    Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

    There are definitely moments in this film where I thought, 'this is an Indiana Jones movie', and it's always great to see Harrison. My god, when he was scrambling up those crates in the opening scene, I was like, 'how does he still do it!?' But it definitely felt forced at times. Cate Blanchett's accent work goes in the hall of fame for worst ever, changing sometimes 2-3 times in a single sentence. Nice to see Karen Allen again. Mutt was frustratingly annoying. The refrigerator was not the problem.

    I'd been wanting to watch this for a long time, since we covered Prisoners and Enemy on Dune Pod. I think Jake is always a great performer, but for whatever reason, this movie just did not add up for me. Jake was great, but it was hard to tell just how unhinged he was supposed to be from moment to moment. I also thought the film was largely very predictable, which was a bummer. Final strike against it was James Newton Howard's score, which just bugged me the whole time. Renee Russo was a vision. It's OK, but I was expecting a 5 banger.

'At the end of it, you know you're going to hit bottom, and kind of want it...you are trying to do it, trying to finish it off...if you have $450K in the bank and you lose $400K, you say fuck it, I don't want money to remind me that I had more money.' The whole time I watched this movie, I was marveling at…

    This film is perfect, one of the most expertly crafted in history, with cinematography by Barry Sonnenfeld, score by Carter Burwell, and flawless direction by the Coen Brothers. But ultimately, it is the script, that is not only jam packed with amazing dialog of the early 20th century (what's the rumpus?!), but containing an intricately detailed plot that unfolds with subtlety and finesse. Repeat viewings pay big returns as you see how masterfully people are playing the game with double-crosses…
