Summary: A Great Addition To The Indy Legacy
Comment: Loved it! Every bit as good as the first and third movies, and better than the second. Action, adventure, humor and a terrific mix of actors joining Indy and his fedora. I'll watch it again and again. A+++

Summary: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (Single Disc)
Comment: A typical, entertaining Indiana Jones adventure, but without the full zing, coherence and cliffhanger story that previous ones had.

Summary: I liked it
Comment: Some like blonds and some like red heads. Some like a women fat and others skinny. Some like FORD WHEN HE WAS YOUNG, but he is older and he can not stop that. NO this film was not like the first, but I liked it.

I buy a lot of movies since I am old and can't do much else... So for all those who did not care for this film, it is just another Indy film with an older star.

Summary: Major Disappointment! (D Grade)
Comment: Famed archaeologist/adventurer Dr. Henry "Indiana" Jones is called back into action when he becomes entangled in a Soviet plot to uncover the secret behind mysterious artifacts known as the Crystal Skulls. The year is 1957 and Dr. Jones is being framed. He along with a spunky young man must travel to some dangerous places where no one comes out alive. The Crystal Skull may be something not human and it is up to Indy and his new sidekick, Mutt (spunky young man), to find the answers.

What is up with Harrison Ford? I know the guy is older and near retirement age, but this is not the Indy I has grown to love! Harrison acted like he was sleepwalking through the role. Can we say zombie? There was no trademark Indy wit or one-liners I was so use to hearing. He looked so bored and I came to the conclusion in the first five minutes that this would be a major bomb. And you would think with such Oscar winning power with Cate Blanchett as a villain, she would be so evil and diabolical that she would put all other past Indy villains to shame? Not here!! It was like Speilberg asked Cate to forget everything she has ever learned about acting that has made her into the thespian she is and throw all that out the window for his movie. She was annoying and such a cartoon character that I was hoping she would fall into quicksand.

There are some other well known actors that pop up that act are just as bad as the rest, One such character is a surprise from Indy's past who is somewhat of a welcome relief to this snore fest. As for Shia LeBeouf, he is a cute kid and has potential. I feel Speilberg is grooming him much like Leonardo DiCaprio is from Scorsese. Shia did bring some life into certain scenes, but overall not even his cutesy antics could save this train wreck of a movie.

I also expected E.T. to come out of the Amazon jungle looking to phone home. Yup, Indy and his crew along with the evil Russians (it is the 1950's after all) are on the search for aliens.

In a nut shell that is my review. Sorry, it is a bit scathing but I am mourning the loss of a great character and a trilogy that took over a whole decade and set the standard for a blockbuster. This is a slap in the face to the fans, like myself.

2 Big Blows Monkey Chunks thumbs down. Wait for DVD, better yet cable.
