The giant snakes raise clouds of dust and sand as though they were large tubes of meat being towed across the desert. Snakes don't move like this, for individual belly scales take it in turns to stand stationary, while the others ripple forwards clear of the ground. This can be clearly seen in the wildlife documentary Planet Earth II where racer snakes chase iguanas that kick up sand with their feet, but the snakes seem to just glide at speed since they never disturb the sandy surface.

It's fine. I'll do it.
I thought you were a stray baboon.
I told you I'd be the one to face the Sphinx.
Your chance of failure is overwhelming.
I'm sure. But before it kills me, I'm going to tell it that I asked the God of Wisdom to come but he was afraid he'd get the answer wrong.
This is the cleverest strategy you could devise? Playing on my ego? How vain do you think I am?

Yes, well... Fine. Fine! Let's go.

Seeing some of the reviews online, I wonder if people just watch a movie while relaxing anymore. I thought this movie had great effects, a pretty good story line, and very likable characters. I even liked the bad guys. I see many people commented that the cast was too 'white'. Do they bitch about Star Wars people being too 'human'? Come on people, this is fantasy. It is OK to have 13 foot tall 'gods' walking around as long as they are ethnically correct??? Do you think Egypt really looked like that in those days? This is a fairy tale. Not real life. Just like the tales of the bible. Sit down and enjoy a movie once in a while. Don't try to nit-pick through the whole movie! And for Christ's sake, RELAX once in a while!
