Raiders of the Lost Ark
- I've never been a fan of all-nighters, and flat-out refused to do them in college. But movies about all-nighters are always fun. Check out the latest Cinematical Seven: Movies That Pull an All-Nighter.
- I saw Borat the night it opened and thought it was absolutely hilarious. So why do I have absolutely zero interest in seeing Bruno? Cinematical bit the bullet: you can read their review here.
- The summer of 1981 was the first summer I was alive, so I probably wasn't watching too many movies. However, there were some great ones that summer, like Raiders of the Lost Ark and Fox and the Hound! See what else came out when Cinematical continues to examine their favorite summers.

- I'm really looking forward to the new Judd Apatow movie, Funny People. You can check out the new red-band trailer here, plus a bonus Adam Sandler prank call circa 1991.
For sheer dynamics, the team was not working together. Casey, who was promoted and thus became the colonel of the title, was put in the tough position of having to apprehend Chuck and Sarah. Since they all know each other so well, there was no advantage on either side, and Chuck's emotional appeal about finding his father seemed to have little effect on Casey.
Anyway, this was the Happy Valentine's Day show, which is why last week's pre-empted episode was re-slotted so this one could land in closer proximity to the holiday. It made sense, then, for there to be some good Chuck and Sarah flirting. Not flirting with each other, just flirting with the idea of them flirting with a real relationship. It looked good there for a while. More after the jump.
I'm now officially worried about Chuck Bartowski. It wasn't the injection of poison to create the antidote to the chemical agent in the hotel conference room that frightened me this week, or the previous episodes when he faced nefarious gunmen with evil intent. The fear is emotional. The return of Jill Roberts should be signaling DefCon 4.
This was one of my favorite Chuck episodes thus far this season. It's the way all the parts fell together. There was great balance between the character development and the action, as well as the funny stuff and the serious scenes. Also, I can't help but notice that Chuck is getting a lot better at handling his CIA chores.
But I'm still worried. More about that after the jump.
Jack is Henry's brother, although I don't see a big resemblance between Corbin Bernsen and Steven Weber. However, if the character is more like Shawn, that will give Weber a chance to play it wild and wacky. Maybe he'll be like his Brian Hackett incarnation on Wings.
According the TV Guide, this Psych episode sounds sort of like a Raiders of the Lost Ark/National Treasure adventure. Uncle Jack comes to town in search of a treasure. He has a map to a hidden Spanish cache of goodies and enlists Shawn and Gus in his search. Now you just know that James Roday will be pulling out a bullwhip and Fedora.
Weber, by the way, is expected back on Brothers and Sisters next season as Sarah's part-time lover. When the show wrapped, their romance was still humming.
Here are the weekly cable ratings, by number of viewers.
OK, I know that everyone is really excited about Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, but I'm still surprised that a repeat of an almost 30 year-old movie grabbed the number one slot in the cable ratings this week. Not only that, but the sequel, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, got the number six slot. Hasn't everyone seen these movies a gazillion times already?

This rumor has been around for months and months, that the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles series would be released on DVD at the same time that the fourth Indiana Jones movie would be in theaters. Now it looks like the show will indeed be released on DVD, and that news comes from George Lucas.
IGN spoke to Lucas at the Museum of Television and Radio, during the Paley Television Festival. Lucas says the episodes will be remastered and re-edited from their videotape versions, and also said that one of the reasons why the DVDs were delayed (besides his legendary obsession with perfection) is the fact that Paramount never really thought the show would be a big seller on DVD. The series starred Sean Patrick Flanery and ran on ABC for 44 episodes in the early 90s.
The new Indiana Jones movie will be released on May 22, 2008, almost 20 years after the last one. Harrison Ford will be 87 years old.
