Gods of Egypt came out to little fanfare aside from the whitewashing controversy surrounding it. Putting Gerard Butler and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in there didn’t exactly go over well with critics. But we aren’t the critics and controversy bounces off us, so we really liked it!
Wil has always said that he wants MORE™ from his fantasy movies and Gods of Egypt finally delivered. It’s big and bold and extravagant in a way that movies rarely commit to. Was the movie without problems? Of course not. It’s not even close to perfect. But expectations were properly set and it exceeded them at almost every turn.
Today we’re joined again by Trevor from TrevorLovesEverything.com, and as you might expect he also loved this Gods of Egypt. Hopefully you’re as excited as we are for this final episode of Fantasy February. We’re sad to move on, but happy at the same time. If you’ve had fun with us this month, hit us up on Twitter and let us know! Maybe we’ll do more themes in the future. That said, it’s time to dive into Gods of Egypt on today’s episode of So…I’m Watching This Show!
