Indiana Jones

Went and saw Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull last night and enjoyed it a lot. Checked my brain at the door at went along for the ride. Very Sci-Fi with a good fifties vibe, the film also drew inspiration from books like Chariots of the Gods and put forward the idea that aliens really did visit the earth a long time ago and influence human culture.
Over the top ending with the baddie (Cate Blanchett chewing massive amounts of scenery) getting what she deserves. Follows a fairly worn formula, but Spielberg knows what he is doing. Anyone looking for a fun night out should enjoy this.
