Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

From 1989, Steven Spielberg’s third leg of the Indiana Jones trilogy doesn’t quite match the first, but the interplay between Sean Connery (as Indy Sr.) and Harrison Ford is awfully fun to watch. It’s a first-rate popcorn movie, with Nazis we love to hate, a big improvement over Temple of Doom. Denholm Elliot also helps to class up the non-action sequences, and the late River Phoenix does nothing but action stuff during the film’s nifty opening sequence, a sad reminder of what might’ve been. The film begins a series of 70mm presentations at the Cinerama; beginning Nov. 15 is Terminator 2: Judgment Day. (PG-13) BRIAN MILLER
