Agreed.
This is what Prometheus 2 is supposed to explore by going to their homeworld.

Exactly.
IMO, an excellent premise for a movie.

The ending suggests that they were both still looking for "the truth" about the engineers and they were indeed headed to their homeworld, so even if the sequel "may" have more of this or "is expected" to have more of that, at the very least the ending of the previous will have to be addressed. Everything about the plot of the upcoming film is just rumors anyway, for now.

Exactly. The question comes up after the shock of the revelation wears off.

You may be when it comes to Tom Cruise but not for that movie.

IMDB: 7.1 rating

Rotten Tomatoes: 73%

Even in Josh Z's High-Def Digest:
"It's pretty good, maybe has a few issues. (40%"
"It's a godawful trainwreck. I can't believe how terrible it is. (21%"
"It's brilliant! A masterpiece! (18%,"
"Meh, it's OK. (11%"
"It's not very good. (10%"

So there. wink.gif

Fair point. I'm not sure if I would care where they came from at that point, being a self absorbed human. I do think both could be accommodated pretty well with smart writing.

Dunno. I only recall the Star Trek "universal translator" being used in one episode, which is probably why Josh didn't remember it. It may have been that one. They may have mentioned it in other eps, but that prop is kind of big & clunky to carry around. Little did the production designers of ST: TOS back in the 1960's know how miniaturized real-life electronics would get within just a few decades.

And if its the Arena episode, not even Kirk understood that it was a translator.

Good movies are as rare as an on topic discussion.
