    Here's the hilarious training you'll need to board Prometheus | Blastr

    Though Prometheus is an epic sci-fi effort, most viewers would agree that some of the decision-making by the characters involved was a little, how do you say, dumb. But, according to this hilarious fan video, they were just trained that way. Spoilers ahead!

    From taking off their helmets in an alien ship, to trying to play with a wicked looking alien cobra, the crew of the Prometheus may not have been the brightest minds to send on a mission to find humanity's origin.

    With deep insights like "When you touch goo, you shouldn't have gloves on you," and "Don't wait: Investigate!" this video shows the extensive training the crack team of explorers may have gone through to make it into deep space.

    Check out the video below, and see if you could make the team

    Saw it last night. LOVED the visuals. Merely liked the story.

    But let me see if I've got this straight in regards to the origin of "The Perfect Organism," aka The Alien.

    David brings home a sample of some Engineer Secret Sauce, makes a nice cocktail with it for Doctor Dickhead. D.D. is infected and becomes a host for a very small parasitic animal, which he passes into Doctor Girlfriend. Small parasitic animal evolves incredibly rapidly in D.G.'s womb until she attempts what is essentially the most high-tech back-alley c-section ever. She thinks she's killed it inside the operating machine, only to find (fortunately for her, it turns out) that it has not only survived, but grown in size 1000 fold by the end of the movie. D.G. essentially sicks her "kid" (which looks like a GIANT face-hugger) on the attacking engineer, which it uses as a host to birth another unbelievably-rapidly-evolved life form that looks remarkably like The Alien.

    "Engineer's Bio-Weapon DNA" + Human DNA = Facehugger
    Facehugger DNA + Engineer DNA = The Perfect Organism's Ancestor

    Right??

    Okay...and now another question...

    WHAT THE **** DID THE GEOLOGIST TURN INTO?? I know his buddy the idiot biologist got a cobra down his throat and all that, but all I thought that happened to the geologist was a facebowl full of acid blood. How'd he turn into the crab-looking dude (reminded me of The Thing, actually) with superhuman strength that tried to take out everyone on the Prometheus??

    see...I think that's the elephant in the room. Lindelof/Scott and others are trying to excuse/hide flawed storytelling w/ethereal mumbo jumbo. It's very insincere if you ask me to pull the 'God(s) work in mysterious ways' card out every time a new plot flaw is discovered. And, in articles I read w/Lindelof, who came in and polished up the script, he has said outright that he told Ridley Scott he needed to give the audience more answers...so prior to his work on it it was even MORE vague. So yeah...

    I guess the really great thing about my experience with Prometheus last night was that we used the two free admission tickets we were given by Pacific Theaters for complaining to the manager VERY LOUDLY that the movie Green Hornet sucked so bad that there was no way that moviegoers should be expected to pay for it.

    Agree with all that you're saying. My co-worker argued this and I totally get it. The more I think about it the more annoyed I get. I still very much enjoyed the film, but there are so many things that make no sense.

    Was the superhuman dude really the guy who took the acid to the face? I assumed it was the guy who got the white snake down his throat (I believe it happened in the still of the night), because, well, that makes sense and it being the other guy makes no sense. But then, that's Hollywood.

    The creature that came out of the main chick's womb was not a facehugger, it was a giant white squid thing. The facehugger comes next in the lifecycle of the alien. The speed at which these things evolve is a little ridiculous, but then it has been the case since the very first movie.

    I still don't understand why the android felt the need to test the black goop on d-bag doctor.

    Ponied up the extra paper to see it in IMAX 3D. Only my second time paying for a 3D film. The first time was Tron: Legacy, and I was nonetoopleased with that, even though I enjoyed its visuals based upon my like of the original (just not in the two whole scenes that actually were 3D). Glad I did it again for Prometheus.

    I just have one question after reading through the thread: could the time used by Theron's character been used to better complete a swiss-cheese-like storyline? I ask because I think she didn't really need to be in the movie, at all.


    Although, her doing push-ups upon waking was a nice little piece of eye candy. :D

    I wanna watch it again but don't feel like paying another 20 bucks. Man cinemas are expensive these days.
