'Time, the subtle thief of youth. " It's a line from the poet John Milton, but not the line that's cited by a crazy old professor in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. That bit o' Milton is about death - "the palace of eternity. " Nineteen years have passed since the wisecracking, whip-snapping archaeologist adventurer Dr. Henry "Indiana" Jones last dashed around the globe - and cashed big bucks at the box office. Indy's gait was quicker then, his stance straighter, and his delivery . . . well, his delivery was about the same.

"House II: the Second Story," a thriller starring Arye Gross, Jonathan Stark and Royal Dano. Written and directed by Sean S. Cunningham. Running time: 86 minutes. A New World release. At area theaters. If ever, for some reason, you find yourself describing to someone the plot of "House II: the Second Story," you will say things like, "Then the prehistoric baby bird that's holding the crystal skull in its beak gets put into the kitchen cabinet. " That's the kind of movie "House II" is. It's as if Ethan Wiley, who wrote the screenplay and directed, sat down at his word processor and typed in everything that came into his head, no matter how silly, disconnected or unscary.

Harrison Ford may be 65, but not to worry - it's clear in "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" that his stuntman is only 25. In the first few minutes alone, Indy dodges a thousand bullets, swings from the rafters via his famous rawhide whip, and outruns the shock wave from an atom bomb. The year is 1957, the bomb is a military test in New Mexico, and none of this is by happenstance. Steven Spielberg has come to praise Indiana Jones and also to bury him, and so he positions Indy's swan song in the mid-1950s - the moment when the United States made the pivot from a nation that built its mythology around a heroic past to a nation whose atomic age imagination was fixed on the future.

NEW YORK - Break? What break? It's been 31/2 years since Steven Spielberg's Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull . Three-and-a-half years without a movie from one of Hollywood's most prolific, powerful, kudo-ed directors. What has Steven been up to all this time? Making movies, it turns out. "I didn't stop," he says. "In fact, I was doing Tintin while the Indy movie was still in production. . . . We were preparing the scripts. "I had just never made an animated film before and that takes a lot longer than making a live-action picture.

Uh-oh, the projectionist has put the wrong film on. Those two boys running playfully over the Afghan hills - it's The Kite Runner , right? Wrong. It's the opening scene of Eagle Eye , and those kids are toast. Analysts at the Pentagon back in Washington are tracking a suspected terrorist via satellite - a bin Laden-type who's emerged from his cave to (1) check out a weapons cache, or (2) attend a funeral. The guys at Command Center aren't sure which, but the president goes ahead and orders the smart bombs anyway.
