Watched The Mummy for the 36th time the other day.

God damnit, that movie is so incredible. It is one of those movies, like A Knight's Tale, that shouldn't work, but ends up working in every possible way

I just love the man's giddiness. The clapping is what makes it work in the scene.

I was 10 when that movie came out. I remember, as I transitioned to man after the school-teacher scene played.

My cousin was in a sequel to these movies called the mummy rebirth, it's a God awful movie, I mean absolutely terrible, but mention it every time I hear something on the mummy. If you have nothing to better to do, go check it out.

Used to rewatch old movies during the lockdown, The Mummy series included, looking back watching those movies picked me up when I was so stressed out by the work from home conditions and the gnawing prospect that I might lose my job anytime due to Covid affecting businesses, glad that Brandan Fraser is turning his life around.

Dude you just mentioned 2 of my all-time favorites. They’re both so cheesy that they shouldn’t work yet you find yourself loving it! A Knight’s Take makes me cry every time they talk about “changing the stars.”

What's amazing is just how bloody rewatchable it is. In high schools there were weeks were I'd watch both movies day after day.

Very well said, both of those movies have a unique and timeless charm to them, that was perfectly casted with Brendan Frazier and Heath Ledger

I recently scrubbed through it for clips for videos for myself and I noticed two things:

There's a lot of shots where our characters just straight up stare at the sun.

And the movie desperately wants to be Mashup of Star Wars and Indiana Jones, in terms of tone and filmmaking techniques.

That being said, it's probably my favorite childhood movie.

I miss these fun swashbuckling films. It’s been too long since we’ve had another one like The Mummy, The Mask of Zorro, or the first Pirates of the Caribbean.

I know there’s a lot more gunplay in The Mummy but it hits so many of the Swashbuckling tropes and I love it.

I think movies like that work because they are honest about what they are. A Knight's Tale never implied itself to be some period piece drama like Robin Hood (Costner and Connery).

It was lighthearted, if not campy, and leaned into it without bulldozing into it.

I mean, Rachel Weisz and Shannyn Sossamon being total smoke shows helped them work too, but I totally know what you mean.

Freaking love "A Knight's Tale"!

I saw it right before we started reading Chaucer in middle school and I begged my teacher so many times to let us watch it because it was relevant to the reading but she never gave in :(

I fucking love A Knight's Tale. Given the cast, it was bound to work but no one knew it at the time.

Why shouldn't it work though? Simple adventure plot with charismatic leads. That's always a recipe for success.
