First screening review up on Aint It Cool News, and...it's not good. Apparently others at the screening felt the same way about it.

Non-spoiler complaints include LaBoof (of course), cheap sets, bad jokes, a lack of real suspense, and a lackluster Ford.

Strangely, no complaints about Lucas's story.

If all this turns out to be accurate, all I can say is Told Ya So.

we'll see. i remember positive reviews back in 2002 of "Attack of the Clones" on AICN, and we know how that turned out.

but i'll prepare myself to have my childhood destroyed, again, by Lucas.

Are you ever positive? At the point as a rational movie fan I'm much more inclined to give the benefit of the doubt to Spielberg over AICN, word was they weren't even showing it until Cannes.

Well from the looks of this review Lucas isn't what you should be worried about. It's the execution.

And that's okay, for every cynical person's childhood that was "destroyed", there's a younger, new fan who loved the prequels and will be just as inspired by them as you were by the originals.

But, seriously, it would be a better morning if whoever wrote that review had come out and said that the movie kicked-ass and that it was the best thing since bread came sliced and that he can't wait to see it again, right? Right?

Ahhhhhhhhhh well. Damn.

crushing expectations, hopes, and dreams is always good to up the traffic on your website.

that said, i didn't read the review thoroughly since i don't want the spoilers, but it is entirely within the realm of possibility that this movie could totally suck. i think the trailers are good, and i am excited to revisit a very compelling character and find out what's happened since LC.

but it could suck. Lucas and Spielberg are much different men. Spielberg is more interested in being taken seriously these days, and Lucas ... well, he seems to have been living in a hermetically sealed bubble since 1982 where Justin Timberlake makes so much sense as the template for Anakin Skywalker.

Like they'd go through all those writers, drafts, and false-starts just to pick a bad one and phone it in, even if it isn't mind-boggling I doubt it will be anything less than great summer entertainment.

i agree that if the sole motivation was cash, we'd have had an Indy 4 in the early 1990s.

but then again, Ford is o-l-d.

if it was ever going to happen, it had to happen now.



but sometimes movies are good, and sometimes they aren't. you can't buy magic.

I'm still reserving judgment on the movie until I friggin' see it. One of the reviewers said Temple of Doom was his 2nd-fave after Raiders... I mean, come on.

If it's entertaining, then it's done it's job. I wasn't around to see those movies when they first came out, so maybe my attachment to the series isn't as great as others around here - even if I watched them endlessly on tape/DVD as a kid. Gonna see it right after school on opening day.
