The worst part is that the questions/answers aren't even particularly interesting in Prometheus. The plot just suffers from continuity and characterization problems. They didn't really seem to know how to handle such a large cast either, easily 3-4 of the characters could have been entirely removed without much effect. It tweaks my film OCD when they were so close to great but fucked up such obvious stuff.

Well, yes, that too. There were so many immersion breaking moments that I got mad by the end of the movie. In Alien, I was rooting for Ripley. In Aliens, I was rooting for Ripley. In Prometheus, I was rooting for the Engineer. The woman was so stupid that I was actively hoping for her to get killed. The only truly interesting character, amusingly enough, was the one character (from the Prometheus) who wasn't actually a human.

In fact, that really sums up the movie for me. Stupid characters. How that many stupid people managed to be selected for a $1 trillion project is mind boggling. Right from the moment the first idiot took off his helmet because the air was breathable, completely overlooking the possibility of pathogens/toxins/etc, I couldn't really understand how they could be so stupid. Meh, it's making me annoyed again just thinking of it!
