Movie Review!

Well I am sure all of you have seen the new Indiana Jones Movie, so I will keep this short!

On my last post I told you that I enjoyed the movie but there were some things that did bug me! The movie was good, it followed the whole Indiana Jones type of story and lots of action and funny parts. So in that respect I liked it and I would recommend it to you! Now here are the things that bugged me about the movie!

You can totally tell that the movie was either computer animated (CA) or filmed in front of a green screen. I have this thing that since the movies that were filmed before out on location somewhere, were so good and such a hit and probably a really hard thing to top, I think that this film should have had the same attention brought to it. Yes, I understand that now CA is probably the cheaper way to go and all but come on. This movie made well here is the chart:

Domestic Total as of Oct. 16, 2008: $317,023,851
Distributor: Paramount
Release Date: May 22, 2008
Genre: Period Adventure
Running Time: 2 hrs. 0 min.
MPAA Rating: PG-13
Production Budget: $185 million

by the way that is not the worldwide total if you care you can go here

So do you see why to me they should have gone out and filmed this movie to have the authenticity of the older movies. Especially since it was filmed to be in the era of the 1950's!

Well that is all. I bought the movie, I don't mind the movie, I think that my family will enjoy it. I just don't like that everything is looking so fake and unreal in movies now.

So let me get this straight...you either wish that Holllywood would fire all the new CG people they have which would in turn force them back to "on location" movie making OR you wish that they would use the money they WOULD have used to make "Indiana Jones and The Skull Of Some Sort" and given it to the government to repair the damage of the bill they just passed since the movie really wasn't the caliber of film that the previous three Indiana Jones have been?
Am I right? Am I close?

I didn't like the whole alien thing. I can deal with CA. Save the Aliens for Unsolved Mysteries. That show scared me.
