I haven't either.

I used to think this as well, but Alien 3 really grew on me the more I watched it.

The first 3 films are simply just great films for different reasons.

Horror, Action, Slasher. Extended cut of 3 is pretty okay. The Fourth one is a steaming pile of garbage and the reason Joss Whedon sucks.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

Or, given the militarization of the Corporation, perhaps such encounters were covered up, sanitized from the records, etc, to the point where a century or two in the future hardly any one knew about it. ;)

So i really dont see how a prequel about different aliens can work. Not that im not looking forward to the movie, it looks like a great time, i just dont see how it can be a prequel.
that's not at all how I remember it.

What I remember is that Bishop(the robot) was the one that changed the ships course and made the unscheduled stop to investigate the "egg ship" after receiving intel that it was there . It was also his "mission" to obtain either an egg or specimen of said alien since it posed no threat to him (him being, you know, non biological) by any means, which is why he opened the bay to let them back onto the ship even though the officer in charge (Ripley) declared quarantine and refused to let them on the ship in the first place as was the protocol.

Soooo actually the corporation not believing Ripley was just so they wouldn't have to pay her or just to cover shit up. She was a cryo pilot/second officer and after she got back she could only take a job as a docks worker, she got blamed/burned for the incident. And no it's not that they didn't believe her since they actually sent someone to investigate(the colonists that up untill then were actually fine and dandy living on the same planet with the egg ship) and then when not hearing anything from them sent a military hit squad to assess the situation.

Bishop was the android from Aliens, and a good guy. Ash is the one you're thinking of.

Didn't realise a 26 year old movie required spoiler tags.

No wait. What? What are you even saying?

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. Best I could figure was he was bashing himself for messing up his own statement? Even that seemed like a stretch, but it was the best I could come up with.

Quite.

Better the second time around. Stupid crew are stupid though.

The thing that annoyed me most about Prometheus is that I went into it expecting multiple explanations for stuff that was just never explained in the Alien movies. They barely scratched the surface of explaining and instead provided us with even more question. Argh.

--------------------SPOILERS-----------------------------------------

If you had an alien fetus cut out of your stomach by the auto-doc, and return the crew with staple marks and blood on your stomach, should you :
a) tell them there is a dangerous alien lifeform in the escape pod

or

b) not tell anyone. I'm sure it'll be *fine*.

The correct answer is c) ignore the fact there is an alien fetus in my stomach and just go on about my business.
