    A damn fine night at the movies. Obviously this is another slightly odd (to American audiences) package release, like last year’s To the Swordsmith Village film, combining the last episode of season 3 and the premiere of the upcoming season 4.

    The thought that kept running through my mind as I sat through all twelve hours of Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny was “How?”

    How can a movie with “Indiana Jones” in the title be this boring?

    How can a movie starring three of my favorite actors – Harrison Ford, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Mads Mikkelsen – be this lifeless?

    How can a movie that reportedly cost $300 million to make – one of the highest budgets in film history…
