Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

27 05 2008

One of the most highly anticipated movies for me this year was Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.  I’ve been waiting for this picture a long time….a long time.  Finally it has arrived!  I went to the midnight permeire of the film last Wednesday/Thursday and let me just tell you that I thought it was great.  Some critics didn’t care for it much, but you know what???? Too bad for them.  If you enjoy Indiana Jones then you’ll enjoy this film.  If you enjoy fun films, you’ll enjoy this film.  If you breathe oxygen…’ll enjoy this film.

Is the whole thing great?  No.  There are parts I could have done without (involvin swinging from branches), but the overall film was enjoyable.  I’ve come to the conclusion that one must not nitpick a film because you have to think about it like this:

Think of it as a person you’re close to.  Sure they’re good people, but there may be a few things you don’t like that they do.  But you’re not going to not like that person for those small, insignificant reasons.  So it is with Indiana Jones.  Don’t let the few slow, pointless scenes spoil the whole film.  Enjoy it! Have fun!  It’s freakin’ Indiana Jones for crying out loud and it’s been 19 years since the last one came out.

Go see it, many times.  You’ll be glad you did.
