Boooooring: Thumbs Way Down on New Indiana Jones Flick

By Debbie Schlussel
Today, I screened the new Gerontology Jones, er . . . Indiana Jones flick–“Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” (along with two horrid movies which were far worse). And I didn’t like it. At all.
I’m prohibited from posting my review until late Wednesday Night or early Thursday Morning (the movie debuts in theaters on Thursday), but with apologies to Roger Ebert, thumbs waaaay down on this. This latest installment isn’t even close to being up to the level of either of the lackluster sequels to the original “Raiders of the Lost Ark.”
If it’s any indication–and it is–I fell asleep like four times . . . and missed nothing. Yaaaaawn. Mixing outer space themes with the Indie Jones thing is a bad idea. In spades.

Stay tuned for my complete review, later this week. And, please, find someone who can do a better Russian accent than Cate Blanchett. Oy.

The next film in the series is supposed to be, “Indiana Jones and The Fountain of Youth.” Indy finds the Fountain of Youth but due to Alzheimer’s forgets where it is. He gets so frustrated, he whips himself to death.

No offense, but couldn’t you tell it would be bad just by watching the commercials? Once again it’s style over substance. People think that special effects are more important than the story. For pete’s sake the Scifi channel had a 2 hour documentary on the Origins of the Crystal Skull mythology. Need I say any more? Oh well at least you got some Zzz’s.

Indiana Jones is an offense to Islam.

All of the Indiana Jones movies were crap. Every last one of them.
