Please, anybody?

If it was just an oversight by the artist, I can live with that.

See, if that is true, it BS. The whole DNA stuff is BS. I wanted to see the REAL space jockey race from the original movie, and what we have is LAME.

I doubt Scott simply forgot. He obviously had his reasons, whether they are clear on screen or not.

Plus, he has gone on record time and time again trying to separate this film from Alien, probably so that we can stop digging so deep into little things like this and just enjoy the film as a standalone piece.

But in the OP you said, and I quote:

I meant Giger, obviously Scott forgot how big these things are. LAME.
How could it be an oversight... for a movie that came 33 years later.

So everyone is now accepting the idea that jockeys are half the size of the original. For no reason. I'd like 5 minutes alone with Ridley...

Wow. The Prometheus board is seriously going to the dogs this evening.  :(

eyeballkid, this complaint has been addressed countless times on countless threads.

I wouldn't say everyone. I mean, I would have preferred it to be the same size, and an organism in and of itself like it was in Alien, but its not and I accept that. Now all that really matters to me is how the new Engineer is handled in the film. Prometheus is its own animal, despite sharing connections with Alien, and I'm willing to view it as such.

Ridley Scott had to make this different from the original movie so he could take control of his own separate franchise and ca$h in. In his story the engineers made the humans, so they are larger but not unreasonably so.
