Re: Prometheus - Blu-ray review

actually it's NOT the same engineer and crashed ship.

1. the engineer got chest bursted on the floor. the space jockey in Alien was in the cockpit
2. the planet is LV-223 in Prometheus... in Alien it's LV-426

Wow! That's some serious attention to detail there Mike. It sure looked like the same ship but if you say no then so be it. The movies are linked though.

Re: Prometheus - Blu-ray review

lol, I most definitely agree. they're both linked heavily. I'm one of the few people on blu-ray.com arguing that Prometheus IS a prequel (most people are using the argument that they are just in the same universe and have no connection really... I obviously disagree)

It is a prequel and I wish I could remember where I read it so I could provide a link. I want to say it was a critic review on Rotten Tomatoes but not exactly sure. The same article mentioned that Ridley Scott might make another film to tie up loose ends on the story.

Re: Prometheus - Blu-ray review

a sequel is planned and being worked on right now code named "Paradise"..... he's had intentions to create a trilogy since before the movie came out (it's why this movie seems like a 2 hour trailer for the next movie)

Thanks for that info. My only complaint with Promethius was the ending and if more movies are to follow I'll be all over them. Some real potential to make some awesome movies that could someday become classic must own movies. I personally am very intrigued by movies that touch on origins of life outside of religion. I love the movie Contact and think a trilogy here has some real potential.

Re: Prometheus - Blu-ray review

Boy, this thing has been done a lot. It will be interesting to see if they can put a new spin on it. Will have to have some very high teck stuff like speacial steel blades that the acid won't dissolve (ninja swords). Man I love ninja movies! Or maybe a mind control projectile that you fire at the beast & upon impact integrates into its nervous system which allows you to play it like a video game....just killing & maming other beasts! Ok, back to reality, sorry for that.

Re: Prometheus - Blu-ray review

Watched it last night...great movie audio and video wise. Don't really see the reasoning for the intro to the movie, Talking about Greek Gods, etc.....don't see how that all carry's through the movie. Unless the idea is just to bring up the idea of multiple beliefs in creation Greek gods, Christian beliefs (the cross and tattoos some of the crew have), and then the random darwin statement by a crew member. I understand they are hunting for "the answer" but throughout the movie there is no real resolution to any of it, (at least i dont think they substantiated it one way or the other throughout the plot). I did really like the movie over all
