Space is chilly, the fact they can survive for 2 minutes in this environment with no suit says it wasn't to bad there.

Alien "was" a classic, but time also helps us forget its flaws. Alien also had a lot less to explain (coming first). I'm also one of those Alien "cult" types, but think some explanations are forthcoming. There will clearly be at least one more movie and, very possibly, another cut which may be much better...this movie has/had a LOT of potential.

Fassbender just shredded in this film (but, remember, he had the best part and "probably" the easiest to play.....I realize there may be some disagreement here, but when you are playing an android/robot, you have much more license than someone playing a human like [most of] us ).

Noomi was ultra cool (I am going to have to see the first "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and the others also).

Theron is just frelling jaw dropping gorgeous, smart, and flat out talented. When she gets a good role, she just kills. Finding a Snow White who was "fairer" than she is and still had the talent to pull off the role was a tall task (and one that the makers of SN&TH failed at).
It is new so how can it be termed a classic? In 1979 Alien was not considered a great film either. In fact it got good to mediocre reviews, the BO gross was only middle of the road even for back then. Alien was not a "classic" in 1979 nor was Ridleys other film Blade Runner in 82. Lets just sit back and see where this film ends up in 15 years.

How some people can enjoy ANY movie is beyond me, especially in this genre.
They did not know what the co2 levels would be before they got there. Why would they prepare for that?

I don't remember anything in the atmosphere which would be intrinsically harmful. I think it was just the percentages which were wrong, but am not sure.
I seem to remember dialogue that said 2 minutes without air and you'r toast.

Don't know fire as a source of sterilization coupled with space exploration and unknown environments, doesn't seem to far of a stretch to think it could have been worked on somewhere between the space station we have now and inter galactic travel, androids etc... Its not like science and technology advances other then just the purpose spelled out and wrapped up in a bow in the movie. I guess they could add some dialogue to explain all these things like how they got that far into space in two years

No i was saying the gloves are environmental protection and not necesary for a sealed suit, think scuba diver.

Ridley says no director's cut on blu-ray.

In speaking with JimmyO of Joblo last weekend in London, Ridley Scott shares his view on whether or not there will be a Prometheus Director’s Cut by saying ”No, I think (Prometheus) is a good length.” Mr. Scott then gives details on what to expect from future disc releases in which he says “now the fashion of actually putting out a couple of discs is here to stay, which will comfort you on all other kinds of conversation about how the movie was made. All you’ll really do is see extended scenes in the menu.

Loved it. Instant Sci-Fi classic!

Well, up until the part where there's a ship in outerspace that clearly makes audible sound.
Never watching this movie again.

Day one preordered!

I would hope that if Spielberg had filmed a scene with a dinosaur missing skin on its head, he would stop filming and have it fixed. Or if McDowell was missing his eye makeup someone would say something. The are many examples that could be thrown out.
After reading your comments, and the amount of glitches and mistakes found in many films, if you're that distracted, then I can't see how you could be happy or satisfied about anything put on film.

I commented on that on the last reply. Every movie has mistakes and may or may not remove immersion. I don't catch every mistake, this movie just had them at the wrong moments. Sorry that is all have for you.

All I'm saying is that you wouldn't necessarily need to have a glove on as long as there was some seal (could've even been a rubber band if they still used them in the late 21st century....). The air clearly wasn't sufficient for our use (unless you like to breathe from an exhaust pipe) so, sure, monitor the air in the suit (if that's what they did...don't remember) and, certainly, do a check of the environment before walking outside....again, don't remember the details.

Well, if we're all alive, we'll certainly see how the public perceives it. I LOVED Alien when I first saw it and don't know to this day whether it's considered a GREAT film (or classic). Some might say yea and other nay. There are films which "I" consider classics and others which I don't. I can only speak for myself. This thread is, after all, just a conglomeration of opinions. I don't think Prometheus, in it's present form, is a classic, but thought it was a very solid effort and enjoyed it. When I walked out of the theater after seeing "The Fellowship of the Ring", I thought it a classic even though there were mistakes (Nazgul on horse by tree) and omissions and changes (Bombadil, Fog on the Barrow Downs, Arwen helping Frodo instead of Glorfindel). Just my opinions.....
