    Went to the Drive-In movie theater last night...

    First time in about 25 years that I had gone to a drive-in. Went and saw a double feature of Indiana Jones and Narnia: Prince Caspian. Weather was nice and cool, had some friends there with us, and had a really good time.

    I think we'll hit the drive-in some more this summer now that I've re-discovered the fun in going

    Sounds like fun

    What was your take on the Indiana Jones flick?

    It was good, but in some aspects a little disappointing; only insomuch as it was so hyped that no matter what there was no way it was going to live up to the hype. I like how they took actual real archaeological findings and wove it into the story, such as the skull, and the nazca lines in Peru, but the story itself got a little far fetched. And I understand that, because it was stated that George Lucas wanted to go with a 50's B-movie feel to this episode of Indiana Jones.

    As far as movies go, it was a good, fun movie to watch, and I'd probably rate it above Temple of Doom, but not above Raiders or Last Crusade.

    Narnia was good, but to be honest, I dozed for about 15 minutes towards the middle. Not because of the movie, but because I had been up since 5 am and it was around 1 am and I was pretty worn out from work. Overall, I think Narnia was really good, maybe a little better than the first Narnia.

    Yeah, if you liked the first, you'll definitely like the second. Especially the mice

    depending on her age, you could send her to the concession stand and get a quicky in. although i am sure all of yours are quickies.

    I saw the Indy movie last Thursday. I liked it. Had not been to the movies in a while. Note...Does the sound of a machine gun have to be that loud???Compared to the rest of the movie soundtrack?, almost annoying.

    Don't get me wrong, sound is half the movie. But if your going to crank up those ten seconds of a 2 hour movie, why not crank up the music soundtrack as well???

    Anyway, good movie.

    Drive-ins are awesome, good to hear the 2nd Narnia is a little better, the first one felt slow and in some parts rushed.

    I was thinking of going to a drive in with my lady friend. Now, I've never been to one so I need some advice to get the best action opportunities.

    If we both sat in the front seat, it'd be hard to reach over but it'll be easier to watch the movie. If we both sat in the back seat, it'll be easy to reach over but can't really see the screen from there.

    What do you folks recommend? Ohh.. now I see why people get a convertable....

    We just took some lawn chairs, popped open the hatchback (we backed in) and watched the movie that way. We even brought a little wicker table to set our drinks and bug candle on
