Oh, thank God "Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull" (I reject the redundant words in that title) doesn't suck. That's been the real nailbiter for me over the summer. Considering I love all three of the entries for different reasons ("Raiders" is the best action film, "Temple" is the best pulp film and has the best setpieces, and "Crusade" is the funniest), I'll probably enjoy it. That is a relief beyond words!

Harrison Ford still has a long way to go to atone for fifteen years of bad movies. Now that he's 65 maybe he could lighten up and become an engaging character actor?

So far the people who matter seem to be the ones saying the best things about Indy 4. Looking good.

Forget Woody and and Indiana Jones 8, you've got me really interested in The Chaser, which I had never heard of. I gotta see this one.

What I find weird about this movie is the realization that the main character, were he real, would be dead right now.

the fourth Indy installment isn't really an attempt to retroactively create a Spielberg omniverse

I'm so torn. On one hand, I would hate for him to have an omniverse. On the other hand, why the hell HASN'T he tried that yet?

So, Glenn, you make The Chaser sound really intriguing, but you also say it is sunk by hammer violence.

Guess I'll have to see for myself.

I'm kind of surprised that the Woody Allen film isn't sunk by hammer violence. Doesn't one of the women inexplicably change from a seductive, witty, and worldly beauty into a shrill shrieking banshee who needs to be put down? I thought that happened in all of his films.

It's nice that Harrison Ford has finally stepped back into decent filmmaking, but what's with Woody Allen lately? A lesbian make-out scene to draw in crowds? ...I'm disappointed.

i keep imagining Cate Blanchett speaking English with a German accent in the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull even though she's supposed to be Russian
