The good news: Indy 4
is more satisfying that Star Wars: Episode 1
. And it's better than Temple of Doom
, even though I still like Temple of Doom
In many ways, it's getting the band back together for a reunion tour. It's a lot of fun and if you take it for the nostalgia value, it's a lot of fun. They're not reinventing the wheel here. You're going to hear a lot of your old favorites and, sure, the guys all look a bit older, but that said I still had a good time seeing the movie.
It does get off to a slow start, but man the iconic image of Indy putting on the hat that was in the trailer....if that doesn't give you goosepimples, then maybe you need to go and see the new Ashton Kutcher film. Oh wait...don't. I want to stop encouraging Hollywood to make movies with him in them. Seriously, America, help me out here.
Anyway, I saw it, I liked it and it's another quality summer blockbuster. That puts me at two for two this summer and I've enjoyed both. From what I've read, you either love Indy 4
or you hate. Put me in the love it camp and ready to add it to the other movies in the DVD collection...
