Happy Monday!

This past Friday, this blog featured the teaser trailer for the Tom Cruise-led cast of The Mummy.

Today, this blog features the first full length trailer for The Mummy.

Quick question: Is Tom Cruise’s character the mummy…?

That’s just one of the many things we can ponder as we kick-off a new workweek.

Have a Great Week! 

That’s a Wrap (For the Teaser Trailer)

People have an eternal affection for vintage.

Or, in this case, the ancient.

Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella, Russell Crowe and others have joined forces to bring the world the newest cinematic treatment of ancient Egypt and its magical lore. Deftly titled The Mummy, the first-look (not much of an exaggeration) recently hit the internet.

Looks like Mr. Cruise has yet another mission that seems impossible. The Mummy, depending on the full trailer, may be a movie fans will choose to accept.

Some People Never Partied Like It Was 1999

Remarkably similar to fiction…

Watching the Dallas Cowboys take a late fourth quarter lead (8 points, 17-9) in Minnesota against the Vikings instantly made me think of the frustrated home fans. More specifically, the stunned Viking fans instantly made me think of the most famous (albeit pretend) die-hard Vikings fan who was always accustomed to heartbreak as a citizen of Minneapolis.

Some people laugh at characters, situations and goofy storylines in sitcoms as mere foolish fiction with no basis in reality. However, as the clip above proved, TV and film has a strange power of being surprisingly prescient to future events (to varying degrees).

Just ask the Chicago Cubs and the writers of Back to the Future Part II.

Final Score: Dallas Cowboys 17 -15 Minnesota Vikings in Minneapolis.

We’re All McCallisters at the Airport

It doesn’t seem to matter how early we (meaning people in general) arrive at the airport, we always cut it close enough to the point where we just might not make our flight.

Vacations/business trips aren’t just reserved for summer or the holidays anymore. The reason for mentioning this now is that the time right before and between Thanksgiving and Christmas (and New Years) is one of the prime periods of the year when airports are full with travelers making their way to their destinations. It’s a happy sight.

And, yes, there’s also the occasional chaotic scene that rushes through the terminal faster than a speeding train. If you find yourself at an airport in the near future and you need to hustle to catch your flight, just remember to run to Chuck Berry’s, “Run Run Rudolph.”

It helps.

We’ve all been there.
