titanic idea

I love John Varley's Titan trilogy (Titan, Wizard, Demon). It's so much fun, and so darn cinematic too. I'd love to see them done as a movie someday. I bet in a few years the special effects will be up to it.

But I've never been able to cast Cirocco Jones in my head. But just now I realized Claudia Black would be the perfect match for that role. She has the perfect strong features and rough beauty for the role, and she's a fine actress too. The other roles aren't so hard to cast, but Cirocco is critical. I guess Uma Thurman would make a good Cirocco too, now that I think of it. Just as long as they don't fuck up the casting like the did with John Constantine.

<3 I love me some Claudia Black. Especially when she's crying-but-not over John somehow.

I loved her as that psycho chick on SG-1 who was beating up and making out with Daniel Jackson at the same time.

She was Pandora too in Queen of the Damned, but they CUT all her lines. Lamers.

Oooooh, Claudia Black as Cirocco could totally work.

For some reason I'm imagining Kathy Bates as Gaea. *laugh*

Oh Kathy Bates would be good. But I remember that in the book she is described as looking like Charles Laughton. Hahahaha!

A shoe with an ogre's foot in it!

Really, I've never seen a Sci-Fi channel "adaptation" that didn't make me want to puke.

Battlestar Galactica

BSG and SG-1/Atlantis can not make up for crimes such as Earthsea and "Mansquito" .. I have a loathe/love relationship with sci-fi. There are three hours/week that I watch and the rest, well, unless it's a rerun of one of the three things I'll watch .. i'd rather watch cooking shows.

There is a rumor that the Sci-Fi channel turned down or is going to turn down the new Doctor Who series because it "was not up to their standards" or whatever.

Think what you want about Doctor Who (I likely think the same), but I've seen several minutes of the leaked screener and it was actually very very good. The people could like... act well.. and it was... you know.. produced, and stuff. I may actually try watching it here when it comes out, assuming the roomate doesn't drive me insane with it.

I had to LOL at their comment if it's true... because uh.. Mansquito? No.

Dune, Earthsea, Riverworld, Lathe of Heaven, they all sucked! I've been very pleasantly surprised by BSG on SciFi, because I was expecting it to suck too. Perhaps it worked because they are treating it more like an original property, and not an adaptation of something, or maybe it's because the original BSG was so easy to top.
