Jonah Hex

You may find it hard to believe nowadays, but there was a time when superhero movies weren't particularly highly regarded. They were seen as nothing but cheap kids movies with no real weight behind them.
Then DC and Warner Bros started up the Dark Knight trilogy. It was darker, edgier and really shouldn't have been shown to children.
So DC thought "Why not try this with other characters?".
Well, we all know why, but BvS will have to wait.
Because right now, we've got Jonah Hex to get through.
Where is he aiming that Gatling?

The Mummy

Whatever happened to Brendan Fraser? His career started out so well, but then he just seemed to vanish. Which is a shame, because he was just so cool.
Speaking of his early career, today's movie is the 1999 classic, The Mummy.
Not to be confused with the god of the Jews.
I feel that I should warn that this movie has some pretty gruesome death scenes, but since they're portrayed via 1999 CGI the shock value's countered by the narm.
