This was on TV the other night and it would of been the 3rd time watching it...but I finally realized that it was not a very good movie.

He said in court papers he wants to "stop the looting and unauthorized use of [the country's] cultural material our childhood memories."

But, it's definitely up there amongst the top four Indiana Jones movies.

Awe also demands the family of F.A. Mitchell-Hedges and his daughter Anna, who the suit alleges stole the artifact from the temple of Lubaantun in 1924, return it to Belize.

Except that even Indy dismisses the skull as a fake in the movie.
Nice try, Belize.

Excluding the porn parodies, correct?

/KOTCS had a good 30-45 minutes of great Indiana Jones filmwork in it, unfortunately it was mashed in with 1.5 hours of 'Relic Hunter'.

No, it may not be...but ya gotta ask yourself, all things considered, which would you rather watch on a loop, once you finally end up in hell: Crystal Skull or Twilight?

I just watched it the other night, too, and although I agree with you, I also discovered it's not AS bad I remembered.

All the things that everyone complains about, all true (the fridge, the monkeys, the sword fight on the trucks in the jungle, the driving off 3 waterfalls) all bad.

But it DID have some moments

(also, my question is not "why does Indiana Jones have a photo of his father on his desk" but "why does Indiana Jones have a photo of his father on his desk that is clearly a promo shot from the LAST Indiana Jones movie???"

So, we have some tool in Belize who believes that a crystal carving of a human skull may have been stolen 80 years ago from a location in his country, and thus believes that the plastic model of an alien skull seen in a movie somehow violates the implied trademark his country allegedly holds on the crystal carving of a human skull?

Wow, Jaime Awe. In your rush to become the "Zahi Hawass of Belize", you're now just as stupid as the folks that believe that the crystal carving of a human skull was created by aliens. Zahi Hawass actually went after authenticated Egyptian antiquities, not farcical copies manufactured by silly Brits hoping to cash in on the occult.

What's worse is that, as a result of forcing the issue, you'll guarantee that your "cultural artifact" is authenticated as European in origin, not stolen from a Mayan city as you allege, and thus invalidate any alleged trademark claim precisely because not a single crystal skull has ever been found in or stolen from Belize.

In short, your greed and vanity will be the undoing of your culture's claims. Heckuva job.

Didn't even know there was porn parodies - (I lead a sheltered life) - but yeah, excluding the porn parodies.

Considering that all the crystal skull are recent frauds, I guess they may still be recent enough for such IP claims.

I liked Crystal Skull. It might not be as good as the three previous movies, but it doesn't deserve the childish hatred it gets.

In that situation, at least Twilight has some potential fap material.

/never saw Twilight...don't plan too; unless I'm in hell.

If you pretend the other 3 then it is better than 95% of all new releases. The first one was once in a lifetime awesome (like Star Wars) and apparently unless the sequels are as good they are deemed awful.

That was probably even more surprising to me than the lawsuit.

Of all the other movies, the fridge nuke ride was the stupidest. Let's just say it was able to protect him from the radiation. The sheer force of it being blown into the air and crashing back down would've killed him. Granted I suspended my disbelief with a mystical ark, grail, and sacred stones because, well, they are magical. Nothing magical about a fridge or a nuke.
