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!

I had to think about National Treasure and how Egypt was part of that movie. I assume you mean the treasure. Isn't that the same treasure Tom Hanks is looking for in his Devinci movie? I think Egypt is used by many writers because most of what we have about them is mysterious and makes for fun movies.

I love Nicholas Cage and hope he makes another Treasure movie. Whether or not it has Egypt involved I don't really care.

Thank you, I think. My wife likes Nicholas Cage too. And, unfortunately, most of his movies are free via Netflix streaming. She is the one guy she admitted she would leave me for. Gotta admire her honesty!

I hate Cage. He's one of those guys that I wonder how he became a movie star.

Rob...good title for this.

Rickey...Nicolas Cage is a great actor. The problem is, he does crappy movies.

He's done good movies. And he's good in them.

Best flick Cage did was Leaving Las Vegas.

Leaving Las Vegas was great. Although, I did have a few problems with it.

What was with Richard Lewis being the guy Cage wanted to borrow money from?

And, I think we'd have a lot more sympathy for the character if...once he "falls" for that woman, he tries to quit drinking. But at that point, he's an alcoholic and it's too late.

Just saw a good movie tonight (The Messenger). And before it started, a commercial for a Nic Cage film that looks good. (bad cop, or some generic dopey title like that). He's a good cop, that goes bad when drug addiction enters the picture (why do those commercials, and myself, give away more than is needed to get the point across?)

My favorite Cage movie was the very strange 8mm. Very disturbing movie about the snuff film industry.

That movie started out okay, but when downhill fast.

My favorite Cage movie was Fast Times at Ridgemont High (billed as Nicolas Coppola, his real name). A few of his scenes were cut out, and I think you only see him briefly in the kitchen.
