Friday Movie Review - Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

As everykitty knows, my mommy left me ALL ALONE last Friday and went off to have fun with Grandmama. What made it even worse was that she went to see a movie without me - and not just ANY movie! She went to see "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull."

I still can't believe it. She KNEW how excited I was about the new Indy movie! I even dressed up like him for the Indiana Jones look-alike contest. I wore that hat for days!

Well, seeing as how mommy once again let me down, I took matters into my own paws. I donned my "Igor Kittenovsky, Russian Foreign Exchange Student" disguise and once more infiltrated the movie theatre. This time I added some gummy bears to my popcorn and Dr Pepper concession order - I felt I deserved an extra treat for the earlier mommy abandonment. (Gummy bears are just as much fun to bat around as popcorn - and if you whap them just right, they bounce!)
I settled myself into the back of the darkened theatre with my goodies and awaited the infamous "Indy" theme music. Mommy has been humming it for weeks now, and I couldn't wait to hear the real thing.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008)

Directed By: Steven Spielberg

Written By: David Koepp (Screenplay)

George Lucas (Story)

Let me just say here kitties, for a bean as ancient as he is, Harrison Ford looks pretty good. I can now see the resemblance that so many of you remarked upon during the look-alike contest. He wouldn't make a bad mancat.

And Shia LaBeouf (Mutt) made a pretty good sidekick, for a wannabe 50s greaser. I liked how attached he was to his motorcycle. I felt bad for him when he had to leave it behind for the rest of the adventure. How would I feel if I had to leave my pink mousie behind? I'd be stricken!

Instead of fighting Nazis in this picture, Indy is facing off against the soviet russians. I felt a little conspicuous in my russian disguise after I found that out. Maybe I should have disguised myself as Harrison Ford instead? I might have gotten in for free!
There was a lot of scenes with Indy and Mutt in dirty, dark places with a lot of dead beans. I know this is what my mommy calls her "dream job." I don't understand my mommy sometimes.
I don't want to give a lot away, because that would spoil it for those kitties who haven't seen this movie yet. But I did want to let all of you know that it was worth all of the trouble I took to see it. I give "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" two paws up, and a whip crack!

Great job, Tybalt! :) Our mom thinks that Harrison Ford still looks really good at his age (even though he's old enough to be her father) and she and our dad enjoyed the movie. :)

Lux said...

You're not going to believe this, but when the Tall Skinny Boy was in town, the beans were forced to actually socialize a bit and they ended up in a movie theater with about 7 other people watching this movie!

Er, they didn't like it. It just wasn't their "thing." ;-) But everyone else in the group did, so they were mum.

PB 'n J said...

What a great review Tybalt! Oh Daddy really wants to see this too - I told him that if Mommy doesn't want to go that I would happily go with him, but he said no (guess I should have snuck in with you).

Great review, Tybalt. I really want to see this movie, but I will probably have to wait until it comes out on DVD. My schedule doesn't fit with going to the movies very well.

That was a dangerous undercover assignment, Tybalt. We're glad you weren't harmed in the movie theater. Maybe next movie you can sneak in as Harrison Ford.
