yeah, im kinda biased against those roman empire type movies. its like the gay version of those victorian period piece chick flicks. just not my thing. except for the pasolini ones, oddly enough.

That thing is generally referred to as the 'space jocky.'

Rumor has it that giant penis will be featured in Prometheus.

I feel a bit Victorian. I never thought of it as a penis until someone pointed it out to me.

Then I found it less interesting.

a humiliating demotion, a million pushups and a lot of screaming by the alien sargeant in the next scene.

Giger became a bit stale to me after I started looking at his body of work.

It's not bad or anything, it's just a bit monotonous. Like thirteen-year-old high brow.

Like he read a bunch of Freud and took it a bit too seriously.

I like how there were two different designers for Earth ship and alien ship.
