Why does everyone over think movies. Just enjoy them and have fun. With all the craziness in the world, war, gas prices, food prices, and everything else all I ask is a few hours of mindless fun. Indy movies always seem to do that.
The rocket jet thing- Cool, funny best beat by far
The warehouse scene- Okay- good parts
The motorcycle chase through the college- hmmmm, not sure
The chase through the jungle- smashy bits of cars were neat
The red ants- not necessary
The atom bomb- Why?
The sword fight- bad
The vine swinging- really bad
The monkeys- Fake looking and really bad
The Marion Ravenwood part- sad
The crystal whatever- huh?
The waterfalls- unbelieveably bad
The spaceshit- pathetic
The wedding- painful
The Shia- Needs to go away- Jar Jar Binks needs to replace him, thats how bad.
The talking- worst part by far- pointless, poitless and pointless...
now, indiana jones was by no means an amazing movie, but one cookay? that means that by odd todd's reckoning, this movie was as bad as flight-plan, and only slightly better than son of the mask. really? that bad?
Since when did Indy become a f##king joke? There were never any of those stupid scenes that make you just shake your head. Monkeys, Pieiera (SP) Dogs, Nukes, Waterfall, the fact that the story line makes NO SENSE! (What kind of a great gift is death?). I can just picture Lucas "HEY GUYS, WE RUINED STAR WARS, I THINK WE NEED TO DO THE SAME HERE.... I'M THINKING ALIENS!!!". I just DO NOT understand how you can make such sh#te after the last films! Makes me sad.
It's like this. I really actively hated this movie obviously. Are there technically "worse" movies out there who may have gotten more cookays... yeah. I guess so. But those movies might be just boring or whatever and don't affect me emotionally. Just whatever and I could pick a thing here or there that I liked.
This movie was like radioactive and it made me angry.
In many ways, this movie is better than the "Last Crusade." At the very least, the audience didn't have to put up with the cutsie, 80s-style, one liners. Oh, there were one liners but they were honest observations of the character's current situation--that is, actual SITCOM instead of belabored and pretentious puns that littered the third movie.
It also had the best "logo transition" gag of all the movies. The Paramount mountain becaomes a molehill. Brilliant satire both of the producers and of the audience who thought Indy movies were more than they actually are. This is the same ill-educated crowd who hated Phantom Menace, saying it wasn't a "star wars" movie."
Get over your distorted nostalgia, kiddies. This was exactly what an Indy movie feels like. It's not the best of the four but it isn't the worst either. It's an Indy movie.
I have to say you are missing the point. Indiana Jones is entertainment. it's not suppose to be mission impossible. don't think too hard about the story and just RELAX. the movie made me laugh, forget about life's stresses, and just be entertained. that's what it's all about. your expectations are higher than a gorilla's during mating season. RELAX. enough of these crappy ass movie reviews. untightened your belt buckle and get some spirit in you.
I Saw this yesterday, and I have to say it sucked. The first half had the feeling that it was just a private nostalgia trip for Lucas and Spielberg as they sat around in their old folks home reminiscing about their childhood. The middle part (illogical car chase through jungle, swinging on vines, taking the duck over the waterfall) felt like it was sub-contracted out to a sophomore film class at a second rate University, where the students hadn't actually seen an Indy film, but had heard their parents talk about them, so thought they knew what was expected. The final section with the spaceship was just plain insulting. Not only did it jar with the supernatural endings of the other films, it just made no sense. If the aliens were just going to leave when the skill came back, why did they hang around to have the skull stolen in the first place. Why not leave when they had all died in the fiirst place? It's not like they were doing anything with their time when they were dead. And what happeded to Kate Blanchet? She exploded because she knew too much stuff?? Come on! And what happened to the baddies who were sucked into the other dimention. Are they living it up, being treated like kings by the aliens (or maybe kept in a zoo) or are they dead now? Some closure please. Also while it was nice to see Marion again, the whole Indy's son thing and the wedding were a slap in the face to the audience. Can we say "spin-off series" kiddies?
I could go on and on, but I'll just end on a positive note by saying the ants were cool.
i like the movie. i gave it 3 stars in my netflix review. it was okay. i loved seeing harrison ford as indy again. then i went out and bought the lego indiana jones adventures. i can't get through the first part of the game that opens the other levels. i keep getting hit by stone heads! lots of them!
