I'm fixing to use this on whippersnappersSo here, finally, is my review of “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”, in this week’s Sympatico/MSN DVD column.

Good points: One spectacular visual moment; John Williams’ still-rousing score; seeing Karen Allen again; slowly realizing that Cate Blanchett had made a conscious decision to play her evil Soviet villainess without bending her elbows or knees.

(I’m not sure what it means for the character, but it certainly made the performance more interesting than it might otherwise have been.)

Bad points: … yeah, pretty much everything else.
