yup.... now they are playing Wing Commander....

carrier space battleships, men and women fighter pilots living together, cheesy conflicts between rookies who talk back to their superiors, uninteresting sexual foreplay...and oh sooo lame and cheesy writing....

Which is sad... There is alot of money in the special effects and sets. Not like a spielberg show, but it is all you need...except for a good script, director, and cast.

...oh....the pain....

:confused: Yesterday on " MST3000" they had Space Mutiny and the ships were almost all from scenes in BG. How did Universal allow that?
You are right about the movies shown lately, poor writing but visually exciting. Maybe the directors and writers are relying on their 80's arcade experiences for inspiration.

Default Wing Commander

Todd Moyer was tied to this production who was working with Glen Larson on the Battlestar Pegasus movie. Do you think Wing Commander's production gives us an idea of what the Battlestar Pegasus movie would have been like?

Yep, they wanted walking Vipers similar to the Valkyries on Macross.

Actually I got the impression that Wing Commander The Movie is kinda where Moore is headed....

Wing Commander the movie :vomit:

They took an awesome concept, with an already established story line and visual style and turned it into "Eddie Prinze Jr. as FLASH GORDON!"

The only things that had in common with the real Wing Commander were the names.

Out of order synopsis:
Lots more sex, junior officers flipping tables on drunken senior officers, sex with the enemy, cancer, Cylon virus disables Colonial fighters. LEE Apollo hates Pop, Adama, brother Zac* is killed, PAUL Tigh's wife cheats, Baltar redefines cyber-sex, Starbuck & V. Boomer are chicks, Valerie B. adopts Boxey, Rape, weapon coils for the Galactica that are ejected from a retired ship reads like Trek 101 warp core,plasma last minute 'Aye Captain' retread, stuff?

Zac,*I remember this as accurate, but Apollo blamed the Cylons.

All in just 240 minutes sans ads, Battlefield Earth is getting another shot, go figure?
