I'm actually letting Battlestar Galactica
run only for the ads for various Sci Fi shows, and the green pastures they shot some scenes in is the only appealing part of the movie.
Anyway, the much-ballyhooed trailer for Stargate Universe
aired in the first 15 minutes of the show, and an hour later, SciFi.com had it online. They were never this fast with either Stargate SG-
1 or Stargate Atlantis
Anyway, it's up at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CE_1rmvQWvw
I was... well, not thrilled, not dismayed, just.... eh? You see, it was dark. Did Mallozzi mean dark it was going to be dark, as in we're conserving energy and can afford only three lightbulbs?? I'm tired of the dark visuals in scifi shows. However, what did strike me was a similarity to SGA's "Rising" in that wow, they're in trouble, but the camerawork reminded me too much of Cloverfield
, which was critically acclaimed, sorta, but the camerawork sucked. Take a Dramamine before watching that film, plus everybody basically dies.
SGU doesn't really bear much resemblance to the Stargates we know, at least not that I can see. I'll still check it out, but the trailers for SGA had me going "whoa...." while this one is, okay, been there, done that, gonna go do the wash.
