INDY-A-THON



Saturday Night, little Jes and I threw a Indiana Jones movie marathon to prepare for the fourth film that opens this week. We had a bunch of friends over and muscled our way through all three movies. Party ended at about 2 AM. We went overboard decorating- the kitchen was the jungle with buried treasure chest, the living room had photos of Indy and the dining room was the map room. We had snakes scattered about, because Indy hates snakes. One of my friends had the crazy idea to put a heart in a jello mold and someone should have to pull it out like in Temple of Doom (a better idea on paper than in life). We also made some grails, the holy one- had a shot of water, the rest vodka. But the best way to get through all the movies is to make it a drinking game. So we made a bunch of jungle juice and used rules like every time the theme music played, or any time Indy lost his hat or punched someone. All in all I think the party was a success and help everyone to get excited about Indiana Jones again, too bad I hear the movie FOUR isn't so hot.

Wish I was there. Sounds like fun. Aunt Jeanette and Unk are here and are really enjoying the blog. The Bitter Redhead needs to send another invite to the Freeds to join up.

Yeah, sounds like a fun party. I've never seen anyone go through that much trouble to theme a movie marathon, but you guys get an A for effort. Can you believe I've never seen an Indiana Jones all the way through that I can remember. Nor a Star Wars and I've never seen any of the Godfathers either. I know shame on me.

Wow, your party sounds much more enjoyable than the last couple of Indy movies. I don't think I ever made it past the first one...

The party was pretty fun until I fell asleep in the second movie. At least I got to see Raiders again...

So. How crappy was the crystal skull? I can't believe it, what a bummer. Looney tunesque CGI, aliens, Indy translating Mayan hybrid languages in less than 2 seconds, man-eating ants, corny ground hogs and the crystal skull looked like an art project my mom's 4th graders would make with aluminum foil and paper mache. This was the first movie I've ever felt like I wasted two and half hours on that I'll never get back. Lucas/Speilberg, I spit on you.

Aliens are real!! The movie was based in truth! It is where the skulls come from!

I bought it anyway. But I am easily persuaded.
