I love how Mother not only responds entirely in Star Trek gibberish but also takes a very long time to enunciate everything.

She also has no sense of danger or self preservation. I mean, the computer I'm typing on right now asks "are you sure you want to do that?" about simple shit.

David's a great reminder of why Prometheus sucked. Thanks, movie!

So let me go ahead and fill in the holes here since no one's bothering to ask: Shaw and David piloted a ship of horrors to a calm, beautiful, inhabited planet. They unleashed aliens and then decided to burn up the entire population and move into their temple.

Or, at least, that's kind of the movie I wanted...

As the new aliens get bigger I like them less and less. They're more horror movie monkey ghosts.

Also -- Mother finally refuses to do something insane! But she gives up within seconds and obeys the command.

"That will cause catastrophic failure."

"Do it Mother!"

"I cannot comply -- "

"OMG DO IT!"

"Jeez, okay. Flying into mountain as ordered. *sigh*."

We're about 10 minutes past the point where I would have shot David and ground him up as chum.

So...they had a second shuttle and, instead, endangered the entire ship by entering the atmosphere?

I love crazy David. Waiting for him to start talking about attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.

I see you've found my diary. Do you enjoy my drawings? My jumpsuit is really tight.

I love the girl touching the casing of the plasma engine to steady herself as she gets reeled onto the shuttlecraft. So, um, Caution: Hot!

Purely from a xenoarchaeological viewpoint, the damage being done in this movie is appalling.
