Rofl. Are you serious? “Alien” was a masterpiece. Prometheus is just…garbage.
Just to point out a few masterpieces and gems from Prometheus:
Hmm, great idea to start an expedition to another planet based on flimsy evidence.
What’s the first thing you do when you explore ancient ruins on an alien world? You take off your helmet and throw a party while running around like an utter imbecile. Indians dropped like flies when the first settlers brought nice little things such as flu and pocks - and they were merely fellow humans from a different continent. If you think your immune system can handle the germs you’ll find on alien corpses and alien worlds, you’re either a hopeless optimist - or an idiot.
Map guy manages to get lost.
Biologist craps his pants at the mere thought of alien life. First time he sees an alien creature that loosely resembles a cobra, he wants to pet her. Insert genius meme here.
Ripley MKII can run a Marathon seconds after a cesarean.
A crashing ship is rolling in a straight line towards Ripley MKII and Vickers (or whatever her name was). They decide it might be a great idea to try to outrun the ship instead of simply running sideways or stepping aside.
Then there’s this utter disregard for facts such as the theory of evolution and there’s also the excessively overrepresented Space-Jesus theme…and no real connection to “Alien” either. There doesn’t have to be one but I think you get the point.
Wanna see a true masterpiece? Go watch “Interstellar”, or “The Martian”. They even have credible scientists in their movies!
