I know Prometheus is supposed to be a prequel to Alien, but I don’t think it servers the film well to compare it to Scott’s original film. Prometheus is definitely a much more ambitious film thematically than Alien. I like them both, but while they exist in the same universe, they tell very different kinds of stories.
Looking forward to your thoughts on it!
Thanks TFC. I agree Doc. I think the film lends itself to a discussion of the two films given its place within that universe, but the contrast is indeed stark in many respects and they are different. I don't disagree.
To me, PROMETHEUS has it both ways, it's a prequel and a stand-alone film. As the screenwriter has said, at the film's end it can really split off in two ways:1. right into ALIEN2. into a sequel where the surviving crew member and the android go off to find the Engineer's homeworld.
Hello J.D.I must tell you, as you'll soon read, I did not see those remarks by the screenwriter, but apparently understood exactly that point. I agree.I tried to write my reflection s on this thing down as soon as I saw the film before reading a whole lot about it. I didn't want to influence my take on it.Cheers for that input J.D.. I couldn't agree more.
