There goes my theory that he told the Engineer...I know we just met, and this is kinda crazy, but can you make me a real boy...maybe?
well that answers that.....
Definitely a whoa. I still personally think the Engineer didn't get enraged until he realized David was an android. I have absolutely no evidence to back it up, but since the Engineers (apparently) base so much of their tech of on biological manipulation, I can see them being horribly offended (murderously so) at a purely mechanical form of life.
Of course, I could also believe that the idea of not wanting to die could be enough to enrage an Engineer as well. If sacrifice is a part of their culture, NOT wanting to die could certainly be considered a sin.
Out of curiosty, does anyone remember the line the biologist was complaining about when the Captain mentioned the malfunctioning pups? Something about glitches, life forms, what the ****....
what do you mean a glitch?
Alright boys, sleep tight. try not to bugger each other.
What do you mean a 'glitch?' what does he mean?
did he say..he said one click West?
..We.. we don't want to check that out do we? eh..
where we gonna go?
glitch man, pings, glitch, lifeform...what the *****!
Hater: Prometheus was terrible, it was just . . . god it was painfully bad.
Liker: I liked it. It was terrific 3D, and Ridley Scott can shoot a movie. Funny you mention God.
Hater: I hated it. How could you like it? I hated it. I HATED IT.
Liker: Well, Michael Fassbender was terrific for one thing.
Hater: No he wasn't. He was terrible. Every one in the film was bad. Dumb people doing dumb things man. How could like it? I HATED IT.
Liker: Noomi Rapace was . . .
Hater: Dude. The surgery scene was ridiculous. Might be the dumbest thing I've ever seen on film. God, I HATED THIS MOVIE. How could possibly like it?
Liker: I thought Noomi did a great job in the surgery scene. She's a good actress.
Hater: It wasn't realistic. Hated it.
Liker: Realistic? It's a movie about space travel and all kinds of things that aren't real.
Hater: Don't even get me started on Noomi's accent.
Hater: Ridley Scott is old and he smells funny. I hate him. He's just old. OLD.
Liker: Well, hey, the monsters were all done practically. Not a lot of CGI was . . .
Hater: GAH!! The monsters? The monster were terrible. I hated them all. That thing at the end, how could the first xeno be made only 30 years before Alien? How could that happen?
Liker: Well, that's not the first xenomorph . . . uh, are you OK? You have some veins popping out of your . . .
Hater: It's like a house painter came over and royally screwed up your house! I HATED THIS MOVIE.
Liker: You should maybe watch your blood pressure there. Seriously, it's just a movie, it's nothing like a house at all, and it's pretty good and if you like . . .
Hater: I didn't like it. I HATED IT. Do you get that? I thought it was a crime against humanity and I'm never going to stop talking about how I freaking HATE PROMETHEUS. The script was a complete trainwreck. It didn't make sense. Damon Lindelof is the devil. The actual devil.
Liker: Ok, so you hated it. I do get that.
Hater: GOOD. I hate that damn movie. HATE. HATE. HATE.
Liker: The script did make sense though. It made plenty of sense. Guy Pearce was . . .
Hater: GUY PEARCE? His make up was terrible. I hated it.
Liker: His make up was flawless. It was incredible.
Hater: Why didn't they cast an old man? I mean, I know what Guy Pearce looks like under that makeup. It was unrealistic.
Liker: It's a science fiction film. You understand that it's not supposed to be realistic right? That would be entirely beside the point, if it were realistic in any way. It would not be science fiction any more. It would be . . .
Hater: How can you like anything about this movie? I should stab you in the face.
Liker: Don't even try it. I have a gun.
Hater: OH, you would shoot me? Just because I wanted to stab you in the face because you like Prometheus? I have every right to stab you in the face for liking Prometheus. Every right.
Liker: Yes I will shoot you. No, you don't have the right to . . .
Hater: YOU WOULD SHOOT ME? But I'm right and you're wrong.
Liker: Dude, put the knife down. Right now. It's my opinion.
Hater: NO. It's not just a movie. I HATED . . .

Saw this last night, and wasn't a fan.
Did the ever explain what happened to the archaeologist guy who got the alien tequila from David?
From what I can remember, Dr. Tard the First was the guy freaked out about aliens, yet played "Let's poke the space cobra", then Redneck McBeardy got blasted in the face by the alien acid blood goo, and fell headfirst into the evil black goop, which somehow transformed him into Redneck McBeardy, Bath Salts o'steroids edition. Dr. Tard MD ended up staying dead, even though he got faceraped by the lil hugger snakey thingie.
I just can't remember what happened to the other guy.
Kind of annoyed that the space jockey turned out to be Space Handsome Squidward.
After reading up on some of the things I didn't get, I think the most offensive thing has to be space jesus. That's just... dumb. Not religiously, just as a general "What in the hell? Seriously? A 10 foot tall bald translucent Jesus?" kind of way.
Fassbender rocked though. I was wondering why he seemed to be channeling Peter O'Toole in the trailer and "Meet David" video, and now I know
So was I, but that was 2010. I let it go a while back.Kind of annoyed that the space jockey turned out to be Space Handsome Squidward.
Fortunately the filmmakers reached that conclusion themselves and decided against using it.After reading up on some of the things I didn't get, I think the most offensive thing has to be space jesus. That's just... dumb. Not religiously, just as a general "What in the hell? Seriously?
Perhaps the fact that it was not David's natural hair color set him off?
What's most interesting about that article is that there was a much longer conversation that was cut. I MUST SEE THIS.
Why would Scott have been so strongly about subtitling David's comments?
