Indiana Jones Returns in The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
Well, every kid on my block is getting ready for the return of Indiana Jones on May 22nd in the fourth film of the series. It’s really something that the first Indy film, Raiders of the Lost Ark, came out way back in 1981, and that the third film, The Last Crusade, came out in 1989, almost twenty years ago. How times flies!
Well, Harry Ford is now older than Sean Connery was when Connery played Indy’s aging dad in the 1989 film. Needless to say, the special effects wizards will have to work overtime to keep things looking decent! Still, for oldschool fans like me there is an excitement in the air.
Instead of carting out one of the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull trailers for this post, I thought I would get us all in the Indiana Jones mood in a different way. Over at Youtube, my friend Mario (AKA Goldentusk) puts his classically trained voice to the test now and then in an interesting manner. He takes memorable themes from movies, writes funny lyrics to the tunes, and performs the finished product.
His results are consistently excellent. So sit back and enjoy his latest song, Indiana Jones and the Song of Theme.
