The Mummy Returns (BLU-RAY)

The Mummy Returns

On Blu-Ray: 
Tuesday, July 22, 2008

The first movie was a remake of a movie and kept no similar elements aside from the title.  So, there is no way a sequel can be good, right?  Surprisingly, wrong.  The Mummy Returns is arguably better than the original while retaining the Indiana Jones-style magic.

The picture quality on this one is lightyears better than The Mummy and actually stands up to any of its peers.  The sound is just as good as the first, rattling even the best sound system.

Commentary, Featurettes, Outtakes, Music Video (on BD Live)

This is the way blu-ray should be.  Although the bonus features still look pretty bad, the movie itself is incredible.  The outtakes are actually pretty funny (not just fart noises and actors making faces).  A great movie, a great transfer and an overall great release.
