Indiana Jones The Ultimate Guide - Jim Luceno


Synopsis:
Since his debut in 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark, fans have followed the adventures of learned scholar and hunky professor Indiana Jones. He is the unlikely action-hero who undertakes perilous adventures involving snakes, rats, spiders, and villains, in order to stop powerful, mystical artifacts from falling into the wrong hands. With a fourth installment underway, fans can brush up on their Indy knowledge and relive the archeologist’s best—and worst—moments.
Packed with a wealth of information from all four movies—about the characters, movie story lines, ancient ruins and artifacts, the history, and the mysticism – Indiana Jones: The Ultimate Guide provides fans with everything they need to know about the unconventional archeologist and his world.

My Opinion:
I love Indiana Jones, and all the things that go along with it, so when I saw this book I jumped out of my seat! I couldn't wait for it to arrive and I could get a dose of adventure.
I had no idea what a well put together book I was going to receive.
This book is Fantastic with a capital F!
It touches on every part of the Indiana Jones history, so much so I almost forgot he is just a character. It was all that believable.
I thought I knew everything there was to know about Indy and the movies, comics and such. I soon learned different. I got a chance to know some new stuff in this book, plus I appreciate the movie more now knowing how much detail and hard work has gone into all of the movies especially.
Hats off to the author and DK for this one!
And if you love Indiana as much as I do, get a copy!

5/5

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would

#Win 1917 (US/CDN)

AVAILABLE MARCH 24! RATED R 119 minutes AMAZON April 1917, the Western Front. Two British soldiers are sent to deliver an urgent message to an isolated regiment. If the message is not received in time the regiment will walk into a trap and be massacred. To get to the regiment they will need to cross through enemy territory. Time is of the essence and the journey will be fraught with danger. Starring Colin Firth. REVIEW: So it wasn't the best war movie I've ever seen, but it was still good. The cinematography is amazing! So rich and with so much detail. The story is just okay though. Two soliders sent to stop the front lines from walking into a trap. Not that interesting and often predictable. A few yelling at the screen moments happened, not gonna lie. How it was all brought together, mixed with a tug on the emotional heart strings is what is makes it good. Watched it with the hubby. He was engaged throughout, so that was good. He's n
