Why Is The Film Alien So Good...

Harry dean Stanton Meets Alien\

... and the prequel,  Prometheus, so bad?

Alien just tells a story.

Prometheus tries to have meaning, and to make sense of a previous story. It is a self-important bunch of crap. The next film will probably be crap.
Narrative is not crap.

Prometheus has Ego.
Alien just Is.
Alien has Zen; Prometheus is a corporative intelligence as defined by the US Supreme Court:, trying desperately to exercise its right to free speech. It can hardly put two thoughts together, much less attempt free speech.

Prometheus is just marginally better than Alien Versus Predator.
