Is it Crudd-up or Crude-up?

Kinda damages my opinion of Claire Danes as a perfect angelic being more than anything.

Cheating on and leaving your 7-month pregnant wife is not far behind though.

I'm sure she had her reasons. I still love her.

Uh I think it's pretty far behind from both those things. It's a scumbag move no doubt, but not even in the same ballpark.


At least she didn't kill herself, or have him murdered. Although I am sure she is scarred for life.

Billy Crudup fucked an alien.

Aside from stupid people doing stupid things


Am I the only person who has no problem with them doing stuff like sticking their heads in the eggs? It's an Alien movie. They basically have to do that or there's no film. IMO that's kind of the price of admission to horror/creature flicks like this--someone has to do something very stupid to get the ball rolling.

Nah. Competent heroes make the monster more impressive. I want a crew that does everything right and still can't handle it because it's just too awesome.

One stupid decision is forgivable, maybe two, but constant idiocy is unacceptable.

It also helps if the characters do something stupid because of some demonstrated character flaw like arrogance or inexperience. But otherwise intelligent characters acting stupid just to get the plot lurching to the next setpiece is shit writing.


I actually wrote this before I saw the movie, and I still agree with it, but I agree this one was a little worse in that area as well.

I really enjoyed the middle, David-centric part of this a lot, but my favorite part of it and Prometheus has really been some of the designs. When they first go into the ruins with David is just really impressive.

This movie is exactly a Lore episode of Star Trek, but with gore.

They beam down to the planet as soon as they get the oxygen all-clear. No intelligence gathering necessary.

One android is less human, but more moral and...somehow...actually more human. The other, I mean...is just Lore. He's just Lore.

Alien genocide happens off camera, before the episode starts.

90% of the crew actively pursues death with every choice they make.

There isn't enough Patrick Stewart.

What a predictable damn ending. Like, I predicted it before they even left the planet. So disappointing

Just watched this tonight and from the perspective of someone who isn’t a full-on xenomorph fanboy I thought it was great. Fassbender was the standout for sure. Would have preferred a non-cgi alien but it didn’t ruin anything for me overall.
