It would be boring to flesh out all of the details
I'm not sure I even want to see those two characters revisited in a sequel.
The "moment of triumphant satisfaction" I was referring to was the very last shot, nothing to do with Shaw or David.
You "disagree completely" with a statement of unassailable fact that this movie is all about finding answers and offers none? Your following paragraph does not relate in any way I understand to anything I said, so I am going to ignore it completely.
The bottom line is there are a lot of obvious issues which manifestly arose from sloppiness in some combination of plotting, writing and editing. And then we have all these moronic apologists who feel the need to try and explain away every blatant error on the movie's own terms as if Ridley's listening in and taking the criticisms personally.
A sequel would be a terrible idea. This needs to be fixed as best it can be, then left alone; I am actually pretty optimistic right now about a Director's Cut fixing some of the more glaring problems.Edited by GoldenTribe - 6/10/12 at 9:24am
