I recently caught up on the entire Indiana Jones trilogy so that I could watch this newest Indiana Jones. I enjoyed the first three; they seemed to be timeless adventure classics even though there were, of course, some silly and childish moments in the movies, but all in all I enjoyed watching them. This latest Indiana Jones really left me disappointed. I found that Cate Blanchett’s character was awful; from her accent, supposed age of mid 30’s (she is 39 is real life but her character looks a lot older) and that terrible haircut! Most of the actors in this movie seem to be decent at their job, but this movie made them look like new comers in the acting world. The ending was worse than I could have ever imagined, especially for an Indiana Jones movie, I don’t want to spoil it but really, what were they thinking?!?! The CGI seemed like it was from one of the first Indiana Jones movies in the 80’s, I really think someone dropped the ball here because parts of this movie just look WAY too fake. I felt very bored throughout the first part of this movie and unfortunately it just didn’t get any better. I really enjoy Harrison Ford as an actor but even he couldn’t save this movie. 1 paw


Uuggghhhh!!!!!! There’s so much they could’ve done with the latest installment of the Indiana Jones series but they didn’t. Don’t get me wrong, Harrison Ford still looks like he could make ten more of these films and he is terrific as always in this role, but you either have to love Indiana Jones movies or be 8 to 12 years old to really like the Crystal Skull. It’s the same story as others just different twists and turns, but it’s the ending that left me shaking my head. There’s some Area 51 plot in this movie which is always fun, and you even get a little glimpse of the Ark of the Covenant that started the Indiana Jones craze, but little else satisfies in this blockbuster. Harrison Ford should’ve been a little more picky when reading this script. 1 ½ paws
