Madex Movie Review: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Its fun when a movie comes along that you want to stay up to 3am watching. Indiana Jones came out last night, and I went with Ktlau, Bumps, Worst Case Kevin and patBenatard down to the Vista in Silverlaket midnight last night to see the new film starring, Harrison “What are you like 80?” Ford. This film was every bit as one dimensional as the first 3 films. Serial action, comedy romps through the jungle. As the film started, when the Lucas Films logo came on, a man yelled from his inner childhood, “DON’T FUCK THIS UP LUCAS!!!!” Which set the tone for the rest of the night. I liked it, it pushed every fun blockbuster button there was. Not one of the bizzillion bullets fired hit anyone, 300 ft water falls were mere water slides and a punch to the face was like walk in the park. The film introduces Mudd Wilson, who for the most part I wish had more lines, near the end of the film he didn’t talk much, I liked him as a wordy tough boy kid he started out as. The film does go way out on a limb and for that its fun, one of the best scenes involves a quiet fake 50′s town that get a visit from an H bomb. Plus, you’ll pee yourself when the true treasure is reveled.
I give it 5 out of 5 madex’s for blockbuster 2008 thrill ride. I laughed, I screamed, I lauged even harder at the end, WTF.

This film will make you feel like the X-files film came early, like 60 years early.


“Does my costume make me look fat?”

We witnessed a super fan on the sidewalk, PatBenatard was brave enough to take a photo with him.

    5 out of 5? How much vicodin did you take? Did you miss the whole swinging on the vines in the jungle? Did you not see him walking away from a nuclear bomb exploding on his head? Maybe I’m just pissed b/c I really really really hate aliens and I had to look away for half the movie. I’m pathetic a grown man scared of aliens, what is wrong with me?

    I saw the movie at the Long Beach Town Center with Heavy K and Rocky.

    Oh I saw the monkeys with elvis hair cuts, and I laughed as he swung, that is what those films are about, the total ridiculousness.

    ROFL, wtf. All I can say is wow. The film was fun, but the whole sci fi element was way over the top.

    I really wish directors would stop relying on special effects to “help” a movie. What made the original so much fun was the story and effects, but it never seemed like a video game. Everything in this movie seemed like an xbox game that I wouldn’t know how to figure out.
