    More delicious Hammer Horror goodness. Fog, fancy men, and monsters! I really love these films, and boy do I really love Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee.

    The Mummy isn't one of the highest regarded films of the Hammer catalog, and it's not hard to see why with it's over reliance on "flash back" style storytelling that can pacing down. Luckily the set design during these scenes is just 50's soundstage brilliance, and it's the only time you get to see Lee without the bandages.

    Nevertheless The Mummy is classic Halloween goodness, and even if it's only late September, I'm already getting in the mood.

    The good - the story
    The bad - the way it's told
    The ugly - the CGI

    Does the good make up for the bad? It's a two and a half hour movie in a four film franchise, based on another movie which is a sequel to a 26 episode television show. Is it worth anyone's time to make that decision? Sure. Why not?

    Awful. Criminally boring. Maybe competing for the worst thing I've seen all year, but that award might still go to The Cloverfield Paradox. 

    I already don't like Black Mirror (yeah I know, sue me) but this is truly a new low.

    My second favorite portrayal of infidelity since Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice. People just took it differently back then. It was more philosophical than anything really.

    Anyways, great neo noir feature. Up there with Chinatown and The Long Goodbye. Lots of subtle noir references throughout the film as well. Neato.
