"Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull"

We saw it!

We went to "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" at the 10:45 p.m. showing last night -- and got out just around 1 a.m. (The above link is for the Flash-heavy official movie site, by the way.)

I won't 'spoil' it for anyone, but will say I loved it!

I can't help thinking back to 1981 and the very first movie in the series... Marilyn mistressmarilyn and I had just gotten really active in the local SciFi scene, interacting with slews of other 'alternative people' (like us) who loved that sort of thing.

Anyway, this movie works really well. There's even mention of something that happened in an episode of "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles" (we were -- and remain -- big fans of the series, which featured Sean Paul Flanery as the teenage Indy), which really tickled us. (The link is for the unofficial site of the TV series, which to date has had close to 300,000. It's a really good site!)

You need to see this movie. Especially if you're an Indiana Jones fan. That's all I say for now...

Well, I need to get to work. Marilyn is off to the office and I'm ready to hit things hard here in my home office...
