Stan Slaughter | 359 comments Here is tounge and cheek SMS text message conversation between the "Engineer" in the new movie Prometheus and Noomi Rapaces character. Some pretty funny questions are asked about some ...err... minor plot holes.

Actually, Scott said in an interview that the engineers were keeping a watch on us. Then, around 2,000 years ago, "stuff was getting out of hand," so they sent their ambassador, Jesus Christ, who we then crucified, prompting the engineers to destroy us.

Geesh, the Jews are getting blamed for the planet being targeted for destruction.

Richard | 221 comments This is my interpretation of what is going on with the "Engineers". I don't think it is revealing too much & may help if you feel you need a clue going in, but I'll put it under a spoiler for those who may not want to know. (view spoiler)

Richard | 221 comments I was expecting something more thoughtful & involved, with more of a mystery element to it, but what I got felt more like Alien Lite.
