Since there has been a lot of q&a on the matter, I started composing a webpage on the matter... would welcome any and all thoughts:

nice write up.

I kinda saw vickers coming.. Everything. Didn't like what happened to her. Maybe because I'm obsessed with Charlize Theron. Hah.

if it takes that much writing to explain a 2 hour film the writing isnt very good in either the film or explanation of.

It was written by one of the Lost writers - which explains it all. Great ideas, absolutely no idea how to follow through with them.

I like your explaniations but I still think the movie was a bunch of crap. You really have to search deep to find any connection to Alien, hell the things you reference on your website in the first paragraph look absolutely nothing like alien, an octopus comes to mind when I see them....overall the movie was still.....meh

I feel like the storytelling is poorly done if you need that much explanation for a movie.

I still don't get the octopus thing etc but whatever.

This guy nailed it. It's exactly what I was thinking as well. He's also very right about he original Alien movie, a lot of questions were unanswered and people felt the same way about it, and now Prometheus is what Alien was back then.

I also thought you have to see this movie more than once. It did remind me of memento and Inception. You can't get everything in your first viewing.

Please don't compare it to Memento and Inception. Those movies know what they're doing. They have a tight plot.

Prometheus is just a mess.

This review says it well.

http://events.charlo...s#storylink=cpy
Here's a breif portion:

Characters act like morons, approaching fatal encounters with the trusting smiles of simpletons. Nobody thinks twice about holding a hissing snake up to his face or opening the ship’s door to a crew member who now crawls like a spider, his arms and legs bent backward under him.
If the film’s philosophy had some weight, maybe one could forgive the narrative lapses, the slack characterization, the superhuman feats performed by ordinary people with crippling injuries.
