INDIANA JONES and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull


I gotta have one of these 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' poster.

I first saw 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' in 1981 at the Makati Cinema Square in Makati city, Philippines with my ex-girlfriend. I was awestruck with the iconic character...a rough and tumble adventure kind of guy, the man with the battered hat.

I also remember watching the 2nd part 'Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom' (1984), which actually took place a year before 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' ! Steven Spielberg is a genius. Saw the film numerous times in different dates in the theater. So far, this is my favorite Indy film because of its dark mood settings. There weren't any CGI effects in those days and the SFX guys at ILM (Industrial Light and Magic) have devised innovative ways to tell the story. Remember the mine car chase inside the mine shaft tunnel ? I remember we rode the 'Indiana Jones Adventure Ride' of Disneyland in Anaheim in 2003...that was a thrilling roller coaster ride complete with the big boulder from 'Raiders' !

'Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade' (1988) was also a thrill to see specially Sean Connery portraying a different role, a far cry from the suave days of James Bond.

I can't wait to see the 4th installment 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' to be shown on May 22, 2008...malapit na, isang buwan na lang. Here's the trailer...


Here's another ODD THINKING WITH MOVIES for you...


snapshot here shows the late RIVER PHOENIX playing a young Indiana Jones in the 3rd Indy film 'Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade'


young Indy (River Phoenix) struck his whip to force back an attacking lion but instead slicing up his chin.....


...thus explaining how the adult Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) got his scar on his chin.


this is a snapshot from the film 'The MOSQUITO COAST', a Peter Weir film. River Phoenix played the son of Harrison Ford in the film. In ODD THINKING WITH THE MOVIES.....Indiana Jones played both father and son in 'The Mosquito Coast'
