Why did they have to explain where the xenomorphs came from? Why did they have to make the space jockey into a blad albino that's a bit tall? Why did it have to be about the origins of humanity or whatever? Why did the guy want to touch the vagina snake? Why did ginger weedman become a zombie? Why?
>>64943325 The android accidentally called him the equivalent of "nigger" in their language or something. I dunno maybe its due to the fact that this guy was in an installation that was one giant bioweapon? He probably enjoyed his job immensely. He's like one of those extremely racist patriotic border patrol guards in Texas, except he's from space.
The only time I saw this movie was on TV. It was playing while I was visiting my grandfather and he started watching it.
I honestly got lost once or twice while watching it because it felt like scenes were missing and situations were occurring for absolutely no reason at all or only because characters were making the worst possible decisions.
Maybe it was just edited weird because it was on TV.
Earth and humans were about to get destroyed by them before they had a problem on that base with the black goo and then all died or went into space coma. Humans waked him up from his coma and he automatically followed his last orders i.e to destroy human specy
it's literally INSIDE the film, like when you watch it, you get to see those parts on screen. Sorry for your visual disability, must be hard to type in sign language
>Engineers create glorious new biological life form >biological life form thinks it's top shit because it made shit-tier mechanical beings >first contact is literally the Engineers' creation showing up to use their robots to beg the Engineers for eternal life
I could see them raging over the entitlement alone. But it's possible that the Engineers believe organic life is superior to mechanical life and that part of the natural order is eventual death.
>>64943325 Humans are a failed experiment. We killed one of them about 2000 years ago. Around that time they wanted to destroy us with biological weapons. Something happend on this facility and it didnt launch their weapons at us. This 'prometheus' woke up and seeing the creatures he wanted to destroy. But all he knows is that these creatures are still stuck in the dark ages. No space fare. He is puzzled, maybe miss judged? David said something to confirm we are still mentally stuck in the dark ages. Selfish, egotistical, useless.
He understands we still need to be destroyed before we ruin/infect more planets. Our only hope is that we atone for our ways. Redemption.
>>64948551 Has Jesus's looks been described in the bible? Also they may have implanted engineer/human dna mix in mary and contacted him/taught him in the years that jesus goes missing in the bible. All these talks and prayers with God...
I hope prometheus 2 touches upon this. So much lore. I can't wait for it.
>What was the point of showing the alien sacrificing himself at the beginning of the movie and showing the creation of new life on a planet, whether it was Earth or not, when the main mystery of the movie was discovering if such an event ever happened with humanity? By the end of the film we're left with a conclusion that we've already drawn.
>Why did Weyland invest a trillion dollars into an expedition to an alien world that, for all anyone knew, was uninhabited? On top of that, why did he accompany the Prometheus to said planet when it is established that he is extremely close to death? The shock of coming out of hypersleep was revealed at the beginning of the movie and something like that could very easily kill a man of his age
>Why did the weird tattoo guy who got acid sprayed all over his face come back to life as a horrifying monster but not the guy who had an alien snake-penis shoved down his throat?
>Why did David infect Noomi Rapace's boyfriend with the space goo? How did he know what was going to happen and why did he have a change of heart by the end of the film?
>Why does a super intelligent race create the life goo to have negative side effects?
>Why would a creature that's been asleep for 2000 years suddenly attack things that are now intelligent enough to come and find it?
>Why did Charlie ask to die? Did he know what effect his infection would have on him? He sort of looked like an engineer before he died. Why did the symptoms of his transformation seem to look like the dissolving effects of the substance drunk by the engineer in the beginning?
>Was that first substance the same goo? What made the engineers head explode? Why were the other bodies bursted as though they were infected?
>Why does the goo make certain creatures reproduce on a 1:1 basis (the maggots in the beginning get changed to the snake things right? They impregnate and another one pops out) whereas others have an intermediate face hugger stage?
>Why does the effect of the goo seem so random and crafted for the se purpose of advancing the shitty plot?
>>64943325 Because as is the case with these things he was making a display of his violent toxic masculinity to sell the patriarchal idea that being better and more advanced is being dominating and aggressive. The movie's entire premise is belittling feminine ideas with rape analogies and displays of disgusting violent cis-normative actions.
>>64948673 I don't think so. This movie was made to discuss ethics religion and science. Part of the US is atheist, putting their faith into scientific development. Part of the US is religious, fanatically so perhaps. Putting their faith in the belief there is abigger plan for us. Then there are people who are a mixture of both. Science explaining what it can but religion fills in the holes and calms their insecurities.
What if all these worlds collide? This is the heart of Prometheus.
>>64948696 Wigs and skin colouring, holographic projections. A species so advanced can easily manage it. Also, this may have been written to make christians more easily identify with jesus. Its more abouth the main message: "Do unto others as you would do unto yourself etc. ". Then it is about, jesus was tall and kind of grey, but a pretty cool guy.
>>64948806 The mysteries in Alien did not hold up the film's logic. The mysteries made it strange and ethereal. "Who are the Space Jockeys", "Why was there a ship full of eggs", "Where did the aliens come from" are cool questions for another time
They did not keep Alien from being a good horror and sci-fi film
Prometheus' questions are all faults of logic. "Why the hell would this happen this time, but this happen another time" does not make your setting look cool and mysterious
It frustrates the audience by presenting them with a film where 'rules' don't need to be followed
>>64948888 Maybe it's more about the greater message in the film, then it is about small plot points or logic faults? Perhaps it's micking something? All religious texts.. or early scientific theories, before they are dissproved? The earth is flat..sun revolves around earth etc. Maybe its to stimulate the viewer to think deeper, harder about religion and science? What if we believe isn't or should not be written in stone? Maybe it teaches us to not focus on the small logic or plot faults, but to look for a deeper message.
>>64949138 there's no working together with people (yuropoors) who believe government is the answer to everything and should control us. yuropoors will drag us all back to the times of kings and queens
>>64948996 Is it really being called Alien:paradise lost? I wish they let the alien tag go. This dissapointd many prometheus viewers expecting alien(s) survival horror. Give it to flowercamp if he promises no die antwoord shitty actors in it.
>>64943325 I think it's because he put himself in that capsule thing a long time ago to be protected from the alien things or something, who probably killed the other Engineers. So he was upset that they woke him up and now he has no protection and etc
>>64949710 What great wit. The EU is still a fumbling slightly more then a trade union. When we (yuropoor here) are faced with a real problem like the refugee crisis or financial crisis we almost fall apart. If you are talking specific european countries still existing for a long time, Ill agree. But the EU in all its glorious stumbling red tape producing administrative hell hole? Not so sure. Also why are you mad at the US for? Atleast they founded a functioning real union of states, nothing like the EU.i
One one level, Prometheus is a re-telling of Milton's "Paradise Lost":
>Engineers are YHWH >David 8 is Lucifer...proud, vain and disgusted at his servility as an "angel" to inferior, lesser beings (men) >Elizabeth and Charlie are Adam and Eve >the fruit of the Tree Of Life is the black goo, "offered" by David 8 (Lucifer) to Charlie (Adam), which he shares with Liz (Eve)
Just like the Old Testament, YHWH (the Engineer) spergs out at their treachery, and casts down (rips the head off of) Lucifer (David 8)...
He then launches his ship, intent on cleansing Earth with a flood, Noah's Ark style...
>>64949851 the USA has like 230 years of existence as a country. Give more time to the EU. And stop being such a Murican ass licker holy shit I bet you're like an eastern cunt and you dream of being rich or something, you think USA = easy money, free 10/10 bitches, parties like Projet X twice a day. Get that fucking hollywood imagery off your brain
>>64949629 >USA will burn into flames while EU will still be there in 10 000 more years.
>all the US had to do to get on top was watch the stupid Euros go to war and utterly destroy their continent (twice) >Germany started it both times >they're doing it again...Merkel has already taken over Europe with banks instead of bombs, then bringing in the refugee manpower to exploit as the necessary cheap labor to stay on top >they're re-arming, too
>>64950036 I had wonderd if I should mention I'm from western europe because I had anticipated such a response. The anon I was responding to had such a unbased hate to the US while gloryfying the EU I wanted to point out his fallacy. Also I feel the EU had too much time already. It cannot handle crisises. It exists of many states with wildly different cultures, economies and most of all languages.
>be space jockey >see shipmates killed by ayyliens >see best friend killed by sliding door >decide to lie down >forgot to set alarm >wake up 2000 years later or something by some oldfag and gay-ass robot >goofytime.jpg
It was just a suicide. The whole point is that the human race was an unforseen consequence to this guys suicide. Also the reason why the prometheus was all what the fuck are you guys and why are you in my ship later in the movie
>>64943325 because engineers created life, then life created android and the engineers fucked up bad on the world they were on, was going to go to earth to stop whatever they started but something stopped them, nigger went into cryo and woke up pissed seeing them here.
