Mummy, The - Egypt Inaccuracies
What an unfortunate cooincidence-- me with my amateur egyptological training, plus my biggest pet peeve (historical innacuracies in movies) plus The Mummy... Uh oh.
I can point out a GREAT DEAL of innacuracies in the first scene:
For one, The pyramids were not in thebes.
The anubis statues were leaning forwards. Egyptian art follows strict guidlines. One of the biggest rules in statuary is Stand straight, stand tall... no leaning.
Also, Anubis is the god of the dead. Very morbid to put huge statues of the god of the dead in a town center. Like a giant Grim Reaper in the middle of a playground.
Egyptians didn't wear black. They couldn't -- thier fabric dyes weren't strong enough.
My greatest irritation--- For God's sake!!! The Egyptians didn't have gold! Lame!!!
just the movie
