"Hmmm, we're lost in an alien cave and an unidentifiable snake-looking thing shows up... Let me, A SCIENTIST, treat it like it's a harmless puppy!"

"Father..." Just kill me. Speaking of which, was that old man costume intentionally bad?

I was also annoyed that Idris Elba (the captain) only seemed to have one liners... He's a really good actor but didn't get to show it here.

The squid abortion scene was excellent though, so much tension. The robot was really the showstealer.

They checked the atmosphere and it appeared to be safe (because the cave was actually a ship) so I let that slide, as I did the running from the ship. That's a panicky moment and they probably were busy not stepping on a jagged rock and breaking their ankle.

Not treating the snake thing with due respect was stupid. Agreed.

"Father" was bruuuuuuuutal as I've said a million times. Charlize Theron was uncharacteristically bad.
