Hi, Watched Prometheus on Friday,but did I miss something.

Warning spoilers follows......

In the original alien film,the creator of the aliens is fossilised in the flight chair of his ship,in Prometheus he dies on the Prometheus escape pod.

So is this an error ,or did I miss something

Cheers

Artistic licence...

I can't wait to see it myself, Ridley Scott defined modern sci-fi for the big screen, everyone else followed the lead with Alien original.

I always watch them when they pop up on TV, last night on Ch4 as well as Lord of the Rings.. I've got square eyes this morning:)

I'm a big Ridley Scott fan - he knows how to make a film look good. I have copies of all his films, and I've lost count of the number of times I've watched Blade runner and Gladiator.

Prometheus, here I come.

Looks like some people have plenty of spare time on their hands :O)

Cannot recall the last time I went to the cinema, and I have lost count as to how many DVD's I own and purchase on a regular basis. One day I might even find some time to view one or two. I seem to deserve it?.

I work six days a week, and for a few hours most evenings, so I wouldn't say I had any more time on my hands than most people. The thing is, you make time to do the things you like doing.

WOW, the best Alien film yet!

I've just gotten back from the flicks, Peter O'Toole plays a magnificent part and it fits perfectly as a prequel with no missing holes skimed over. Why did it take him over 30 years to return to this subject? And the end left an opening for the survivor to make another film or two.

One other thing... in the original Alien, they all smoke like chimneys around the meal table which makes it very dated when watching it in this age of smoking taboos. Yet there is still a character that smokes cigars on the space ship.

I watched the movie and overall I am not very pleased. The effects were amazing but I didn’t like the act.

Last night, I watched a Scottish 15 minute TV program preview of PROMETHEUS...and the actors getting 'grilled'. It was a thrill to hear a Glasgow actress KATE DICKIE had taken part in the procedures, aka...FORD, in the film.

Peter O'Toole, Ridley Scott, Glasgow.... what a combination!
