THIS ISLAND EARTH (1955). Many positive things here-camera work , an awesome score, bright Technicolor, really good special effects, a cool Monster and I like Faith Domergue.
Sadly, the story moves at a snail's pace, the Monster is sadly underused and >>>>>>>>>>>>SPOILER>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> > it seems our hero/heroine pack up and leave barely a minute after they reach Metaluna!
Worth seeing once, but won't see it again. ***

Well said, Frye! I only saw This Island Earth once, maybe 20 years ago. Considering how wonderful and mind blowing the spaceship, new planet and alien monster are, it's such a shame the scientists are held up in the little house/lab for the first half to three-quarters of the film.

THE MUMMY'S CURSE (1944). At least Universal came up with names for their sequels, instead of something generic like THE MUMMY 5, which to have been the trend for the past few decades.
Despite a new name and some great scenes (Kharis rising, Virginia Christine doing her makeover-she is very good-, Tanthe Berte knocking dust off Kharis, the tumbling walls), this is stil like many of the numbered sequels-it basically rehashes old ideas, doesn't make much sense and seems thrown together.
Cast is decent; Virginia is very good in parts and I find Kay Harding quite charming. Martin Koslek delivers his usual good performance (and as usual, up to no good!) and I believe Peter Coe is the ONLY High Preist in the series who doesn't throw over the mission for a pretty face!
Have heard Lon JR HATED playing Kharis and You can practically feel it in his performance; he, probably more than the rest of us, was probably just glad it was over! **
