LOL The engineers are a little larger than the arm of the original Space Jockey?
Nov-17-2013 11:32 AM
@BigDave, Yes! sometimes he looks taller...
like in this concept
I also hope to see more scenes of engineers wearing their suits, in the sequel.
Nov-17-2013 10:45 AM
But one thing is certain; most of the people who work in this film has no idea how to create a coherent concept, they just wanted to do cool things for the big screen. Ambiguity can be a very useful tool, but I think it went out of control.
In fact Prometheus is almost like a Role-playing game...with lots of possibilities and possible stories, and maybe we need some of these in the future :p
The screenplay by Jon Spaihts was more consistent over the Black Goo (aka scarabs), and I think they should keep a little of that, not with the Scarabs, but with the idea and operation of the goo.
Nov-17-2013 10:36 AM
ITs all a confusion, because:
1) Engineers are running from something, even you can hear a roar.
2) The pile, evidence to suggest that they exploited.
3) The sacrificial engineer and Holloway through a similar process.
4) In Furious of Gods, one of the designers said Fifield head was about to explode, as the head on the scanning table.
5) The Engineers know about the existence of the Deacon (by the mural), and we know how is the process to create one of these monsters, long and complicated cycle that includes sex.
So...Engineers were escaping from a deacon / ultramorph? or from a infected Engineer? (Fifield Style)
And if the deacon/ ultramorph is the answer...How this creature was born?..There are Engineer womens? :p or it was just something like in Jurassic Park...Life finds a Way....
Nov-16-2013 7:07 PM
Very good story, is the prologue, right? but ultimately it is a great start, and I'm very interested to follow the further adventures of the protagonist
Nov-16-2013 6:38 PM
I hope so, I hope Ridley is trying to save the really kick ass story from the ambitious hands of FOX
Yes, the greed!!! and It is very likely that they want more money, and you can not achieve that with a single movie.
Nov-16-2013 4:53 PM
True, and indeed these two seem more like Torosaurus, thanks for the head up.
Nov-16-2013 4:49 PM
This type of European dromaeosaur is new to me, the pyroraptor was the only one I remembered :p
Nov-16-2013 4:32 PM
Besides the decorations inside the temples could be as giant cylinder seals, surely this kind of artifact can tell you a little about the history of the engineers...
Actually, the mural was very much in that style IMO...
Nov-16-2013 4:09 PM
I love the style! with the landscape behind the character, so the hero is a dromaeosaurid?
Nov-16-2013 3:59 PM
BTW, for some reason this vessel, at the start of the film, reminds me of a Menhir :p
or something like Stonehenge :p
Nov-16-2013 3:34 PM
Yes, the pyramids are a good cHoice, especially Egyptian because the Central American style is very AVP for my taste
There may also be smaller pyramids, in the temples or in the landscape...
Here are other styles of pyramids that could work
And as for the idea of the tower of Babel, who knows, anything is possible with the right design...
Nov-16-2013 3:28 PM
Beautiful drawing, is indeed very cool style, on the other hand I argue that you could make a comic :p, but that's just my opinion of course
Nov-16-2013 3:25 PM
I know that these creatures are not closely related but those huge holes in the head of Torosaurus are similar to the holes in the skull of Chasmosaurus.

Nov-16-2013 2:36 PM
They need to stretch the gum, ie Ridley was pressured by FOX, because they want to make more money, then the "prequel" becomes the Episode I.
Nov-15-2013 1:12 PM
Membrane and Lone, I'm glad that you liked, but who deserves the credit is Mr. @ wmmvrrvrrmm and his fantastic site:
and Hi btw
Nov-09-2013 7:39 PM
Great fight! and IMHO T.Rex is so powerful, that a defeat would be unrealistic. Unless it is a T.Rex: young, injured or old.
The other possibility would be like in the case of JP3, just to show an exception to the rule, nothing more, but in that case would be a fanciful end.
Nov-09-2013 7:07 PM
I think the key was always put together the best of both scripts, because both have good and bad things.
Nov-07-2013 8:10 PM
At the end the results speak louder than appearances, and that helps us to recognize that they are two different types of substance. Besides the Black Goo is not exactly the same, similar yes, but not the same anyways. Also two types of Goo not look 100% identical anyway. (again the pears and apples are not necessary)
Nov-07-2013 8:03 PM
Nov-07-2013 7:52 PM
@mirobot, I think that is a mistake in editing and also a flaw in the script (because in any case we could not see when one of them dies, even with the correct edition)
Nov-07-2013 6:26 PM
And in Prometheus we have the issue of the outbreak, someone has to screw it up because without this, the story doesn't work ... or at least not with this new threat. With a threat of another kind who knows.
Nov-07-2013 6:21 PM
Necronom 4, I know that ... but Im just saying common sense tells us that Kane should never return to the ship, but without that act Where is the Alien?
Also people complain about everything related to the scientist, but Prometheus is not a hard science fiction film (with ancient astronauts?), neither was Alien. Alien was a horror masterpiece, but not a masterpiece of hard science fiction.

Nov-07-2013 8:56 AM
@BigDave and @Fleshvessel, Can be the murals a summary of what you are saying?
With the original creature that could be used as raw material; for future disintegration and after that the DNA extraction...
And the final product stored at the Urns
Nov-07-2013 8:43 AM
There is a minor bug related to one of the mercenaries (but is independent of the editing process)
and apparently there are a couple of twins
And one of these twins survived during the attack of Fifield
Then ... Where was this guy in the scene with the latest Engineer? or during the kamikaze attack against the Juggernaut? Do we have another survivor for the sequel? :p
Nov-06-2013 9:20 PM
I am curious about the prey that this predator could hunt
Nov-03-2013 9:08 PM
Nov-03-2013 8:26 PM
Good choices, also the Spinosaurus seems built to be a fish eater, or to kill some medium-sized dinosaurs. That Spinosaurus from JP 3 is very exaggerated and fanciful, and seems more based on speculation that reliable evidence, but this is just my opinion of course.
