Labeouf Not Indy

10.14.2008

I was flying to San Francisco last week to visit my mistress, and on the plane I was presented with the option of watching INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL or the SEX AND THE CITY movie. I gave Indy a chance but was disenchanted within minutes. Meanwhile Carrie and crew had me weeping all the way to the Golden State. So it is with much indifference that I bring you this news, because like most of you I believe the Indy franchise has passed its prime. Nonetheless, Indiana himself, Harrison Ford has offcially laid to rest rumours that Shia LaBeouf will be assuming the titular role in the series' next installment.

No, that's never been (the idea)... I think it just doesn't work that way. And there's definitely a distinction between passing the fedora and someone picking it up.

Frankly I'm relieved. Shia as Indy? Or even the next incarnation of Indy? That's just um, pushing it.
Extra Tidbit: You liked the latest Indy, didn't you.

What I liked is the idea behind KotCS. With Indy having aged about 10-20 more years and the story taking place in the 50's...it was fitting for the movie to be an homage to the 1950's sci-fi movies...as the previous 3 were an homage to the 1930's adventure serials, as they took place in the 1930's.

your exactly right. i now have new respect for the movie. i didnt enjoy it regardless


i wouldnt mind a new version of indy franchise...not sure shia is the man though

Ditto.

I loved KotCS and thought it was fun as hell. Yeah it's not perfect (Looking at you, Vine Swinging Labeouf) nor is it the best, but it definitely deserves it's spot along the Indiana Jones movies.

P.S. The South Park episode made me LOL, even if I liked KotCS

2nd That DarkElfa

I guess I am not the Only "Butters" Who Enjoyed KotCS. I thought It was a great Way to pass two Hours. I liked Having Indy back if just for a little bit. And Unlike so many of you I did not have my hopes up for it being The Indy MOvie to end all Indy movies.
But Then again I liked Temple of Doom Better then Raiders. But that is only because it was the first indy I saw as a child.

Bottom line those of you who saw Indy get "Raped" By Spielberg and Lucas...Get some Counseling..help is out

Give it a rest!

First off, I'll just say that I thoroughly enjoyed Crystal Skull. Now it could be that its because I didn't build it up in my head to be the next return of Christ or it may just be that unlike so many of the hateful dicks and armchair critics that ruin this site, I'm not a joyless fuck.

That said, I 100% disagree with nodirectionhome and those who share his view. Maybe the reason you didn't enjoy the film isn't because Spielberg and Lucas have grown old, Maybe its because you have. I

That said, I 100% disagree with nodirectionhome and those who share his view. Maybe the reason you didn't enjoy the film isn't because Spielberg and Lucas have grown old, Maybe its because you have. I realized not too long ago that many of the movies I spent my childhood loving, I loved because I was a child. We all expect and desperately hope to be whisked away to the innocence of our youth, but no film will do that for you because your youth is gone and with it any resemblance of innocence. You've lived too long, seen too many movies and your ability to suspend disbelief has become as used up as a crusty condom. Stop blaming you're hang ups on movies people and blame your own lack of imagination.

This isn't a personal attack either, this is aimed at all of the haters here. Everytime a story comes up about a film, you come on here and moan and whine. give it a rest already, you guys cry foul before the picture is even in pre-production nowadays so don't tell me I'm over reacting.

Indy 4 wasn't bad, your expectations were just impossible. I suggest you stop watching sequels to films from your lost childhood, you won't feel that way again and spending your free time bitching about CGI won't ever bring it back.

That said, didn't we go through all of this garbage after the Star Wars prequels? Well, if you smacktards didn't learn your lesson that time around then Lucas deserves all of the hard earned money you blindly handed over and you've forfeited your right to complain about it.

I couldnt have said it better.. these visionaries are now just old men who all of a sudden left their talent/vision at the door...

Not so much spielberg, still love his work, but Lucas? Man is a walking joke and takes himself too seriously

I enjoyed indy 4, until the end, sure the alien shit was the theme in the 50's, but uh, we're not in the 50's.... or am i on crack?

I mean seriously, there was a lot if retarded shit in indy 4 and Star Wars episodes 1-3

I think its time some people start hanging up their careers = i respect the shit outta Lucas but its time to go

I was enjoying the hell out of Indy 4 until the spotlight moved off of Ford and onto LaBeouf. What were they thinking? We want to see Indiana Jones kicking ass and pushing the adventure forward, we don't want to see Indiana quietly follow along.

This is green because I'm happy the torch isn't being passed to LaBeouf.

I agree w/ Kerr. I enjoyed the movie but it didn't compare to the previous ones. Harrison didn't seem the same to me in this one. It might be time to pass the fedora...... to the casket. RIP

Liked it and proud of it

I enjoyed Crystal Skull, certainly not as good as the originals but a good way to spend a couple of hours. What a lot of people don't realise is that it's set in the 50s when the public was romanced by the idea of creatures from another world or planet (in the same vein to how people were worried about Nazis toward the end of the 1930s).

I think a lot of people completely missed that, which is a real pity.

it wasn't that bad

It just wasnt the old ones. Most of us saw this shit as kids and we're adults now so our collective sense of imagination and hapiness has been wittled away and destroyed by our grown up responibilities such as jobs and spouses and our own children. Had it came out in like 1992 we would love it as one of the originals. Maybe not raiders but at least temple or crusade. We saw this as a chance to go back to a better time and now as bitter adults we see even the strongest memories from our

If Indiana Jones and Star Wars can't help us nothing. Can that is why Indy failed
and Star Wars pre-trilogy and Terminator 3 and Superman Returns....

They failed not because the movies were bad but, because we are diluted versions of the people who fell in love with them resembling them only in appearance

It wasn't that bad!

Lucas is pissing me off. I've spent every day of my life since the release of KofCS defending Indiana Jones. It honestly wasn't that bad! I'm like everyone else in the world. I wanted it to be as good as Raiders of the Lost Arc, but that just isn't going to happen.

That being said, Shia could NEVER be Indy, and I'm glad Lucas/Speilburg see that. If they ever try Indy one more time, here's to hoping they give the reins to someone else. They've clearly lost their ability to make good

I'll be honest...

...I remember feeling somewhat indifferent when folks were clamoring for a fourth installment. Then I saw the trailer and started getting my hopes up. Not that I expected it to be great, but there was something very wrong in the final film. I think it was the alien head.

That, and I found commies to be a poor substitute for the Third Reich, or even the Thuggee.

The one thing that I thought did work was Harrison Ford. Ironically the nuking the fridge scene was one of the most original

19 years ? For CGI gophers , a nuked fridge and commie bashing monkey's? And while some get peeved at the continous mention of these atrocities(?), they're frankly the only laughable memorable moments in the film. Both creators have lost thier sense of talent which brought them such acclaim in the late 70's through the early '90s. Lucas has become a bastardization of what he claimed film studios were back when he tried to make independent films. I think he viewed film more as an open market,

Lucas has become a bastardization of what he claimed film studios were back when he tried to make independent films. I think he viewed film more as an open market, awaiting the lucrative chance to start a new buisness. It was never about the love of film. Speilberg, however, is a genius and student of cinema. His films always had a childlike quality to them, a sense of wonder, keeping some sense of what once was romantically refered to as the magic of cinema. Just look at him on the set of RAIDERS while overseeing the model layout and speaking of the BUCK RODGER'S serial. But somewhere after JP & SCHINDLER, he kind of went into this dark corprate mindset, kicking out the inner child and locking the door; it's almost as if he's embodied the film HOOK. Peter Pan has grown. He's trying to become a Kubrick-ish director, but its like putting a round peg in a square hole. The background isnt there. Hence, the dark and droll material and shitty cinematography tyring to make a copy of a copy of a copy and calling it original. Now he's just running through the motions, relying on name only to put asses in the seat. So, until both directors can regain some sense of thier earlier selves, this arguement of La-Douche being Indy is stupid; either way the new film will suck. The magic is gone, and as ebert has said on his program, the balcony is closed.

Get over it

Indy 4 could never win no matter what they did. The same people who whined and bellyached for a fourth Indy are now the same ones bitching about the end result. The smartest thing I did was that I lowered my expectations because I am disheartened by Lucas, but I trust Spielberg. And as it turns out, Indy 4 was great. I preferred Darabont's script, but enough of his ideas made it in to make me happy. Also, Indy 4 is getting the bum rap for inclusion of ETs. South Park was hilarious, but it was

It's 1957, the Cold War, 8 years after Roswell & Area 51, the golden age of flying saucers; is it really any harder to believe of Indy seeing ancient alien artifacts than it is to believe that he found the Holy Grail? Or opened the Ark scattering spirits everywhere? People are looking too much into this and giving the film an unfair shake by having unrealistic expectations. Indy 4 was great, matter of fact it made me want them to go forward and make two more films to showcase Indy in his later years with his wife. Get over it people.

Indy 4 was the chance lucas & spielberg had to redeem themselves for the new star wars films, and SW 3 was a chance to redeem themselves for SW 2, and SW 2 was a chance to redeem themselves for phantom menace. they need to stop using icons of entertainment to give themselves more chances, because they are blowing it, over and over again. NO INDY 5!!!!

I love how many morons out there were actually worried about this. It was even in the movie itself that he would NOT be taking Indy's hat--Indy snatches it right out of his hands and puts it back on his own head. George Lucas might have gone nutty, but he's not stupid, nor are Ford or LaBeouf. Sheesh...what a world.

And Extra Tidbit: I did, yes. In fact, I loved it. Every bit as much as the other three (which I didn't have a favorite or least favorite from to begin with.)

Yes Yes Yes Yes

My initial reaction to Indy 4 was disappointment, then I saw it by myself, divorced of all the crazy expectations I had built up for 19 years, and I actually liked it. By the 3rd trip to the cinema, I had a full-on crush on the movie, and by the 8th trip, I could say without reservation, "I loved Indy 4."
Though I'd rank it 4th among the other pictures (1-Doom, 2-Raiders, 3-Crusade), I have come to realize that Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is a fun, funny, light

Though I'd rank it 4th among the other pictures (1-Doom, 2-Raiders, 3-Crusade), I have come to realize that Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is a fun, funny, light adventure film that entertains while still managing to kick the asses of each and every adventure film released since Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. People, my own close friends included, were bound to hate an Indy movie that took a lighter tone than even the whimsical 3rd film.
That reaction is understandable. And yes, I still question why they took so long to make the 4th movie because there was nothing in it that warranted 18 years of scriptwriting or pre-production. Frank Darabant's script was far superior to the one they decided to shoot, and I would have appreciated seeing the characters move about in an actual jungle, not a CGI-enhanced facsimile.
But all that said, Spielberg, Lucas, and Ford did more right than wrong. I hope they make 2 more films so we can have an entire trilogy devoted to Indy's exploits as a seasoned family man. And Spielberg, Lucas, Ford: Please don't be afraid to go darker with part 5. The thrills go better with characters that are in mortal danger at the hands of a ruthless, scary villain.

Indy 4 was horrible. The latest episode of South Park was dead on. Come on..the refrigerator? Monkeys? Aliens? I believe the meaning behind the episode was just for Lucas and Spielberg to bank off Indy and his wide fan base for an easy $800 million. Exactly what the Coen Bros did with Ladykillers and Intolerable Cruelty just to fund No Country. I just hope Spiel and Lucas isn't trying to fund another movie. I'm not for letting Indy rest, i'm for one more hoorah to let Indy go out like a Champ,

Sure Indy is meant to be fun, but movies are capable of being both fun AND good. Crystal Skull was neither. It was hokey, poorly crafted (bad lighting, awful costuming, bland set pieces), could have used a script. Even the score (arguably the best part of the movie) was uninspired. The "lets make a movie just to make it" attitude just doesn't cut it. Raiders recaptured and redefined a genre. Skull was a bad knock-off of another bad knock-off.

I wasn't crazy about Indy 4, but I still look forward to new sequels and I thought Indy 4 was way better than Episode 1, 2 and 3

Actually...

Indiana Jones movies were initially made not just to entertain, but to get nominated for Oscars. Raiders was nominated for Best Picture, amongst other nominations.

But yes, thank goodness Shia isn't taking on more Indiana Jones. Not that I hate the guy... he's just not the guy to do it.

And after I watched Crystal Skull, I turned to my friend, and these were my words: "What the hell was that?"

I loved Crystal Skull. Seems like people got hung up on a few silly moments that add up to around 5mins of the whole film. I enjoyed the hell out of it....so I'm right :)

I too enjoyed the latest installment of INDY. there was nothing in it that was more far fetched than any other Indy movie. and the end bit with the Fedora was priceless.

As a matter of fact, I did like KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL.

I know, hard to believe there's someone who actually did.
