    Are You My MUMMY?

    Are You My MUMMY?

    On this installment of the Big Picture Podcast, FilmBuffOnline Editor-in-Chief Rich Drees and FilmBuffOnline Contributing Editor Natasha Bogutzki travel back to ancient Egypt, or at least twenty years ago to the summer movie season of 2001 for a Retro Review of The Mummy Returns and take a deep dive into the comparative use of practical and computer-generated effects between the sequel and it’s progenitor, capturing lightening in a bottle twice and what it would take to revive some of the classic Universal Studio monsters today. (Hint – It is not a Dark Universe.)

Great podcast

I just listen to episode 1 I absolutely love this podcast. You guys sound so natural and easy. The conversation is great. But you guys have to take it easy on my Tron legacy.

Whiny

Just listened to the Oscar show. Really whiny and uninteresting. Consistently negative, but added no nuance or interesting discussion. At one point, Amanda says she did not like Jennifer Hudson’s performance because ‘she had never heard the song before’. What? How close-minded are you?

Self indulgence of a film buff

I find host Rich Drees to be very condescending to his female co-host Natasha Bogutzki. He regularly mansplains and acts as if no one has more film knowledge than him. Much of the podcast consists of playing movie trailers at a low volume. Yep, movie trailers. On a podcast. It’s as riveting as it sounds.
