There were tons of “old” jokes about Indiana. WE KNOW HARRISON FORD IS NOT A YOUNG BUCK ANYMORE! So much of it felt so forced and campy. The plot line jumped the shark, too. Instead of relying on true Indiana Jones-esque relic-hunting, and instead of having a good revelation of the truth behind the relic, the writers played on curiousity about aliens. It was just strange. The movie was cheesy. Wait until it comes out on DVD and Netflix this one if you haven’t already wasted your $10 on a movie ticket. Better yet, wait until it’s released on TV.
We also saw I Am Legend this weekend through Comcast OnDemand. This was a much more entertaining film. I kept jumping out of my skin since I knew relatively little about the film prior to watching it. I stayed spoiler free and enjoyed it. It was one of those artsy, not-happy-but-not-unhappy ending movies. Mostly I think it was kind of sad.
I have a student who watched this movie and then watched a
“documentary” on the Discovery channel about what would happen if the world ended by the year 2012. She is convinced that what she saw on Discovery channel is actual truth. She’s had panic attacks because of it.
