Special Edition Podcast – 05.25.2008

Total Running Time: 00:31:27
The summer of comic book movies* continues tonight at midnight with Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull!
I don’t think that I’ve ever been more conflicted about a movie in my life. I’ve been conflicted and apprehensive about a movie before but never to this degree. My childhood was about three things, mainly – Star Wars, Batman, and Indiana Jones. I used to wear my dad’s fedora around for weeks after seeing both Temple of Doom and The Last Crusade in the theaters.
People ask me if I am excited for this one and I usually answer with a very pained “yeeeeah.” I hoping that the best case scenario happens and this is a rollicking thrill ride. But if has to go south on us, I’m hoping for a movie akin to Lethal Weapon 4 – not great, not terrible, but ultimately forgettable. I’d like to avoid a prequels situation.
But I will tell you this. When that John Williams theme kicks in my heart is going to soar with childlike wonder. It’s an ironclad guarantee, folks.
Are you going to see it? Of course you are! So let’s talk about it!
You can look forward to an iFanboy Special Edition Podcast on Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull released this weekend in conjunction with the Pick of the Week Podcast.
If you haven’t seen the movie yet be forewarned – there be SPOILERS ahoy! So don’t scroll down any further if you are sensitive to that kind of thing.
*There were comic books!
