On Prometheus, like every other SF movie out there, the scientists in this movie behaved mostly like teenagers in a slasher flick. You would think that hysterical people wouldn't have been chosen on a 1 trillion dollar mission. You would think that they would have protocols, procedures and methods for first contact. You would think that they would have some methodical means of mapping the place. Would careful, deliberate science have made for a good movie? Probably not when you have loud, swearing lost scientists which were entertaining when they lose their heads, well up to an extent. Curiously enough, the central character in the movie, Dr. Elizabeth Shaw, is a Christian. Anyway, I won't say more until everyone has watched it.
