    The most common complaint I've heard about this is the increased use of CG in the action set pieces and the more overtly silly aspects like the monkeys, groundhogs, or the infamous refrigerator. The series has never been about realism though so these complaints seem to me to hold more truth as criticisms of the style and tone of the film rather than really claiming that it is a spiritual departure from the rest of the series. Even if some…

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

    The first half is actually fine, it still has a lot of the old charm, rightfully updated to include the cultural artifacts of the 1950s (the Red scare, aliens, the atomic age). I actually believe those are so well set-up (Spalko wanting to turn "you" into "us", without you even knowing it, with the help of alien technology) that the real disappointment comes when the movie turns into a conventional treasure hunt. Things take a downward turn very quickly once…

    As a person in their early twenties there are a lot of films I have special memories of: either positive or negative. Revisiting these films with both a greater perspective on film and life is usually a rewarding experience. However after keeping away from "Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" since its release I was hoping that my disappointment at the age of 15 had more to do with the film not meeting high expectations as opposed to the low quality…

    It's Indy vs. the Commies this time, and Indy's, well, how to put this delicately ... of an age.

    The silliness starts early ... before we're even ten minutes in we're expected to believe that gunpowder and shotgun pellets are magnetic, neither of which is true and it doesn't take a weapons expert to know this. Is it a big deal? Well, not really since the franchise is the spiritual offspring of the old Hollywood serials, as well as (in…

    Indiana Jones in the 60s.

    Okay just like the Star Wars prequels I like this movie. I think if you took out the name Indiana Jones and if the other three never existed then it would have been better received than it was by the fans. Sure it's not a perfect movie but than again what movie, even some of our favorites of all time, is? We can nitpick any movie to death and find flaws. But overall if people…

    Harrison Ford returns as Indiana Jones for one last time? Cate Blanchett is a Russian agent after him and a bunch of magical skulls.

    I've tried so damn hard to hate this film like everybody else. But every time I watch the film, I find something new to like, and the older it gets the more it feels fresh compared to the cinematic times. This time I took notes with the intention of doing a beat-by-beat analysis, and I was really impressed with the beautiful set-design and amount of symbolism in most every shot, which serve to both honor and satirize the 50s (both…

    This is my third or fourth viewing of the film. When I first saw it in cinemas I considered it inferior to the original trilogy of films, but not that bad anyhow. That would have netted the film 3 stars. This time I saw The Last Crusade and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull back to back and by doing so, Kingdom has come out in bad shape. I don't actually mind that this film deals with alien artifacts, and that…
