    Wasn't Michael Biehn considered a pretty boy? I'm sure just about every Aliens/Terminator-era article refers to him as the boy next door.

    He certainly was, but he was gruff in Aliens, and just a little pretty in Terminator. I guess it comes down to which one you can picture fitting better into a Calvin Klein commercial. ;D
    The guy looks great even when mustachioed (Tombstone)... err, I mean, I find Biehn ... admirable looking ...  :laugh:

    Find when I've EVER written that and maybe you'll be on to something. From the beginning I've held a fair view of the film, citing my concerns yet remaining positive your characterization is a gross misinterpretation...but oh well. Black and white it is....

    The pot calling the kettle black.

    You have twisted my words numerous times and have even said that the women on this forum seem more snarky.  Whenever somebody brings something up that they don't like and you don't share the same views, you're all up in arms and say it's tedious.  So you can cite your concerns but we can't cite ours?

    I'm calling BULLSHIT on this clip...WHERE was all THIS??

    EXT. PROMETHEUS. SPACE

    The ship then enters the planet's atmosphere and is quickly surrounded by burning heat. The ship now descends into the PLANET like a fireball.

    INT. CONTROL ROOM

    Everyone and everything is now shaking due to turbulence. The protective shutters are now bright red. 

    INT. PASSENGER ROOM

    as everyone closes their eyes as the strong turbulence shakes them, ELIZABETH begins whimpering. HOLLOWAY reaches out and grabs her hand.

    EXT. PROMETHEUS. DAY

    The large craft speeds through the Atmosphere it is still engulfed in a fireball. As it speeds down the fire fades and the brightly lit craft.

    INT. CONTROL ROOM. DAY

    Suddenly the shaking stops and the shutters begins to go back to it's normal grey color.

    CHANCE
    That's us in sir

    JANEK
    Open the shutters

    RAVEL activates a button which opens the shutters.
    They can now see the cloudy, grim mountainous landscape. Through the large 250 inch windscreen a mountain taller than Mount Everest can be seen getting closer.

    JANEK
    Shit!

    CHANCE
    Ravel move this f**ker!

    RAVEL
    I'm trying

    EXT. PROMETHEUS. DAY

    The PROMETHEUS pulls up missing the mountain by only a hundred or so yards. The ship then passes it and then starts speeding down the other side of the mountain. It is speeding through the dense clouds.
    The PROMETHEUS leaves a long chem trail behind as it speeds down toward the PLANET'S surface toward the Himalayas type mountainous landscape.

    INT. CONTROL ROOM. DAY

    JANEK
    Ravel you're going too fast! Slow down!

    RAVEL
    I'm trying to!

    RAVEL yells as he pulls back his flight stick.

    EXT. PROMETHEUS. DAY

    The ship then speeds through the middle of these towering canyons of mountains.
    We now have a P.O.V of the ships journey. We are speeding in between towering canyons at a highly dangerous and fast speed. Suddenly there is a DEAD END. We are heading for the face of another large mountain.

    INT. CONTROL ROOM. DAY

    JANEK
    Ravel?

    RAVEL
    I know

    JANEK
    Jesus!

    EXT. PROMETHEUS. DAY

    As the PROMETHEUS speeds toward the face of the mountain a hole can be seen on the mountain.
    As we again looks through the ships P.O.V we now head directly toward this hole and enter in a matter of seconds. We are speeding through this narrow cave complex and a small dot of light can be seen in the dark distance. As we get closer and closer the dot of light gets bigger and bigger and eventually we enter it.
     We are now outside the back of the mountain and we are no longer facing any mountains and but only clouds. A birds eye view of the ship reveals it is 20,000 feet above the rocky ground surface. We can see large strange MURALS of patterns much like the NAZCA lines.

    INT. CONTROL ROOM. DAY

    JANEK
    Are we close?

    JANEK
    Just a mile from destination. Engines are slowing down sir

    JANEK
    Okay take us down nice and slow

    EXT. PROMETHEUS. DAY

    The PROMETHEUS slows down and it's engines change direction and stops completely.
    The ship's engines are now vertical and it begins to land toward the rocky surface. The engine's create a sand storm below as it lands. Large landing gears arrive from the engines and lands the ship gently to the surface. The ship is sitting directly on top a large Nazca like path. The engines slowly die out and eventually stop. Surrounding the PROMETHEUS is a mine field of sharp weird cone shaped rocks.

    INT. CONTROL ROOM. DAY

    Everyone is quiet as they all stare out at the terrain.

    JANEK
    I need a damn raise!

    lol!!!!

    "tolerating all the CGI in this film"

    A film that comparatively uses way less then any other releasing on this scale. I can't wait until this releases just so people will shut the frak up about this tedious nonsense.

    And I wish people will let other people air their own opinions, even if they may not be, "OMG! This film is going to be epic in every way! Everything looks perfect so far."

    I get that you want to wait for the film before you pass judgement but if all the footage, stills, articles and other content released isn't enough to pass judgement, then studios may as well just stop releasing any kind of content and just say, "Wait for the film before you comment."

    I would even argue that they've shown too much already.  But it was my choice to watch the footage and that's not the issue here.

    Lolz, only reason people don't like the Weyland Industries logo and "PROMETHEUS" tag on the side of the ship is because it wasn't there before. Come on people, what you saw before was a work in progress and this is an end result; when I say this, I'm speaking for all of the new effects we've seen in recent trailers. This isn't a 'special edition' this is a finished product; discern whether you like it or not based on the content, not the change it's gone through.

    Sorry, Space.  Usually I agree with a lot of what you have to say but I have to disagree with you on that.  At least the following is true in my case.  I can't speak for everybody else, of course.

    It's not so much the fact the CGI is changing.  The concern here is...

    https://www.avpgalaxy.net/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi49.tinypic.com%2Foss4f4.jpg&hash=6df0be41e0adee66a37a8ab039ac8391

    If it changes and the result looks good, then I'm all for it.  But if it ends up looking overdone or tacky, that's where I go from tolerating all the CGI in this film to just rolling my eyes with each new unnecessary change.  Here's an example of what works and what doesn't (in my opinion):

    INB4 somebody twists my words and says I'm attacking Ridley Scott.  I'm merely commenting on what is already there.

    Anyway, the clip is looks beautiful, the entire look of the planet's entry is gorgeous and it was a very unique tone to it. Elba brings some swagger to Janek that I'm really liking, very believable interaction with the bridge all around. The music also compliments it wonderfully. Just from what we see here, I imagine the non-edited full scene will be quite mesmerizing to watch. I'm thoroughly impressed.

    It is physically impossible for Tom Skerritt to act like a douche.

    Au contraire.

    He acted like great douche in Contact.

    Does that look like a douche to you?

    How about try putting a regular photo of Tom Skerritt up there, and put a clip of LMG from Prometheus and ask the same questions.

    Even in full douche mode Skerritt would be way below LMG on the 'looks like an underwear model' scale. ;)

    It is physically impossible for Tom Skerritt to act like a douche.  His innate cool factor prevents any semblance of douchey behavior...whether feigned or intentional.  It is almost like having a built-in, personal firewall against doucheyness.  In fact, his only known weakness is successfully navigating air ducts.

    Dallas was probably the best man on board - but I was just giving an example. I guess it would have been best to say - post Ron Pearlman in his Hellboy costume and ask the same question.

    Your set.

    Fills me with a terrible rage. >:(

    You have a pretty hot set there yourself.

    Why are we comparing LMG to Skerritt? It should be Hudson. Now there's a douchebag. ;D

    But Bill Paxton's character only began with douche tendencies.  He grew as a character, and went out like a friggin' boss!

    I was going to rebut however your avatar stared me down and convinced me otherwise.

    LOL.  Beware the "eye of the Skerritt"!!  ;D
