the engineer takes the black ooz and drinks it..now im ASSUMING hes on earth. they created water and plants and rocks etc etc and then he swallows a bio-chemical that kills him and his cells go into the water

its this bit that confuses me because the engineers are on this other planet as a testing ground for a bio-weapon which ends up creating those snake thingies that kill them. SO hows this 1 guy got 1 of those ozz things on earth? and why would he drink the damn stuff knowing what happened?

They said he was heading to earth in the ship to kill everything with the chemical onboard...why? i mean 1 guy was there before them and he drank the damn stuff and went into the water...

or am i ment to assume he did this to try and kill off what they had made but it didnt quite work that way? and even if that is the case why the hell did he drink the bloody stuff and kill himself? was he to stupid to put it into the water? why kill himself?


Because it doesn't kill you, it changes you. A Space Jockey shotguns a can, melts, and then Life On Earth.

Swindle01 wrote:Also how has he got that thing and hes on earth when the others are ment to be TESTING it on this other planet?


Probably by using a space ship. Because they are a space faring species. Duh.

Swindle01 wrote:also the other dumb thing is david said - there are other ships -
ok....so doesnt that mean on these other ships other engineers would be there in stasis? why does shaw have to go look for them via the star charts when there could be others on the planet shes on?


Did they say the other ships were full of Engineers?

Swindle01 wrote:also why the hell does she want to see them? the second david said anything to 1 of them it ripped his head off and killed 3 other people....whats she gona do that they didnt?


To go to the Engineer homeworld and get some answers out of them.

Could be a different substance, or it could be engineered to interact with the engineers DNA to produce life.

It's when it mixes with other DNA that things go weird.

As others have said, it leaves a lot of questions but certainly sparks a good debate!

Yes, it was. I wasn't really impressed with Rapace, though.

i dunno i guess i just feel ripped off by this movie. I was looking for at least 50% of the answers but instead got hardly any

while i loved the whole atmosphere and how it felt like it was in the same line as Alien i just feel cheapend by how most of the events took place

i kinda feel the same way about this film that i did when i completed Halo2 for the first time - were the hells the rest of the game? wha? i gotta wait till another one comes out? hmmmm pretty low

i feel roughly the same way and i HOPE i dont feel the same way i did when halo 3 was done with - lame ass snuff ending

it was a good film but its almost as if RC went out of his way to make sure things did confuse and didnt make alot of sense rather than just explaining what happened. Any moron can make a story were your only told the start and then not told much else of the rest of it and make it so you fill in the holes yourself. Just felt lame

Where exactly can you pay to watch a movie online that was just released a few days prior in the theaters? Never heard of such a web site. And yes, we do have web sites where you can steam movies, there not movies that have just been released. Curious where you downloaded this legally.

I'm guessing he got swindled (Irony!) into paying for a pirated movie, and he's trying to use that to justify pirating it. Because as far as I know, no service exists like that.

That's what i was thinking too, But didn't know if sites like that exshist outside of the U.S.. Either way, i guess it still ileagal (moraly wrong) if the production company doesn't aprove; regardless if there country doesn't have any piracy laws.

If someone can come up with a legitimate pay service that shows movies that are still in the theaters please LMK ASAP as I would like to get this matter resolved. Yes as it was answered, we have netflix and redbox in the states HOWEVER those are movies that are new to DVD release, not theatrical.

Piracy laws aren't restricted by country. Case in point, Megaupload.

Which was German, and we have the same Piracy laws as the US. Plus all sites that use a .com thing fall under US law regardless which country they are based in.

No, does not exist, only for movies that are too bad to see a widespread theatrical release, have already been released on DVD or direct to DVD stuff, and then of course there are movies that are made for VOD, but those are almost dead.

Not quite.

The only reason they were able to take Megaupload down is because they had a couple of servers based in the US. Otherwise US authorities wouldn't have been able to touch them.

In that case all they would have had to do was ask the German government to help them, which they would have done.

The company was based on Hong Kong, and though it's founder was German, he lived in New Zealand. And yeah, they both helped when asked by the US Department of Justice.

True, but its all based on wether or not the country is willing to help or not. If there not, then there's nothing the U.S. can do.
