Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Published: Wednesday 2008-06-04.

We celebrated our three years together last Monday by going to the cinema. Unfortunately none of the films we really wanted to see was shown at the one cinema we where wanted to watch the film at, and at the time we wanted to watch it at, so we ended up at the new Indiana Jones film. Not that there is something wrong with that, really, I do think that Indiana Jones films are quite okay, but it felt like it might not be the right film to celebrate three years together with.

The film starts out at a roped off US military base in the middle of the atomic age in the early 1960s, where the film’s arch villain is looking for a “treasure” that has been hidden away by the military. After only a few minutes our, nowadays rather old, hero has survived both getting shot at, being betrayed and almost blown to pieces, and from there the tempo mostly only increases.

If you have seen an Indiana Jones film before, you will find this one familiar. Yes, Harrison Ford is a bit older (You know, for an old man you ain’t bad in a fight. What are you, like 80?), but after it having been very obvious the for the first few minutes, you don’t notice it that much for the remainder. If you liked Indiana Jones back in the days, you will like Indiana Jones now, but if you hate action with a big dose of humour and a pinch of science fiction, then you will not like this film either.

Det första stycket låter som marknadsföring för Pay-Per-View TV-sändningar: se den film du vill se när och var du vill se den. Ja, "var" beror på i vilka rum man har en TV inkopplad.

Indiana Jones har aldrig tillhört mina idoler, så trots att jag har presentkort på en biobiljett sparar jag nog den ett tag till.

Nytt för i år är att SF-biograferna ska visa EM-fotboll. Undrar om det blir någon succé? Storbildsskärm i all ära, men när folk är sociala i samband med fotbollsmatcher brukar det mer handla om att hänga i en stojig bar med öl och jordnötter än att sitta tyst (?) i ett mörkt rum med en påse popcorn.
