Slap tits on the mummy this time, that'll sell!

To be fair, Sofia Boutella was not the problem with that movie.

No, but the concept thinking that casting the Mummy as a woman embodied the problem. If you write a story where arguably the woman turned into a supernaturally powerful mummy is semi-sympathetic conceptually, make the fucking movie around that. Shit, even the Brendan Fraser version got that. The old Universal films definitely got that--the monster had to be at least somewhat sympathetic. But you have to really get that idea at some deeper level than a script pitch to a bunch of coked-up fuckfaces sitting around in a Burbank office.

They made her the mummy and then had a white male yank her power away and become a scientologist god.

The movie was shit.

It wasn't even the fucking Mummy.

As a less depressing version of "XY died" I propose "What, XY is still around?"

Michael Keaton is going to ruin his comeback if he keeps picking stinkers like American Assassin. None of the charm of Bond. None of the action of Bourne. None of the fun of Kingsman. 

The women in the movie existed solely as props, yes, even the CIA handler and field agent. They were token and the "I understand you" scene was cringey even though it had a reason.

The plot was as thin as a UK shopping bag and the 'twists' were more predictable than a conservative's response to gay neighbors.

In all, I'm glad I only used movie pass for it. I kept waiting for some real action or drama and it just never came. Keaton nailed his performance and character, but the kid was wooden and I never bought him as the badass or rule-breaker he was supposed to be other than because of the events on screen.

There's a trailer out for Annihilation. I won't grace it with a thread yet. It looks boring and confusing , just like the book. Or am I not cool enough to get it?

I found that book immensely crappy.

I wanted to like it--I get that it was going for a Lovecraftian feeling where nothing could be too directly seen or described--but yeah, in the end, it just felt flat and uninvolving to me. I could not really care about the main character.

Me too.  The film is going to bomb hard though.  There's no way it'll do the pointless nature of the books any justice if it tries and if it doesn't, I don't see the point.

Yes, I see the multiple irony and pun-itude in what I wrote.  I stand by it.
