INDY 4: The Spoiler-filled review

I kid, I kid.

Well, mostly. I'll talk about PARTS of the movie, but not name anything specifically.

It has it's entertaining moments, but it's still a bit 'eh'. Let's just say I enjoyed Live Free or Die Hard (Die Hard 4) more. Lucas even made a crack that their movie wouldn't have fighter jets in it like SOME sequels, and then did something even more ridiculous and overblown. Actually, 2. Kind of bookends. The character of Marion Ravenwood was NOT Marion Ravenwood. Think Lois Lane in Superman Returns. Just not the character. Good writing can save bad actors, but good actors can't save bad writing.

That aside, there are some fun action sequences, the "creature" scene was pretty entertaining, there's some good jokes and gags, but a lot of forced ones as well. And there are some STUPID 'Lucas-ized' CGI crap, a la Jar Jar Binks and podraces. But not quite as much, so yo only roll your eyes about 25-30% of the movie.

And ending #1 is like a video game cut scene where everyone is just watching and not doing much and Ending #2 is just more 'eh'.

Plus, elements from the beginning, featuring a 'Scrubs' cameo, are all super-important and then disappear, never to return again.

All those Temple of Doom haters will probably wish Indy had gone back to, well, India.

Iron Man is still ruling the summer. Will he be dethroned?!

Dude, the mYstEriOus Crystal Skull looked like a bong stuffed with saran wrap.

I'm not hating on the movie overall, I'm just saying - if they can turn a car into a robot, they should be able to make a giant skull look halfway interesting.

Did you know that you can swing through the jungle on vines quicker than you can drive through the jungle? And that surviving Angel Falls is as easy as just holding your breath? Yippee!!

But for sure don't try to develop agriculture by yourself. Humans aren't s-m-r-t enough.
