Any you would want to see?

Maybe Lost City or Be all my sins Remembered, but with extended new space battles, maybe a few new subplots added into the background, some re-edits maybe?

BASMR is pure gold, but imagine if they penned a few more subplots like the Wraith deliberations with Todd, or something going on with the Travellers. And who wouldnt LOVE to see more of the battle over Asuras? Could count all the hives battling around the planet, maybe work in some of the following episode with Todd...

BAMSR was my first thought, I agree with you. The Siege three parter is also a possibility, maybe... except for the fact there's some characters missing now.

BAMSR - The only one that would be worthy/fun enough IMO.

I was definetly left wanting more by the end of it.

deffinatly BAMSR, check out my vid in my sig,
also another they could do is Into The Fire, it in itself without the boring/clip show of a first parter, i could definatly see a better version, but there's only one problem God rest his soul.........

First off, "Children of the Gods" is not being made into a movie. It is merely a 90-minute episode that is getting re-editted.

"Lost City" is already presented on DVD as an 84-minute episode. It's fine as it is. "Be All My Sins Remember'd" is a 42-minute episode. How exactly do you make that into a movie? I don't recall seeing any 42-minute movies... Back in the 1930's, some movies were an hour long, though.

I would like to see more of the Season 5 episode Between Two Fires. Add a ship battle scene between the Tollan and the Goauld.

what about doing a little rework of the original movie??

I highly doubt Ronald Emmerich and Dean Devlin are going to let the SG-1 team touch their movie. ;)

Would they have a choice in the matter? Don't MGM own the rights to all that stuff now?

It's my understanding that MGM holds the rights to the original movie and all future productions. However, I think Emmerich and Devlin still have some creative control when it comes to editting their movie. They don't like SG-1, largely because it's production kept them from making two sequels to their movie. They are very bitter about this. If MGM let the SG-1 team play with the movie, they could be burning their bridge with Emmerich and Devlin, possibly damaging the studio's reputation with other producers, directors, and writers.

I think the Stargate franchise works alot better being a series rather than if Emmerich and Devlin made two more movies... i doubt they would have even done that either, their just moaning because TPTB did a much better job expanding the mythology than they did.

They could even make these movies if they wanted to due to the fact that certain parts of SG-1 are different to the original movie... i much prefer the Goa'uld being parasitic lifeforms rather than the alien being Ra was reveiled to be in the movie.

BTW im not saying they SHOULD do it by no means i just hate it how they are saying that SG-1 ruined their vision...

Agreed.

They had plans to make the movies. Not all sequels get made immediately after the first movie. ;)

MGM isn't interested.


i much prefer the Goa'uld being parasitic lifeforms rather than the alien being Ra was reveiled to be in the movie.
I like both concepts myself.

Their complaints are valid. How would you like it if you wrote a book and got it published with plans to write a sequel. Then the publisher let someone else write the sequel which has nothing to do with your intended sequel. Wouldn't that upset you just a little?

I'd love to see a few of the two part SG1 episodes re-edited and made into 2 hour movies. I'm sure there are extra scenes for those episodes that haven't been seen that could be edited into them.

Apparently, there was a whole 30 + minute scene shot with the team discussing Jack leaving for Washington that we never even saw. . .

Thats the biz. If they have a problem with it as an artist then maybe they shouldnt have sold their rights to get it supported by the studio. It is more the studios than it is theirs. They may have had a good idea but the studio ponied up millions of dollars and the studio is the one that takes the hit if it bombs or reaps the money if it wins.

Another good episode that could be made into a movie is "The Other Guys" from season 6. Or the ending to the season 5 finale could be re-done with a huge battle between anubis and the asgard.

I just tihnk it'd be nice to get the raw pre-cutting room episodes, none of this tweaked for 43minutes rubbish, so we get all the bits that were shot and set to be in but then dropped for time issues, would pad out a bit more character storylines etc..

IMHO of course..

Be All My Sins Remember'd could actually use and bigger edited version to make it even better than it was. Adding several scenes here and there could easily make it into a Threads like episode at least. There is a lot of places they could add important scenes to beef up the story and character interations overall.

I totally agree. There were quite a few episodes where scenes were trimmed to meet the running time. It'd be nice to see them.

BASMR is pure gold, but imagine if they penned a few more subplots like the Wraith deliberations with Todd, or something going on with the Travellers. And who wouldnt LOVE to see more of the battle over Asuras? Could count all the hives battling around the planet, maybe work in some of the following episode with Todd...

Be All My Sins Remembered would be quite good, get some of the people from BSG SFX in it

I would agree with those who mentioned how much of many episodes ended up being cut for length. I'd be more than happy to buy a whole other set of DVDs that put back in all that missing footage. I hear that Bad Guys, for example, lost a big chunk of the plot.

And so did one of the first episodes of the 9th season. Apparently there is a whole chunk of footage with everyone talking about Jack leaving that was cut. Which annoys the heck out of me. They didn't give the character an appropriate exit. He was just 'gone'.
