Stargate Origines: Catherine (2018)
The Stargate SciFi Franchise turned out a movie that started it all and a long-running series. Last night, desperate for new programming I turned to the above-captioned movie on Amazon Prime. Stargate: Atlantis was another spin-off where the crew from Earth fought space vampires. This one was even worse than that one. Straight to video, of course.
It seemed to have been written by USC Film School graduates, incorporating all of the rote, gratuitous pap that they teach. The evil people were Nazis, of course, the casting was weak in the extreme, make-up could have been managed by my 9-year-old granddaughter, There was the obligatory homosexuality and it was painful to keep watching. The only reason that I saw it through was to review it for all of you. I give it a solid 1 out of a possible 10. I may have seen worse sci-fi films, I just don’t recall any worse except for Priest or Pluto Nash. All three tied.
The new government policy says that you can leave your home and live-at-work where you can manufacture widgets while locked inside the factory 24/7. Starve at home or starve at work? It’s the worker’s paradise.
ACME Failed – again
How much goes to the Big Guy?
(Gateway Pundit) President Brandon is asking Congress for $33bn (£27bn) in military, economic, and humanitarian assistance to support Ukraine – although he insisted that the US was not “attacking Russia”.
Mr. Brandon said it was “critical” for US lawmakers to approve the deal, which he said would help Ukraine defend itself.
The proposal includes more than $20bn in military aid, $8.5bn in economic aid, and $3bn in humanitarian aid.
Is the US at war with Russia?
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Thursday refused to comment on the far-left lunatic chosen to oversee the Biden Regime’s new ‘Disinformation Governance Board.’ Psaki was asked to elaborate on this new Orwellian board and she didn’t offer up any specifics related to the scope and authority of the board.
Is the US at war with the American people?

You know how when you lose cable for a day, they rebate you that?
Can you get some money back for watching that stargate flick?
Thanks for the sacrifice.
I’ll ask – but I’m not holding my breath.
If the p-RESIDENT says something is critical, you can bet your sweet bippy his handlers told him so.
They should always dress the chief handler and whisperer in an Easter Bunny costume. It simply lends more credibility to Brandon than he has on his own.
Taking one for the team. But not for naught: Romans 5:3-4 “…but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character,…”
Thanks for the heads up proving Hollywood has no ability to be original in the art of film. Example: How many Batman remakes can they do? Robert Pattinson, Twilight’s Edward Cullen remade as a brooding depressed tough guy? No thank you.
The endless remakes simply underscore the woke establishment’s inability to do something refreshing and exciting. There are more Spiderman movies than Batman. At least I think that there are. 2013 – Man of Steel was an exception to the remakes. Russel Crowe, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, etc. did the franchise proud. But the good ones are painfully rare.
In this case, the movie was so BAD that I kept thinking that it. HAD to get better.
I did some research since writing the blog. It was a series with a $1 million budget that they cut and pasted into a 104 minute feature film. That explains a lot.
Thanks for steering me away from Stargate Origins. I don’t want to see something worse than the 1984 version of Dune.
Sadly, it is worse than the. 1984 version of Dune.
Re: the cartoon. I like the smiley face in the fire.

Biden Regime’s new ‘Disinformation Governance Board.’
Is there any enabling legislation to support this? Do the (P)regressives even concern themselves with such minor details?
November can’t come soon enough, assuming the election goes as expected and isn’t stolen in the middle of the night. Maybe the police ought to be standing next to Drop Boxes instead of accosting parents who do not like what the Marxist School Boards are doing to their children (the parents, that is, not as Biden said yesterday that kids were theirs…a total Marxist/Communist statement).
It’s just another part of the Department of Homeland Security – another one of the Hydra’s heads. They don’t need no stinkin’ badges – or legislation. Since when did democrats concern themselves with the law except to persecute their political adversaries?
Grooming children is a major part of the communist program for Amerika.
Geez. Walt is doing RPM’s in his grave. This is beyond bad. Maybe Disney collapses in on itself, like a black hole…altho we did enjoy a late evening wine and cheese in the Epcot France replicated cobble street…that was cool. Once.
Disney lost $34 billion since the woke bullshit came out into the open. They’ll lose more.
Why do I get the feeling that Stargate Origins: Catherine is basically discount Indiana Jones #5 (upcoming in 2023). At least the SO:C trailer gives off strong vibes of a pastiche of Raiders of the Lost Ark with Stargate mythology thrown in.
PS: The money is on IJ#5 killing off Indy actual (Ford) and replacing him with grrrlpower Indy (Phoebe Waller-Bridge).
I didn’t know that there was another Indiana Jones film coming out. If he’s replaced it should be by a black female that is transitioning to male if it is to be the least bit woke. That should be the plot.
Stargate Origins: Catherine could have been interesting – with a different script, different actors, and the budget necessary to make it look like something other than a high school production. There is a lot you can do with a stargate. The Nazis made it Uber Cliche, the choice of a homosexual Brit male as the male love interest made it less than credible, and then there were the natives on the alternative Earth who were trying to bugger each other to the delight of the principle cast.
Mike_C it’s a lot like the latest Harry Potter franchise film – Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore where Jude Law (Dumbledoor) and Mads Mikkelsen (Gellert Grindelwald) are dudes in love who are having a spat over who has the biggest wand. Each wants to scratch the other’s eyes out.
The bad guys are white homosexual male nazis…because you need to have a politically correct bad guys. It was cool to have Mads and Jude going at each other because they were queer and in love.
It makes me want to yak.
The Left ruins everything it touches, which always becomes a total yakfest. And I like both actors…in movies that is.
The Russia-Ukraine conflict should not be on our radar. The Ukraine has been a money laundering country for the democrats for years. My inner anti-US communist thoughts are let the Russians re-assimilate Ukraine so it will destroy the millions of kickbacks the dems children are getting
Except that the democrats and some rinos call for the assassination of a head of state (Putin) who we are not at war with – almost every day.
Fair question: If we fund Putin’s war opponent – Like Mr MAGU is doing regularly, a billion here, a billion there, of OUR money – doesn’t that by association place us “in war” with Russia?
Just because boots are [supposedly…wink, wink] not on the ground doesn’t mean we don’t have skin in the game by way of the backdoor to make for better optics to the unsuspecting.
We’re in a cold war with Russia. We’re not shooting nuclear weapons at them and they’re not shooting nuclear weapons at us – but it’s still a war. It’s like the war that we fought with them before. The war had rules, but make no mistake, it was a war.
We moved glacially and the Russians moved glacially and it justified the spending of trillions of dollars over the years. Now a trillion is treated like Monopoly money, but it wasn’t then.
Movies: What about that idiotic one where Anthropogenic Climate Change caused the Atlantic Ocean to freeze solid while you watched?
Is the US at war with Russia ? Absolutely. Look at the total economic blockade, and tell me otherwise. This makes the starvation of Germany in WWI look like schoolyard games.
Only with nukes.
Is the US at war with the American people? Undeniably. When was the last time that the FedGov did anything that benefitted anyone in the US except themselves?
