Agreed. I tend to think people over think a movie and don't appreciate what is going on the screen.
I don't care if there is no chance at FTL, work hole travel, time travel, or if the science they are talking about can't exist. All I can about is it entertaining and fun.
If I want a factual movie, then I'd watch something from National Geographic or the Discovery channel.
Scifi is not factual.
But in good scifi you set rules and play in those rules.
Every show has its own set of rules and physics.
Where Prometheus when wrong was they had no set rules. The writers just make random shit up as they went along.
The movie took a great plot and very poorly implemented trying to squeeze in their little snippets.
Its like several people independently wrote some events/scenes down on playing cards and shuffled them. Then randomly picked some cards in whatever order they were in and just made up stupid filler in between.
That is not good scifi. Hell it did not even have good action.
I have no idea who they wrote that movie for, but it was not scifi fans. Just think about the scifi you like and how you would feel if it were written like prometheus.--
