Interests
So, I went to see Gods of Egypt today. My original plan was to see Zootopia, but I got there too late and there were no screenings in the evening since it's technically a kids' movie (I guess that's how they do things in European cinemas, just roll with it). But then I saw the poster and thought that seeing this movie might give me some more inspiration for Mythos, so I went to see it instead.

Oh, I got inspiration alright. Inspiration on how NOT to do a mythology-based story.

Let me make this clear first: the movie clearly intended to faithfully adapt Egyptian myths to the big screen. Ra fighting the giant serpent Apep/Apophis to stop him from eating the sun and the Egyptian Underworld showing the dead's walk to the Trial of the Dead that determines their worth to access the Afterlife were the most visually impressive moments. My Egyptian mythology nerd self had a real treat during these moments, let me tell you.

Where the movie fails hard, though - REAL hard - is its plot. Its uninteresting and unlikable characters. The abysmal acting. All of it sucked so much that in the last twenty minutes, I was beginning to feel like I did watching Jupiter Ascending. *shudders* I also promptly ripped my ticket in eight even bits before throwing them in the bin outside, just to give you an idea of how much I disliked it.

So I don't recommend this movie. If you wanted to go see it before reading this, I'm not gonna stop you. Just leave your brains at home before you do.
