I’m back on the Nerd Lunch podcast for one last Indiana Jones movies drill-down (at least for now). After revisiting Raiders of the Lost Ark, Temple of Doom, and The Last Crusade, we found ourselves face-to-face with Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
Everyone on the panel was less than thrilled back when we first watched this 2008 movie, and I, for one, was curious if like with Star Wars’ The Phantom Menace, I could transcend that initial disappointment to see more value in the film after some time and distance.
Well, you’ll have to listen to find out how that went. I’ll say this though – by the end, I surprised myself.
Of course we cover our favorite and least favorite elements, but there’s also discussion of what makes Marion work as a character, punching, 1999’s The Mummy, the Indiana Jones approach to fatherhood, and wavering accents.
The previous installments of our look at Indiana Jones are linked above. Be sure to check them out if you haven’t already. And if you’re unfamiliar with Todd’s toy art, take a look at JunkFed.
Thank you to CT, Pax, and Jeeg for letting Todd and I dive into these movies with the team. Thank you for tuning in and following us “into the space between spaces”.
