    Since Burns couldn't even walk straight without his glasses and the mummy used Burns's eyes for rebuilding his form, the mummy should need prescription glasses too.

    Your Brendan dislike is weird, the combination of him and Rachel legitimately makes this movie.

    This was one of my favorites as a kid and still is. I'll admit I'm sort of biased as Fraser is one of my favorite and most unappreciated actors (go watch him in with honors before judging this comment, it's on TheXvid)

    I actually liked the 1932 movie. Classic in my opinion, compared to the others? They were more action than horror. Sure theres a few creepy scenes and occasional scares but it's not the same as the old and ORIGINAL one

    I love this movie is it was the first action adventure movie saw, i have great respect for the 1932 original which i saw after this.
    I am happy that they did not try to just remake a great horror movie like the other remakes of the time like frankenstein and dracula.

    Really felt like you were kinda pointlessly nitpicking on this one critic. Like complaining about the guy screaming at 11:30. What was he supposed to do? Bust out in a happy jig as a bug was eating him from the inside out?

    By the time I am checking this video, I just wonder, critic are you confusing review critics with pure mean criticism? cause man, can you be more wrong? However, the part about the curse was pretty fun, however, it just has to do with the fact that they were mummifying a living and that was an offense to the gods, thats why, if ever that victim gets freed, it will become extremely powerful. Reading a history book from time to time does not hurt.

    To me Brendan Fraiser then would have made a good Nathan Drake today.

    first ep I've seen by you. I get that you like the 1932 version but you made a really really biased video... Not really something you look for in a critic. Lost a potential subscriber

    Gotta get this out there Doug, but the 1932 movie is boring. One of the worst of the old school Universal Monster Movies IMO. Mummy's Hand was better, but that went for an action adventure feel that was preserved by the 1999 movie. The only Mummy Movie that was truly horror and good IMO was the Hammar Film. And of course that's better, it's a Hammar Film.

    I disagree about Bruce Campbell as the lead. (Despite him being one of my favorite actors)
    This came out in between Army of Darkness and Burn Notice.
    This is when Bruce Campbell was transitioning to "Older Bruce" (Look at him in From Dusk Till Dawn 2) So he would have looked WAY to old to hook up with the female lead.(He would have been 41 and her 29)
    Plus Brandon Fraser did a good job. As well as Rachel Weisz who you would have to probably replace to get somebody closer to Bruce's age.

    In that opening "CG" shot of Thebes only the background is CG (the pyramids), the foreground is a physical 1/8th scale model. All the people were shot of a green screen and composited in .... so arguably that shot is mostly "real".

    I think the whole thing with the curse was that being brought back to life is very, VERY unlikely to happen (understandably), so they didn't worry that much about him getting superpowers, which was the "side-effect" of his curse. The main point of the curse was that his soul would suffer, IMMENSELY, on the other side.

    This movie works on pure nostalgia and if you like comedic characters. And you'll hate it if you compare it with '37. And if you're like me... you'll just be meeeh.

    I loved the 1999 mummy film. To be honest almost all your criticisms about this film was very narrow minded and very nit picky.

    Can you please do a review of 'The Mummy Returns' and 'Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emporer'. You'd definitely have loads to talk about with them.

    I always thought that the guy with the fez looked like Dijon from Duck Tales. Especially the end of the movie when all the gold is falling out of his pants.
