Last night I watched Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. For like the 20th time.
Unlike most people in the world (so it seems), I like the movie, and don’t understand why it’s received so much hate over the past dozen years. Honestly I think it’s as good or better than the second one, and closer to the original trilogy than it gets credit for; it’s no Phantom Menace.
Hard to believe it’s been 12 years since the movie premiered. It was May 22, 2008, and I was putting down a few bucks that evening towards its eventual take of $790 million. Not adjusted for inflation it’s actually the highest grossing Indy film.
Until the fifth one, of course, now slated to premiere July 29, 2022.
I’ve already taken that day off from work.
