I think Prometheus is well done as a film, but I'm tired of the underlying thought behind stories like that (or other sci-fi from Scott). The message seems to be that exploration, science, discovery, the future.. all of it is a pandora's box, with some ungodly monstrosity ready jump out and rape you in the ass. It's a conservative type of take on science fiction. He's not alone on it though, either. So many writers are afraid of the unknown. I don't care to indulge it.
