    As a 3-4 minute sketch on SNL this is funny, as a 80 minute feature length film it is annoying as hell!

    Soundtrack is great tho...

    Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

    ★★★★½

    24 years after its release, but still stands above most action films today. It's got a perfect balance between seriousness and fun. I love the dynamic between Ford and Connery! The final shots of the movie when they are riding away from from the city of Petra are amazing!

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Characters, situations, soundtrack, all of it - truly amazing.

    One thing I do know is that it’s safe to say that Superbad now has an overachieving and equally important sister in Booksmart and the teen movie canon will forever be better thanks to the brilliance of this movie.

    Loved the acid trip (HILARIOUS) and the karaoke scene. Amy getting her heart broken felt SO close to my heart; I was in a similar situation though I hadn't come out.

    Amazing editing and brutal (violent, non-apologetic) script are things not well-received nowadays. This couldn't be done outside Korea.

    Haven't seen Brolin's version; highly doubt it'll be even close.
