I'M OFF to see Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull with my son and his buddy. I'll let you know what I think.

LATER - Initial reactions:

Many chase scenes. Maybe too many. Dialogue was too predictable, as was some of the action. We noticed a number of bits nicked from The Mummy Returns. Indy is still in good form, but the mileage shows. The consensus of the boys was that it was a good movie, but not such a good Indiana Jones movie. In any case it was unquestionably the silliest of the four, which took some doing. I liked the ending. Do see it: whatever the quality, it's a cultural icon. Three stars of five.
