As far as Indy 4 is concerned, I don't know about the rest of you, but I really did love it. Spielberg took a moment at the beginning to acknowledge that, yes, Indy/Harrison is older now, but we're not going to let that stop us from having a good time. I dont' think it was a disappointment to discover Shia was Indy's son, since Spielberg said from the beginning when he had hoped Connery was going to come back that the film was going to be three generations of Jones' together. As far as CGI is concerned, i never even noticed it, so either I'm becoming numb to it's somewhat offputting qualities, or, it just wasn't that bothersome to me. It was one of the greatest film experiences of my life, mainly for the same reason I loved the Prequel Star Wars trilogy: I didn't get to experience it the first time around, and for that reason it is special, and no bad review is going to stop me from loving it.

As far as Lance is concerned...there was no way in hell I was seeing Speed Racer, so I'm sorry I can't compare the two for him, but as I understand it, in his point of view, if I loved Indy 4 this much, Speed Racer would've instantly ripped my heart out Indy 2 style

Here's my rebuttal to the Hulk review. I don't even know where to begin with the Indy one:

Quote:
It's definitely a good movie. Bana, Connelly, Elliot, and Nolte were all awesome in this, especially Bana. Lee's direction was inventive and entertaining. It's one thing to have a good movie, a good superhero movie, and a good Hulk movie. I think it hits the first two, but not the third. It doesn't attempt to balance Banner's inner struggle with the full-on Hulk-smashing action you expect to see. Plus, the end is some battle with symbolism (he's fighting his father and the unknown, oh noez!). Saying you expect better from people for not using their brain is an obtuse statement. The film's just not a strong representation of its main character, which is what ultimately killed its chance of success. It's a summer action flick that doesn't deliver on the action. I haven't need the new one yet, but would really like to. Hopefully it'll be more balanced with action/character drama than this good, not great, movie.
It's not the model of professionalism either, but he doesn't deserve it anyway.

Exactly. You need to prove you're not just complaining. You need to show that your complaint is not something you take lightly.

Is this by any chance the guy you alluded to earlier to me?

And I enjoy describing the comment as "obtuse." BoMac would be proud.

Impy quoted him in his sig. I e-mailed Dalt about it, actually.

Yes but he who inspired would not be proud because he who inspired thinks LMP is a little bastard.
