Oh Indy!

For our weekend date, we went to watch Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. For the record, I grew up on Indiana Jones movies. My parents loved them. We even saw bits of the not-so-successful Young Indiana Jones TV series. When we go to Disneyland, we always make it a point to ride on the Indiana Jones ride.

With all that said, I must say that I was completely disappointed with the latest Indy saga. There's nothing worse than watching your one time hero run like an old man across the screen. It totally reminded of the episodes of Spongebob with Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy. Who casted Cate Blanchett as the evil Russian villan? She's too pretty and not tough enough. She was like Natasha from Rocky and Bullwinkle. The whole bit with the alien skull was too far fetched. The action scenes were unimpressive. How about Shia's whole Tarzan scene? Would I recommend this movie? Nope. You're better off watching Raiders of the Lost Ark at home.


Who brings their toddler to watch a movie that involves machine guns and eyes being burned?
