Prometheus (And Other Tangents) – AvPGalaxy Podcast #49

We have just uploaded the 49th episode of the Alien vs. Predator Galaxy Podcast (right-click and save as to download) and it’s the one I’ve been dreading! Our latest episode (recorded in April) sees RidgeTop and myself joined by special guest star Andrew E. C. Gaska discussing the highs and lows of Prometheus with several other assorted tangents.

 Prometheus (And Other Tangents) - AvPGalaxy Podcast #49

We discuss some of the great things about Prometheus such as David and the c-section scene and we discuss some of the things we found frustrating about the film. Also included are some tangents about the worst films in the series, Alien 3’s visual effects, RidgeTop’s poor taste in films and my inability to judge distances!

I’d like to thank Andrew E. C. Gaska for joining us for this episode. Andrew is a writer who has worked with Titan on properties such as Planet of the Apes, the Creative Director for BLAM! Ventures (check them out here!) and also serves as a Franchise Consultant for 20th Century Fox on the Alien, Predator and Planet of the Apes series.

The 50th episode is currently planned to be focused around Alien: Covenant! We also have some Alien: Covenant interviews lined up for your listening pleasure! You can also listen to any of our previous episodes in the Podcast section under the News tab on the main menu. We hope you enjoy!

    Enjoyed this one, thanks. I watched Prometheus again this morning (jn preparation for tonight's cinema trip), and you really nail it when you describe it as frustrating. There's loads of good stuff in there, but a fair bit of total nonsense as well. It's as if they were shooting from a not-quite-final script. Just one more draft could have ironed out a lot of the bugs and made for a much more satisfying movie.

    All the recent ones (the last 2 or so years) have a forum thread for each episode. Best way to find them if is to the find the news post on the front page, click Forum Topic at the bottom and it'll take you to the right place. You'll generally find other podcast related news articles in the Related News Posts box under the article too. Hope that helps.

    Is there a place to discuss the podcasts? I'd love to see a discussion page dedicated to each new episode.  There are many topics addressed in these as I'm going back thorough, that I would love to see some extended discussion on.

    Great podcast lads, really enjoyed that one.

    Im a bit of a Prometheus apologist as i absolutely love the film. Sure it has some issues but they just don't detract from my enjoyment of the film.

    Im looking forward to your podcast on AC. Keep up the good work, love listening to you guys do a bang up job. Cheers

    Thanks for the kind words, Derelict. Glad you enjoyed it.  :) There's plenty of stuff I do like in Prometheus too but the overall frustration from the experience weights over in for me.

    I'm looking forward to the next one too! I'm interested to hear what my fellow staffers have to say on it!

    "Not supposed to be a bash fest"

    No problem. Its more analysis I enjoy listening to because there is  proper explanation for why.

    Fantastic! Glad it's not just coming across as slagging off the film! I always shy away from talking about Prometheus too much because I find it boring listening to people wrag on about it and I generally find it boring talking about it because I inevitably whine about the film so I kinda put this one off. lol Glad it's worked out okay though! I thought it came out quite well when I was listening to it while editing.

    Not finished but:


    "No one seemed surprised about all these discoveries"

    Exactly

    "everybody assumes everything"

    Good point . Never thought of that.

    "Not supposed to be a bash fest"

    No problem. Its more analysis I enjoy listening to because there is  proper explanation for why.

    Great podcast lads, really enjoyed that one.

    Though as much i love Sean Harris as Fifeild and he did a really good job as the Fifeild zombie i wish we got the alternate version of his transformation and i would loved it if the film kept the scene with Janek and Vickers in the lifeboat, I thought that was great scene.

    And now i have 24 hours to wait to see Covenant . Oh cruel world.

    Im looking forward to your podcast on AC. Keep up the good work, love listening to you guys do a bang up job. Cheers

    Black Goo:
    Pure form ingested - Instant molecular breakdown into particle form - has varying effect on whatever bio life form it comes in contact with to create new life.  Also blessed with *modified ejaculate that you won't get to pass on...unless you have some great timing skills.  Since ovaries/eggs were not necessary, I can only imagine what anal would have done. 

    Diluted form ingested (drop in a glass of alcohol - alcohol which could have further impact) - Slows molecular breakdown...etc. etc. as above; unless you are burnt to a crisp first.

    Contact with Black goo - transformation, subject dependent (biological life-form only), with uncontrollable rage.

    *modified ejaculate is species dependent.  Make humans shoot squid.  Engineers shoot ??

    squid grows to trilobyte, face-hugs host and produces another alien life form.  Engineer = Decon.  Human = ??
