With a few tweaks here and there, any links to Alien could be removed from Prometheus and then its just a reasonably enjoyable sci-fi flick with 2 more films to come, no pressure. The thing is, remove those links to Alien and the film probably doesnt exist at all. Prometheus owed Alien and its fans, but it didnt respect that, and that is why the fans justifiably get upset. Maybe therell be a directors cut that goes someway to appeasing the disgruntled. Maybe the damage has already been done. Now for the sake of fans everywhere, can someone stop Ridley before he starts on that Blade Runner sequel, if that gets made the Internet may well implode.
