Prometheus in Fifteen Minutes.

I would put up a sample quote, but with this movie... I'm not sure I can.

If you haven't seen the movie and want to, feel free to save the Fifteen Minutes for later. It'll keep. I'd rather people say they waited to read it than "Now I don't have to see the movie at all!" It's always a smidge funnier when you realize how little I was making up. On the other hand, it ought to be comprehensible if you don't.

(Yeah, the "alien language" line is actually a simple letter replacement; it can, in theory, be translated. If no one can, well--you get someone to officially reveal what David said in the movie which will never happen, and we'll talk. Seriously, I want to know.)

(On the other hand, do you want to know? Is there any translation that would possibly satisfy you? Seriously, it's not that great.)

I don't mind saying I'm working on something for The Avengers (have been struggling with it for more than two weeks, now, actually, since I saw it a second time), because there's too much of it done to give up anyway. It doesn't have the wonderful footholds of absurdity that Prometheus does, so it's harder.

Also, people seem to be having trouble getting LJ to work. I didn't do it.

I think it would be kind of cool if it turned out they had dropped some extra evolution on a few people here and there, and those people (of various faiths) had turned out to be their emissaries, and the Engineers got pissed every time something bad happened, and Jesus was just the last straw.

Why did they say 2,000 years instead of 2,100? Prometheus begins in the year 2089. It bugged me. :)

I figured because an exact figure would have been a little too on-the-nose? Apparently there was some actual Jesus stuff they cut out for that reason.
