Neil Gaiman waited several DECADES for the proper medium, technology and creative control to make a live action adaptation of the Sandman series. In that time he worked on other adaptations to learn what he needed to.
And the result is freakin' brilliant on all levels.

For anyone who thought the whole idea of a slow moving killer going from movie to movie following one story line and killing those who survived the previous film started with Eighties slasher stories...
Nope, Kharis and friends did it back in the Forties.
Granted all four of these movies are only an hour long. That likely means, if you took out the recaps, it's just about enough material for two films today. Still I feel I was harsh at first stating the Mummy sequels really dropped in quality. These are all fun, and the continuing storyline through four films is impressive.

and even weller after the days I watched wrestling in my youth.
Therefore it shouldn't count as part of this list.
But it will, for "reasons."
I caught it on an "Undertaker's Greatest Matches" show before all the wrestling stuff vanished off of Netflix when the WWE (and everyone else in the world) made their own streaming service.

It should be clear at this point that I am, and ever have been, an old softie. Three of these moments are finishes that looked like they would create or amplify feuds, but instead led to reconciliations.
I love a happy ending.

We almost went out of order here in this three movie year, because Rosa wanted to know how the heck the Mummy returned again.
Boris Karloff is back! This time he's a human "monster," the mad scientist Doctor Neimann
And he is awesome and terrifying without any Jack Peirce masterpiece glued to cover his whole face.

Hey, remember back in the index when I said I didn't know which two moments would be replaced by ones I'd talked about before?
I lied, it's this one and the next one.
