Hey man, just wanted to say I hope maybe we see some more posts from you on this topic on the future. I’ve read in awe of folks dedication, fondness, and adherence to cosplay/stormtrooping and you’ve absolutely given me even more reason to respect these/you guys. Read more

I’ll go see it most likely, but the movie isn’t what got me into Stargate, Stargate SG-1 did that.
