Indiana Jones & The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008)

Cinema: Golden Screen (GSC) at Mid Valley
Event: HwangDBS Investment Management Family

Directed by Steven Speilberg, and written by George Lucas (and Jeff Nathanson), AND starring Harrison Ford. Nuff said!? :-) Also features Cate Blanchett as Irina Spalko, Karen Allen as Marion Ravenwood, Shia LaBeouf as Mutt Williams and John Hurt as Professor 'Ox' Oxley.

I was really excited about this film as it was my FIRST Indiana Jones film which I have ever enjoyed in the cinema, in the first 3 pieces of the saga, I had watched it on television, video-tape (Yes, VHS!), and laser-disc (Nope, NOT DVD, but the older laser-disc format!) ... First, I have to say how NICE the seats are at the GSC in Mid Valley. Probably my favourite cinema in town at the moment!

This also happened to be Baby J's first trip to the cinema :-) Thanks again to Dau for taking us to the pictures!

It has been 19 years since the appearance of this much-loved archeologist-cum adventurer aka Indiana Jones ! I can still get the sense of nostalgia and feel of the old Indy films, but it has been updated beautifully in terms of production values and special effects, without losing the charm. The cheesy-factor has also been kept to 'just enough' quantities, such as the use of Indy's world-famous and much-recognised hat, as well as his whip, and the one-liners are just enough.

Overall... highly entertaining!

Cool quotes?
Mac: This ain't gonna be easy.
Indiana Jones: Not as easy as it used to be.
Mutt Williams: You're a *teacher*?
Indiana Jones: Part time.
