...

I spent a long weekend in Vegas for family stuff. Sorry for the no posting. Well, not really. I had a fun (busy) time. I saw Indy 4. I'll post my thoughts once I have a chance to properly confront my feelings. And I still owe you comics reviews, don't I? We'll see how that goes. Anyway, I'm back. How much did you miss me?

You better post about the Indy thing before the only word you can muster is "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"

a friend of mine invited me to see indy but i refused on principle. the whole marketing campaign really annoys me. i can see 20 ads on tv for the film but none of them are the actual movie ad. just ads for indy inspired whoppers or toys or laundry detergent.

which now that i think about it would be sorta cool seeing as how dirty indy gets on his adventures.

my friend HATED the new indy!!

I'm still working through my thoughts. I don't think I hated it (I'd rate it a B-), but it definitely has problems.

And I know what you mean about the tie-ins. I mean, at least you won't get something as obvious as the BK placement in Iron Man (I kept expecting RDJ to say "Mmmmm. Now that's a tasty Whopper." on his way to the press conference), but it's still annoying.

That said, I loved that stuff when I was a kid (collectable glasses, toys, Underoos, whatever), so ... I dunno.

don't get wrong dylan. i loved my star wars toys and collectible glasses (which my mom still has in her china cabinet!) but the thing is it kinda makes sense that star wars was marketed to kids. i don't really remember the first 3 indy films being sooooo heavily marketed to kids.

and that whopper ad placement in iron man was pretty bold. but i forgive it as the rest of that flick was AWESOME!

Don't let the fog of time fool you, Indy was pretty hugely cross-promoted. No decent action figures, but I distinctly remember Burger King cups and all that jazz.
