^ Look, dude. We get that you're the defender of this movie... Stop taking it so personally that some of us didn't like it. It's not aimed at you.

I said ship. Not hand held weapons. But, I'm sure you have a good excuse ready.

Stephen.

Chances are very good that I was drinking when I posted the above.

I was just trying to help. BTW, I am not THE defender of this movie (sounds a bit personal). I'm just one of the majority opinion.

I don't go to the threads about the movies I hate. Why you do what you do here escapes me. confused.gif

You wrote "absolutely no weapons", not about the types.

IMO, Prometheus is a fascinating movie on several levels.

1. the imaginative visuals.
2. the story about a mysterious human origin.
3. the terribly drawn characters that come incredibly close to completely destroying the film.
4. the possibilities of a kick-ass sequel of going to the Engineer's home planet.

Right, just trying to help. Your entire MO is to find little things to nitpick in people's posts, deliberately misinterpret their comments, etc. In the context of this site, you are the movie's defender.

He wrote "on a ship with absolutely no weapons to defend itself..." That is clearly a reference to the ship and it's ability to defend itself. ie shipbourne weapons. Obviously not personal sidearms (see above re. nitpicking & deliberate misinterpretation). It's annoying, not clever.

I agree with oink's assessment above. This was a movie a lot of us wanted to be good but were ultimately disappointed with. And yes it's fun to talk about, even though we didn't like it.

Just think of how easy it would have been to "fix" Prometheus and we would have ended up with a great movie.frown.gif

The flip side of the no ship weapons issue, (which I agree is pretty risky to travel into space without), is that in Alien the ship was a 'refinery/mining towing ship' but still had to respond to intelligent communications (them just touching down on LV426 screwed them). In Aliens, they had the Sulaco's weaponry and the Marines weaponry, it only prolonged the inevitable, but also because of certain issues (Burkes/Company and the atmosphere processor) the weaponry only gave them time to run. In Prometheus, I really don't think earth weapons would've worked against the Engineers because that ship didn't even break apart after Prometheus rammed into it and we weren't shown the extent of the Engineers weaponry. Plus the dude survived the crash and still looking to kill somebody, and only the trilobite creature stopped/impregnated him. Imagine if all of those Engineers on that planet were alive!eek.gif

If they go to the Engineers' planet in the sequel I bet they're about to meet a few of these dudes and it's not gonna be a contemplative experience. smile.gif

The promise of "It will get better in 10 years" is stunning in the many threads here and elsewhere.

People are making up their own scripts to replace this POS and promoting said assumptions (ass ump tions)
as if it will make this obvious Cow Pattie Extrodinaire some subtle bit of Work.

Any of us could rewrite the story in our head and sell it to anyone who cares to read and buy in for
a moment. What does this have to do with the
said product? Nothing, Zero, Nada, .... Keep on tryin' Guys.

Ridley layed a fresh one in the field, and some people keep sniffin' the damn thing
and claim the bouquet is something different. Enjoy Guys

greenjp, no amount of bickering after the fact will change what happened to you in the past. You fumbled the debate because you were unprepared. http://www.avsforum.com/t/1480215/ridley-scott-has-lost-his-damn-mind/60#post_23510414

The best thing for you to do is to learn from your past mistakes and try to improve upon it for your next debate. Sleep tight... wink.gif

Once in awhile a movie comes along that is bi-polar.
Within one single film, we get spectacular highs and abysmal lows.
Prometheus is one of those....which is why it still fascinates.

Funny thing is I bet that most here that loathe the film will be in line to see the next Ridley film.tongue.gif


I will admit that kid stowaway picked the right plane! Although I couldn't imagine being in a wheel well for all that time and in those conditions.

I read that it was Elvis, but you can't believe everything you read on the Internet. If true, those death rumors we've been hearing about for the past 37 years will be dispelled.

^ The news report said, "He hopped a fence". It wouldn't be as suspicious if it said, "climbed a fence".
