I was talking with someone about the differences between the original Stargate movie and Stargate Sg1. I mentioned the difference between the Goa'uld being snake-like in SG1 while in the movie Ra was shown in the backstory and cave painting as the images above. The movie also says his entire race was dying but in SG1 there are plenty of Goa'uld. Considering this was before they dicovered using humans as hosts I’ve come up with a theory:
These images are of a host they used between the Unus and humans and it was the hosts that were sick and dying not the Goa'uld. I posted this in one of the Facebook fan pages but I’m curious to hear tumblrs thoughts too…
I don’t always get to do super long rants over Tumblr, so let me do one really quickly. If you don’t like rants, I would implore you read this anyway, but if you must, scroll down very quickly.
I am really really pissed off about the Gods of Egypt cast. This entire movie has got to be a joke. I don’t plan to watch the movie for a few reasons.
The first and most important of all is that we have a bunch of British white dudes as the main characters. It’s a movie about Egyptian gods. So please tell me, why are their gods white?
Let me show you some wall carvings of ancient Egyptian gods:
Tell me, how many of these look vaguely white-skinned to you? That’s right, TWO. TWO OF THEM. And they’re actually more of a bronze-skin if you look in most of their drawings.
Now, with the knowledge of how they look up top, please let us observe some of these movie posters.
Oh, look down. ONE not-white person so far. Great. +1 for Hollywood diversity!
WHAT IN THE NAME OF ALL THAT IS HOLY HAPPENED.
WAS IT REALLY THAT HARD TO FIND ACTUAL EGYPTIAN ACTORS TO FIT YOUR MAIN ROLES?
WAS IT REALLY?
Now, I am not against all white people. I am white. Nor am I against white people in films.
But this… this does not even make sense. After that complete disaster that was Exodus: Gods and Kings, who let this guy make another historical movie? Who?
NOW ANOTHER THING that is pissing me off: not only are they not Egyptian, they do not look even vaguely like the gods they are supposed to be!
Think about it. They could actually make them look really cool if they stuck with the animals heads as they are originally portrayed. Even if it was just a mask or a helmet, that could be awesome! But they didn’t even try! They gave them capes. CAPES.
If they had just listened to my good friend Edna Mode, they could have been spared so many things. In fact, they look far better without them!
I am not against modernizing characters from ancient tales, but this is just ridiculous. Let me show you how awesome it could be if they kept it close to the originals but modernized slightly (ignore the cape):
NOW THAT LOOKS LIKE A GOD.
Oh, wait, there’s MORE beautiful art they could base it off of.
And for my personal favorite style:
But they didn’t do any of these. I can’t even imagine a good reason that they didn’t do it this way!
If you are going to make a movie about someone’s culture, do not completely disrespect the culture in doing so. And I think they have. So please, don’t watch this movie. Maybe I’m a bit more disgusted than I need to be, but I don’t think so.
okay but if we have another batman stand-alone pls don’t let the main antagonist be the joker. i am so sick of sitting through joker movies. he will already be in suicide squad anyway. poison ivy has only had one movie debut. riddler had only had one movie debut. penguin has had only one movie debut. ra’s al ghul has had only one movie debut (AS A WHITE GUY.) there are literally dozens of batman villains out there and most of them are great but pls for the love of god DO NOT DO ANOTHER JOKER MOVIE OR I WILL PUSH HIM IN THAT VAT OF ACID MYSELF
What she means:
why does every girl in Ranger's Apprentice have blonde hair? Alyss, Jenny, and Evanlyn/Cassandra ALL have blonde hair. Does John just like blonde hair because Evanlyn could easily have red hair. It matches her personality. Jenny would go well with brown hair, and Alyss is perfect with blonde hair but they ALL have blonde hair. Doesn't Lady Pauline have blonde hair? And will the fandom flip out if one of them doesn't have blonde hair in the movie even though most of us are confused by the fact that blonde hair is canon in the books?
Is anyone else kind of worried about the RA movie? Like I don’t want to get my expectations up too high but I just don’t want to see another bad YA book adaption. There’s so much potential to make the series explode into bigger things (what if we get action figures?!) I want it to be LotR trilogy quality, which is probably too much to hope for. I want the actors to be spot on for the characters. I want the character growth the books gave us. What are my fellow Rangers’ thoughts?
My latest evolution is of one of my favorite actors, Liam Neeson. I
first saw him waaaaay back when he appeared in Krull, but it wasn’t
until Darkman that I thought he leaped into the spotlight of great
leading men. His reputation as a brilliant actor was cemented with his
role in Schindler’s List, and he has delivered terrific performances
ever since. I’ve included some of my favorites in this illustration. What’s your favorite Liam Neeson movie?
