I like this if only because it gives them a chance to redeem themselves.

Well, if Lucas stays true to form, when he revisits a franchise each film is slightly better than the last.  Of course after Indy 4 I'd be entertained by monkeys throwing poop at the screen.

I would be more entertained if they were throwing poop at Shia LaBeouf.

Let me guess. This time Indy and son are fighting Bigfoot in the forests of British Columbia. In one riveting sequence, Shia surfs down the back of the Loch Ness Monster. Indy is dropped into a volcano but escapes death thanks to quickly dipping his feet in spring water and sprinting 1/4 mile over molten lava to safety.

F*** you George Lucas and the childhood rape machine you call your modern film career. And f*** you too Steven Spielberg you alien-obsessed douchebag.

I read on EW a suggestion that they reboot like James Bond or Batman or Star Trek. I would like that very much. Like pre-TOD (as it was before Raiders), or perhaps Indy's early adventures with Abner Ravenwood and Marion...

This could be good.

I think they should have 50 Cent join forces with Indy to rampage through Russia looking for their bling skulls. 

Really though, as much as Star Wars Eps 2 and 3 were an improvement over Ep 1, there really wasn't much room to get worse, and they didn't get a whole lot better.  After the nuke the fridge scene, I've become convinced that Lucas has gone round the bend, and I'm going to actively start ignoring everything he does lest all my fond childhood memories be tarnished. 

If they did a reboot, gave it to a different director who gets the spirit of the material, then I might be in.  Still, there's two problems.  First, Indiana Jones will always be tied to Harrison Ford, and anyone else they get to fill that role will compare poorly.  Second, Lucas would never in a billion years give up creative control, as he's apparently become convinced that he has writing and directing ability, which he never, ever had, even in the good old days.

Is Star Wars Episode 2 generally considered better than Episode 1? I thought Episode 2 was easily the worst of the bunch. At least Episode 1 had Darth Maul in it.

i love Indy...Indy 4 was..hmm,so-so(and now whenever i think about it,i have THAT episode of South Park in my mind,with the Deliverance theme)

i read a few months ago that Harrison Ford actually wanted to do another Indy film in 1996,but spielberg was going through a different phase with his movies at the time,so put it all on hold

so,this still gonna be the 50s,or will the bad guys be tripped out Beatle wanna be hippies?

I kinda agree.

The 'refrig scene in Indy IV didn't bother me that much.  I thought it was a funny, tongue-in-cheek scene that set the mood for the general world.  It was the last half of the movie - the Shia suckage, the annoying dialog, the dull "action" scenes and the sucks-almost-as-much-as-Battlefield-Earth final alien scene that made me throw up in my popcorn bucket.  George Lucas is the king of suckage over the last 10 years or so.  Seriously, has anyone produced movies this bad with franchises and source material that good?

Spielberg gets a bit of a pass from me.  I think the aliens crap was really Lucas' doing.  Plus, I can't hammer on Spielberg too much - even movies that I didn't like of his the 1st go-around ("AI") I've come to enjoy.  Plus, Flags of our Fathers and Letters from Iwo Jima were excellent.  Finally, I can't hate on the guy who helped produce "Pinky and the Brain".

Flags and Letters were directed by Clint Eastwood.

Also, most of the second half (and IMO worst part) of Kingdom were Spielberg and Koepp's handiwork.  The first half stuff was more from Lucas.

I disagree completely.  icon_biggrin

Don't get me wrong, the reboots for Bond, Batman, and Star Trek are some of my favorite movies from the last couple of years, with Casino Royal and the two Batman movies being near the top of my all-time favorite list. But I just don't think Indiana Jones should have a more "serious" approach to it. The entire point of the movie is the goofy, over the top action. It's just a hard feat to pull off, because if you aren't careful you end up with a scene like the nuclear fridge.

After seeing the fourth movie, I'm ready for the franchise to go away. The original three movies stand the test of time for me anyway, and don't need to have anything added to them to make them better.

Spielberg was the producer on those, I think.

I highly, highly recommend JW Rinzler's The Complete Making of Indiana Jones for any fan of the series even if you don't like Crystal Skull.  All kinds of great background details in there.

As far as Kingdom goes, the stuff in the first half of the movie has been pretty consistent in almost all of the drafts as far back as the early '90s and was stuff that Lucas really liked and wanted in there.  The second half stuff is more recent and seems predominantly from Koepp (who is Spielberg's pet screenwriter) and largely speaks to issues that Spielberg cares about (ie daddy issues).  My other big issue in the second half is the way Marion is written.  I thought the idea of bringing her back was great but the dialogue just didn't sound like her (again I'm going to blame Koepp for that). 

The alien stuff is all Lucas though and Spielberg had to be coerced into that aspect of the film. 

As for nuking the fridge- I like the idea in concept.  It feels very "Saturday Matinee".  I don't care as much for it's execution though- it would have worked far better for me if they didn't have it flying miles through the air.

For Indy 5, they should put George Lucas in a lead lined fridge powered by nuclear reactors and blast him to a galaxy far far away!   retard

Actually, I was just so happy to see Harrison Ford in something fun (however stupid it might've been at times) and Karen Allen back as Marion, that I saw it 3 times and quite enjoyed it. It didn't "age well" in my memory though and I declined to get it on DVD.

What I wish is that Lawrence Kasdan (who wrote Raiders' screenplay and wrote most of The Empire Strikes Back) would get back into screenwriting and do an Indy script.

Frankly, I wouldn't hold my breath on all this. After The Fugitive's success in 1993 (!) there was breathless speculation about an Indy 4 script by The Fugitive's co-screenwriter (J.E.B. Stuart), which went nowhere. The web wasn't all over in 1993 though so there wasn't nearly as much hyperactive overspeculation in that day. I mean, Frank Marshall may "want" an Indy 5 script, but getting the principals to actually agree on one is another thing.

I'd still love someday to know what Frank Darabont's (Shawshank Redemption) Indy 4 script, which Spielberg liked but apparently didn't have enough "mystical elements" for Lucas's tastets, was like.

Agreed- it's so hard to get them to all agree and their schedules to align that I think anyone breathlessly proclaming Indy 5 as a done deal before a script is made is jumping the gun.

I went into Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of Crap with an open mind, I did my best to suspend disbelief, and I even don't mind Shia Lebouf as I enjoyed him in Transformers.  Unfortunately I made the mistake of watching all three prior Indy films in preparation.  And I still came away from it feeling like George Lucas did everything in his power to intentionally ruin a franchise.  He went from stories about lost religious artifacts to alien skulls.  Action sequences in Indy films are usually a bit over-the-top, but he went so overboard in Kingdom that it surpassed ridiculous and even camp and went straight into garbage. 

The Kingdom of Crap was atrocious.  And not even because it was an Indy film, but because it was just bad in general.  Factor in that it was supposed to be an Indy film and it goes from being bad to offensive to all childhood Indy fans.  Lucas has proven that while he may have been successful with early films in both series, he became a product of his own imagination and self-worth and destroyed all we've grown to hold dear.  He has become a liability to both franchises.  He must be stopped.  Spielberg can suck it as well for putting aliens in a fucking Indy film. 

As much as it pains me to say it, I'll still be "in" on a new Indy film because I'm so desperate for redemption.  Stallone was able to redeem himself with Rocky Balboa, but he had to come to his senses in order to do so.  I fear that Lucas is too far gone for that to happen, but I'll still give it a try.  I'll hate myself for it in the morning, but I just can't help myself.   icon_redface

I've seen many movies, and typically I either enjoy a film or I do not.  I not only did not enjoy The Kingdom of Crap, but it left me feeling angry at its close.  You really have to fuck up Indiana Jones to actually piss people off, almost as if it was intentional.  Because it takes real effort to screw something up that badly.

The only thing that even came *close* (though it still doesn't equal it) is what I felt after walking out of The Phantom Menace. I had stood in line for 3 hours to attend the midnight showing. I had partied with other Star Wars geeks in the parking lot. We were on the news. There was an excitement and energy I've never experienced before when we were finally all in the theater and the Star Wars logo and theme music came on and everybody started cheering. It was pure magic. Then for the next two hours I sat through Jar-Jar, a boring-ass plot about fucking shipping blockades, fart jokes, the most annoying kid in the universe, and the cherry on top - midichlorians. Walking out there was a palpable sense of disappointment hanging in the air like a fog. Oh, everybody walked out talking about how awesome it was, but there was a flat dead tone in their voice, as if they really didn't believe what they were saying. They were just trying to retain some little scrap of the magic that had existed before we walked in the theater.

But even THAT was closer to disappointment and sadness rather than anger. I felt partly responsible for The Phantom Menace - as if maybe I had just gotten my hopes up too high. That maybe I was forgetting that Star Wars was for kids, and as an adult I couldn't possibly fully appreciate it on that level again.

Indy 4 was all of the above, plus pure unbridled anger. Anger for being fooled again. For watching George Lucas not only shit on my childhood for Phantom Menace, but two more Star Wars films and NOW another franchise. It was like I was paying money to watch a madman burn my photo albums and destroy my happy memories. I'm still angry about Indy 4. I've never felt that way about any other movie. Not even poor sequels or movies I just didn't like. I usually just forget and move on. But Indy 4 is like the straw that broke the camel's back. It encompasses everything I hate about Hollywood, and its total destruction of everything I loved about movies probably won't be equaled until Ghostbusters 3.

Indy 4 was the same shit as the first 3 and they all were silly fun movies.

Also, Indy IS Harrison Ford.  Without him, don't even film another movie.

If anything, Lucas and Spielberg GAVE me my childhood. I'd never accuse them of ruining it. They've just grown in different ways as film makers and that's fine. That's what happens. I didn't care for the first two of the new "Star Wars" films but resoundingly love the third one. I hate with every fiber of my being the fourth "Indy" film and have no interest in another one. Yet I don't hesitate to throw on "Raiders of the Lost Ark" any time I need or just want to see a great film.

But there gets to be a point where action actors from the 80's need to give it up and Ford passed that point with "Devil's Own."

i do agree with you somewhat about them being silly fun...but the past 3,also had great scripts,all i have to say is Aliens...in a Indy film???...the indy films aren't sci-fi,they are religious relic adventure films..at least stick to the plot of what Indy is all about

flesh eating ants had already been done in The Mummy with the scarabs and the less said about Shia being Tarzan swinging through the jungle on Vines the better

okay,Denholm Elliot was dead,and Sean Connery had retired from acting ...but not sure why they didn't get some Sallad(John Rhys Davis)back..if they wanted to put comedy in the film,he could of been the laughs

one of the good things about indy 4 was that they brought Karen Allen back,she had always been my favourite Indy girl,and she was still yummy


i don't think i was disappointed with the film as much as most other people,but with Ray Winstone,Cate Blanchett and even the great John Hurt as supporting,the film should of been much better IMO

Uhh, thats a big fat no it wasn't anywhere the same...at all. Not in the slightest most remote way possible.

Well, let's take a look at film one.  Let's see...we open the ark and these spirits or whatever come shooting out and the way to protect yourself is not to look at them?  Really?  They're supernatural and yet can't act if you can't look at them?  Is this like Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and the towel and the beast?  Seems awfully like surviving a nuclear explosion in a fridge to me.

how many times do we have to rehash this? There's suspension of disbelief and there's suspension of idiocy...

The difference is on based on the reality the movies takes place in. The Ark is based on religion/superstition, the nuclear blast and the fridge is based in reality and on science... there's a huge difference.

And dont get me started on the monkeys...why oh why did the monkeys suddenly help them? Its just too far fetched and makes no sense whatsoever.
