I Love The Man in the Hat

So, the 4th and what looks to be truly the last, Indian Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is out. (not yet here in Japan-- but presumably back home in the states and elsewhere.) I love movies, everything except horror films. Art movies and Pop-block-busters, I love it all. And I must admit I have a soft spot for Indie, including his hat and whip. Not sure what that says about me but I have thoroughly enjoyed the franchise. Didn't much like the one with the guy who ripped people's hearts out, but I loved the other two. There were so many classic lines, especially in #1 and #3. Some of my favorite movie bits of all time come from these films.

So, did you go see it? What did you think? It didn't get panned, and I am hearing that there is some fun stuff good for all ages in the film. I am looking forward to hearing that soundtrack again and seeing my favorite man in a fedora kick some bad guy butt.

Here's what the New York Times had to say about it. Other reviews are here.
What summer blockbusters are you looking forward to?
