Nothing wrong with being a gay open-minded libertarian militant atheist...I mean, look at THIS lot!

If it turns out that the SJ's are the 'creators', and they themselves look human... and the movie is poor... I'll be disappointed that my own thoughts/ideas on the SJ's and the derelict have been sullied. However, if the SJ's are the 'creators', and they themselves look human... and the movie is good... I'll be more than fine with that approach. :)


well, I suppose there could be the whole series of ideas that build up through the film about their connection with the origins of the human race and then suddenly we discover that none of this might actually be as real as that.

Actually...let me restate my assertion.

NASA and the Science community has said that Life on earth needed a push, or a jump start. They do not know what, but they agree upon that fact. Based on that.....anything is possible.

I think you're talking about Panspermia...it's an idea that life here could have been seeded by some extraterrestrial source. But that could be as simple as comets distributing organic compounds or even simple microbes into the early Earth atmosphere. It's not "divine," however, more an introduction of organic compounds from interstellar space.

And it's not something the scientific community and NASA have said as a whole. It's an idea...barely a hypothesis, and certainly nowhere near a theory.

I think several of the posters in this thread are missing out the 'FICTION' in the term 'Science-FICTION', just because it offends what they WANT this film to be according to their BELIEF system.

It's a sci-fi (or SF, if you prefer...)film from Sir Ridley Scott that we DON'T REALLY KNOW MUCH ABOUT.

Give IT (and others) a break.

Properly stated Glaive. All this criticism for a film no one has seen based off of set pieces we don't have a context for.

I agree fully..

But this has been the trend in this community since before AvP1 was released on PC back in the 90's.

No, he doesn't mean that.
Both NASA, and more interestingly,some quarters of the Vatican have agreed there is a missing link in the evolutionary steps of the human being.We could not of evolved to this stage without a nudge, apparently.

Those wires were digitally removed for the Final Cut.  That's an example of a good use of CGI in conjunction with practical effects.

Those wires were visible in various versions of the film for 25 years - thus showing the a dodgy effect is a dodgy effect no matter how it's executed.

Not sure what you're going for, here. With the Final Cut, Rid had the technology to go in and brush those cables out, and he did so. It was a tasteful revision. If he'd filled the movie up with dancing Jar-Jars, you might be onto something. But again, I'm not sure what point you're trying to make. We're talking about how Ridley's going to use the tools, aren't we?

You can still see the wires on the Drop Ship from Aliens in various shots, does it spoil the film... of course not!!

H.R. Giger.  The more pertinent question is who created H.R Giger and how can he have lived for so long?!
