There had better not be any more sequels, I don't car how great a movie is, at one point the amount of sequels is sad.  Three was good for Indy, four, no, it was a blatantly wide line in this case and they crossed it.  Don't get me wrong, I believe that this movie will actually be pretty good and I've heard good things, I just think that a movie shouldn't push it on the sequels no matter ho good they might be, unless it's good enough to be called a classic in fifty years.

Just got back from seeing it and I have to say that my opinion of it is generally favorable.  I've been a big fan of the original three since childhood and this one fits in pretty nicely.  I've always felt that Temple Of Doom was the worst of the original three and I might even rank this one higher than that.  It's not superb, it's not the sequel we have waited 19 years for but it's not too bad.

SPOILERS SPOILERS

In the end KOTCS is not as bad as you may expect, but it's also a far cry from the other Indiana movies. It's sort of decent, and way better than the legions of imitators you've seen over the years, but in the end the magic is not back, and you end up wondering if they just shouldn't have let Indy ride into the sunset.

WatchED CLOSE ENCOUNTERS again last night and was considering what Neville said about Speilberg loosing the majic he once had with films. Then I thought that this is what happens when you run out of idea's, then I thought he wouldn't want to spoil the greatness of CLOSE ENCOUNTERS by having Indy having a similiar encounter with aliens, then I was talking with my daughter about it and we figured it's more about archeology than meeting space aliens and in the end I guess that was what Speilberg was doing. Making this the ultimate archeology film that involve ancient astronauts. Archeology being the theme and not the alien encounter so much.

I don't think the problem here is lack of ideas, though. I think that Spielberg has matured, and has sort of forgotten how to make tight 100% entertainment films.

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. 
Aw, c'mon now.  HARRISON FORD is only 66...!   Wink BounceGiggle

FORD was born in 1942.  Last year when FORD's previous film, FIREWALL, came out, the USA Weekend magazine touted how FORD should be commended for choosing to work with actresses who were "more mature" and not so much younger than he.  Talk about spin...!  His costar was VIRGINIA MADSEN who was born in 1961.  You do the math.   Lookingup

I thought that with the subject matter and especially the direction they decided to take with this one, that they really made the best movie that they could in those circumstances.

I really enjoyed it though.

I just came back today from seeing IJATKOTCS and, surprisingly, enjoyed the heck out of it.  Just like old times, almost; you can't go home again, but at least I got to visit the same neighborhood.

And if you want me to get more in depth, please click away....

What about Indiana Jones and the Holy Prepuce?

It follows the trend of Indy looking for biblic artifacts.

Finally saw this today. After many scathing reviews I've heard on the radio and seen online, I was expecting it to be bad, but I really, really liked it. I think they made the best film that they could, given the passage of time. It might not have had that same epic sense of wonder, but I still thought it was very good.

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.
