MTS Movie Night #2

Hello, MTSers! Grab your miniature tombs, your embalming kit (please dont actually use it!), make a bucket of popcorn, and join us for our second MTS Movie Night!

Next weekend we're hosting a live movie watching party in our Discord text chat server. We're hoping this will be a great chance for everyone to meet new people, get to know our chat system (if it's your first time), and also watch some really fun movies. After much discussion among the staff, we've decided on an ancient Egypt double feature.

The movies

The Mummy (1999)
Archaeology! Sand! Ancient starships buried in the sand! Wait, wrong game.... Ancient cities, buried in the sand! Camel races! Rachel Weiss! More sand! Set in Egypt this "ripping yarn" adventure follows Rick O'Connell and Evelyn Carnahan as they battle more sand! a rival gang of archaeologists, knock over some bookshelves, and uncover a threat far more terrifying than sorting artifacts or getting drunk in jail!

The Mummy Returns (2001)
So, wait, they killed him right? Ahaha no, you might *think* that but.... he's baack! And he's all out of ancient egyptian bubblegum, so now he's here to kick some ass. We witness the return of Rick and Evelyn, and their 8 year old son Alex, as they battle not just Imhotep, but the Scorpion King too. Join us for the epic conclusion to the Mummy series!

Where & When

Saturday, August 19th
The Mummy 115 minutes long - 5 PM UTC / 7 PM CEST / 1 PM EDT | Time Zone Converter
The Mummy Returns 130 minutes long - 11 PM UTC / 12 AM CEST 1 AM CEST (August 20th) / 7 PM EDT (August 19th) | Time Zone Converter

The chatting will take place in our Discord server, which you can join here. On the day of the watch party we will create a "Movie Night" channel dedicated to this event, so make sure to choose it from the Text Channel options.

How it works

First thing's first: Everyone needs to find their own copy of the movies. Due to legal reasons, we cannot offer to stream the movies. These movies are not available on Netflix so you'll have to track down a DVD or dig in your library for them.

We'll be getting everyone synced up by doing a text countdown in chat. For this reason, please show up at least a few minutes early, to ensure we all start at the same time. If you arrive after we've started, you'll have to figure out the sync for yourself.

Wait, this isn't the 2017 one right?

You mean the one with Tom Cruise? No. That one doesn't exist. Nor does the 3rd one. Because reasons. There is only *2* Mummy movies, ok?!

I didn't even realise that there was a 2017 that you've mentioned it, I don't think that I wanted to 🤣

I should be there for at least one of them.

Ooh I've never seen the Mummy movies so this will be interesting!

lespaulbaby 11th Aug 2017 1:21 PM

What an adorable idea!

icemunmun 11th Aug 2017 10:16 PM

yay! I am going to see The Mummy for the 101 th time (and be very happy about it too)

Vixie92 12th Aug 2017 3:05 AM

Have all 3 (I only have "The Scorpion King" because it's a collector set and I'm not bothering with the remake). I can't join for "The Mummy" because I'll be working.

I work Saturdays and won't be home in time to participate. Otherwise I would. I love these movies! Maybe I'll just watch them on my own.

cherry4567 13th Aug 2017 6:52 AM

This time I can watch one of em but I don't think that I could stay awake till 6 am for the other
The good thing is that I've never seen any of these movies haha:D

Well there is the 2008 movie -- The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (which stars the same Rick O'Connell/Brendan Fraser)
So I guess you can say that there is *3* Mummy movies...

porkypine 18th Aug 2017 9:11 PM

lol... Well, I saw this too late to order the movie. I might peek in for the chaos anyway, if I am online.

Thanks everyone who joined for The Mummy! Just posting a quick update, the time zone conversion for CEST went a bit awry in the first post. The Mummy Returns starts at 1 AM CEST. Hope to see some of you there!

What about some person from these movies? In Sims 2)))

DastenHero 20th Aug 2017 8:23 PM

I own both on VHS XD Love the Mummy movies! To bad I missed it!

Aw, man! I wish I saw this message sooner. My sister and I were just talking about this movie! Unfortunately I was in another state visiting family who don't have Wifi. That would have been super fun! Netflix doesn't have it? They should definitely get on that. Hopefully there will be another Movie Night where I can join in. Or some other event.

GrijzePilion 22nd Aug 2017 12:52 AM

Will definitely participate in one of these when there's movies I like.

billielith 29th Aug 2017 11:29 AM

I missed this. Seems fun, I'll try to catch the next one.

James_Lionheart 30th Aug 2017 11:26 AM

We don't talk about the 2008 one or the 2017 one.
Those two never existed and if we are forced to believe they to exist, just think of it being on different universe.

That usually helps
