Indiana Jones and the...wait, what was that again? Seriously? No really, did that actually just happen?
Saw the new Indy movie on Saturday after work. I'm not going to spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it yet. For those who have, leave a comment about what you thought about the ending.
Overall, I thought it was a standard Indiana Jones movie. My favorite thing about it is that they keep it realistic about Indy's age. The movie takes place years later, in 1958. Indy is older and it's part of the story. Don't worry, he's still the same guy, it just takes him a bit longer to get up after taking a punch.
Shia LeBeouf does a pretty good job to counteract the worst performance of Cate Blanchett's career. She may just be too serious of an actress for this movie. An Indy movie is supposed to be a bit overdone and goofy. Not really her style.
You may be able to tell from the title that I had a few issues with the crystal skull thing. I'll let you make up your own mind about the ending. I guess my biggest problem with it was that I saw it coming a mile away even though the movie tried to play it up as a big suprise.
If you've seen it, leave a comment. I want to know what other people think.
