Like to see more about Nick, and what on earth he’s talking about? Check out our full review of “The Mummy”!

The Mummy (2017)

Welcome to Buttered Popcorn! Our first review is for Tom’s latest blockbuster, The Mummy (2017). We had a great time watching this flick in theaters (several times), and we can’t wait to share our true and correct opinions with the world!

Smartass Summary: The OTHER OTHER one with the airplane stunt.

Slightly less smartass summary: A guy gets two girlfriends, but would rather be rich and single.

Ok ok, REAL summary: Bad guy tries to take over the world, unlikely hero saves the world instead.

Overall opinion:
Buttered Popcorn likes this movie a lot!  It has action, humor, seat-jumping “scares”, and it even takes on themes of good and evil, life and death, love and sacrifice.  In fact, there are so many feelings in this movie, we think some people might have a hard time holding them all in at the same time.  But that’s okay!  At Buttered Popcorn, we love complexity, and we aren’t scared to cry and laugh and hide our faces in the same theater session!

Haven’t seen this movie recently? Fix that, STAT! Click the link below for more information.

Now let’s get started!
