Indiana Jones: Amazing Collection
Reviewed in Canada on May 29, 2016
I don't hate The Crystal Skull, like a lot of people, I think it's just campy. Indy in the fridge, and Cate Blanchette's accent. It's all good. I laugh watching this entry more than any others. I feel it was done with the intention of making the audience roar. Unfortunately most people didn't get it.
This franchise has always been campy, and that is why it's had such longevity. the campiness of the films are exactly why people love it. From eh first film to the forth entry, the things that happen in the Indy films are hilarious. Indy shoots a villain with a huge sword, falling out oaf a plane on a life raft, the fountain of youth. Come on. It's great fun!!! All four chapters were made with love and care. I don't know why people insist 4 was thrown together. It wasn't. Having a collector's edition compiling all the tidbits of behind-the-scenes magic, makes this a-must-have for any home video collector.
Harrison Ford is sexy, egotistical, and short-tempered, playing Indy for over twenty years. I hear they might be making a part 5. If they do, i hope he comes back in some capacity. Harrison is Indy, and the series would suffer without it. was it shocking to se him as the aged version of Indy, for part 4? Yes. It was. But once the film got started I fell in love.
2 will always be my favourite. I love Raiders, but The Temple of Doom is just delicious camp from the word go. It's no wonder Kate Capshaw won Steven Spielberg's heart while making the film with him, in 1984. She's a riot. And Sean Connery played Indiana's father to absolute perfection, in 'The Last Crusade'.
