Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008)

Indy is back after a hiatus roughly as long as Battlestar Galactica’s mid-season break.

The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull?  More like Indiana Jones – Fight the Future, am I right?

By the way, if you don’t get that reference, don’t look it up – it’s a bit of a spoiler.  Which I don’t think matters too terribly, because the whole movie stunk of foreshadowing.  Indy’s enemy packs a sword, so when Indy’s sidekick The Kid mentions studying fencing at school, what were we meant to guess was coming?  Here’s a hint, The Kid has a sword fight with her.  Even with your eyes squeezed tight shut you’ll see them coming.

It was a fun movie and given the reviews, better than I expected.  I think the reviews are mostly bad because it’s just so incredibly weird.  But there you go.
