7 years after the events of the first movie, Rick & Evie O’Connell, along with Alex, their 8 year old son?! Wait....where was this 1 year old baby in the first movie? This is just weird. Whatever. When the badass charismatic O’Connell discovers the legendary McGuffin....er I mean Bracelet of Anubis, unfortunately the newly resurrected Imhotep is destroying everything in his path looking for the bracelet, in his quest for immortality. To make matters even worse, their previously undiscovered son Alex gets kidnapped after he gets the bracelet attached to his arm. Now it’s up Rick, Evie along with her wacky brother Jonathan to stop Imhotep & Dwayne “The Scorpion King” Johnson from annihilating the world. From the director of 1993’s The Adventures Of Huck Finn & 1994’s live action adaptation of The Jungle Book, comes another exciting tomb raiding adventure & the movie that gave birth to The Rock as the action star we have today. Let’s rewatch Encino Man take on Imhotep & the most electrifying man in ancient sports entertainment. Finally!!! The mummy has comeback......to Egypt.
The Mummy Returns
Dave Grohl turns 50 this week, so we're honoring his two most famous projects with a #QOTD on Buddhism and UFOs! “Rock Bottom” and “Only You Can Rock Me” were songs by UFO, a band that borrowed guitarist Michael Schenker from what German group that rocked you like something else?
I can’t believe it’s taking me so long to see these movies, but I finally got caught up with #themummy trilogy (save for the newest one; that’s in the mail. LOL). Lots of thoughts indeed...like sometimes a franchise can outlive it’s welcome with unnecessary sequels. With the exception of @brendan__fraser who is FANTASTIC in all 3 (consider me now a #fraserheads and #rachelweisz all 3 films in order from worst to best... #themummyreturns ... unnecessary character development with some atrocious CGI affects (I.e. #scorpionking ). #themummytombofthedragonemperor ... better CGI with an OK but weak story that doesn’t live up to by far the best in the franchise ... #themummy . Such an excellently made and fun movie. LOVED that one.
“Look, I... I may not be an explorer, or an adventurer, or a treasure-seeker, or a gunfighter, Mr. O'Connell, but I am proud of what I am.”
“And what is that?”
“I... am a librarian!” Inspiration since 1999 💖
