The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec ★★★★½

The Fifth Element meets Indiana Jones, but here Indy is an incisive, caustic Frenchwoman, all wit and style. This absolutely delightful movie is full of everything you watch great pulp adventures for. Absurd escapes! Ridiculous action scenes! Chekov's mummy-making machine! The terrifying old man from the Six Flags commercials, only here with a psychic connection to a pterodactyl! I could go on but I don't want to be spoilery. I am going to make it a mission to make sure everybody sees this gem, though. And to find the comic book it's based on, even if I need a French dictionary to read it. GLORIOUS
