Convinced that the folks on Planet 4 are not Engineers
Posted May-19-2017 4:03 PM
Did you see that king "Engineer" dressed in white?
What about all the peasant looking Engineers?
Why do the people look like ancient commoners?
Aren't these supposed to be great scientists who have mastered space travel, science, and mathematics?
No. Their buildings look worse than those in Ancient Rome.
How come they have no ships other than the scorpion?
How come there is absolutely NO technology in the citadel?
After answering all of these questions, it is logically IMPOSSIBLE that these are Engineers. I don't care if they use the Engineers' language because apparently, we did, too (Proto-Indo-European).
Can't wait for the Bluray to come out to zoom in on these brutes.

Well they are an alien species. Just saying. Hopefully we will find out. I think a big problem people have is why don't they have this why don't they do that. Perhaps they advance in certain technologies and not others. Maybe they are space hippies. They are aliens. We don't know anything about them really. Perhaps their planet was ravaged by war or they fought a Great War with other aliens. Stop thinking of it from our perspective.
We are just along for the ride as humans in this great big universe...

Ditto, they are not engineers. I believe they were another race created by the engineers in the same way humans were created. Earth may have had a docking system before humans on Earth fell into disfavor. I agree it looks like all the people came out to greet the Engineers who had come to visit and maybe provide their gifts.

We will find out. None of us know. Hasn't anything over the last what five years taught you guys anything. We don't know until we see the next one or the final one whatever. I'm sticking with space hippies;)
Seriously some of you guys build such ideas in your head then you get dissapointed when it's not what you thought. Relax, enjoy. Most of the time everyone is wrong. In the chance someone gets lucky they spaz out, I called it.
Then when something is leaked or released everyone changes everything and starts all over. It's a vicious cycle. No wonder some of you guys are so miserable...

I believe they are what the Engineers wanted us humans and Earth to be. They were in Awe when they saw the ship, almost as if they were meeting their creators again. I also found it odd that the planet did not contain any ships for David to escape in. The planet and Engineers in that planet were most likely in the initial development or it was a prison of bad citizens

Sucks man you hated it that much. I'm still a buzz with just seeing it. I have to watch it again and let time sink in. Sometimes over time I change my opinion on movies I've liked or disliked. Right now I'ml like yay. The real question is how will I feel a few months from now.

@spitter splatter Well I hope you continue to like it. I am just having fun ripping it cause after I saw it and most of today, well now yesterday where I am, I was pissed. Now I'm in the phase where I've gotten past the anger now I'm just gonna rip it apart.

The movie looked so sloppy. Maybe because I saw it in ULTRAVX ... But still, the scenes were obviously cut very short and I could see the whole thing was a rushed shitfest. The POTENTIAL that this film had and the fact that Scott gave in to Fox's demands cheeses me. Most of these complaining bitches like Cameron's Aliens more than the holy grail of all science fiction, Alien, anyway.

I was purely disappointed. Nothing of the prologue previews played out. We went straight into havoc and never got to "know" the crew. It lost all emotion for me. And the neomorphs were the best thing on the movie. I can understand the black goo creating them so quickly and their births and growth so abrupt. But the facehugger and xenomorph? A facehugger that can impregnate a crew member in seconds on contact? No gestation time? To give birth to a chestburster that grows rapidly? No skin shedding, it just grows and waves "Hi there" to daddy David? No imagination to this movie that even gave an inkling of clue to the space jockey or the creature, the perfect organism, found by the Nostromo... I'm just in utter disgust...

Well, I guess David wanted to use the ship to navigate and return to the Engineer home world. I guess David intends to kill every species that is not an Android.
I think this is the person you need to seek and ask.
Wikipedia needs to be updated
The two Neomorphs attack the remaining crew members and kill Ankor. The crew manages to kill one of the aliens before David, the sole survivor of the Prometheus mission, rescues the crew and leads them to a city full of Engineer corpses. David informs the crew that upon his and Dr. Elizabeth Shaw's arrival at the planet, their Engineer ship accidentally released a black liquid bioweapon which killed the native population, and that the ship crashed in the ensuing chaos, killing Shaw. As the crew members attempt to radio the Covenant for help, the surviving Neomorph infiltrates the city and decapitates Rosenthal, who was separated from the others. David attempts to communicate with the creature and is horrified when Oram kills it. At Oram's demand, David reveals that the aliens are a result of his experimenting with the black liquid to create a new species. He leads Oram to an incubation chamber and tricks Oram into being embraced by a facehugger, which implants Oram with an embryo. A Protomorph soon erupts from Oram's chest, killing him.
As the others search for Oram and Rosenthal, Walter confronts David after realizing that David had deliberately unleashed the black liquid upon the Engineers.
