The Fedora and Whip Are Back!

I went to see the new Indiana Jones movie this weekend. I kept waiting for them to screw up the movie. Although it wouldn't seem to hard to break an award-winning formula (Harrison Ford+beautiful women+lots of action+humorous dialog in the midst of action sequences), plenty of directors who've gone back and touched a previous money-making movie have managed to screw things up (Matrix Trilogy? New Star Wars movies? Etc.)

Anyhow. On to my 10 second movie blurb. Harrison Ford looks a bit more haggard than he used to, but it doesn't stop him from kicking bad-guy butt, the enemy this time being the Russians. So he manages to keep his wits and wittiness about him as he (SPOILER ALERT) goes off on the hunt for a crystal skull, uncovers the mysteries of Area 51, survives a nuclear blast in a lead-lined refrigerator and meets up with an old flame.

So grab your whip and fedora and head to the movie theater. What are you afraid of, snakes?

I hope to see this soon. The reviews are mostly negative, but that isn't putting me off any. Can't wait :)

I thought it was pretty good, although I have to say that the third one with Sean Connery is still by far my favorite!

nymeth-hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

rhinoa-really? The reviews over here have been pretty positive. I was kind of surprised.

stephanie-yup, nothing can surpass that one as the best movie. Totally agree with you there!

I loved it too! The one with Sean is still my fav, too, but this one is close....good to see Karen Allen back, and it was very enjoyable. I will definitely be getting this for our collection!

I thought they did a great job of staying true to the old movies. A little corny at the end (actually we went to a late show so I struggled to keep my eyes open--eeks!), but overall pleasantly surprised!
