Here's a look at Princess Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella) in The Mummy remake.

Is it necrofilia to want to bone a living Mummy?

PS: that's kinda what's wrong with this movie. Those chose a hottie to be a horrific monster. Kinda messes with the message.

To give Sofia Bouttella's Ahmanet some credit, I'm not getting any direct Enchantress vibes from her any more; I think she will probably be her own character and not a knockoff of a pretty lame villain. As for me, I don't necessarily have a fear of catching necrophilia, since being dead or undead is something of a turn-off for me. I hope this movie surprises me.

I just can't help but wonder how  well this would do. I still think all the past mummy movies that were made under Universal and later Hammer, got as famous as they did due to the time period in which they were made and Egyptian discoveries were still a hot thing back then. Now...not so much.

The more I think about, I can't help but wonder if they made the mummy a female since having a strong female protagonist would come across as an obvious Lara Croft wanna be.

Since I'm here, I might as well tell y'all some of my favorite horror films. My personal favorites are John Carpenter's The Thing, An American Werewolf in London, Hatchet, The Wild Beasts (a very obscure Italian horror film), The Conjuring, The Horror of Dracula, Tremors, Evil Dead 2, The 80s Blon Remake, and the 80's Fly Remake.

Another great actor for the new film. I Honestly wish that Rob Zombie was still directingbit though. But I'm still excited none the less.

I like the second and third one just fine, but the first one was always the one that did it for me. Mostly because it took it seriously, without slapstick comedy, and also because there hasn't really been anything like that before.

But for the comedy part, I do find Ash vs Evil Dead entertaining.

I think Evil Dead 2 usually gets the praise as a favorite is what it does to Ash. I love the original, but Bruce Campbell plays it fairly straight and while he still gives a good performance, his character becomes much more developed in Evil Dead 2. Despite the slapstick, he plays normal in the opening, he acts insane, and finally he just has too much and goes badass to fight the evil (without the full action hero/ smart ads turn of the third film).

Yeah I know the second one is the film everyone likes. And it's still good, but every time I watch it, I never afterwards remember what happens in it, it's a big blur. Until the tree shows up anyway.

And also for the longest time I thought it was just supposed to be a complete remake of the first film, with the opening retconning the first film and Ash coming to the cabin for the "second time". Only couple of years ago I realized that wasn't the case. IMO they didn't do that good of a job in executing that aspect.

I hope that for Ash vs Evil Dead season 3, they'd bring along Renee O'Connor and maybe even Kevin Sorbo lol. Now that'd truly be a complete Xena/Hercules reunion, as not only do they already have Campbell, Lucy Lawless and Ted Raimi (well his character died I guess but that doesn't matter lol) there, but also Michael Hurst and Sam Raimi directed a couple of episodes. Plus some of the smaller role New Zealanders who were in Xena/Hercules are there as well. The spirit of Xena lives in Evil Dead Laughing

I love the entire trilogy, but for some reason the second film has grasped most of my admiration. I don't really know how to explain it.

Lol I literally had forgotten I ever even watched the remake. And I think it's only been like a year since I saw it. It was okay I guess, at least the first half when it had some ideas about the... withdrawals or whatever that girl had.

If only had they waited a couple of years, and they'd probably skipped it altogether in favor of AvsED

It's funny, but when I think about it, I don't think I've ever seen Bruce Campbell in anything else than the Evil Dead and Xena/Hercules franchises. And one episode of X-Files.

I never watched it but he was on a pretty long running show called Burn Notice. He also cameoed in all three Raimi Spider-Man films, and Darkman as well. He was in Cars 2 which I only saw for my kids. He also did a silly film called My Name is Bruce poking fun at his career I enjoyed. He was the coach in Disney's Sky High. He was elderly Elvis fighting a mummy on Bubba Ho-Tep. There's others too but that's all I can think of off the top of my head.

So I decided to take a look at the early 90's comedy Repossessed. It was said to be sort of a mix of the Naked Gun films with a parody of The Exorcist, even Leslie Nielsen starred in it. It was bad. Rating wise, I'd give it a 4/10. Why still a 4 if it was so bad?

Honestly some of the jokes worked. The acting for the most part was competent,even though it felt like everyone was trying to hard. I enjoyed seeing Linda Blair try to riff on her most known role. The whole thing just doesn't come together though, the jokes really falter in the second half, and without decent humor and not even a great parody of The Exorcist itself, it left it feeling boring in stretches. Still, I managed a few laughs so it wasn't a complete waste of time.

I'm of a few opinions about this. Considering it was on a fairly mediocre cable channel, my hopes weren't high. Then Shaymalan was involved, which at one point sounded awful, but his last few films have been a turn around and I genuinely enjoyed them. Then there's the fact, I love Tales from the Crypt, and I'd like to see it return. So I guess I'm sad we didn't get to see how this would've turned out, but I'm not really upset.

Then there's the fact that the Cryptkeeper from the first incarnation couldnt be on the show because HBO owns the rights to the character. That's probably why TNT canned it.

It looks like many in Universal are concerned about The Mummy reboot.

I see Wonder Woman still maintaining her top spot on the second box office weekend and The Mummy being second. Not only that, but I still have a lot of doubts about this whole thing working.

I don't get why people see those movies. Even more so considering how the director is a convicted pedophile. And sorry, serving just 3 years in prison is not justice. He should have got at least 14 years.

Watch an "open secret" on YouTube. You would be stunned about how much Pedophile activities are going on with some pretty high profile directors and producers. Sure they haven't proven anything..... but the claims are fairly convincing. 

I think that sadly we probably support pedophiles in the film industry all the time without even knowing it. 

Now personally I love jeepers creepers but I think this guy should have never been allowed to work again. 

I don't mean to start a huge debate but it's disturbing to me that you can basically be blacklisted in Hollywood for saying certain things that aren't politically correct, but pedo people get to come right back? Messed up world.
