Movie Diary 6/6/2017

The Mummy (Alex Kurtzman, 2017). A little too much on the table here, I think: It’s a big piece of a new Dark Universe of monster movies, it’s a Tom Cruise summer movie, it’s a callback to an old classic. One misses Karloff. Also, the early deployment of jokes is welcome; later, it would be nice if things got serious. (full review 6/9)
