The real reason is that Alien overall was a far better movie and thus worth closing a blind eye to its own logical fallacies.

Right, so all these discussions of Prometheus' lore and whatnot are moot. Setting all that aside, it was a totally forgettable movie. I didn't scream for my money back when it was over, but I didn't (and still don't) have any desire to watch it again.

In the end, yes, Prometheus was only an average movie at best in the general consensus (though I have met a couple of people who loved it, and who am I to say they shouldn't have?) but the level of nitpicking hysteria has reached epic proportions. It is just counterproductive imo. When I was younger and foolish I actually made my wife (girlfriend then) sit and watch Aliens with me despite her telling me she hated sci-fi with a passion. I figured it was such a fantastic movie there was no way she could not like it. Halfway through I noticed her checking the time and barely succeeding in surpressing eye rolls and laughter. She hated it! She thought it was one of the dumbest movies she ever saw, and proceeded to tell me in detail why. The laughably excessive complaining from supposed sci-fi fans about tiny minutiae in Prometheus reminds me of exactly that. Anyone who has ever enjoyed a sci-fi film has swallowed truckloads of insanely impossible stuff on the way, but now all of a sudden we need constant impeccable believability?
