i havent seen many recent movie theater movies but "prometheus" was one of my favorite movies ive seen in a while.... the subject matter, questions,
those opening landscape shots, the technology and aesthetics of the ship,, the deep one liners, and I think theres a decent chance there may be truth
to the notion this film depicts... I liked the showing of the style of the uber advanced aliens technology, their holographic maps of the universe,
think about it,,, there are probably millions of diverse species of advanced life doing similar things, zipping around the universe creating
histories.... i didnt mind the flute,, at first i questioned it, but then thought maybe it is showing a primal connection to mans adherence to beauty
and harmony, propertion,, which can be found in music,,,, something that can link us to advanced beings,, they progressed all that way and still have
an appreciation for the controlling and ordering of vibrations of sound........
also I wasnt sure about why the advanced alien dude was so quick to be brutish and violent.... but i later thought that either, yea he didnt care and
just wanted thee pests off his ship...... or i thought could it be that whatever was in those containers was in possession over that supreme alien,, i
got the idea remembering his eyes are black,,, and how that black ooze can posses people like the other 2 dudes from Prometheus ship........also i
think this leads into thoughts of dynamic forces,good and evil,.... the black goo stuff turned into ugly and violent creatures, like the alien the
chick gave birth to... and something did happen to jeopardize the human like god like planet seeders,,, it shows some type of conflict,,, whos right
or wrong? or does the winner take all?
near the beginning of the movie i think david asks the chick how much she would give up to find her answers,,, cut to a few days later everyones dead,
and she went through birthing an alien..... still longs to go on......
also i noticed the theme of birth and death, reproduction, father son......... the old guy and cherlize theron, talking about the natural order a king
reigns and then dies..... the chick who gave birth to the alien..... her alien child saves her life which i thought was cool,,,, the guy in the
begginig who sacrifices himself into the waterfalll,,,, this reminded me of the ancient creation myths of gods getting killed by their children and
other weird imagery.. gods sacrificing themselves for their creation,,,, a father sacrificing his time and energy for his succeeding son...
I believe i gathered more from the film as well these are just some quick things i can think of now, but if youd like to further discuss the film id
be down, for i truly enjoyed it and had me thinking the whole time.
