Noted anthropologist returns to combat warrior-king

I get it at dinner parties, at the grocery store, and sometimes even in tollbooths: "What's your favorite Brendan Fraser movie?" If you're like me, you're probably sick of it by now. Let's see, there was Blast from the past and Dudley D0-Right (so funny!), or the vastly underrated With Honors with Joe Pesci (check-plus-plus!). There's just so many to choose from. It's like asking me to pick my favorite type of eggplant or list my top-five Nashville-area polka artists. But finally, it looks like there's an answer we can all agree on.After all these years, Fraser still has fewer academy awards (zero) than he does facial expressions (two). I'm no movie critic, but I can't imagine the Oscar committee will continue to snub Fraser after The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor comes out this August.
