Call me narcissist if you must but this blog is all about ME. I have another blog about my kids, whom I love and adore writing about. But I was Nicole a long time before I was mom and I don't intend to give up being Nicole overnight.
You can read all about my kids at Naptime Optional.

I have to admit, I was HIGHLY skeptical. I love the original trilogy. And I love Harrison Ford, in his younger days at least. See, his last several movies have been major flops for me and I was having to admit that maybe he was in fact just getting too old. So I was worried about him trying to do an action adventure film. Plus I was worried about them making the movie too "modern" and ruining all the old Indy fun.
But I was not disappointed! I loved how they gave the whole film that "old skool indiana jones" feeling. And that it had bad Russian accents. I mean what would an Indiana Jones movie be without bad accents? and it was really cheesy in parts, but I loved the cheese because it made it authentic. And the "gross" factor ranked right up there with the faces melting off in Temple of Doom. And I loved all the obscure references to previous Indiana Jones movies.
Of course Harrison Ford is noticeably older than he used to be. It was inevitable. But although I didn't drool over him, like I used to, he still has that little half smile of his that I love that is part of his charm. And he used it so much in this movie that I almost forgave him for all the bad movies he's made in recent years. (I mean did you see Hollywood Homicide? If you didn't DON'T. I'm sure Harrison Ford himself would be happy if you didn't.)
All in all it was great fun. I highly recommend it!!!
