Indiana Jones & The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008)

Famed archaeologist Dr. Henry "Indiana" Jones is called back into action when he becomes entangled in a Soviet plot to uncover the secret behind mysterious artifacts known as the Crystal Skulls.

Not an Indy fan, so I watched this with no expectations although I've read the reviews. Some Indy fans may be disappointed with this film. I think some scenes and props do not make sense. Cate Blanchett did well as the heavily–accented Irina Spalko, and so does Karen Allen as Marion Ravenwood.

Rating: 2/5.

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (2008)

The Pevensie siblings return to Narnia, where they are enlisted to once again help ward off an evil king and restore the rightful heir to the land's throne, Prince Caspian.

This is by far the best Disney film I have ever watched. There is a good balance of drama and humour with great cast, soundtracks, cinematography and visual effects. Love the battle scenes and tactics.

Rating: 3.5/5.
