Fans of funk-rock super group Red Hot Chili Peppers will have to be patient to wait for the band's new project. That fact occurs after Red Hot announced that they decided to take a year break from any project of the band due to the tiredness they were having after working on their last album "Stadium Arcadium" and tours.

The news was confirmed by the band's lead vocalist Anthony Kiedis in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine. Confirming the news and revealing the reason to take a break, Kiedis said, "We're disbanded for the moment. We actually took a very long time to make the 'Stadium Arcadium' record, because we wrote a lot of songs and then got way too married to them and decided we need it to be a double album. Which was a great experience, but it took forever. It was really a grueling, long haul."

'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' Panned and Hailed

May 21, 2008 07:25:44 GMT

Twenty seven years ago, the whip-cracking Indiana Jones mesmerized people all over the world when he began his adventurous journey in search of the lost arc. The archaeological professor then followed up the success of "Raiders of the Lost Ark" with two other chivalrous ventures in "Temple of Doom" and with "The Last Crusade". Now, nineteen years after his last thrilling adventure, the daring professor is indeed going back to crack his signature whip in the big screen with "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" and he is aiming to score bigger than ever at the box office. Still, though the fourth Indy film is highly anticipated, it doesn't actually get early receptions it hoped for, especially with the mixed feeling given by the movie critics.

Bringing its action star, Harrison Ford, back to reprise his most famous role ever after his golden years have passed, "Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" at first offered much doubt whether or not Ford could do justice to his character. Still, some critics believe that the filmmakers are clever enough to set this film in 1957 which is about 20 years apart from the first three movies and most importantly remains true with Jones' memorable character to please the fans. Todd McCarthy of Variety commented that in the latest film, Jones "comes through just as viewers remember him: crafty, capable, impatient, manly, and red-blooded American". Rafer Guzman of Newsday added, "Its success rides almost entirely on Ford, who brightens the action - always improbable, occasionally ludicrous - with physical humor and rascally charm. He wears the role so naturally that his supporting actors often seem to be faking it." Aside from panning the doubt over Ford's performance, others who support the positive reviews also applauded the spectacular special effect and stunt works on the action adventure tidbit.
