Debt to Cinema

Debt to Cinema 090: The Mummy (1999)

Of their many monsters, Universal has seemed most interested in keeping The Mummy alive forever. Between this weekend’s Dark Universe re-reboot with Tom Cruise, the original Karloff features, and of course this debt, Stephen Sommer’s turn of the century swashbuckling, treasure seeking, adventure that kicked off a trilogy, it appears opening the sarcophagus is always a good idea #DimeADozen

Dollar Reviews 023: The Do-Over/Preacher/X-Men: Apocalypse

This week I decided to be a cheap jerk and make Steve catch Adam Sandler’s second Netflix exclusive, The Do-Over, as well as Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Preacher pilot (22:15). Steve caught the natural header, X-Men: Apocalypse in 3D (32:45) and last year’s Cannes standout, The Lobster (42:12). Finally, I saw another comicbook pilot in Cinemax’s Outcast (54:49) and give my impressions of Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate (58:49).
