I'm confused. This movie engenders a new debate. This is a new idea. ATS is the fertile ground for such a debate, and for such an idea to
But, it is other sites that debate this topic. And I can't get access to those sites because I don't have the right kind of e-mail account. I can
watch the debate, and while I'd love to chime in, I can't.
Many of you have been dismissive of this thread. I remember back when the Matrix was such a hot topic. And, it has nothing on this!!!
I am confused. Prometheus is the ripest ground for movie to theology to philosophy topic of a movie that has ever been created. Why oh why don't
you talk about this?
The movie has been destroyed on the internet. Many people talk about how the writer was horrible, the story is full of holes, etc. And I completely
disagree. I'd like to have a debate on the subject.
I was one of those people at first. I was very angry. I was pissed at how lazy the subject matter had been presented. It was as if the director and
writer were just there to cash in on the name and prequel because they could.
I have obviously changed my mind. I think that this movie could be the most deep/provacative/interesting/artsy type of sci-fi film ever created.
But, it may never come to fruition if the mass movement on the internet cannot be changed. The funding would just fade to nothing. And that's sad.
The idea's of the movie Prometheus are very profound. They cover the technocalypse, the matrix type of evolution of AI and android's, the possible
progenitor of life in the universe(a new topic altogether), our history with aliens, the bible, giants, nephilim, spaceships, the purpose of life,
GOD, JESUS, the human condition, hell, demons, angels, life after death, etc.
To see the ambition of this endevour is truly amazing. I see it. I am impressed.
But, where many see plot holes - I see hooks to sequels. I don't see any plot holes. I see things that beg our prognosis, our premonition, and our
Like with the Matrix movies, our discussion should be speculative, explorative, and fully debated.
We have all been a part of the sparks that kick off internet movements. You have all been a part of these internet movements at different times on
topics you have been invested.
Reconsider your thoughts on the movie. I truly think the movie was born of ATS in mind. I wouldn't be surprised if the writer and Ridley Scott were
adamant members of this site. The entire basis of the movie was right up the alley of ATS.
MY VOTE: The movie was absolute genius, and very artsy fartsy.
MY REVIEW: They should have marketed the movie as such, and not as an Alien Sci-Fi Horror flick. Which is why I think ppl are so angry with the
BTW: I originally posted this thread on the "Origin's and Creationism" Forum. They kicked it to the DEAD movie forum. I will go there and post
another thread with a link to this thread. Ppl thought I was a crazy LOL. Took me a while to explain my reason for a thread.
