I’m finding it very difficult to rank the Indiana Jones movies after seeing this latest installment. One thing I’m quite sure of is that Raiders of the Lost Ark and Last Crusade place higher than Temple of Doom and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
But despite the shortcomings of the 2nd and 4th films, they’re both still pure Indy gold and you can’t help but love them. Harrison Ford just owns that role so completely, and the villains are just so comically goofy, that you just have to shovel popcorn into your mouth and enjoy it.
Update: Sounds like a few other people liked it too. Time to make another one!
