I am more excited about Sex in the city.

19-05-08, 13:25
Not until the 28th here.

The original plan was if I went to Indy with my boyfriend he would come see Sex in the city with me..BUT we were gonna go see it Monday after it comes out and then we made plans to go to Cadonas (theme park) that day..and he also wants to take his brother to it who is at school. So we can't go after or before we are done at the park. So he said he'd take his brother by himself and still come see SITS xD.

This review made me excited :D


Hands up everyone who has dug out the grainy VHS tapes, splashed out on the boxset or tuned in to the repeats of the iconic Indiana Jones trilogy recently? All in preparation for the return of the whip-cracking archaeologist after two decades away from the cinema. But is Indy's return a thrilling joyride or an ill-conceived attempt to revive a franchise best kept alive through rose-tinted memories of the glory days? The answer lies somewhere in between, as one's reactions to the film swerve more wildly than the mine cars in the Temple of Doom.

Set in 1957, and evoking the period setting flawlessly, the merits of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull can be split down the middle in terms of its quality. The first half is mostly lifeless, devoid of momentum and simply too full of plot exposition and background details about the mystery of a seemingly alien skull that the dastardly Russians are after, along with Jones. Given Ford's trademark laid back, laconic drawl, it feels like being stuck in an overlong history lesson presided over by the monotonous teacher from the Charlie Brown cartoons.

The highly watchable Shia LeBeouf shows his beef as the follicularly-obsessed Mutt, but the character fails to spark the narrative into life despite providing Indy with some vital information from his mother - none other than Marion Ravenwood (Karen Allen) from Raiders of the Lost Ark. An efficiently directed motorbike chase scene sees the pair form a bond, but the plot is lumbered with too much flabby excess baggage such as the pointless presence of the FBI and their investigations into Jones.

The central villain of the piece, Irina, looks a Nazi version of Betty Boo and is equipped with such clichéd dialogue that one starts to wonder whether director Steven Spielberg has spliced in some outtakes of Frau Farbissina from an Austin Powers movie. Cate Blanchett wisely keeps a straight face throughout, although that's a far harder job for the audience.

However, once the action hits the jungle and the focus is solely on the battle between good and evil for the possession of the skull, the film finally becomes the breathtaking rollercoaster we'd all hoped for. Packed full of visually outstanding sets, jaw-dropping chases, flesh-eating bugs, sympathetic simians and incredible stunt work, the latter half of Crystal Skull showcases the clinical mastery that Spielberg has with action sequences. He manages to make them frenetic without ever losing a sense of clarity as to what's going on. Having said that, the finale is certainly a case for Mulder and Scully to crack.

There's no doubt that at the core of the film is an admirable attempt to demonstrate that heroes need not be pensioned off simply because of grey hairs and wrinkles. There's plenty of life left in Harrison Ford's legs and he's hardly at the stage where he's carrying a colostomy bag in one hand and a whip in the other, while demanding that a stairlift be installed inside any sacred temples to facilitate easier access.

On the subject of humour, there's a noticeable lack of the visual gags that punctuated earlier instalments in the franchise. Don't expect anything here to rival the genius of Indiana pulling a gun on the master swordsman in Raiders or the inventiveness of Indy's dad accidentally shooting his own plane to bits mid-air in The Last Crusade. Furthermore, the bickering between Indiana and Marion becomes grating pretty much immediately.

In fact, Marion's presence is surplus to requirements and adds very little to the enjoyment factor. Fortunately, the decision to cast British thespian stalwarts John Hurt, Jim Broadbent and Ray Winstone in new roles certainly pays off as they play their characters with the right degree of relish and seriousness.

Elsewhere, there are some brief but touching nods to the earlier movies, with visual references to both the late Denholm Elliot's character Marcus and Sean Connery's Professor Henry Jones.

Overall, several snips in the editing suite and a few more genuine laughs could have done wonders for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Yet if you can manage to stifle the yawns early on in the film and expel rather then suspend disbelief, then the movie should have won you over once it enters the home straight. It's certainly enough to hope for one more crack of the whip in the future.

Harrison Ford does well though, especially as he's 64 now.

I just came from the Movie and i must say that it was rather good, but its like a big blow with an Older Indy and now he has a Son. http://raven.theraider.net/images/smilies/frown.gif

Why wait almost 20 Years for another Indy Movie when Harrosen Ford is 65, why not make more Indy Movies after the third one. Now he's Married and you can sort of close the book and say the end. What a waste of 19 Years for a third Film where we could've gotton more. http://raven.theraider.net/images/smilies/gun.gif http://raven.theraider.net/images/smilies/whip.gif

Harrison looks very good for his Age, he really squashed Sylvester Stallone in Rambo 4 where he looked like a very tired buffed up Old Geaser with 10 lines in the Movie. http://raven.theraider.net/images/smilies/sick.gif

The references and Jokes were cool, but nothing was said about Willy or Shorty and Sallah. They probably werent his BEST Friends like Oxley and Mac, characters i never knew before. http://raven.theraider.net/images/smilies/confused.gif

isnt willy the girl from the second part?.. shorty is definitely anoying,... and sallah?.. i kind of missed him, but,.. this was not a soup, you are not supposed to mix sallah in every movie,. he is still a grave digger in egypt,...

thou i agree, why wait 19 years to get another episode, when it would have been clearly possible the most 7 years ago...:( that bother me,.. now indy is definitely oo old, even tou he went great, its obvious that the adventures are counted,.. and,.. indiana jones without harrisond ford is just not indiana jones at all... its like joey without F.R.I.E.N.D.S... a waste,...

Now i know why i enjoy Tombraider so much, because there were a new TR every Year.

If TR1 were made and we waited 9 Years for TR Legend, i would've walked and demanded my Money from Crystal Dynamics.

Things like the fact that (SPOILER; HIGHLIGHT) he has a son should be spoilered I think. Because some people won't want to know that.

22-05-08, 15:17
Okay, so I've always been an Indy fan. I lapped up anything I could get my hands on in my younger years. Books, Games, the tv show, the flicks (I'll never forget that heartbreaking Christmas where we were forced to return my Indiana Jones VHS Boxset, and the store couldn't replace it)

I love all three movies, and so was pretty excited about going to see this. I was hoping to avoid Spoilers in this review, but there are a few below which are really important to my feelings about the film. so I'll make do with saying that this deserves it's place in the Indy saga. I know a lot of reviews have said that it doesn't feel like Indiana Jones, but it does IMO. It's just Indy in a different period setting, so obviously it's going to feel slightly different.

The ending was the thing I was most hesitant about, (Highlight for spoilers) involving Aliens in the story of Indiana Jones never seemed like a good idea but I think it works. (Highlight for spoilers)Given that they're not really portrayed as Aliens, but as Higher beings akin to the religious aspects of the first three. I don't see what's wrong with a Franchise (Highlight for spoilers) that has already aknowledged the existance of various Gods to confirm what we think of as Aliens.

Harrison Ford rocks as the older, harder Indy. And I have to say Shia does a terrific Job, if there are any future installments (and there will be if George Lucas and Harrison Ford have anything to say about it) I look forward to seeing more of him as Mutt Williams.

Oh and using the old, less fancy, Paramount logo was awesome, small detail (and actually something I had hoped for before seeing the movie)

i think the whole movie was quite fine,.. the aliens, and the references, and the son,... all of it was nice,... just one thing bother me,.. normally indiana jones isnt about just fighting,. and if your going to fight, then is about fighting on cool places,... i think the movie was driven highly into just plain fight, and there were aswell a few blancks scriptwise. would have been nicer a bit more of exploration and less of fx.

I'm going to go out on a limb and actually say that I prefer it to the original trio. :) I didn't think I would, but thinking about it now, I really do.

The Ark, the Temple of Doom, and the Grail - all wicked. Totally, undeniably brilliant films. Temple was my favourite before now because of the freaky setting.

CGI like beowulf,..????!?!?! would hate that idea... beowulf was already bad enough, as to make another movie imitating humans instead of using them (uncanny valley)... on the other hand animated movies would be cool... animated movies ala batman animated series, or like teen titans, or like the clone wars ones:D:D:D

It's not too ridiculous, it's more like "Omg look at him go! :yik: " .. "Oh, he's fine. Yay." then you forget about it and enjoy the rest of the film. :D Plus they get around it by briefly noting that it's a Lead-lined fridge.

Actually the only bit I raised an eyebrow at was Mutt, tarzan-swinging through the jungle like the monkeys. That was Uber-cheese. ;)

Just returned from the cinema, and I loved it. I would have expected Shia LeBouf's (or what is he spelled like?) character to be a distraction, but he did his job really well. The climax, well, I'm not 100% certain whether I like it the way it is, as it does deviate from standard IJ movies quite a bit, but then, it works and is still great, so I won't complain.

The old logo was a nice touch. So were the rodents everywhere, they were cool. The fridge, well, of course that was highly over-the-top and unrealistic, but given both what came before and what comes afterwards in the same movie, I don't object to it at all. It's fun, and in this case that's all that really counts.

I just watch it last night! WooHoo it was worth it! Older means wiser and more experienced, and Indy just proves that big time! I never like Shia LeBouf and my niece was a big rabid fan of his. I kinda started to like him in this film, before this I despise him in Transformers and Disturbia. :p yeah, he's okay. Marion is back too, and Indy's back in action I felt some sort of surge of joy, I love this trilogy so much. *sniff lol* That Irina Spalko lady kickass!

5/5 stars from me. Can't wait for the trilogy to come out on Blu-Ray!! :jmp::jmp:

I was like WTF there's a big ufo at the end! :yik: I felt like watching a sci-fi movie or x-files, but thank God it's very brief.

Saw it last night and it was pretty damn good, Harrison still played Indy as brilliantly as ever and there was plenty of action sequences in it. 7/8 out of 10.

The only problem I had was the lack of any traps in the tombs/temples/crypts like the originals (boulders, darts etc) and the fact there was far too much comic relief in my opinion but that's todays demographic for you...

now i cant wait for another movie,.. if so,.. im sure it ill be more ala temple of doom,.. inside caverns and castles/palace ... probably in europe now,.. he have never discovered anything over there,.. have he?...

Europe isn't exactly a white spot on the map so I don't think it'd fit as well. North America, Australia or Africa might be good choices for future locations.

Everywhere seems to be the same feeling about the film.
"It's good, apart from the last 10 minutes."

Whereas I say, "It's good, and the last 10 minutes blow me into a state of pure fricking joy."

Chris, I look at it this way: It was a very expensive home video for three guys who missed the old days. They had fun and you could tell. :)

Rivendell
24-05-08, 13:24
Oh, definitely! I can't imagine how much fun everyone involved with the film must have had :tmb:

The whole concept of the story though - Ancient Astronauts, Gods being Extra-Terrestrials - it's so totally up my street. Blame Tomb Raider, and AoD in particular. ;)

Mr.Burns
24-05-08, 13:35
lol. I kept thinking throughout the movie "Where's Lara?" :o It was a good movie. Different than the previous three and despite some critics saying that the old magic was lost, it'll still do well. I'll say this, I hadn't laughed that much in an adventure movie in a long time. I also loved the nice little homages to the older movies. :D

I saw the film last night, and while I don't think it lives up to the old ones, I have to admit that it felt so much like a Tomb Raider game that it wasn't even funny! The blend of Sci-Fi and Raiding, and even the look at times were on par with TR.

There were some things that hurt the movie though...while I think the CG was amazing, I think they took a lot of risks with it, mainly because they did a whole lot of sequences that wouldn't have been possible 20 years ago, so the whole movie felt WAY over the top and unrealistic, which sucked because the old ones felt like they could actually happen.

I think it was a good movie but it wasn't amazing. I love the scenery, especially at the end...but it all just seems more suited for Lara Croft than Indiana Jones...IMO. Whether that's a good thing or a bad thing is up to the viewer.:p

7 out of 10 for me!!! :wve:

Other than that it was awesome I thought some of the unrealistic parts were extremely funny and awesome.

Blame Tomb Raider, and AoD in particular. ;)SPOILERS**

There's one part in the movie where they go down the "well" and the platform stairs goes into the wall. When I saw that it reminds me of Aod's Tomb of Ancient. :D I just smiled.

Rivendell
24-05-08, 16:52
Haha, yes, that's what I was thinking too. Got to be pretty glad we didn't have to make those jumps while the platforms were moving in AoD though. :tea:

Ooh. I saw the movie last night. It was sooo good. I grea up on the Indiana Jones movies, so I was escatic when the IV came out. I was shocked to see how much Harrison Ford had aged, but it was 18 years ago, so you gotta give him some slack. My cousin, who has a major fettish with him, when to a resturant, and Harrison Ford just happened to be there ! She was sooo excited. She took I think three pictures with him and he signed some autographs. She has it framed now. haha lol :D

I can't wait to see this movie! It came out 3 days ago here, I would have seen it already but I'm sick so I don't want to go and then be coughing every few seconds and wreck it for everyone else. I did it once with Pirates of the Caribbean cos I couldnt wait to see it, and it was actually crap for me cos the whole time I was just trying not to cough.

i just went to watch this movie today and i give it a rating of 10/10 :D
honestly it's so good!

to anyone who hasn't seen it and likes the other movies id suggest u go watch it :) it's unmissable

but has anyone noticed the link between underworld and this movie??? shot in the same place, both mayan, i noticed the circular symbol in the movie matched that of the one of underworld's pictures and also he temple looks exactly the same. in fact this movie made me more excited for underworld!!

I started writing mythical stuff down because of him, and I have about 5 or 6 archeology jorunals, full of papers and pictograms, its crazy. It reminds me of the Last Crusade, when Indy's dad had that old diary to get the Holy Grail. lol :D

I would see the movie, to anyone who is reading this. Harrison may be eighteen years older, but he is still an attractive man, and has a great spirit. He loved playing the role as Indiana Jones, and when he passes away, I will cry, for he is an amazing actor, and great ro-model.
I didn't know that Cate Blanchett's that played the *Russian lady*, but now I recognize her. haha
I loved the ending to the movie, and it ended great, and I think because of the way the movie ended, I think that they are going to make more Indiana Jones movies soon.
If that is the case, I will have the first tickets, and be three-four hours early if I have to. lol :p

Great to see Marion back too :tmb: And I liked Mutt...

Although, still not sure about the ending and how the whole story panned out :pi:

SPOILER*I expected Mulder and Scully to show up In the Amazonian rainforest....in 1957....that can't be right, right?

I also thought that they showed too much of the alien when it came close to Irina's face....I liked it better in the shadows. Somewhat passable?

The UFO rising seen could have been more unabashed too.*SPOILER

it made me have a dream last night :
i was going on this weird egyption themed expedition with indy for some reason but in my dreams (as well as real life) i had a phobia of cat mummies (the same ones of tomb raider anniversary) except they could bite and climbcollums after you. so i did this training exercise in a fake pyramid where indy pretended to be a cat mummy so i would get used to them or something :S it was really weird and quite scary, its hard to explain! and then there was this cistern pool withdrains (also scared of drains) and i was standinng on this thin walkway with cat mummy indy chasing me , it looked like the only way was down. so i said "nooo, i cant go in there, i just wont" and he grabbed me and jumped in. it wasnt too nice lol. sounds a bit like a story doesnt it :P

Saw it last night. Absolutely loved it! Fantastic film.

I think the previous ones are the best though. Nothing beats classics. Harrison Ford is like in his 70's now, but still he performed well. I like how the story is set 20 years after the previous movie, which is the same timeframe in which they made the movies.

I saw it last night. I wasn't sure how I liked it after I got out of the theater. While I knew there was alien involvement, I thought maybe there was too much of it. Now, though, I think I like it. It's somewhere between Temple of Doom and Last Crusade for me. I want to see it again, I'll probably like it more.

I came up with an alternate ending for the movie, one I think would have been much better.

First, instead of going after an alien body in the warehouse, the Russians would have Indy find the ark for them. Somehow he would stop them and the scene would play out like it did. Later, when they get to Akator with the skull they would find out that the gods weren't aliens, they were humans, and the throne room is actually a "god machine" ala FoA that uses technology passed on from Atlantis to Akator. The 13 rulers of Akator used it to transform or "evolve" into higher, more powerful beings, and their "crystal" skeletons retained the energy of the machine. So in the throne room, Spalko puts the missing skull on the last skeleton which powers and starts up the machine to transform herself, but at the last second Indy steals a gun and shoots the skull off one of the skeletons, disrupting the process and killing Spalko. It also causes the machine to overload, creating the vortex that destroys the temple, minus the UFO.

Oh, there's so many things they could have done with the plot, I don't even want to get started. But I definitely wished they'd used the Ark more... in several places actually. I think that even adding that one aspect to the plot would have made the story SO much better. :D

25-05-08, 21:49
I'm actually glad they didn't involve the ark too much. Anything more than what I posted would have made it feel like a fan script. What really made the movie not quite as good as it could have been for me was the ending. I like aliens, they interest me, but when I left the theater I was really unhappy. The ending just didn't seem to fit. Now, however, I've gotten used to the idea and I want to see it again!

That's why I thought to have used the ark more, just as an example, would have at least kept the plot on more of an ancient rather than modern theme. But that's just my personal taste, that's all. :D

That's one of the great things though, it takes what people consider to be the cliche 'modern sci-fi' theme of aliens/ufo and turns it on its head, making them the most ancient of all. That's why it's still not a sci-fi film, it's a good old action adventure and hunt for a truly ancient artifact.

The ark of the convenant???? :confused: It would be silly to use the same artifact from the first movie... And it has nothing to do with the storyline anyways...

Like Rivendell said I thought it never became a "modern theme" really because for one, the inside of the spaceship looks nothing like sci-fi, but a temple; and besides, there were always legends of "space visitors" helping build our ancient civilizations, the nazca lines being made for aliens, it's all got more to do with archaelogical myths than science fiction, and it sure doesn't feel like a futuristic movie or X-Files! Most of the movie's development parts, Indy's going through ancient ruins..

Anyways, because this movie is set in the Cold War (a great historical period in terms of possibilities for movies :D:D:D) - the emphasis needs to be done a little more on the subject of technology. I thought that was great :tmb:

Yeah, why not? :vlol: I loved the Ark from the first movie. I thought it was the coolest artifact of all and it's purpose could have been expanded MUCH more, imho. And since I wasn't such a fan of the plot anyways, changing it was what I had in mind. :D But I only used the ark as an example of using something more ancient than what they ended up using. :)

I suppose it is refreshing. :) I've been personally kind of saturated with the whole Mayan (Incan?) (forgive me, I'm not an archaeological historian) theme and I still love all things Egyptian, so I wouldn't have minded a bit more of that.. with some more intellectual intrigue thrown in for good measure. But I still think that just throwing the ark in this movie just for the nostalgic kick was a rather silly move on their part if they weren't really going to use in further in the story. :)

Saw it last night. It was definitely old school. :jmp:

No too cool for you B.S. or loud rock music blasting during action scenes.

It was total classic Indiana Jones. There was CGI, but it didn't dominate the film. I expected Shia Labeouf to be a punk, but he was quite likable. I think he was the strongest character next to Indy. Having Karen Allen (Marion) back totally brought a legitimate tie to the Indiana Jones of old. I think my fav chase was between the KGB and Indy/son on the motorcycle around the campus. :jmp: And the ark joke at area 51 was great…along with the lost ark music. Dang it was good. Four stars from me. :D

I still want to see it. I will decide for myself! :D

Got the

- DK Ultimate Guide (very informative and I just got to the part about Indy's timeline, parents and his childhood. I don't even know there was once existed 'Young Indiana Jones'..and comics too? Nice..So many pictures,facts and information compiled into this book, I just love flicking through the pages and reading them. )

- The Complete Making of Indiana Jones (haven't read it yet but I'm sure it'll be awesome. :D I love looking things behind the scene, and it's heavily packed with hundreds of full color images - from storyboards, concept paintings,artworks, interviews, and set design schematics to still photos from the films including crystal skull. The book is heavy mind you, I had to use double paper bag to bring it home.)

- The Trilogy DVD metal bookset (I have the old vcd collection with me but I can see that the picture quality is grainy and the frame is cut, so some scene felt weird like Willy's face only half or off the camera view unlike it's dvd counterpart.Watched Temple of Doom on dvd last night and the picture quality was amazing! It's so clear and vivid. I heard people said they've done some necessary adjustment to some of the video aswell, like Raiders of the Lost Ark scene in the snake pit,where the cobra reflection on the protection glass in front of Indy was erased to make it more realistic and believable that Indy was facing it in the flesh).

plus I got a free gift: a movie pass for another round trip to see Crystal Skull. I really wanna see it again :jmp::jmp: but too busy at the moment and don't know when yet. :D I'll just go when I get a free time in the future.

It was OK... Just meh. 80 % CGI.

...Wish Shia LaBeouf had taken his shirt off..
Dramatical reasons only, of course!

i thought the hat scene at the end was pretty cool :D

nice one Indy :jmp:

Hehe, I think the cinema let out a sigh of relief when that final bit happened.
*Picks up hat*
"Don't you dare.. don't you dare put that on!.... Phew!"

I'm going to try and track down the trilogy on DVD soon... not the crap new one, but the old one. I've got the trilogy on video, so I think it's time for an upgrade. :p

I loved this movie. I sooo liked the bit with the fridge - when it comes out on DVD, I'll be playing that back over and over again.

I also think that for his age, Mr Ford is looking and doing great.

Some moviegoers didn't like the whole (couldn't do the highlight for spoilers text)- but I mean come on... In the last movie he had the Lost Ark of The Covenant with supernatural forces and all. Is it such a big leap (across a chasm)?

It's also really put me in the mood for the X files movie this July, as well as Lego Indiana Jones on PS3. I just wish they'd hurry up and announce the release date for the "normal" (non-lego) Indiana Jones on PS3 game... That's been in the pipeline since 2005!

The fact that Indy, like ALL action heros these days, is more terminator than man bothered me more than the whole ending of the movie...

He'd have been either dead or beaten all to hell by that refrigerator ride... no to mention countless other things inflicted on him or by him in the movie that everyone just shrugs off!

Well, the ending was too weird for my taste - which is kind of funny since I can somewhat identify with the religious quests of the first and third movie despite my personal beliefs. I guess I'm just not a sci-fi fan, and it's about the last thing I expect - and want - to see in an adventure series that was grounded in reality and common myths until now. The old movies had their what-the-heck moments as well, but this is the first one where I simply thought, no way.

Ford is great, though, as are LaBeouf (I usually detest sidekicks, BTW) and Allen. John Hurt and Cate Blanchett deserved better parts.

That fridge was lead-lined! LEAD-LINED!!! How could it NOT survive a nuclear blast?! :D :cln:

Come on, it's Indy! You have to admit it was a good scene, even despite (or maybe because of) the lack of logic. :)

Oh, I loved the movie, but things like that kind of take me out of the movie a little bit... don't even get me started on the uber-terminator chick in Die Hard 4! If you saw that movie you have to know what I mean! :rolleyes:

But, yeah, this Indy movie was great, all around. And there's apparently no role that Cate Blanchett cannot play! She's awesome.

I actually really liked it alot, I mean the whole Sci-Fi Thing fits with the time *spoiler*I mean right around that time, there were rumors of America finding aliens and stuff, so it fits well enough*spoiler*

At first I was like wth?

Then I fully thought about it and I loved it...

for the Indy films my top would go something like this:

1.Temple Of Doom
2.Raiders Of The Lost Ark
3.Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull
4.Last Crusade

:)

I am seeing again this weekend:p

I saw it tonight and I thought it sucked! It didn't feel like any of the Indy movies at all...

I was really disappointed.

Saw the movie yesterday. I liked it, it was good, but I the alien-related plot felt too un-Indy to me. It didn't really bother me, but it failed to catch my interest. It's a pity 'cause the legend of El Dorado is interesting.

I loved Indy himself, and even though I was expecting Shia LaBeouf to be extremely annoying but I ended up actually liking his character. And Mutt did more than being just a sidekick. He sure did kick some ass.
I guess I wouldn't really mind a Mutt Williams spin-off, after all (though I still wish they won't go there)...He needs a trademark hat, though.Like the one he wore at the beginning of the movie. Oh, and the bike and knife of course.

Cate Blanchett also ruled, but she totally needed more screentime. Marion was great, again. Ox was hilarious, I loved him.

The scene with fridge was a complete WTF!!11!! moment. Come one! So was the scene with Tarzan!Mutt. I thought the last sequence in the temple looked horribly CGI. Especially the water.

And finally... Ark of the Covenant cameo FTW! Loved that. In fact, at first I was convinced this what the whole scene was about and Indy was just trying to screw them over...I guess this was the whole point.
