^ Apparently, most (if not all) of the actual arctic scenes were shot with regular cameras, not high def, which is a damn shame as far as I'm concerned.

Shhhh.

The scenes were shot on 16mm in the arctic, which isn't as sharp as the 35mm they used to shoot Ark of Truth (And, I'm assuming, the rest of Continuum, besides the stock footage), but it's still sharper than HD video.

Off the top of my head, a few shots of the F-16s stuck out (but only a few of them looked like stock; most of them were either practical shots of the planes on the runway or in a hanger with a backdrop-- or CGI).

The commentary mentions the shot of the huge military plane seen after the trio are split up (after the hanger scene), was from "Watergate".
I don't think anything else was reused . If something was, they did a good job of not making it appear to be stock footage.

Right, I do remember the transport plane looking familiar, but I wasn't sure.

Re: Stargate Continuum - Grading and Discussion

It was fun. I'm not really in a nitpicky mood, so I'll just say that I enjoyed it for what it was. Not amazing, but still a fun little ride. It actually felt like they took the first 8 seasons, picked random events from them, and combined them to form one movie, which I thought was funny.

A few random things I didn't like: Major Davis was in the opening sequence but then disappeared. I would have liked him to have a larger role.

What is Old Cam up to? Is he just living in hiding? Kinda reminded me of "Benders Big Score" when Fry goes back in time and lives out his life. I mean, Cam saved the day, but what did he do after he killed Ba'al? Did he travel around the world with his grandpa?

I was actually hoping that he was going to turn out to be his own grandfather. It would have been great, especially with the foreshadowing from Carter earlier in the movie where she tells him that he is a living grandfather paradox.

Re: Stargate Continuum - Grading and Discussion

I was totally thinking of Futurama with the Grandfather thing. I was starting to think he would be his own grandpa and that was him as the Captain, but then I thought, no, that would be way too comical.

Re: Stargate Continuum - Grading and Discussion

Ba'al's Time travel machine was frickin' great and clever too, he must have read some SG-1 mission reports to come up with that, he certainly had ties to the Trust and his implementation was clever as well.





Has to be one of the best clever uses of the stargate system I have ever frelling seen.

There might be a way for alt-cameron to get to back to the future time and warn of the time travel machine's existence.

Re: Stargate Continuum - Grading and Discussion

You know, that's a good point. Even though Ba'al went back in the final timeline and failed to change history, the machine is still there. It's entirely possible that it's not as spiffy as the one the unhappened SG-1 found, since that was Ba'al's second build of the time machine, and he had eighty years and the resources of the entire galaxy to improve it. The one he first built in the proper timelines to go back in time was probably a bit more crude than the version we saw.

I wonder what happened to the Ori in Baal's timeline.
