Damn it, I just came to post this! But yeah, Best. Prank. EVER!!!

I was about to do the same.

I keep thinking if that was me, one of us would not have come out of there alive.

That could NEVER be done in the U.S.  Before the host got the words "You've been pranke...." out of his/her mouth, a team of lawyers would suddenly appear in an equally mysterious fashion and start handing out subpoenas like there was no tomorrow.

SyFy actually had a similar show on for a while. It was hosted by Shannon Doherty, if I'm not mistaken.

I believe it was called Scare Tactics and was hilarious but was dangerous. I think in one episode an actor pretending to be a serial killer was punched pretty brutally by the target. Strange it looks like it is being re-run with that guy from 30 rock.

10  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Time to say good-bye to my best friend. on: August 09, 2012, 02:26:46 PM
A dog is absolutely the best friend anyone can have. In my life I had three dogs and they were the best friend ever. Excited to see you, anytime. Good listeners as well. I had a rough set of teen years and really no one to talk to. My sister had a runt named Squirt who was my biggest confidant, who helped me to get through those years. Kage (Shadow in Japanese), was my dog, who I had to give up to my folks when I couldn't find a place that allowed pets. I visited him when I could, when my folks lived nearby, and when they moved to AZ. At 16 yo, my Dad told me he had a feeling that Kage was getting ready to leave. I drove 9 hours to their house and saw him. When I got there he was happy to see me but then started barking at me for about a minute. I hugged him and gave him some treats. I was sure he was okay and my Dad was overreacting. The next day we found him asleep forever in his doghouse. To this day, I think he was saying goodbye to me and I had failed to see it.

You have my deepest sympathies Arclight. Strider sounded like he was a great friend.

I got my wife to go with me on my third viewing and I can definitely say that the engineer is not wearing a suit. There are too many things that show that it is a different engineer. The engineer hologram shows that they were running away from something because they kept looking back as they ran.  The space jockey hologram shows that they were heading to earth but why is there only one engineer in hypersleep? Maybe they were waiting for the earthlings to show they had the technology to come see them? Or as David said it all went to pot, which still doesn't help to answer the why?

I look like hell when I wake up.  This guy just woke up after a couple of thousands of years, so that might explain his appearance. Tongue

Interesting ideas about the goo.  That picture of the engineer standing up still looks like a suit to me though.


LOL. Hope to never wake up next to you.
There were shots in the movie where the Engineer's arm was opened up, like wounds, and blending into the Xenomorphic suit or transformation. Going to try and see it again to get more info. Call me crazy but never call me late to dinner!  icon_wink

I'll try to answer:

Quote from: hispanicgamer on July 20, 2012, 04:45:05 AM

1. Why is the "seed" engineer different from the sleeping engineer? The opening has the seed engineer practically naked while the engineer that wakes up is different in that he has been transformed somehow. Kind of like he was infected because he has weird xenomorphic features to his  body. I don't think he is wearing a space suit.

They aren't different.  The only difference I saw was the space suit.  In the first movie it looked like the alien had some sort of elephant trunk that was attached at both ends.  In Prometheus it is shown to be part of a space suit.  Everything about the head was actually just part of the helmet.  

Quote
2. The engineer who loses his head. Why did the door seal? Why were all the bodies piled up outside the door and David conveniently knows the code in? Were they trying to stop the pilots?

I believe the door was sealing as a protective measure.  The engineers had lost control of their weapon (the goo canisters) and they were running for a safe area.  The door came down to seal them off and decapitated one of the aliens.  I'm not sure why the bodies were piled up.  That could have been done by the living engineers before they figured out what kind of trouble they were in and headed for the safe area.

Quote
3. Why is the spaceship in the opening completely different than the colon shaped ship? Did these engineers discover the nasty goo and were now going to use it as a weapon rather than the hypothesis that this was the creation of the engineers?

They are different space ships.  From what I could gather the ships on the planet were designed to deliver their weapon to the planets that they supposedly created.  The shot from the beginning of the film was probably thousands of years, if not millions of years, in the past.   They were seeding a planet.  Much later on they decided to kill those planets with their weapons.  Don't ask me why they'd do such a thing.  And I'm also guessing that the goo the engineer drinks in the beginning is different from the goo in the canisters.  If not, why is it a weapon at the end but a great gift in the beginning?

Quote
5. WTF did David say to the engineer?!

Who knows?  How did David even know their language?  Studying different Earth languages does not mean that you automatically know how to speak and read an alien language, but I guess it does in this movie.  Maybe he said "Hi, I'm an android in an alien movie.  I think I'm supposed to be ripped apart yet retain my ability to talk to the protagonist."
Well allow me to retort!  icon_wink
I went back specifically to see about the biologist and also read some blogs about the supposed back story. That's when I noticed something about the two engineers looking different. Below is a picture of the Engineer about to jump into the Space Jockey suit, notice his eyes have dark circles and that he has black veins on his face. Similar to Halloway’s transformation.

Now look at a picture of Engineer looking at the Space Chair: It was during this scene where I noticed that his skin blends into the Xenomorphic protrusions, looking like he has undergone some type of transformation. His legs and body begin to look like our classic Alien.

It was also more prevalent during the fight scene with the Trilobyte:

My theory is that some of these Engineers had begun to experiment with this black goo and were transformed into Evil Engineers. That’s why we see a chase in the poorly shot Engineer replay where the Engineer loses his head. If Halloway had been allowed to transform, he would have become evil just like Fifield. I agree that this isn’t the same goo as the opening since the seed Engineer falls apart. This goo is meant to transform things to a more evil or violent thing rather than destroy. The mixing of Halloway’s child, the Trilobyte, with the transformed Engineer breeds the ultimate evil: The Alien. My $0.02 but you might want to go and see it again or we can have this discussion once the DVD is released. Still having fun dissecting this story. icon_biggrin

Really enjoying the conversations about the movie. I'm with the first group who says they liked the movie. So here are my contributions to the conversation..
I went back and saw it a second time because I couldn't remember what happened to the Biologist, who I thought was poorly acted as a supposed biologist. So I saw he had died and that the worm got out of him but  nothing else happens to his character. The geologist, gets transformed from the goo, which seems to transform space worms into evil worms, humans into monsters, and human sperm into squidy type monsters.
Maybe this has been covered but here are my contributing questions:
1. Why is the "seed" engineer different from the sleeping engineer? The opening has the seed engineer practically naked while the engineer that wakes up is different in that he has been transformed somehow. Kind of like he was infected because he has weird xenomorphic features to his  body. I don't think he is wearing a space suit.
2. The engineer who loses his head. Why did the door seal? Why were all the bodies piled up outside the door and David conveniently knows the code in? Were they trying to stop the pilots?
3. Why is the spaceship in the opening completely different than the colon shaped ship? Did these engineers discover the nasty goo and were now going to use it as a weapon rather than the hypothesis that this was the creation of the engineers?
5. WTF did David say to the engineer?!

Quote from: TiLT on March 18, 2012, 07:05:59 PM

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess what's going on in this movie right here, right now:

Spoiler for Hiden:
An alien race (the space jockeys) is trying to exterminate all races it considers a potential threat to itself. A signal is sent across the universe to attract those races advanced enough to seek it out. Once they arrive, the aliens do something to obtain the location of their home planet (probably some kind of brain extraction) and then sends a warship laden with bioweapons in the form of xenomorphs to wipe out the entire planet. The crew on the ship sent to seek out the alien signal discovers the plan and desperately tries to stop the ship before it can reach Earth. In the end they deliberately free one of the xenomorphs, which kills the space jockey and crashes the ship on an unknown, barren planet. The survivors then head home and tell their story, which leads directly into Alien, where Weyland-Yutani is trying to rediscover the location of the planet where the ship crashed to obtain the xenomorph for themselves.

Any better theories? smile

So glad to hear your troubles have improved! Ford may not make the most fuel efficient cars but they make one helluva good engine. I'm at 140K mile with my 1993 Ford Ranger. Only thing major to repair was the radiator and water pump. Everything else is great. A buddy of mine is a mechanic and had someone bring in a Ford Ranger with +100K miles and no measureable oil in the engine but was still running fine like that for well over 20K miles! The guy neglected to maintain his truck on a regular basis but was still able to drive it with nearly any oil in it.  icon_lol
