Harrison Ford will be older than Alec Guinness was in episode 4.

Apparently, the report was from Mexican Fox News and isn't accurate. He has not signed to be in the film.

I still don't understand the hate for Cyrstal Skull. The entire thing was Raiders but with Commies instead of Nazis and aliens instead of god. The essential plot was the same, as were the incredibly unrealistic ways in which problems were dealt with.

The moment they lost me was the monkey chase.

I can accept a LOT, but that swung right across the line.

I understand there will be this great sequence where Han evades a blast from the new Death Star by climbing in an old refrigerator.

For me, it was the horrible ending. It directly ripped off the visuals of "The Mummy Returns".

They could do a really nice handoff to the next generation if they do this right.   Luke and Lea running a new training academy for the Jedi, Lea and Solo's oldest son about to graduate and struggling with the discipline of the Jedi and his father's inherent cowboy ways.

Other options:  Jar Jar Bink's head mounted on a wall.   A scene where a teacher is going over the old legends of the Jedi.  She could say something cool like "Back in the day people believed in all kinds of crazy stupid things.   Spontaneous generation of maggots on meat, a finite and bounded universe, midichlorians as the source of the Force...."

But I have a hunch it's going to be a bunch of geriatrics trying to act like a bunch of kids.

So this proves that it will be set a few decades after the original trilogy, which is a new piece of information I suppose.

No.  It will not be amazing.  It will be lame and boring and empty but people will go see it.

I think that disappointment translated into hate. The fact that they made Indy "old".  That fans expectation of what "indy" was supposed to be about.

The biggest one in Lucas hate. The internet deemed it cool to hate him.

It doesn't matter that Spielberg was the one responsible for the action scenes (Fridge/Monkey swinging scene)

It's third for me, Raiders takes first place, Holy Grail second, and Crystal Skull third with Temple of Doom 4th.
 
2013-02-15 03:02:49 PM
I'm expecting him to not even completing the Kessel Run this time.  Or attempting it and having his blinkers on through the entire trip..

This news actually makes me want to see the movie even less.

Did you not hear that George Lucas is not going to be directing it?

2013-02-15 03:24:07 PM
NO. God damnit, the biggest problem the EU and prequels have is their insistence on connections with the original trilogy, no matter how stupid. I don't want to see an old Han Solo or Chewie, I sure as hell don't want to see Han Solo's kids, and I don't want any scenes on Tatooine or Hoth or Dagobah. Make some cool, original movies in that universe, and if there has to be a connection make it a general one like the ongoing battle between the Light side and the Dark side of the force.
 
2013-02-15 03:24:54 PM
Sheesh, I would've hated to hear the FARK comments if the site had been around when Alec Guinness was pegged for Star Wars. You'd think anyone over the age of 60 should be barred from appearing in any movies at all.

All the same jokes trotted out when Indy 4/5 were announced. We get it, he's old. I liked Indy 4 (sorry everyone) and most of the common complaints I hear are about peripheral aspects, not Ford's acting or his age. Things like the fridge, the monkeys, the aliens and such. If Han Solo returns, he won't be presented as if RotJ just happened last week. Han Solo would eventually get old and/or die too, no matter how tightly you grip your 1977 action figures.

I don't know how to explain it, but

1. Indy. Men want to be him, women to be with him. He's everything to everyone. Handsome, intelligent, tough, traveled...He's Han Solo the archeologist....He's Tony Stark.

2. All of the goofy ridiculousness of the movies has this sort of plausibility to it. The fighting, the chase scenes; nothing feels ridiculous. No surviving the blast of a nuclear test by hiding in the fridge. No vine swinging, no army ants. No sword fights, standing between to cars, driving through the jungle, on imaginary tree crushing machines....for no reason.

3. Religious or not, most people are aware of the 10 commandments and have at least heard of the Ark of the Covenant. So whether you believe in a God or not, there is this sort of tangible thing that people understand is valuable...and maybe, just maybe...might have some mystical power.

Conversely, crystal skulls are not that well known to the general population. People have no idea what they are, why they're supposed to be valuable, or the ramifications for finding/having one. And most people who have heard of them...already know they are a hoax.

The Ark of the Covenant already this built in mystique about it, whereas the crystal skulls are the type of thing you find at a crappy roadside carnival in the "hall of mystery"

4. They're old. Indy and Marion are in their 70s. And then they get married. Hooray....?? I guess. I mean would you watch a James Bond starring an aging Sean Connery, saving social security and finally marrying an equally aging Miss Moneypenny)?

5. You never really care about the characters or the story. It's just "stuff" happening on the screen. It's a nostalgia flick, but all wrong. It's an action movie, but the action sequences are stupid and pointless (e.g., the motorcycle chase scene). It's a loves story...that no one cares about. You never get the impression that Indy and Marrion are soulmates, destined to be together...rather Indy's now 70, a father, and he's done giving to all the beautiful underclassman girls...so eh, might as well do the right thing.

The main characters were cool in the original trilogy because they were designed to drive the story.

Han needed to be a 'scoundrel' so that his conversion at the end would have emotional impact.

Luke needed to be an innocent farmboy so that we could identify with him and learn about the world/empire with him.

Leia had to have balls of steel because she was a rebel who wouldn't break under pressure.

Trying to fit a story to the existing characters is the most likely thing that'll make these movies suck.  Write a compelling story first, if there's room to shoehorn in the old characters, great.

Movie hand-offs never work.  Don't show Harrison Ford handing the reigns to Sam Worthington or whoever, because the audience will just want to see Ford still.  It would be hard enough just casting people not associated with the OT, don't handicap it with a hand off.

Prime Spock only kinda worked because he handed off at the end of the movie.

And the same old asshole has to talk about his love of Indy IV and the prequels in every Star Wars related thread.  Get a new hobby.  Liking the prequels is like being a holocaust denier.  We've all seen the evidence, you're not convincing anyone.
