I feel personally offended by this movie. Thanks to the convenient help of questionable historical sources my distant ancestors may or may have not been Egyptian. Therefore, this movie is appropriating my culture :(

On a serious note, I have no idea how Hollywood managed to take a distinctly Egyptian setting and still have a near all-white cast. Like, imagine if I made a movie on Ancient Greece and all the Greek characters were black, I mean, wouldn't you question that decision for even a moment?

I do not know if you have noticed this or what, but I have recently seen that Middle-Eastern/North African people are being labelled as "white" on surveys/tests. That's kinda the same thing as this.

It seemed so historically accurate too. All that gritty realism completely ruined by one little missed detail...
"See now Oblivion shimmering all around us, its very tranquility deadlier than tempest. How little all our keels have troubled it."
- Lord Dunsany -

"The darkness drops again but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born? "
- W. B. Yeats -

Like 300, just minus the realism and an overload on the gritty (The entire movie was like one big instagram filter.
