I am a pretty big fan of the Stephen Sommers directed, 'The Mummy.' Everything about that movie was so over-the-top, but done in an admirable way that creates this strange feeling of emotion and logic mixing that I rarely feel during movies.
"Why do I like this? It's bad. OH WOW!! Did you just see Brendan Fraser scream at the mummy for absolutely no reason??!! What a riot! Wait, what was a I saying?"
The second Mummy was okay, but after a long-awaited return to the Mummy franchise, I went to the theaters with my mom to see this..... aaaannnnddddddd my 12 year-old heart was obliterated. Everything I loved about the original was absolutely atrocious here. I hated EVERYTHING. Even as a kid, I knew this film was utter garbage. The stupid action scenes, the bad acting, terrible writing, and incoherent plot made me wary of ever returning to 'The Mummy.'
P.S. I did and it is still fucking awesome
