Well it's not out yet but early reviews of the film seem to think it sucks. As a rule I make my own opinion, but it seems to me that a nearly 70 year old action hero is a little hard to believe. 

So IMAGE THAT ... a multi-million dollar over hyped movie that suck, why this just can't be.

Anywho here is the link to the story ...

Why does Hollyweird have to dig up all these aging action actor ... Diehard, Rambo, Rocky and Indiana Jones. Isn't getting about time for the Goverornator to come out of the state house? As it was said in another thread it seems they are out of ideas and are just regurgitating the same ol' crap.

I don't care how old he is, he's still Indy!!!!  But yeah, 70 year old action hero, not much sense.  I plan to see it though.

Yeah, I mean, it's Indiana Jones...how can you say you're movie lover if you don't want to see this in the theater?  Sure there'll be naysayers but it's Indiana Jones.

The critics seem to pan popcorn films but who knows.  I'm a bit worried about Lebouf who I generally don't like when it comes to acting.

Oh I'll go see it and I'll likely get the DVD and add it to my original trilogy box set. But I swear if he goes trapezing through the jungles or ancient runes with a walker I'm going to be p**sed.

I'm going to try to go see it with as open of a mind as possible and make up my own opinion.

Hey Ford looks a lot younger than he is (65), and is still doing a lot of his own stunts.


I would not put any stock in a review published by AICN from a first timer under any circumstances.

Hear, hear.  Plus, usually first-person accounts should be backed up by reputable sources, to say the least: and AICN is hardly that.

As far as my own pre-watching opine: this is a can't miss situation.  After all, who doesn't love the Indiana Jones saga?  After all, I was one who enjoyed these in the theater (Temple of Doom not so much, but oh well...) and will be one of those lining up with my son to watch the adventures one more time.

Even if the film does tank (which I seriously cannot possibly imagine happening), it will be a thrill to sit there, see the Paramount logo morph into whatever mountain theme Spielberg chooses it to do so with, and hear the first few strains of Indy's theme then see the man appear and get caught up in another whirlwind adventure. 

I'll withhold judgment with everyone else, but seriously, it'll be good to see Indy again.   TeddyR

I haven't seen any of the Indy flicks, actually.  Saw about 5 minutes or so when it was on tv and wasn't really interested. 

Was thinking about seeing it, if only because I like Shia LeBeouf.

George Lucas has said several times now that because of this movie has been so long coming, the anticipation is so high, that no matter what they did with film, they were going to get ripped to shreads because they didn't meet everyone's expectations.


By the way , I did read another review that rated this movie higher than Temple of Doom.                   So waiting to see the movie for one's self is definitely the way to go.

I think it's going to turn the Indy franchise on it's head.  I looks like Indy, instead of finding an artifact, has to bring one back to where it came from.  I think that'll be neat.

You need to go rent all three and watch them right now!   hot
Start at the beginning and watch them in order.  
Be advised that the second movie, "Temple of Doom" actually takes place before "Raiders" in the Indiana Jones timeline.

I was 7 years old when my parents took me to see Raiders of the Lost Ark and I remember the face melting scene at the end scaring the crap out of me.  I remember crying and my mom telling me that the movie was almost over.

All of the Indiana Jones films are top notch entertainment.  Any true movie lover needs to see each of them at least once.   Smile

As for Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, I'll wait to see it and form my own opinion about it.
George Lucas has stated that this new film feels "tonally' like Raiders and it looks it.
When I saw the trailer for the first time, I thought the exact same thing.

I've got very little interest in the movies, actually.  I like movies, but I'm not a big George Lucas or Harrison Ford fan, or a fan of the adventure type flicks.
