Erm, you must be trolling.

Questionable CEO's have existed since the beginning of time, or at least, CEO's have admitted they have made mistakes - Hilmar included.

Just another mistake by a CEO....I have no issue with this being in the movie.

"Inception" springs immediately to mind, when the two most powerful energy company chairmen are:

a) in the same aeroplane together
b) In 3 dream sequences together

And one of them (Robert Fischer) does not recognise the other (Saito), analogous to Steve Jobs and Bill Gates being on the same aeroplane together and Steve not recognising Bill.

In the case of Inception, it breaks the wall; in the case of Prometheus, it doesn't.

If you think mistakes or inconsistencies from another movie excuse the absolutely amateur writing for Prometheus you are an idiot.

In any case, the low intelligence displayed by the expedition members is just a small subset of the problems with this movie. My hopes that some future DVD version of a director's cut will fix some of that are most likely unrealistically optimistic, as the saying "you can't polish a turd" applies all too well here.

With a month and a week of perspective on a couple of viewings, I realize I liked the movie more than most but I'm terrifically disappointed with the story: I wanted aliens, not extra large humanoids with issues.

Read my post again, and then return to appologise; unless your really are a Berkshire hunt.

The only part of the movie that was worth watching where the spaceships,those things where bad ass even though they were just frigates. It was like watching a minor clash between the Caldari and Jovians.

Karkaroph has not yet seen this movie.

he does not wish to spoil the experience by cramping himself into a small chair in a large room with four hundred adolescent males making the "oooo" sound every time a pretty girl gets mauled by a tentacle.

he cannot wait for the Blu-Ray release. Yet he fears he must wait for it.

No spoilers please. Or - if you must spoil for Karkaroph:

Good spoilers please.

[i]I have seen so much of it, that truly I know nothing of it, except that it embaces me.

I, Karkaroph.[/i]

So glad I saw this in 3d. I loved it! Yeah, it has major issues, but I can't remember a sci-fi movie that actually had as much of a connection to our reality. Hopefully the next one will be better though.

Did I see that right? Did the captain of Prometheus wear an EVE T-shirt? It went all so fast that I might be mistaken. it seemed like the Eve on-line logo. and under the three big letters something like - I fly "bla-bla" -

It's a Weyland corp logo. The logo looks very similar to the EVE logo, so it's an easy mistake to make.

I wasn't hyped about this movie, not being a huge Alien fan, but after seeing it I really can't wait for the sequel!

Thanks for pointing that out . But wow that's remarkable similar to the Eve logo.
