Pick of the Week:

As a kid of the 90s I grew up watching Brendan Fraser fighting the evils of ancient Egypt in The Mummy so I was already interested in what this new take would bring. It is probably a good thing that this The Mummy and the one from 1999 are not connected at all as the new film is the start of the Universal Monsters Cinematic Universe (They may need a better name for it). I am really eager to see how this movie fits into the larger universe that will include Frankenstein’s Monster and the Invisible Man. I also think the casting of Russell Crowe as Dr Jekyll may be some of the best casting in recent memory.

The Mummy is my Pick for this week.
