The Last Stand writer Simon Kinberg. Seriously, the guy had TWO attempts at the Dark Phoenix saga and screwed them both up. How people like him still get work just shows in Hollywood once you’re in, you’re in.

I made several attempts to get into Ron Moore's Battlestar show, but I found it painfully ugly and aesthetically defective, the entire shooting and cutting style comes across as a much too heavy handed and sophomoric attempt to duplicate Saving Private Ryan or something. It has never worked for me. It is odd, because I know the whole series was an enormous success, but I really do not get it

That's fine. To me, it's one of the best things on TV in the last two decades. I watched the original show, just for curiousity's sake, and couldn't get into that at all.

Yes, the original is not very good, remarkable visual effects for the time from Dykstra, and great music, but otherwise, yes, not a good show

The filming style, quick cuts and fast zoom ins and outs were annoying. It had high production values for a television show at that time. The music worked in context of the series for the most part. I much prefer the original series music but it wouldn't fit in context of the reboot.

I really loved the Mini Series and first season and enjoyed season two on the strength of the cast and performances. It was very well written, a character study and a serious attempt at retelling the original story.

But it became clear they didn't know where they were taking the story and it just got ludicrous. The show remained to negative, characters were so selfish, mean and cruel with no redemption. It all became so depressing. That pretty much ended much enthusiasm for the series.

I still think the Mini Series and first season were a knock out as far as production, writing and performances.

I remember all the hate for the reboot when it was first announced, including Richard Hatch kinda poo-pooing it after all the work (and money) he put into his Galactica Second Coming film. Then they gave him a role in the new one and all of that went away.

The original was good for the time period it was released. Everything seemed to be very sexist, skimpy clothing, and Go-Team. Feel good Tv with some drama. I liked it, am still a fan, but loved the new one as well. Like its predecessor it was a child of the times and fit the era in which it was released.

Not sure how I feel about a reboot though. Can't judge until I see what they do with it....

Surely, that should be sentiments familiar to you?

(sorry, couldn't help myself).

I embrace good things. Positivity, inspiration, beauty, love, kindness, friendship, loyalty.
My negativity is the result of the negative, dark times we live in. wink

yeah, I found the cruelty and darkness a bit much, and - like you said, those fast cuts etc, just not enjoyable, the old show, more enjoyable, not a 'great show' exactly, but more escapist for sure.

Yes, but at least The Last Stand was a huge financial success and until Dark Phoenix, the blame for the film's creative failure fell on Brett Ratner. However, when the story mistakes in TLS were duplicated in DP, then yeah, Kinberg was a main reason.

I'm quite onboard with a Time Burton Addams Family because being based on a source before it was tv or film means there's more room for slight differences in interpretation.

Much more difficult would be a Munsters film or series that would please everybody. Being a Universal horror fan means I naturally prefer that show to TAF, but how can anyone ever replace that cast? The last attempt was AWFUL. Certainly Fred Gwynne is a one-off.
