I saw the film over the weekend, but I am still digesting it. I will share some thoughts on it soon.
In the mean time, Here is some solid feminist thinking on Prometheus from a blogger I ran across.
The Nerdy Feminist.
Wait. Nerd? And Feminist!?
I don’t know.
That sounds dangerous. Like a critical mass of coolness.
And it turns out that it is indeed an excellent blog. Give it a click.

Without spoiling anything, I can say that the amazing character of Ellen Ripley, as portrayed by Sigourney Weaver in Alien does NOT have a match in Prometheus. In fact, I’m very disappointed that at least in this series, it appears we’ve quite regressed in the last 33 years. I was so disappointed and concerned that I actually started to jot down the following notes in the theater.
