Indiana Jones and the Blog-a-thon Nexus

The nexus was never an artifact (read: MacGuffin) that Indy was ever compelled to seek, but it should have been. Post your links at the comments section, or email them to me, and I'll put them up here. Laters skaters.

Update (28/05/08) - Thanks to everyone who took part in the blog-a-thon last week. It was a great laugh, and I received some wonderful feedback (not to mention my first ever hate-mail - yay) from people all over the world. Blog-a-thon Hotwash and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull review coming soon. Laters.

24/05/08 -

- Drake Lelane knows the score.

Jonathan Lapper said...

Just an F.Y.I - I probably have a couple of simpler, more cheerful posts up for this before the blogathon's over.

Ali Arikan said...

Awesome, Jonathan. Can't wait to read them, too.

Raiders of the Lost Ark popular among box historians

Michael J. Mendez said...

Just got back form a midnight screening. Liked it, didn't love it, going back again today for a better opinion.

The Mad Hatter said...

The Blog-a-Thon was a fabulous idea, and I wish I'd found out about it sooner so I could have contributed. All great pieces though.

Saw I4 last night and quite enjoyed it. Here's my review...

Truth_First said...

White Americans will watch another "Indiana Jones" film tomorrow which follows the exploits of a celebrated grave-robber and destroyer of indigenous cultures. These films consistency portray people of colour in an insensitive fashion and are filled with historical inaccuracies. The white man stole knowledge from Africa and destroyed the great library at Alexandria to hide his crimes. Now he makes films celebrating this kind of thievery.

I saw CRYSTAL SKULLS last night and I was deeply dissappointed. While the action is still superbly directed, it was just such an empty exercise. No sir. I don't like it.

TO THE POST ABOVE.
You're quite stupid.

Dan said...

Hey - I've enjoyed the bejesus out of the Indy blog-a-thon. My review of Indy 4 is here:

Jason Bellamy said...

Not even John Williams score could save this one:

drake leLane said...

Yeah, Williams score was the only thing I could bring myself to write about:
John Williams and the Crystal Skull Persuasion

This has been a great collection!

RC said...

whew...i hoped to get this pounded out earlier, but only finished rewatching the third film last night.

My post is here: http://www.strangecultureblog.com/2008/05/quality-80s-part-xii-special-indiana.html

Anne Lanphar said...

This is the most intellectually insulting film since Blair Witch Project. The prior films pushed credibility with the adventure but this fourth film is simply ludicrous. The historical information (to the extent there is any) is plain wrong. For example, Indy says that the Egyptians were sunworshippers which is simply dead wrong.
I think they should refund the money spent on this film as it was a complete scam...
