Upon further review…

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull sucks. Yes, I tried to deny it, and I don’t feel bad for having liked it so much because I was seeing it Wednesday at Midnight and Thursday at 1pm. Completely swept up in the opening weekend. I liked it better the second time, both times seeing it with people I was excited to share the experience with. But last night my Boss and L.A. Ray and Tommy P’s sister all went to go see it. I was game, after all, I liked it. But now divorced of the opening weekend hype, yeah, it’s pretty bad. But in the end I never regret creating impossible expectations, that’s the fun of Summer. In the end I watched the first three Indiana Jones movies about four or five times a piece (thank you ipod nano video), and don’t regret it for a second. I love all that opening weekend hype. But yeah, it’s all digital and greenscreen, it’s a cartoon. There’s a parts I still love, but there was no denying it last night. “Wow, this movie’s really bad.”
