People Panic -or- The Problem with Prometheus isn’t *that* Scene

Part 2 of last week's post is going to go up a bit later - instead, I had to take a diversion. You know the scene. Don’t lie, you know exactly the scene I’m talking about, the most infamous scene from 2012’s execrable Prometheus. If you actually don’t know what I’m talking about or have …
