my week at the movies: ‘Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,’ ‘Prince Caspian,’ ‘Stuck,’ ‘Young@Heart’

This billboard in Times Square has been tormenting me for weeks now. I can’t look at it without hearing that dum-da-DUM-DUM, dum-da-dum theme music. I can’t wait to see the movie. And now the wait is almost over: just a few days more. I am seriously geeked. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull opens wide on Thursday, May 22, and I’ll be there again, too, on opening night. Because it’s Indiana Jones. That’s just the way it is.

I saw The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian [opens wide May 16] last night. I feel like such a dirty old lady, but I don’t think it’s really my fault. Why do they keep putting such cute boys in these movies?

Remember that horrible news story about the woman who hit a guy with her car, and the guy languished in the windshield of her car for days? Well, someone made a movie about that: Stuck [opens limited May 30]. Mena Suvari is the driver; Stephen Rea is the victim. I’m curious to see what could be said about such inexplicable inhumanity.

Young@Heart [now playing in limited release] is a documentary about old people who do rock ‘n’ roll. I guess no one told them that there’s nothing really all that odd about that: have they seen Keith Richards lately?
