Dear Friends & Families,
Wednesday, I went to GSC Cinema at IOI Mall Puchong with my lovely girl girl to catch a movie. We’ve not watch any movies in cinema for quite a while. I’m not sure my last movie was.. Oh ya! Wanted. The show, Haih… regretted. Not up to my expectations. It was a long queue at the counter and I forgotten that every Wednesday GSC is giving out discount for movie tickets. Most of the show was fully booked or sold, we even heard one of the people working inside GSC came out and informed us that most of the show has sold out. I was.. WHAT! I’ve been standing there queuing up to wait for my turn. Against all odds I still queue up till I my turn and ask the cashier.. “The Mummy, 9:15pm, got ah?” The cashier didn’t reply me anything but press press and click click then show me the screen which seats are available.
When I saw the monitor screen, I was thinking “oh Shzsad!” it was three row infront of the screen. Well never mind it and I bought the tickets. The cashier was blur or in his world day dreaming. I look at him and say “the mummy, 2 people” and he reply me “12 ringgits”.. I waited for him to print the tickets and he wait for me to pay him. We were staring for almost 5 minutes plus. Then I pass him the money only he print the tickets.. GoDaeraf U! Took the tickets and waited at the entrance with my girl girl.. lets’ skip the waiting part and move to the movie. When I checked properly the tickets for our seats, I only knew that very moment our seats is at the back third row. Oh dear! What a shame. My girl was laughing at me. blek! Okay okay.. Talk about the movie.. The Mummy: Tomb of The Dragon. This installment of the mummy franchise is the third movie. We can even call it as The Mummy 3 to simplify it. The Mummy franchise has interlinked to each other, although the third one you can watch it if you missed the previous two. The first was called “The Mummy” it was at 1999, then the sequel called “The Mummy Returns” it was at 2001 and now after seven years from the previous one, Rob Cohen brings you “The Mummy: Tomb of The Dragon” 2008.
The show starts off with narration from Michelle Yeoh as the sorceress telling us that during the ancient China, war is every where and one of the king want rule the whole China with his sword and called him as the first Emperor(jet li). The Emperor will use his prison of wars and mens to build the Great Wall Of China. Those who oppose him will die and buried below the Great Wall. When the Emperor has defeated all his enemy but only left one which is his biggest and fear enemy, DEATH!. He send his Jeneral to search for a potion or way to let him stay alive eternity. The Jeneral when up to a mountain and search for a sorceress(Michelle Yeoh) and brought her to the Emperor. She don’t has the potion or way to give the Emperor eternity life but she know there is a way and it is written down a bamboo book and it is kept is some sort of library. Before, the Emperor send her off with his Jeneral he tell his Jeneral that he will make the sorceress as his queen and no man should come near to her or touch her. While journey looking for the book and coming back to castle romance sparks flew between the Jeneral and the sorceress. When she return to the Emperor with book and she will give the Emperor eternity life but with a promise from the Emperor that she and the Jeneral will get marry. The Emperor agrees to it and the sorceress read the spell in sansskrit and the Emperor feels that he has eternity life. He brought her to a balcony at below she saw the Jeneral was all tied up with chains all on his hands and legs even his neck. The Emperor said if the sorceress became her queen and he will free him but she resist and she saw her lover tore into pieces. Then the Emperor use a dagger and stab the sorceress. Don’t know why suddenly the Emperor feels uneasy and suddenly mud coming out as tears from his eyes and vomit mud and suddenly the Emperor become stone or Terracotta and all his soldiers.
Move on, and it show Brendan Fraser as Rick fishing at the nearby river. He tries hard to fish but end up not fishing but.. shooting fish with his gun. Can’t remember so much about the previous movie but in this part 3 it shows that Rick is rich staying in a big mansion with his lovely wife and butler. Not to mention his is retired from tomb digging or exploring. His wife Evelyn is book writer, where she starts off reading a book to a group of ladies. The book is about Mummies.. both of them try to cope with their retirement life but turn out the other way around. Then move to China.. their only son now is all grown up just like his dad that likes to dig tombs. He found an entry to Emperor’s Tomb and he went with his professor. Inside the tomb there are many booby traps and a few men die except the professor and Rick’s boy Alex. Alex found the the case that carry the Emperor’s body, he was so happy until he unnoticed a female assassin behind him. Then it is fight fight.. then the assassin run away.. Alex brought back the Emperor’s body back to the museum. Back to Rick and his wife, the British government want them to return the EYE to China for a good cause. The eye contains a diamond and water that bring the death to life. Then they went to Shanghai to meet up Evelyn’s brother who open up a club and from their we knew that Alex drop out from college and have a fight with Mad Dog who can land an airplane at anywhere.
