Indiana Jones and the what?

Recently, I watched Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull on Blu-Ray. This was the second movie I've watched on the PS3. Overall it was decent. I wasn't sure what to expect going in, as it had a lot of potential to be awful.

The picture was very good, in fact too good sometimes. There were scenes where it really felt like I was seeing the set. It is hard to describe, but it is good and bad. Sound was good too.

**Spoiler Warning***

The plot for me was just too far out there. I know that Raiders, temple and crusade were pretty crazy too, but for some reason those felt more grounded. This one just seemed a bit too much. Add in the fact that Dr. Jones had seen the aliens before? Eh.

The communists make a pretty decent enemy, so no real complaints there. His greaser son? Well, it could have been a lot worse I guess. Having Marion back was fine. Ford is just looking old though, especially in HD. So overall, not bad, not good. It is definitely not in the same league as the first three installments.


Movie sucked. Was one of the biggest wastes of cash I had last summer up there with Mummy 3.

I thought all the Mummy's were awful. Maybe it is just Brendan Frasier.

I agree that it wasn't my fave. It felt like Disney made it almost, it was so cheesy. Still, my girlfriend liked it and my mom so maybe I'm just missing something or thinking too much. Some movies get ruined if you think about them too much.
