The year is 1957, a time of the Cold War, anti-communism hysteria, and Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford of Indiana Jones and the Raiders Of The Lost Ark , Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom, and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade) is on another adventure as he is hauled into Area 51 by KBG agents to find an artifact that is stored in a cavernous warehouse. The team is lead by Irina Spalko (Cate Blanchett of The Lord of the Rings : The Fellowship of the Ring), a leader in paranormal research for her Socialist empire, as she calls it. There is much mistrust going on when Indy and his companion, ‘Mac’ George Michale (Ray Winstone) ask for gunpowder to lead them to the artifact, as it is highly magnetic, and the powder will lead the way. Once they find the box, Agent Spalko opens it only to find the remains of an alien body. This is no ordinary alien. This is the body of one of the aliens found in Roswell, New Mexico ten years before. Indy was working as a specialist on that case then, but ten years later, he is still very much in the dark about what went on there. More mistrust occurs when Mac turns on him for payment by the KGB, as Mac has amassed some gambling debts the Russians are willing to pay off. There is much bullets and blood and mayhem as Indy makes his escape, and he finds himself in a fake suburban town populated with manniquins. The Howdy Doody show is running on the black and white TV, but that little theme song is drowned out by sirens, and Indy has no time to escape what is coming. He dives into a lead-lined refrigerator, and is thrown from the nuclear test blast that annihilates the fake town. Somehow, he manages to make it back home to Connecticut and is teaching again at Marshall College when Dean Charles Stanforth (Jim Broadbent of The Borrowers) approaches Indy about all the chaos he is causing with the government agencies and the board of regents. The FBI has gotten involved and it has caused such an uproar that in order for Indy to keep his job, the Dean was forced to resign. Read more...

Two of the greatest actors of all time together in one film, what is not to love. This film is action packed and even had River Phoenix as Young Indy to get the attention of the teenies, which Harison Ford himself suggested. This film really is a wild ride from the deserts of the Midwest to the deserts of the Mid East. Everyone who sees this film is going to find something to love in it even if the main actress is way too thin in scenes. Hollywood please feed your actresses PLEASE! Sorry for the PSA there, women should have curves and not be flat and boring as boards. Even if Ford is a carpenter he should not have to play with the so called carpenter’s dream. Alison Doody should not have been cast as Dr. Elsa Schneider, she needed more curves and personality which she didn’t have either in this one particular film. Read more...

A film full of mystery, occult and wonder as we are taken on a journey of both discovery and adventure. It is still as great today as it was when it first hit the screen in 1981. This is a classic that is never going to die and drops us into the middle of a time when the world was still a mysterious place. A time when just looking for something was a reward unto it’s self. The film might seem to start slow but it quickly picks up the pace ad Indy tries to stay one step ahead of all the traps and pitfalls that are in front and chasing him. You will love the ride that is Indiana Jones and the Raiders Of The Lost Ark. Yes, I called it a ride because that is what it is. Like a roller coaster we are being pulled up the hill and then plummeted down the next as we try and keep up with what is now our hero. Lucas and Spielberg definitely knew what they were doing with this film. Read more... (930 words, 80 images, estimated 3:43 mins reading time)
A mystical wild ride full of song, beauty and close calls for our favorite archeologist. From the streets of Shanghai to the the foreboding Pankot Palace it is up to Indie to save villages, hot women, kids and even himself. There is evil all around and part of that evil is Dr. Jones’ (Harrison Ford) greed which village elders use against him to see that he set things right. They believe that a great evil is rising in Pankot Palace and that the Thuggee cult, the worshipers of the evil aspect of Kali have stolen their children, stolen their Sivalinga stone from their shrine and have made all their fields and crops dry up. They don’t believe in coincidences and know that Indiana is there, sent from Shiva, to rescue them and their children. As this is a prequel to Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indie is very skeptical about the whole thing. It is not till a young boy half starved wanders into the village and hands him a scrap of fabric that he starts to wonder if the story is true. He knows the children are missing, what he is wondering if it is true is that the stone that was in the village was actually one of the five fabled Sankara stones. If he could get those, and you see it on his face, he would be rich and famous beyond belief. As he put it to Short Round (Jonathan Ke Quan), “Fortune and glory kid, fortune and glory” Read more...
