I liked Hammers 1959 film The Mummy. Story, acting ,production, this is a first rate film and , Christoper Lee and Peter Cushing are both at their best in this film. :cool:

The Mummy (2017) which starred Tom Cruise was better than most reviewers said. It had some good action and while it wasn't perfect I'd watch it again some time.

Ive seen it few time since , Id give it about B+. It was interesting seeing Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe in a film together in. Sofia Boutella as the Mummy was quite good.

Plughead Rewired (1994) For some reason matter transporting vehicles* need acres of ducting hose -not sure if the film was a tongue in cheek comedy but it came across as very funny; watched it years ago and would do it again.

*a whadyamacall it truck that lets you drive to anywhere in the world in an instant.

I absolutely LOVED Buckaroo Banzai...they enjoyed poking fun at themselves while making that and it is just general goofy fun.

It should have been start of a major film franchise.

I love Plughead Rewired! Watching Vernon Wells chewing the scenery "Welcome to my MIND!" is always fun. The first one is pretty good too.

The Deadly Mantis 1957 Yes, the mantis looked good but whole premise of this film is downright silly. :DOverall, this a pretty bad film.:)

One of those its so bad its good.
Saw Journey To The Center Of The Earth from 1989 the other day. I liked it because it was extremely cluttered, crazily edited, and any plot line that started never got ended. You can miss the events leading up to the ending of the movie as it is presented as a series very short snippets. Almost like someone fast forwarded the ending, occasionally slowing down to regular speed, with fast forwarded parts cut out. This movie has the distinction of being 2 movies tacked together. The first movie, 8 minutes long was made by the original director. The rest of the movie was directed by a second director, Albert Pyun, which he made into a sequel to Alien From L.A., a movie he made the previous year.

There a number difference versions Journey to the Center the Earth films . There is 1993 version which has more in common wit At The Earth's Core by Edgar Rice Burroughs then it does Jues Verne novels . It was Syfy movie , It's pretty forgettable .

I've not seen the JTTCOFT (2008) movie, but its sequel Journey 2: The Mysterious Island starring Dwayne Johnson and Michael Caine is a really fun movie.

The only one I remember as a kid was the James Mason version, which was pretty good. The Rick Wakeman musical version is pretty neat also.

The film I remember , they had machine which could travel though the earth crust, They encounter the abominable Snowman who's a very being , had bee cast out his community by his own kind for helping a human child. They teaching for the man who invented the prototype each travel machine , , It was one man expedidtionalry force, by one explorer scientist played by F Murray Abraham , I think .

I remember spending most of my time with that one being fascinated by Vanessa Hudgens' rather nice bottom. (I obviously wasn't alone in my fascination, because the director and the cameraman went to a lot of effort to make sure it got more than its fair share of screen time.)
