    *recovers from fainting spell after hearing Brendan Frasier belittled*

    While I loved the original mummy movies, I am apprehensive. This does kind of scream "milk the cash cow."

    On the other hand I am glad to see they're expanding their horizons a bit and acknowledging that yes, there are Chinese mummies. And I love the clay soldiers of the 1st Emperor (coolest tomb EVER in history. sorry, Egypt) Add that to my 1/2 Chinese heritage, I may just feel obligated to see this.

    I enjoyed the first two Mummy movies, but I won't be seeing any of the new movies mentioned here. It's being directed by the same guy who did xXx, one of my least favorite movies of all time, and because I have no interest in seeing a prequel to that boring-as-fuck Scorpion King movie.

    It was boring because, well, it was. A better description, you ask? Uh, it didn't do anything very well. The action was stale, lines were drull, characters bland, story so-so. I know it's an action film so I shouldn't expect much, but like I said, the action was stale. Really bad. I remembering seeing it on the day before my birthday, and I was ready to fall asleep throughout the entire movie. Ever since then, I've always done heavy research on a movie before seeing it with a hard watch on the reviews. Since then, I've never gone to see a movie I disliked.

    And xXx is the posterchild for the generic-take-every-clichque-out-of-the-book movie.

    They were both crappy regardless of who had the starring role.

    I remember this one time in high school, I said I hate xXx and this girl who was a hugh fan of the movie responded with 'Phhff, you're just afraid to try anything new"


    I laughed so hard because she was dead serious.

    I didn't feel any animosity toward xXx, sure it was a trashy spy flick, but Vin Diesel was the main attraction and that's what the movie delivered. I also liked his portrayal in Pitch Black, Dark Fury and The Chronicles of Riddick (though I liked the last the least, though it had potential).

    As for The Scorpion King, it was the weakest film in The Mummy line of films since it lacked all the quirks that makes a Stephen Sommer film entertaining (he didn't direct it).

    I felt Van Helsing was a good movie on par with the original Mummy film, Sommers should really do an Indiana Jones-like adventure in the future involving some sort of jungle. That, plus a space odyssey would make his action-adventure repertoire complete.

    I didn't know there was someone other than Lobster who thought Van Helsing was good.

    What was so bad about it? Butchered horror mythos? Stereotyped characters and non-existant development? Cheesy antagonists (brides) and ridiculous set-ups?

    Like any of that mattered.

    Even though it had all that. It was still a fun summer movie.
    A lot better then crap like "Interview With The Vampire"..

    And I loved Chronicles of Riddick. It was like a Live Action "Galaxy" arcade game.

    [it actually makes sense if you watch the directors cut; because all of the plot explanation was basically cut out of the theatrical version]

    Never saw Riddick. The commercials alone made me want to vomit out my anus.

    But seriously, a sequel to the Scorpion King? What next: an Ishtar sequel?

    That's enough reason for me to avoid it.

    You take movies waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too seriously young soft-drink.

    AWB....when you're out of Sunkist and Dr. Pepper.... AWB will hit the spot.

    *thumbs up*


    ANYWAY!

    Brendan Frasier is in another movie where he and several other characters are going through a 3-D adventure with dinosaurs and volcanoes. Favorite thing about this, the movie is being called the "next step in action flicks". 3-d has existed forever. Meh.

    It's not like I'm NOT going to watch any of these movies.
