    I found it dragged a bit until the shooting started.

    WTF was the Stargate for if there's a ship that does the same thing?
    There's nothing overtly bad about it, it's just a non-entity.

    I found myself doing the ironing during this movie - that's how boring it is.
    Yup, that sums it up.

    A film to do your ironing to.

    In other other news, in one of the charity emporia down town there's a set of Royal Albert Old Country Roses tea service, of which I have 8 dinner plates, being left behind from the clearance of the Strangelove Parents' house.

    I've just discovered that these are £20 each.

    Since they're hideous I'm taking them down town shortly.

    Stone me.

    That's more than I was interested in.

    The ships take a lot longer, the stargate network is supposed to be nearly instantaneous. The 'ancients' designed and built the gates which were then used by the Goa'uld who designed the ships which are a bit flakey. All documented in the hundreds of episodes of stargate the series with the lovely Amanda Tapping and McGyver.

    Agree its a bit slow but the special effects and storyline are genius.

    Does that make me a Gateian?

    Very probably.

    I watched some of the TV stuff way back in the day but it never really innerested me, much like the movie really.

    ah yes.

    reminds me of one of my favourite put downs.

    Afternoon denizens

    Sunny out, and already 21°C

    I hope people are enjoying it, as overnight it will all turn to cloud and rain for a week or more

    It might be that I started watching a series or so in, and was confused by the sudden appearance of the Goa'uld since the baddy in the film was supposed to be the last of a dying race or some such (assuming I was awake when that bit of the film was on).

    I was equally puzzled when Gallifrey suddenly appeared at the end of the 60s.

    And it's never stated in the film that the spaceship drivers weren't the originators of the Stargate.

    There's a lovely SF (proper SF not Hollywood "SF") story about a transmat device and how someone is documenting the history of this and discovers that originally the users had 10 digits but the current users only have 8 digits, the premise being, I suppose, that the originators of the system got replaced when they ventured to one planet too many.

    It's a variation of "Big Ancestor" in its way.

    The Scotch broth turned out nice again

    One bowl eaten, and three for the freezer. It's very peppery, which I like, even though for many years I didn't use much (if any) pepper in my cooking at all

    And the spare lamb shank plus red wine and redcurrant sauce is also safely freezing.

    Quite a hectic day for cooking yesterday, all in all
