I went to see Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull last night. I was not disappointed. Yes, the movie was unbelievable! Yes, Indiana Jones is old and in no way could do the things he did! Yes, it ended in a sort of stupid manner for me. BUT, Yes, it took me away for 2 hours and I had a good time! That to me is what's important in a movie!
The story goes pretty much the same as any other Indiana Jones movie. Indiana finds himself in some hot water in the beginning of the movie, and he manages to get out of it, then he is in his calm setting in the university, and then he gets the "call" that his help is needed, this time in Peru, then you meet the rest of the characters, and then the plot thickens, more action occurs, and Indiana wins and all is well. Full of action and scenery, full of the "gross" stuff that Indiana and companions meet, and full of the "that couldn't really happen" reaction from the viewers.
I had fun, and isn't that what a movie should be? Nothing I had to think about. Nothing I had to feel bad about. I didn't sit and watch 2 hours of real stuff, only fantasy. Just good old fun. Just an escape from the world for a couple of hours.
My next movie: Sex and the City. Then it's The Dark Knight. Maybe there will be a few in between, but most of them will be on DVD.
