3 things about Steven Spielberg’s INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull [2008]

1. The weather-beaten Rolodex on the desk in Indy’s study at home. The edges of the cards are feathered from use. Also on the desk, two completely inauthentic framed photographs of Denholm Elliott and Sean Connery; they look like the movie stills that they probably are.
2. The Russian being devoured by ants. CGI ants. CGI Russian too, probably.
3. The nice cameo by the Ark near the beginning. It’s set up very well too, because when the sequence begins you think you won’t end up seeing it. But then suddenly you do. Whereas almost every other “surprise” in the movie is telegraphed.
