We here at The Mary Sue don't exactly hide our love for the Brendan Fraser
era of the The Mummy
. After all, Evie Carnahan is one of our favorite Action Librarians. They're action/horror movies that didn't really seem to be made for any reason other than to show the audience a good time, and if they had some outdated tropes and clichés in them, at least it seemed like it was part of a conscious attempt to make a comedy that referenced another era of adventure film, not an unconscious one.
Which is why we're a little sad to hear that that Len Wiseman
, the guy behind Underworld,
is Universal's choice to make their Hammer Horror monster into a brand new franchise. See Rachel Weisz face up there, Universal? That's the face we're making.
