Happy Father's Day!

We're celebrating the vast cornucopia of filmic father/child relationships this month, and INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE reminds us that we're often more like our Dads than we'd normally admit. Be it similar tastes in women, a sneering contempt for Nazis, or our obsessive, globetrotting quests for ancient relics... we get a lot of it from the old man. Sean Connery has a rollicking good time as Henry Jones, Senior against Harrison Ford's Junior (in reality they're only 12 years apart in age) in this, the final entry in the Indiana Jones saga.

We're also screening a bunch of other Dad movies Father's Day weekend: Michael Keaton in MR. MOM, Arnold Schwarzenegger's robo-foster father in TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY, and Gene Hackman's last great role in THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS (with booze and cheese pairings from Antonelli's)!

The man with the hat is back. And this time, he's bringing his dad.

If you learned anything from Raiders of the Lost Ark, it's that Nazis are bad dudes, and, after a pulse-pounding prologue that gives us a compressed Young Adventures of Indiana Jones, they are right back at it. This time, our swastika-wearing baddies are after the famed cup of Christ, and it's up to Indy and his dad to save the day.

When Indy's father goes mysteriously missing, a rich art collector puts our whip-snapping, fedora-wearing hero on the case. Following in his father's footsteps, Indy reveals a sinister plot and must save his father from a Nazi kidnapping while avoiding the tempestuous allure of an extremely blue-eyed, blond-haired lady.

This movie is pure action-adventure and will have your heart skipping several beats as Indy and his dad trot the globe and narrowly avoid death at every turn as they leap from tanks to planes to impossible battles before coming face-to-face with one of the most powerful legends in human history. When it comes to absolute excitement in a movie theater this summer...please choose wisely. (Greg MacLennan)
