Third Stargate Movie  
I don't consider casting to be spoilery, but I suppose I should just in case...



Yes. I am happy. Jack-centric movie? That sounds lovely. Let's hope RDA isn't rusty and puts a ton of effort into it. No Vala? That's icing on the cake for me. No offense to the Vala fans, but I really want a movie that focuses on the classic members of SG-1. I feel that Vala really took away from the dynamic that I always loved. And that's putting it rather kindly.

(I wonder if I would have liked her better if she had been a recurring antagonist like Maybourne or if they would have given her more scenes apart from Daniel.)

I'm not deluded enough to think we'll get something straight out of the early seasons. That's impossible now. But a Jack-centric movie is a step in the right direction. When RDA was on the show, the show managed to be focused on him AND the team and they pulled it off.

If this has minimal ship, and we get confirmation it will have a team slant, I will score the trifecta! Ha!

So we'll see. I'm cautiously optimistic with this news :)

I wonder why you would worry about that? Not because one of your flist is spoilerphobe freak (even if she broke the news to you yesterday) *whistles innocently*

I am hoping for teamy goodness...but I'm always hoping for that. And I agree with everything you said. (Although I think I warmed up to Vala more than you did in Season Ten). I think she would've been awesome as a Maybourne-like adversary popping in for space pirate adventures. I did like the Vala/Adria arc though, and I was really dreading it when I first heard the concept.

There were a lot of things I liked about Vala but just didn't vibe with what SG-1 always was. So her character and her arcs independent from SG-1 were fine. Then you place it in the context of the show and add her to SG-1 and it didn't work so well.

Recurring status might have relieved that contridiction.

but I really want a movie that focuses on the classic members of SG-1.

There's still the chance that Cam Mitchell will be a part of the movie, which would take away from the "classic" slant.

*sigh* I guess we cant have everything.
Working for the Mandroid: breathemoonshayde on January 4th, 2009 04:01 am (UTC)
Aw. I actually like Cam. No beef with him :) So if he's in it, that won't bother me at all as long as there is substantial Jack :)

Care to point me to all the newsy goodness? Is it on Gateworld or somewhere else?

Thanks!

Working for the Mandroid: Nevermoonshayde on January 4th, 2009 04:46 am (UTC)
Isn't it? Now, I just have to wait to see what the movie is about and all, but I'm happy for a Jack centric tale :)

I almost didn't LOL

I consider some casting stuff spoilery but other stuff not so much. Like if the news had been that Janet would be in the movie then I would feel really spoiled.

but better to err on the side of caution

You and I seem to be on the opposite ends of the spectrum...the news pretty much killed SG-1 for me seeing as I don't like Jack and I love Vala :(

I won't be watching the movie, but I hope you enjoy the film.
Working for the Mandroid: Battle Readymoonshayde on January 4th, 2009 04:38 am (UTC)
If you don't like Jack and like Vala that would do it.

I love Jack and I miss him muchly, so I can't help but be excited by the news.

I...can't get excited. :( I loved early Jack, loved his connection with everyone, the chemistry between RDA and Michael Shanks was phenomenal. Later seasons killed my love for Jack. I won't be seeing this one if it's later seasons Jack, but I'll be checkin' the Flist because if Early seasons Jack makes an appearance (or Mini-Jack) then I'll gladly watch. Would like it if Vala were around at least a little bit, just for continuity's sake if nothing else. Will pout if Cam's not there though, I really enjoy that character. I also can't imagine a Stargate movie without Daniel, but I guess that's a given...I hope. :)
Working for the Mandroid: Like Mindsmoonshayde on January 4th, 2009 05:34 am (UTC)
If they try to go the classic team route for nostalgia (and money) I won't complain. But if it's Jack centric, RDA really has to bring it.

I have no idea who else is in it, though. Hopefully, at least the classic team. I won't complain if Cam is around.

Yay-thanks for letting us know:)
I totally agree with you about Vala. I love Claudia to death, but her character was definitely a distraction. And I'm glad she and Ben got to work together again, but they never really did (which of course, is probably due to people saying, we don't need Farscape intruding, etc.).
Anyways-I truly hope that RDA does really well, and maybe the movie will be an awesome version of a massive 'oldie' episode:)

There's a confirmed new movie? That's brilliant! And with Jack! *dances dance of fangirl squee*

(I wonder if I would have liked her better if she had been a recurring antagonist like Maybourne or if they would have given her more scenes apart from Daniel.)

I would have. I loved/love Claudia Black, and I still have a massive girl crush on her. I think she's a fantastic actress, and I'd love to see her in almost anything, really. I just hated how they bent everyone else out of shape to fit her in as a viable team member. It just didn't work for me, and I ended up disliking pretty much everyone except her. heh

I enjoyed her in the first episodes of season 9 for the most part that she was in. Those episodes weren't perfect. There were so many ways the writers went wrong for the show and the characters, but overall, I liked them and wasn't put off the show or anything. I especially enjoyed Daniel in those episodes. I definitely would have preferred for Vala to have stayed a questionable rogue. Actually, she was never questionable to me. After what she did to the SG members she stranded in space and the way she treated Daniel... *g* But I don't think many agreed with me about that, though that hasn't changed my mind in the slightest.

I haven't watched the end of season 10, though I'd intended to. It just sort of faded away, and since then I've just never been able to bring myself to watch it. I wasn't even remotely interested in the other two movies either, but this one sounds like something I *might* be interested in. I'll definitely wait and see what everyone else thinks of it. :-)

If this has minimal ship, and we get confirmation it will have a team slant, I will score the trifecta! Ha!

So we'll see. I'm cautiously optimistic with this news :)


Or this. *g*
Working for the Mandroid: archaeologistmoonshayde on January 4th, 2009 02:22 pm (UTC)
Yeah. I'm cautiously optimistic. Once I hear more I'll be able to have a better idea. It's just nice to hear that this gesture is being made :)
madaboutdanny: didmadaboutdanny on January 4th, 2009 12:37 pm (UTC)
Glad you like the new. To me this could be the Sg1 tombstone. The third movie will be about Jack...I hope for you it won't be the dumb expressionless Jack of Continuum, and since this will be The confirmation movie I doubt we'll see much of a Jack/Daniel either, not to mention the way TPTB dismissed Vala, but since BW don't like Vala that is not really a surprise.
Working for the Mandroid: AoT Teal'cmoonshayde on January 4th, 2009 02:24 pm (UTC)
The last two movies had next to no ship so I'm hoping this one won't either.

Like I said I am cautiously optimistic. There are a lot of things that could go wrong. If it's Sam/Jack loaded I won't be happy. But I do like the idea that we'll be getting a Jack heavy movie. I've missed him :(
rdamelrdamel on January 4th, 2009 02:39 pm (UTC)
Hooray!

I was delighted when I read Brad's comments yesterday. I had been afraid they'd changed their minds, since we hadn't heard anything for some time.

I love Jack (almost all the time) and RDA, so I have high hopes that if they have a good script that it'll be a good movie, and remind us of the teamy goodness of earlier seasons. Hard to say if we can get that lucky, but I'm sure hoping hard.

The hard part is waiting over a year for this to appear. I just hope RDA is working on losing the extra weight he said he promised some exec he'd lose, if they agreed to the movie. Having lost more than that myself many years ago, I know it's not easy.

Here's hoping for a great new movie full of teamy goodness and JACK!!

Working for the Mandroid: breathemoonshayde on January 5th, 2009 12:08 pm (UTC)
Jack! I'm just excited about that part alone LOL

I agree with you, though. I think most fans would be happy if we had a movie where we had Jack doing something sutantial and not just regualred to jokes. He can have something hearty AND joke around at the same time.

If you're truly blessed, then we'll have a team movie with a Jack-slant, which would be similar to how the show was conceptualized.

*grins like an idiot too*

Hee. I just hope the movie has some meaty substance to it. :)

And team. We need classic TEAM.
