Product Description

Stargate ~ Stargate

The Stargate universe has expanded so rapidly since 1997, what with three TV series, three additional movies, and even an animated show, that it's possible to overlook the big bang that started it all. This Blu-ray release of director Roland Emmerich's 1994 Stargate theatrical film should help remedy that, especially as it's accompanied by a raft of bonus material. Emmerich and Dean Devlin, his co-screenwriter, envisioned a sci-fi epic with a working title of "Lawrence of Arabia" in Outer Space--an apt description for a big-budget project that, while sometimes burdened with some silly plot details, never fails to impress. As the film begins, archaeologists in Egypt discover the ancient stargate in 1928--yet it isn't until many decades later that the disheveled but brilliant Dr. Daniel Jackson (James Spader), a linguistics expert, figures out that this ancient doorway between worlds can transport humans to the far side of the universe in a matter of seconds. The discovery soon becomes a top-secret military operation, with Colonel Jack O'Neill (Kurt Russell, in a far more serious portrayal than the insouciant character played by Richard Dean Anderson in the Stargate SG-1 television series) leading a mission that lands him, Jackson, and a group of soldiers on a desert planet where a primitive race lives under the heavy hand of Ra (Jaye Davidson, fresh off an Oscar-nominated performance in The Crying Game), an omnipotent Egyptian god who's kept himself alive through the millennia by inhabiting a human body. The visitors get along fine with the peaceful villagers (indeed, Jackson falls in love with one of them), but Ra and his minions are a different story, especially once Ra realizes that O'Neill intends to destroy the stargate, thus prohibiting any further travel to Earth. In the end, despite the story's lofty pretensions (it's suggested that the bad guys visited here some 10,000 years earlier--so might we all be descended from aliens?), lots of stuff gets blown up, and our heroes… well, suffice to say that there aren't a lot of surprises, which is by no means a bad thing.

Stargate is an impressive technical achievement; the sets are magnificent, the effects are convincing (especially since it was made at a time when computer-generated imagery was in an embryonic stage), and the distant planet's inhabitants even speak a version of ancient Egyptian. All of that is explained in the better and more recent of two making-of featurettes contained in the bonus material. Other extras include an unrated, extended (by about eight minutes) cut of the film; featurettes examining the possibility of a real stargate and other pseudo-science; a gag reel; a trivia contest; audio commentary by Emmerich and Devlin; and an interesting picture-in-picture "ultimate knowledge" option in which various experts discuss the production's Egyptian iconography and other details. --Sam Graham --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
The low rating I am giving this disc does not reflect my opinion of the film, but rather my opinion of the discs poor quality. The below average image quality is surprising, considering the fact that this is already the second DVD release of this movie. Not only is the overall image quality not as good as it should be, but to top it off the entire film features a video burn on the right hand side of the picture. Lower end monitors may cut this area off and therefore hide it, but a good screen will feature this irritating flaw. One can only hope that a Superbit or Criterion version of this film will be released one day. The disc presently available is certainly a disapointment.

Format: Blu-ray
"Stargate" is, obviously, the movie that later spawned the hit "Stargate SG-1" TV series, and its spinoffs.

But taken on its own merits, "Stargate" is a pretty entertaining blockbuster with some big flaws. It uncomfortably straddles the fence between "shoot-em-up bombs'n'action" and "mythology sci-fi," but provides a solid villain, some sketchy writing, and the foundation for a hit TV show. Well, it's definitely far better than your average sci-fi blockbuster.

Egyptologist Daniel Jackson (James Spader) has just lost his job, when a mysterious old lady invites him to become involved in a secret military project. Soon he finds out why -- a massive stone ring found in Giza decades ago, with strange symbols on a central ring. When they use his calculations, the Air Force is able to open a wormhole to a distant galaxy.

Obviously a recon team is sent through, led by the grieving Colonel O'Neil (Kurt Russell). This new world is a desert planet, inhabited by a race of primitive human slaves who practically worship the strangers. But things turn deadly when a pyramid ship descends on the desert, and a malevolent "god" decides to obliterate Earth -- using a nuclear bomb O'Neil brought along.

It's a pretty straightforward action plot -- scientist opens gateway to new planet, bad guy shows up and makes trouble, good guys attack bad guy with the help of plucky natives. "Stargate" doesn't add much to the typical formula, but it does dress it up with gilded robes, giant stone statues, glittering starships and sandswept deserts.

In fact, spectacle is what "Stargate" excels at -- it has big armies of invading, big ships, big pyramids, and big battles with Ra's warriors. When it comes to gun battles and explosions, Roland Emmerich does a pretty decent job.

Format: Blu-ray
So having just viewed this Blu Ray version, I must say, aside from the majority of the scenes being very nice by Blu Ray standards, I found the rest of them lacking detail, or simply grainy and fuzzy. Not enjoyable!!! So I'm not sure if it's just my copy or if this was done from a poor source. The difference is very noticeable and almost brings the quality of VHS tape to mind.
Two days prior, I viewed my original DVD version and found it was good all the way through. A consistent 480p by DVD standards. This aside, the extended scenes were great adding much to a already familiar story. Here is hoping they improve the next release. Five stars for the content, but only three stars for the poor transfer. So 3 it is.

Not the best story I have seen in terms of quality of filming and play of the actors. Nevertheless, the subject is very interesting, the movie lasts a while and my interest stayed focused all the way. You must see that movie at least once because of the unusual theme. Relationship to Egypt is interesting, but underexploited. I think that the rythme there is better than in the TV series. Anyway, it looks like a low budget film, not Spielberg... Image quality is questionable at times, mostly in dark scenes, when it can be quite grainy. Otherwise, it is always a pleasure to watch a movie in 1080p.
