Title of new 'Indiana Jones' revealed

Editor's Note: Once again, PlanoKevin leads the pack in sending me items that DEMAND posting. (Despite my current oppressive work schedule).


Title of new 'Indiana Jones' revealed

The "Jones" cast: Shia LaBeouf, Steven Spielberg, Karen Allen (seated), Ray Winstone and Harrison Ford.

Editor's Note: Is it just me, or is Indy looking almost frail? (Jeez, how did our lovely Han Solo become such a GEEZER)? Meanwhile, Karen Allen does not appear to have aged at ALL. (And she's a leading part in this??? YAY!!!!)

NEW YORK (AP) -- The title of the new "Indiana Jones" movie, directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Harrison Ford, has been revealed.

"Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" will be in theaters May 22, 2008. Editor's Note: Coincidence that the words "Crystal Skull" are in the title of a movie that opens on OddBob's birthday? (Seeing as how we are reasonably sure he FELL on his head and something BROKE)?

The title of the long-awaited fourth installment of the adventure series was announced by Shia LaBeouf, who co-stars with Ford in the film, at the MTV Video Music Awards in Las Vegas on Sunday.

The new Indy adventure, which is set in the 1950s, also stars Cate Blanchett, Ray Winstone, John Hurt, Jim Broadbent and Karen Allen.

Sean Connery, who played dad to Ford's globe-trotting archaeologist in 1989's "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade," will not reprise the role in the new movie.

The series began in 1981 with "Raiders of the Lost Ark," followed by "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" in 1984.

In promotional photos, the 65-year-old Ford appears fit as ever. Editor's Note: Umm...okay..... If you say so. Bet we won't be getting any more of that shirt-off/bodybyJake action?

"I have to say, he looks amazing," Kathleen Kennedy, the film's co-executive producer, along with George Lucas, told The Associated Press in July. "He looks fantastic in the outfit." Editor's Note: Ok, now you're just bein a TEASE.

Editor's Note: I have been accused of abandoning my dweebly responsibilities. While this is technically accurate (yesyesyes, it's been a heap of time since I've dweeblogged), since the finger being pointed is that of a jobless, feckless MIME, does it count?

Back to that whole treeinforestnoonehearsit thing.....

SO. HERE, you silly Mimey ODDBOB. Take THAT!

The Top 10 Rejected Star Trek Spinoffs
10> Quark Shadows
9> The Q Files, starring Q and Agent Scully
8> How I Met Your First Officer
7> Desperate Klingons
6> Geordi Loves Scotty
5> Federation Idol: The Ten-Forward lounge is the center stage in this search for the next big "star". Q covers "Me and Mrs. Jones" and wows the audience!
4> The Surreal Plot
3> The Viewscreen: Guinan, Counselor Troi & Neelix host a succession of warm and fuzzy feel-good book authors and other personality-impaired personalities. Show is universally despised by males, as well as Klingons of either gender. Only lasts half a season before entire cast is fed on-camera to a ravenous alien carnivore by their own stagehands.
2> Data-line NBC: To Catch A Soongian Android Duplicate
and the Number 1 Rejected Star Trek Spinoff...
1> Surak, Sarek and Spock in: Two and a Half Vulcans
Editor's Note: Hardly worth the wait, huh?

OddBob Wraps up Harry Potter Week (as only OddBob can)

Editor's Note: Midnight tonight!!! (I think I need a nap.....)

The Top 13 Guesses at the Last Line of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" (Part II)

"Not tonight, Ginny -- I'm watching the Quidditch match."

"And lo, Harry's spirit passed forth from the realm of hardcover releases, and into a series of ghost-written paperbacks unto eternity."

"Holding Voldemort's severed head high in the air, Dudley sneered at Harry's sniveling form in the corner, and exclaimed, 'No more fat jokes, cousin.'"

"I'd like you to meet my new associate, Nearly Headless Hermione."

"Hermione, on the other hand, decided to give up the whole wizard shtick and become a dancer at a gentleman's club called The Caldron in Hogsmeade."

"Okay, Ron, now it's time for a little Paycheckium Cashicus!!"

"It was the same as the last six closing remarks that I'd heard from Dumbledore: 'If you tell your parents, I swear to God, I'll kill you in your sleep,'"

"Hermione pressed her heaving bosom against Harry and the two stepped over Ron's smoking remains, mounted his broom and flew off with hopes of a new life in a land where screaming orgasms wouldn't incinerate everything in a 50-foot radius."

"Harry trudged down the lane, devastated at the news that he was the only one who'd have to repeat 7th year."

"So, in the end, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named was undone by the love that dare not speak its name."

"Harry put a quarter in the juke box on the diner table and flipped through the song list, finally settling on Journey's 'Don't Stop Believing.'"

"Hey, this Bott's Bean tastes like cyani--"

and the Number 1 Guesses at the Last Line of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows"...

"And then Harry woke up from his dream to find himself still on the scaffold, with the angry citizens of Salem Village clamoring for his death."
