The Mummy (2017) - Tom Cruise and the start of Universal's monster universe


#161

Still think they should have called it the Universalverse.

We watched this a couple weeks ago, and all I can remember about it now is the airplane/morgue stuff that was in the trailer.


#164

Honestly, the trailer that was inadvertently released without music and just had Tom Cruise grunting was easily the best thing about this whole disaster.

Edit: still available - stick in for the plane crash part: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kRqxyqjpOHs

I’ve tried watching this a few times now. All I can do is watch it 10 minutes at a time. Each 10 minute segment is just so stupid and boring.

I just want to be able to get through the whole thing so I can listen to the Qt3 podcast for this movie, but it’s going to be tough. It’s just … arrrrgh, it’s so mediocre.

But cute little Sofia Boutella!

I would watch a monster universe movie where there is a dance off between Sofia Boutella and Chris Pratt.


#168

Do you think she would succumb to his pelvic sorcery?

Not between Sofia Boutella and the terrible exposition-through-hips work of Cara Delevingne?

After a second viewing of Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets – yeah, a second viewing, what of it? – I have decided that I will not brook any nonsense about Cara Delevingne, even in her performance as filthy voodoo cavegirl* in Suicide Squad.

Is Valerian good? I never even heard of it till now.


#172

Not even a little.


#173

It’s streaming on Amazon Prime so I sat down to watch it, because I’m a big fan of Luc Besson’s work in the 1990s. Turns out I was rewarded with about 40 minutes of stuff happening on the screen before I switched over to watching Star Trek Beyond instead.


#174

What???


#175

I almost have to see it now, if Tom has watched it TWICE.


#176

Those are real people? I thought they were CG?

Hey, I can relate to watching terrible, semi-big-budget sci-fi movies multiple times- I’ve watched Jupiter Ascending a few myself.


#179

Hah, I was so bored (the wife out of town) last Saturday that I watched something on NetFlix called “Singularity.” Arguably the worst movie I’ve ever seen. Even worse than “The Black Hole” which is my go-to for worst movie ever.

Hey you take that back, I love The Black Hole! Which is to say I loved it forty years ago and I see no reason why my opinion should have changed.
