    I thought it was very good. Typical Ridley style, provoking thought and leaving more questions than answers. This makes a good sci-fi film. A lot of people bitched at the movie but I see that those complaint usually come from people who want shit spelled out for them and/or don't know much backstory and theory behind this saga (hypothesis of directed panspermia, mystery of the space jockeys, the xenomorphs, etc...). It's a very complex and mysterious genre.

    It was ok. I never figured out what that high pitched alarm sounding noise thing in the trailers was though, I didn't notice it in the film.

    EDIT: Just realized it was the same sound from Alien, icwhattheydidthere

    I would say so. In the original Alien they stumble onto a ship with the "engineer" in the chair with a hole in its body. I'm not sure of it was the same planet though.

    Edit: Different planet.

    Its supposed to be a prequal, set in the same "Aliens Universe" But a story seperate from all the other movies. Zero continuation from it according to a Q & A with Ridley Scott

    Actually I thought they could have just skipped to David prepping the ship and started the movie that way. I thought that would have been far better to do. An homage to Alien so to speak. I loved it, but the beginning felt too Americanized to me. Like you said, spelling things out for the masses.

    Yes you poo nugget.

    The Space Jockey is the giant Humanoid alien when he sits in the chair at the end of the movie. In the first Alien he was just called the Space Jockey.

    Kinda. It's its own separate thing but it takes place in the alien universe.

    That sound was never in Alien. It's just a trailer sound to build suspense.


    Anymore questions?

    SPOILERS****



    I just got out of the theatre....I thought it was decent but I had really high expectations. The scenery and SF were awesome, nothing looked really fake. The music reminded me of star trek, I didnt think it fit very well. Not sure why a squid came out of shaw, not sure why David infected Halloway either. I liked Vickers the best I think. The squid looked corny and the alien at the end was kinda dumb too. Anyone else notice that the alien at the end that came out of the engineer was on the wall in the big head room? Anyone else notice all the religious connections? Shaw and her cross, Engineers decided to destroy humans about 2000 yrs ago. (Crucification of Jesus) Interesting take. Hopefully the sequal will be better.

    *Spoiler Rebuttle*

    David infected Halloway to either smuggle some of the DNA back to earth or just to see what would happen.

    Squid came out of Shaw because Halloway was infected with that crap and passed his mutated seed onto her.

    Yeah but wouldnt she have been infected too, like if Halloway had AIDS or Herpes she would then get it? Not just a mutant baby?

    And yeah thats why I figured David infected Halloway when they were talking and the theme was....just because.

    Saw it in 3D. I agree the effects and scenery were awesome. The story line could really only be interesting if you are a fan of the alien series.

    The alien abortion scene was a trip...

    I consider myself an self proclaimed expert on all things Alien Franchise.

    Plus infecting and smuggling Aliens back is Weylands MO.
