Cerebral Knievel: GOOD GOD! its farking Indiana Jones for farks sake! what the hell were you expecting from it!?! it's bombastic blockbuster action movie bullshiat! it is not meant to be taken critically! this is NOT farking Citizen Cane here! you are not expected to, nor required to think about it!


This is a horrible argument. There's no such thing as bad or good blockbuster action movies? Don't be stupid.

Cerebral Knievel: Omis: Cerebral Knievel: 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.

Yes folks it's that guy. Oh no! It's not the movie thats bad. You are just jaded. Notice that the people who don't like the movie talk about why they don't like it, and the people that do like the movie never talk about why they liked it. They just use their psychiatry degree to analyze the people that hate the movie.

Here's how it really works. You like horribly bad movies. You are offended when people don't share your love of trashy movies. It's ok. You are not alone. There are plenty of people that love crappy movies. Just look at how much money the Transformers movies bring in.

The rest of us are disappointed that the series started out as a classic and then slowly degraded to into a mess.

yes folks! its that guy! the one who really loved a movie as a kid, has waited all their life for a sequel when the time for that has gone well past the time for it to be relevant to do so, And when the producers finnaly DO decide that its time to cash in.. I meen revisit the franchise they get all excited, and when the producers follow the same formula as they did in the past, they get all pissed off because they can't find the same wide eyed wonderment in it anymore!

yes.. I do love trashy movies, my collection of direct to drive in theater classics is second to none.

I am not offended in the slightest about people not liking that movie, or any other movie for that matter.. I am, however a little cheesed off about people bickering over and over analyzing what is a movie designed to be a summer time block buster family orientated film with built in merchandising opportunities.

GOOD GOD! its farking Indiana Jones for farks sake! what the hell were you expecting from it!?! it's bombastic blockbuster action movie bullshiat! it is not meant to be taken critically! this is NOT farking Citizen Cane here! you are not expected to, nor required to think about it!

Oh, and while I was a big transformers junkie as a kid, I didn't care for the movies at all... couldn't hear shiat, couldn't follow what was happening.. explosions and stuff just for the sake of it. and far too many cringe worthy moments...

But here is the main point.. in about 20 years? there is going to be a WHOLE generation of assholes who were 8 years old when the first one came out pimping up the merits of THOSE films and biatching about HOW DARE they rape my childhood with this... this.. TRIPE!


its okay.. I'm sure your comeback will be a dissertation on my grammar and sentence structure from here on out..

have fun.


Perhaps if you weren't so jaded you would have loved the transformers too. Because the quality of the stories in the movies were pretty on par with the old cartoons. By your own logic you should adore the movies.

The only difference is Raiders was an adult movie that kids could enjoy. Crystal skull was a kids movie. I can still watch raiders. The other ones not so much. Temple and crusade have their moments. But crystal skull is unwatchable. And the worst thing its boring.

You are right. it is indeed, a horrible argument.

Omis: *wall of text*

I really hate having to explain myself, but I guess I asked for it didn't I?


*sigh*I 'll take your assertion that Raiders was a all growned up film, and I'll counter that it was a PG movie when it was released.. it was meant for general audiences, it was meant for you to be able to take your whole family too go see.

good wholesome family entertainment..

31 years later?

well..

well.. look three years after the release of raiders.. Gremlins came out, Red Dawn came out.. they had to make up a new rating classification for those movies.. Violent, gruesome, graphic.. but hey! no dirty words!

We expected the kids during that time to be of a thicker skin and to CHEER when the Nazis got melted or ground up in a spinning airplane prop! they're farking NAZI'S they are the bad guy and DESERVED IT!

Teaches the kids a lesson... don't be a Nazi, otherwise you might get god melted or chopped up in a airplane propeller.. check that shiat off the list.

cystal skull followed the same outlandish philosphy of all the other movies, as far as I'm concerned. that's why I don't mind it.. I never said it was a GOOD, or GREAT movie.. I just didn't dismiss it. I felt, PERSONALY that is flowed decently with the Indianna jones Mythos as a charcter.

as for the transformers movies? I just simply couldn't follow a damn thing about any of them to make any connection to the mythos period.. I'm sure that they are absolutely LOVELY as bombastic summer time blockbuster fare. And that is why I made my prediction that thirty years from now that there will be a whole new generation of geeks pissed off about the reboot of them.

honestly.. I couldn't understand a damn thing that was going on in the transformer movie... the conversations that were going on were like: OPTIMUS! WHATS GOING ON!?! mumblemumblemuble ENERGON CUBES! mumblemumblemumbleMEGATRON!mumblemumble *GIANT EXPLOSION!* to me.

Oh, do not get me wrong... I liked the giant explosions, and all the special FX and junk... but there simply wasn't any kind of story.. that I could discern at least, in the movie to hold my interest..

Hackneyed as it was, I could at least follow what was going on in the Crystal skull.

See the problem I have with your theory is you believe we will love all the movies we will still love the movies we loved as kids. I am saying that isn't the case. I loved The Last Crusade as a kid. But as an adult, most of that movie doesn't hold up anymore. Same with Superman. I adored that movie as a kid. I wanted to be Superman. But now I can only really watch the movie up until he puts on the cape and costume. After that the movie becomes painfully bad. Probably because when he becomes Superman, the movie becomes campy and silly. The same thing will happen in to the majority kids who like the idiotic Transformers movie.

The problem with Lucas he used to make movies HE wanted to see. Now he just makes movies that kids want to see.

Yep. I was the world's biggest Ninja Turtle fan as a kid, but I have no trouble admitting it was terrible now. If a new Ninja Turtle movie comes out I'd have zero desire to see it. Like Transformers, you realize there was never any effort put in to it to be more than just some stupid show for kids who didn't know better. On the other hand look at Who Framed Roger Rabbit, it was fun to watch as a kid, and it's fun to watch as an adult.

Isn't there a scene in Crystal Skull where they drive off a cliff and land in a big tree branch, then fall and land in another one, and then another? It was like that life raft thing x3, and that wasn't even that cringe-worthy compared to the rest of the movie.
Sounds familiar, but I've honestly forgotten/blocked out most of the film.

I wasn't trying to say KotCS was good. It wasn't even on the same planet as "good". It's just one of the originals was a bit of a stinker as well.

Sounds more like the end of the T-Rex attack in Jurassic Park.
