Indiana Jones and the Kingdon of the Crystal Skull


As you all now i'm a HUGE Shia Labeouf fan so I will attempt to review the new installment of Indiana Jones with a honest and hopefully unbiased opinion. I'd also like to mention i've also grown up watching the other Indiana Jones movies so I was excited for this movie anyway and the fact that Shia was in it was just a HUGE bonus.
This film is what many of you would call 'cheesy', unrealistic and maybe even a tad predictable, however this is not a film that should be judged by normal standards this is Indiana Jones after all. The humor, script and tone of the whole movie fitted perfectly with the other three movies and I have to say it wasn't any better or any worse than the older ones... what more could you ask for?!

Harrison Ford surviving eye rolling stunts was all part of the magic and fun that Indiana Jones brings! There were a few jokes about his age which a gave a realistic tint to the movie... kind of lol. Shia Labeouf did himself proud. His relationship with Indy was so great and comedic, they really worked well together. I'd definatly say that Shia was a possitive part of this movie. His entrance was amazing and ended the film in style =] (i wont give anything away). Karen Allen returns as Marion one of my favourite chacters out of the Indiana Jones movies and shes as spunky and funny as ever. Cate Blanchett was absolutly amazing! She made the movie very enjoyable to watch as a russian villian! She's one of my favourite actresses but after her performance in this she's inpressed me even more.
I really liked how little parts of the movie related back to the older films, but no matter how much I loved this film it did have its flaws. The story line was quite confusing and bizare as always and alot of people have complained about it, but what disapointed me the most was the unessesary CGI and graphics.
I think to enjoy this film you have had to watch the first movies so you understand the tone and genre of the Indiana Jones films. If you haven't you might go in expecting something different, some people would say that Indiana Jones is a new genre of film in itself and i could agree...
The endding was fantastic but it did suggest there could be more Indiana Jones films with Shia's character as a lead role and Harrison Ford as a side kick like Sean Connery's character in the third movie.
George Lucus has said its highly likely this could happen.
but as much as id love to see more of Mutt Wiliams & Indiana Jones, I really deep down hope this was the last one. Id hate for Shia to be known for his role in Indiana Jones when hes such a fantastic actor he could carry on with different movies. I also don't think Indiana Jones V would be very sucsessful as I can tell that people will be disapointed with this movie, but no fault of Shia's.

Over all Id give this film a B+
I enjoyed this film imensely and I cannot wait to see it again dispite its flaws.
Let me know what you all think =]

UPDATE// i just added a new banner that i made featuring Daisy Lowe, shes my favourite model right now!

At first I was very excited to see it but I think it has too many effects. Still it has in Shia so it got bonus points for that.

I am sooooooooo very excited to see this film, great review!

The Clothes Horse said...

I'm quite enthralled by Shia and I was so excited for this movie--it followed through for me. I think the beginning was the strongest (the library scene brilliant), but it lost a bit towards the end and the finale was anticlimatic...

Kira Fashion said...

hi!

i think i gonna watch that movie, but i prefer to watch sex in the city...but i didn´t come to my city yet! hehhee

a kiss dear!

thanks for the text about Indiana, that always will be a great choice!!!

Secretista said...

I can't wait to see the movie!

Shia my love<33

LINDA said...

The fact that "Indiana Jones" is so corny and cheesy is what makes it brilliant and cute. :D

Besides, Shia Labeouf makes up for it if you're not the "cheesy, cutesy" movie type.

Debbie Shiamay said...

my dad is the ultimate indiana jones fan! Im going to watch this next week!

Carolina Lange said...

I'm a Fan of Indiana Jones! I must see this movie!

Danz said...

I've never watched any of the Indiana Jones movies and the only reason I'll be watching this one is because of Shia. I hope it's a great as you say!

lara said...

I'm looking forward to watch the film :) I think it will be fun

Vain and Vapid said...

Love your new header! Daisy is my new favorite....

Secret Agent said...

I haven't watched any of the Indiana Jones movies yet, but I certainly plan to. It looks like a lot of fun...and since you gave it a B+, all the better.
Very cool banner. Daisy Lowe is one sexy girl. I'm guessing you bought the GQ with Shia (I just got it today). Did you read the Daisy tidbit? She's such a horny dog -- awesome!

She's Dressing Up said...

I went to see the movie on Friday and loved it! Great review!!

e.jay said...

I tried to think of this movie as being a purposely cheesy farce to make fun of all of those 50's scifi flicks. It helped me enjoy it more. I love The Beef (Shia) but it's a common habit of mine to tease my crushes...my tomboy nature perhaps, so he was bringing the lolz throughout the movie.

MEEEE said...

Hey!

I watched the Indiana Jones movie last Thursday, and he blew my mind. :)
And I'm a Shia Labeouf fan as well! Woot!

I remembered that the first one scared me so much when I was little. Something about a guy reaching in and ripping his heart out that I never forgot.

autumn said...

and i noticed Jesse Mccartney on the right side. he's really hot. =]

Jill said...

Haha, my friends went to see this movie and told me how unrealistic it was, but overall I think it sounds like a fun movie.

Elle said...

Oh wow I am so excited to see that movie! I am kinda Shia-obsessed too. He's cuuute :]

ChiliLady said...

this was a fantastic review, the best I red so far.

Savvy Gal said...

Went to see the movie and to be honest, I was kind of disappointed.

fashion* CHALET said...

Saw it opening weekend. I rarely go to the movies (I prefer watching at home with my healthier snacks and quiet!) but I just had to see this one. Shia was amazing. I love that kid!

patrick said...

judging from the "hat hint" at the end of the most recent Indiana Jones, it seems pretty obvious that Shia LaBeouf will be the next Indy
