Super Awesome Ronald Moore News
Posted by deckard47 on April 22, 2008
I don’t know how many people who read this blog (how many of you are there now?) like BSG, or the latter seasons of DS9, or “First Contact,” but for those of you who liked those things, look at this! Ronals Moore, the creator and producer (and basically one of the main creative forces) of Battlestar Galactica is apparently all set to make a sci-fi trilogy of movies. Oh, and he’ll be making a prequel to John Carpenter’s The Thing.
This is truly cool news. I’d love to see what kind of sci-fi universe he comes up with, despite the fact that this new season of Battlestar is taking some weird fucking turns (really Ron, a mostly female Baltar worship cult…. plus the creepy sex scenes with Torrie and Baltar, and then Cally’s death? Is this really what you want to be doing?). Still, I’m excited about this, and you should be too.
And if you haven’t seen The Thing (the Carpenter remake), you should go see it, right now. It’s honestly one of the best horror movies I’ve ever seen, and it also features a badass, taciturn Kurt Russel nursing some Jim Beam in every single scene. Really though, it’s a great horror movie, especially compared to the shit that’s pouring out now (ahhh, “Prom Night”).
