It had all of the elements we loved in the others: suspense, non-stop action, a feisty female (I love Karen Allen), a nasty villian (Cate Blanchett was great), crazy stunts, amazing scenery, rolicking adventure, a mystery, and of course, Harrison Ford. The main reason I watch the Indy movies. Golly gee whiz he is darn attractive. How come men just get more good looking, the older they get? Calista is one lucky little girl. And I mean that in lots of ways.
We don't go out to the movies very often, case in point: tickets, drinks, popcorn to share, $50. That is money we are only willing to pay when a movie is worth seeing on the big screen. Which this one was. Otherwise, Netflix is the way to go for our family. And if you haven't tried it yet, I urge you to do so. Finally watched "juno" last night. It was okay, but glad I didn't pay to see it on the big screen.
So it was a great family outing, and a wonderful way to spend my birthday. And Charlie even dressed for the occasion:
hmmm, he would make a fine archeologist...all he needs is a whip...
