I'm a huge movie buff. Dammit I watch a new movie every week, sometimes twice a week if there are enough movies to watch. But somehow, I never get to write about them often enough so I'm going to write one now for a new movie that has just come out.
A few days ago, UIP invited a few of us Nuffnangers to the Press Screening of the new Mummy movie from Brandon Fraser.I was always wondering when they were going to make the 3rd Mummy.
Mummy is one of those movie franchises to me that makes you come out of the cinema not necessarily emotional attached to the movie, but certainly with a smile on your face from all the good entertainment value.
Lots of fun humour, good action and great computer graphics.Now in another typical Mummy movie, I was a little worried that they might do another Egyptian Mummy which gets boring after you've done it twice... but this time they actually did a Chinese Mummy! A good change!
And the Chinese Mummy was none other than Jet Li!
Yes I'm a fan of Jet Li!
For me, he's all the way up there along with Jackie Chan.
And to name another member of the cast worth watching the movie for...
Datuk Michelle Yeoh!The best Malaysian actor of our time if you ask me.
Anyway I'm not going to spoil the movie for everyone before you guys catch it this weekend but I'm going to tell you what I liked and what I didn't like about it.
I liked how the story although fictional still blended in with actual Ancient Chinese History of the Terracotta Soldiers. I've never seen a movie that had Terracotta soldiers actually fighting as an army.
I liked how the movie had a lot of explosive entertaining scenes... gosh I can't ever get enough of all that.
I liked the computer graphics of the movie, thought it was great.
I liked Jet Li and Michelle Yeoh in the movie, and Brandon Fraser too.
But let me tell you what I didn't like.There were two couples in the movie, Rick O'Connell (Brendan Fraser) with his wife and his son in the movie, Alex O'Connell and his Chinese girlfriend Lin.
I thought that as much as they tried to play on the romance of Alex and Lin, the two just had ZERO on-screen chemistry. They were such a bad couple!
But overall, I think it was still an entertaining movie certainly worth watching. So catch it this weekend if you have the time guys!
It's Friday! JOM WHO WANTS TO GO CLUBBING TOMORROW!!!
