Mummy: Return of the DragonEmperor  
On Sunday evening I saw the new Mummy movie with Kitty, Bandaid and Seanie. It was utterly ridiculous, like all the movies in that franchise. Seanie thought that it didn't match the chronology of the previous movies; it just didn't seem like enough time for Alex (the son) to have grown from cute, precocious brat to arrogant twenty-something hottie.

I wasn't too crazy about the new actress for Evelyn. I mean, she did fine, but she and Fraser just didn't have that same spark that Rachel Weisz brought to the role. Anyone know why she didn't come back for Round 3? (IMDB says "Rachel Weisz announced that she will not be reprising her role of Evelyn due to different interests with the screenplay." That's too bad.)

Michelle Yeoh is awesome and can do whatever she wants.

Fun movie. Don't know that I'd ever see it again, but it was fun.

I've been trying to convince Brian to go see that movie with me. Apparently he doesn't quite understand the so-awful-it's-wonderful appeal of the Mummy movies. I am sad that Rachel Weisz didn't come back, but generally actors who aren't desparate for roles tend to shy away from sequels since they usually bomb. I'm surprised she did the second one.
