Hope they don't make it. I liked Indy 4, but only as a way of closing off the series, having him settle down with Marion and so on. It's gotta end there - Both Ford and Spielberg are too old to make it work at this point.

Also: Shia is shiat.

I didn't like "Crystal Skull" while I was watching it. Walked out of the theatre just complaining bitterly to my wife about hackneyed, forced, contrived, fucking aliens.....then my 8-yr. old commented that he liked it and thought Mutt was cool.

And I realized that for him, he isn't stuck with 25 yrs. of backstory, this was "his" first Indiana Jones and to kids Mutt and Indy are "equals". He had seen the others on TV and DVD.....but aren't burdened with canon.

So kids won't really care as much as adults, like the newer Star Wars movies. To him Obi-Wan = Ewan MacGregor as much as Sir Alec Guiness.

As long as George Lucas doesn't write the story, it could be ok.

This sounds like a shitty idea ..................................and it will probably make 60 million at the box office in it's opening weekend.

This kid is Hollywood cash-cow and they will milk it until the last drop comes out of Shia teats. That is when Shia turns thirty and has a heroin addiction.

The transformation of Marion from a hard drinking action heroine into a frumpy, one dimensional, distinctly un-MILF like soccer mom was one of the saddest moments of my film watching career.

Indy 4 sucked.

The fridge scene.

Aliens.

That kid turns out to be his son.

Gh3yer than a parade of guys in their underpants waving rainbow banners.

Indy 2? Suck with stupid annoying kid and stupid annoying woman.

Indy 1 was the best of the series but I still somehow managed to enjoy Indy 4. Maybe because when I think "Indiana Jones" I think 'speculative fiction in a 20th century adventurer setting' not 'fantasy, and only fantasy', so Indy discovering magical artefacts in the 1930s seemed about as plausible storyline-wise to me as Indy dealing with Roswell. A lot of the extended universe stuff has tie-ins with other mythologies and conspiracies, atlantis etc.

I understood the fridge thing, I mean, it's supposed to be lead-shielded or something, but I wondered if it's really that much lead and if even with Indy's total indestructability he should really be walking after that. Still, I kinda enjoyed it. They had two groups of angry natives!

I LOL at people who cried about the fridge scene. Because, yeah, Indy should not be so blatantly ridiculous! What's next, hah, him walking on thin fucking air?

Oh, wait....

And an awesome line it was too. Like Sir Percival was some kind of 1000 year old gameshow host.

Do you say it in the bathroom? Cause I know some chili dishes that'll make you get on your knees.

(Referring, of course, to the penitent man line.)

Doing penance. After passing one of those meals, you can't help but lose power in your lower half and just slide off the throne to your knees.
