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.
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 Do the xenomorphs breathe oxygen? It only has two years to survive in the life boat. (1) Comments
