In space, you can’t hear people mock your scarf and flip-flops outfit.

I agree that in the history of cinema that that there has been no better candidate for the immediate use of a flamethrower on than Dr. Charlie Holloway. This view still stands when noting Zombie movies. Yes, fry the zombies but only after Charlie.

I have read criticisms of Logan Marshall-Green’s acting but I really do think he nailed it.

I apologize for the disgusting nature of the above photograph. 

Dr. Holloway is shown spoiled, drunk, and pouting after the arrival on LV-223 did not include an Engineer parade (inconsiderate dead Engineer photo below) and someone handing him a pamphlet showing how he was created (and he only has time for pagan explanations). How familiar this image above has been as a reflection in my mirror…scary.

Can we admit that Dr. Holloway performed the biggest fumble in humanity’s history?

Dr. Holloway’s “anything and everything” definition of boundaries removed all restraint from David.

If I was asked by David 8 at the pool table why we (his creator) chose to create him I would tell him he was made in an attempt to reach our dreams in a way that we could not without him with tears in my eyes. 

Then I would say I needed to puke (he would want to wait to put black goo in my drink hopefully) and run strait to Captain Janek. I would ask Captain Janek if there was a performance bonus for letting David experiment on members of the crew we didn’t like. If no bonus, then we would have to dust off the “Let’s waste the robot” plans.

These grotesque displays of spoiled pouting, I believe, brought the viewer into the place where the flamethrower was the best idea ever. I strongly believe Logan Marshall-Green should have won an award (or all of them) for this display. When I saw this display it was as if we were intra-century twins.

Any criticism of the above content is your welcome opinion. Please do not be vulgar.

Lvbank, we form a fangroup. Two members only, but it's OK.


OvomorphMember45 XPMar-13-2017 5:35 PM

@Neomorph that is hilarious! Someone needs to give LMG an award.


PraetorianMember3378 XPMar-13-2017 5:38 PM

And please let's not forget about the cosmetics department taking into consideration the fact that his skin is immaculate and beautiful - everywhere...


TrilobiteMember8212 XPMar-13-2017 5:38 PM

To his credit, he died pretty honorably.


PraetorianMember3378 XPMar-13-2017 5:43 PM

Oh, no, Charlie lives forever, he will apear in Alien: Covenant.


OvomorphMember40 XPMar-13-2017 5:44 PM

bit of a different look there- a talented actor sometimes does get bad writing


PraetorianMember3378 XPMar-13-2017 5:50 PM

But not here! :) We love Logan.


DeaconMember10358 XPMar-13-2017 6:10 PM

"His scientific belief didn't bother was how he acted, non humble condescending toward others with his self righteous egotistical attitude"

In Life we get people like this... i have met a fair number of people who would make Holloway seem more nicer than even Walter... some who would make Holloway as nice as ET.

At least Holloway is not in any great governing power... the world is full of A-Holes like this, well i would say 1 in 10 for sure.

As far as his Character goes, he had worked his whole life and based all his findings on their being a actual Ancient Aliens as his studies and theories was... so when he found out that he had arrived 2000 years to late to the Party.

He was bound to be disappointed and wanted to have a drink..

We can only assume if David had not spiked his drink, he would have been back down the next day to recover and uncover as much information  as he could for what now is just ANOTHER Archeological Dig.

This is for Ati. It's all mouth and scarf.

I thought he was great in Devil.


PraetorianMember3381 XPMar-13-2017 6:44 PM

And Dr. Holloway may be a University of Texas fan.


OvomorphMember40 XPMar-13-2017 6:48 PM

LMG fan group member #2 here- funny pictures of the expressions. So Ati what's his role in the Alien Covenant?  Maybe he's just a stand in lip / ankle enhancement?  Ha


ChestbursterMember739 XPMar-13-2017 6:53 PM

He could be a visible spirit Obi-Wan Kenobi-style. But the armed crew members of The Covenant should conserve their ammo against aliens instead....


PraetorianMember3381 XPMar-13-2017 6:56 PM

Lvbank and Ati.

Count me in as #3.


PraetorianMember3381 XPMar-13-2017 6:58 PM

And he did die honorably in regards to his spouse S.M and dk.


XenomorphMember1261 XPMar-13-2017 7:03 PM

So unguns likes Holloways mouth.........I'm gonna leave that one alone


PraetorianMember3381 XPMar-13-2017 7:07 PM

And you got on to me for bringing that up in the Yutani thread.

Now, we have to have some maturity boundaries Rick and I wanted to prove I can field an opposite opinion (guaranteed with Dr. Holloway) and I'm not vain (the link to page three on Unguns is messed up on page two).


XenomorphMember1261 XPMar-13-2017 7:12 PM

Time to key the banjo's

You Gotta Purty Mouth


TrilobiteMember8212 XPMar-13-2017 7:17 PM

LOL! I remember getting hazed for "rubbing the dome" too much causing the dome on my Alien Isolation figure to become dull among other things.


XenomorphMember1261 XPMar-13-2017 7:43 PM guy hazing is fun.  I hope Unguns appreciates it.


PraetorianMember3381 XPMar-13-2017 9:01 PM

I have now counted two postings in relation to Dr. Holloway's mouth from you Rick.

Here is your own mouth and scarf dedication.



PraetorianMember3070 XPMar-13-2017 9:07 PM

Whoa,clearly i missed out on the one.Scarves and mouths,not the direction i pictured this going in lol

Nothing the God of biomechanics wouldn't let you in heaven for 


PraetorianMember3381 XPMar-13-2017 9:20 PM

My bad Rick, I should not have recycled a dedication.

Here is your own all mouth (open) and scarf.


PraetorianMember3381 XPMar-13-2017 9:23 PM

With that scarf ninXeno426, it was a little easy to forecast we would cover it.

Dr. Holloway's mouth, you knew we would get to that.


ChestbursterMember554 XPMar-13-2017 9:23 PM

First off, wtf with this Holloway mouth deviation. Disgusting and entertaining at the same time. Still I ask....Why?

Second, the OP has made a fair point. Holloway is hated, but perfect for his role in the larger plot. I often ask myself why people get caught up on the dislikability factor of the characters. The Prometheus naysayers love to harp on this aspect of the characters. This thread has been much needed.

Long story short, Green played this role perfectly, and the role was essential to Prometheus. Glad to see I'm not the only one who sees it.

Now seriously, yes his mouth generally takes on a pout. It's hilarious this has gained so much attention. That said, who could pout their way to douchery as well as this?

Cheers to Holloway and his incinerated pout.


PraetorianMember3381 XPMar-13-2017 9:25 PM

Thank you QueenElizabethShaw for writing the summary I was unable to.


ChestbursterMember554 XPMar-13-2017 9:28 PM

My apologies all. I've had a few


PraetorianMember3070 XPMar-13-2017 9:29 PM

Ingeniero,yeah i guess so lol with all those open mouth pics lol.

Nothing the God of biomechanics wouldn't let you in heaven for 


PraetorianMember3381 XPMar-13-2017 9:32 PM

And now the Aggie's hate him too. 


PraetorianMember3381 XPMar-13-2017 9:36 PM

QueenElizabethShaw, no need to apologize.

You're welcome here.
