I do not feel that these parallels were intentional.  The plot of the movie and the plot of the Heru-sa-Aset story is the same one that has been used in a thousand myths, books, and movies.

I've seen her as a tawny cat and a cat-headed woman of the same color wearing a white linen dress.  Once I actually physically saw her (not in a vision like all the other times) as a dark gray cat superimposed on her statue.  Then I almost fainted.

Almost all of the time she is a nurturing mother cat.  In the visions she gives me, the "me" is a little gray poofy kitten.

Although once I saw her in her ferocious aspect.  I spent a few nights in a friend's very haunted house because my own was temporarily in an unlivable condition at the time.  It was very stressful because the ghosts would not let me sleep for more than a couple of hours, and would do things like gawk at me in the shower.

On one of these nights, I could not sleep because every time I got into that state between being awake and being asleep, I would feel a heavy weight upon my chest.  A felt a cat jump onto the end of the bed and pace back and forth, and then I was able to sleep.  I had a dream in which I was trapped in a house by malevolent ghosts.  There were other people in the house, who insisted everything would be okay if we just cast a circle.  I grumbled to myself that their stupid Wiccan magic wasn't helping me, and I would call down my mother.  Then the curtains on the house's windows whipped about furiously, as if by hurricane force.  I heard this horrible, fierce, enraged yowling outside and then I told the other people that she was coming, and we kneeled down with our faces to the floor.

As for Mom and Set as "homies," I wouldn't be surprised; Set is my dad (with Khnum) and I have seen lots of other people with Bast and Set together as parents.

Khnum is one of my dads.  Somehow it seems kind of weird that he would be my dad with Set because one is a deity of creation and fertility and the other is a god of destruction and the sterile land.

The first time I met him, I was sitting on my bed reading a book.  Suddenly I was aware of an entity in the room who smelled like water, as in an ancient vast lake, who radiated coolness and serenity.  A feeling of fatherly love washed over me.  He didn't have to tell me who he was.  I already knew.

The strangest thing was that when I was a brand new pagan, I was flipping through a book on Egyptian deities and saw his picture.  I did not know who that was, being brand new and all, but when I saw the photo of him on a stelae, I had the thought, "I know who that is.  He is the nicest, most loving man." It was really weird, like seeing a photo of someone I had once known and forgotten but now remembered.

And it's true.  He is the kindest, gentlest netjer.

He loves not only pottery but artworks of all kinds.  I drew a picture of him and framed it and used it as an icon in his shrine.  I also made a sculpture of a ram for him.  He likes to sit beside me on the couch and watch me draw, sometimes giving suggestions of what to sketch when my mind is blank:  "You should draw a ram!"

Oh, and he loves libations of cool water.

Anpu, Aset, and Djehuty.

I am the awkward and socially clueless autistic child.  Interaction with most of them feels horrid, like I'm this idiotic little filthy peasant with no manners or understanding of what is going on, in front of a formal, well-mannered, and highly intelligent queen/king.

"Kemetic" people are not the only ones who can ask a Netjer for assistance; anyone who wants can talk to/request their help.

Yes, that's the one!

Well, for me it has always started with a feeling of attraction to the god or something he or she is associated with, like an animal.  

For example, one time I was looking through a website selling statuary and Egyptian-themed house decor.  There was a statue of Khnum holding a shield and spear.  I felt really drawn to it and put it on my mental list of things to buy when I  get some money.  I thought nothing else of it until a while later, three or four months or so, I was reading a book in bed and was suddenly aware of a male entity who radiated calmness and benevolence, and smelled of cool water---like lake or river water.  He started talking about the art supplies under my bed that had laid there untouched for over a year, and said that he wanted me to make arts and crafts for him.  He didn't say his name but I knew who it was.
