Indy Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull seems to be big hit in mid-Michigan
May 28, 2008
When super-wife and I saw "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" this past weekend, we felt like we were visiting an old friend.
The Indy Jones movies were staples around our house on Saturdays after supper and after bath times for our kids. Even though they were predictable, they were fun to watch.
Harrison Ford plays a hero who emotes a low-key bravado and who could be your next door neighbor.
Time magazine movie reviewer Richard Corliss seems to really capture the film and its significance for our national psyche:
"There are scenes in the new movie that seem like stretching exercises at a retirement home . . ."
"Crystal Skull is intended, and works effectively, as instant nostalgia-a class reunion of the old gang who in the 80s reinvigorated the classice action film with such expertise and brio."
