Whatever floats your boat...
Prometheus Directed by Ridley Scott Written by Jon Spaihts and Damon Lindelof
WARNING : SPOILERS
I don't care what anyone says, I thought Prometheus KICKED ASS and I will see it 42 more times in a row as soon as it comes out on DVD. Here's where I'd like to see it go in the next two sequels to the prequel, preferably with Ridley directing again :
Prometheus leaves us with the question of why the race of giants who sacrificed one of their own to seed our planet with the DNA that would allow our evolution would suddenly change their minds and come back on a mission to utterly destroy us.
I'll tell you why.
The alien giants saw early on that we were veering onto a path of greed, self-importance and power lust to a degree never before seen in all the known space territories. They first tried to flood us out but we were resilient. They decided to change tack and try to appeal to whatever little reasonable DNA we might have retained from them and sent a messenger disguised as one of us to try to turn us back onto a more peaceable road. How did we react to this humble alien servant ? Why we degraded and humiliated him of course. Then we beat the crap out of him, nailed him up on some crossed boards, shanked him in his side and left him hanging up to die a slow and agonizing death.
This of course alerted the giants to the fact that they had inadvertently created the meanest sons of bitches ever to scar the universe with their (our) presence. Of COURSE they had to destroy us.
All the elements have been there from the beginning. The " race of giants " from the bible, the whole created in God's image thing and of course the serpent and/or dragon.
Hey, if Abraham Lincoln can be a vampire hunter then Jesus can certainly be an alien.
So DO it Ridley.
I DARE you.

Just for the record, they should not have killed Newt in Alien 3. Newt was meant to grow up to be Leelee Sobieski so maybe in the next post prequel sequel they should throw some string theory/ alternate universe stuff in there to bring her back.
...and rest in peace Dan O'Bannon. They just don't write like that anymore.
