Prometheus, what can I say, I just saw it last night.
This is a prequel to the movie Alien, and they screwed it up at every turn.
So why am I bashing a SciFi/Fantasy of any sort when I love them so? Well this is the best example of what not to do. In Alien, Aliens, Alien vs Predator, etc we have a well established time line, life cycle for the alien creature which Prometheus utterly ignores. Furthermore the mistakes they made were unforgivable. (Bob breaks into song: “Unforgivable that’s what you are.”)
So here is my list of things that they should never have done:
A. Broke cannon, what had been established in prior movies.
B. Turned the movie into a “Lets bash the stupid Christians at every turn.”
C. Respecting the beliefs of a non-specified Pagan religion, you don’t get it both ways.
D. Broke the laws of physics, again.
E. Turned the movie into a “Lets bash the stupid Gun Owners at every turn.”
F. Out of control robots, it has been done too often.
G. High tech multi billion dollar spaceships manned by untrained illiterates.
H. Made Corporation owners, ultra-evil, ultra-rich, greedy, stupid murderers.
I swear to God it is as if you got together six each, socially awkward, Maoist, bad writers who had never seen the movie Alien and gave them cart blanch.
To be honest I am a very poor third rate hack writer who could benefit from a good proof reader, spell checker and a good Editor, but I can do better than this.
