I am so disappointed. I waited and waited and waited to see the new Indy. I missed watching it in the theater due to one thing or another going on at that time. I was looking forward to this day for so long and was so excited on Monday when in my inbox I saw the message from Netflix “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull will arrive on or around Wed Oct, 15” I only had to wait 2 more days to see my beloved Indy!!
It arrived yesterday, but because I took the Muncher to visit his Omi I didn’t get to the mail until today. I couldn’t eat dinner fast enough. I just wanted to start up the ole DVD player. The popcorn was made, Muncher was laid to breast for his supper and the family was ready for a night in front of the boob tube.
The movie started out very Indiana – and then something happened. It got to be a little over the top – ok…. I would let that slide because what is Indy if not a little over the top. Even in his younger days he was just that, though this was just a notch higher. It went back to be very Indiana again and I was happy once more. But then…. it got worse, and I won’t ruin it for those of you who haven’t seen it yet but still want to by telling you what happened (those of you that have seen the movie know). Imho it just got terrible. I couldn’t believe the twist the movie took, I remember now that I had heard a rumor about it way back when, but I didn’t want to believe it. But it’s true.
I’m so disappointed. I want to watch the original just to get the horridness out of my head. (Ok so that’s not a word – sue me) – How… Why… What in earth possessed them…. the words fail me. Ugh
