    As for me I was lucky to see in IMAX 3D which was jaw dropping. I ****ing loved it! I'm all about origins of humans/earth and alternative history so this was right up my alley in so many ways. I had so many damned questions after the movie that couldn't really sleep afterwards and I can't wait to see it again this weekend.

    I got into a big discussion with one of my co-workers about the film (he hated it obviously) and he brought up all the points about how it was lazy script writing, too many things not answered, characters motivations were hard to decipher, etc etc. And I get where they're coming from, but for me personally these issues meant nothing to what ideas Ridley Scott was trying to present. Did he use some shortcuts? Yeah, I can say that he did, but the overall piece and what he says about life, creation, and death are much bigger than what he chose to squeeze in a 2hr movie.

    Lastly, I've learned a great lesson in tempering my expectations about movies I get excited about. I watch the trailer a maximum of 3 times and I read NOTHING about it until I see it for myself. That's not to say I don't appreciate all of the great posts by people here, it's just that I get to them afterwards.

    As far as sequel is concerned, I'm too busy geeking out about this film and re-watching Alien and Aliens to care. Best movie I've seen this year hands down.
    What a fantastic write-up in that link! Goddamn, now I need to see it again.

    Saw the movie myself last night with gescom. I enjoyed it pretty thoroughly, and for the most part gave it a pass with regards to the sometimes silly exposition mostly because I didn't think there much opportunity to do it better in that short a time span. So I'll forgive Elba's revelation kind of coming out of left field and all that.

    I feel the same regarding all the unanswered questions. You just can't bring **** like that up in a 2 hour movie and expect to cover all the bases. I'm really hoping that a sequel does happen so things can be answered, but even if one never comes I think this movie stands up pretty well.

    The cinematography was great, Fassbender was great, blah blah blah. I'm really glad Ridley Scott made a movie I liked again. It's been almost a decade now and I'd almost given up on him.

    I saw it in 2D, so hopefully I can get out to see it in 3D IMAX before it leaves...

    Seriously cool clips. If I procrastinate and miss this in the theater I'll kick my own ass up and down the block.

    As well you should. Whatever the weaknesses of the plot, visually it is stunning. NOT the kind of movie where catching on Blue Ray later will get you 90% of the experience. Unless you have an IMAX 3D theater at home, in which case, go ahead and procrastinate.

    Adgy, I'll see it with you in IMAX 3D.

    I also saw it in 2D and I think I did the visuals a disservice. Besides which, I wanna see it again because I didn't think it was all that spectacular, storywise. I feel like I musta missed something.

    Find Out What David Said to the Engineer in PROMETHEUS

    Obviously spoilers for Prometheus follow.

    You may recall a pivotal scene towards the end of Prometheus in which David (Michael Fassbender), a very old Peter Weyland (Guy Pearce), Elizabeth (Noomi Rapace) and a few goons decide it’s a great idea to wake up the last surviving Engineer for a father/son chat. He comes out of hypersleep, David says something to him in the Engineer’s language, and the Engineer proceeds to rip everyone to pieces. The dialogue between David and the Engineer isn’t subtitled, but now Dr. Anil Biltoo of the SOAS Language Centre in London, who served as the Linguist Teacher on Prometheus, has revealed exactly what it was that David said in an interview with The Bioscopist (via Ropes of Silicon):

    “This man is here because he does not want to die. He believes you can give him more life.”

    Most people figured that David must have said something incredibly offensive that triggered said Engineer’s rage, but this interaction was actually a small part of a larger conversation between David and the Engineer that was cut from the film. My interpretation of the scene in the context of the film was that it didn’t matter what David said to the Engineer, he was going to kill the humans anyway. He had just been awoken from a super long nap by this pesky little offspring that he and his people had already deemed worthy of extermination, so why wouldn’t he murder them and get the hell out of there?

    Screenwriter Damon Lindelof admitted that the film originally had subtitles for the scene, but Scott felt strongly about not including them (Lindelof says he speaks at length about this on the DVD commentary). The director told Steve that the Blu-ray of Prometheus will include 20 – 30 minutes of deleted scenes, so hopefully we’ll get to see the extended David/Engineer conversation subtitles and all when the disc is released. Until then, hit the comments to discuss how the revelation of David’s words might impact your interpretation (if at all) of why the Engineer’s Rampage was initiated.
