Lol. I noticed it when I saw it the 2nd time the other night. And the digital hand.

I work in pediatrics so it was pretty noticeable for me.

Will Google now.


EDIT: Ok, that's just hilarious.
Anyone who has any experience with babies can spot the fakeness of the infant immediately.


Maybe CE should reshoot the scene or digitally paste a real one in for the video release....

Eastwood doesn't do reshoots. The conversation on set went something like this:

Asst. Director: "Clint, the baby Bradley is supposed to hold in this scene is sick! We can't get a replacement in time. We need to delay the shoot until tomorrow."

Eastwood: "Put a doll in his hands or something. Who the hell cares? It's just a movie."

Reminds me of an ex I had. Her friend likes A1 steak sauce on tacos.


Suffice to say, she (the friend) was white and not from California.

Yikes! A1?

People need to understand - the taco itself, is merely the vehicle for the salsa.

I'm sorry Detective Callahan, but a hot dog (beef, of course) ain't a hot dog unless it has ketchup & mustard on it.

I heard a rumor that the Alien in ET ain't real but that they used a rubber puppet instead. I hope Spielberg gonna release a digital tweaked version of ET.

Won't happen.
Apparently you are unaware the alien in ET was borrowed from Area 51 and is being held captive in Speilberg's closet.

Rich people collect strange objects - this is known

For me, it would be exotic wood samples that smell sweet when sanded

You just know that a 15 minute steamy love scene was left on the Director's cutting room floor. To be later released with other scenes as the Unrated "Director's Special Edition" 4K version of Prometheus. Idris Alba...Charlize Theron...I bet a few light bulbs exploded in that scene!

Every get the impression that clueless millionaire actors are "Bored" and perhaps
a little "Dim" so they decide to say some stupid thing about politics or relationships
that make no sense outside their strange protected little world. Tabloids blow up the
strange ho-hah and it's just a cluster *&^%

I do

2 bulbs...1million kilowatts...LOL! Mickey Rourke & Kim Bassinger...91/2 weeks redux?Seriously though...It was obvious to me , watching Prometheus, that a lot of it was intentionally cut out. Because the scenes like the referenced one just had no context afterwards. It was sort of put together...herky jerky IMO. And I suspect everyone will be happier with the Director's Edition, that is not reaching for a PG or even R rating.

It's like doing the same job day in an day out for years. At first, you were all about doing it right and trying hard. You wanted to make a difference and do it better than anyone else. After enough time has passed, it's just about getting it done so you can go home and make a drink.

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

Great find.


I thought your link was so interesting, I would post some of what RS said here:


“You can either say, leave the first film alone and jump ahead, but you can’t because it ends on too specific a plot sentence as she says, I want to go where they came from, I don’t want to go back to where I came from,” he explained. “I thought the subtext of that film was a bit florid and grandiose, but it asks a good question: who created us?”
Of course, the end of ‘Prometheus’ certainly lends itself to a sequel, with Elizabeth Shaw deciding to bring the fight to the Engineers and head off in search of their home world – presumably to find some answers.

And it sounds as though it’s going to tackle the big question – why are we here?

“I don’t think we are here by accident,” said Scott. “I find it otherwise hard to believe you and I are sitting here at this table, because the molecular miracles that would have had to occur were in the trillions, since the first sign of human life that crawled out of the mud with four fingers, would bloody well be impossible, unless there was some guidance system. Also, you have the sun approximately the same distance from earth as it is from maybe millions of planets and planetoids that are almost identical distance and therefore enjoy the value of sunlight on their soil. Are you telling me there are no other planets with human life? I simply don’t believe it.”

Of course, the idea is to find out more about those who created humanity… and considering that the main criticisms of ‘Prometheus’ were its open-questions and lack of any real answers it’s perhaps a good idea to revisit this and give fans a more concrete ending.

“You’ve got to go back and find those engineers and see what they are thinking,” he explained. “If engineers are the forerunners of us, and therefore were creators of life forms in places that were possible for biology to function, who created that? Where’s the big boy? You think this was all an accident? I don’t know. Even Stephen Hawking now says, I am not sure. He no longer believes in the big bang.”
