Now that you've seen it, what did you think? Here it is, after 19 years of waiting, Indiana Jones is finally back. But does he still kick ass? Is he too old to even fight? There are so many questions to be answered! And now that it has finally hit theaters, it's time to start the discussion. Was Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull all that good? How did it compare to the original three films? Was it entertaining and fun or just downright boring and flawed? Be prepared for one hell of a discussion, because not only is this film going to polarize viewers, but almost everyone will have something to say about it - good or bad! Are you ready? Warning: spoilers may be found within!
To fuel the fire, I'm sure all of you have already read my 8.5 out of 10 review and know what I thought, but after a second viewing last night, I've got to say it lost its glamour. I was definitely caught up in the hype the first time I saw it, and the second time around it just didn't play nearly as well. While I did think it was very fun, very entertaining, and did maintain the spirit of the originals, I really think the writing was pretty bad and the story begins to fall apart near the end. Plus, as creepy and cool as aliens are, there really was not satisfying conclusion. Where did they go? What the heck just happened?
What did you think of Indiana Jones 4? The best or the worst of the four films?
