Re: Two Ways Science Fiction Is Slowly Destroying Itself

Hollywood is running out of ideas. Look at the number of re-dos, retreads and remakes. They redid the Spiderman movies and they were very good. I liked all three. Now they are comming out with ANOTHER re-boot of the original. Is the original even ten years old yet ?

Spiderman reboot
Batman reboot
Judge Dredd reboot
Battlestar Galactica reboot (Though that was pretty good)

I'm just waiting for them to reboot "Green Slime". (you're a not just a geek, but an old geek if you rememeber that).

Re: Two Ways Science Fiction Is Slowly Destroying Itself

Well sci-fi have always been a way of bringing the undercurrents of the current society into the open. It's no coincidence that a pineing (if thats a word) for other times is combined with a rather bleak view of the future.

That usually makes for good books or movies though, but combined with a hollywoodish interest in making money it is just sad. Not to mention the neverending rebooting :roll:

The Battlestar though was very good, and I'm actually quite interested in seeing what they do with Dredd.

Re: Two Ways Science Fiction Is Slowly Destroying Itself

After seeing movie trailers in the theater recently I have changed my stance on retreads. The current crop of new ideas is terrible and I can't blame them for wanting to reboot things that have been proven popular. If Hollywood could come up with new ideas I would be thrilled, but right now the redos are better than the new material.

I disagree with the article. I have always been a fan of the dystopian post-apocalyptic scifi theme. Instead of seeing it as a woe is the human race type thing, I see it as showing humans having to reach deep and find the best of humanity in order to survive against the odds. And I LOVE tie travel stories. Again, it's about infinite possibilities. Pure scifi!

Re: Two Ways Science Fiction Is Slowly Destroying Itself

Time Travel can be a crutch, but I like what they did to rejuvenate the Star Trek franchise. Enterprise was my second to least favorite series. Just like with book to movie, you have to separate the latest movie with the movies of the old. Something has to be done to bring in the younger crowd. I can say, personally, I am not a fan of a lot of the old SciFi stuff. I rarely read any SciFi books and a lot of the old movies bore me.

Re: Two Ways Science Fiction Is Slowly Destroying Itself

To me the new Star trek was a dissapointment. All surface and nothing tasty on the inside :(

Time travel can be realy fun if it is well done, but something I have grow tired of is "alternate universe" stuff. Perhaps a sideeffect of watching a lot of Stargate?

I actually liked the "new" star trek. I was not sure I would... since I love the other ones so much. So I was happily surprised.

Re: Two Ways Science Fiction Is Slowly Destroying Itself

We have a saying in our house "Bad Star Trek Is better than no Star Trek". I detested Voyager at first, but much like Florida fungas it grows on you :shock: I too enjoyed the new movie, although the "alternate time line" gimick is getting a bit overworked. It seems that when interest is waining in a franchise the cure is to change time. If only that worked in real life.

Re: Two Ways Science Fiction Is Slowly Destroying Itself

I was worried it was going to be bad too, but for me it wasn't. Hey, I liked the GI Joe movie, lol, so I guess that's not saying a whole lot! :P You just can't go in expecting it to be like the old.

Re: Two Ways Science Fiction Is Slowly Destroying Itself

Some of these movies you have to go into with no mind. ie: the space stinker call "Space Mutiny" This bomb gets two thumbs up for creative reuse of clips from just about every show you can think of (especially Battlestar Galactica). Other than that I can't think of anything good to say.

Re: Two Ways Science Fiction Is Slowly Destroying Itself

I really enjoyed the new "Trek" and I'm a fan of the old "Trek" movies. I just went in knowing that it was meant to be a reboot and that helped me enjoy it for what it was. The fact that they had a lot of nice tips of the hat to "Trek" history helped. As for the whole time travel thing, it didn't bother me in the least here. Time travel is getting a bit over used in other areas though, I would agree with that. Is today today or is it really yesterday, I don't know.

Re: Two Ways Science Fiction Is Slowly Destroying Itself

I never even heard of "space mutiny"... :lol:[/quote]

Trust me when I say you did not miss a thing, one of the only good things I can say is that it only cost me $2.00 for the tape. I guess that should have been the first clue. But I believe "you can't judge a book by it's cover" great cover. bad movie.
