Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

That is the title of the new Indiana Jones movie, which is going to be released into theatres on May 22, 2008.

I love Indiana Jones.  I even loved the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles.  The character of Indiana Jones resonates with everything I wanted to be when I was growing up: He’s a dashing scoundrel, he’s well educated, he gets all the chicks.  To me, Indy was always about three orders of magnitude cooler than James Bond, and I still believe that Indiana Jones would beat the hell out of Bond in a fight.

I am optimistic about this movie.  After the horror that the Star Wars prequels visited upon my poor, nerdy soul; I still cling to the belief that my childhood heroes are just as amazing now as they were when I was a child.  I really hope this movie is as amazing as I’m hoping.

  1. what gives me hope is that spielberg is more interested in telling a good story while developing good characters than he is about merchandising the franchise a la Lucas.

    After suffering through Episodes 6, 1, and 2, I swore I’d spend another nickel on Lucas’ merchandising campaign. But, my nephew made or convinced me to give Ep 3 a chance when he received the Sith DVD for xmas, and I have to admit, it was pretty good.
