Jonesing for the new Indy?

Many places are doing midnight shows on Wednesday of "Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull," including the Carmike 15. Get yer tickets in advance.

The movie's scoring well at Rotten Tomatoes. It's also in the green on Metacritic.com, which I like better since it presents a weighted average. It's a good popcorn flick — that's the consensus. Don't expect anything groundbreaking (the way "Raiders" was in 1981), but it fits in nicely with the other three films.

***Spoiler alert***
Highlight the rest of this line for a key plot point: Indiana Jones is... old now.

My 'child of the seventies' self is gonna be at the midnight show. Trying not to have my expectations set *too* high. There've been a handful of unkind reviews.

i keep thinking Cate Blanchett is going to speak English with a German accent in the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull as Jones tends to go against Nazis, (but, of course the bad guys are Russian this time)
