Next Indiana Jones?

Do you remember the skinny teenager Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) in the movie Transformers? I remember mentioning in my previous review of Transformers that this kid has potential. well.. he'll be the next Indiana Jones!

Shia LaBeouf played the role Henry Jones III, son of Indiana Jones in the latest movie, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. LaBeouf was Spielberg's first and only choice for the role. Harrison Ford (now 66) is too old to continue the sequel, so i guess LaBeouf is bound to continue the legacy of the Joneses.

In the movie, Henry III is the son of Marion Ravenwood (played by Karen Allen), a tough yet charming and smart woman, who was first seen as young tavern owner in Nepal in the first film, Raiders of the Lost Ark. whom Indy had a relationship. It was not known until the latest sequel that he had a son with her.

It's nice to see the continuity from the first movie to the latest sequel.. I'm gonna give it an 8/10 rating. But I'll stay with my feel that Raiders of the Lost Ark as my most favorite movie ever. 10/10!

Uhmm.. well... let's wait for the next sequel.

Shia LaBeouf has the makings of a serious method actor (aka improvisational actor), a heartfelt scene in 'Crystal Skull' exposed his sensitivity giving a stunning performance even if the teary-eyed scene he showed wasn't even called for. Yes, Shia LaBeouf has the potential of a Marlon Brando and a James Dean if he would shy away from popcorn movies such as Indiana Jones, Transformers and other gimmicky summer movies.

it seems like Shia LaBeouf's popularity has skyrocketed in the last year or so
