'God' basically does whatever it wants.
One of the clunkiest lines I thought was David's "doesn't every child want to kill their parents?" - eh... no. Not sure where the heck that came from.
And "Every King has their reign and then he dies" - does anyone actually speak like that????
And I thought the same thing about David saying that when I first heard it, however it's probably supposed to clue us in on the fact he's just nucking futs. Not everyone thinks that, but perhaps he does, so he assumes people do as well.
"If you can't be with the one you love, love the one your with" is still my favorite scene to quote from. My friend Danny and I use "You a a robot Vickers?" as a line when we see a pretty girl. It worked for the guy that flys the ship, why not us?
That was the thing I went to. I think I was meant to be in hypersleep at one stage but spent the time being super beaky around the vehicles.
I also got told I looked 'ill' at one point and ordered to visit the ship infirmary. When I got there I explained that I may have inadvertantly stepped in some peculiar black goo. The Shaw look-alike looked at me oddly and sent me to some kind of space-yoga class - needless to say, I promptly 'escaped'.
Exactly what? David's ambiguity can be used to excuse poor writing?
While Lindelof is a genius at getting work, he's not a genius when it comes to the work. If you keep tabs on entertainment news, he gets more jobs as a "script doctor" than an actual writer brought in from day one. With Prometheus, Lindelof was hired because everyone decided late in the game to turn Jon Spaihts' original script from a direct alien prequel into a loosely connected spinoff instead. Even though I have been nagging on Scott's last decade of work, the problems that are brought into Prometheus are without a doubt Lindelof's contributions. His effort in making this film more of a stand alone piece probably resulted in the creation of life on earth, meaningless religious undertones, characters acting stupid, Weyland wanting to live forever, and probably my most loathed bit, turning the Space Jockeys into handsome Squidwards who just look the way they did in ALIEN because they were wearing a freaking suit.
#2. The time between the last sentry fight and the actual cutting of the power is too long. Alien acid has at least a lifespan of 50 seconds, yet by the time the power gets cut, a couple of hours have already passed. Plus if the power was cut in the hallways, why was the power not cut anywhere else like the hallway that Ripley and Hicks escape into? Heck, the elevator still works. They only cut power to the areas where our characters were held off in, Medical and Operations.

I'm saying from the Aliens standpoint..The Alien was probably killing anything it saw as a threat to the unborn queen..After it's born and at a size it could protect itself and start laying eggs, it has to do is wait..It has no idea that there are possibly no other lifeforms on the planet
I finally saw it today. I spent a lot of the movie thinking everyone took the worst option available in any situation. From the moment the engineer drank that stuff and fell into the waterfall. Then the whole weirdness with Shaw getting pregnant, having a c-section to get her baby squid out, which then grew into a giant face hugger. That nobody seemed to notice, including the life support system. I still enjoyed it even with the weak writing.
