Default Ridley Scott talks Prometheus *spoilers*

What everyone assumed to be true, Scott confirmed. The Engineers created humanity, guided us through life, eventually disapproved of us, sent down an Engineer ("Jesus") to set us straight, and we crucified him.

http://geektyrant.com/news/2012/6/11...is-it-con.html

So that answers one plot hole ("Why do the Engineers want to kill us?") out of the big bunch.

SPOILERS


So then we created a robot who then used us to create an alien who killed God. So does that mean the alien is God now? Are we God now? Is Michael Fassbender's head God now?

I thought the liquid stuff that killed everyone was God.

I'm pretty sure the movie posits that Ridley Scott is God. That's the only way you can explain the plot of the film.

So tired of analyzing this movie, it isn't even funny any more. It failed on the basic level of film making, for all it`s special effects.

You shouldn't have to look for deep meaning into every characters actions, but you`re almost forced to, to make any sense of it.

Studio: Hey, Damon, this Lost script is great, cool - love it. But it makes no sense at all - what gives?
DL: Erm, it's the black gas. Yeah, the black smoke did it.
Studio: Cool! You're the best.

Studio: Hey, Damon, love the Alien: Engineers script. But seriously dude, it makes no friggin' sense whatsoever. How do we explain this sh*t?
DL: Got it - black liquid! That's what, like, does everything. Or at least whatever we want it to. Or whatever.
Studio: Whoa DL - I like it.

Studio: Yo Damon, where we at with the new Alien Christ Superstar script?
DL: I was thinking maybe we could centre it around a black solid. Yeah, this, like, rectangle. And here's the cool bit - you start at the dawn of man, with like monkeys, and they touch the black solid and that's how they become humans.
Studio: Jesus - that's great? Why didn't anyone think of that before?


(and yes, I am just jealous...)

The director shouldn't need to come out months after the film has been released to explain it basic plot lines.

You failed Ridley. You failed.

I actually thought that part was obvious from the film and didn't need explaining, only confirmation.

Everything else, though, well that's a different story.

It was a great looking film, but didn't really have a great deal to say, which is a problem when the film looks like it would.
