These are the questions: Prometheus
Were you confused after the end credits hit from Prometheus? Don't worry, you're not alone. Ponder with me, if you will, a handful of the questions that would have cleared a few things up had the writers deemed them important enough to answer.
1.) [Watching beginning credits] Is this planet supposed to be Earth?
2.) [As spaceship leaves Engineer on unspecified planet] Who's spaceship is that?
3.) How does that black goo work exactly?
- How can you "engineer" life if it has to go through seven different hosts?
4.) What did David say to the Engineer whilst speaking their language?
5.) If the Engineers' DNA is a 100% match to humans, why don't we look exactly alike?
6.) Also, how do you, a scientist, safely conclude that these "Engineers" are our creators based solely on a DNA match?
7.) Did the Engineers design their hologram recordings to conveniently appear as plot segways?
8.) How is Shaw surviving being thrown around by the Engineer while being held together by stitches?
9.) What's that giant head supposed to be?
10.) Why is there a seemingly random picture of a xenomorph on the wall?
11.) Why does Captain Janek suddenly know that this moon is a military instillation?
- And why didn't he let everybody know sooner?
12.) Why is Shaw with Holloway? He kinda seems like a dick.
13.) Who's really in charge around here: Janek or Vickers?
14.) So, those worms aren't important?
15.) If Weyland dies next to David, where is his body in later shots of David?
If you have other questions, feel free to post them below. Likewise, if I come up with any more, I will post them above. Also, if you have answers to any of these questions, please let me know!
