Well in "Tommyknockers" they find caves which turns out to be alien spaceship that's also turning people alienish. And at the end they also find mean alien waking up and confronting them and also from what I remember spaceship takes off and then falls down. If we take TV miniseries the first half doesn't seem like "Prometheus" because it's dealing with it's residents and their daily chores but the other half when it's about the buried spaceship to me is the same shit.
I mean I'm not saying it's verbatim but the premise is similar enough. Just like when I watched "Avatar" that had the same premise from "Pocahontas".
We have a town in New England vs. an alien planet. I could go on, but that's just absurd so why bother.

Hey listen I just said what my impression of the movie was: boring, predictable and I felt like I saw nothing new. To my surprise not all people are like me, some found "Prometheus" to be refreshing, new and original, but I just say why I didn't.

It's been said that there are only, I think, seven truly original stories (and Shakespeare wrote about four of them); everything else is some combination of those. It's almost a certainty that there'll be many points of similarity between any two stories you can name. Especially in Hollywood, where the same ideas whirl around like Fred Hoyle's tornado in a junkyard.

Not at all challenging that, just the congruence of the two movies. I own a copy of "Tommyknockers", watch it once a year or so. I'll probably never own "Prometheus".

I watched the trailer for the upcoming "Convenant" and again it is all repeating: they go to some planet; something is wrong; they find derelict ship; "what is happening"; they find those eggs inside and watch them in amazement as they start to open; no doubt face huggers scene; then we see those monsters chasing them trough corridors and so on.

I mean really how many time can you make the same movie and make people watch it? What is going on?

I don't know why you say "how many times". The trailer indeed looks as if we're getting a remake of the original ALIEN movie, which is bound to gail because the original Alien is the best scifi horror of all time, but that would only be the second time. I don't think the other Alien movies or Prometheus are that close.

Well in "Prom" they do land on a planet; find derelict ship; find the egg room - although they're not exactly eggs but some sort of cylinders with some black stuff; again you have people in lab dissecting it and asking "What is it" which is something the audience will have to go trough again in the new movie. Although there'll perhaps be some characters from the "Prom" trying to warn them, but they won't listen.

In any case when I heard they're making prequel to Alien and about that doomed ship I thought it was going to be how those killer aliens were made as some sort of ultimate weapon by those giant aliens that were carrying them to destroy some third alien race in some sort of interstellar war. And since it can't just be about aliens I thought that they perhaps stumbled on few humans in space and perhaps decided to use them as guinea pigs, so that we see movie from their perspective. But no. Instead these aliens are some sort of gods, that apparently interfered in evolution on earth, although I don't see how they did it? And why? Perhaps they said they interfered with evolution because makers of the movie don't understand difference between abiogenesis and evolution.

There is nothing better in life than lying next to the one you love.

And they don't know that you love them.

Or that you're in their house again.
