I went to see Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull on Saturday with my daughter Mira. We went to the Cineramadome at the Arclight Theater in Hollywood for the best possible viewing.
Normally I'd give my review of the movie, but something very strange happened during the showing.
After about 2/3 of the movie, there must have been a mix-up in the projection booth. For some reason instead of playing the final 1/3 of the movie, inexplicably what appeared to be some sort of Scientology video appeared on screen. There were glass space aliens sitting in chairs, hidden spaceships, and suggestions that human development was guided by aliens (thetans?). It was all quite bizarre with lots needless special effects and a complete lack of a comprehensive storyline.
I need to go see it again, to see the real ending of the movie in which Lucas and Spielberg wrap up the story lines regarding father & son development, the FBI involvement, and many other ideas brought up in the first 2/3rds of the movie. I mean there's no way Spielberg and Lucas would resort to a Deux ex Machina ending without any sort of moral message or triumph of good people over evil.
If anyone else saw that strange Scientology video, I think we should complain as a group.Posted by michael at June 03, 2008 05:32 PM
