MOSTLY FILM: The Mummies Return

There's a message for all of us there, I think.M is for the Mostly Pop it gave us
O because it's nearly four years Old
S is for the Subtitles we crave less
T for all the Television gold
L is for the Love we showed on Sunday
Y? Because we're celebrating mum
Put them all together, they spell MOSTLY
So stick your Film Divider up your bum

It was Mother's Day yesterday, and Europe's Best Website celebrated with The Mummies Return, in which a bunch of us wrote about our favourite depictions of mothers in the movies. Quite a few old favourites appear in the list - my choice is probably the most obscure of the seven, I guess. It's a fun diverse read, and well worth a look even though the occasion itself is now behind us.

I'm not digging too hard for Red Button Bonus Material, as the majority of the words in the piece aren't mine: so have a few trailers, why don't you?

In the order they appear in the original article:


  1. Mommie Dearest
  2. Pride And Prejudice
  3. Carrie
  4. The Aristocats (representing Disney Mothers)
  5. E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial
  6. Fong Sai-yuk
  7. Mildred Pierce
