Well I'm pretty much shocked that there hasn't been a thread created for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Actually, there hasn't even been a thread created for any of the old Indiana Jones flicks (I searched, and I didn't see anything, so if there actually is a thread, then I didn't do a good job searching ). So here's a thread for the new Indiana Jones movie and the movies that preceded Crystal Skull.
I saw it on Friday, and the room was packed. My cousins and I had to wait in a line outside of the theater for an 8:30 pm show (we bought our tickets at around 7:15 pm). The whole waiting-outside-in-a-line process always happens with big movies, but I still hate it. After a long wait, we got into the theater and the movie came on, but unfortunately after waiting for a long time, I was feeling pretty sleepy. Luckily the movie kept me entertained that I didn't doze off (which I actually did during the previous movie I watched, Made of Honor ).
So yeah, I did enjoy the movie, but comparing it to the previous Indi movies, this one was the worst. (And by the way, I'm not putting anything in spoiler tags since the movie is already out, so if you don't want to get spoiled, don't read on.) The whole alien story line was kind of weird to me, even though I did read interviews and knew that the plot was going to be about just that. It's just... different from the previous movies. This one deals with outer space and stuff, and I didn't pay $10.50 for a sci-fi movie. Nonetheless Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was still enjoyable and still packed with action, just a little different than the other movies.
What I loved the most about the movie was realizing that Indi actually has a family. I read interviews and such, so I knew Mutt (Shia LeBeouf) was going to be Indiana's son, but I still gasped in the theater for some reason when Marion told Indi that Mutt is his son. Oh, and I love Karen Allen! I'm so glad they brought her back. It took like, an hour for her to finally appear in the movie, which kind of made me mad, but at least she did.
(The follow paragraph has no spoilers in it, so you can read it if you're trying to avoid spoilers. )
So anyone else catch the movie yet? If you did, post your opinions in here please! I would love to read what others think of the movie. And actually, if you have anything to say about Raiders of the Lost Ark, Temple of Doom, and the Last Crusade, then post it in here also.
