Prometheus The black goo made worms evil killer vagina cobras, made Calloway into a sad emotional zombie, made the geologist into an evil super ninja zombie, made Shaw's baby into a squid, made engineers into dust, made life on earth. 10,000 uses for black goo to fill writers block in movies!

Prometheus When exploring the facility the team found no kitchen, restrooms, living quarters, not even dropped weapons or extra space suits or anything? Just a bunch of dead engineers piled up. (0) Comments
Prometheus In order for Shaw to access the surgery room and make her own custom caesarian, she had to hit 2 other crew-members on the head with a blunt metal object. Those two crew-members will 2 hours later join Shaw for another mission in the alien cavern and none of them will ever mention that Shaw used to have an alien baby in her stomach, that they were savagely attacked, or that they can’t walk straight anymore since their brains started to leak from their nostrils.

I know that in the theatrical release of Alien, Ridley Scott took out a scene where Lambert slaps Ripley after they get back from the alien ship. Wanted there to be an unspoken tension between the two. I was going to say this was a similar thing but I think it's really just shitty screenwriting.
Prometheus The dead engineers failed to complete their mission of destroying the earth 2000 years ago. The Promethius destroyed the engineer's ship that tried to fullfill the mission of killing the humans when they woke him up. So the earth is safe once again, since it seems the other engineers think the earth was probally destroyed. They haven't sent any other engineers to check on the mission. So now the scientist lady decides to go to the engineer's home planet. Wait! Now they will know for sure the "Destroy Earth" mission wasn't completed. Maybe they forgot about the Earth mission? Thanks lady, for putting the Earth back in danger! (0) Comments
Prometheus A trillion dollar mission, the lives of the entire crew, the success of the entire mission, and the ship's well being. All of these things based on one fact, that a single man-made android didn't malfunction or break during the humans two-year hyper sleep. (1) Comments
Prometheus The floating, flying, mapping orbs seemed a little too advanced even for this future. Nothing else in the movie had anti-gravity technology. The promethius used rockets to land. Even the engineer's ship used rockets. They got around in wheeled vehicles. The scientist in the movie claimed to have invented the floating orbs. Wow, he discovered ant-gravity and engineless propulsion. He kept one heck of a secret. He should have been the richest man in the world! (4) Comments
Yeah that's a bad mistake to make in a scifi. I think they could have closed that WTF gap if they gave the orbs some obvious propulsion characteristics. Like smoke or propellers or something. Still doesn't offset the fact that the owner/inventor isn't able to use their survey data to navigate himself out of a cave that has very few intersections.
