The Mummy: Now With Bonus Yetis!

<i>The Mummy</i>: Now With Bonus Yetis!

I have a confession to make: I went into The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (or as we've nicknamed it in the office -- Temple of Doom Rush Album, for obvious reasons) wanting to like it because well, I genuinely feel sorry for it. I like Brendan Fraser and I love to see him in something successful, and I'm actually a fan of the first installment of the franchise for what it is -- a silly romp with good-looking actors and some fun special effects. It's also not the movie's fault that it has a ridiculous title and the unfortunate circumstance of being released after amazing action flicks like Iron Man, The Dark Knight, Wanted and even superior archaeologists-kick-some-ace movie The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. So all that being said, I do have some positive things to say about the movie, but the sad truth is it is as big a disaster as you'd think.

Invisible Man Resurfaces

<i>Invisible Man</i> Resurfaces A sequel to The Invisible Man is in the works, according to ShockTillYouDrop.com. I'm not talking about the similarly-titled Chevy Chase movie from 1992, or any of the series that have been popping up on TV every few years since the 1950s. No, this is going to be a sequel to the original movie based on the H.G. Wells story that your great-grandparents saw in the theaters three-quarters of a century ago. Man, and I thought twenty-five years was a long time to wait for a Tron follow-up.

Mamma Mia! There you go again! My, my. I cannot escape you!

Mamma Mia! There you go again! My, my. I cannot escape you! Please allow me this short rant. When I went to see Hellboy II, I walked into a theater that looked like a shrine to ABBA. There were at least five posters for Mamma Mia hanging from the ceiling. MM's star, Amanda Seyfried, stared accusingly at me from my popcorn and soda containers, as if to say "I can't believe you ordered a Diet Pepsi to go with that extra large tub of popcorn." The player piano in the lobby loudly played an ABBA tune that, absent the insipid lyrics, sounded prettier than I remembered. "I hate that song," said the pimply-faced teen who, a few seconds prior, had bogarted me into buying the aforementioned extra large popcorn "for just fifty cents more!" I looked at his name tag and understood where his ABBA hatred stemmed from: The tag said Fernando.
