let's talk about the little things I am enjoying seeing crop up in Prometheus discussion:

1) Crystal skull/von Daniken/etc. tie-ins

2) my association of the apparently "ampules" to canopic jars

3) my terming of the Engineers as Titans/Giants

Basically, history and art history and mythology all tied up with science fiction. SO INTERESTING.

2 & 3 particularly because everyone I'm seeing is terming them differently. Interesting associations.

Also, [livejournal.com profile] dancecat89 turning to me at the end and saying "I feel like I should have seen the Alien movies before I saw this one". Recorded for eternity.

Also-also, the weird tentacular beast that Shaw's baby turned into, I COULD NOT stop thinking about the movie Evolution. God damnit that movie is hilarious.

ooh! I think I saw part of Evolution once... =P

And... that just means we get to have an Alien movie marathon at some point, right?

Evolution is a riot! It's got David Duchovny and the old Make 7-Up Yours guy and is ridiculous all around.

And yes, we have to do a marathon! Not sure how many to include, I've only seen the first two, but I know eventually it gets into the ridiculousness of AvP and stuff... and that one was baaaaad.
