... donít let Indy go out like that!
by Sturdy

I have to admit that I was blown away by the incredibly divided response to INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL from the fans. At last count, we had almost 120 strike backs here, and views seem to be split down the middle for those that loved it and those that hated it. This isnít a review of CRYSTAL SKULL, but I will say I was disappointed in the film. Even still, itís Indy-frickiní Jones, so it was still better than most of the crap we see on the big screen. However, regardless if you thought the film was shit, or the shit, I think we can all agree that the Indy craze is back and we need more of him.


Theyíre all great, just keep it going.

A few years after Crusade, we got the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, which were a mixed bag. I thought some episodes were great and others were pretty bad. Overall I enjoyed the series, but Indy belongs on the big screen, plain and simple. With the overwhelming response and hype to the fourth film, Lucas and company are in a good position to pick this franchise up and continue the adventures of Dr. Jones and maybe even his sonÖ


No worries Indy, just grab on to the vinesÖ

As surprised as I was at the divided responses, Iím just as surprised at the division over Shiaís character. I find it odd, but it seems people who hated the film actually liked Mutt, while those that loved the film could do without him. Iím not sure what to make of that, but I for one liked him and would be more than happy seeing him in some sort of hybrid Indiana Jones adventure. I think Ford still has a couple more turns with Indiana in him, but Shia is a worthy replacement once Ford decides to hang up the fedora and embrace old age.


Shia did a great job.

I think we can also agree that 19 years is waaaaaayyyyy too long between Indiana films. Hell, we canít go more than 8 years between BATMAN films and theyíve changed that franchise a couple of times. With Indy, the principles are still friends and everyone seems to love Indiana. But hereís another thing that might ruffle some feathers in the fanboy world; Iím ok if Spielberg doesnít direct another Indiana film. Of course heís the greatest director of all time and he can do no wrong, but we could use another take on the character from behind the lens. I could also do without Kaminski, but thatís a different column for another day.


I love Steven, but itís ok if someone else takes over.

Basically, I love Indiana Jones and I hated that we had to go so long between films. Lucas is the king of milking things dry, so he should be right on board with giving us more Indiana Jones. Harrison Ford seems to still get a kick out of playing the character and Shia LaBeouf is more than ready to handle an increased role. Letís get them back together and come up with some more adventures for them. Whatever they decide to do, hereís hoping they donít wait 19 years to do it.

Thank you Deejay, Spielberg doesn't have the balls to stand up to Lucas as he seems to me the kind of guy who would throw his toys right out of the pram and pull the funding if he doesn't get his way. Lucas is only in the business of entertaining himself and no one else and will forever remain ignorant of the people who paid for his house and the clothes he's wearing. Unfortunately he has no soul

YEP . . . LEAVE OUT LUCAS

His story for this movie was far worse than anything he conceived in even the Star Wars prequels, and he needs to stop. I am up for another Indy if they can somehow get rid of Lucas (unlikely) just so they can redeem themselves from the terrible Crystal Skull (seriously, this was FAR worse than National Treasure 2). If they cannot lose Lucas, then they need to let the franchise rest in peace.

And to the below, I wholeheartedly agree. Iron Man, Speed Racer, and Prince Caspian were all FAR

And what sucks the most...

is that this Indiana Jones will be the highest grossing of the four. And frankly, it sucked the most.

I agree that this could've been much better. But I blame Lucas and not Spielberg and Kaminzki.
I'd love to watch a new Indiana movie where Lucas was not involved

Crystal Skull was exactly what the team said it would be. A spin on 50's B-movie science fiction. And I loved it for that. With that in mind, I would love to see Indy & co. tackle yet more adventures. And if you really wanted to be brave, end Fords involvement in a death scene later down the road. I think he'd be hip to the idea seeing it's something he wanted to do to Solo. Mix it all up a bit.

I would love if Spielberg and Lucas continued the series with Ford and Shia. I can see a couple more movies happening. I would not like a new director though.

porkchopexpress

porkchopexpress deserves a beer. He singly handily described what should be the next C'mon Hollywood - "George, just fucking retire already."

I have no second thoughts about saying the next film would be better if
A)Lucas just gave his money and shut the fuck up and let people who can write movies, write (Que - Writers from LOST/BSG)

B)Lucas, stay out of the franchise all together. Stop being a fucking Indy-Nazi (pun intended?) with your ideas. Indy is not a kids movie, its not starwars.

Have you grown up yet?.. Stop with this kiddy shit. We need heads exploding, hearts being ripped out, faces melting. Not kids swinging from vines and monkeys killing the badguys and Trees safely putting us in water.

Go back to its religious routes. A schmoe said "Excalibur". Sounds good. Christs crown of thorns?, even better. Stop with the CGI, Stop with the kitty shit.

But What About ...

Could we the audience accept an ENTIRELY new creative team? Not just behind the lens, but perhaps in front of it too? Like the 'Bond' evolution, could we see another actor in the fedora?

I agree & disagree

The roblem with Indiana Jones is not the gap between movies, the creative direction, or even the marketing ploys; the problem lies with overzealous fans who build themselves up so high that Indy can't possibly live up to expectations. So last summer, after being pleased but nowhere near as excited as I should have been with "Spider-Man 3", I learned to lower my expectations and either I'll be thrilled or not surprised. Same goes for Indy. Y'know what? This summer is already way better than last

Same goes for Indy. Y'know what? This summer is already way better than last year and i couldn't be happier. Indy rocked, Iron Man rocked, and I got a funny feeling I'm going to be the only person who praises "Speed Racer" because I understood early on in the film what the Wachowski brrothers were trying to do and I got it unlike a lot of people. So, while I enjoyed how the sci-fi aspect was handled, I don't want it to become routine for Indy. "Crystal Skull" should stand on its own as the "sci-fi" Indy as a welcome change of pace. So, yeah, I'm up for another trilogy of Indy. First set os his younger years; second his later years. So, people, lighten up, take a deep breath, and be thrilled. Otherwise, go rent a DVD.

Let The Beef fly


Not only did I love Indy IV, but I liked Mutt's character.

Honestly... I've given up on championing for it because I think the negative reactions to it are symptoms of the subject matter. I'll say it a million times: "It wasn't Raiders... so people freaked", but I digress....

Anyways, I actually think they NEED to continue the franchise with Mutt's character instead of Indy. I think it might be the only way people will not suddenly reel at different approaches. I'm certain it's gonna be a knee-jerk reaction.

If they make Indy V and it's not about The Spear of Destiny, or something to that effect (God forbid it be some supernatural norse thing, chinese thing ala the Emperor's Tomb thing, which'd be great, but will probably piss people off too) I sense more negativity.


But maybe if it's Mutt people will see it as a different character, hence they'll give it more leeway.... or totally abandon the franchise.

Gah... I guess you can't really tell.


BTW, I am a foremost proponent for subtle-cgi and the Guillermo del Toro school of creature design (read: makeup, latex, suits)... HOWEVER... I'm willing to forgive it given the circumstances.

And the circumstances provided in Indy IV were just fine. GET OVER IT, YOU WHINY LITTLE C#*@&s. We live in the modern age, not everything has to be Harryhausen monsters and miniatures to look good.

I say what the hell do another. Crystal Skull was enjoyable and maybe I need to see it again before I make final judgement. I use to try to defend Lucas and his new ways but he is an idiot. Does he really think cg is the answer to a better movie? What made the action scenes in Indiana Jones films so good was that they were real stunts done by real people with real things. It took away some of the action for me. Lucas has this idea of cute cgi things that are going to get kids excited(Jar Jar,

It took away some of the action for me. Lucas has this idea of cute cgi things that are going to get kids excited(Jar Jar, gophers, monkeys)and they just failed. I think they should make a new Indy though and not let it end on such a sour note. Lucas needs to shut up and sit back and let Spielberg and Ford do it all. It won't happen though I bet. As far as Mutt taking over I'm fine with it if it is a spinoff but not if he is "taking over" the whip and fedora. Let Mutt be his own character not the replacement.

Honestly I liked Crystal Skull but I didnt like it as much as the other 3, I thought it was way too obvious in the direction it was going and some of the action was a bit over the top but thats forgiveable cuz there were other parts in the other three that were a tad over the top. I was entertained for 2 hrs so Im not complaining too much and I also know quite a few people who have seen and theyve all liked with the exception of one. I wouldnt hate another Indy movie just dont let Lucas have

I was entertained for 2 hrs so Im not complaining too much and I also know quite a few people who have seen and theyve all liked with the exception of one. I wouldnt hate another Indy movie just dont let Lucas have much creative input. As of right now Im still neutral on Shia taking over or whatever, I say it can work as long as they dont call him Indiana Jones, cuz Harrison is the only Indy in my mind, it could work but I wouldnt mind another Indy movie before they create a franchise based on Shia but even if they never did another Indy I would be ok cuz Ive still got three of my favorite movies ever and then an enjoyable fourth. Im sitting at 8/10 for Crystal Skull .

I don't want to see anyone else take over , Ford as Indy with a limited role is even worse than space aliens and Mummy cgi .

I wonder what will happen in the next adventure , will he go into space , where else is there to go , or he can do a Jason goes to Manhattan and search for lost treasure in 60s era Soho .

I dread the thought of Lucas involved in another one , because i agree i do want another one , so they can redeem this still steaming pile of what were they thinking .

There is no motivation to do things any other way that they did this time around , it made a killing at the box office on sheer nostalgia alone , so why would they try anything different , we'll just get another lazy uninspired effort with horrendous cgi , bored and uninterested characters and cliched russian bad guys with terrible accents .


No matter what , i just hope they bring back the gophers , that really made the movie for me , it was genius ( i'm beginning to think kids love cgi rodents , every movie they are in does well at the box office ).

I honestly thought i was going to hear the Caddyshack theme when i saw that gopher in the opening shot , lol .


There is something odd though , at times , Crystal meth was actually funnier than Caddyshack , but i think that was unintentional .


It no doubt works as a hilarious spoof of an actual Indy film .

Hey Sturdy

You're too easily impressed.

I havent met a single person that liked this film... even as a film. One person even told me National Treasure was better to him.

if we don't all stand together and demand more for our $10 then we will continue to get these shitty cash-in movies.

Lucas will only make things worst

"Only nerds and critics didn't like it. Normally families enjoyed it very much."

I have yet to meet one person who is willing to admit liking this film, let alone an entire family of people who like it. I recall people booing in my theater, some were children, and some were those children's parents.

I have yet to meet one person who is willing to admit liking this film, let alone an entire family of people who like it. I recall people booing in my theater, some were children, and some were those children's parents.

I have less of an issue with Shia as I do how Speilberg intended on facilitating the character of Mutt to try and make us sympathize for Oxley (a dumb plot-device of a character in which John Hurt totally wastes his vast talent) by having him cry in the background of scenes when he had nothing better to do.

The big problem in all this cannot be traced back to Speilberg though (despite..going by the trailer, its obvious that he used some of the weaker takes of scenes for the final cut of the movie), for the most part he was the best thing about this movie. The problem is ultimately Lucas, how he envisioned the movie and how much of his original idea (his original vision for the fourth film was something called 'Indiana Jones and the Saucer Men') made its way into the final product.

It was his original vision of this film that prevented it from being made right after The Last Crusade (neither Ford nor Speilberg wanted any part of how he originally envisioned the fourth film) and now he intends on making a fifth film that will only feature Harrison Ford in a cameo.

The only way to make a good Indiana Jones movie is to somehow buy out Lucas. But that's not gonna happen anyway, whatever Lucas has within his meants to ruin, he will. Harrison Ford has gone on record to say he has no interest in a fifth film, so right now the best you'll get is a movie starring Shia LeBoeuf and having "Indiana Jones" in its title but not featuring the title character.

Complementing "Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls" and only saying "well, its not without its problems" is ignoring the fact that its just not an Indiana Jones movie in any way. Whereas the original trilogy the writers actually took the time to lend some sense of realism at times to the premise, nothing in the execution of this film's premise seems grounded in reality. Almost every plot point is executed only to make the audience laugh. This is less an action/adventure and more a comedy.

Bottom line, if you want a good movie, you'll need an original idea for its premise (which Lucas will never allow), a writer who is more than a proxy for George Lucas (which Lucas will never allow) and Harrison Ford returning (despite he has no intention of returning at all).

Indy, good.

Mutt, not so much.

And maybe it's time for Spielberg to divorce Lucas and get sole custody of their child, Indy?

'Cause I still can't believe that Spielberg, Ford and Darabont had to acquiesce to the writer responsible for the Star Wars prequels.

Sigh.

Yes, I know it made 100(+) in theaters but that doesnt mean it is a good movie. The only reason people LIKE this movie because it is INDY.....Come on people...So go like Spidey 3 because its Spiderman. I would rather go watch another National Treasure instead of another Indy.

I DON'T THINK....

... new Indy movie is a great idea, especially if Lucas writes the story. Crystal Skull had to endure comparison with other 3 movies, and failed. I haven't read ANY good argument why is the movie good, and have already supplied dozen reasons why it sucks. "Take it for what it is" won't do. I leave now Crystal Skull to oblivion. And as for Spielberg being the greatest director of all times: no way.

I wasn't bowled over by part IV, but I liked it a lot just the same. I'd gladly go see a few more Indy flicks.

Replacing Spielberg though, I dunno about all that... He should always be the guy behind the camera for this series, but I also see how his schedule gets so damned busy they may get stuck waiting forever for him if they did want to go ahead.

Yeah, I agree with Hoyle. While I'm not gonna lay off the Lucas bashing Kaminsky's cinematography didn't suit the movie at all. The lighting and backdrops also all seemed a little unnatural. I am convinced if they gave it another shot they would get it right, Spielberg said he would do another one if the fans wanted it and guess what we do but not for the reasons he wants us to

IF Ford agrees...

...then I'd be game for at least one more go. I don't know how well I cared for the Russians, or even the inter-dimensional beings. But while I think they kind of tied up the Henry Jones Jr.-as-adventurer, I'd be for that. I neither liked nor disliked terribly Mutt's part. But Ford was the reason I fell in love with the man to begin with, and he's the reason I'd be game for more. In fact, while I didn't dislike too immensely the fourth movie, I felt it suffered because he didn't do enough crazy

I disagree in almost any case with Lucas-bashing. Not that I don't agree the man's got his problems, but I also feel like he's been turned into the sort of butt of jokes that's still undeserving. Kaminsky, on the other hand, I'd be happy if they left behind. As good a cinematographer as he is, he's not right for the material.

I loved the movie. Loved the characters (Mutt was cool, but Indy's still THE MAN!), love the 50's feeling and its mix with the plot, which I thought was extremely adequate and well-done.

I have no problem with a non-religious plot. People tend to not connect to these Indiana Jones plots, but it's really their fault and not the filmakers.

I loved the scene where Indy says that the aliens are archeologists, just like him. I think, character-wise, it relates way better to Indiana Jones than

I also didn't mind the CGI, which was really well-made. The gophers were on-screen just a few seconds, surely not enough for me to bring down the ENTIRE movie because of them. The same can be said about the monkeys. Sure, it felt awkward, but still not enough to ruin an Indiana Jones movie.

Concerning the plausability of the action scenes, I think this is not a valid question since all of the previous Indiana Jones movies also have lots of implausible scenes.
