This movie looks soo weird, I can't wait to see it. I has one HELL of a cast, including 4 of my absolute favorite actors. Has anyone heard anything about it? I just heard about it on Comedy Central and it sounds bazaar and totally cool!! :D

I'm always glad to see a movie shot anamorphic.

Just started seeing promos for it last week, and was immediately intrigued. It kinda reminded me of something like "Kelly's Heroes", in spirit at least :)

I saw the Discovery Channel doc on The Stargate Project and I thought, wow what a great movie idea. Obviously some one else thought so too.

I'm doing my own "remote viewing", I'm looking into James Steven Beverly's home, and oh my gosh....what are you doing to that cat....ok changing the channel now. :lol:

I thought the ending was a let down.

The movie started out great, I was intrigued and I felt I was going to find out some great secret, or at least get an look at some very interesting characters, but it slowly unravelled and towards the end of the film they undid all the work they did setting stuff up.

Also, waaaaay to many knowing Star Wars references.

Sometimes, that is called, "Putting the cat back in the bag." They did it on The Matrix trilogy. It's when you propose a troubling or challenging idea to society, only to discount it later in the presentation/s. It's a propaganda technique.

...or maybe they just screwed up the ending.

I'm not yet at the top of the library's waiting list for this movie, but i did read the book.
There were 'Star war' references in the book. The goat starers liked to refer to themselves as Jedi warriors.

& the end of the book is dark, going into torture & MK Ultra.
