    So I'd like to know your opinion of the whole UFO angle. I really didn't think they would go there, but they did. The whole atom bomb and the refrigerator bothered me too, as did the waterfall drops.

    I did love the jeeps through the jungle sequence and the ants. Liked the Brando and The Wild One nod and the American Graffiti fight nod.

    Those are my random first impressions.

    Now I'd like to hear yours.

    C-H-E-E-S-Y Dialog--especially in the first 30 minutes.

    Love the magnetism idea throughout the movie. Cool concept and effects.

    The nuclear refrigerator was major dumb. Like he could have survived a ground zero blast, lead or no lead.

    The UFO angle didn't surprise me at all--all the talk about aliens being the real founders of the Inca/Mayan civilizations. In fact, I was actually expecting it to go there. My only thought is that Spielberg must really believe aliens look like that, since he's consistent with that look in all his films.

    Yeh the jeep chases were cool. The three waterfalls were as crazy (or crazier) than the refrigerator.

    And the 1/2 second glimpse of the Ark bothered me...I thought it might have some play in the pic.

    I thought the chase through the campus--especially in the library--was retarded. Also, Indy's being fired in the hallway within earshot of the students. Who WROTE these dumb scenes?????

    In spite of all the negatives, I really enjoyed the movie! Crazy, I know. ESPECIALLY the man-eating ants. That was fun! I started itching all over!

    Oh yeh...

    All the 30-foot drops...Indy would have broken every bone in his body with all those falls.

    One more word about the waterfall incidents. They only coughed and sputtered a little, as if they been thrown in the pool in their street clothes. And where did Mack hide all his little red blinker lights? The water would have shorted them out.

    And how did devil woman cover all that territory so fast? And not encounter the Indians?

    I LOVE INDIANA JONES so I totally ignored the fact that the movie was somewhat ridiculous. It was like the first few scenes were of Harrison Ford trying to remember how to act and he was having a rough time. And no offense but there were several times during the movie where I was like "No way, his body could not do that or take that anymore...he's old and it's ok that he's old." And there were some crazy large ants and waterfalls that would have eaten them up and aliens but overall it was Indiana Jones, I loved it. Ok..the whole refrigerator thing really bothered me though...really? That was totally uncalled for and super unrealilstic and I was shocked that they would put something in that was that stupid. My kids (5 & 8) sat through it and liked it however my daughter (5) said at the end..."Ok, so what happened, what was the point, do we have a winner?" So I don't think she quite got it but in the end I am glad we went and gave the kids a chance to experience Indiana Jones on opening day...lol. And I am really starting to enjoy Shia LaBouf's acting. :)

    To Jon's Blog - I bid you farewell. I'm sorry that your owner/creator/writer has so obviously abandoned you.

    You made us all laugh - and even made some of us cry (even though the cause for tears was a gross fabrication).

    I trust that this one last comment will bring you some comfort you as you struggle to find your way through this dark time of loneliess and despair.

    Ashes to ashes....

    You will be missed.

    RIP Jon's Blog. RIP.
