I really love Last Crusade. I agree Sallah was wasted, but I thought Marcus' dimwittery was used to great effect.

To be honest, I barely can recall what purpose he played in the first movie. Did Marcus have a major part in the movie? He was less of a goofball, I think, but could he really be wasted in the third movie when he wasn't in much of the first?

I REALLY wanted to love the film but as a whole it is too unbearable for a fan of the first three movies. Because there were a number of scenes that were completely unesscesary and there was just too much CGI in the final act. D+

Thanks,
for calling it like it is.

I think the first couple of days it was out
all the devoted fans just talked themselves into believing it was better than it was.

You're right, he's not a big part of the first film, but you're kind of led to believe he's this fatherly figure to Indy and probably used to travel around the world like him during his younger days. With Indy's actual dad in this, I can understand why he's made into the comic relief. I'm probably talking out of my ass here.

Again, I still love Last Crusade, but not as much as I used to though. Raiders is the only one that's really held up with me from my childhood to now.

I must be in the minority of kinda hardcore Indy fans that think Crystal Skull wasn't completely terrible.

I'm with you. I don't know that I'd call myself a "hardcore" Indy fan. A big Indy fan, that's plenty for me. But I thought it was entertaining and not nearly as awful as you'd think by some accounts.

I miss Sallah. And Captain Katanga. Also, I miss Sallah a lot. Sallah, where are you? Do you miss me too?

I'm also kind of an Indy fan, and have watched all the movies up until now. Still didn't have the time to go see the new movie, but hopefully I'll be able soon. Is it really that bad in comparison to the older Indy movies? I hear so many different opinions, some say it's really worth seeing and others are just completely blah about it. Not that I'm not gonna go because of all those opinions, because I still want to see for myself, but I was just wondering, because so many tickets have been sold already, or was that just because of the Indymania that was startled again?

Some people thought it was far worse than the others and that it sucked ass.

Some people thought it wasn't as good as the others but was still an enjoyable time at the movies.

... that's about all you can say to sum up the opinions, I think.

Like I said before, I liked it better than Temple Of Doom and I think it fits right in with the other 3 films. It was just fun, which is what these movies are suppose to be.

I think we are all going to get to review another one in a few years. From what George Lucas has been saying in interviews I think its going to happen. I'm looking forward to it if it happens. I may be in the minority by looking at this thread.

If Shia LeWhatever is starring in it, I will very likely stay home.

I'd definitely be staying home.

This one holds up for me on a second viewing, too. Still hate all of the CG animals, alien at the end, wasting of Marion and other parts of the script, but it's still a great ride. Watching the sequels again before this really helped, It has its flaws, like the other sequels (well, sequel and prequel), but it's still fucking Indy.

NSW, we all miss Katanga and Sallah. I saw Heat, btw. It's got a GREAT ASS!

Everyone keeps saying that this movie was supposed to be fun? Wasn't it supposed to be good? It's neither, as it turns out, but still.

YLB, I fucking told you that you'd enjoy Pacino's overacting.
