What...you saw another movie!?! Yes, Sissy and I schlepped downtown and saw another movie. What movie, you ask? The Mummy Tomb of the Dragon Emperor...yes, The Mummy! I know, not deep, but still fine holiday fun in my book. There is one spoiler in here, as usual, I will type it in white...if you need to know, highlight.
You get what you pay for with this one. Fun CGI, lots of action, not much plot, and no depth whatsoever. That aside, I enjoyed it, for what it was. As long as you can get past totally cheesey lines like "The Yeti will help." or "The yak, yakked!" or "Your butt's on fire!" it isn't so bad. I can't believe that the actors could deliver their lines with a straight face!Granted, there is no plot, but I thought they missed the mark completely with the ending. You have a two thousand year love triangle between the Emperor, the General, and the Witch. The Witch dies taking the magic sword from the Emperor...Seems to me, the General should take the sword from his dying love (who he hasn't seen in oh, two thousand years) and kill the Emperor (who killed him, btw). I don't know seems like a pretty good ending to me! Ah well, they didn't ask me, and they have the wrong ending! If you're bored, go see it, if not, it's a rental.
On a totally unrelated front...The Bro made it to Beijing! For those of you who don't know, my Bro is part of the press core for The Olympics. I set up a blog for him, (they're working him pretty hard, so I don't know how much he can update) but go check it out...tell him Nap Warden sent you:)
