    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Okay, quick admission: I don't mind the whole alien thing in Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. This is the same franchise that had a dude living in a cave for hundreds of years drinking from the fountain of youth, are aliens really that hard to believe? My problem isn't even with Shia Labeouf. My problem is with the ridiculous stunts. From the nuked fridge to the swinging with monkeys to the 3 consecutive waterfalls, these people are no longer human,…

    Gotta say, I don't dislike it as much as Temple of Doom, it's kinda fun, for what it is.

    Good movie. Great effects. Throughout the story, you are kept reminded of how old Harrison Ford is, but he did do some pretty bad ass stunts.

    - Where'd they go? Into space?
    - Not into space... into the space between spaces.

    Ok, I can deal with an older Indiana Jones. I can deal with Cate Blanchett's really bad (and sometimes nonexistent) Russian accent. I can deal with stupid CGI prairie dogs. I can even deal with a story that revolves around space aliens (excuse me, inter-dimensional beings). However, what I cannot deal with is such a poorly written script. There is just no excuse for it.…

    I actually didn't think it was all that bad. Great direction, a neat little story and a ton of fun. Sure, it has a bad ending, too much reliance on CGI and it fails to create a compelling father/son relationship, but the film has this giddy sense of adventure in it that entertains for most of the running time.

    Imagine you are in a restaurant and you're having a meal. (In this analogy it wouldn't be anything too gorgeous, in fact, it's a KFC at best.)

    So okay, you're starting to eat your below average meal and something assails your senses: a rather unpleasant smell. It wafts up into your nostrils completely spoiling the eating experience. It even makes you bring forth a small portion of gip. Then it dissipates and you go back to your meal.

    A minute…

    This movie fascinates me. Seven years after its release it has garnered a well-deserved reputation as a dreadful movie and is the epitome of vastly inferior sequel. There's so much you can say about why it fails, almost all of which has been said before, but what perplexes me is the 'why.' Why were so many of these decisions made? Why did they take a look at some of these shots and say 'that's fine, cut, print, we're moving on.'…

    I keep giving this a chance and it keeps disappointing me. The whole movie feels too much like a parody of its predecessors and there is nothing nearly as charming about how it's shot or the effects work. Also, there's a whole thing with prairie dogs that just screams "You should be watching Caddyshack".

    I guess what I'm saying is skip this and rewatch Caddyshack.

    This one really gets a bad rap.

    I'm not exactly sure why. But I have a few ideas that I wanna bounce around…

    “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” is the fourth film in the Indiana Jones franchise. The first three films were made in an eight year period (1981-1989). They were universally beloved. Mostly. (We’ll talk more about that later)

    “Crystal Skull” was released nineteen years later, in 2008. All of the original franchise creators were…

    Underrated. Indiana is older, and Mutt's likability is up for debate. One chase sequence goes on for much too long, but all the familiar elements are there. Expectations are so high, people could not help but be disappointed. I enjoyed it more than Temple of Doom though.

    I wasn't sure if I wanted to revisit this film. I considered stopping after The Last Crusade in an attempt to preserve some of my childhood, but I just couldn't resist going on one last adventure with Indy. A mistake to be sure, because Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was worse than I remembered.
