You know how many movies I have not seen? A lot of them. MOST of them, actually.
Yesterday, I watched Indiana Jones for the first time. And it was intense. The action scenes never stopped, the leading lady was badassed, and Harrison Ford as the attractive, educated, pinnacle of American manhood gets two thumbs up from this gal.
I knew that this was an adventure movie, and that Indiana Jones carried whips, and that there were sequels so he wouldn't die unexpectedly, but other than that, I didn't really know the premise. That being said, I loved the opening scene the most. Spiders? Booby traps? Rope swings? Shiny monkey thing? Yes, please. A sense of purpose or direction? Not necessary. Proceed with the awesome.
The ending was JUST PLAIN SILLY. To avoid the wrath of gods of yore, you just have to close your eyes.
Could you guess which scene was my favorite? I had no idea there were so many women in higher education in the 30's...
Would I watch this again? Yes. And Harrison Ford is invited to join me.
