Followed by "Indiana Jones and the Popquiz of Doom!!!1112" and "Indiana Jones and the Last Term Paper".

IJ&TKOTCS: A couple of problems here and there, but overall more hits than misses. I had a great time watching it. Even the romantic subplot was good (though I could've lived without the wedding), must be Allen and Spielberg's doing, because Lucas and romance, well....

Could've used a better opening, preferably a cold opening like Raiders without any tie in with the main plot (Mac could easily betray Indy in some other way), because the Roswell body had zero impact. Definitely lose the Tarzan scene. And cast someone else as the FBI agent than Neil Flynn. Not because there's anything wrong with Flynn as an actor, just that during the entire scene I kept waiting for Indy to tilt his head and have an inner monologue: "I knew the Agent had just threatened my carrier, but I couldn't help feel that someday we would solve our differences over an appletini and pancakes... I love pancakes, I should ask Turk to make them every morning...."

I liked the references to Indy getting older, might as well play with it than against it (again I'm giving Spielberg and Ford credit, because Lucas and reality, well....), the jungle chase although it could've benefited if it was shot as a straight action scene with sarcastic remarks, than a slightly silly "changing places" sketch (still doesn't hold a candle to the truck chase in Raiders ), the nod to Denholm Elliot, the entire 50s atmosphere on campus and a bunch of other things. Also nice to hear Indy haven't lost his dry wit (I guess I have to give part credit to Lucas, but you know...).

Final grade: 10 on the Danish scale, which translates to B+

A cold opening would've been preferable. It seemed like it jumped into the main action way too fast. Perhaps something where he works with a German to show a transition from the early movies where the Germans were evil and set up the movie for the 1950's. Would've liked it more than Even More American Grafitti.

It kinda does. After he gets fired he mentions that he might take a job in Leipzig.

Sadly, I just saw Crystal Skulls for a third time.

Next time I have sex with Cate Blanchett I'm gonna make her do the Russian Accent.
