Can We Look Forward to Even More Failed Projects in 2013 From NBC-Universal and Bryan Singer, Getting Burned Off as a DVD Release or One-Shot Television Broadcast?



My New Years Predictions (2013) For Universal Studios, SyFy Channel, and Bryan Singer










1. Universal Studios will continue to not have a money making Science Fiction franchise in 2013 on the order of "Star Wars" and "Star Trek" because they will continue to not be intelligent enough to manage "Battlestar Galactica" in the manner in should be managed...by continuing or revisiting the saga of "The 1978 Battlestar Galactica" series.

2. SyFy Channel will continue to be the one channel the Science Fiction fan community does not watch anymore because the channel is not Science Fiction and the channel sucks overall.

3. Bryan Singer will continue racking up one fake press release after another adding to his already astonishing list of 23 consecutive aborted project / fake press release list...

1. Six Billion Dollar Man
2. Battlestar Galactica

3. The Munsters (TV series)

6. Bob Fosse mini series (HBO)
7. 2012
8. Sellevision
9. X-Men: Last Stand
10. Jack The Giant Killer
11. Star Trek
12. The Prisoner
13. Wolverine 2
14. X-Men 3
15. Aim High
16. X-Men: First Class
17. X-Men: Days of Future Past (Abandonment Pending)
18. Freedom Formula: Ghost of The Wasteland
19. The Mayor of Castro Street: The Life & Times of Harvey Milk
20. Capeshooters
21. The Twilight Zone (Abandonment Pending)
22. Confessions of a Dangerous Mind
23. Footballers Wives


Perhaps most importantly!!




The status of Science Fiction and "Battlestar Galactica" in 2013 will remain boring, status quo ("Blood & Chrome"), and brain dead with the "Universal Studios Black Tower" (pictured above) continuing to pilot the ship!!

Just the way Universal Studios likes it!! Not making serious money with Science Fiction and "Battlestar Galactica!!"

Bryan Singer's "Mockingbird Lane" Has Earned The Badge of Honor "One of The Biggest Television Misfires of 2012"

 
 
 
 
 

Let's also give NBC-Universal a round of applause for making the "Gosh Darn" thing!!

Well...How did the "Magnum Gold Ice Cream" commercials go over?

The Blunt Truth of Ronald D. Moore And Bryan Singer





Ronald D. Moore and Bryan Singer have proven to be insignificant lightweights in the arena of Science Fiction / Fantasy producing, writing and directing. Their previous work in this area of required expertise has proven to be no more memorable than an average episode of "L.A. Law" or "Jackass." Their collective attempts in trying to build careers for themselves in trying to tackle Science Fiction and Fantasy has resulted in both of them destroying their own careers in movies and television. Ironic since both of them were always trying to use Science Fiction and Fantasy to build careers for themselves.

Ronald D. Moore -

His post "Star Trek - Rick Berman Era" work has yielded nothing but one failure after another. His failed attempt at trying to reboot "Battlestar Galactica" for a chronically low rated cable channel that isn't Science Fiction in the first place (SyFy Channel) resulted in three ill-conceived series that only had salaried stealth marketers on Internet bulletin boards rooting for them ("GINO", "Caprica", "Blood & Chrome")

Every other Science Fiction based production he has tried to get up and running either got shit-canned ("Virtuosity", "Wild, Wild West") or never got passed the pilot stage ("17th Precinct".)

Bryan Singer -

Where does one begin with Bryan Singer? There certainly is never an ending with this guy. After racking up an astounding 23 consecutive projects that either got aborted (even if they were legitimate in the first place), or were fake to begin with via endless fake press releases....

Bryan Singer's Aborted Project / Fake Press Release List - Volume 1

http://www.grantland.com/blog/hollywood-prospectus/post/_/id/35894/does-excalibur-wolverine-2-x-men-first-class-director-bryan-singer-really-want-to-make-movies

1. Six Billion Dollar Man
2. Battlestar Galactica

3. The Munsters (TV series)
4. Logan's Run
5. Excalibur
6. Bob Fosse mini series (HBO)
7. 2012
8. Sellevision
9. X-Men: Last Stand
10. Jack The Giant Killer
11. Star Trek
12. The Prisoner
13. Wolverine 2
14. X-Men 3
15. Aim High
16. X-Men: First Class
17. X-Men: Days of Future Past (Abandonment Pending)
18. Freedom Formula: Ghost of The Wasteland
19. The Mayor of Castro Street: The Life & Times of Harvey Milk
20. Capeshooters
21. The Twilight Zone (Abandonment Pending)
22. Confessions of a Dangerous Mind
23. Footballers Wives

...Bryan Singer has proven himself to be...

"The King of The Fake Press Release"

There are other things going on here evident sinply by reading between the lines of all of these projects (Bryan Singer announced) that never came to fruition due to them being aborted or were fake to begin with.

1. After the failure of "Superman Returns", Bryan Singer has as much clout in Hollywood right now as does your average "Below The Line Key Grip" in Hollywood.

2. No one in Hollywood is giving Bryan Singer any money for any reason for any project of any formidable legitimacy. His only two projects after "Valkyrie" in 2007 were "The Munsters Halloween Special" and "Magnum Gold Ice Cream" commercials.

After Bryan Singer quietly walks away from both "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and the "Twilight Zone" remake with CBS-TV due to both projects either collapsing or never having been legitimate claims by Bryan Singer in the first place, I suspect he will pop up in television directing sitcom episodes such as "Two and a Half Men", more ice cream commercials, or a follow-up to his "Munsters Halloween Special."

We can also count on Bryan Singer making his next "Battlestar Galactica" fake press release / movie announcement in the fall of 2013.

Bryan Singer & Universal Studios Have Had a Rough And Exhausting 14 Months, Haven't They?


 
Mr. Reliability himself....Bryan Singer


 
The press releases from this studio you can always count on to be false
 
                                     
 
The exhausting 14 months for Bryan Singer and Universal Studios began on October 21st, 2011 when they both released this fake press release.
 
                                      
 
After doing nothing career wise for the next 10 months (including not making the above movie), Bryan Singer carried the "Olympic Torch" up Mount Olympus one last time by offering the above (fake) update on this fake "Battlestar" movie on August 3rd, 2012.
 
Whew!! Exhausting, huh?
 
I hope Bryan Singer and Universal Studios never broke a "Corporate Fingernail" during this 14 month long, exhausting ordeal of theirs.

Universal Studios Has Charged Full Steam Ahead Into Blu-Ray Technology With Manufacturing Flaws



Universal Studios has embraced DVD & Blu-Ray technology with all of the affection of a cactus hugging a raccoon.

Before Universal Studios charged full speed ahead into their defective Blu-Ray releases...

http://www.hometheaterforum.com/t/315636/universal-blu-ray-catalog-releases-quality-control-issues



http://www.hometheaterforum.com/t/310985/battlestar-galactica-the-complete-epic-series

...They were having a field day inflicting all sorts of intentional manufacturing damage on traditional DVD releases such as this one from 2003. "Battlestar Galactica - The Complete Epic Series", aside from boasting less than stellar box art (putting it mildly and the least of its problems)....had the following  manufacturing flaws...

1. Cracked discs sitting in the trays when you first opened this set after just buying it.

2. Disc freeze on random discs depending upon which set you bought. The set I bought had the disc freeze occurrring on Side 1, Disc 1. Where "Saga of a Star World" was placed. (Universal Studios never did like this pilot episode of "The 1978 Battlestar Galactica" series.)

3. Heavy grain on the episodes of this series. Primarily on...(you guessed it)...."Saga of a Star World."

I guess this is one of those instances (much like their ongoing and fake "Battlestar Galactica" press releases) that Universal Studios hopes that the mere passage of time and loss of memory by the general public will pardon them of their intentional wrongdoing.

Yowza!! Found Two More Projects That Bryan Singer Aborted!!




http://movies.amctv.com/movie/2002/Confessions+of+a+Dangerous+Mind

"Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" - with Johnny Depp

http://www.zap2it.com/tv/zap-abcfootballerswivespilot,0,3642767.story

"Footballers Wives"

I'll just go ahead and add those two to the good old, trusty list here!!

http://www.grantland.com/blog/hollywood-prospectus/post/_/id/35894/does-excalibur-wolverine-2-x-men-first-class-director-bryan-singer-really-want-to-make-movies

Bryan Singer's Aborted Project / Fake Press Release List - Volume 1

1. Six Billion Dollar Man
2. Battlestar Galactica
3. The Munsters (TV series)
4. Logan's Run
5. Excalibur
6. Bob Fosse mini series (HBO)
7. 2012
8. Sellevision

20. Capeshooters
21. The Twilight Zone (Abandonment Pending)
22. Confessions of a Dangerous Mind
23. Footballers Wives

I could be wrong (though I doubt it)... But there seems to be a pattern of "Non-Work" developing here!!





Universal Studios is Doing Really Well With "Battlestar Galactica" Aren't They? Releasing Nothing But Fake "Galactica" Products And Fake "Galactica" Press Releases



No wonder Universal Studios never makes the sort of money they really should be making with "Battlestar Galactica."




One of the products Universal Studios claims is "Battlestar Galactica" but really isn't.



Does Universal Studios have a "Corporate Timetable" they're adhering to as to when they hope the general public will forget all about this "Fake Press Release" they made on October 21st, 2011? Are they playing the "Waiting Game" here? Is that what they're doing? Does Universal Studios hope that the general public will have amnesia after what, 5 years?


Ditto here for this other "Fake Press Release" Universal Studios made on August 3rd, 2012.

Since Bryan Singer Really Isn't Working Anymore (We Can Deduce That By Reading Between The Lines of All of His Fake Press Releases)....




...Maybe I can help Bryan Singer try and find a job by suggesting some career paths for him....



Computers!! A good, durable career to get into. Everything in our society is run by computers now!! What do you think, Singer old boy? ITT Technical Institute is calling you!!


Don't laugh!! If you have $800,000.00...you can open up your very own McDonalds affiliate restaurant!! Be careful though, Singer old boy...If you don't set up your restaurant and make all menu items precisely to McDonalds specifications...their corporate office will come out to your restaurant and strip all McDonalds brand name recognition from your restaurant. You'll still have your restaurant, but you just won't be able to sell McDonalds items there.

And Bryan Singer Claims to Be Remaking "The Twilight Zone"




http://www.deadline.com/2012/12/bryan-singer-to-spearhead-twilight-zone-series-reboot-for-cbs-tv-studios/

I get it. Bryan Singer can now direct "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and helm "The Twilight Zone" at the same time. In his imaginary "Press Release Universe" perhaps.

Anywho...Time to add another pending aborted project to Bryan Singer's ever growing list....

Bryan Singer's Abandoned Movie & Television Productions Thus Far...
 
Perhaps I should just rename this list as...
 
"The Fake Press Releases of Bryan Singer Volume 1"

http://www.grantland.com/blog/hollywood-prospectus/post/_/id/35894/does-excalibur-wolverine-2-x-men-first-class-director-bryan-singer-really-want-to-make-movies

1. Six Billion Dollar Man
2. Battlestar Galactica
3. The Munsters (TV series)
4. Logan's Run
5. Excalibur
6. Bob Fosse mini series (HBO)
7. 2012
8. Sellevision
9. X-Men: Last Stand
10. Jack The Giant Killer
11. Star Trek
12. The Prisoner
13. Wolverine 2
14. X-Men 3
15. Aim High
16. X-Men: First Class

18. Freedom Formula: Ghost of The Wasteland
19. The Mayor of Castro Street: The Life & Times of Harvey Milk
20. Capeshooters
21. The Twilight Zone (Abandonment Pending)

I guess Bryan Singer got tired of "Tweeting" about his "Fake Gig" as the director of "X-Men: Days of Future Past."

A suggestion for Bryan Singer when he makes his next "Fake Press Release" next month...


How about if he claims to be remaking the Saturday morning kid's show "Bigfoot & Wildboy" from 1976?

The Signs Can't Be Any Clearer That Universal Studios Has An Ongoing Prejudice Against Science Fiction and Specifically, "Battlestar Galactica"



Universal Studios: The home of a massive "Corporate Dysfunctionality" towards the entire Science Fiction genre and specifically..."The 1978 Battlestar Galactica" series.



Universal Studios October 21st, 2011 "Fake" Press Release of a non-existent "Battlestar Galactica" movie. Universal Studios makes these repeated, Bi-ennial "Fake" press releases of theirs in the hopes that the "Galactica" fanbase will eventually give up on the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series through the repeated disappointment of this movie never being made, taking their fan worship elsewhere. It keeps backfiring in Universal Studios face of course, and the fanbase for the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series remains as strong and as vibrant as it has ever been. The moral of the story is: Universal Studios needs to stop trying to practice "Reverse Psychology" on the general public.


Bryan Singer's "Fake" August 3rd, 2012 follow-up to the above "Fake" Press Release of Universal Studios. Bryan Singer always blindly tags along for the ride with Universal Studios in trying to keep the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" dead because in all seriousness, what else does Bryan Singer have going on in his life (professionally) right now? Another "X-Men" movie? Yeah, right. More like loads and loads of free time.

The symptoms and signs have been unmistakable since day one. Universal Studios has a "Corporate Problem" with all things Science Fiction and all things "Battlestar Galactica."

1. NBC-Universal utterly decimated the once great Sci-Fi Channel with bad management and a crappy name change ("SyFy".)

2. Universal Studios has not one...not one...ongoing, successful, and beloved Science Fiction "Tent-Pole Property" on the order of "Star Wars" and "Star Trek."

3. "Battlestar Galactica", as it was originally presented in the 1978 series has the full potential to be a mass market accepted, "Tent-Pole Science Fiction Property." The third legitimate and formidable  alternative to "Star Wars" and "Star Trek." But since Universal Studios is a thoroughly broken and dysfunctional corporation when it comes to the entire Science Fiction genre and "Battlestar Galactica", this will never happen. Unless the "Battlestar Galactica" property is sold to another corporation with a brain within its corporate skull. The problem has never been the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series. The problem has always been Universal Studios.

4. Everything else Universal Studios owns Science Fiction related, they keep dead within their clueless and thoughtless ownership. Foe example...

a. Buck Rogers in the 25th Century
b. Flash Gordon
c. Back to The Future
d. Jurassic Park

5. Yes, Universal Studios has tried (less than half-heartedly) to bring some of their Science Fiction properties back to life. The results typically however, have always been disastrous:

a. Battlestar Galactica -

In three consecutive instances, Universal Studios failed miserably to bring "Battlestar Galactica" back to life. "GINO" - ("Galactica in Name Only"), "Caprica", "Blood & Chrome." The reasons for these three consecutive failures are wide and varied. Universal Studios notorious hatred of "Galactica" in its original and only proper form: "The 1978 Battlestar Galactica" series. (You can't go in two opposite directions at the same time. Hate something and then attempt to remake it.) The staggering lack of imagination and staggering lack of inspired thinking within "Universal Studios Black Tower." Universal Studios repeated unwillingness to hire quality people and talented people to helm "Battlestar Galactica" - (Bryan Singer, Ronald D. Moore, and Daiv Eick ain't it.) Finally, Universal Studios all around "Brain Farting" when it comes to all things Science Fiction and "Battlestar Galactica."

b. Flash Gordon -

Remember this piece of crap on Bonnie Hammer's SyFy Cannel? Universal reduced "Flash Gordon" to a low budget, dimension hopping nerd. It was cheaper production wise for Universal than having "Flash Gordon" going planet-hopping.

The blame for all of these endless misfires with Science Fiction and "Battlestar Galactica" must be placed where the blame deserves to be placed. With the corporate people at Universal Studios making all of these, endless crappy decisions with Science Fiction in general and "Battlestar Galactica." In addition to not having the "Cerebral Intellect" to deal with Science Fiction in general and "Battlestar Galactica", these corporate people working at the "Universal Studios Black Tower" have a "Snooty Attitude" towards Science Fiction in general and "Battlestar Galactica." Psychologically speaking, it's common for "Corporate People" to have "Snooty Attitudes" towards things they do not have the "Cerebral Intellect" to deal with and address. To sum up: The people working at the "Universal Studios Black Tower" are not smart people when it comes to Science Fiction in general and "Battlestar Galactica." They are stupid.

I'm sure Universal Studios would prefer it if its "disastrous corporate history" with all things Science Fiction and "Battlestar Galactica" be forgotten and buried with all of the other bad memories on the Internet. But that's not going to happen. Not when the solution to all of these problems will always be...Replacing all of the people currently working in the "Universal Studios Black Tower" with people who know what the heck they are doing, and people who have a clear head when dealing with all things Science Fiction and "Battlestar Galactica." People are replaced in the business world (for poor performance) all of the time. Why stop now?

It's a sad state of affairs in our society that all too frequently, the wrong people end up in specific positions of employment. Positions of employment that they are not suited for...

1. Everyone working in the "Universal Studios Black Tower."
2. Bonnie Hammer - Head of anything at NBC-Universal??
3. David Howe - television executive??
4. Mark Stern - television executive??
5. Ronald D. Moore - a television producer??
6. David Eick - a television producer??
7. Bryan Singer - a movie director??

The entire NBC-Universal corporation can very easily be a textbook example of what goes wrong when the wrong people are hired for endless positions across the board.

When was the last time Universal Studios showed up at "Comic-Con" for any reason whatsoever?

When The SyFy Channel Recently Celebrated its 20 Year Anniversary, Why Was Nobody Celebrating?




http://sciencefiction.com/2012/12/05/syfy-channel-celebrates-20-years-of-entertainment-with-anniversary-special/

Maybe because the general public knows the infamous truth about the SyFy Channel:

1. That a good half of those 20 years of the SyFy Channel were managed by different (better) people and a different (better) corporation (not NBC-Universal, not Bonnie Hammer, not David Howe, not Mark Stern), when the channel was 1000% better than it is now, actually aired Science Fiction content, and was actually called..."The Sci-Fi Channel."

2. That this channel completely went to shit when NBC-Universal bought it, and Bonnie Hammer / David Howe / and Mark Stern were brought in to manage it.

3. That quite frankly, nobody watches this channel anymore.

If any birthday cake and balloons were passed around during the 20th Anniversary of this channel, it was quietly done so among the "hardly successful executives" working in the "Universal Studios Black Tower."



Given Bryan Singer's Track Record of Abandoning 19 Previous Movie & Television Productions...




..."X-Men: Days of Future Past" will proceed quite nicely into production and get made without Bryan Singer in the director's chair.

Because when Bryan Singer has a work history like this...

Bryan Singer's Abandoned Movie & Television Productions Thus Far...


1. Six Billion Dollar Man
2. Battlestar Galactica
3. The Munsters (TV series)
4. Logan's Run
5. Excalibur
6. Bob Fosse mini series (HBO)
7. 2012
8. Sellevision
9. X-Men: Last Stand
10. Jack The Giant Killer
11. Star Trek
12. The Prisoner
13. Wolverine 2
14. X-Men 3
15. Aim High
16. X-Men: First Class
17. X-Men: Days of Future Past (Abandonment Pending)
18. Freedom Formula: Ghost of The Wasteland
19. The Mayor of Castro Street: The Life & Times of Harvey Milk
20. Capeshooters

...The closest Bryan Singer will ever get to "X-Men: Days of Future Past" is watching cartoons like this....

 

Movie directors are a dime a dozen in Hollywood. Especially so for Bryan Singer.

There are also many directors in Hollywood infinitely more talented than Bryan Singer who could easily direct "X-Men: Days of Future Past", such as Steven Spielberg, James Cameron, Peter Jackson, Joss Whedon, and Shawn Levy.

So, I'm still extremely suspicious over the claim that 20th Century Fox chose Bryan Singer to direct "X-Men: Days of Future Past" after the failure of "Superman Returns." It only takes one "dud" in Hollywood, and a movie director will never be hired to direct a multi-million dollar tent pole project ever again. In Bryan Singer's case, even if "X-Men 1" and "X-Men 2" did well. Singer also has the tarnished reputation of abandoning the 19 consecutive movie and tv productions listed above. So, 20th Century Fox would just nonchalantly hire Bryan Singer to direct "Days of Future Past" despite these two glaring facts? Surely, 20th Century Fox (like other studios) keeps tabs on, and does research on, a movie director's work history before they hire them for anything. Especially for a movie that could easily have a budget in the $200 million range.

If by some "fluke" Bryan Singer has indeed been hired to direct "X-Men: Days of Future Past" after the failure of "Superman Returns", his overall work history, and 6 years after his last theatrical film ("Valkyrie")...

...It would be the first case of charity and sympathy triumphing over money ever...in Hollywood.

Bryan Singer would have gotten the "Days of Future Past" gig because 20th Century Fox felt sorry for him and wanted to give him one last chance in the movie director's chair?

The Perils of Fake Press Releases and How to Avoid Them


Universal Studios October 21st, 2011 "Fake" Press Release


Bryan Singer's "Fake" August 3rd, 2012 Follow-Up


http://gawker.com/5963388/the-perils-of-fake-press-releases-and-how-to-avoid-them


quote - "It's not hard for anyone to write up and place a press release on the wires." - unquote

Even Universal Studios and Bryan Singer can do it...repeatedly!! As in the two cases above.




 
 
 One of my many "Public Service Safety Messages" for the general public instructing and warning them to avoid Universal Studios and Bryan Singer (and any fake press releases they put forth) at all costs.
 
It wouldn't hurt either to BOYCOTT any future productions Universal Studios and Bryan Singer may create either individually or collectively.
 
My personal definition of  "Consumer Activism" as it applies to "The 1978 Battlestar Galactica" series....
 
Making the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series readily available to the general public at any time in any form the general public so chooses or requests...whether it be a new theatrical production, a new television production, or high quality DVD releases regardless of how Universal Studios and Bryan Singer personally feel about the matter.
 
Universal Studios and Bryan Singer are not in the business of putting forth their "personal opinions" of a property, and then using their "personal opinions" to "withhold indefinitely"...a property, copyright, or consumer product from public consumption...as Universal Studios and Bryan Singer have been doing since 2001 with the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series.
 
Their "personal opinions" are irrelevant in this matter. Their jobs are only suppose to involve, supplying product to the general public for mass consumption...period.
 
The "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series is a consumer product for the masses...period. And because it is a consumer product for the masses, it deserves the same unbiased considerations and treatment as any other consumer product does, whether it be a box of "Fruit Loops" or a 34 year old television series.
 
The manufacturer of "Cocoa Pebbles Breakfast Cereal" may hate the product within its corporate offices, but they still produce the product in mass quantities regardless.
 
The "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series is not a political weapon of the "Universal Studios Black Tower", as Universal Studios has been utilizing it as...against the general public since 1978.

Universal Studios (And its Notorious Entourage) Are Always At Ground Zero in Not Grasping Pop Culture Sensibilities







Universal Studios (and the two notorious members of its routine entourage pictured above) lack basic pop culture sensibilities when it comes to trying to find a way to compete with the likes of "Star Wars" and "Star Trek."

Bringing "Battlestar Galactica" into the 21st Century should have and could have been a no-brainer for the three morons pictured above.

A long dormant, sleeping giant of a property, the ("1978 Battlestar Galactica" series) with enormous potential and given an unfair shake during its original broadcast by ABC-TV via its enormous potential to compete with "Star Wars" and "Star Trek", is brought into the 21st Century with its enormous potential finally realized...only to have that potential (and the opportunity) squandered by a studio infested by corporate drones with zero imagination, a former "Star Trek" staff writer who ultimately turned out to be a big fizzle creatively when not under Rick Berman's nurturing wing, and a former theatrical director who killed the "Superman" character in a terrible movie who is having a hard time right now just trying to pick up the jigsaw puzzle pieces of his career after that fact.

"Battlestar Galactica" has not and is not competing with the "Star Wars" and "Star Trek" franchises right now not because it doesn't have the enormous potential to do so on the same epic scale, but because the property keeps ending up in the wrong hands (Ronald D. Moore, Bryan Singer) who either turn the property into a steaming pile of dog shit ("GINO", "Caprica", "Blood & Chrome"), or do absolutely nothing with the property at all one way or the other since 2001.

Universal Studios (never having any great love for the "Galactica" property in the first place) is always contented to turn the property over to Hollywood's dumbest, in order to turn what could be a mass market, pop culture phenomenon...into an unwatchable, depressing mess of dysfunctionality for the "Avante Garde, Lunatic Fringe" that Universal Studios always loves to pander to with the "Battlestar Galactica" property, rather than making money in a logical and progressive, mass market sort of way with "Battlestar Galactica." The end product of course, always being "Battlestar Galactica" in name only.

This "Avante Garde Lunatic Fringe" that Universal Studios loves so much, never measuring as so much as a "blip" on anyone's demographic radar in any area of Hollywood marketing known to mankind.

Between the combined, zero imagination and uninspired thinking of Universal Studios, Ronald D. Moore, and Bryan Singer..."Battlestar Galactica" remains the sleeping giant it always has been, fully capable of competing with "Star Wars" and "Star Trek" if it is ever owned and utlized by the right people in the future.

Universal Studios never has anything to compete with "Star Wars" and "Star Trek" because they're always too busy "snickering" at "Battlestar Galactica" or anything Science Fiction related. The results are clear for all to see. Universal Studios does not have a "Tent Pole Science Fiction Franchise" of any sort to compete in the mass market, pop culture arena.

This "snickering" by Universal Studios in my estimation, is really a camouflage activity on their part to hide the fact that their studio in particular in Hollywood, is run by people with zero imagination, zero inspired thinking, and an overall deficiency and inability in their corporate psyche to have its finger on the pulse of pop culture sensibilities.

Marginal And Underwhelming Management at Universal Studios Reduced "Battlestar Galactica" to These Nonsensical and Repulsive Productions



 

These three productions are now exactly where they belong. Rotting away in the discount DVD bins at Wal-Mart, and languishing as slashed price fodder on http://www.amazon.com

Universal Studios less than half-hearted corporate attempt to bring "Battlestar Galactica" into the 21st Century with these three low rated, low budgeted, and low imagination based productions failed to awake the sleeping giant that is still the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series.

Thanks to the above "yawning" induced productions, "Battlestar Galactica" (the brand name) fails to compete with "Star Wars" and "Star Trek" in magnitude of pop culture popularity.

Small minds produce small profits.

The Past Always Has a Way of Coming Back to Haunt Universal Studios and Bryan Singer, Doesn't It?


October 21st, 2011 Press Release


August 3rd, 2012 Press Release


Especially when their past is preserved forever on videotape.

I think Universal Studios and Bryan Singer's bad habit of repeatedly re-announcing this movie in fake press releases such as the two fake preleases above has something to do with the laid-back Southern California lifestyle and mentality within the business world over there:

1. No following through with what you claim or announce.

2. Your word is as fleeting as the warm Los Angeles breezes.

3. If you want to abide by any code of business ethics, move to the Midwest.

4. What appears to be legitimate press releases are really just fleeting remarks.

Of course, the two above (fake) press releases have everything to do with Universal Studios and Bryan Singer wanting to play a never ending con game with the fanbase of the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series.

The "David Letterman Top 10 List" of Why Bryan Singer Always Abandons The Movies He Announces via Fake Press Releases




 
 
 
10. He was never really assigned by the Hollywood studios to direct those movies in the first place.
 
9. His extremely congested television schedule of directing the "Munsters Halloween Special 2012" and directing "Magnum Gold Ice Cream Commercials" is preventing him from having any free time to direct any multi-million dollar, tent-pole movies.
 
8. "Superman Returns" really did kill Bryan Singer's theatrical movie, directing career.
 
7. Bryan Singer prefers the intimate medium of television where directing the likes of sitcom episodes, low budget horror movies for the SyFy Channel, and game show episodes allows you to do so under a pseudonym.
 
6. Bryan Singer enjoys giving sick notes from his parents to his agent.
 
5. Repeatedly abandoning the movies that you announce via fake Internet press releases gives the impression that you are an aloof genius too good for Hollywood. It also gives the reverse impression of you having zero clout in Hollywood ultimately but that's beside the point!!
 
4. Having a make believe career on the Internet allows Bryan Singer to have a "special relationship" with the general public. Sort of like having a bad credit rating allows you to have a "special relationship" with financial lenders.
 
3. Bryan Singer defends his position of making 100% more announcements over the Internet than his peers do (James Cameron, Peter Jackson, Shaun Levy, Joss Whedon) yet his peers ironically produce 100% more movies than he does in that he is simply "more gabby and more introspective of the projects he selects" than his peers are.
 
2. Bryan Singer is trying to enter himself in the "Guinness Book of World Records" under a new category:
 
"Most movies ever abandoned by a film director consecutively."
 
1. After the failure of "Superman Returns", there is no direction go but "down."
