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.

OMG PROMETHEUS GO SEE PROMETHEUS. If you like Alien, go see Prometheus. If you find Alien to be too much of a horror movie, or not the right kind of science fiction for your palate, don't go see Prometheus.

SPOILERS SPOILERS SO MANY SPOILERS )
