This week's reviewed movie is:
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull




Gene the Barber

Snick the Sidekick

Gordie the Barber


This plot involves a now-older Indiana Jones becoming involved in a scheme by communist agents to return a so-called crystal skull to a temple in Peru.

I really found this movie worth seeing, and it serves as a timely reminder why this franchise is so beloved, whereas other contenders simply seem dull in comparison.

It isn't about CGI overkill; it's about the humanity of the characters, and of course the old-fashion feel of the action cliff-hanger scenes I grew up with.

Without a doubt the worst Indiana Jones of the series.

But that doesn't stop it from being a very entertaining film.

Heavy on CGI and light on plot, it is still a nostalgic trip back to the 50s, complete with cold war politics and UFO conspiracies -- humorous nods to the earlier films, plus great action sequences make this a movie-going thrill ride.

He may be a little older and the routine a little tired, but he's still Indiana Jones.

Indiana Jones, the action hero, returns after nearly 27 years with a fresh new enemy and a winning side-kick.

Everything old is renewed, including the super star, Harrison Ford, who looks younger than he has in years.

The film has action sequences that are so huge that they seem to bewilder and amaze some audiences and can make them laugh at the boldness of the fun of it all.

The motion picture is really like a live-action cartoon -- a B movie done in an A classy style.
