‘Indiana Jones’ Trilogy Honest Trailer: The Adventures of a Terrible Professor and Archaeologist

The adventures of Indiana Jones make up a near-perfect trilogy where the biggest problem is that they didn’t just come to an end. Instead, we got the disaster that is Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which is why we’re getting an Honest Trailer of just the original Indiana Jones trilogy. Though you may not have realized it after repeat viewings, Dr. Henry Jones Jr. is actually both a terrible professor and an awful archaeologist, and it’s kind of an undeniable fact. Indian...

‘The Mandalorian’ Moves the Pieces Into Place for a Killer Climax With “The Reckoning”

Naturally, there are spoilers here. This episode opens with a message from Greef Carga. If the Mandalorian wants to make things right by the Imperial client (Werner Herzog’s character) and the Bounty Hunting Guild, he needs to return back to Nevarro with the child (referred to by many as “Baby Yoda.”) But Greef offers a chance at a double-cross. If the Mando can kill the client,  then everyone will get what they want and he’ll be straight with the guild. Not trusting Greef’s word, the M...

Bistarai: A Trail of Gold Through Nepal

With the fire popping and hissing, the tavern owner leaned forward to caution the foreign visitors. His face, made ancient and timeless by the flickering light, was creased with concern as he spoke, “Bistarai, my friends. Tomorrow you must go dherai bistarai.” Seeing the confusion in his guests’ faces, he smiled and explained, “Slowly. When you go up the steep climb, go very slowly.” Something about that moment up at Pikey Peak, a viewpoint for Mt. Everest situated in the middle of the Solukhum...

‘Indiana Jones 5’ Will Return in 2020 Without Shia LaBeouf’s Mutt

Shia LaBeouf won’t inherit be the heir apparent to Harrison Ford‘s whip-wielding archaeologist after all. LaBeouf’s character Mutt Williams, who was the secret son of Indiana Jones and Karen Allen‘s Marion Ravenwood, won’t appear in Indiana Jones 5 at all after the character’s lackluster reception in the widely maligned Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Now it’s a matter of finding out how long Ford is willing to continue donning the fedora, or whether a new “successor” will b...

Family Viewing: 'Raiders of the Lost Ark'

Once upon a time: It's 1936, and professor/archaeologist/adventurer Indiana Jones gets a secret assignment from the U.S. Government - go find the long-lost, holy and impossibly powerful Ark of the Covenant before the Nazis get it first, and turn it into a world-conquering weapon. Well, OK, but pretty soon Indy has more than just Nazis to contend with - including heavily muscled swordsmen, his old tomb-plundering rival Belloq, and spirited Marion Ravenwood, an ex-girlfriend with a long memory.
