Aside from Stargate itself, I can’t think of a Devlin movie I like. Independence Day, I actively loathed. I am glad he’s gone. Additionally, in the current Hollywood political climate, I frankly wish the franchise would stay dead. I don’t want to see Stargate: The Last Jedi.

Let’s see…
1) original movie was good, but it wasn’t remotely as good as SG1
2) never understood why Independence day did well, it was ok but not great. Had some good lines but it was an average movie, at best. Sequel was… Meh
3) librarians was a fun show but got really dumb around season 3 and didn’t improve afterwards

Honestly this isn’t a loss. He’s never been awesome and, other than the original Stargate and, maybe, Independence Day, nothing he’s done was very good.

Wonderful news. I never liked the movie anyways except for the overall look & soundtrack. The TV series was far better. ID4 was great for it’s time but it really didn’t hold up well. It’s really just a bunch of one liners, piss poor CGI, and Smith drama later in his career. IDR, just another CGI Cluster F. Watch once and forget. SGU & SGO, meh. As long as MGM has the reigns leave Stargate in the sarcophagus.

Good riddance. I’m curious what his version of Stargate(after the first movie) would have been but if they’re going to make stargate, it should respect TV show canon.

Glad to hear it.

Stargate is the various series that all have all surpassed the original film, which, quite frankly, you can turn off as soon as Spader opens the gate and miss nothing.

I hope so much that they will do “Independence Day 3”, and if so I would like there to be: -the majority of music from the first Independence Day “Alien Ship Power Up” from 0:26 to 1:05, “International Code” from 0:18 to 1:04, “He Did It” from 0:00 to 0:33 and from 0:43 to 0:54, “End Titles” from 6:31 to 7:32; -the majority of the actors of the first “Independence Day” reprising their same characters in addition to Jeff Goldblum: David Levinson, Brent Spiner: Brackish Okun, Judd Hirsch: Julius Levinson, Adam Baldwin: Major Mitchell, the children of Russell Casse: Miguel… Read more »
