After watching Prometheus again, I realized why the engineer was running back into the room in the surveillance.
I believe good Sci-Fi doesn’t necessarily give all the answers, but makes you ask the questions. The more I think about it, Alien probably had so many open ended questions as well.
Each time I see it I seem to have such a great conversation with friends about what we think happened. We live in a world where people demand instant answers without even attempting to answer it ourselves.
Seeing this film is always a good reminder for me personally to seek the questions and not just demand answers.
