Hmm, what could I possibly be fussing about now?
Indiana Jones and the Plasticrap Universe
The incredibly annoying Kate Capshaw character notwithstanding, the Indiana Jones series has long been one of my guilty pleasures. I was born a few decades too late, because I can immerse myself into his time frame like I had actually lived through it. I love the camp, the impossible stunts, the ridiculous face-melting special effects, the cultural charicatures, the hat (I have one), and well, we won't get into the rest of his accessories. I am a Karen Allen purist and I am thrilled she will be returning for the next movie.
OMG, the endless advertising for the other three videos, the movie itself, the Burger King contest, licensed character toys! Will it ever end? Seriously, the Indiana Jones theme used to make me goofily (is that a word?) happy, but now it is on every. single. commercial. break. And I want to jump off a cliff. Tigger is entralled with the Indiana Jones series. Yes, I am aware that he is too young to be watching it, but compared to a lot of other crap out there, this is pretty harmless. Unlike Star Wars, which he loves and I kind of like in a nostalgic sort of way (which means Parts 1-3 interest me not at all), we can really bond over Indiana Jones. If I promise to see it, will you make it go away?
