Hmmmm… OK… Indiana Jones… You know, it wasn’t the worst movie I have ever seen. I am not going to come out and say that it was great either… I attempted to go in with NO expectations and realized that Lucas and Spielberg would add a shit ton of really distracting special effects that do not fit with any of the previous films… I came to terms with that fact and of course that is EXACTLY what they did in several instances, but In other moments, camera shots and dialogue I felt very pleased and happy. I actually found myself smiling and laughing out loud at several moments… Honestly though, I didn’t really “get” all of the plot points and thought the whole thing was much to complicated for an Indiana Jones film.

Good things about the film:
– Camera shots and colors felt right
– Costumes
– Humor
– LOTS of Indiana Jones “run (or drive) like hell” moments

… I am sitting here and can not really think of any other good things to say about the movie. Maybe I thought it sucked but I am too attached to admit it? … Hmmmm…. I don’t think that’s it… What I think I liked the most about it was that it was Indi-fucking-ana JONES.

One piece of advise: If you go see the film do not expect it to be as good as “Raiders” or “Crusade” because if you do you are going to HATE it… This rings especially true for all of you people out there that hated the new Star Wars movies. I am going to write a long post bagging on you people someday!

You are all going to vote right? Please vote… and if it’s not too much trouble vote for Obama… Listen, I know that the Republican candidate is not the DEVIL himself this time. I know that if you are reading this you probably grew up in the midwest and it feels nice to vote Republican… I UNDERSTAND. I really do! Just do me a favor, read over ALL (Yes ALL) the issues from MULTIPLE (more than one) sources and just give him a chance.

I am sure that you will see a story on CNN announcing that I have officially endorsed Barrack Obama later today… NO, I am NOT a superdelegate, but I AM super-awesome and have quite a bit of pull in Washington.

You have not heard the last on this subject

    Joe,

    Just saw Indiana Jones. I was mildly entertained. I won’t compare it to other Indy or even Star Wars movies, despite my urge. But either I wasn’t sophisticated enough to know bad writing and a shit plot when I was loving Temple of Doom and Return of the Jedi, or George Lucas has totally lost it. Now he’s bringing Spielberg down with him. SS — it “rocked?” — you’re joking. Right?
