Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Q: What’s the movie about?

A: Indiana Jones returns after 20 years to prove that at age 65, he's still the James Bond of archeology.

Q: Who’s in the movie?

A: Harrison Ford, Cate Blanchett, Shia LeBeouf, Karen Allen, Ray Winstone, John Hurt, Jim Broadbent

Q: Is this movie worth the price of admission?

A: PhotobucketProceed with Caution. Go! Stop! Does it really matter what I say, since you're gonna go see it anyway? Still, here's a hint: the franchise has jumped the shark.

Q: Will this movie make me laugh?

A: Only if you've ever brought a knife to a gun fight.

Q: Will this movie make me cry?

A: Sometimes when I try to understand why anyone would like this silly, inconsequential and ridiculously contrived movie, I feel so out of touch that I cry into my soup.

Q: Will this movie be up for any awards?

A: Can they give someone an Academy Award for a score that's already been nominated and lost? Because the Indiana Jones theme song is still good.

Q: How is the Acting?

A: Same as it ever was. Only now with a cane and bifocals.

Q: How is the Directing?

A: Signature Spielberg... in other words, kind of old fashioned.

Q: How is the story/script?

A: Do you speak Mayan? Neither do I. Unfortunately, without an expert knowledge of the ancient (dead) language, it's nearly impossible to judge whether any of it makes sense. The writers obviously realized this, and used it as an excuse not to make sense.

Q: Is there anything else worth mentioning about the movie?

A: If they redo the ride at Disneyland to match this film, it might finally be worth standing in line for.

I didn't like this movie.

As I drove away from the theater I found myself getting madder and madder.

This was an epic let down. If I ever have to wait twenty years for a sequel to a great film again, it better be worth it. Whoever decided this was worth making was conned and probably not a real fan of the original. Though special effects and set design were great, I still want my two+ hours back!
