Indiana Jones can still sling a whip :3



~Cate Blanchett's accent is rofl worthy
~Indiana survives a nuclear bomb blast! x3
~Indy still hates snakes
~Mutt is Indy's son (who didn't see that one coming?)
~The crystal skull belongs to inter-dimensional aliens
~Movie was like Mummy 2 and all other alien movies (M2: the pyramid collapses on itself)
~Indy marries Marion! She makes an honest archaeologist of him (married Indy!? NOES!!!!)

Overall, I liked the movie. I thought it was a bit...cliche but I did love it. All the little tributes to the earlier movies, the building they kept all the stuff in and the glimpse of the Ark are just a few. I wibbled a bit when we found out that Indy's dad and Marcus were dead. I expected it but I still wibbled.
Despite some of the silly parts, it really was an awesome movie. I'm glad that Spielberg and Lucas didn't butcher Indiana Jones. Even though Lucas and Spielberg are geniuses, I was afraid that 20 years between fedoras would blur their vision for classic Jones. I'm glad that my worries were for naught. I gotta tell you, I was worried about cheesy spin-offs when Mutt picked up Indy's fedora. I breathed a sigh of relief when it's rightful owner took it, no Mutt Jones & The Island of the Greasers for us! Thank god xD

A rofl movie but I recommend it, it was really good.



A rant post to come a bit later.

The trailers were...meh. I am so excited for Get Smart but..honestly, and I know some of you will disagree with me, but...I could care less about Wall-E. I can't stand that animation, it's taking over traditional animation. Now, I know PIXAR is basically 100% of this stuff, and that's fine for them I guess. It's taking over everywhere else though. 90% of animated movies are in that media and the 10% that are traditional...well..they suck. I rarely see these types of movies, it really has to catch my eye and WALL-E didn't. I like robots and I like sci-fi movies but that movie really doesn't intrigue me. Neither does Kung-Fu Panda, that one just looks really stupid.

Next midnight movie: X-FILES!!!

Current Mood: rejuvenated Indy's still sexy, even old
Current Music: NOTHING!

Aw, I'm excited for Wall-E. I know what you mean about CGI movies taking over but Pixar always makes ones that don't leave me disappointed. I remember I thought Cars looked soooo stupid at first but I saw it an loved it XP

I give Pixar the benefit of the doubt since they're known for unique stories. If my friends say it's good, I might give it a shot. Meh, I didn't care for Cars. It wasn't horrible but...yeah. Haha

I am looking forward to Get Smart - loved the original.

I'm ambivalent about Wall-E - I like it in the previews when he's playing w/the paddle-ball but am really not sure what the purpose of the movie actually is.

I didn't see a Get Smart preview! :( :( And I'm so looking forward to that. I saw Kung Fu Panda, Wall-E, Batman, Hancock, Hellboy, and some thriller I can't remember the name of. Kung Fu Panda doesn't look too awful, but not something I'm seeing in theaters. I think Wall-E looks cute, and the others will likely be seeing in theaters - 'cept the thriller, wasn't really like "oh my god need to see!" - Did you see a preview for The City of Ember?

I don't think so. I saw the previews for Wall-E, Panda, Hellboy, Get Smart, some movie about this guy being framed a group "choosing him", and The Curious Case of somebody (Brad Pitt movie).

The movie about being framed is another Shia movie. It's called Eagle Eye. And the other one is The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

There's another Hellboy movie? Or did you mean The Hulk?

Huh, I didn't know they were making another one. Interesting. I haven't heard anything about it or seen any previews. I shall have to keep a look out next time I go to the cinema. Unfortunately, no new movies come out that I want to see until June. :(


EDIT: Oh, I found it on IMDB. Weird, it's coming out pretty soon, I would have thought the trailer would have been on the television by now. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0411477/

I want to see Get Smart but I can wait. I heard that the teaser for HBP might be before Get Smart. If it is, I might see it sooner ;)
I can't really think of anything in June I want to see of the top of my head. I want to see The Journey to the Center of the Earth. Brendan Fraser! I just hope they don't butcher that classic!
The next movie I'm seeing at midnight though, isn't until July! *points to icon*

Hellboy

Even though I read the script and am not impressed with the ending, I want to see The Happening. And even though I totally hate The Hulk (worst comic book character ever) I still want to see the new movie and I know my friends will drag me. They both come out June 13th which is the day after my lasik so I don't know if I'll get to see them on their first day or not. I kind of want to see Get Smart but I don't like the actor so I'm still up in the air about it. I want to see the Center of the Earth too, mainly because of Brendan Fraser, though I'm sick of all the remakes they're doing of the book (aren't there like two or three movies now?). I'm surprised a Land of the Lost or whatever that other book was hasn't been remade yet (I can never remember the name but it usually goes hand in hand on television when they play Center of the Earth).

And yes, totally CAN NOT WAIT for X-Files.

Don't tell me the ending or anything of The Happening (I forgot about that movie, that's one I want to see). What's the premise? Supernatural or something? I <3 M. Night.

I don't like the actor of Get Smart either, but I looove the show. I might put up with him just for the movie.

I adore Fraser which is why I'm giving the movie a shot. I hate it too, stop making re-makes! For that matter, stop making sequels! Mummy 3 looks stupid, they should have ended it at M2. Are you tlaking about Lost World? I think that's what it's called, because I always associate the title with the second Jurassic Park movie :)

When I first heard that it was official for a new X-Files movie, I screamed. My neighbor came by and thought I was injured.
"Are you okay?! Do you have to go to the hospital?"
"Uh...sorry. I just found out that there's going to be another X-Files."
"O.o"

Um, I guess it's kind of supernatural. I can't really get into detail without giving away a huge spoiler. I mean, it's a cool idea and all, but reading it it sounded dumb. I still have hope that actually SEEING it will be different and make it a lot cooler. He makes some of my favorite movies so I'm still giving it some hope.

Yeah, Lost World. I thought Land of the Lost because I was like "Wait...no...Lost World is the Jurassic Park movie..." hahaha. That and I think they used to have a TV show called Land of the Lost that for some reason I always confuse with it. And yes...Mummy 3...I have no words. Same with Jurassic Park 4...no words at all.

And if you want to know something funny about the X-Files, there are two episodes I've missed and never been able to catch on reruns. 1. the very last episode, for some reason I missed it, I don't remember the details 2. the episode were Mulder was supposed to find out about his sister, the freaking power went out during the last half of it. It depresses me because it'll be forever before I can afford all of the box sets. No one has ever been able to tell me the spoilers to them.

AH, ok. Yeah I loved Signs, Sixth Sense, and The Village :)

Land of the Lost was a 60\70s show. I have some of it on tape, I was a fan as a kid.

I swear, I will not see JP4 if it's that ridiculous plot they mentioned. I just pray that it's a wicked rumor!

I think Netflix has the X-files. If you want, I can tell you about those two episodes. I don't remember the sister one too much, I can jog my memory if I figured out the season and I re-watched the series finale last week :3

Do you happen to remember which season it was where the sister thing happens? That way I can know which one to get from Netflix. Otherwise, you can just tell me, I don't mind. It's more for my Mum's sake than mine, she keeps asking me like every day "Did you ask so and so about that episode yet?" because she knows I have a few friends who are total X-Files junkies.

Hmmm, I'm trying to think of the sister episode you mean. I know there's one that involves bees and crops like in the movie. *looks it up*
That episode is in season 4, it's called Herrenvolk.
Then there's the 5th season episode "Redux II" that also involves CSM.
Lastly, there's the season 7 episode "Closure" that involves Mulder going through hypnosis. Im' mentioning these small plot points to find out which ones you haven't seen :P Then I could tell you what disc they are on (I have the seasons) or just tell you about the episode.
I'm a massive X-Files junkie :D

Did you see the Twilight Teaser Trailer? Supposedly, it's playing in some theatres before Indy and before Narnia. I'm seeing both this weekend.

Also, I hate that animation too and I'm terrified of robots.

I didn't. I only saw one great trailer and one decent one. I didn't even see the Dark Knight trailer! Lame!

I overlook the animation if the plot catches my eye, I did enjoy Finding Nemo. I do hate the way the people look in those movies though, terrifying! Aww, you are? What about R2-D2?

Yes, even R2-D2. Things that could possibly be real really freak me out. Like horror movies about religious stuff and cults and whatnot. Seriously, they have me sleeping with my bible for days sometimes even weeks. I actually almost cried during iRobot and had to sleep with a night light for like a month.

They already said Shia would be Indy's son years ago...it was kind of a duh for me...
Also it's MUTT not Mudd...like a dog...it's a joke since Indy named himself after the family dog...
Supposedly they have been working on this movie since the late 80's, they couldn't all agree on the storyline that's why it took so long to come out...
I LOVE LOVE that snake scene except they misidentified the snake and THAT PISSED ME OFF. There is no way in HELL that's a rat snake...they are only in the USA and Asia and don't get THAT long or that fat...I get mad, they have the money and time to research an appropriate Amazonian type snake yet they just wing it...LAME times a million. Also Army ants don't act like that, DER.
Well Sean Connery would not come out of retirement, so they had to do something...
Actually Shia and Harrison were on TRL and talking about how Shia WILL be taking over the franchise eventually, Harrison is getting too old...
Wall-E looks super cute, Dan thinks it will be dumb as well...I plan to see it anyway...
Get Smart looks AWESOME, can't wait...I loved show so much when I was younger...
Kung Fu Panda looks SO CUTE!!! :)

I was tired and wired, so I made some mistakes (like, the movie being Mummy 2 and I said Mummy 3)
They could have used an anaconda, rofl. I know he wouldn't, I was still sad that his character died.

Ugh, I heard a few days after seeing it that he would take over it. I don't know if I'll see those movies.

I'm excited for Get Smart.

Well there IS a Mummy 3 it's just not out yet...;)
Well an anaconda is super aggressive so of course it would have been even MORE stupid. But a RAT SNAKE????? WTF!! I see those all the time, they don't get more than 3 feet and like a few inches in circumference...I was just appalled that's all...
Well his character HAD to die, or how else would the explain why he wasn't there? You know?
I think I will, Harrison will most likely be in them, just not the headliner....
I am too! :)
