There were times when Rik and I were writing together when we almost died laughing. They were some of the most carefree stupid days I ever had, and I feel privileged to have shared them with him. And now he's died for real. Without me. Selfish bastard.

Ooohhh... I'm definitely going to watch this one. I love Guy Peace and Idris Elba, and of course Ridley Scott. Along with the final movie in the Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy, this should be a good summer for movies.

I'm a bit bummed because it opens on the Friday I'll be starting the trek taking the family from St. Louis to Florida for vacation. I would just go out and watch it one night down on vacation but my brother and I like to go see these types of movies together so it looks like I'll be a week behind :'(
  My brother threw a theory of his out there to me based on the trailers.....he's saying that Charleze Theron's character will wind up being an android. It would 'make sense' to include an android either overtly or in a clandestine manner given that androids one way or the other have played a pretty major role in all the 'Alien' movies.

Actually... putting this in a spoiler: Fassbender's character is the android.

How do I know this? They released a "teaser"-video a while ago, this will not be in the movie itself, but to get people excited: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oaJD8cGfZCQ

Pretty sure that's common knowledge as well; at least to anyone who has remotely looked into the film. Perhaps in the synopsis even. But I could be wrong so I'll err on the side of caution.

Okay so I just came home from seeing Prometheus. I won't spoil anything, but it was REALLY good.

The big question, are there traces of alien in it? Nah I won't spoil it for anyone, hope you will enjoy it! :D

I just saw it in IMAX 3D last night.

No Spoilers but it *IS* Visually stunning and an exciting thrill ride.

Doesn't answer all the questions but extremely enjoyable nonetheless.






*SLIGHT SPOLIER*

The scene where Prometheus crashes into the Engineer's ship is breathtaking. I want the Blu Ray now just for that scene :D

*SPOILER ALERT*

Didn't you think it left too much un-answered or do you think they're saving it all for the next one ?

What did you think about the first "xenomorph" appearing at the end whilst there were murals of what looked like a queen in the chamber ?

I want more people to see it so we can start discussing stuff. :P
Putting my answers in small text:

Well, I agree that some things weren't explained, but I also think that's part of the charm. The mystery, and not knowing why some things happened or how they came to be. Just take the original Alien for example, people have wondered for over 30 years about the origin of the Space Jockey, the origin of the Xenomorphs and how the ship crashed on the planet. Who sent out the beacon, and so on. I think we got some questions answered though new questions were asked instead.

Regarding the Xenomorphs in Prometheus, I found that aspect to be very interesting. Obviously the one spawning at the end looked different due to coming from an engineer rather than a human. The painting of the Alien queen was interesting as well. One thing that I still haven't figured out exactly is what the black substance was, and exactly how the life-cycle was. The black substance infected Holloway who was killed, and the other scientist who went crazy and attacked people. Holloway had sex with Elizabeth = she gave birth to the octopus-looking alien. Was that one related to the snake-like alien somehow? Space Octopus rapes Space Jockey = Xenomorph.  :lol
Some of the engineers they found had exploded stomachs, yet there were no traces of Xenomorphs, eggs or facehuggers. That leaves me a bit puzzled. The big mystery as I see it, is what happened before Prometheus landed on the planet. Exactly what was the black substance, what was the purpose of it? How did the Engineers manage to "unleash" it on themselves, and what made them so scared that they were trying to enter the grave/urn-room, where they died outside?


/end spoiler. Without spoiling anything, I'd say that a sequel could explain a lot of stuff.

The scene where Prometheus crashes into the Horseshoe ship and it falls back down to the planet is my favourite from the whole film.

No......Overwhelmingly large Facehugger rapes Space Jockey = Xenomorph  :lol

Speaking of Ridley Scott, we watched Bladerunner in English class last week, because more than half of us weren't there and our teacher couldn't be bothered with holding a lesson for so few people.

Anyway, I'm ashamed to say that I fell asleep, though I blame that on my lacking amount of sleep and not on the movie itself. Woke up in time for the tits though  :biggrin:

That said, I'm pretty sure I'm going to watch Prometheus sometime this week or next, but I'm not nearly as psyched as many people here.

I want to go tomorrow, but not sure whether it'll work out.  There's a 10:05 p.m. showing I've got my eye on if I can get away.

I was just trying to decide that myself.

It was shot in 3-D instead of it being added in Post-production, so if they used it correctly it should look great.

Yes it is worth it imo. But just a tip...don´t sit to close to the screen when it´s in 3D, i learned that the hard way! >:(

My 3D experience got ruined because the 3D effect on the stupid text line got all blurry and alot more when i sat on the 5th row.

Before u ask: I live in the viking territories more specific Sweden and hear we text like true vikings! So this will probably not effect u american folks and other non texting lands!

Just got back from Prometheus...

    Can someone please tell me what the hell happened in that movie? I don't get any of it.  :huh:

My gut reaction is I didn't like it. and my Uncle, who knows nothing about the Alien franchise, walked out of it 3/4 of the way through and was waiting for me in the car.

I really liked it. I don't get the negativity with the plot holes. Oh they never explain why this happens so it just does? Leaving things to speculation and filling in your own blanks is great. A sequel or special features can fill in misunderstanding.
