Indiana Jones and the Kindgdom of the Crystal Skull

Movie: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
Like/Don't Like: Far-fetched, but I can't lie that I didn't get a little thrill when I heard the music and saw the hat.

I'm going to assume that everyone has seen this movie by now. So I'm just going to say this:

Aliens? Really? You went with Aliens? Because that was pretty lame.

Now, I'm not saying that I didn't enjoy the movie. I love Indiana Jones. But aliens was a dumb move. I wondered what made it harder to swallow then say a man guarding a cup in a cave for a few centuries, but apparently aliens cross the line for me. I can see why they went there. It's set in the 50s. Little Green Men were big then. I get it, but that doesn't mean I have to like it. It still had a bit of the old Indiana Jones Charm but the whole movie felt a little unnecessary to the franchise.

Yeah, the alien bit was a little bizarre to me. But it made me want to watch the other movies (the first one and the third one, NOT the middle one--ew.), and maybe they made Crystal Skull just to promote DVD sales of the other 3!

I hate to see less than worthy sequels to great original movies. It's hard to live up to Raiders of the Lost Ark. I thought the aliens were actually more realistic than the scene with the fridge.
