NaNi Reviews Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

We all trekked off to see Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull on Saturday, including Naomi.*

Here’s her review:

Indiana Jones was amazing. Sam [Shia LeBeouf, playing Mutt Williams, whom she recognizes as Sam Witwicky from Transformers] was old! He had a mustache and beard, and I was, like, “What the heck?”

We asked NaNi if she had a favorite part, and she explained, “No; I loved all of it.”


Naomi can’t wait to review this upcoming release from Disney-Pixar.


(*Yes, I know you wouldn’t take your 4-year-old to see a possibly frightening movie, but she really wanted to go, even after knowing it might be scary. So we did take her, after instructing her on how to close her eyes and snuggle up with Mom if there was anything she found scary on screen, and that we would not be taking her out to the lobby. She did need to close her eyes once or twice, but it was David—age 9—who was the most frightened, but only in one part, and he used the same technique to deal with it.

Hey, she’s our kid, and has been raised on a steady diet of appropriate action-adventure, fantasy, and sci-fi films, such as Star Wars, Superman, The Lord of the Rings, and Barbie Swan Lake. Get over it.)

  1. I still get freaked out when Odette turns into a swan in Barbie: Swan Lake. And don’t even get me started on when Duchess Rowena shows up in Barbie in the 12 Dancing Princesses! 😉

  2. I said I was comfortable taking NaNi to the Indiana Jones film. I’m not sure I’d be comfortable taking you, Mark.

    Remember all the fuss you made during Toy Story 2?

  3. Ha! That’s a GREAT story!

    Okay, I’ll re-tell it for your readership.

    I I remember correctly, you had old me that you and Nichelle were going to go see the premiere of Toy Story 2, so I got a devilish idea. I said to Shelby, my beloved wife, “hey, let’s go too and sit behind them and be obnoxious!”

    So we showed up at the Theatre, and looked around for you guys, and didn’t see you! So we were like, “This is a bummer. Oh well, at least we’ll enjoy the movie.”

    So we started watching the movie and out of the corner of my eye I saw you guys come into the room. And out of the WHOLE room, you came and sat in the row RIGHT IN FRONT OF US, and so Shelby and I were sliding down so you wouldn’t see us, and you sat RIGHT IN FRONT OF US! It was perfect! We couldn’t have planned it that well!

    So as the movie progressed, I started doing obnoxious things (a stretch for me, I know), like pushing your seat with my feet, and stuff like that.

    I noticed you repositioning yourself, and being a bit uncomfortable. Shelby and I could hardly contqain all our giggling!

    So I decided to up the ante a bit and push harder and more often. And coughing. And stuff like that. I was about to reach over and take some of your popcorn when you finally looked back to see who it was who was pestering you!

    Ticket price: $8.00
    Gas to the theatre: $2.36
    Seeing the look on Doug’s face when he realized it was ME doing all that to him: PRICELESS!

  4. Hey Mark, correction…you most certainly did reach your hand into my popcorn and you were being a pain in my butt too by pushing on my seat. It was funny though!!!

  5. What’s wrong with those movie choices? Surprised you didn’t add in the Incredible Hulk and the Matrix…

  6. I am pretty sure NaNi has seen the “Lobby Shooting Spree” from The Matrix, but not more than that.

    I might take her to see The Hulk, but David has been lobbying for Kung Fu Panda.
