So who should I sue for my $18 ? I don't remember the last time I shook my head so much in the theater​. What a dumb fucking movie. Way to take a giant steaming shit on the few things that were good about Prometheus.
Even if you set aside killing Shaw between movies - not that we should set that shit aside - I'm still flabergasted they dismissed the entire Engineer plotline between movies. Even though it's set there, this film had zero curiosity about them.
I watched an interview with Scott before this came out where he said he'd thought about what people didn't like about Prometheus and fixed it here. Specifically, it's got the original alien in it, while Prometheus didn't. It's pretty clear he didn't understand what people did and didn't like about Prometheus. I think this movie was a giant turd, but boy does Scott know how to make a turd in a pretty fascinating shape.
