watched the it last night,what a pile of poo.
I wouldn't perhaps go quite that far but you are on the right track.
What's slightly smaller than a pile?
HiFi / A/V / Bedroom
Well perhaps compare what a cow produces to let’s say a pig.
This could get seriously gross!

Finally saw Prometheus this morning, I can't see what people are getting so upset about (ok there were no Aliens in it, boo-hoo, get over it), perfectly passable sci-fi movie for me, just like the first three (yes, I like Alien3 and Resurrection is possibly the worst film I've ever seen).
The only plot hole I really noticed was the spaceship tech available in just 80 years time (although there's probably nothing they can do about that given the restriction of having to take place before Alien) and the flight time, the nearest star system is 4ly away, and there's no suggestion this is Proxima Centauri (it isn't, it's the wrong sort of star) and to get there in 2 years would mean travelling at twice the speed of light, so given this must be at least 8ly away, that's an issue, Ion drives could give an appreciable fraction of the speed of light, given enough acceleration time but it's still only a fraction, not multiples.
There are questions [SPOILER ALERT], if there are "many" other engineer ships on the planet, what happened to the engineers on those ships? Presumably all dead if Shaw can borrow a ship, but where are organisms that killed them and why won't they kill Shaw the same as they did the rest of the crew?
Other than that I enjoyed it, the pacing didn't bother me but then you're talking about someone who's favourite Star Trek film is The Motion Picture...
No signature worth mentioning...
Well said! I suppose the aliens must've aged & died, as the Engineers were killed 2000 years ago.

Guh! That never even crossed my mind! But, having said that, why wouldn't they have flown away again in the meantime?
My understanding is that the "aliens" were also the Engineers' own creation. That black goo forms the basis of life, & I think those snake-like aliens are in their basic form before their DNA gets spliced with another DNA (after they attack humans / engineers) when they transform into those ugly creatures.
The subsequent parts may shed some more light on this.
Pish. Everyone knows Zephram Cochrane develops the Warp Drive in 2063. That leaves them 20 years to double its speed...

You weren't paying much attention then. Don't get me wrong, I liked the movie, but there are way too many holes to be filled.
Fill me in then, I can't be bothered to read the entire thread.
Basically, some of the girls are getting theirs in a bunch because Ridley didn't rehash what he did over 30 years ago, they couldn't suspend their imagination, EDITEDed senseless about it for months, then when they find that it's getting a decent rating on sites like Rotten Tomatoes (where they know their onions) and others on here are talking it up, rant on like Maxflinn on a cable snarkfest. Well, maybe not that bad, but you get the gist. Probably doesn't help that there's a pile of us on here that like the film and think it's a worthy addition to the line.
