Out of the Blue

So I spoke with the lady from the tree doctor place yesterday, and decided that since the guys showed up Friday because a customer complained they left a mess, I would help them out by saying what a great job they had done for us. When I told her this was because they thought they were supposed to do a follow-up visit here, she was incredulous that they could have mistaken us for the house they were supposed to visit, implying that they'd have to be idiots to think so. So it seems my effort at getting them out of trouble did the exact opposite. Teach me to try and help.

And yet this movie STILL MADE MONEY!!!!

Someone needs to nuke the human race out of existence, the older I get the more cynical I get with regards to what we have acomplished so far.


Saw Prometheus last night. Fuck it I knew Scott sold out to big hollywood with the Gladiator, but I never thought he would take a huge fucking giant dump on his own work (Alien) in this disrespectful way.

His direction and photography is as always quite brilliant but the rest...Jesus what baloney. The acting horrible (apart from David) the writing...atrocious. The plot holes as giant as fucking spaceships...

Its clear to me that he took the money and he simply does not give a fuck. I can imagine it in my head:

Assistant director: Erm Ridley, we had egg pods in alien, but now we have these metal containers..
Ridley Scott: What really? Fuck it my memory is not what it used to be, oh well who gives a fuck, no one cares about that shit anyway....

Assistant director: Erm Ridley, in "Alien" they find one ship and little else on the planet, but here in the script it says we have 'multiple' ships and..
Ridlesy Scott: Oh shut the fuck up and go bugger someone else, cant you see Im having so much fun with my 3d camera???

Firstly, didn't Scott say that it was going to be a psuedo-reboot of the franchise instead of a straight-prequel. In which case, things might not be 100% the same.

As for the pods... I can see things changing with the cylinders.

From my understanding, by the end of Prometheus we have some biological "stuff" still going on. So I could see that, after a few decades/centuries/whatever, that by the time Ripley arrives... the things have overgrown and subverted parts of the ship.

Perhaps turning the bio-weapon black goo into incubators (or whatever) for eggs. And overgrowing the metal canisters and either turning them into resin or forming a big resin cocoon around them.

Hell, didn't one of the films show the thing had overgrown part of a ship base and turned it from metal walls and caves to resin sphincter looking stuff? Same thing could have been done to the cylinders.
