Right I am looking in to this film and am just in planning phase of this currently. I am by no means a massive Stargate Fan but I do like the original film from my youth.
Some revelations I wish to share about the film, and how there is some very important pieces to the film missing.
Ok so I have been studying the film and various material including the rough draft script.
First of all a deliberate color change when Daniel speaks of an uprising on Earth the flashback scene was set at night not day like in all other versions the theatrical cut has a night / blue tint all other versions appear to be day.
Various missing shots from the film ended up in Stargate SG-1
Now let’s move on to some of the more important details pertaining to the finale.
Their was an extended face off between RA & Daniel that was cut (can not do anything about that)
When RA is clutching Daniels head with the eye weapon on his hand. When the rings are activated not only does it send the Anubis (Jackal) Guard’s severed head up to the ship but it was also meant to chop off RA’s hand in the process and send it down to the Stargate chamber below with Daniel and Sha’uri.
When the bomb is sent up to RA’s ship RA’s children were standing in the ring and was swapped for the Bomb as they became frightened of RA. The children did not get Nuked even though the shit editing here suggests they did it’s just a missing scene. After RA’s ship is detonated the children walk from out the pyramid on the planet squinting in to the sunlight.
The second time the Stargate is activated the shots of it activating are missing. The Stargate on the Alien world activating is also missing.
Some of these cuts appear to be censorship related to maintain a PG / 13 Rating. Some appear to be Budget related but some cuts like the Children not being Nuked make very little sense to be excluded.
Ok now that is settled. If you have any thoughts on Stargate Movie or TV Series from now until the end of July is a good time to share them with me. As If I do decide to start this then it will be some time in August possibly.
