    Well, I suppose the princess was angry and vengeful because she was the apple of the eye of the reign and then she was replaced by a baby just because the baby had a penis, so she saw herself as scorned and betrayed by her family and people. I suppose she never was meant to be reasonable. Sure, according egyptian rules, she eventually should have married her brother and she would become the queen anyway, but...

    Why must the god of death always be the bad guy? Historically, most religions see the god of death as being something of necessity, a lot more nuanced. The closest thing we have to a nuanced god villain in modern storytelling is Loki, the trickster god, because he's not purely evil, just has fun to other's expense.

    This movie completely wasted the character of Dr Jekyll. He's practically just thrown in and just your typical exposition character, his entire personality is dull, which includes Hyde! Like, the transition from Jekyll to Hyde was always a major thing! Showing the battle between good and evil, the drastic difference the 2 both physically and mentally, but in this movie, the transition is just a little bit more crazy and twitchy? Are you kidding me? This character is a famous piece of literature. Jekyll in here is boring, hell, if you replaced that him with some random scientist character, there would practically be NO difference. They could have at least tried to make the character/s slightly updated, or at least as interesting as what they were supposed to be, HE IS A SCIENTIST WHO LITERALLY CHANGES INTO ANOTHER MONSTER, SOUND FAMILIAR? It seems that this character has as much luck as his green counterpart, hopefully one day he will get a chance to be better like the one we have now. At least. Just gotta hope...

    God did they botch this one up! I literally watched The Mummy (1932) just a couple days ago and even I get it more than whoever did this mess! The mummy is no longer interesting, she's just another generic power hungry dick-waffle. The reason why we love the OG mummy is because he's both evil and TRAGIC. A lot of the original Universal Monster Movies played with the idea of tragedy. The Wolf Man showed the tragedy of being accused of a crime you never committed. Frankenstein showed the tragedy of being rejected, abused, and neglected. Do I even need to mention Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde? When you take away such an important part of the Mummy's character ( being his love for Ank-Es-En-Amon), it gives him no real motivation. No motivation = *BORING*. I think it would've worked better if they just did a bit of a gender swap of the original. Maybe add some elements from the Frasier version, too? An immortal princess/noble is searching for her lost love, because she knows he's reincarnated in some way shape or form. Her search ends when a young American man and his researcher father come to Egypt to try and find the lost tomb of an Egyptian prince/noble. She gladly helps them, even guiding them to her lover's tomb, but only because she knows her REAL (reincarnated) lover is standing right in front of her. The young man (Good ol' Timmy Vacation-Home) is a bit of a smartmouth, a city slicker, and a slight goof. Not that he's stupid, he's just not as into "Ancient dead person research" as his dad is. While the straight-faced, proper speaking, almost monotone woman is clearly the opposite ( giving them that "opposites attract" type appeal). The woman's design is also a key factor in this. Make her wear a red head scarf (feel free to give me the proper name of that 😊), the type most women wear in that area. And her the rest of her clothes that cover her body entirely, only showing her hands. Make the design slightly bland and maybe even a little dated when compared to modern Egyptian fashion for women. Giving off the impression that she's not from this time. At first glance, her facial features seem beautiful ( even *ROYAL*), but when one really starts to get a close look at them, they can get a little creeped out. Certain areas of the skin appear pale or ashy, her eyes have dark bags under them, and she just has the CREEPIEST death stare. Which can even turn our bravest of people into blubbering idiots. This adds to the mystery of whether or not she's the mummy ( we the audience know that perfectly well, but not our characters 😉). When a string of deaths begin to happen and people start to suspect her, Research-Dad and Johnny Yacht blow it off. I mean after all, how could such a tiny and... erm... "pretty" thing kill a bunch of people? A few of them being much larger and seemingly stronger than her? Why, she would have to use magic to do that! And that's just plain silly! ... Right? Right? Sorry for writing an entire essay. 😶 I just really love the 32' version of The Mummy, and I hate to see good ideas wasted. I also just *REALLY* want to draw my idea for Fem-Mummy/Ardath. If I do, I'll make sure to link it. 😊
