Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
The last in our Indiana Jones #tbt series is finally here. Our last crusade so to speak, or more accurately Indy’s. The conclusion to an amazing trilogy that definitely does not have a forth movie about aliens in South America and crazy Commies.
It’s 1938 and Indy is already in trouble. His dad has gone missing while searching for the Holy Grail. Indy must travel all over Europe in search of his dad who has been kidnapped by… drum roll please… Nazis! Indy rescues his dad and the two return to searching for the grail. Things don’t go as planned and the Nazis make a mess of things, go figure. If you want to know what happens you should go watch it.
The Last Crusade was released May 24, 1989. It tied up the lose ends of the other two movies and gave Indy a nice retirement. Made yet again by George Lucas and Steven Spielberg the movie wasn’t half bad. It wasn’t nearly as dark as Temple of Doom and gave a nice background on Indy and his Dad who was played by Sean Connery.
I didn’t hate the movie. All things considered I didn’t think it was half bad. I have seen worse and I honestly feel it was better then Temple of Doom. It added a new adventure but didn’t betray the other movies. Overall I would give it a 7/10 🙂
Tune in next week when we start “scary” and “Halloween” geek movies to celebrate Spooktober!
