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.

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

ZantiMisfit: 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.


Wha? The Obi Wan Nightclub was fantastic. Getting to Pankot sucked, but after the grossout dinner things pick right up.

Oh, look, it's the Internet echo chamber turning something pretty good into something everyone seethes with constant anger over.

"The movie was pretty good"
"Yeah, the movie was pretty good, but I thought that fridge scene was pretty far out."
"The fridge scene and the bit with the CGI aliens. What was up with the CGI aliens?"
"Yeah, that was pretty bad."
"Yeah, this movie was pretty bad."
"Pretty bad? It was horrible."
"Horrible? It was a travesty. I despise it beyond all rational thought."
"George Lucas is pure evil. We should hate the creator of Star Wars forever because of this."
"Hate him? We should put his head on a pike for future generations as a sacrifice and a warning!"
"George Lucas ruined my entire life! I can never love again!"
"Sarah Palin saw Indiana Jones 4 while pregnant and her baby came out with Down's Syndrome!"
"George Lucas sold his soul to the Devil!"
"George Lucas IS the Devil!"
"I retroactively hate everything George Lucas ever did, right back to American Graffiti!"
"I liked Star Wars..."
"BURN THE HERETIC!"

It is literally impossible to hate this movie enough for some people. Everyone I know loved that movie for about three days after they saw it. Then they started playing "I'm more hep than you" on the Internet and now I can't get anyone to admit to spending money on it.

Cerebral Knievel: PlasticMoby: For the record, i couldn't give two fuzzy shiatlogs about how much any of you disliked the last movie. I liked it.Hokey,far fetched,impossible,whatever. I don't care. It was still Indiana Jones and it was fun. I really hope they make another.

*internet fist bump* see my previous post that every one ignored.


It's a much better movie than it is given credit for. It's not as good as Raiders, but Raiders is an absolutely fantastic film - if you expect your movies to be as good as Raiders, you're going to be disappointed most of the time.

Sure, it had some flaws. But I enjoyed it.

It wasn't a great movie, but how can people get so hung up on the fridge when:

In Raiders Indy gets to the island by riding on the outside of the submarine.
All kinds of supernatural crap happens in the finale of Raiders.
The guy whose heart gets ripped out and bursts into fire in Doom.
Indy under a voodoo spell in Doom.
The mine car chase in Doom.
Surviving the bridge in Doom.
Flying the plane without a tail wing in Crusade.
Indy healing his dad's gunshot wound with water from a cup in Crusade.

Come mon folks, it's FICTION.

I think that the idea of putting Indy in a 1950s B science fiction movie with Red Scare elements was pretty clever, but it suffered from being too convoluted and like Temple of Doom, as well as lacking a good artifact that Indy was hunting for to help push the narrative forward (also a problem with Doom).

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.

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.)

Rent Party: 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.


This.

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.

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.

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.

Elzar: 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


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?

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.
