number none wrote:pretty dumb butOriginally in the draft there’s a scene in the movie where we see David with his headset on and he’s talking to someone, and we don’t know who it is, and he gets confronted by Vickers [Charlize Theron]. There’s a scene in the script that we decided not to shoot, where we see the inside of that dream, and basically David takes a jet ski out with a beautiful woman in a bikini, to a yacht, and on the yacht is Weyland – played by Guy, without old-age make-up: this is his dream. They have a scene together and in it David says, “The engineers are dead, they’re all gone, mission failure,” and Weyland says, “Go back and try harder.” We rewrote it so that we were going to play Weyland’s identity closed, give the audience a sense that David was talking to someone on the ship but not view them.
This is bullshit. Total Christian propaganda. It's like Tom Cruise saying Battleship Earth isn't about Scientology.

-Why was landing on the planet so goddamned easy? The Nostromo detatching from its cargo and touching down on LV-426 is this fucking grandiose moment--it's Ridley Scott saying, "hey, space travel is fucking dangerous!" Prometheus makes exploration look like a walk in the park
