Dr. Jackson at one point refers to the writing as "heiroglyphics," which no self-respecting Egyptologist would ever do. "Heiroglypic" is an adjective. An Egyptologist would call the writing either "heiroglyphs" or "heiroglyphic writing." See more »
Stargate the movie :- superb atmosphreric music, great special effects, excellent cast, intriguing story but - not surprised it launched a successful TV series which has run and run. I cant believe there are so called sci fi fans out there who didn't like it - must be intellectuals!!! I still enjoy the film now 1o years later although disappointed they never made a sequel as it was set up for one. Never really liked the ending - should have included the return to earth. The TV series has moved the story along nicely - even changes to the cast have worked well and i particularly enjoy the dry humour of the TV series.
