No, I agree, the aesthetic was a huge part of the original film. I just disagree that not having it look exactly the same completely negates Prometheus from the Alien canon, especially considering the Alien itself has never looked identical in any of the films.

But... there's nothing that contradicts anything, story-wise. Some shit looks a bit different.

Whats wrong with this picture?



Which bits look different and why do they not matter?

Did you pay attention to the actual story of Prometheus?

Not to mention... That picture combines both Prometheus and Alien elements... So, it's fan art.

+1

+2

Although I think he's trying to say they redesigned the Space Jockey making them Engineers? Even then its not really retconning because the differences make no difference. The derelict and Space Jockey exist as they are in the Prometheus universe because it's all in the same universe.

Nothing makes sense between the previous world of Alien and Prometheus because nobody in this movie was interested in making it have any sense. I have the feeling that they just didn't give a damm about it.

I would love to hear Fincher's honest opinion about Prometheus. I mean, once he stops laughing of course....

Exactly what I said earlier also. It's because it's the "super sacred Space Jockey that made me wonder about the stars when I was a boy and I like tubes and pipes and stuff" syndrome.

I'm not sure what's hard to understand about something that's eons old looking different from something that's not.

My favourite part is that both come from the same guy.....  :D

I don't have any problem equating Prometheus with ALIEN, and I think basically it is still essentially the story that Ridley has always wanted to tell - that of the bomber and it's bio weapon. I"d say people on it's creative side did give a damn because whilst it takes a completely different route to the sequels of ALIEN, it manages to craft a scenario which doesn't screw the other films, but shows that they are but one possible path.

And why should Fincher care? Laudible though aspects of his directing of Alien3 are, the story is one that diffuses pretty rapidly and he has to all intents and purposes disowned it. I doubt he cares much at all, though as a director I'd be surprised if he's laughing at Ridley Scott for returning to that universe and broadening it out from the dark corridor runaround that it was already straightjacketd by in 1992.

It's not about not understanding it. It's simply about not liking it.

Understanding requires that you have at least a small clue as to what is going on, which you don't. Unless you can tell me precisely how old the base (and Juggernaut) on LV-223 is then you've got zip to support your argument other than what you have been handed: 'degradation'.
