Indy 4Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
Two-Disc Special Edition
Directed by Steven Spielberg
Starring Harrison Ford, Shia LaBeouf, Karen Allen, John Hurt, Ray Winstone
Paramount Home Entertainment
Release date: October 14, 2008

In my review of the theatrical release of Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, I expressed great disappointment after having such high hopes for the fourth installment of the popular franchise. Mainly, my disappointment was not because it was a bad movie, but because it simply was not the film I expected nor was it the scenario I pictured for the return of the adventurer after two decades.

Upon first viewing, I was analyzing the minute details of the film so much that I had trouble following the story, which picks up 19 years after the previous film with the title hero (Harrison Ford) facing off with the Russians during the Red Scare of the 1950s. Much older and wiser, yet just as physical, Indy finds himself with a new young sidekick Mutt (Shia LaBeouf ), a motorcycle-riding, leather-jacket-wearing rebellious greaser who needs Indy’s help to find his mother Mary and father-figure Ox. Ox and Mary — old acquaintances of Indy — have been abducted by Soviet agents led by Col. Dr. Irina Spalko (Cate Blanchett) for the information they hold about the mysterious paranormal Crystal Skulls.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Blu-ray DVDIndiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Directed by Steven Spielberg

Release date: October 14, 2008

If Babe Ruth, arguably the best baseball player of all time, was alive today, would he plunge head-first into the steroid/human growth hormone fiasco that has led to the decay of the game? He was a great player in an era where these enhancements, not to mention the fancy equipment that players of today now swear by, were non-existent…so what need would he have for them? This is what has happened to Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, the latest installment in what is arguably the greatest series of action films of all time.

The grey-haired duo of director Steven Spielberg and writer/producer George Lucas find themselves traveling the route so many baseball players (and directors, ahem, Michael Bay) find themselves on today: injecting superhuman strength into their bodies to produce outrageous results. Nowadays it’s so easy to hit a homerun that it’s not even special anymore. The expression ‘chicks dig the long-ball’ is long gone. In cinema, it isn’t special anymore to see extravagant action sequences. Most of them look as though they’ve been filmed in front of a giant green screen, never giving the viewer a sense of reality. Just because you can do practically anything with this technique doesn’t mean it’s a treat to watch. The simple, stylistic sequences that Spielberg did so effortlessly in the previous films are gone, replaced by huge, freakish-looking stunts that look nothing less than fake.
