re: Prometheus (2012) discussion - *SPOILERS!*
The fight between the engineer alien and the big face hugger (/squid) was great but why had it suddenly grown so much (after coming from the ladie's stomach in the usual small style we know?). Was it a big face hugger because it was the mother alien creator type? There wasn't one like that in Aliens. Though I suppose it could represent a change in how the species works when the Alien was born at the end.
In AvP hadn't the Predators engineered the Aliens?
Main issues I thought apart from strange story was 1) not enough excitement. There seemed to be a string of separate events divided by going back and forth to the human ship.
2) Not the cool/nasty characters we expect from Alien movies and want to survive/dislike.
3) The survivor's main character point of interest was just that she wore a cross??
4) There wasn't a huge point to Charlize Theron's character's amount of screen time other than having quarantine orders ignored. Could have had something interesting to do.
