Wellon Dowd: These two should apologize for not showing the goods in Spring Breakers.[i.imgur.com image 460x460]
gunga galunga: And since they mentioned Spielberg and Crystal Skull, they could have also included that Spielberg said he meant Last Crusade to be an apology for Temple of Doom.
gunga galunga: maweimer9: teenage mutant ninja rapist: Englebert Slaptyback: FanoTemple of Doom is an excellent sequel, if you can get past Kate Capshaw. And anyhow, she's a nightclub dancer, how could she be any less annoying?Fun fact - Temple was a prequel, not a sequel. And if a movie could ever be overrated and underrated at the same time, TOD would be it, IMHO.One thing you can say about ToD is that unlike any of the other movie of the franchise, Indiana Jones actually goes through a character arc. He grows as a person, whereas in all the other movies, he is pretty much the same person at the end of the movie as he is at the beginning. At the beginning of ToD, we see that sometime since his youth, he has lost his way (probably around the time he porked the underage daughter of his mentor). He has gone from "it belongs in a museum" to "fortune and glory". As Chatha Lal delights in reminding him, he had already caused trouble and made a bad name for himself in several countries. (Not to mention that in Raiders, Belloq reminds Indy that they are not much different when it came down to it.) At the beginning of the movie, he is willing to trade away a priceless artifact for a diamond. It is his adventures in ToD, most particularly freeing the imprisoned children, the restores him to his original idealistic beliefs, paving the way for Raider which is why I believe Lucas had this movie set before the others.
Mugato: Indy goes through a similar arc in Raiders. He finds that Marion is alive and instead of untying her and making a run for it, he ties her back up and goes after the Ark. Then later he threatens to blow up the Ark because all he wants is Marion. He ultimately can't go through with it but it's clear that he cares more for her than the Ark.

Unlike the rest of the individuals on this list, Halle Berry did not apologize for Catwoman. She blamed Warner Brothers.
"I want to thank Warner Bros. Thank you for putting me in a piece of s---, god awful movie."
//Can we retroactively take back her and Cuba Gooding Jr's Oscars?
t3knomanser: Englebert Slaptyback: He ended the Republic? Really? I didn't watch anything past Phantom Menace but that sounds like an awful stretch.Yes, he actually did. Really.
Spaced Lion: Movie, nothin'. I'm still waiting for Lucas to apologize for this:[2.bp.blogspot.com image 809x600]
Fano: gunga galunga: Mugato: gunga galunga: And since they mentioned Spielberg and Crystal Skull, they could have also included that Spielberg said he meant Last Crusade to be an apology for Temple of Doom.Which is bullshiat, since ToD is at least as good as Last Crusade. ToD had that screeching wife of his and that dinner scene but Last Crusade was way too slapstick-y. Sallah and Marcus were drunken idiots and Indy kept falling down and making goofy faces. Raiders Indy, out of embarrassment, would have shot Last Crusade Indy like he was an A-rab brandishing a scimitarWhat was wrong with the dinner scene in ToD?And as far as Last Crusade goes, I would also throw in Indy pretending to be a Scottish interior decorator to infiltrate a Nazi stronghold. That was for me, the low point in the entire franchise until Plinkett's review of Crystal Skull convinced me that the quicksand scene was worse.Well, the dinner scene is just a gross out sequence. My Indian fiance has never hinted that any item on the menu was ever eaten. Then again, Hollywood seemed to have the idea that Asians consider chilled monkey brains a delicacy, based on what I'll never know.
Englebert Slaptyback: Short Round = Jar-Jar
Mugato: movieman_1979: List fails without Russell Mulcahy apologizing for 'Highlander II: The Quickening'...at the premiere...in front of the crowd in attendance...before walking out 15 minutes into the film..yeahSupposedly the director's cut is infinitely better. I'll take their word for it.
gunga galunga: List is missing Sandra Bullock apologizing for Speed 2.And since they mentioned Spielberg and Crystal Skull, they could have also included that Spielberg said he meant Last Crusade to be an apology for Temple of Doom.I think the problem with Spielberg and the Indiana Jones sequels stems from a remark he made during one of the featurettes on the Raiders DVD where he said he always meant for it to be a B movie. The original Raiders is, of course, an A movie classic, but he definitely approached the sequels like he was making B movies.
dragonchild: SpdrJay: I want Ridley Scott to apologize for Prometheus by releasing a director's cut that doesn't suck.Prometheus doesn't suck; it's just misunderstood. It's a meta movie, told from character perspective, where all the players in a GURPS session catastrophically fail all their skill checks. It's one of the greatest sci-fi comedies of our generation.
t3knomanser: You Are All Sheep: LL316: What should he apologize for? Star Wars were made for children and children love them. End of story.I love all my dismembering and decapitating live action kids movies.And the politics. Kids just love international space politics and trade disputes.
