The Mummy Returns

Factual error: When Brendan Fraser & his son are running to reach the pyramid before the sun hits it, the sunrise line approaches the pyramid along the ground, but the sun would naturally have hit the pyramid at the top first and worked its way down to the ground. [Some people insist on trying to correct this - think of it this way. If the sun's illuminating the ground from way up in the sky, what's keeping something higher up than the ground in darkness?]

Continuity mistake: In the British Museum, when Rick and Ardeth are saving Evie, Rick gives her a .45 pistol and they start to shoot the guards, her pistol fires once and the slide locks back meaning the pistol had no ammo, but she keeps firing as if the magazine was still full.

Continuity mistake: When Rick is trapped in the bathroom, he finds John underwater in a bathtub full of suds. As John climbs out of the tub, his body naturally is covered in suds. However, when he and Rick jump out the window and start running away, John's body is completely suds-free.

Trivia: When the pygmies fall into the river after they blow up the bridge, look closely. As the right hand end falls into the ravine, one end is glowing from the blast, and one of the pygmies climbs on top of it and rides it down, hand waving, exactly like the scene from "Dr. Strangelove, or How I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb". Must be deliberate, and definitely worth a look.

Rick O'Connell: Knowing my brother in law, he probably deserves whatever you're about to do to him. But this is my house, and I have certain rules about snakes and dismemberment.

Question: After Alex translates the hieroglyphs as "This way to Scorpion King," Jonathan quietly responds by saying "It's just my work." What exactly did he mean by that? He's not a translator of ancient Egyptian like his sister Evie, so I don't think he literally meant "work" as his profession.

Serious B

Chosen answer: He says, "this just might work" meaning he and Alex trying to bring Evie back using the book of the dead.

Question: I heard that Max Cavallera from Sepultura provided all the yells and the shouting for the rock. Is this true?

Chosen answer: Yes. According to IMDB 'Max Cavalera' was the voice of The Scorpion King, who was played by The Rock.

Question: What kind of clothing is that being worn by the character Lock-Nah, the "enforcer" of Imhotep's cult and (apparently) Ardeth Bay's nemesis? He's obviously supposed to be African, but is that a specific type of garb or did they just make up an African-themed wardrobe for the movie? And does anybody know:A) What kind of sword it is that he always carries and fights with?B) What is that big dagger(?) he throws at Ardeth in the O'Conells' mansion? C) At the Oasis of Ahm Shere, what language is Lock-Nah speaking when he shouts for the soldiers to "Fan out! Eyes open! Guns up!" when thunder starts rumbling?

Chosen answer: A) It seems to be some kind of Shamshir or Talwar. B) It is a kind of African throwing knife, there are different names as they tend to be very different in shape.
