Countdown to Extinction...
One reason for being here is attending the wedding (3rd actually) of my pal Sherwin and his wife Claire. Also to see my godchild Sheriz who's their adorable baby. So yesterday was the big day for them and I wish them all the luck in the world and happiness together. Thank you for treating me as part of the family. See you all tomorrow on the flight back to SG.
Today, I watched Indiana Jones: Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. I won't be reviewing it but I'll just say a few things about this flick. I appreciate how they tried to make this fit in the first trilogy, like making it look old and a bit outdated. The actors were obviously inside a soundstage in most scenes but it's okay. But that's the thing, when a CG element pops in the scene, it sticks out, looks out of place.
The first time I saw the CG prairie dog, all I could say was, "EH?!" I hope that was it... until I saw more of them, even fighting monkeys for Pete's sake. And why were the monkeys attacking the villain?! For no apparent reason as far as I can tell, except maybe because they felt Shia was one of them and they had to represent. It was a definite "what the fuck?!" moment for me. There were a lot of things that were just totally absurd and unbelievable, which should not be since Indy movies are supposed to be like that. But this takes the cake... freakin' unbelievable. For alien movies, I'll probably just watch the upcoming X-Files movie. I was a huuuge fan of the series as well as conspiracy theories about extraterrestrials during my youth. Back to Indy, the cast is still adorable and quite fun. But it all just feels like an introduction or a bridge to more Indy movies probably having Shia wearing Indy's fedora. We'll see. While i love Shia's performances, just end it, Indy is Harrison Ford, no one else.
You might be wondering what the hell's the title got to do with this post... it's sort of internal. No, no, I don't have a terminal illness, but it's something. Something we have to deal with in time... WTH?!
