    Remember a movie called Alien released back in 1979? It was just a monster movie! Prometheus should've stayed the same way. If you're going to have a bunch of characters to kill off, so be it. But don't give them unnecessary build-up for such an anticlimactic conclusion! (I wanted to see an epic catfight between the original girl with the dragon tattoo and the bitch, even more epic than the one in Aliens.)

    You can't even spell it right. So much for you college education.

    Go sniff some glue, kid.
    I'd like to rename it the Duck Ex Machina, hee... to commemorate you, you know.

    The characters were one dimensional and the plot was generic, but neither of those ruined the film for me as they served an adequate platform that (to me) carried a central theme which Ridley Scott already explored in his Blade Runner, which is not the nature of life and its distinction from machines, but the relationship between a sentient being and its maker.
    In a way it succeeds as a generic film, fails as a quality film, but then again succeeds as an inquiry into the human condition.

    Maybe I just relate to Scott's daddy issues.

    Despite the fact that it was TERRITORIAL and aggressive.
    Remember how it initially hissed and lunged at them?

    This was the precise moment I gave up on the movie and shut my brain off.

    I agree, that wasn't a believable moment. But I want to see the plot-hole. I want to see the moment where someone like Owen gave a ride to someone like Henry, and even broke him out of the quarantine camp I should add, when all his training tells him that Henry should be a hitchhiking alien, and all his common-sense tells him that humans don't have ESP powers.

    ...What in the hell are you babbling on about, fool?

    Plothole!

    They're fuckin' SCIENTISTS. Okay? Highly intelligent, rational minds.
    And they're members of a once-in-a-lifetime TRILLION dollar interstellar adventure.

    Do the math.
