The Mummy
Friday, September 18, 2020      13 comments

The mummy came stumbling & juicy into theaters in 1999. This is not to be confused with the Boris Karloff’s version (although it’s fun to watch around Halloween!) Don’t confuse it with the 2015 film, either. Not as much fun! ... Read more

The Grey came snarling & growling onto movie screens in 2012.It was described as a survival movie. It was much more visceral than I thought it would be. Fair warning. The plot: a plane full of Alaskan oil workers are on their way home. A sudden... Read more
