All four of us ventured over to the cineplex to see Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. It will be hard to review it for you without spoiling it so let me just say:

Harrison Ford: still very charming and believable

Shia Labeouf: winning me over

Cate Blanchette: beautiful, even when she is sinister

Chase scenes: thrilling

Lighting: so well done as to be noticeable

Snakes: he's still afraid of them

The costumes: worn by the actors and the audience, we saw four Indys

The plot: easy to follow, even if you missed two of the original trilogy

The end: satisfying!

The verdict: pretty close to four out of five cupcakes. It was awfully loud.

Veto's down on me giving less than four cupcakes to Indy. Veto now needs a blog of his own.

Dear Saucy,
I love Indy. Does he have his hat?
I am going this weekend.

Linked over from derfwad. This is the very first time I've read you and well two things.
1. I decorated my children's room in Indiana Jones when they were little.
2.I've been to a star trek convention.
So you can imagine why I'll be back.
Thanks for fun read!

We're waiting to see this movie when all the hullabaloo dies down a bit (crowds make me nervous). I love Indiana Jones.

I think I'm the only person I know who has not seen any of the Indiana Jones movies.

I've also not seen any Star Wars movies, except, well, Star Wars. That was back in the day, of course.

Melissa said...

Yay! I heart Indy! So do the boys since I've introduced them.

Saw it Saturday - LOVED! The best were the teenies in the theatre swooning over Shia. Cracked me up!
