Watch Edge of Tomorrow. He dies dozens of times.
From what I understand, the marketing team regretted not emphasizing that more in the first run, so they made sure people knew that for the DVD and on demand sales.

The Mummy movie does look dumb as fuck.

Is Dracula going to blow up the world in the next one? I'll rewatch Life Force, which is delightfully bonkers, and features Captain Picard and Steve Railsback making out, for all your weirdly specific slash fic needs. And the nudest woman in history.

Or, take the angle that since the novel has Dracula buying a house, we find that Dracula caused the MBS crisis! Kind of a mashup of the Wolf of Wall Street and Dracula!

Vampire on Wall Street.

In the sequel, he tries to take over hipsters in Brooklyn, so that's "A Vampire in Brooklyn," which is followed up by him trying to take over the entertainment business, "A Vampire in Burbank."

Why keep making Alien movies if you have nothing new to say?

Because people keep watching them. Also nostalgia is a serious drug for some.

Took daughter to Lego Batman. It started strong and ended well enough but I was dozing off in the middle act (it turns out that really, really long battle scenes with animated Lego characters is even more boring than similar live action scenes) and I was frankly annoyed by the whole Afternoon Special theme of the thing.

It could go either way. Stylized action movies like that have to thread a needle to go from ridiculous to sublime, and most of them fail (eg Taken and John Wick). But with the costumes and lesbianity its likely to develop a cult following. I like the supporting cast.

John Wick was a fail? It was not a fail. Jack reacher was a fail.
