General

Learning from Movies: THE MUMMY


In this case, I’m referring to the 1999 Stephen Sommers film, and not the 1932 version with Boris Karloff (which is a far superior film, yes).

Actually, the two stories stick pretty closely to the same material: Explorers disturb the tomb of Imhotep.

The Mummy rises in both films and sees in a female protagonist the reincarnation of his long-lost love.

The rest of the plot follows from his attempts to raise his love’s spirit and be reunited with her.

Lessons and inspiration after the break.

  • If you’re going to kill a guy, kill him. Nothing stays buried forever.
  • True love never dies – no matter how much we might wish that it would.
  • Stand by your friends. Betrayals have a way of haunting you.
  • Librarians are dangerous people.
  • When Ramses destroyed Syria, that was an accident. You are a catastrophe!
  • Sometimes scholars are treasure-hunters
  • All legends have a beginning in fact.
  • The filthy, rude, scoundrel in the jail cell might be a great hero having a bad day. Don’t count him out.

  • Only gamble with your life, never your money.
  • For the record – don’t put me down for mummification.
  • You must not read from the book.
  • It is better to be the right hand of the devil than to be in his path.
  • The line between “stealing” and “borrowing” is narrow, and blurry.
  • Patience isn’t always a virtue.

Death is only the beginning.
