Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

The last time I watched movie with my parents was 11 years ago in 1997 when I used my part-time job salary to treat my parents to watch Titanic starring Leonardo DiCaprio & Kate Winslet. I still remembered my dad fell asleep during the beginning part of movie and woke up when Titanic sank. That was the "action" part which he likes. The "lovey-dovey" part he does not enjoy. Hahaha.

We watched the Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull on last Wednesday - which is a movie day. RM6/ticket - 40% cheaper than normal price. Mum, dad, ah-yee, Min, Peter & I watched the 9.30pm show. Too bad Wen is in KL - if not, it will be a family event! Surprisingly, dad did not fall asleep this time although the movie ends at 11.45pm. Good work, dad!

OK now..let's get to the show review. It was a disappointment to me. Maybe because I had high expectations of it. Before i watched it, I already heard reviews from friends saying the show is just "ok ok nya", but I refused to believe in it because I love the previous Indiana Jones movies. I love the Temple of Doom, Raiders of the Lost Ark & Last Crusade.
However, when I watched Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, i find the pace a bit "slow" and less exciting. I find less action in the movie and also the storyline not that good.

Harrison Ford still looks gaya but a 'lil old of coz. All in all, it was below my expectations. I think I can give it only 5.5/10 marks....considering it is a Steven Spielberg film starring Harrison Ford.

Anyway, if you are still a fan of Indiana Jones (like me!), there is an official Indiana Jones website which is quite an interesting to explore.
