      I think you could be correct, which makes me a sad. Sad on the level of when I read a synopsis on the last Indiana Jones 2 years before they ever started shooting and it turned out to be true .

      Yep, thinking the same thing which means I won't end up seeing this.

      Don't get too depressed. The guy who wrote the now-debunked "spoiler" synopsis based it on things that were already known to be in the story, so it's not too surprising that parts of it line up with things we're seeing now.

      It's been known for a while that the plot would deal with the Space Jockey in some way, and that the story relates somehow to the origins of life on earth.

      Yeah, but that's the reason why I won't be interested. Even if it deviates from the listed spoiler a bit, it still sounds hokey to me. After all we've seen in the Alien universe, this is the best they could come up with to wrap up loose ends? Space Jockey's created the human race, whether directly or indirectly? No thanks, I'll pass. That's me mind you

      The jockies being involved with the creation of humans isn't a deal breaker for me, it was the worm hole/time travel that really made me go "blah", that and the mutating humans.

      Went to see Girl with the Dragon Tattoo last night and saw a brief trailer for this.

      Looks amazing.

      I like the ALIEN-like treatment to the name in the beginning.

      Looks promising

      So much more detail and clarity in the 1080p version.

      Wow.

      So many questions

      I hope the look and feel (mostly limited to miniatures and paintings for effects of the time period) don't get too ultra-pixeled and cartoonish.

      The noir-style was a big part of what your imagination "saw" in the earlier movies.

      It looked good to me.

      The imagery @ 1080p looks flawless to me. Nothing cartoonish or pixelated about it in the slightest, but I'm not an expert.

      Parts of this film are definitely a stylistic throwback to Alien, but other visuals seem more expansive and spectacular. I don't think it will have the characteristic claustrophobic feel of the first film. At least not for the whole duration of the movie, like Alien did.

      Any VWs made after 92 are usually only good for drive train donors.

      I didn't say the imagery looked flawed. I was speaking to the whole look/feel of the film, of which we've only seen tiny clips.

      The earlier movies had limitations due to the technology, budget, etc. The creativity in the grit, grain, and general "darkness" of the first Alien film I hope is maintained even though much more can be shown today due to massive technology leaps and deep deep wallets.

      I watched the trailer again and I got a more positive feel from it. W/Scott at the helm v. someone else interpreting the vision, I am stoked.

      Damn, gotta watch Alien/Aliens and Bladerunner - for the bazillionth time now
