This week, we flashback to 1999 to discuss Lauren’s pick, The Mummy! This swashbuckler was one of the first blockbusters to really try to embrace a ton of CGI, but we don’t hold that against it. In fact, most of the podcast is filled with praise, as Ben and Lauren take a trip down nostalgia road. Zac can’t really join them though, but he does nod along when warranted and defends some of his favorite adventure films that nobody else loves.
