You Might Want to Do Something Else With Your Nine Dollars

Kevin and I were so excited to get to go see the new Indiana Jones movie tonight. We love the original movies and own them on DVD. So, we thought, bring on the nostalgia!

Boy were we disappointed.

The movie was bad on so many levels. The first three movies were campy and fun--not exactly believable, but not so over the top as to be aggravating. This one tried way too hard to be campy, and it was just plain silly, predictable, and even the acting wasn't great. I cannot figure out what induced Harrison Ford and Cate Blanchett to embarrass themselves by agreeing to do this film. Just in case you plan on seeing this movie, I won't go into the plot. But, before you go, lower your expectations.

That might help.

This is a very well-written review. I think you may have a money maker to work on in all that spare time you have! You truly are the best writer of any blog I visit.

Wow! What a nice comment! I will go see if Kevin can deflate my head now. :)

Good to know, we were talking about going and seeing it. I might have to rethink it, now... :)
