In the late seventies, I was a huge Star Wars fan, so naturally I went to see Battlestar Galactica. To my disappointment, I saw a film that merely wanted to sail on the waves of the mighty Star Wars. I was, however, a loyal follower of the TV series. What can I say, I was really hungry for sci-fi in those days. Most of it was bad though. The only filmmaker who could match the greatness of Star Wars was Ridley Scott. I'm still waiting for the next sci-fi master, someone who will rock my world all over again. Will it happen? I sorta lost hope by now.
First the colors weren't the same. Then the different music became a problem. Soon the fans of the 1978 film will demand that Cavill's face needs to be digitally replaced with Christopher Reeve's head.
I have an idea! Let's adapt Williams' music and digitally add Christopher Reeve to Superman III and IV. We can really turn those into awesome movies if we... Oh wait.
Proof that vibrant colors and Williams' theme (the 2 laws for great filmmaking according to the average JWfan) are no guarantee for greatness.
