God damn it I'm still scared to death by this movie but damned if I don't want to see it.

Same here. If they pull a Rocky Balboa and play to the fact that Indy is old now, I think it'll be great. Sadly, I don't think Harrison Ford wants to be old.

Where's Sean Patrick Flanery when you need him? I am looking forward to this movie though. I think I'm gonna go back and watch the old ones now.

Well it's no secret that this movie will take place during the late 1950's and that would make Indiana's respective age very close to Harrison's actual age. A Cold War-era romp could be pretty damn good.

I hear ya. I may mock the movie movie now, but I'm totally going to catch it.

Glad to hear they finally started filming, though. Weren't they ready, like, last year or something but Lucas got all whiny about the script and they had to rewrite the whole freaking thing?

I'm with you here, but my logical side tells me it's a dark time when George Lucas thinks a script is bad.

The "late 1950's" is the part that worries me. If history is any judge, a good Indiana Jones film absolutely requires Nazis.

Torgo

Phsst. It doesn't matter the setting, there is one constant in American cinema: Nazis always work.

No way, that should be a good sign. If Lucas doesn't like the script that might mean it actually has believable dialogue and a coherent plot.

I think what he meant was that its bad because, if I recall, Lucas forced them to scrap the whole thing and completely start over. Like, a whole other premise start over.

I can't substantiate this though and since I am apparently prone to making bogus assumptions (http://www.gamespite.net/talkingtime/showpost.php?p=8748&postcount=23), it should maybe be taken with a grain of salt.

Bottom line: If Nazis and John-Ryes Davies are involved, I can deal whatever they dish out.

I think.

Ugg, I stopped watching Dead Zone because they're not advancing the main storyline. It's not like Flanery's vital to every episode in the Dead Zone.

Lucas hated Frank Darabont's script, but Spielberg LOVED it. It involved aliens and UFOs, if I'm remembering correctly.

Here's a bit of Darabont talking about it. (http://www.slashfilm.com/2007/04/17/frank-darabont-says-indiana-jones-4-was-a-tremendous-disappointment/)

Is anyone really vital to it anymore save for Johnny? I stopped watching for mostly the same reason although I have the added reason of I dropped pretty much all TV.

Huh. Without knowing all the details, I actually might be able to understand Lucas not digging it. Aliens and ancient artifacts have already been throughly covered by Stargate.

Indiana Jones and Captain Jack O'Neill? I would totally watch that movie.

Unless its really freaking good. Which we all know it has no chance of being, but just in case...

You're not seeing the big picture here:

I think what he meant was that its bad because, if I recall, Lucas forced them to scrap the whole thing and completely start over. Like, a whole other premise start over.

Precisely, what really troubles me is that they probably got rid of a passable script in order to make one of his liking. Which means, as mr_bungle said, unbelievable dialogue and a disastrous plot.

The greatest bit in Constantine was watching Satan bounce him like he was a superball.

I think it was an Archangel that killed him in the movie.

Frank Darabont has a rather impressive writing portfolio. He adapted The Green Mile and the Shawshank Redemption, and he also wrote a number of episodes in the Young Indiana Jones series. At this point, I have more faith in Darabont's writing then Lucas's judgment.

Temple Of Doom is just fine thank you very much.

Never got the hate towards that movie, its the least of the Trilogy yeah, but its still really good.

Temple of Doom is a perfectly fine film.

"really" good? I might be able to see your side on just good, but "really" good? I can't get with that.

The hate extends largely from Indy's irritating sidekicks, particularly the girl.

Dude, there was a guy that could literally rip out your heart. 'nuff said.


...ok, yeah, it's definitely much weaker than the other two. So what? I still liked it ok. Bring aliens into Indiana Jones, however, and I start to worry.

Kate Capshaw screaming at everything though was really the best part, need more of that in movies.

Temple of Doom was fine as a dumb action movie. The problem is that the other two Indiana Jones films were clever action movies.
