How can you resist a review of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull that begins with “Lucas, Spielberg, Ben Burtt – the legends of film making. The film masters. Ben Burtt is the guy who did the Lightsaber sounds.”
Ok, so this video review is from some fifteen year old kid in his basement and I really shouldn’t make fun… but come on: “I like the fact that in the opening, in the military base, they played that music, like in Raiders of the Lost Ark; I was like man, this really feels like a classic film.” Click inside and watch the video If you want to know how he drew this conclusion: “I don’t usually give a rating, but Raiders of the Lost Ark, Crystal Skull and Last Crusade are all tied. And the lowest is Temple of Doom.”
His name is Goten2255 (or at least that’s his YouTube handle and how he refers to himself). I can’t recall the exact nature of the clicks that brought me this gem, but as hard as it’s going to be, do yourself a favor and watch all nine minutes of this and the second part. Coughs and all.
George Lucas really knows how to do the 1950s… he did it with the American Graffiti… I’ve never seen that movie, but I heard about it… what I liked was the women dressed like how they were in the 1950s, the guys dressed how like they were in the 1950s, they even had the the town look like the 1950s and such, like the milk shakes.
Hollywood, I don’t know what happened to you guys – these are the films that needed to come back. I don’t know what happened. Where’s the magic? The classic trilogies had magic in them. And the other thing about it – they had a lot of magic. It’s kind of odd to see that Hollywood is not the same anymore like it was in the past.
I think this guy is going to be famous and such.
