Oh Dear God, No, Not An Indiana Jones 5

Before I start, let me just say that I am not a huge fan of the Indiana Jones movies, not by a long shot.  I never watched them as a kid, just like I never watched Star Wars. I watched them when I was a teenager because my best friend wants the best for me and, for what it’s worth (and also please don’t hate me for this), I liked Indiana Jones way more than Star Wars, although I never got to watch The Last Crusade. I did watch the Crystal Skull nonsense though.  So just know that I am not taking this from a fanatical viewpoint, I am taking this from the viewpoint of someone who enjoys quality films.

Here’s the Shia LaBeouf quote that made me weep for the future of cinema:

“I talked to Harrison. He said he’s staying in the gym. He said he’s heard no word, but he does know that George [Lucas] is out there looking for a MacGuffin (plot device),” said LaBeouf. “He said he’s staying in the gym, so it means, you know, it’s not so far off.”

So basically it sounds like Harrison Ford is just waiting around while George Lucas figures out how to best twist and mar the beautiful memories and dreams of children of the 80′s. Fantastic.

The way I see it, I’m either completely justified in my fears for all you hardcore Indy fans or I just need to calm my heart and stop feeling so strongly about things I’m not that invested in. What do you guys think?

Indiana Jones, or Han Solo, Married the Original Skeletor Yesterday

Harrison Ford married his long-term girlfriend Calista Flockhart yesterday in a ceremony at the Governor’s Mansion in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  Ford is currently shooting Cowboys and Aliens there.  And the movie?  Sounds … just great.

When I was a little girl, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom was just about my favorite movie ever. I wanted to marry “Indy.” And due to recent events, I can definitely say, in retrospect, that my little girl-self would be rolling over in her pink Jem pajamas to find out that he married Calista Flockhart, the actress formerly known as Skeletor.

While Calista looks beautiful and attractive these days, I can’t help but always be reminded of her crazy-skinny years, where the mere idea of sex with Indy Ford could result in a trip to the hospital for a broken clavicle. Or something.

Congrats to the happy couple!
