Just when you thought our five-year nerd rage over the cinematic garbage that was Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was finally beginning to simmer down, the avid film aficionados over at Screen Junkies have to reopen old wounds and throw in the salt with their latest Honest Trailer tearing apart the aforementioned rubbish blockbuster. Pointing out every single flaw — which is a tad redundant since Kingdom of the Crystal Skull as a whole is a major flaw — with keen observations that lay down the snark in spades, we’re finding it difficult to laugh and control our seething anger at the same time. Damn that cheesy scene of Shia LeBeouf swinging with the monkeys to Hades! Damn it all!
For the record, we actually take umbrage over that snide Legends of the Hidden Temple remark. True, the practical effects are quite outdated, but we’d rather watch an animatronic Olmec head and people fumbling to piece together a silver monkey statue made of styrofoam over Kingdom of the Crystal Skull any day of the week. Heck, we could go for an episode right now!
