    "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull." Say it aloud. The very title causes the pulse to quicken, if you, like me, are a lover of pulp fiction. What I want is goofy action--lots of it. I want man-eating ants, swordfights between two people balanced on the backs of speeding jeeps, subterranean caverns of gold, vicious femme fatales, plunges down three waterfalls in a row, and the explanation for flying saucers. And throw in lots of monkeys.

    Going through the motions. Humor in the form of arcane references to the others films and dowdy puns on Ford's age. And was anybody surprised by the aliens? The names Lucas and Spielberg are dead giveaways, although it's fair to hope that Indy would remain steadfast in the old school, rather than conforming to the CGI culture entirely. Not without fun moments: LaBeouf, in a snap of his fingers, turns the tides on the Soviets by involving them in a restaurant Greaser brawl; Ford escapes a Nuclear Bomb testing facility by hiding in a refrigerator; John Hurt acting like John Hurt.

    Indy's back. With full force. The movie's plot is about this secret alien crystal skull that was discovered and Indy must take it back to it's original spot so someone or some "thing" can go back to where they came from. The movie is filled with the usual foreign villains (this time Russians) to try and spoil Indy in getting the skull back to it's spot and the boss of the baddies is none other than hot Australian actress: Cate…

    After re-watching, reliving and re-loving the Indiana Jones films this past month, the time came for me to view the much maligned 4th movie again.

    I'd booked a day off work way back when to watch the first show, first day and was hugely underwhelmed. I'd seen it again back in 2010 and it worked better.

    But after this third viewing, it's also likely to be my last for a very, very long time.

    It's just plain silly to think that something which belonged so intrinsically and fairly beautifully to blockbusters of yesteryear would belong in the fast-paced sequel-world of contemporary Hollywood. Yet the dollar signs could not be removed from the eyes of Lucas or Spielberg and thus we are left with a hugely disappointing outing of one of the most enduring American cinema icons. It is wrong to suggest that LaBeouf should be dealt the most blame, in fact, of the actors,…

    While not a terrible film, KCS offends the films that came before it by replacing breathtaking stunt-work with lunch-losing CGI. Some of the sequences are so bad (monkeys, ants, jeeps, groundhogs, the climax) that it looks like footage from a shitty old video-game. Terrible performances by most of the cast highlighted by Karen Allen, who I assumed at this point in her career actually worked at the bar in the first film, phones in a garbage barge of a take…

    Not as disastrous as its fame led me to believe, yet unfortunately not the misunderstood adventure film I was hoping for. It is such a frustrating conclusion(?) to the saga because of its structure. It is basically a pretty decent scene followed by a terrible scene followed by a decent scene and so on. Its in the third act, though, that the film forgets how to be decent and is just awful.

    There's lot to like about the concept, but…
