I am not a 5th movie.

You're not catching me with that trick. They'd have to make a fourth movie first.

I can suspend my disbelief about the nuclear fridge blast, but the aliens and mothership CGI as well as the miles long swinging through the jungle and catching up with vehicles traveling at a pretty fast speed? Not so much.

Its like they figured an ok start to the movie, but let a group of 2n graders finish it...

/ also LeDouche was an epic fail of casting

I enjoyed the movie, not the best Indy flick, but better than Temple of Doom. I had no problem with it being aliens because the film was set in the 50's. Aliens was the rage in fiction back then.

Shea LaBueff did fine-but the monkey swinging was bad.
 
2012-07-27 11:58:10 AM
I remember 3 things about that movie.. none good.

-The fridge issue (who thought that was acceptable?)
-The scene where about 40 bad guys couldn't stop Indy while he was running around on some boxes.. when the whole scene started with Indy and the bad guys about 10 feet apart (how I remember it anyhow)
-The vine swinging scene.. which I am all for over the top nonsense.. but wow.. that was terrible.
 
2012-07-27 01:15:23 PM
The giant ants and how they pulled the bad guys down into their hills was silly.

When was Indiana Jones ever about not suspending your belief? I seem to remember this kind of stuff through all of the movies, raft scene anyone?
 
2012-07-27 01:57:53 PM
Indiana Jones belongs in a museum.
 
2012-07-27 02:02:06 PM
My biggest problem with the 4th one was that it didn't feel right. They did a ton of CGI (after repeatedly saying they only would when "necessary". So apparently opening the movie on a CGI prairie dog was necessary). And there was no location shooting. Didn't all of the other Indiana Jones movies actually travel to the locations depicted? From what I understand, Hawaii now stands in for every place else in the world, according to Spielberg.

The other stuff, fridge, aliens, is no different than magic cups that give you life, or a box of face melting destruction, or jumping out of a plane in a raft. Shia didn't even seem like he was in the movie enough to detract from it, except for the vine swinging.
 
2012-07-27 02:03:01 PM
5th movie? There were only two: Raiders, and Last Crusade. Stop selling crazy.

This is what happens when there is no one to slap George Lucas and tell him to "knock it off with that crap."
 
2012-07-27 02:18:26 PM
We can buy:

* Ancient ark releasing the power of God and melting Nazi face all over the desert.
* Voodoo dolls crippling Indian from saving TEH CHILDRENZ!!!!
* Thousand year old Knight taking care of the Holy Grail advising us to "choose wisely."


But hiding from a nuclear test inside a lead lined fridge, Wile-E-Cyote style? That's just dumb, man. Totally unbelievable.

It was a funny bit. The rest of the movie stank enough for everyone.

They jumped out of a plane in a life raft and sledded down a mountain into a river and over a waterfall in the Temple of Doom, so I'm OK with far reaching action sequences (which may or may not exist in our dimension, along with rumored occurrences of Kingdom of Crystal Skull, Rocky 5, Godfather 3, Transformers 2, Phantom Menace, Jaws 3D, what else am I missing?)

I can only hope young Shia LaBoeuf will manage to find more work and avoid starvation.
 
2012-07-27 02:29:59 PM
Whenever a discussion about Indiana Jones comes up, I hear a lot of debate about whether Temple of Doom was a good movie or not.
The truth? It's both.
Watch the first hour, then hit stop. You'll swear it's one of the worst movies ever.
Wait 24 hours, then watch the rest, and hey, it's an Indiana Jones movie again!

It's actually startliing how much a difference in quality exists between the first and second half of Temple of Doom.

Rent Party: * Thousand year old Knight taking care of the Holy Grail advising us to "choose wisely."


Well the Holy Grail IS supposed to grant eternal life.

If anything, the drinking of that by him and his dad should effectively have stopped any sequel since they both should, theoretically, live eternally now.

I believe they went to Yale for the university scenes. They had background actor recruitment there sometime in Summer 2007.

Nope. Jesus drew the Great SealTM in the Grail's resting place, remember. It's the boundary (and the price) of immortality.

"Raiders" is the best one, by far, because it's a fairly "serious" movie. There's some comedy, but it's generally very understated.

The other ones are too goofy for my tastes. They went for comedy after "Raiders", unfortunately.

In all honestly I dont see what the big friggen deal is. Grew up on the first 3 and when fourth skull movie came out, I loved every bit of it. It just made me feel good about myself.
 
2012-07-27 02:50:41 PM
What I liked about Crystal Skull was that it actually treated archaeology as a science for the first time since Raiders.

Another thing I liked about it was how it acknowledged how much Harrison Ford has changed since we last saw him in action. It didn't try to pretend he was still the same man he was 15-20 years ago. After all, "It's not the years...it's the mileage.".

Science and aliens be damned, but all that god stuff was awesome! Totally realistic.

Indy was always about surviving that which, by all rights, he shouldn't, as are the lion's share of all action movies.
 
2012-07-27 02:54:57 PM
I didn't mind the crystal skull, even all the far fetched stunts, yes the vine scene was goofy, I was fine with the aliens, I was fine with the nuke fridge. It was an Indiana Jones movie.

Here is how it works folks... you are not 8 years old anymore.. you were more willing to suspend your disbelief about jumping out of air plane on a raft, melting Nazi's etcetcetcetc. You are trying to look at it with the jaded eyes of a broken adult, hoping to catch a little bit of that lost innocence of childhood. but y'all choose to be critical and jaded when you should've opened up your heart, imagination and sense of awe..

you chose... poorly, and then blamed lucas for it.

Dr.Knockboots: -The fridge issue (who thought that was acceptable?)


I didn't like it, I thought it was stupid. The only way I could make the hurting stop was to think that somehow the only way Indy survived was more the fact that he'd drank from the Holy Grail and had near-immortality, thus his survival was more of Divine Intervention than anything else.

Really flimsy rationalization, but it's the only thing I could come up with.

Wild Wasteland I believe (you get his hat)

Also...In Morrowind

www.imperial-library.info

The letter next to the skeleton reads:

"It's been many days since the collapse. I have had many good and exciting adventures. I fear this is the last. I am still unsure what happened. Was it a trap that caused the collapse? I didn't hear the click of any device. Perhaps it was simply a freak accident, and I was simply in the wrong place at the right time. Regardless, I now lie here, half buried in the collapse, with crushed legs. The pain was unbearable for the first day or so. Or was it? Who knows? You lose track of time in a place like this. Especially in a situation such as this. The pain has all but left though. Getting used to pain is a battle all in itself. My time now runs short. I will die here, in this tomb. No better place for a dead man.

My adventures have taken me all over. I have been places that man never knew existed. I have retrieved artifacts and fine treasures that were thought to be myth. From chalices of origins long lost, to gems with power unthought of by man, to powerful religious artifacts that house more interest to madmen than sane. I shall at least take these fine memories with me to the grave.

I shall miss my father. Like me, he was also a man of adventure. I followed in his footsteps, though I was blessed with far more luck than he. Until now, of course. He shall be on his own now. At least I am spared any more jokes about my childhood pet. And my students...how I treasured teaching them the secrets and alien concepts of all things unknown and mysterious. May they be successful.

I do not go down along [sic] though. With my crippled body, in this heap of earth, I am accompanied by my trusty leather, my steel, and most of all, my token hat. Unable to reach them under the mass, I know they are untouchable and safe. I will not die alone.

Farewell,

Indie"

my first CSB time

The fridge scene actually came form a rejected story board series made for the first Back to the Future Movie. The Nuke blast was how the DeLoran was going to get it power to take MJF back to the 80's. It was rejected for the lightening method.

I had breakfast with the man that did the storyboards. I know you will not believe but I am hesitant to give out his name publicly.

(he also designed the bridge of the USS enterprise D for TNG. and his name is on the the dedication plaque on the bridge wall.)

As long as you're really Rose McGowan's love slave, we'll believe anything you tell us, particularly anything with pictures and described in candid detail.
While the lightning thing was far-fetched, the nuclear blast thing (I'm assuming it would have been at a distant testing site) might have ruined BTTF It seems to have left a stench on Crystal Skull.

Yea, it's Wild Wasteland. I remember when i was first playing (probably about 6 hours in) just wandering around and I saw a fridge in the middle of nowhere. Ran over to it (because hey, it's Fallout and I have to explore every. freaking. thing) and saw a skeleton body and a hat just sitting inside. It was the first WW site I got to see and it made me laugh my ass off. I knew it would be a pretty good game after that.

/Wild Wasteland was the only perk with all good aspects and no bad. Even the weapons were better

If there's a true "jump the shark" moment for Indiana Jones for me, it's him trying to infiltrate a Nazi stronghold by pretending to be a Scottish interior decorator.

the fridge scene = ridiculous, but Indy is a bad ass

Not too distant it was supposed to be the Trinity test blast (I believe) and BTTF takes place in CA. for the record I like the lightening as well. I think the nuke blast was abandoned because of Cold War fears.

Couldn't he have just done that from the start?

Yeah, I know. That would have been very un-Indylike to have done that.

But surely George and Steve could have come up with a ruse for Indy that didn't make him look stupid.
 
2012-07-27 03:38:16 PM
Kingdom of the crystal skull wasn't that bad, not the greatest Indy movie but it was alright. As far as believability, I could go through every damn Indy movie and find shiat that was just as unbelievable in reality, but that's the fun of movies, suspending reality and enjoying some good fantasy for a couple of hours. People need to lay off it.
 
2012-07-27 03:39:24 PM
I'd like them to do a 5th movie focusing on Indy and the OSS, set in the late 30s or early 40s. You could get Indy back to fighting Nazi...but...

They need to cast a new Indy because Ford is too damn old and all the joy in him has died.

It may sound ridiculous, but does anyone else think Greg Kinnear could pull it off?
