I loved the vagueness.  It allowed for such much interpretation and imagination stretching, something that so many people today are incapable of doing.  I don't need all my answers served on a platter.

It's irritating when the film is actually supposed to answer questions.

I understand the logic of wanting questions answered, but I personally found it more compelling to instead have bigger questions proposed.  If the next film answers questions by posing even bigger ones, I'd be ok with that.

I loved the vagueness.

There's being enticingly vague and then there's just being clueless.

I don't think they were clueless in the broad strokes.  They were clueless in the execution of certain situations which made it appear as though the rest of the underlying ides in the film were not thought through.  There are so many directions in which the film could have gone.  They picked a pretty good one, but granted there were flaws.

Well see, now that I know those robed dudes were on the ship - the ship where the goo got out of hand and killed everyone. That means the sacrificial Engineer was dying for the continuation of his race versus simply being a part of some ritual (which is what I always thought it was).

Also I find it very interesting that The Engineers can breathe on that planet at the start!
