  1. I am on the side of  the theory that the Engineers and the Elephantine Being are 2 separate races. Looking at the way the Engineer fashion the helmet to appear as the Elephantine Race points to 2 possibilities: 1) They stole/adopted./appropriated technology from the Jockeys 2) The Jockeys are the Engineer's God/Higher Power. The statues in front of the pilot room, the helmet are display of cult-like respect.
    An entirely baseless and pointless "theory".
  2. Believe what you will, but they both fit into those blasted suits however differently sized and both use the orrey just as good.  Whether or not they have elephant trunks for real underneath is irrelevant.


    Don't like the Engineer talking, I think it's better if he's silent.

    I'm still of the opinion that the Engineer and the Space Jockey in 'Alien' are actually completely different races - while the Engineers made us, perhaps the Space Jockeys made them, but not in their own image, and the Engineers are merely mimicking their creators' technology while creating in their own image.

    This is making me want to wait for an "extended cut" blu-ray.

  4. Now the question is what is the ''paradise'' scene from the extras. Did they really shot the engineer home world?

    Possibly just an extended ending scene with more dialogue between David and Shaw while at LV-223. That's the impression I got from the commentary.

    The Damon Lindelof/Jon Spaihts audio commentary has been released online attached to a Russian iTunes version of the film. Google it or PM.

    They talk about a lot of stuff from the early scripts. They mention a "Paradise" scene too. A deleted scene where Shaw asks David what it is that the Engineer said to him during their conversation (it seems like there were 2 script pages worth of Engineer/David dialogue). David tells her that the Engineer told him that they were not from there [LV-223] but "Paradise". This comment is made by Lindelof towards the end of the film when David contacts Shaw after having fought the Engineer.

    Worth looking for?

    Yeah, it has quite a few new bits.
  5. I don't really understand what was Ridley thinking when he butchered this movie.

    Nothing you specified really equates to "butchering" it. Most likely, he was thinking the same kind of thing which led to the cocoon scene's removal from 'Alien' - pacing and rhythm. Whether you agree with him is a different matter.

    Honestly, everything I've seen, so far, just seems relatively trivial. There's nothing which completely changes a scene's interpretation or anything like that.

  7. Jeezus. I think they even filmed the whole dialogue but cut it. Even in the deleted scene we have now, David doesn't tell the engineer what Weyland said making the engineer reaction seem out of place,also the engineer is at one point sitting low,then all of a suden he is on his feet. I don't really understand what was Ridley thinking when he butchered this movie. I'm beginning to think the script isn't as f**ked up as the movie makes it out to be. Now the question is what is the ''paradise'' scene from the extras. Did they really shot the engineer home world?

  9. eh. Robert Rodriguez has a funny way of going about producing films due to the insane number of projects he has in his hands.. the Sin City sequel is being filmed this year... and the original came out in 2005... we'll inevitably see another Predator film.... it'll just take a few more years. :P
    You keep tellin' yourself that. ;) For something that only had a $40 million budget and made roughly $137 worldwide, tripling it's budget (which Prometheus failed to do), no one at Fox seems to care much.

    But apparently a mega-expensive film with a $200 million plus budget w/advertising that doesn't even have that level of profit is apparently seriously being fast-tracked for another $200 million plus budget sequel that would maybe lose money.

    Keep dreaming, boys.

    Prometheus did triple the budget it had.it's at 400 million now
  10. Since he was ordered to wipe out humanity 2000 years ago maybe that lash out was in fear.  Fear that the children might be almost on par technologically with his own race.  He sees what we are capable of, so maybe he is starting to imagine the weapons we have developed over the last 2000 years.

    Maybe that evolution was what he was sent to earth to purposely disrupt.  Seeing his failure the backlash is in pure rage.

    Considering our level of technology, all that time ago, that makes them a race of severely paranoid dicks. :-\

    Deleted scenes that NEED re-including

    I honestly haven't seen anything which needs inclusion. Nothing, so far, is a deal-breaker.

    Why the hell did Ridley remove the Engineer vs Shaw scene?

    Don't know, but it didn't seem necessary. Makes the final confrontation a bit longer and that's about it. Some interesting Engineer reactions to what it finds, but... Eh. Nothing revolutionary.
  11. Oh boy, I would have enjoyed Prometheus far more had these scenes been included. I might even have rated this movie a solid 6.9! (It still needs a re-shoot to correct the abysmal Milburn and Fifield shambles).

    Deleted scenes that NEED re-including:

    Vickers and Janek: YES
    Extended Engineer vs Weyland: YES
    Extended Engineer vs Shaw: YES

    Why the hell did Ridley remove the Engineer vs Shaw scene? It plays out like an echo of the dining room 'Ash encounter' from ALIEN (but with a jingling chandelier instead of bouncy toys!). I also love the way the Engineer is revealed to be not completely devoid of emotion and yearns for innocence, music, love when he stares at the giant viewscreen.

    Plus, as @ThisBethesdaSea mentioned, the scene works so well because of the SILENCE. It almost has a 'The Shining' quality to it.

    I guess a Special Edition is now inevitable.

    $$$$$$$$$$$$$
  12. From the deleted scenes and the finished movie I'm left with the impression that they never knew quite what it was they wanted out of the Engineers as actual characters in the film. Probably would've been better off staying dead.
    Yep - I kind of agree. I think it's ultimately a difficult premise to get right and to make work. You want to portray these 'God' like creatures who have the power to create or destroy in an instant, they have to make their moral code ambiguous and are the fulcrum of the movie... However, they don't actually get that much screen time. The concept/notion of the engineer race is more scary than the reality on screen. Very much like the xeno, the more culture/context you give them, the less scary they become... IMHO.

  14. That's why the build-up works so well- he walks in calmly, surveys his surroundings, actually seems to be interested in what he sees, and when he sees her, you can tell he's not lashing out because Grrrr Monster Argh- there's clearly something going on in his mind.

    I can't see that... I just see more of the giant carrot man from The Thing From Another World and or Boris Karloff's monster.
    And in the first two Karloff Frankenstein films, there was something going on his mind.
    Same with The Thing From Another World and the Predator. Sure a sentient being, but they hardly come across as super intelectuals capable of kick-starting 'life as we know it'. Perhaps they are not supposed to be all powerful/intelectual... but I thought that was one of the weaker elements of the movie. I don't think this is particularly helpded by the extended version as it makes the engineers behaviour seem more irrational and less inteligent.
  15. Damn now that link to the deleted scenes has been removed. I really want to show these to my fiance. Can anyone help me out. Maybe somebody here dowloaded them or knows where to go to watch the scenes. Thanks guys!
  16. I am no scientist - clearly - but I always assumed 223 was in the same system as 426.

    Why they didn't terraform 223 is a good question, but maybe the intervening events of Prometheus (the death of all hands, including Weyland and daughter, and whatever scant information returns to Earth) and/or subsequent sequels could explain it.  Or maybe they did and we just don't know it.

    As for the Engineer, I inferred from the film that his mission had been to head to Earth and cleanse the planet and that, yes, he was outraged by the evolution of a species which, I suspected, was never intended to get that far before being harvested.  When he saw humans had infiltrated his installation, he was infuriated; he attacks them, then gets ready to head off and complete the mission.  As Scott said about the derelict in Alien over the course of so many interviews and commentaries over the years, the juggernaut is a bomber and the Engineer/jockey its pilot.

    I agree here as well. We see a lot more of the engineer and to me it is a good thing imo. I think it is good to warm up to the engineer now, because I'm sure we'll see a lot more of them in the sequel interacting and doing more possibly.

    Thought Engineer's were portrayed well in all cut footage.
