Members of Russia's Communist Party are calling for a nationwide boycott of the new Indiana Jones movie, saying it aims to undermine communist ideology and distort history.
Indiana Jones

Harrison Ford returns as Indiana Jones in "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull."

"Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" stars Harrison Ford as an archaeologist in 1957 competing with an evil KGB agent, played by Cate Blanchett, to find a skull endowed with mystic powers.

It hit Russian screens Thursday.

Communist Party members in St. Petersburg said on a web site this week that the Soviet Union in 1957 "did not send terrorists to the States," but launched a satellite, "which evoked the admiration of the whole world."

Moscow Communist lawmaker Andrei Andreyev said Saturday "it is very disturbing if talented directors want to provoke a new Cold War."

@Fatal Freedoms,
Hmmm communist supporters must not realize what entertainment is. I have not seen the new Indiana Jones but I highly doubt that Spielberg or Lucas where looking to re start the cold war... Putin is doing a damn fine job of that himself.

@Drakej,
why would they want to restart the cold war? So they can be humiliated twice? :dunno:

@Fatal Freedoms,
Do I detect a hint of national pride, perhaps, FF?
