Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

As it turns out, the best part of the new Indiana Jones movie for me was the anticipation and the nostalgia it evoked. I haven’t enjoyed the sequels nearly as much as I enjoyed Raiders of the Lost Ark. Harrison Ford does a fine job, but the script doesn’t hold together very well.

You can’t fault a franchise that’s a take off of pulp stories for having implausible action scenes, so I won’t. But all the character’s motivations seem muddled or just plain silly. I’m not going to list all my gripes, but let’s just say I wasn’t impressed.

Nevertheless, I still enjoy slapping my floppy rain hat on my head and pretending to be Indy with my kids. So there’s that.
