Would a real scientist take off his helmet or play with the "baby snake"?


Is that realistic in any way?

reply

They were the worst scientists lol. Play with baby space snake when it mimics striking, yeah makes sense. I really enjoyed the scene though.

reply

lol same here

They've mastered faster than light travel, artificial gravity, and anti-gravity, but they still drive wheeled vehicles and carry a ladder.

So, yeah, this makes perfect sense given the context of what we see on screen.

reply

hehe true, what part was the ladder though?

reply

I remember it was one of those collapsible telescopic ladders that they used to access the controls for the door that led to the giant head statue room.

Gotta publish that paper.

even the best sci fi movies have this kind of little stupid ''jokes'', it's to make it viewable and marketable to more people (kids, low IQ people).

since I love Prometheus as a serious movie I thought that was the worst scene of the whole movie, as well as the captain with his careless attitude, but the scene where he gets to bang the blond is hilarious.

did he bang her?

reply

yeah cuz they talking about getting laid, he asks her if she's a robot then she answers ''my room, 10 minutes''
