    I've been noticing the same correlation.

    It's certainly not 1:1, but I think it kinda is there.

    What theory is this?

    That Ti doms aren't willing to suspend their disbelief, but Ni doms are?

    I'm sorry, but is this example serious, or sarcastic?

    I've only quickly read through the recent posts, and already mistook one case of sarcasm for being serious.

    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.
    I'd agree with this. I thought it enjoyable enough, but expected more, which I suppose is my fault. Great trailer, great TED tie-in which approaches a subject I am extremely interested in [the complete shift in how humanity, life, sentience is understood when synthetic life is introduced], interesting questions raised but very little in terms of follow through and development. Thematically it just seemed to throw a lot of buzzwordy concepts at you as though it was just trying to get through its own version of Sci-Fi ad libs. The reason I thought it was "crap" was essentially because I thought it could do more, but it didn't, and what was a well shot movie was dragged down by an incredibly weak story/script that teased depth while ultimately unraveling into simple OMG RUN ALIENZ!!!! @Nicodemus' Sunshine comparison was extremely apt, even though I thought Sunshine was a bit more focused and delivered more powerful moments [Kineda!? What do you see?].

    However, I really loved Michael F. Assbender's David, a lot. I thought he was clearly the strength of the movie and the perfect character to force the humans to examine their pursuit of the Engineers through him and I was happy to at least see that was attempted. I even liked seeing David have his own taste of playing God when he stole away his little pet and infected Dr. "I just discovered aliens and overturned Darwinism, but I'm going to cry and bitch about like a little girl because I can't ask them questions the first day on my expedition" just because he could and wanted to see what would happen, clearly a possibility describing the Engineers' relationship to humans.

    Which chick survived in the end? Noomi? Anyway, I thought it was pretty strange that she wants to visit a whole planet full of the same aliens who just savagely killed off some of the entire crew of the Prometheus. Pretty suicidal, actually.
