Apparently there is a new film out with Egyptian stuff in it:

Paul Rehak & I saw the movie "Stargate" yesterday (nice thing about being
on Sabbatical!), and half the film is in ancient Egyptian (with English 
subtitles!) "reconstructed" by Stuart Smith!


Our hero and his Egyptian girl friend (descended from ancient Egyptians 
though living on another planet -- this is not a movie that taxes the 
mind) are browsing through some ancient hieroglyphs which she begins to 
read aloud; our hero, an Egyptologist, picks up on the language 
immediately: "all I needed were the correct vowels!", as well as the 
correct accentuation, we might add.


There's a lot of morphing here as well as the marines (Kurt Russell), but 
no karate (alas).
