Random Quote

By speech first, but far more by writing, man has been able to put something of himself beyond death. In tradition and in books an integral part of the individual persists, for it can influence the minds and actions of other people in different places and at different times: a row of black marks on a page can move a man to tears, though the bones of him that wrote it are long ago crumbled to dust.
-- Julian Huxley

The Forgettable Mummy

 

Tamara really liked the first two Mummy movies. This one? Not so much.

I liked Maria Bello in Shattered (aka Butterfly on a Wheel - surprisingly good movie), but she has zero chemistry with Brendan Fraser. I missed Rachel Wiesz, who wisely passed this flick by. The dialogue is that bad, and while it has its moments of campy fun, it's forgettable.

Coming on the heels of my viewing of The Dark Knight, it felt like watching a late night TNT ripoff of Indiana Jones IV. The only person who comes out of the movie with any bona fides is Michelle Yeoh, who manages to convey real depth in an otherwise paper mache production.
