    That link really only brings up more questions. I think what is disopointing about the film if you're a big Alien fan is that you really didn't learn a lot about the Engineer, or a link between them and Aliens. I think there was just a huge expectation from this film and it failed in a lot of aspects.

    However, if you never saw the Alien movies, you weren't missing anything, and the movie would be fairly entertaining. Visually the movie was amazing, Im not a 3d fan but I heard it was as good as Avatar. Other than the last 5 mins, there was no connection to Alien, and Im fine with that but the "monster" aspect was kind of dumb IMHO. Then theres just a lot of dumb things in the movie with characters and some of the sequences.

    Hopefully if they make a sequal, they can address some of their issues.

    He wants to make a sequel. Second he didn't want it to be a direct like to Alien. He wanted to take it in a new direction. Secondly what did you want to know about engineers exactly? I am a big alien fan and I was super happy with the movie.

    Im cool with the "new direction" he was going with. I think it's a good idea, but I didnt leave the theatre excited for a sequal. I think it failed to build a new audience that wanted a franchise that followed dudes that looked like the guy from "Powder" on roids. They needed to establish more history about them and answer some of the many questions the movie raised. How did it do at the box office? They heavily promoted it and if it didnt turn a good profit I dont know if we will see a sequal. Im not waiting for it atleast.

    I just read an article the other day that the studio got the go ahead for the sequal. Ridley Scott will direct but different writers. THank God! Not sure how RS accepted some of that crap. Anyway, Ill be pumped for this and hopefully they can make this a good movie.

    Ordered it on PPV and I guess I got what I paid for. Liked the effects but just lacked something.

    In fairness, I was taking care of my wife who was ill..add to that that I dozed off during part of it and watched the rest on tape later, so perhaps it's not the movie's fault.
