Indiana Jones and the Temple of Womb

June 10, 2008

I almost had to end my relationship with my girlfriend recently when she admitted to me she had never seen an Indiana Jones movie. I love her, I do… but… c’mon! So a couple of weeks ago we watched Raiders. She thought it was good. No jumping up and down, but she was glad to have finally seen it. Last night we watched Temple of Doom. She loved it. She smiled through the opening, got scared, got misty… and all but applauded at the end.  It seems to me that women often appreciate that one more.  Until this last adventure everyone was in agreement that Temple was the worst.  I submit to you that it’s only bad in terms of it’s forerunner and follow-up.  It’s a really good movie.  We all know that Kate Capshaw is a little annoying at times (like at the beginning, middle and end).  Short Round however is a GREAT sidekick… who didn’t want their own thieving Asian child sidekick after that?  The opening sequence is one of the greatest in film history.  Everyone knows the dining scene.  The cart race is iconic.  Most of us can do the Thuggies chant.  The shrinking room, the alligators, the beating heart, Indys transformation… the movie is so full of great moments, why does that movie get a bad wrap?  It easily makes my 100 best movies of all time list.

What’s that I hear? Is it a chorus of angels? I think I may have died and gone to some sweet sweet delicious heaven:

Reasons I will see the movie Wanted: 1) I enjoyed the directors Russian films.
2) You watch a bullet come out of a mans forehead.
3) Morgan Freeman says, “Motherf*cker.”:

Dirty dirty dirty… if you don’t know enough to know that you probably shouldn’t look at this while at work then you should probably just be a fry cook… but it is out of an obligation to bring you the hard hitting new pieces that I must place this link here:

I’m not a baseball fan. Never have been. Personally I think it’s a little boring but I have been to a few games and I am pretty flummoxed when it comes to some fan behavior:

    OH MY GOD…. that movie is sooooo good. I had an intense mini-conversation with Prescott about it in the kitchen.
