What do You Think? Universal Studios Averages One "Battlestar 1978" Related Screw-Up (Act of Intentional Sabotage) Every Year Now?

 

May 2015 - Crappy box art, more of Universal Studios unhealthy preoccupation with widecreening (stretching like Play-Doh) television shows from the 1970s with dubious results. Let's also not forget 12 year old interviews with the cast and crew (particularly when Glen A. Larson was still alive with no follow-up tribute to the man after his unfortunate passing), no upgrades to the visual effects, and you have yet another gargantuan...."Battlestar 1978".... related screw up (act of intentional sabotage of a "Battlestar 1978" product)....from Universal Studios with this Blu-Ray release.


April 8th, 2014 - The...."Battlestar 1978"....movie Universal Studios keeps announcing every two years via fake press releases like this and keeps not making. Scott Paglen's whereabouts a year later?


August 3rd, 2012 - Bryan Singer sputters and stutters his way through the falsehood that he had been working on a supposed..."Battlestar 1978".... movie for the previous 10 months. (Announced on October 21st, 2011.)

 

 
 
October 21st, 2011 - The whereabouts of John Orloff four years later? Just wondering. Yes, the earliest fake Battlestar movie claim of Universal Studios captured on video anyway. The fake..."Battlestar 1978"....movie press releases of Universal Studios go back further than this. Those not on videotape but in article form accessible from any search engine presently.

The Universal Studios Stealth Marketer Has Returned To Amazon.com With Meaningless Revisions To His Previous Meaningless Post. Still Talking About The B.G. Telemovies. Typical.




http://www.amazon.com/Battlestar-Galactica-Definitive-Collection-Blu-ray/dp/B00Q2OQNCM/ref=sr_1_1?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1432165887&sr=1-1&keywords=battlestar+definitive

Thus pushing the legitimate negative reviews even further down the page and on to page 2. Still not discussing the topic of the thread without having acquired a legitimate purchase of the item either. To Universal Studios delight no doubt.

Because Television Doesn't Get Any More Boring Than This



http://www.syfy.com

In between sending your damaged...."Battlestar Definitive Collection"....Blu-Rays back to http://www.amazon.com for full refunds, you can be bored to tears watching the usual drivel on the SyFy Channel. Such as...."Troy: Street Magic...

Because magic on the streets is just as boring as anywhere else.

Want To See What a "Stealth Marketing Post" Looks Like On Amazon.com?



http://www.amazon.com/Battlestar-Galactica-Definitive-Collection-Blu-ray/product-reviews/B00Q2OQNCM/ref=cm_cr_dp_see_all_btm?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending


quote - Does anyone remember....the syndicated BATTLESTAR GALACTICA Telefilms / Compilation movies...? When BATTLESTAR GALACTICA was first released in syndication in 1981, it was shown in the "Compilation / Telemovie" Format. Episodes were edited together to form (more-or-less) stand-alone movies. All of these TV movies feature specially-created "movie-style" Opening title and End sequences as well as all-new narration and the occasional "looping" (redubbed) lines by Lorne Greene and Dirk Benedict (a few of Apollo's lines are looped as well...by someone who sounds NOTHING like Richard Hatch!). These movies also feature NEVER-BEFORE SEEN Special Effects shots (the Underside f/x shots of the Galactica are really cool - and these alternate f/x weren't seen during the ABC telecast or on DVD or Blu-Ray). These Compilation Movies were shown across the U.S. and around the world. Watching these movies is a fun experience....almost like a peek into an "alternate" Galactica universe with scenes and stories rearranged to form an interesting, if not always consistent whole. For instance....MURDER IN SPACE is a compilation of "Murder on the Rising Star" and "The Young Lords"...in this movie, Starbuck is accused of murdering Ortega. He ESCAPES from the Galactica [differing from the events of "Murder on the Rising Star where he CHANGES HIS MIND about escaping] and crash lands on the planet Attilla and helps the children rescue their father from the Cylon outpost. He is rescued by Apollo and Boomer who THEN take him back to the Galactica to stand trial for Ortega's murder. These Compilation movies aren't just simple hack-jobs by the "editing elves" - a lot of thought went into creating these movies to form a consistent narrative. One of the more interesting Compilation movies is EXPERIMENT IN TERRA. This film opens with an Astronaut (from Earth!) finding Adama's Galactica Logbook floating in Space - he opens the book and the history of the Cylons unfolds with all-new narration by Lorne Greene accompanied by Ralph McQuarries' beautiful full-color paintings. About 12 minutes of "Saga of a Starworld" is shown depicting the destruction of the Colonies and the progress of the fleet in their journey to Earth. Next the film seques into the famous GALACTICA: 1980 episode "The Return of Starbuck" - but all scenes with Angela and the Star-child are removed and (get this!) Starbuck ESCAPES from the lost planet and returns to the fleet....just in time to seque into the episode "Experiment in Terra"! All of these Compilation movies feature fun "alternate" scenes like this. As your might expect, the 2-part episodes were edited together into a single telefilm...and all of these also feature "expanded" (and in some cases never-before-seen) scenes! The following is a Complete List of all 14 BATTLESTAR GALACTICA Compilation Telefilms. NBC / Universal please release these "lost" GALACTICA TV movies as a DVD Box Set! (1) BATTLESTAR GALACTICA (pilot film) (2) LOST PLANET OF THE GODS (expanded version of "Lost Planet of the Gods, Part 1 and 2") (3) GUN ON ICE PLANET ZERO (expanded version of "Gun on Ice Planet Zero, Part 1 and 2") (4) THE PHANTOM IN SPACE (compilation of "The Lost Warrior" and "The Hand of God" (5) SPACE PRISON (compilation of "Murder on the Rising Star" and "The Young Lords") (6) SPACE CASANOVA (compilation of "Take the Celestra" and "The Long Patrol") (7) CURSE OF THE CYLONS (compilation of "The Magnificent Warriors" and "Fire in Space" (8) THE LIVING LEGEND (expanded version of "The Living Legend, Part 1 and 2") (9) WAR OF THE GODS (expanded version of "War of the Gods, Part 1 and 2") (10) GREETINGS FROM EARTH (expanded version of the 2-hour special "Greetings From Earth" (11) MURDER IN SPACE (compilation of "Murder on the Rising Star" and "The Young Lords") (12) EXPERIMENT IN TERRA (compilation of "The Return of Starbuck" and "Experiment in Terra" (13) MISSION: GALACTICA - THE CYLON ATTACK (compilation of "Fire in Space" and "The Living Legend, Part 1 and 2" - this movie was release Theatrically on released on VHS tape) (14) CONQUEST OF THE EARTH (compilation of "The Night the Cylons Landed, Part 1 and 2" and about 10 minutes of "Galactica Discovers Earth"). These 14 Compilation Movies are an important part of the World-wide BATTLESTAR GALACTICA franchise. It would be GREAT if they were released on DVD and Blu-Ray. If you agree, please Write to: Universal Studios Home Entertainment, 10 Universal City Plaza, Universal City, CA 91608 USA. - unquote

In Universal Studios hands, stealth marketing is always used to try and divert attention away from the truth and the flawed nature of its defective products. This post was put up on Amazon.com to try and divert attention away from the two previous negative reviews this Blu-Ray set got. (1) This post is not a verified purchase, (2) It engages in mindless jibber-jabber (a filibuster) to try and divert attention away from the negative reviews (3) It has nothing to do with the topic in the review section (4) It is long in length pushing the negative reviews further down the page (5) It arrived mere days after the two most previous and honest negative reviews were posted, (6) Its objective is to change the subject at all costs, to not let the public know (until it's too late) that they are buying an overpriced, defective product. (7) It proposes a knowingly futile endeavor. That merely writing Universal Studios will correct a problem. When has Universal Studios ever listened to the public? Especially "Battlestar Galactica" fans? Never. (8) Rather than fix problems before or after they arise, Universal Studios has  always used stealth marketing to try and hide the problems it knowingly creates with the..."Battlestar Galactica"...property. Such as now, on Amazon.com.

When Defective Products Are Released To The Public, The Truth Comes Out Sooner Or Later. The Few Professional Reviews Didn't Pick Up On This? Could There Be a Reason? $$ Under The table?

quote - By the lords of Kobol... Where to start...first off, I liked the idea of widescreen and standard screen in this set so you can watch from a different perspective. Second, I am not too happy at the Blu Ray conversion of this set. I guess I am used to buying Blu Ray sets and seeing a HUGE difference in screen definition and clarity of images. IE-Batman from 1966, ANY of the Star Trek Blu Rays or other Blu Ray sets that you can tell there is a HUGE DIFFERENCE.

BSG on the other hand was ok at best. I have the orignal DVD set from 2004 and I compared both discs. Upon start up I really thought that there was something wrong with my set that maybe this was not a Blu Ray set! It's that shocking to me that you really do not see a huge difference from this release compared to the DVD set in 2004.

Blu Ray is a step up from the original 2004 set, but not as good as the other sets mentioned above. With other Blu Ray sets you have that look of watching LIVE TV and you can tell that who ever did the up convert from standard to HD/Blu Ray knew what they were doing.

I have always held Universal in a low regard with their double sided disks or lack of good quality DVD releases. On this set, you can tell that they did not spend a lot time, money or energy into really putting out a good product. Sound quality is good just like the 2004 set and I am listening to it with an Onkyo 2015 5.1 surround sound 4K upconvert system. I am watching this set on a 2 year old Samsung 55' LED 3D TV with the Onkyo UPCONVERT 4K receiver and still the images are lack luster at best. The ships and the space scenes with the special affects are just ok and do not pop out at you like you would see in Star Trek etc. It looks like they upconverted the regular scenes on the bridge, on the planets etc but the battle scenes still look standard definition to me and you can see the back and forth quality as the show progresses through the episode. I know some of you out there will say " This was made in the late 70's, what do you expect? " Well to that being said, I say look at what CBS did to Star Trek TOS. That set is amazing, and you can tell they spent money and time on it!

I was really looking forward to this set and to see the huge differences from standard definition to high def but its really not that big of a difference in my book. I am looking over all the other reviews on here and quite frankly I do not see what all the hype is about for this set. Did anyone really watch these and pop them into your blu ray player?

I love BSG and grew up watching this in the 70's and the 80's. Save your money on this set and wait a few months....I cant see spending the $91.00 I paid for this set on Amazon. If this set is under $50.00 its an ok deal more than that save your money and wait for it to drop because I bet sales on this set aren't going to be that great. -

Let's Just Come Right Out And Ask The Question: Are Universal Studios Executives Going To Have To Be Taught In a Classroom How To Manufacture Classic Television Series On Blu-Ray Without Screwing It Up?



http://www.hometheaterforum.com/articles.html/_/dvd-blu-ray-reviews/battlestar-galactica-the-definitive-collection-blu-ray-review-r1071

It might be worth the investment for Universal Studios, wouldn't it? To send its top execs back to school (in order to begin being competitive in today's exploding Blu-Ray marketplace) to teach them how to release classic television series on Blu-Ray without screwing it up (blurry imaging, white specks, debris on the transfers, damaged transfers...etc.)

Module 114-76-J: How to make box art for Blu-Ray discs that isn't ugly and doesn't suck in appearance. Instructor: J. Simmons

After Reading Scores of Reviews of This Blu-Ray Release, The Best That Can Be Said About It Is That Its Technical Quality is "Wobbly"


http://www.amazon.com/Battlestar-Galactica-Definitive-Collection-Blu-ray/product-reviews/B00Q2OQNCM/ref=cm_cr_dp_see_all_btm?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending

Not necessarily bad and definitely not good either. Balanced on a precipice leaning towards flat out bad. Complaints run the gamut of blurry imaging in the widescreen versions of the episodes with white specks and other debris in the full frame versions. There has also been mention of the theme music being unusually slowed down in the "Galactica: 1980" episodes.

When, oh when will Universal Studios ever learn how to master the technology of the present day when it comes to releasing home media entertainment? They can't do it with Blu-Ray, they couldn't do it with DVD, and they couldn't do it with VHS.

It also hasn't helped matters any that Universal Studios hasn't been taking care of the original negatives of this series like they should have been doing during the past 37 years. And it shows in this Blu-Ray release, doesn't it?
