I saw “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” last nigh on Netflix DVD…

…it was pretty dull and uninteresting.

I never thought I’d use the words “dull” and “uninteresting” to describe a Indiana Jones movie.

I did kike the reference to the Young Indy Chronicles and to Indy being in the OSS during WW2.

The initial scene with Marion was good.

I hated the whole aliens thing. WTF was with that?

I don’t care if they make another one or not now.

  1. I didn’t mind the aliens — it’s a 1950s mythos, and aliens are clearly a part of that.

    I minded everything else.

    Indiana Jones also struck me as a child’s view of the cool adventures that go into making an issue of the National Geographic.

  2. I was just bored. I don’t mind there being reds.

    I thin kI would have prefered some Amazon jungle adventures that would have tied in with Nazi scientist working out of south America. Perhaps Indy Jones meets the Boys From Brazil. I would have liked to have seen a western style three-way standoff: Indy vs KGB vs SS resolved in a unique way (Nazi and reds shooting each other up while indy slinks away with the mcguffin).

    I just found it dull. Maybe it is hard to find a good adventure movie nowadays becuase standards are higher. Really, how can a 3 hour movie compete with a 16 hour Lost season or 24 hours of 24 in character development and ploty-goodness.
