    I always associate "The Mummy" with Egypt, so....I really don't know about that. And they don't have that hot chick as Eevee, so that's a total bummer.

    They replaced Rachel Weisz(sp?) and its like one of those series that needs to die. I enjoyed the first one. The 2nd was ok..... But a 3rd....


    I'll wait until video.

    I'd like to think that it will be good, but my gut tells me that it's going to suck, and whenever I get the feeling about a movie, it usually ends up being true. I saw Indy 4 with a bunch of people, and I kept telling them it was going to blow ass and that I was going in with extremely low expectations. They kept saying "no dude, just watch, you'll be pleasantly surprised!" And...it blew ass.

    My thought on this is, when the actors in a franchise start jumping ship after reading the script for the next installment, that probably means it's reached the point of "we just some more of your money" rather then still being a worthwhile piece of entertainment.

    I say this on here, but God knows I'll probably shell out my 9 bucks for it...

    It looks like it could be a good movie to just sit down and watch. Not a whole lot of thinking involved. Sometimes its a nice break from some of the mind fuck movies I normally watch.

    I think there's squeezing the last bit of money out of this franchise

    I've never seen any of the Mummy movies all the way through. :ph34r:

    I've also never seen even a single episode of Friends, so maybe I'm just weird.

    I used the watch the first mummy everyday for like 2 months straight. I remember my mom got it in October of my 5th grade year.

    I agree about the first two being good, scorpion king has its value, more of a laugh really especially with The Rock. I love Jet Li and i love those asian fight em all movies but im not sure about this. Mummies seem classically confined to the Egyptians. Many other races have mummies too but its not what you think of when its talked about. I'm sure they could have thought of another way to continue the original 2 movies. But we will see when it comes out. No rachel weiz is a huge blow to the series.

    Its just not interesting me like the others.

    Alright people, I saw this movie today. My verdict...meh. It was about as good as the second one, not quite as good as the first. A decent popcorn flick, but certainly nothing more.

    Also, it feels kinda detached from the rest of the series, probably because 1.) it's not set in Egypt anymore, and 2.) they have a different chick playing Monica Belluci's part in it.

    Oh, and unfortunately, Jet Li is wasted in this movie. He barely has any dialog, and his fight scenes aren't that great...
