Return.


My review of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull:

Ugh.

To be fair, I'm sure they could have survived at least 4 to 5 more waterfall drops. Three is just a warmup act.

I thought the rope-swing transition to sword-fight-on-speeding-vehicles-through-a-forest was, well... ugh is right.

this is just a clever trick to try to make me not enjoy this movie when I see it tomorrow. Dark fire will not avail you.

Hey dub have you seen Iron Man?

ugh Iron Man. What a fucking horrible movie. The plot: Republicans blow people up, Arabs are bad, women are helpless, being in a metal suit that is on fire is completely safe and if your face smashes into a concrete wall you won't get so much as a scratch.

I enjoyed Indy. Why didn't you?

I was just very disappointed. First, I really did not like the plot in general. I did not really like the direction they went. Second, I though that 99% of the sarcasm and jokes fell flat and just were not funny. Third, I am all for suspension of disbelief, but Indy is not a superhero. Fourth, that Tarzan-in-the-vines scene was awful.

I just was not very entertained by it.

i was willing to forgive pretty much everything for the sake of my own entertainment but tarzan jones jr was just awful. also i didn't like the whole alien plot, but just because of the holy relics in the first three. but i thought it was pretty fun and i would watch again. but they put too much attention on indy's age and too many co-stars.

I don't know, I thought it accomplished what it set out to do. Just as the first three were adventures reflective of the thirties, this one reflected the fifties (i.e. aliens, nuclear bombs, Tarzan, etc.). There was just as many things to disbelieve in this installment as there were in the first three. I think Ebert is right, if you liked the other three, there's no good reason to not like this one. Also, if you are willing to believe that God personally smites those that aren't "worthy", is it really a stretch to accept inter-dimensional beings?

last night at like 3 a.m. I couldn't sleep and I was thinking "Man, what did I do on Memorial Day?" and suddenly I remembered the scene where Indy survives a nuclear blast in a fridge and I was like "awwwww yeah."

I admit I did like the fridge scene quite a bit. That thing was built right.
