I've heard of three reviews so far and none are positive (bad, average and third best) but for a while now I've been thinking that the reviews are going to be pointless. I mean the odds are that all of the earliest ones (especially on sites like AICN) are going to be written by fanboys who'll be extreme one way or the other.

After the buzz has calmed down and it comes out on DVD, that's when a proper judgement will be made methinks.

Couldn't care about reviews, I am not expecting to see Raiders again and I don't want it to just be a string of rehash and in-jokes.

If I were a big fan of the Indy films ( I guess I am a so-so fan) I would not bother to even watch this


the odds of this movie sucking ?

extremely high

That picture doesn't bother me at all.

We knew already that that is Shia's favorite position.

Anyway, I'm getting a Last Crusade vibe from that picture. I think Crystal Skull will be most similar to Last Crusade in tone and atmosphere. I might be wrong.

Can't get much more emasculating than that picture.

Harrison Ford was on Jay Leno last night. They didn't even have a clip/trailer of the movie to show. Not a good sign

that is my concern

the indy films were great

why dilute those memories with a fat, old, broken down Ford.


at least with the Star Wars
they got new young actors

that made the films worth watching

imagine if they had an old fat Hans Solo (Ford) stinking them up

and yes, I do know the story line was at a different place so that would not happen.

They realize they could only make a couple of Star Treks with Shatner, before it would be a disaster.

This is just some whoring for a few bucks by people whose best days are behind them

but, in doing this, they will only cheapen their earlier good work.

Harrison Ford may be old and broken down but he sure ain't fat


I'm still super excited about it, and will go into the theater knowing full well that it may and probably will suck. But who cares? I'm going for the pure enjoyment Some folks are reading too much into it.

About Star Trek, Star Treks II and VI are extremely good and both deal with Kirk and crew getting old and coming to terms with it.

If it's done well, it can always succeed.

I just watched the Indiana Jones trilogy on the USA channel. I'm super excited about the Crystal Skull. I hope it doesn't suck, because I would feel embarassed for Harrison Ford if it does.

The Force is not strong with this one.


But I honestly think that Ford is perfectly capable of reprising the role and succeeding with it. It's a character that he is obviously familiar with and I feel that he will be able to jump right back into it and deliver the goods. He is Indiana Jones. Make no mistake about it.

I have a feeling that Ford and this movie will exceed all of our expectations.

I think there were reports this is close to Last Crusade in tone.
I would like a more human Indiana this time - Ford is older and so is he. It would be bad if it looked like "old" John McClane. And even if it's bad, the original movies still stand on their own.

Local TV is playing all three Indys each Friday this month as no. 4 is coming.
