    Hey I saw Jupiter Rising in theaters! It was gorgeous but the plot was very meh. A lot of these new IPs keep doing that. Looks amazing, trash plot.

    I hope this idea dies a death because The Mummy was an atrocity.

    Yes, I've felt like this for years. Around the time Iron Man 3 came out iirc. I pretty much ignore them at this point, like if I see a preview or poster for a superhero movie my brain kind of just shuts off and doesn't even attempt to process it.

    But I have friends who are still not tired of them so it's good they're enjoying it. It's not like I think these movies are taking up slots that superior movies could fill so I'm pretty indifferent by now; if their overall presence bring happiness to large amounts of people then keep it going. I think the last superhero movie I saw was the original Guardians of the Galaxy, which was good.

    I just can't bring myself to watch any of the new Universal monster movies. I'll probably always prefer the old monster universe.

    I guess I just love Brenden Fraser's movie and that's set in my head as the mummy canon that I just had no desire to reboot that.

    Agreed. At least on the first two. The third one was pretty bad, though. Again with unnecessary the universe building on that one.
