Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Synopsis

On May 22, Indiana Jones is back in a new globe-trotting adventure, "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull." Directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Harrison Ford as Indy, "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" features an outstanding cast, including Oscar® winner Cate Blanchett, Karen Allen, Ray Winstone, John Hurt, Oscar® winner Jim Broadbent and Shia LaBeouf. Frank Marshall is the film’s producer. George Lucas and Kathleen Kennedy are the executive producers. The screenplay is by David Koepp from a story by George Lucas and Jeff Nathanson.


It’s been rumored, run around, and re-scripted more times than I care to count, but we’re finally actually getting an Indiana Jones 4. The question is will it be the movie everyone hopes for?

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull has an almost impossible legacy to live up to, following up on perhaps the most beloved movie trilogy of all time… excepting those pesky Star Wars movies which also starred that guy with the whip and Fedora. The 80s were a good time for blockbuster movies, and nothing epitomizes that better than the adventures of Doctor Jones, a perennial product of the 80s, with the movies running in sequence from 1981, to 1984, and finishing up in 1989. Unlike a lot of the films of that decade though, Indy is timeless adventure. It holds up. It’s not Weird Science, full of legwarmers and the excessive drinking of Tab. Bringing Indy into the new millennium should be a snap.

Besides, Steven Spielberg isn’t in the habit of letting people down. Unfortunately his producing partner George Lucas is. Lucas managed to botch Star Wars with his prequels, and most of the blame for that probably goes to his writing. A lot of people worry about Indy 4 because of Harrison’s age, but if you want to worry about something worry about George, who’s rumored to have taken the script home with him for a few Lucas brand rewrites. You never know when he might write in a cameo for the Backstreet Boys.

Still, I defy Lucas to ruin this. Spielberg might kowtow to his friend, but the notoriously cranky Harrison Ford would never let Flannel George take Doctor Jones off the rails. Give the man his whip, and let him work. As long as Harrison is under the hat and Callista Flockhart is kept off the set, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull can’t go wrong.

Reel Physics analyzed the scene and came to the conclusion that Jones actually could have survived the blast if he in fact stashed his arthritic body in a lead-lined fridge. Their theory also takes into account the weight of the appliance, which would contribute to the forces that would help Jones survive the blast and the toss....

Must Watch: 70-Minute Take Down Of Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull Must Watch: 70-Minute Take Down Of Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull
The thing that's so great about these reviews (and the reason why we keep posting them) is because they're not only intelligent breakdowns of disappointing films, but they also happen to be incredibly funny. The 70-minute runtime of this review is daunting, and I can imagine that some people will think that they won't be able to sit through the whole thing, but trust me when I say that it's really worth it....

Of course, saying that George Lucas is the storyteller of the Indiana Jones series is patently ridiculous-- Indy is going to figure prominently in only one man's Oscar montage when he dies, and I think we all know that's Spielberg. It seems mighty disingenuous that he gives so much power to Lucas...
