4K UHD Review: ‘The Mummy’ (2017)

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 13th, 2017

THE FILM


(This film portion was written by Fernando Martinez)

The Mummy (1999) is by far one of the best movies I’ve ever seen.  Written and directed by Stephen Sommers, it works as an homage to classic monster movies, great adventures, and old school “hero of the day” golden age of cinema films. Starring Brendan Fraser, Rachel Weisz, and what can only be described as a truly breakout performance by Arnold Vosloo as The Mummy Himself, Imhotep!

Universal Pictures is rebooting their monster movie franchise and the first tent pole to be staked is ‘The Mummy‘ debuting on June 9, 2017. Director Alex Kurtzman (‘People Like Us‘) worked with a stellar cast to kick off this new universe where all the films will be entwined and venture into each other’s films  à la the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We see the first crossover as Rusell Crowe’s Dr. Henry Jekyll is very visible in this film, or at least in the trailer. The cast includes Sofia Boutella, Tom Cruise, Annabelle Wallis, Chasty Ballesteros, and Courtney B. Vance.

Hey guys, Jana here,

the-mummy-poster

I love Universal’s monster movies and I couldn’t have been more thrilled when I heard the company was rebooting the films into huge tentpole events all the while adding more depth to the classic monster universe. First up for renovation was ‘The Mummy‘ with Tom Cruise attached. Say what you will about him personally, or even religiously, but the man can carry a film and I’m nothing but excited for it. I suppose Universal hopes others feel that way, and have gifted us a little teaser to give us a small taste of what this movie can be.

After hearing that Tom Cruise has been set to star in ‘The Mummyreboot, it should come as no surprise that a huge name like Johnny Depp would be attached to ‘The Invisible Man‘ reboot. When Universal sets its mind to creating a movie monster universe that makes us think Marvel, they come out of the gate swinging. First Cruise, now Depp, what is next and who is behind this? Angelina Jolie for ‘Bride of Frankenstein‘ maybe?

Hey guys, Jana here,

bryan-fuller

Bryan Fuller is a name known for such shows as ‘Hannibal‘ and ‘Pushing Daisies‘, but if you go a little further into Fuller’s past, you’ll find a sci-fi fan first and foremost. In fact, Fuller became a writer with the hopes of writing for Gene Roddenberry’s juggernaut that is the ‘Star Trek‘ universe. He achieved that goal and began his writing career writing for ‘Star Trek: Voyager‘ and ‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine‘. Now he’s back where it all started, taking on the mantle of showrunner and co-creator of the new Trek series coming from CBS.

Hey guys, Jana here,

GOLDEN GLOBES TOM CRUISE WITH AWARD

Universal has made no secret about their wanting to re-launch their original monster universe. You know, The Mummy, Dracula, Frankenstein, The Invisible Man, all the favorites, and why not? These are great stories that can be excellent every time they’re retold. What will make the difference now, besides having a damn good special FX team, is the star. You’ve got to have some massive star-power to anchor a film of this magnitude, especially if it’s the first of their reboots on the monster series, they want it to go off with a global bang.

Hi Bryan Here….

So J.J. is back from vacation and is done with all things ‘Super 8’ for the time being, that he has put his focus on ‘Star Trek 2’.  He is currently co-writing with Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman, and Damon Lindelof on the sequel to Star Trek.  He is hoping for a production start in January.  And Chris Pine is definitely reprising his role as Captain Kirk.  So far, a script and story has not been approved, but the studio is ready when the script and Abrams is.  I’m sure everyone will be returning.  I wonder if we will get a Shatner cameo this time around.

Bryan’s Most Anticipated Films for 2011!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 7th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here…

So 2010 is over and 2011 has just begun.  I was recently talking with a friend and we both agreed that 2010 was kind of a let down as far as movies went.  Don’t get me wrong, there were some precious gems riddled throughout the year, but they were not many.  Basically I said, that it was a very uncool year with flashes of coolness in regards to films.

Hi Bryan Here…

Here is the new kick-ass trailer for Jon Favreau’s “Cowboys & Aliens“.  It looks amazing.  It reminds me of early Spielberg work with a pinch of Sonnenfeld and Donner.  This has just been added to my most anticipated films of 2011.  I love that we have Daniel Craig pretty much being James Bond in this film.  at least that is what it looks like.
