The Pyramid Scheme
Many scifi movies, and fantasy movies for that matter, use the backdrop of Egyptian lore as the 'fodder' of their stories. From National Treasure, Battlestar Galactics, to Stargate, to Fifth Element; even movies like Raiders and others, love to use the mysterious aspects of the ancients as inspiration.
Why do you think this is? Is there some innate belief that we all have that something strange was going on back there, oh, 2000-3000-5000 years ago? I mean, heck, its either aliens or Gods. What the heck was going on back then to cause such stories to be passed on from generation to generation.
What is your favorite movie with such a theme behind the plot turns of a movie. And what do you think about the possibility we were 'visited' by strange aliens from other worlds?
Now; it is time to go back to watching STARGATE UNIVERSE!
