Universal loves their monster movies, but they don't always know what to do with them. So it was a pleasant surprise when their big budget 1999 reboot of "The Mummy" was such an enormous hit that it spawned a sprawling fantasy-adventure franchise that, whether you realize it or not, is still going strong today! We're reviewing all the "Mummy" movies on this week's CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED, and every single film in the lesser known but long-running "Scorpion King" spinoff franchise!
Also this week, film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold talk about all the Oscar nominations, and review the new releases "The Kid Who Would Be King," "Memory: The Origins of Alien," and the utterly BIZARRE new thriller "Serenity," which has to be seen to be believed!
