Mrs. Wormer and the kids will be joining me at a local Megaplex tomorrow evening to see "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull."
As excited as I am to see the movie I would like to make it clear I'm not expecting great cinema. I don't imagine I'm going to be stirred to the depths of my soul by the imagery and story.
I do expect to have a good time. I expect a couple of laughs, a few groans and maybe a gag at whatever the gross-out scene is going to be.
I think it's fair to say that any problems the movie has will be squarely laid on the shoulders of George Lucas by fanboys. I'll be among them. From killing the Frank Darabont draft of the script to insisting on his personal McGuffin he's all ready done a little bit of damage to this project in my opinion.
I think this very funny short film "George Lucas In Love" captured his lack of creative process perfectly.
