In retrospect, I can’t believe how many times I actually watched this movie between 1994 and 1996…
It was actually pretty groundbreaking at the time. Saw it in the theater with one girl who was way too squeamish about it, and another who was way too into it… :|
This is a place that you… that you all made together so that you could find one another. The most important part of your life was the time that you spent with these people on that island. That’s why all of you are here. Nobody does it alone, Jack. You needed all of them, and they needed you.
Jack. You care about him?

November 26, 1922: Archaeologists Enter King Tut’s Tomb
On this day in 1922, British archaeologists Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon were the first to enter King Tut’s tomb in Egypt’s Valley of the Kings.
Carter discovered a step leading to a mud-brick door that revealed a passageway to the untouched, four-room tomb for more than 3,000 years. The excavation yielded thousands of cultural objects and the most fascinating was a stone sarcophagus containing three coffins and the mummified body of teenage King Tut.
