The Mummy

mummyWhile waiting twenty years for a fourth Indiana Jones movie to come out, we got to see a far superior movie than Indy 4 would turn out to be: The Mummy (1999). Brendan Fraser is a complete natural at the tough-guy routine, and strikes a great balance with the humor too. I simply love Rachel Weisz. The CGI effects are not great- the technology was suffering from adolescent growing pains in the mid-1990s - but it's not too distracting. I'll give this movie an A.
