Quoe Review: The Mummy (1999)

“When Ramses destroyed Syria, that was an accident. You are a catastrophe!”

Even as a by-the-numbers action/adventure film, The Mummy manages to pull off a few things that so many other films don’t.  The story, for all intents and purposes, is interesting and completely coherent.  Its characters are quirky, fun and memorable, especially Rachel Weisz and John Hannah.  But best of all: there’s rarely (if ever) a single moment you aren’t entertained to some extent.  The Mummy is just a wonderful popcorn flick with enough substance to help it stand higher than most of its siblings.

Do you enjoy The Mummy?  What do you think of it?

Quote Reviews: The Adventures of Tintin (2011)

“How’s your thirst for adventure, Captain?”

The story and themes are very much reminiscent of Indiana Jones and serve little beyond giving an action/adventure set up, but that’s precisely what Tintin is here to accomplish. Combine this with shockingly immaculate production, animation and top-notch editing, and we have a truly enjoyable experience that holds up for an optimal theatrical experience.
