Gripping drama about a dementing geriatric Archeologist who thinks he's having an adventure while in reality he's being spoon fed porridge.
So this is the film people claim is one of the worst to come out in not only the last decade, but ever? The film that shit on it's entire franchise?
It's actually not that bad.
Yeah, yeah, I know. It gets a bad rep for doing some stupid shit and it indeed does do some stupid shit. The thing with the aliens was fucking stupid. I think we can all agree aliens have no place in an Indiana Jones…
I debated long and hard whether I should re-watch Kingdom of the Crystal Skull during my Indiana Jones marathon as it seemed wrong to end on such a soul crushing sour note. However, having avoided watching it again since seeing it in the theatre I decided to give it one last try, and maybe with exceedingly low expectations I might even enjoy it. Unfortunately, no matter how lenient and kind I want to be, there is no way I could…
This movie went full retard.
Pretty much the 2001 of shit cinema. Like 2001 my mind is blown. Not by how epically awesome this film is but by how epically terrible the whole film is. There isn't one moment in this film when I thought to myself "wow this is cool". You'd think after 19 years they would of come up with something at least watchable. I avoided this until now as I hadn't heard a single positive thing about it and I really wish I'd never watched this piece of shit. It saddens me that this film made close to $800 million dollars worldwide.
It seems the deck has been stacked against "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" since its release 19 years after "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade." Pilloried by critics and fans of the Indiana Jones series, the film has developed a reputation for being a lackluster and unnecessary closing chapter of the franchise. The film may have its share of issues, but is not as bad as its reputation might have viewers believe.
Coming nearly two decades…
*makes universal hand gesture for 'jerking off'*
Why isn't Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull a one-star film? Because Cate Blanchett explodes at the end.
Ugh! South Park was right. Our childhood memories were raped by Spielberg and Lucas with this turd. They just couldn't help themselves... the Indiana Jones trilogy was perfect, it didn't need another sequel, its vintage feel and nostalgic charm made Raiders, Temple of Doom and The Last Crusade timeless.
Instead, we were forced fed nuclear-proof fridges, Karen Allen forgetting…
When I first saw this on the cinema I was gutted by he ending. In fact I was completely gutted. On re watching this I was not as gutted. Yes, you don't need the last five minutes in the temple, yes the monkey swinging is off tone and yes, Indy is old...but other than that...
Seriously, other than the above hassles this is an enjoyable movie. It's not great and not a patch in the others but you hold this…
This is the end. My only friend, the end.
Okay, let's not get too pretentious here. I'm sad that this Indiana Jones-watch has come to an end, but it had to happen. And we finish with the weakest, silliest (never mind what I said in the Last Crusade-review) Jones movie yet.
But I still love it.
It's quite a different beast than the three previous films, paying its respects to the science-fiction films and tropes of the 50's mixed in…
The weakest of the series but I still had a good time watching it.
I like the opening sequence a lot. In fact I like the beginning of this film a lot. Around the time we get to Peru the film begins to show it's weaknesses.
The fridge. I know I know I know. But it doesn't bother me that much. Once an alien makes it's appearance I knew I was going to have to let a lot reality based…
Don't toy with me, Dr. Jones. What is the point of all this?

Watching all four Indiana Jones movies in the span of five days does Kingdom of the Crystal Skull no favors. While I always felt that The Temple of Doom was an empty shell of what came before and immediately after it, I can say with confidence that I think it's still a better film then the last Indy outing.
The overall story isn't…
