ya know, i’m a little pissed about it. I mean, i really hope they do a good job, but dont fuck with perfection, ya know? I feel like they completely ruined the Stargate after the second or third season of SG1, veering so far from what the original film was about that i couldnt really watch it anymore.
Plus, they will NEVER be able to match that original cast. Jay Davidson as Ra was a once in a life time casting opportunity, and he played that character to PERFECTION. James Spader as the sniveling dork, instead of the sultry asshole that he normally plays? HOW CAN YOU BEAT THAT?! Besides the casting, the sets, the costumes, the details of that film will not be replicated with modern film making. in 1994, the special effects werent ‘the best’ but they were so minimal that you can honestly overlook it. I’m so afraid that they’ll pull a ‘Star Wars Prequel’ and make the entire movie green screen.
sorry, i get a little heated about this. Stargate is one of my top 5 favorite films of all time, any genre, ever.
