I'm fine with the design of the Engineers - I always thought the upright elephant man look from the comics was stupid in all honesty - and I still think Prometheus was a shitshow.

I think you meant "hit show"? Darn spell correct!

Rewatched this last night for an accessibiltiy project I'm doing.

I still enjoy it immensely. It feels like the first Alien film with a strong idea of what exactly it is since ALIENS.

(Digression: what I mean by this is that ALIEN is a haunted house in space; ALIENS is a war film. Alien 3 is ... ? Alien: Resurrection is ... ? The only answer I have for the latter two is "an alien film" which feels unsatisfactory and, while both films rightly have their fans, it points to a possible source of the flaws in those films).

One thing that leapt out at me is the Juggernaut cockpit, with it's ramp, chair, flute and subsidary controls. That all felt wrong, like an old building that's been retrofitted for accessibility. The original didn't have any of that stuff. Kane had to haul himself up into that space because it wasn't designed for humanoids. David just strolls up the nice wheelchair-friendly ramp. You can even see the Engineers find it awkward, the way one squats to talk about something with the one in the chair. The original didn't need anything like that because the pilot and the ship are clearly indivisible - the pilot never had to leave the chair and stroll about because it was part of the chair

I guess you could make an argument that the Engineers stole the ship/technology and retrofitted it to make it work for themselves.

But I loved it. It's a completely different from what's gone before and opens up possibilities for future directions. Its a great film, perhaps a better science fiction/horror film than an ALIEN film, and maybe the better for it.

Finally, someone who can see the flaws but has a genuinely great time with it anyway.

Prometheus is great fun to watch, but not fun to think about.

I'm still not sure where David got the ladder from (scene where he presses the runes to open the door). Like a cartoon character he seems to have reached off screen to grab it, possibly from one of the carpenters or riggers. :)

Must have missed that. I saw they were carrying bags, but it's a bit fuzzy in places. They must have left their helmets lying around somewhere as well because they weren't carrying them for a while.
