There are so many familiar faces returning to the big screen -- Indiana Jones and Marion Ravenwood, Mulder and Scully, Batman, the crew of the USS Enterprise, John Connor, the Hulk. They're following hard on the heels of Rambo, Rocky and John McClane. Naturally, Indy and two FBI Agents seem to be causing the greatest stir of late. The continuous refrain on the Internet is "Oh wow, this summer is the greatest ever – a fourth Indy and a second X-Files movie, it is everything I could have wanted!"

It is with great shame that I confess that I don't feel the same way. I feel like a character in Invasion of the Body Snatchers because everyone but me is so excited – though undoubtedly most of you think I'm the pod person – and I wish I could join in. I can't really understand why I'm not more excited. Indiana Jones made me the girl I am (a subject for another Geek Beat) and my bookshelf held my X-Files guides until only recently.
