    It's a slasher flick. That's about it.

    mother!

    ★★½

    This may be someone's cup of tea but it sure ain't mine. It's well acted but it is just to batshit crazy for me. Not the good crazy. The totally incoherent crazy that just looses you. I'm sure there is a lot of depth and meaning behind it all but I just don't care enough to figure any of it out.

    It's action and adventure personified. A near perfect film. The characters, stunts and music are all iconic. Exciting from start to finish. Plus there are Nazis. Everyone loves to hate Nazis. No matter how many times I've seen it is just as entertaining as it was the first time.

    Fortune and glory kid. Fortune and glory. I know people have some issues with it but I still love it. Sure Willie isn't Marion Ravenwood. She screams a lot. Short Round may offend some today but he's a tough, smart, funny and resourceful character. He is in his own way every bit of Indy's equal. The opening club scene, the mind cart chase and bridge standoff are all extremely memorable. So is that dinner scene that still grosses me out even today. Living up to Raider's is near impossible. That shouldn't lessen your enjoyment of Indy's second outing.
