Fark - it's edit and repost tag.

It's irrelevant because "robots can only smile evilly if they're prototypes" is asinine.

And even if it were the case - the Harvest robot can be a prototype too.

"Irrelevant"
No. It can't, because David's a prototype.
A one of a kind, Prometheus' own sequel establishes fairly concretely David's the outlier and the successive generation of Android's emotional "expression" is redacted.

This is only reinforced by the portrayal of Walter, Ash, Bishop and Bishop again.
+ (Samuels, Davis, Marcus, Hanks)

There's something human in them, but not maniacal evil intent.

It all came out of "I don't like evil smiling robots" then excuses to discount the already existing evil smiling robots...  :-\

I don't like evil villains gloating in stupid "got'cha" moments that are pulled out of thin air.

A shocking twist! A betrayal! And look -- look at that smile! The fiend!

It was cheesy even for a short film.

Or a pathetic justification of a ridiculous smile I'd say.
Ash isn't all that different from Hanks.

Exactly, its just too over the top and there is no need to pull such an expression, because honestly its not just smiling, its a competely psycho face.

No one even said that. And there is a difference between a smile and a full blown supervillain psycho face.  :P

I mean seriously, smiling and having the "yes I am evil" facial expressions? that was a minus for me personally.

Yeah righto...

Yeah righto, because that doesn't say "I don't like evil smiling robots".  Somebody give this man some spectacles.  :P

Like this?



Pretty much what her face was like. It lets the short down a bit. Would have been better had she just had an apathetic expression.
