Prediction: God’s of Egypt
Shiri: I have to agree with Izzy on this one: metal Annubis is pretty boss. It’s going to be pretty. Also, Gerard Butler in a skirt is never a bad thing.
It’s also going to suck giant monkey balls.
I am totally hate watching this fucker.
Luke: (Yeah I was late on this, I suck.)
The idea has some legs, a really crazy over the top version of the Egyptian mythology could really work, it pushed Stargate over the top. It makes the Cain Chronicles by Rick Riordan a blast, no really go pick them up the whole series is a Harry Potter/Percy Jackson type series with an Egyptian theme, and it works because even the Egyptian gods cannot make any sense of the crazy that is Egyptian mythology. But, it really works.
Sadly, this looks bad, like really bad. Given the number of amazing actors in the world, why do we HAVE to whitewash movies with any foreign origin. Again and again the US movie going population shows how they are willing to go see freaking non-english language movies (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, etc.) if they are awesome, why is it so fucking hard to believe that you take any bunch of badass actors from lets say Japan, and have them speak english, and there are more than enough english speaking Japanese actors that you could find one. I mean casting Scarlett Johansson as freaking Kusanagi?!? Ok, wrong movie, that is the pre-emptive nerdrage about the Ghost in the Shell
debacle movie. But, same freaking problem.
Anyway this movie is going to suck fish balls. Don’t even know if I can bring myself to hate watch it.
