zenosanalytic replied to your post: what is it with hollywood movies “based” on egypt…

Also, re the new Mummy, the old Universal monster movies were horror films. From the trailers, that looks like an utterly generic action movie(just like the recent Dr. Frankenstein) filled with terroristic mass-destruction imagery. If Universal wants to build an actual worthwhile franchise with those properties, going back to horror and understanding what makes them compelling might help.

thing is, i don’t see any value in that either. i can hardly believe there is anything to like about it tbh

Can we talk about American Gods? We really have a dark-skin black woman playing a Biblical Queen and a Love Goddess. We have Black People portraying Egyptian Gods. The lead of the show is black. They have West African Gods being portrayed on mainstream media. Seeing black people’s mythology and history represented on screen by black actors is a big thing. People aren’t even aware of nor regard the several figures in Abrahamic religions being African. .
