    It's a mystery how The Mummy has made it to the third round.

    Its just a very fun blockbuster bolstered by set pieces in exotic locations. I can think of much less deserving movies in the knockout rounds.

    I can't express how bored I was with The Fifth Element. There was one good thing about it, though - that flying Chinese food joint (visualization of my dream of what I want to be in a future life: flying between the houses, cooking and selling food), but it is not enough to justify the whole film

    Ask not what bears can do for you, but what you can do for bears. (razz)
    When one is in agreement with bears one is always correct. (mae)

    bears are back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Wow. Fifth Element is a personal favorite of mine and I nominated it. I know it is not a great movie but I thought it was at least fun throughout. I can't imagine it being labeled boring.

    Yeah, there's a lot of things a person can call The Fifth Element, but I didn't think boring was one.

    guys, you know, bears have their own specific ursine notion of what is or isn't boring, it is often different from human

    Ask not what bears can do for you, but what you can do for bears. (razz)
    When one is in agreement with bears one is always correct. (mae)

    bears are back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
