Thursday Movie Picks: A Dig (Archeology/Paleontology)

Hey, guys!
Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks.
It’s a series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme.
Today we’re tackling some films about archeology/paleontology!

#1 The Mummy

This is one of my all-time favorites. The Mummy is such a fun, action-packed film and Rachel Weisz is absolutely impeccable in it.

#2 Raiders of the Lost Ark

I expect this one to pop up a lot this week – it’s the ultimate classic movie about digging up old artifacts!

#3 The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec

This, on the other hand, is probably a lot less known. I actually stumbled upon this by chance when it aired on TV a couple of years ago. It reminds me a lot of The Mummy – definitely similar vibes!

  1. I love The Mummy! It’s such a great adventure yarn plus the 2 leads have great chemistry and who doesn’t love John Hannah. I love the Arabian man…hubba hubba. I found out he could not ride a horse and was scared of them. N the scene when he is knocked off his horse and gets back on…there is a quick cut because he couldn’t so the cut that quick part and just show him back on the horse because he had to be helped onto it.

    Raiders would be a perfect choice but I am just not into them even though I have seen all 4. My fav is the 3rd one with Sean Connery but the last one was atrocious with Cate Blanchett portraying Natasha from the Rocky & Bullwinkle Show.

    I have not seen the last one but it looks like fun.
