If, like me, you have a hankerin' for some adventurin' this weekend, and want to see "The Mummy: Curse of the Dragon Emperor," you should be aware of the following information.
"TM:COTDE" (now there's an unwieldly acronym) is not directed by Stephen Sommers, who, after giving us the highly entertaining "The Mummy" and "The Mummy Returns," almost killed his career with the cinematic atrocity known as "Van Helsing."* No, this third installment in the Brendan Fraser "Indy"-wannabe series is directed by a Mr. Rob Cohen.
What happened to the Looney Tunes?
When I woke up this morning, one of the 73 HBO channels I get was showing 2003's "Looney Tunes: Back in Action," a quasi-sequel to "Space Jam" that I'm guessing you either forgot existed, or never knew existed at all. As I watched some of it, I realized that I could not remember the last time I saw a Looney Tunes cartoon on television.
