Because no one wants to watch a popcorn movie starring an ugly person (unless it's a beautiful person who's made up to look like an ugly person)

My favorite part of those movies is how these supposed 'archeologist' go around destroying irreplaceable artifacts. Pretty sure that's not how it works.

They didn't dynamite the whole area just to be sure.

That's only because they didn't have access to historical records like The Mummy and Indiana Jones. If they had, they would have gone ahead and nuked the places--why take chances?

The Dig was a nice movie. Even when Ralph Fiennes didn't immediately murder Ken Stott. That would have been sweet.
