It’s a cheesy headline for a Monstrous Monday. I’ve just been trolling Facebook for monster pictures I have not used, and I came across a movie poster from a Mummy movie I have not seen.
They may have shown this recently on TCM. I know there were a few mummy movie on Sunday night I had meant to DVR. Oh well, I have other things on my DVR I have yet to watch. So many movies (and Dateline episodes), so little time.
Now there’s a mummy, if you like. I did not notice what movie it was from, but I believe it is Lon Chaney, Jr. I like the black-and-white, spooky atmospheric quality.
In searching for more mummy pictures, I found about 3,568 of Tom Cruise. I had the opposite of desire to see that remake. Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz for me!
I like The Mummy Returns (2001) even better. It is rare that I like a sequel at all, but this one was thoroughly delightful. I shall close with a scene from it.
Rachel Weisz gets to kick butt in the sequel. I gotta love a gorgeous woman kicking butt. Maybe I should go kick a few myself. But first, I’m going to watch a little Dateline. Monday is the day OWN shows multiple episodes. I love Dateline.
