    The Mummy Returns

    Really just complete garbage.

    So apparently the events of the first film changed Rachel Weisz's character from a doughy librarian into an adventuring sex pot.

    I just finished the movie seconds ago, and I honestly can't tell you what it is about. Imhotep is brought back to life again, and is paired up with the reincarnated body of Anck Su-Namun. They want something. There is a Scorpion King, who is dead, and gets brought to life. He doesn't seem to…

    ★★★★½

    World building. This is what I take away from CHILDREN OF MEN. Alfonso Cuaron did such an amazing job of developing the world in which these characters live, that it is hard to think of them anywhere else, even though they are not that far removed from the world we live in now. I'm not a huge fan of BLADE RUNNER, but Ridley Scott did the same thing there.

    Of course this film is visually stunning, if not a bit…
