“The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor,” more commonly known as “Mummy 3” is a Chinese translation of its two Egyptian predecessors. Although the Dragon Emperor played by Jet Li isn’t really a mummy but a burning amalgam of flesh and metal, the movie is so packed with non-stop action, frenetic photography and exotic locales that it hardly matters. Retired adventurers Rick and Evie O’Connell (the ever-excellent Brendan Fraser and a woefully miscast Maria Bello)

If you ever thought gym class and cafeteria food was bad, you haven't been on "Fear Factor Live." Based on "Fear Factor," an NBC reality series, this new show at Universal Studios Hollywood will leave your skin crawling and your stomach in knots. The show is comprised of three stunts that must be performed to show that "fear is not a factor for you." Park guests can sign up to take on challenges onstage in front of a live audience. The challenges test you physically and mentally, ranging from hanging from a bar high above the stage, turning turbines to build up electricity that is then shot into your hands, or being handcuffed to a cylinder which you must spin to undo, then retrieve flags from a tank of carnivorous eels, then take the flag and hang it on a hook on a bar in the middle of a rotating platform with obstacles to knock you off, then undo your gear and chug a smoothie of bugs, decaying fish, mystery meat, and sour milk.

Last week, National Geographic aired a documentary that explored a controversy that has been brewing for many years: Has Nefertiti's mummy been found? For Dr. Susan James, author and La Cañada resident, this mystery has been part of her life since she wrote her first article about the issue in 2001. "The program was an investigation of two female mummies that were transferred from a tomb," James said. The show, "Nefertiti and The Lost Dynasty," examined two mummies archeologists call the Elder Lady and the Younger Lady.

The morning of Nov. 4, 1922, a boy was bringing water for Carter's workers. He dug away sand to set the containers down when his hand found stone. Digging a little more, he found a step. He alerted Carter who had his men dig away the sand to reveal a 18th dynasty stairway. At the bottom of the stairs, there was a doorway covered with stones and plaster. Legend holds that Carter went back to his tent and saw his "good luck" canary being eaten by a cobra - the curse of the mummy.

Hollywood horror is waiting for you every Friday and Saturday night through Halloween, Oct. 31, at Universal Studios. For thrill-seeking horror buffs, Universal has been turned into a network of scare zones and fright mazes linked together by the terror tram which allows visitors to personalize their itinerary of fear. Three special mazes have been constructed, each featuring the star of a particular horror series — Freddy Krueger of “A Nightmare on Elm Street,” Jason of “Friday the 13th” and the cannibal crunching stylings of the Hewitt family of “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” fame — just the thing for those tedious Friday nights.

While movie-making is done "on location" more than ever before, the Los Angeles area still is home to a steady stream of movie and television productions — so many that it's not unusual to come across filming on any given trip to L.A. And out-of-towners never seem to get tired of visiting movie studios and famous movie-making locations. Today most of the studios are closed to the public except when audiences are needed for live shows or when the call goes out for extras to populate various movie scenes.
