    This movie features some of the most retarded scientists in the history of film-making. 6 years 6 months ago

    The answer to some of the questions from numerous articles on the BluRay deleted scenes...

    The black goo is spoiler

    The Engineers take the goo and seed the universe as a kind of ritual sacrifice. Again, this isn't explicit, but it seems they do it because they can.

    All the Engineers spoiler

    Milburn's an entomologist (studies insects), and so loves snakes and doesn't mind baiting them. (Still stupid though)

    Holloway is grumpy because he wanted live engineers and is so, pissed off when spoiler

    spoiler

    Guy Pearce was cast because there was a dream sequence scripted involving David and his 40 year old self that wasn't included.

    Meredith Vickers spoiler

    spoiler

    The Captain and Vickers ended up hooking up due to the fact they had a few deleted scenes involving flirting that were prior to that scene.

    He then later spoiler because he had a military past which involved his running foul of a contamination outbreak, and knows the consequences of inaction.

    This answers some but not all of the questions here: http://www.juliansanchez.com/2012/06/11/whats-wrong-with-prometheus-a-partial-list Most questions are either due to sloppy plotting, or just overemphasis on the thematics: life, creation, father vs son, identity, purpose, origins and final destination, the unknown, the insignificant nihilism of creation and destruction, loss and transcendence, and religious mythology...the only difference is Alien didn't make us *have* to think in order to explore its' own logic.

    My old and very extensive review is at the top of page 5. http://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/prometheus/comments/?page=5

    First 3 minutes with Fassbender by himself watching "Lawrence of Arabia" and playing basketball is the best part. 6 years 3 months ago
