RE: Exodus
So... since the exodus never happened, is this going to be a 2-hour blank screen? Consider

@DonaldTrump, Patriotism is not honoring your flag no matter what your country/leader does. It's doing whatever it takes to make your country the best it can be as long as its not violent.

Yup, just another day like being in church.

I hate with movies like this knowing they could be absolutely horrible and it won't matter because people will still flock to it.

Well, to be fair, most stories movies are based on never actually happened.

Popcorn I put more thought into fiction than theists put into reality.

RE: Exodus
I have to wonder which Ramses this is supposed to be... are they seriously trying to make it be Ramses III? Someone in charge must be aware that there are actual written accounts of his life & activities WRITTEN AT THAT ACTUAL TIME, which have been studied... right? At no time in the great Ramses' life was there ever any mention of any kind of plague. And uh, if someone ever posed a threat to the throne, said person(s) would find out what the bottom of the Nile looked like, in the blink of an eye.


This is no where near a dramatization of Hitler's "last days in the bunker", this is pure fantasy pawned off as what some people seem to think may have happened! Entertainment aside, I think it feeds a lot of peoples' confusion.

I'll probably see it, eventually... for the costumes & sceneries. Drinking Beverage

Oh, are they going that route? That's what I get for not being willing to waste three minutes on the trailer, I guess.

Actually, you're right. Even though it's supposed to be a true story, they could insert fiction so it won't be a blank screen. But they wouldn't be dishonest like that would th... sorry, never mind. Tongue

Re: Exodus
I just want to stand in line for tickets. When someone says, "We know it ends with the plagues and Passover," I'll yell about them spoiling the ending and walk out all pissed off.

(This happened to someone I knew when he mentioned how the Titanic sank. A couple kids in line got pissed off.)

Well whatever, I think it's good that they are mythologizing these bible stories. Sooner or later they will become like those of the Adventures of Sindbad or Clash of the Titans 1981 and Hercules. Stories for pure entertainment and not to be taken seriously. There are much better stories out there, yes, I'd love to see a Gilgamesh movie and please please somebody make a decent Beowulf movie for once.
