Indy's Back!

If you're into history, archeology, whips and daring acts (despite the CG).. let's count the days..

Having been counting many days before Harrison Ford's come back in Indiana Jones and the Alien Skulls (oops.. I mean "The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull"), despite the must-have elements of Indy's swashbuckling adventure i.e. bugs, snakes, crawlees, luck factor and deep secrets plus secret codes, the whole thing was kinda embarrassing and disappointing. I didn't complain about Ford's age and performance. Actually, he performed well and Kate Blanchett should make her accent coach happy. There has been enough going on in Hollywood on Mayan culture and the intervention of so-called alien culture (see: the latest sequel of "National Treasure: Book of Secrets" (2007))

One pretty interesting fact though..the "skull reading" scene in Indy's Crystal Skull reminds me a lot of Haruki Murakami's "Hardboiled Wonderland and the End of the World" (it's a novel, not a movie). Interesting, ey?
