Because he played Weyland in the online teaser "TED 2025", worth a look if you haven't seen it as is the "David" trailer. I keep meaning to visit Weylandindustries.com; I would imagine both videos are there.

The movie could of done without Pierce and Theron. I'm not sure what purpose either character served, which leads me to the comment that

I plan to watch this movie in IMAX this weekend. I barely read much on the reviews, and posts so I can go in there with a clear mind.

Saw it last night and liked it very much. I didn't feel as much dread as I did during Alien and Aliens but it still was a very good film. It was beautifully shot as well, it looked stunning.

Been thinking of what to say since seeing on Saturday, all I know is I am definitely in anticipation of a sequel. What really is relevant to me from the whole movie is my curiosity for the usual things:

[Show spoiler]1. The origins of the engineers 2. Their purpose for destroying humanity 3. Someone to find time to look at the black matter under a microscope, and 4. The next phase of evolution for that special friend at the very end we meet.


In particular I didn't see any plot holes, and if there were I tend to think of a way to patch them up anyway through theorizing what the reasons are for things to happen the way they do in movies. I would've given in a 5, but I think once the sequel completes the experience it will gain a 5.

Prometheus actually felt like a movie for a change. There are too many movies which just seem processed. Prometheus is like a classic sci-fi action film from the 1970s-1980s when movies seemed like an experience rather than scenes put together by producers.


Anyone else notice that the spacesuits, machinery, and vehicles looked like the Starcom toys from the 1980s? http://www.starcomspaceforce.com/astro_vehicles.html#1

Hopefully it's a real IMAX with a 70 mm print. Those AMC minimaxes (or liemaxes) are a rip. Saw it for $12 (before noon matinee) at the Rave in LA (huge screen) and they were charging $15.50 for matinees at the AMC Century City 15

I was blown away by the visuals.

I guess it depends on what you mean by a plot hole.

[Show spoiler]I'm not sure a single question was actually answered in the entire film. Wait a minute, I'm wrong, they did answer whether or not the "Engineers" actually created us. In fact they answered it before the question was even posed.
I'm a bit pissed because I was actually interested in the storyline. This wasn't a film, it was the marketing that comes before the film.

Question:
[Show spoiler] Can anyone explain to me what the engineers were running from, and what killed them all?
Am i crazy or did we just never find that out? Seems like a pretty basic plot point to leave out, or was i just not paying close enough attention?

Sucks using your imagination doesn't it.

I have personally loved discussing this movie with the group i went with as well as online and everyone has different takes on different aspects. Just like LOST though i can see why everything not tied up in a bow is a negative for some.

This was earlier discussed but no one seems to know the answer. But maybe they were chasing something instead of running. They didn't look like they were in panic.

I don't need everything tied up nicely, but at least give us something. It didn't resolve anything. Like I said before this just felt like setup to two other films,
[Show spoiler]an Alien reboot and Prometheus 2 ( or, Prometheus...for real this time)

Yeah and i get that, personally i think that reaction has more to do with the advertising and hype around this movie then the film itself. Just like watchmen people go in and don't get what they expect. For me i left thinking it was a great experience and a great sci-fi trip that got my imagination going a mile a minute. The "disections" i have read online have only made it better imo, may actually need to go see it again before it leaves the theatres and i find that a refreshing change from the direction of movies lately.

It was a question they never found the answer to. One of many. I don't mind that though. I do hope there is a sequel to fill in many of the mysteries presented.

I think Prometheus did a good job - it presented us with many interesting findings and theories, but moves along so quickly that we just don't have time to figure them all out.

But that's more like real life. We still don't have many answers for civilizations and what happened to them on earth. Where did the Mayans go? Why do ships and aircraft disappear in the Burmuda Triangle?

To show up on a planet and figure everything out in 24 hours would have been a bit ridiculous. I mean, finding all the stuff they did was pushing suspension of disbelief.

I am still surprised people's biggest problem with the movie is that it didn't solve all of the mysteries presented. In fact, it took a basic question - and by the end of the movie we find it is much more complicated and epic than we imagined.

I truly think, if this movie was not related to Aliens - people would all have high praise for this movie.

I like that this isn't yet another Alien movie where people land, discover eggs and struggle to stay alive for two hours. We have already seen that movie several times.

Ridley tried to create an original story (basing it in the same universe), that is much more epic than the Alien storyline - and I'm surprised it's being met with disdain and shrugs.

I'm much more happy talking about this universe and it's mysteries than talking about "Wasn't it cool when - insert Alien action scene we've seen a hundred times".

(Sorry, iamsometal - this post wasn't aimed at you, just using it as a springboard to talk about this issue that has been bugging me with many criqitues).

I have loved all of the theorizing I have been going through since I watched this movie on opening night. I finally stopped thinking about it last night. My brain felt tired from all the work it had been doing. lol

I'm gonna go check it out again in a couple of hours.
I mostly come out at night...mostly.

Interesting thought, but i have to stick with
[Show spoiler]running away from something since they all ended up dead save for the 1 that was in the stasis pod
.

Glad to know i didn't just miss a major plot development. Thanks! Hopefully some of that info is included in the extended cut or a possible sequel.
