Just saw it on Imax 3D... Visually, it was veryyyy good... Story wise, it had its weaknesses... but then again, Ridley Scott's movies often get over-edited for theater release... so I'll wait for the Director's cut to make up my mind. But it was a good movie all told.
There are several things I'm still unsure of... particularly about the black goo thing, and how it worked, and what it did exactly...
So far my theory is, when they entered the tomb/chamber with the big head, temperature rised and the containers started melting. David took one and infected Bane with a little bit of it... but the rest started oozing in the ground, infecting the worms/maggots in there, which I'm assuming is what those penis-like tentacles, that attacked the two guys who got left in the storm, were (infected worms). Bane started mutating but got burnt. The other scientist got zombie-fied by the mutated maggot, and Rippley 2.0 got a mutated fetus, which turned out to be the mother of all face-huggers, which in turn created probably what was the first alien queen...
Does that sound right to you guys, or did I miss something?
So that means that in order to arrive to the Alien form form the first movie, the virus needed to merge with a man, then a woman/fetus, then an engineer right?
Then how the hell did the alien form get into whatever planet it was that Alien happened on? Maybe it crept into the engineer's ship when the chick and David took off? Maybe that's how the aliens got to reproduce like crazy? (because if they go to the engineers' home planet next, with an alien stoaway, that would certainly explain how there's a shitload of eggs in the first alien movie)
Uhmm do I need spoiler tags, or are we safe now?
