    Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull 4K Blu-ray Review
    Easily the outlier in an otherwise near-perfect franchise, the fourth Indy outing proved - at least 13 years ago - that Ford could still pull it off, but otherwise nuked the fridge with wild CG abandon, at least looking good in 4K with Dolby Vision and Atmos.
