Re: is the stargate movie any good

The original idea of the possessing alien was ridiculous. How can a human-sized being exist within another human-sized body? It's an anatomical absurdity, unless it skins the human host and just wears the skin around itself. The Goa'uld as fairly small parasites made more medical sense, as well as providing a good explanation for what evolutionary advantage these creatures would gain from the ability to take over larger, more dexterous hosts.
