    Gods of Egypt

    ★★★

    Look, this movie isn't great. The dialogue is mostly terrible and the acting is pretty much universally over the top, and it's a mild to moderate case of white washing, but there's so much going on visually I find it hard to ignore.

    Also, to reiterate: Geoffrey Rush plays Ra, who lives on a boat in the sky that drags the sun, and every night he fights a giant space worm that orbits the flat world.

    I feel like if this had been a video game it would have been a classic.

    ★★★

    This movie is kinda garbage, but it’s kinda my kinda garbage.  There’s one or two decent set pieces that are almost but not quite great and a couple of great gags, but mostly I just liked how aware it is of how ridiculous the entire premise of BAYWATCH can be (even if it doesn’t 100% land).

    It gets better every time I watch it.

    George Miller was robbed at the Oscars. So was Junkie XL for that matter.

    Every time I watch this film I wonder how hard it must have been to choose between Tom Hulce and F. Murray Abraham for best actor.

    Then I wonder how Jeffery Jones didn't win every award he could for his performance a the emperor.
