Not only is this Valentine's day a moment when I can stop and reflect on the love that I have for the wonderful woman that chose to marry me, but it is also a day when I am reminded how much I love the Indiana Jones series.
If you didn't notice already the official trailer was released today. If you haven't seen it yet, stop reading my blog and view it now by clicking here.
Growing up when other kids were dreaming about being Luke Skywalker or James Bond I was imagining myself as Indiana Jones. Seriously folks, is there anyone more cool? In my mind the equation is really simple:
Whip + Amazing Adventure + Scary Reptiles/Insects + Strong Minded Beautiful Female = Awesome Movie (That I'm going to watch a hundred times till the lines are infused in my soul)
"Cover your heart Indy!" - Short Round (Temple of Doom)
"Snakes. Why'd it have to be snakes?" - Indiana Jones (Raiders of the Lost Ark)
"Don't call me junior!" - Indian Jones (The Last Crusade)
"It's not the years, honey, it's the mileage." - Indiana Jones (Raiders of the Lost Ark)
"You have chosen wisely." - The Knight (The Last Crusade)
And my all time favorite delivered on the Nazi Zeppelin by Indiana Jones in "The Last Crusade":
May 22, 2008 can hardly come soon enough! The trailer looks like the movie will not disappoint unlike the 3 most recent Star Wars films. Then again it's hard to disappoint when you have both Lucas and Spielberg working together.
All I need now are some scary insects and a whip and my dream has become a reality.
