I’m back for another movie pick of the week! I want to mix it up and give you a suggestion that is not “new,” but may be new to you.
I was watching one of my favorite classic movies and was reminded how much fun this film is. The movie in question is 1999’s “The Mummy” with Brendan Fraser.
Treasure hunting explorers find an ancient tomb, which sets off a curse of epic proportions. There is suspense, action, a great cast, and an interesting story and we are introduced to the Medjai!
Brendan Fraser is a great leading man and a fantastic action star with comedic timing. Even though it is more than two decades old, the special effects are still top notch. “The Mummy” is a damn fun film to revisit.
Aside the great FX, the manner in which the dialog and overall story is told is reminiscent of the golden age of Hollywood, so high marks for the delivery. This has become a classic with a great genre following.
Give it a re-watch and enjoy with the family. You can watch it now on HBOMAX, Hulu, Amazon Prime, YouTube, Vudu.
