In what universe would this trained professional start saying "coochie coochie coo" and all that to an alien life-form?
I was so pissed off at this film because visually it was stunning and there was so much there that was good and it really could have been a great film.
Unfortunately it was an OK film with some great ideas and elements.
It's all well and good saying that budget constraints and script issues were the cause of this film being as bad as it was.... and that if we just imagine a better film and use the visuals, it'll all be OK.
We have the film we have... that's the one they released and it's very, very poor and quite frankly ridiculous.
As I said, such a shame because the subject, themes, story and so on... were absolutely something which SHOULD have been and made for, a fantastic film.
I really hope the Director's cut is vastly, vastly different otherwise this suck-fest will not get any better.

Let me get this straight: you post regularly on a conspiracy theory message board yet you found the behavior of a character in a monster movie too unrealistic?
Maybe great ideas and elements do make it a great movie and you're just nitpicking. Seriously, it's the best science fiction movie released in years, if not decades.
That's not what I'm saying at all. I'm repeating what the actual stated intentions of the artists were. None of this is made up. It's straight from the horse's mouth. If you want to argue with the directors and writers about the nature of their own film, fine, but you won't win any arguments with me.
The filmmakers are very proud of their film, and art is a take-it-or-leave-it, you-either-get-it-or-you-don't kind of thing, and you CLEARLY don't get it. This thread is not for you unless you approach it with a mind open to the possibility that this movie is better than you esteem it to be.

Cinemablend.com? Never heard of it. I will go see if I can find what you refer to.

I think you've been reading cinemablend.com to get these ideas as their review has a lot of opinions the same as yours based on the many unknowns in the film.
Great film by the way waiting for bluray to come out.
