Film

B5 Film?

Posted by dormouse (4th May 2004, 12:00) - http://aintitcool.com

Interpreting jms's hints so far that the new Babylon 5 project will be a film. Firefly, B5 and Trek, aren't we lucky. I think I'd prefer new series, but this is next best :)

Let's hope it sucks a lot less than either A Call to Arms or Legend of the Rangers...

And also, in protest at my newly acquired rank...

lol! It was apparently entirely coincidental! I generally feel that A Call to Arms and Legend of the Rangers showed great potential, but weren't very good in themselves. jms doesn't seem to be very good at writing pilots.

i thought Call to Arms was pretty good, though Legend of the Rangers was variable. will have to watch ACTA again to check ;)

Google: Results 1 - 10 of about 752 for freddled. Not sure if this should be worrying or not.

It has to be said one of my main gripes with call to arms was the music... It seemed to consist of a small child playing with an electric keyboard. Also, some really bad lines ("Those are either drakh or the weirdest pizza delivery trucks I've ever seen") which tried to be funny but weren't...

Legend of the Rangers suffered a fair amount of lameness (eg the ridiculous targeting system for the ship), and had an overfull cliché quota.

I must agree with gaspode, the ideas behind Legend were good, the execution of them was abysmal.

Also, maybe JMS's ego is to be getting in the way of him getting help with writing pilots ...
