interesting article in the NYT today, and it ends with this nice summarization that i happen to agree with:

[q]The big action scenes in the Indiana Jones movies are almost risibly inorganic to the narratives that contain them. This kind of randomness is risky — not to be tried at home, or by any filmmaker less prodigiously gifted than Mr. Spielberg. You need a rigorous imagination for visual comedy to make movies as exhilaratingly ridiculous as these.

“John Williams and I have a word we use when we have something we think the audience will love,” Mr. Spielberg said, referring to the composer who has scored all the Indiana Jones movies. “Maybe it’ll be a little over the top, and we ask each other, ‘Are we being too shameless?’ In a way I think we’ve both grown kind of proud of being shameless.”

When the jokes are good, as they frequently are in the Indy pictures, there’s every reason for pride. These goofy movies tell you as much about Steven Spielberg as his more serious work does. Movies truly are a form of recreation for him, and he’s the kind of artist who reveals himself fully in the intensity of his play. In the Indiana Jones movies he revives the spirit of silent comedy in the adventures of an intellectual with a bullwhip. And that’s a feat that, whether you think it’s worth doing or not, at least deserves high marks for degree of difficulty. If only everybody else in Hollywood hadn’t tried to imitate him, he’d have nothing to be ashamed of at all.

1. Raiders, 2.Crusade, 3. Doom.

I don't have any expectations other than I hope it's not an embarassement to the series like Die Hard 4.0 and that Ford can still physically act Indiana Jones. (I guess no one thought of doing a prequel with a younger actor - it worked for Batman and Bond)

Along with the new Bond and HP 6 (and maybe Batman) easily my most anticipated movie of the year.

Ummm, Batman's a reboot, not a prequel and they did the Young Indiana Jones television show.

Well, the story itself was a prequel, it's true they used a new director and the movies went to a new direction.

The Indiana Jones Chronicles was done (I watched both the "kid" and "young" Indy series - are they considered "canon" and was Lucas involved with those ?), but would that idea not work in a movie too ?

The story is not a prequel. It doesn´t have anything to do with Tim Burton´s Batman, not only in terms of story, but in terms of character. It is a complete reboot of the franchise.

Yeah, it can't be a prequel because it tells the origin story over again, and it's completely different from the one in Burton's film.

Also, if Wayne Manor is destroyed at the end of Nolan's film, it couldn't be standing in the "later" Burton installments.

Or the fact that Gordon (or anybody else in Gotham for that matter) has no idea who Batman is. Plus he's a fat grumpy old man in Burton's version.

You don't think it'll be rebuilt like mentioned at the end of Batman Begins?

Someday, I'm sure Lucas will fuck up the series by making some prequels with bad dialogue and even worse acting, with special effects that make it look much, much more developed than Raiders.
