I grew up with the respective trilogies of Star Wars and Indiana Jones. Perhaps it’s just my old age, but I didn’t like any of the Star Wars prequels that were released over the last few years (they focus on cartoonish special effects instead of a real storyline and character development). Thus, I was curious about the quality of the new Indiana Jones movie… My entire family went to the theatre over the Memorial Day weekend to catch the “Crystal Skull”.
Perhaps we’re jaded from seeing so many similar “treasure hunting” movies (National Treasure, Sahara, Fools Gold, etc.), but my sons and I gave the movie a resounding ‘C’. How many times can you watch a guy crawling through a cave to find the secret door handle, etc.?
