Indiana Jones and the eternal wait for the Crystal Skull

Indiana Jones Poster

There’s a boy wriggling with glee deep inside of me. He’s shuddering with excitement but fearful with far too much self-awareness that this could all end in tears. 

This is that eight year old boy who imagined that everytime he ran down a hill on the way home from school a giant boulder was following him. The same ten year old boy who lost an entire summer holiday to Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis. The boy who hasn’t been excited about seeing a movie at the cinema, like, ever and now this boy-man is jittering at a keyboard like a meth-fiend, causing car accidents with excitement at billboards which simply say INDY in 20ft high, red font, complete with bull whip and flames and thee hat. This man-boy is not sure he can last three weeks longer and is being near stalked by teasing tidbits everywhere from packs of Snickers and M&M’s, to fact-ladled features in Portfolio (for further geekdom visit IMDB), to the cover feature from months back in Vanity Fair which is still sat, pristine, beside my bed… and now Expedia are suggesting I take myself, and my special Indiana Jones credit card, on an special Indy themed trip!?

I’m bored of being dunked in all this teasing, it’s front-loaded marketing gone mad and the movie, despite two of the greatest director-producers of all time, Harrison appearing alongside Cate Blanchett, the amazing looking trailer which started the foreplay back in December and the fact it’s Indiana-fricken-Jones, the Kingdon of the Crystal Skull can now only be a let down, surely?

  2. for some reason i keep thinking Cate Blanchett is going to speak English with a German accent in the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull though she’s supposed to be Russian
