I wrote about Prometheus the other day and how I enjoyed it. The more I've thought about the film, the more my opinion of it has lessened. There are just too many things about it that are stupid or make no sense (even if they are to await a sequel). For instance:
Why do the scientist act so stupidly when they encounter exotic animals and black goo?
If the Alien is born at the very end, then why is an Alien creature carved in stone in the room with the big human head in a relief that looks something like a place of worship?
I still think it is visually stunning, had promising conceptual and aesthetic qualities, and that Michael Fassbender was riveting to watch.
