As much as I hate watching The Phantom Menace and good portion of Clones, I've really gotta do an Saga Marathon someday.

Eh, moving on.
I don't disagree. I just hate the "Oh why doesn't this critic shut up until he directs this or that..blah blah blah" spiel I here so often when someone criticizes a beloved film or series. I'll be the first to admit admiration of Lucas' achievements in advancing modern cinema, and having seen American Graffiti (one of my favorites now) and THX-1138 I have a whole other level of respect for his directing talent. And no, obviously the Star Wars franchise isn't ruined, but just the same, why does one need to achieve the same amount as a director to be granted the right to express a radical negative opinion on it?

But this is an Indy 4 thread, and I'm still amazed how every discussion on this board somehow finds its way to talking about Star Wars prequels.

‘Indiana Jones’: The Verdict Is In From MTV News And It’s Not All Good

Published by Josh Horowitz on Monday, May 19, 2008 at 7:03 pm.


My friends, I have seen “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” and as much as I’d love to say “hold on to your potatoes,” I’m feeling a little blue today (check out what all the other critics are saying here). Keep in mind, I’m reserving my final judgment on this one until I see it a few more times but my first thoughts upon leaving the screening were nothing short of abject disapointment.

I had a good time. Watching Harrison roll around and jump from moving vehicle to moving vehicle was glorious at times. Marian Ravenwood’s smile can still light up a room. Hell, I even though Shia LaBeouf was the best Indy sidekick this side of Short Round.

BUT…and I’m afraid this is a truly all capital letter befitting BUT…this film doesn’t nearly compare with any of the previous three. It’s just not in the same universe. It’s a riff on Indy, as if a half-finished plot outline had been found by admirers of the original trilogy and done up in the best Spielberg-ian style they could muster. Musical cues by John Williams only call attention to the greatness of the previous works. Set pieces never soar. It’s a movie that feels rushed and padded all at the same time. Believe me, every word I write here kills me. Keep in mind, you’re reading the thoughts of a guy who still defends “The Phantom Menace.”

Why would you get drunk to watch a movie?

give the guy a break
him and his buddies are in their early 20s

this sounds about right
get a start at the movie, then hit a bar or club afterwards

and from what I've read, rum might add to the enjoyment of "this movie".

It's tradition, man. We've done it ever since we were sophomores in high school.

We each take a pint of rum and pour it into the cokes we buy at the concession stand. After that, we go to a bar and discuss the movie over a few brews. It's a time-honored tradition and a hell of a lotta fun. We only do it for the really big premieres, though.

Why is this a tradition, though? You need to be drunk for a movie? I don't get it. You can get trashed with your buddies any other time. Going to a bar after the movie, sure, whatever, but slipping rum into your soda during a film? I am just curious why that's something anyone would do.

Just because you need to drink your gin before posting does not mean everyone need follow suit.

I've never understood the phenomena of getting wasted at a concert either...

You pay all this money to go to the concert and then you pay a lot more money to drink so that you won't remember the show either on account of being too drunk or being in the beer tent for the whole show.

Why not just stay at home with a two-four and a CD?

Couldn't agree more. And, trust me, I am reluctant to agree with you.

Yeah I didn't exactly answer your question earlier.

We certainly don't need to be drunk for the movie.

The reason we originally started out doing it was for the thrill. A bunch of high school kids walking into a crowded movie theater with bottles of rum tucked in our jackets...I think we thought we were God's gift to teenage mischievousness. And then it ended up being fun. A way to add a little excitement to the whole movie-going experience. It was cool to walk outside after the show with a little buzz.

So to make a long story short I would say the main reason we do it is, purely and simply, because it is fun.
