Essential Seven Movie Gods

Gods or Deities, have always played a part in movie culture (oh and books!). Whether you believe in a God or not, the concept of a being that is worshipped is depicted in many different forms. Some depictions are of the Christian GOD. Other’s are supernatural or just objects. Of course you can’t overlook the fact that some don’t believe in anything. I’m not here to judge! Obviously religion is a touchy subject. Not everybody will enjoy this list.  Trying to stay away from a religious discussion, here are the Essential Seven Movie Gods:

7) Sha Ka Ree

Convincing Sybok that he was God, or the Vulcan mythological God Sha Ka Ree (almost pronounced Sean Connery), Sybok gathers followers who take control of the USS Enterprise to travel to the center of the  universe. Sybok and everybody else believed it to be true except for Kirk, who wanted to see God’s ID. After all, what does GOD need with a starship?


6) God (Alanis Morissette)

Trapped in mortal form as an old man who likes to play skee ball, God (played by Alanis Morissette) is released and manifests herself at the Catholic church stopping Bartleby from entering Heaven. God kills Bartleby, with the power of Her voice stopping the angel from overruling the word of God and destroying existence, and giving Jay “half a stock” when she kissed him.


5) Ra

Known as the sun god of Abydos, Ra was the first of the Goa’uld to encounter human beings. He used humans as hosts, and is responsible for spreading the race all over the galaxy. He was no match for Jack O’Neil who gave us the epic line as he killed Ra, “Give my regards to King Tut, asshole!”


4) The Claw

The Claw is the “God” worshiped by the little green aliens from Toy Story. Stuck inside the Pizza Planet crane game, they live to be “chosen” by the claw. With as much luck as I have with these crane games, I doubt many of them move on to a better place.


3) Thor

The Norse mythological God of Thunder, Thor hit theaters last year. Of course this version of Thor is based on the Marvel comics character that is loosely based on the Norse hammer-wielding god. Thor was exiled from his homeland confined to Earth, where he gets to make out with Natalie Portman. Let’s all feel sorry for poor Thor.


2) God (George Burns)

George Burns played God in the three Oh, God! films. George was so old that, he looked what people would think God looked like. Out of all three Oh, God! films, my favorite was the part 3 where he played both God and the Devil who was George Burns with red eyes. Many actors have portrayed God, but nobody did it better than George Burns. Also, God smoking a giant stogie is just epic!


1) Gozer

“Gozer the destructor, Volguus Zildrohar the traveler has come!” The entity from another dimension is summoned into a pre-chosen forms to destroy the world. Gozer has returned as a Torb, a Sloar, and a giant Marshmallow Man.  If you’re asked if you are a God, be sure you say yes, and aim for the flat top!
