Ouch! Who would have thought that The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor would get downright embalmed by critics? And will the scribes vote fresh or rotten for Kevin Costner’s goofy charm in Swing Vote? Find out all this and more, and recap our costumed exploits at last weekend’s Comic-Con, in this week’s Review Revue!

Well, it looks like another big weekend for The Dark Knight. Unless, that is, if Brendan Fraser has anything to say about it! Fraser faces off against the undead for another sequel in the popular Mummy franchise, but judging from its early Tomatometer he should have joined Mummy and Mummy Returns co-star Rachel Weisz and conscientiously objected to a third adventure.

Meanwhile, Kevin Costner goes for simple, all-American laziness as the nation’s most ill-prepared voter in Swing Vote. Released curiously during a lull between Obamamania and the November elections, can Swing Vote turn rampant voter apathy into widespread ticket-buyer enthusiasm?

Check back with us next week as we talk about the long-awaited sequel, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 (will they still fit?) and Judd Apatow‘s fifth movie of 2008, David Gordon Green‘s Pineapple Express.
