Maybe that liquid in it's state when ingested is part of the biological weapon they created, kind of like the same sh1t homeboy ate at the beginning of the movie?

Don't know but there will be another movie no doubt.

So the alien Queen on the mural clearly predates the end of the movie.

The life cycle of this organism is ridiculous then.

The film was lazily written. It felt in places like someone had held me down on the floor while punching me in the face saying things like "ROBOTS ARE LIKE PEOPLE BUT ARE THEY PEOPLE!?" and "FAITH IS FAITH EVEN IN THE FACE ON CONTRARY EVIDENCE!?" while in others it made no sense.

Like baby squid survives the decontaminate process. Then grows into massive squid. WHERE DID THE REST OF THE SQUID COME FROM? What the hell was it eating? It's not a minor point, it's a question of phsyics. I can accept it growing super fast but that extra mass has to come from somewhere. What, did Peter Weyland store his handy surgery booth with his secret stash of big macs and pizzas?

Quote:

There seems to be an obsession with trying to show everything in movies. At the end of Alien you were left thinking "What was this creature? Where did it come from?" just as at the end of Blade Runner you were left thinking "Is Deckard a replicant or human?". This film attempted to answer the question of where the Alien xenomorphs came from and set about answering it in the most banal and slap-dash manner possible. I can't help but worry that the forthcoming Blade Runner sequel is going to do much the same thing.

On a side note, I didn't find the lead character (the woman) attractive but as the film went on I wanted to bang the sh1t out of her.

I actually did quite fancy Noomi Rapace as Elizabeth Shaw, doctor of apparently archaeology and advanced xenogenetics.

Interestingly enough I found it strange that they had to make Dr Shaw an expert in both archaeology and genetics while at the same time having a geologist and a biologist on board with characters that would be considered shallow in an episode of Scooby Doo.

Speccy floppy-haired twat: Hi, I'm Dr Cannon Fodder, Biology
Techno-warrier tattoo face twat: Hey, I'm here to make money, not friends - so don't try and tell me anything about your biology or what field you specialise in or anything else about you that will make your obviously telegraphed demise have even an ounce of meaning, because the scriptwriters are being paid by the word and we have to fit a whole boatload of cliched I, Robot babble in the budget.

And what was that "Hey I'm really scared of the headless alien so I'm going back to the ship" all about? What the biologist (field unknown but apparently he's like an interstellar Steve Irwin) is utterly and dreadfully afraid of a dead body but a living alien that behaves like a king cobra is a cute plaything? That couldn't have been crappier if Trance Warrior Geologist had said "Like... let's go wait back and the Mystery Machine Scoobs! Zoinks!"

Actually the more I think about it the more I'm leaning to thinking this film was pretty shit.

That movie was just eye candy.

It's actually a really good counter-example to this post in the Pulp Fiction thread:

I was entertained by Prometheus. But it was a bad movie. I think much of the entertainment came from the two hours in the pub afterwards dissecting it with my friends.

I think your being over critical to be honest. I never expected it to be great, I'm a fan of Ridley Scott but do think he's a bit overrated. He's like the English version of Steven Spielberg in that his movies are amazing to look at but leave a little less in the story dept. Don't get me wrong he's had some winners like the Alien series and Blade Runner but he's also had some bad ones too.

I do think there will be some answers in the next one but it was a fun movie, the production was top notch and the sounds in the movie were great. I wonder if they will have the balls to follow the chick to the engineers home planet, I doubt it.
