Stargate 1994 – This must be the beginning of a beautiful franchise

Stargate the movie The court room of Ra. He travels the Universe in giant pyramid shaped ships and, Walks like an Egyptian ;-)

Archaeologists discover a device of alien origin in Egypt. Dr. Daniel Jackson manages to decipher strange symbols on it and he discovers that it is in fact a Stargate, a device which can teleport them to the planet on the other side of the known Universe.

Once they arrive there  and befriend the natives, they find out that they live in constant fear of their god Ra. It turns out that Ra is a false god and a cruel alien being with advanced technology…

… and so Stargate became a great franchise…

I remember when I watched Stargate in the cinema for the first time. The story thrilled me with it’s twist on old religions of human history. Egyptian gods were in fact aliens that wanted to enslave or destroy human race. After that they turned in to a great TV show and then another, and another and a cartoon series. It was great, I watched SGU Stargate Universe (I still think theydidn’t have to cancel it) and started watching Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis all over recently. True, the shows had their oscillations in quality but they were / are fun to watch.

Also the shows expanded the SG universe extensively and added some more false deities from Egyptian, Babylonian, Norse and even Slavic mythologies since by the end of the movie Ra rides the A bomb ;-).

    I absolutely love this movie. I saw this in the theater with my wife when it came out. It was entertaining, visually amazing and filled with all sorts of action sequences I can’t even remember. The whole theme made for a wonderful story. Good choice!

      I totally forgot how great this movie is. So I accidentaly found VHS tape in the basement and couldn’t resist. The setting is great and I also enjoyed later TV shows.
