    Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

    ★★½

    Hard to believe this came out ten years ago (5/23/08) now! I haven't had the guts to rewatch it since I saw it that day in the theater. Despite my best hopes, time hasn't been particularly kind. It's about as bad as I remembered.

    I wasn't sure if I liked this one at first- but it definitely resonated with me in a strong way. It stays with you, and leaves you thinking.

    It's a surreal look at a man struggling with the encroaching responsibilities of fatherhood- at least that's my take. Some definite echoes of Kafka and Lynch here.

    I was really taken with how the film itself made…
