So it looks like the Stargate franchise is returning. The snag being that this is a return to the original 1994 movie by that production team, and they're doing a re-imagining with a movie trilogy.

I'm not sure how I feel about this.

I'm getting sick of reboots. Can't they come up with something different?

So basically, the major Hollywood studios are never going to produce any new movies or stories ever again, instead just rehashing & retreading the same tired old properties every 20 to 40 years. Just like the comics.

Soon, every person will have their own movie of their own personal imagining & canon just for themselves. I look forward to the movie of Masao's version of the Romulan War.

The plot will be an updated version of the original Stargate trilogy that never happened, most likely. Problem is that this isn't 1994, and this trilogy is going to fail miserably as honestly outside of the fanbase (who you've automatically alienated by completely bypassing the tv franchise that they are fans of) very few people are going to care enough to pay to see a trilogy based on a 20-year-old movie...especially a movie from Emmerich, which do tend to be in the same league as Syfy mockbusters as far as well-written plots go.

Can we make it a sequel to the original movie, put Kurt Russell in an eyepatch, and call it Escape from Abydos? That might be watchable.

Actually, I've only ever seen the film; I've never watched the TV series or its sequels. But this kinda reminds me of the planned BSG movie that supposedly takes place in the original series universe as opposed to nuBSG. All I have to say about that is...why?

You're doing it wrong.

I second Tim's assessment. The 1994 Stargate movie is to SG-1 as the Kristy Swanson Buffy movie is to the Sarah Gellar Buffy TV series. Cute, funny, but doesn't really count.

The best line: "I wanna make sure you get one thing right. It's O'Neill, with 2 L's. There's another Colonel O'Neil with only one L - he has no sense of humor at all."

Fuck Stargate in particular, and franchise reboots in general, say I. Or should that be the other way around?

Yeah, that's what she said.

I think that between both Star Trek and Babylon 5, I just didn't want to invest in watching another show.

That's what Netflix is for.

Seven (at most) TV series is your lifetime maximum? Wow. At the moment, just in terms of hour-long dramas, my DVR is programmed to record ten currently running series. Plus a few nonfiction shows, and numerous half-hour and quarter-hour comedies and cartoons.

I, um... I might be watching too much TV.

Watching Stargate Atlantis was actually quite fun to do, though I would not compare it to any of the Star Trek series. But, hey, its Sci-Fi and worth to be watched in my opinion (at least to spend the gap until a new Star Trek series is emerging).

But a reboot of the film? I was never found of the Kurt-Russel-Stargate movie and I don't care to see the same story over and over again, only with a different set of actors.
