More Promethesque Stuff

From Ridley himself  :laugh:












This reminds me of my interpretation/theory of the Engineer as an earthly variant of a God from Pantheism philosophy: God becomes the universe and the Engineer becomes the primordial life. Both through sacrifice.  ;D

Ha! Good catch!

You can't really call anything creaated before Prometheus as a rip-off though.

This clearly seems to be though. Looks like Asylum, bunch of scumbags.

Requel: A movie which revisits the subject matter of an earlier film but is not a remake or a linear continuation of its plot (i.e. a sequel or prequel).

There is also a thing called spiritual successor, although it doesn't fit too much in this thread. But I do think Ridley's upcoming 'Raised by Wolves' TV series is like a spiritual successor of what Scott had in mind for Covenant 2.

Also, ignore the pareidolia, because it is mostly for fun ;D

SiL

But how can a movie made before Prometheus, rip off Prometheus? ???

Prometheus rips off Planet of the Vampires (as does Alien), not the other way around. Or is the thread also for films that inspired the prequels?

Something like that.

Thread title: "Alien Prequel Ripoffs, Requels & Promethesque Trivia"

Requel: A movie which revisits the subject matter of an earlier film but is not a remake or a linear continuation of its plot (i.e. a sequel or prequel).

I may be wrong, but I'd say that Prometheus is a ripoff of "Planet of the Vampires" and a requel of "Mission to Mars".

SiL

Right, but a Prometheus requel would be a movie that is a requel of Prometheus, not a film that Prometheus is a requel of. Again, it would refer to films that came after, not before.

(Like I get what you mean now, just that it's worded confusingly).
