Movies – June 2008

This has been a good month for movies. I saw the following in cinemas: Kung Fu Panda – complete AWESOMENESS. I drank the Kool-Aid all the way on this one. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull – classic Indy goodness. Incredible Hulk – Edward Norton is cast brilliantly here, a choice on…

Indiana Jones: Raiders vs Crystal Skull

So I saw Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull last Friday. Two days later I also watched for the first time Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. Instead of doing a lame movie review, here’s a double header feature! (Warning: Spoilers for both movies follow)

X-Men III: The Last Stand

There’s only one thing I have to say about the third X-men movie: Totally unexpected. Comic book series fans will enjoy it more, as it fundamentally screws with what such a fan would expect from an X-men movie. Good stuff.

DaVinci Code

I’m not sure what some Church leaders are thinking. Calling for an outright ban on The DaVinci Code movie just makes it more popular. At the very least, it’s insulting to the intelligence of their flock – are they saying Catholics don’t have the ability to distinguish fact from fiction by themselves? But then again, this is…
