96 – Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989)

Indy and his dad have a quick three-way.

Indy and his dad have a quick three-way.

Indiana Jones is a hardcore pornographic film focusing on the life and times of a nymphomaniac called Diana Jones.I wish.No,but seriously I’ve probably seen this film about 4 times now and i don’t know if it’s the old age or what,but i don’t remember seeing that bit at the start with River Phoenix in it.I thought i had downloaded the wrong film or something.It’s a flashback to when Indy was a kid and busted some tomb raiders and not the sexy kind.He also doesn’t give a shit about snakes,he even handles about 3 in this short segment.Why’s he got beef with them when he’s older?As the story goes Indys is kidnapped by some Nazis who are looking for the Holy Grail.His dad mailed Indy his diary which has a load of clues for finding it and that’s kind of the incentive for the kidnapping.Get Indy to come and find his dad and bring the book.There’s some great one liners along the way,one of the more notable ones is the “no ticket” after he chucks a guy out of a blimp.There’s a bit of distance between Indy and his dad but as the film progresses they bond and everyone lives happily ever after.I was going to say its one of the better trilogy’s out there but then i remembered about that god awful Crystal Skull re-boot and my heart sunk.

123 – Blade Runner (1982)

Worst part of Bladerunner? Daryl Hannah and her stupid hair.

I have to give it to Ridley Scott for Bladerunner,i can’t imagine trying to make this in 1982 without the CGI and all the bells and whistles we have today.The large sets,the props,the wardrobe the locations are all pretty amazing looking.For those who don’t know Bladerunner is a movie adaptation of Phillip K.Dicks book ‘Do androids dream of electric sheep’.Dicks was an amazing sci-fi writer and many of his books were made into some top notch films.These include;Total Recall,A scanner darkly and Minority Report just to name a few.The plot outline is that Ford is a Bladerunner a specialist cop that hunts and kills humanoid robots (or replicants).There are 6 new model replicants that have busted out of their jobs,which usually consist of stuff too dangerous for humans to do-slave labour really,and have arrived on earth.This is all set in some sort of dystopian future in L.A. in 2019.A visually astounding film.But shame i seen it about 4 months ago so wasn’t 100% focused on it.It would have better if they cast someone else as Daryl Hannahs character maybe Sharon Stone or Michelle Pfeiffer.
