On this installment of the Big Picture Podcast, FilmBuffOnline Editor-in-Chief Rich Drees and FilmBuffOnline Contributing Editor Natasha Bogutzki travel back to ancient Egypt, or at least twenty years ago to the summer movie season of 2001 for a Retro Review of The Mummy Returns and take a deep dive into the comparative use of practical and computer-generated effects between the sequel and it’s progenitor, capturing lightening in a bottle twice and what it would take to revive some of the classic Universal Studio monsters today. (Hint – It is not a Dark Universe.)
