There seems to be a certain standard that SciFi must force their movie to adhere to because what other explanation can there there be for a consistency of bland, badly acted and boring stories. Here we have another fantasy adventure which utterly lacks both. Would it have really been that hard to come up with a few novel twists on the genre? With feature films pushing the edges of story telling and concept, are these scripts and filmmakers really the best SciFi can come up with? you would think a show like Battlestar Galactica would have shown it can be done. Or is it a matter of saving a few dollars? Even the Seeker TV show now on is dreadful. Everything is fantasy is recycled it seems. I am excited for next year in film and TV. My hope is the new Conan film along with Red Sonja, Thor, John Carter on Mars will put fantasy and imagination back into this genre. I even have hope for a low budget effort like Tales of an Ancient Empire (yes it has Kevin sorbo and Christopher Lambert, but I loved The Sword and the Sorcerer so I'll give it a try). My hope is to once again see imagination and creative ideas in these efforts (I can not call them films). Please Sci Fi, spend a little more time and money to get better people in front of and behind the camera.
