Wednesday, May 07, 2008 parents were SO right on this one!

I have been counting down the days since January for the release of the 4th Indiana Jones movie, "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull".
I grew up on Indy. I LOVED Indy. I wanted to be an archaeologist when I was a kid because of these movies.

All growing up - I had repeatedly seen "Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark"
and "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade".
But THIS one, "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" was a definite no-no in our house.
So I never saw it. (Yes, I was an obedient child.) I remember my dad saying something about it being pretty evil and gory. Well I figured as part of building the anticipation for the May 22nd release of the 4th Indy movie, I would rent all three and watch them with Jason. Turns out he's never seen the 2nd or 3rd one. So we snuggled up Sunday night to watch "Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom" for the very first time. I was pumped. After all, I'm an adult now, I can handle it.


Jason and I looked at each other halfway through this movie and we were like - WHAT THE HECK! Now I see why our parents wouldn't let us watch this movie. Good call mom and dad.


It was so horrible. I was sick to my stomach from all the raunch, bad acting and evil crap thrown in. It totally bummed me out. Thankfully we still have the third one to redeem the whole series - but what the heck happened with #2??? What were they thinking??? Here I thought Indiana was family friendly!!

If #4 disappoints....I seriously might cry.

15 days and counting.

We bought all three to watch with the kids cause we are seeing the fourth for Jeshua's birthday at the end of the month. We got part way into the movie and were shocked. Jay and I hadn't remembered what it was like. The kids started crying and said they never wanted to see it again. We turned it off. I hope the new one is good because we are so excited to see it. We rode the ride at Disneyland about half a dozen times. I wish you guys were here to come to the drive in and see it with us! love you
