Re: is the stargate movie any good

I found the movie unimpressive. It didn't make much use of the potential of its concept, and I found it very slow-paced, a long movie in which not a whole lot happens. I feel that once SG-1 hit its stride (which took at least a couple of seasons), it often managed to pack more ideas and story into the first 20 minutes of an episode than the movie was able to do in a full 2 hours.

Still, given that the series is a direct continuation (allowing for a few tweaks that put it in a slightly alternate reality), I suppose it would be appropriate to watch the movie at least once before moving onto the much richer TV franchise.
