It’s Indy week. Can you believe it?
It’s nearly been 20 years since The Last Crusade graced the screens.
That said… I have to say a few things.
I’m looking forward to this film. Unfortunately I will not see it on opening day due to the fact that my youngest is having her tonsils removed that day. However, I will probably see it on Friday or Saturday and post my review after that.
So of the three prior movies of the adventures of Dr. Jones, I would have to say that Raiders of the Lost Ark is my favorite, followed by Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and lastly Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. Doom just never did anything for me. But Raiders epitomizes the best of all adventure movies. Humor, excitement, danger, explosions, ancient Egypt, and bad dates. 🙂
I’m hoping that Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull comes anywhere close to Raiders, but will be happy if it’s in the same league as The Last Crusade. Temple of Doom was more than a little disappointing for me, so if it stoops that low, I’ll be very disappointed.
Music-wise, I was stoked to hear that John Williams will once again be scoring Indy’s travels. Raiders has such an iconic theme that it would be tough to envision anyone else doing the soundtrack.
Of the Indy movies, what was your favorite? Let me know!
