The older I get, the less I like the Indiana Jones films. I still like the first one the best, by far, and partly out of habit. The second...uggh. What everyone else has said. Though I did like the opening sequence. The third one struck me as a rehash, but with lots more of the silly implausibility that had started to irk me about the first.
Voicing that opinion tends to get me dirty looks from many of my friends.
Regarding the thread topic: I watched the documentary "I Am Trying to Break Your Heart," a critically-acclaimed documentary about the band Wilco. I'd just gotten Wilco's latest album and loved it, so I was psyched up about the movie. But it was booor-ingggggg...
Also, last year I saw this movie, the name of which escapes me. I think it was something like "Northfork" or "Northwood." It looked
really fun, beautifully filmed, quirky. The story, such as it was, was about all these guys hired to go into a tiny Montana town and convince the remaining residents to get out before the new hydroelectric dam starts flooding the valley. There were angels, angry old guys with shot guns, a hallucinatory sick child watched over by an interesting priest, a loaded relationship between a father, a son, and their dead wife/mother. Could have been great.
Sucked. Stoopid stoopid stoopid. Worst movie I saw in a theater in 2003.
Lucky me, lucky mud.
