“I’ve got a bad feeling about this. “
Remember the first time a Hollywood movie reboot “ruined childhood?” So do we… Sigh.
It was Spring, 2008, and for the fourth time, Harrison Ford strapped on his world-weary fedora as archaeologist Dr. Indiana Jones. Though he no longer had to contend with pesky Nazis (all their faces got melted off by 1945), Cold War Indy does get to go up against a Communist Cate Blanchett, have some romantical nostalgic moments with the ever-lovely Karen Allen (cue the violins!), share some awkward scenes (is there any other kind?) with Shia La Boeuf, and of course… Ants.
And that’s just the tip of the cinematic iceberg! Let The Gentlemen Hecklers provide you with their unique brand of live, hilarious commentary – for the best bad movies! Eric Fell, Patrick Maliha, and Shaun Stewart are Vancouver’s masters of movie riffing, making so-bad-they’re-good movies even better by talking you through them.

INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL (Steven Spielberg, 2008 / 222 mins) During the Cold War, Soviet agents watch Professor Henry Jones when a young man brings him a coded message from an aged, demented colleague, Henry Oxley. Led by the brilliant Irina Spalko, the Soviets tail Jones and the young man, Mutt, to Peru. With Oxley’s code, they find a legendary skull made of a single piece of quartz. If Jones can deliver the skull to its rightful place, all may be well; but if Irina takes it to its origin, she’ll gain powers that could endanger the West. Aging professor and young buck join forces with a woman from Jones’s past to face the dangers of the jungle, Russia, and the supernatural.
