That's an interesting thought on the Engineer being the beginning of all life on earth. How would you explain us having the exact same DNA sequence over millions of years? Odds are not good on that one, but I could buy it.
True about the evolution of the Xenomorphs, really good point there
Did not see the significance of the worms, good point. That would also explain why those two scientist were outright killed and not impregnated.
Yeah, that was a crazy scene. David noticed what she did but everyone else acted like she ran to the 7/11 for an Icee. On a small side note, the daughter going and her role in the movie was strange. If she's running Daddy's company and doesn't care about this expedition or anything, weird that she would sacrifice a few years and possibly her life just to go along and try to sabatoge the whole thing.
Also, others mentioned that some of the team were nervous about the Aliens except the 2 scientists which is true but when they were told no heavy weapons, no one really complained that much. I mean it's a movie and shouldn't be disected I suppose. After reading reviews though, I was expecting a lot more than just (imo) a decent movie. To each his own though. I enjoyed reading all the comments about the movie from you guys and was trying not to spoil it for others.
Aussie- no offense was taken on the different movie comment. While I love action movies, I like them to have a plot and some originallity as well. It's hard to tell from previews until you actually sit through one though. From the previews, I thought it looked pretty solid but no guarantees.
Okay good. Just the way I said it kind of came of snobbish.
Everyone likes what they like was all I was trying to say.
I just took that as David being treated as the "son" and favorite her whole life and her not letting her dad do anything without her knowing about it.
That and she didn't want her father to succeed in finding some miracle to keep him alive. She made it clear it was her time to get control of the kingdom.
One thing that bothered me was when the ship crashed and was rolling like a wheel.
Why didn't they run to the side to get away from it?
I said the same damn thing. It was just obvious.
While I agree the the odds of an exact DNA match after millions of years of evolution is a stretch (and honestly why for me it would have been more believable if it had been a 98-99% match) I believe that was the intent of the opening scene. Life on Earth was supposed to have started in the water with single cell organisms and evolved, but where did the first single cell come from? Maybe the repeated trips to Earth (as seen in all the drawings and pictographs) were the Engineers checking on the progress of their experiment and tweaking things to keep it going in the direction that they wanted it to go?
Why would people post Prometheus spoilers in a general movie thread? IMO a specific Prometheus thread would've been more well-suited.

Could be good but goes against my idea of when proper movies are released. The best movies are usually saved for holiday seasons(Christmas, Thanksgiving and summer time). Probably because the general public has more time off. The others that don't test as well are released sporadically throughout the year. Wait a sec maybe I read that somewhere. Hell I can't remember. Could be my idea too.
What you eat, don't make me shit.
That's generally true for the big budget/big director movies but this type of movie would just never be a success going against the summer blockbusters. Releasing it in September gives it a better shot at making money.
That's not to say any movie released after summer and before Christmas will automatically suck, it's more of a tactical approach to maximize profit.
As for the trailer it looks entertaining but I think I'm more interested in Total Recall.
I agree it's a tactical approach partly because the movie released in September didn't test as well as a movie being released around the beginning of summer. Can't remember the last movie I saw in September or February that was any good. Maybe a foreign flick. I've been kinda disappointed so far this summer. Watched both the avengers and Prometheus and thought they were both good but just wasn't blown away. Hopefully batman and spiderman deliver. I really wanted to watch cabin in the woods but couldn't ever get a babysitter.
Has anyone seen Moonrise Kingdom?
Limited release sucks. Not playn down here in south Alabama.
It's playing by me now but haven't gone yet... limited release does suck
I thought as far as summer movies go both Avengers and Prometheus were really strong. Better than anything that came out last summer.
Is that the new Wes Anderson flick?
I agree. I had fun at the movies last summer but those 2 movies are better imo.
Should be really solid.
You would think the premiere in Malbis would show it.
Yeah I figure it can't be bad... check this out this is pretty funny... They did a great job
What if Wes Anderson Rebooted the Spider-Man Franchise?

Can't argue that. I honestly can't remember any movie releases from last summer or actually going to the movies last year. Might be because I had newborn in the house.
