I was never supposed to like Indiana Jones, and his treasure-hunting ways. Cause real archaeologists don’t treasure hunt, they do archaeology. Hrumph. How way cool were the first three movies, though, especially the first? They tapped into that adventurer within each of us. Indiana Jones, the anti-superhero with a bullwhip instead of a cape. Sigh.
But now Harrison Ford is old-er. And in interviews, he’s a bit odd, don’t you think. I’m worried about this movie. But nothing will stop me from going, and ordering the big popcorn with butter-flavored artery clogging slime. And extra salt.
I was a practicing archaeologist (never got it quite right), but I wrote two books–Mayan Nights and Mayan Secrets, more because of Indiana Jones than because of grad school.
Better than my books is the You-Tube vid above.
