Indiana Jones & the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (5-28-08)

The Spoony One | May 25 2008 | more notation(s) | 

I just got back from watching Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, and I was so stunned that I had to babble incoherently about it for about twenty minutes. It’s unscripted, unplanned, and borderline senseless raving, but damn it, you need to hear it!

    I agree completely, but I’ll add my own beef.

    One, because it was a complete ripoff of the first movie as you said. Two, because it was trying to be epic and failed making it horrible as you said. Third, the cutsy crap and ridiculous nonsense like the refrigerator turned nuclear shelter. And Four, when Cate Blanchard died, I walked out of the theater because she was the only likable character in the film. That last part speaks volumes about how messed up the film was for me. It was a total deus ex machina Geroge Lucas cheapshot against the only capable character in the film. What happened to the old Indy when the bad girl is the most capable and adventurous person in the film?

    Great review. My complaint is that the movie wasn’t entertaining. I think that sums up the whole experience. It turned out to be exactly what the audience anticipated; a great, big FUCK YOU to all the fans.

    Noah, your reviews are gold. Bash the shit out of this piece of junk movie. Speilberg might as well just took a dump on my face, and that would be more entertaining. Keep em coming man! Great stuff!

    P.S. Don’t give a fuck about what people say on your Phantasmagoria reviews. My friends and I died laughing all the way through. Please do another FMV review, or some other piece of shit game. The AVGN is a pile of year old donkey puke compared to your reviews.

    I just dont know why oh why do george lucas keep doing movies….. he had a fluke with the first and only 3 good films he has ever, and I mean EVER, made. My good, he is starting to be a older version of uwe boll…. damn.

    The only reason it is entertaining is because steven spielberg know how to vut a movie so it seems entertaining…. heh wow, I have issues…

    I’m sorry but the feeling of shame in your voice is priceless.
    Kingdom of the Crystal skull as an Indiana Jones movie SUCKS FUCKING BALLS!
    If it was any other movie that wasn’t Indiana Jonest it would have been at least somewhat good.

    George Lucas is a good damn cyber faggot with a boner for special effects.
    The guy can’t write stories for shit actually and if you can name a single movie he has made after American Grafiti that hasn’t involved Star Wars or Harrison Ford (whom Lucas obviously has wet dreams about) I’ll donate an SNES game to you.

    Seriously, it was like sitting there watching the legacy of Indiana Jones go trough a shit grinder with the words “GEORGE LUCAS” stamped all the fuck over the exit hole where the diareah processed movie comes out.
    But the thing that pisses me off the most, even more than the god fucking CGI was that Spielberg let Lucas do all of this.

    I mean, for fucks sake Spielberg, if we can’t rely on you for good movies then who the fuck should we go to?

    Sorry bout that Spooney, hearing you rant got me started as well.
    Thats right, I blame you >:C

    The first 10 minutes were brutally boring, and that was a good indication of what the rest of the movie was going to be like. Sad.

    In all honesty, the villianess was the best part of this movie; it’s too bad she did something silly and got her brain broiled. So far as an Indy movie, no. Just no, does not compute, even with Harrison Ford in the role the movie came off as ridiculous and annoyed me when I considered prior installments in the series. It was more like… some weird fanfiction crossover of Indy meets X-Files: The Prequel.

    Terrible is that george lucas ahs returned to teh 3 orginal moveis before cruystal skull was realsied annd digitally enhacned the old movies with CGI efects (and yes bluray wersons of the mvoeis are only the digitally enhacned wersons)
    It was same awfullnes on the entier car scene as it looked awfully cheap and bland.

    Was like they trew their wacm tables in the air at ILM and said “fuck it”

    This entier movie smelled of fan fiction, and the steriotype greedy guy in the end felt so unorignal, it was soso in the mummy but here it felt out of palce as they become worsed then the movies that tried to reath to indyana jones glory.

    Appolegy for my crippeld english.

    Since I’ve never seen any other Indie movie before this one, I was genuinely entertained. I’ll admit it. I didn’t notice the flaws while I watched the movie. Once I saw this, they stood out glaringly, but at the time? I was entertained. That may be because this is my first Indiana Jones movie, but whatever. Also a note, the Crystal Skull evidently is a real life artifact, or at the least there is a real legend surrounding it, this wasn’t made in Lucas’ twisted, degrading mind…. not entirely at least.

    I’m sorry to ruin your day with more shit, Spoony, but there were two other things you didn’t mention that sucked about this movie. Well, three, if you’re willing to allow that bullshit scene with the kid FENCING with the Communist, formal style, while straddling two cars.

    1. The aliens were more asinine than even you indicated. They’d been waiting for years to get their heads back. They did. They mercilessly kill the woman. And the would’ve killed Indy too, because they left instantly, destroying everything around them. You’re welcome, assholes.

    2. This one fucking killed me. The natives that assaulted Indy when he trespassed in their temple. Wait. You’re telling me that they’ve been holed up inside those walls for DECADES, without food or drink, just waiting for some hapless trespasser to wander in, so they can jump out, fully functional, not starving at all, and attack with blowguns? No. No. Fuck you.

    What gets me about this film is…Indy didn’t have to be in it all. If he never even met with the Commies, nothing would have been different. Cate would still had her head exploded and the martians would’ve buggered off. The entire film was pointless.

  • Knify

    I agree, it should have been a lot better. The car chase was good though, and it’s not like the other movies ever made any attempts to be really realistic. But this one just doesn’t even try to restrain itself, and totally goes over the top. Did they have anyone proof-read it at all?

    The first few minutes set the standard – Indy survives a nuclear attack. WTF? Why not leave that out, it didn’t serve any purpose at all. And I guess nobody pointed out that there’s no metal in gunpowder, and even if there were, the way it flew towards the magnetic skull was just stupid. The skull also seems to be very randomly selective as to what it attracts.

    Also, what did the commies want? One moment they’re talking about some mind weapon, and the next they are looking for some ill-defined, unknown yet desirable “reward” that the aliens will give them if the skull is returned. What was the plan? And the commies were moronic of course, and totally useless. Did they manage to do anything right? Where did the alien go (where there more than one?), and why did he wait until the skull got stolen (and then returned) to go there? Why did the other professor suddenly get his wits back at the end? And how? It’s one thing that someone left subtle and difficult-to-decipher clues if they don’t want everybody to understand, but even when they MEET him, he still speaks in riddles. How convenient.

    It’s just a big mess. When it doesn’t rip off Raiders (truck chase, ending etc.) there are only half-assed attempts at making sense (monkeys, vine swinging, nuclear explosion, aliens, surviving waterfalls).

    But the character development is pretty neat, and some of the action scenes are OK, taken out of context. The plane ride with the red line on the map is still cool. How hard would it have been to make a good movie?

    Please, never, never never NEVER eat while you are making a video. It would have been funny as a plot device – that you were so upset that you hat to resort to comfort food – for a couple of seconds, but seeing as it is during the entire video.. well you were just eating and talking.

    As lame as the kingdom of the crystal skull.

    I agree with spoony wholehartedly.

    indy got southpark raped. just as star wars. bloody friggin hell. hollywood is out of ideas. thats why they’re relying on comics. think about it. anly good original hollywood movies are comicbooks. If they try somthing original, its usualy an old story in a new jacket. done before.
    i admit i did go and see indy. started of good. and took a parabolic dive after the first 20 minutes. after an hour and 15 minutes i couldnt take it anymore. and i just left. because i know what was going to happen.

    after seeing a bunch of spoilers on the internet, i felt i had to see it myself. and i felt sorry for harrison ford. as he stood there in the final scene, you saw him go “this is going to ruin me, mentaly and professionally”.

    What are we going to do about people like Spielberg and Lucas going back to our old (and great) movies and ruining them with things like this? As Spoony said: “Leave it ALONE.”

    Normally I would never recommend this, but I’m afraid the only solution I can think of is to drop something heavy on them from an upstairs window before they do something worse, though I struggle to think what THAT could be…

    What are we going to do about people like Spielberg and Lucas going back to our old (and great) movies and ruining them with things like this? As Spoony said: “Leave it ALONE.”

    I didn’t think it was TERRIBLE but it was still a bad movie. The effects were okay… but it did rely on the computer and shit too much. The only reason why the crazy russian lady’s head asploded was because her brain overheated from all the knowledge the aliens were giving her. I can’t believe you said nothing about the cheesy flying saucer that they used! Other then that i agree with everything you said. At least they can’t call temple of doom the “worst one in the trilogy” any more XD.

    you cannot bring a icon legend back like that keeping and targeting kids as your key demographic

    You’ll probably kill me now, but Temple of Doom is the only good indiana jones movie IMO. No stereotypic nazis (all foreigners are stereotypic in indiana movies) and fake accents.

    And the new one is based on the 50′s, so of course there’s aliens. Also “aliens met inkas, mayas etc” is common sci-fi fact. Still, the 4th sucks ass

    I liked Temple of Doom as well…dunno why people keep saying it’s crap. Crystal Skull was crap. D<
    So- it’s good to finally know that I wasn’t the only one who more or less felt the same about this movie. In the beginning, I attempted to defend KoCSkull from myself….justify it. Yeah…sure….that went well. Well-, I’ve come to terms with myself and yes…i agree..it sucks hard.
    And that whole part in the forest. Parallel roads. Cars. That whole bit- possibly the worst part of the whole thing.
    …and it was totally obvious that aliens were going to be involved. (and yet, I tried so hard to ignore it…)

    I didn’t see the movie but there are two things I want to clarify about some complaints some people have:

    First: not all metals are magnetic. It is perfectly possible that for example bullets are attracted by a magnetic object while gold pieces are not, or much less. Still it is impossible to shield of magnetic forces by for example a crate or something like that.

    Second: of all the places in your home, the fridge is probably the safest place to hide from radioactive radiation. Unless you happen to have a closed lead coffin in your home… The trunk of a car would also be a good idea, although it is not a well isolated as a fridge.

    BTW: I’m a physicist, I get paid to know this stuff :-).

    ocean_soul, if you are a physicist, how in the name of SIENCE can you belive it is possible to survive beeing in the center of a nuke blast???
    The radiation is the least of your concernes in that situation, the most pressing matter is the extreme heat that can melt lead, you know, like a fridge, and turn your body into burned ash and bones, followed by the extreme blastwave that pulverises your remains.

    That part of the movie is the single greatest insult to our intelligence I have ever seen.

    @mobtank
    That’s not what I said, I said you could hide from radiation .

    If your at ground zero of a nuclear blast your death. Simple as that. However, if your main concern is radiation (for example: you are not so close as to be fried, but you are at serious risk from short term fallout) it would be a good idea to hide in the fridge. Remember I didn’t see the movie, so I don’t know the exact circumstances.

    On a side note: who has a fridge made of lead anyway? Seems rather impractical to me.

    Can´t believe that no one mentions the part of the movie with the snake… the part where indy and marion are sinking into quicksand, and lebeouf has to find a way to save them, the only bloddy thing he could find in the jungle is a giant Snake, he then throws it out to marion and indy and reels them in. And ofcourse, as we all know, indy is afraid of snakes which creates a “comedic” moment. That scene is an insult… actually the entire movie is an insult, i think i hate basically every single thing about this movie. Getting angry just thinking about it xD

    OK, I agree that this movie is a major disappointment, but how can you say that it’s better than Temple of Doom?
    That movie destroyed most of what made the first film so good, replacing memorable characters and an interesting plot with the paradoxical addition of lame, annoying supporting characters and a storyline dark to the point of absurdity. I mean, it turned it into a joke! The dinner scene? Come on! How can you like that cutsey shit with the eyeballs and monkey brains in the soup!
    And the ridiculous cheeseball love scene between Indy and the girl after they’ve only known each other for, like, two days?
    I guess they figured they had too weighty a main story, so they added a bunch of the opposite for comic relief. In my book, it doesn’t count as “relief” if half the movie is that way.
    Don’t get me wrong, Crystal Skull sucks, but don’t try to say it’s worse than ToD.

  • Sockoman

    yeah, this movie wasnt that great. I can admit that. But… I liked it. Really I did. You hit the nail on the head, specifically how we are all sheep when it comes to movie licenses. We want to see stuff like this. I love the all the indy films, and while this wont be beating any of the original movies, It’s still passable. I never really noticed the whole rippoff notion of Raiders, but… I can see it now, and while it cheapens the movie, its not enough to make me ashamed that I owned it… for cheap.

    I think the issue that drives most people with webcams batty over this movie, and Transformers, for that matter, is that its not the same as you remember. Which, its true, it isn’t the same. But, it never really can be the same as it used to be. Times do change, and as technology gets better, most directors will go with the green screen rather than acctually be there for the moment, which is really dissapointing about most of todays movies. What bothers me about green screen is more the outlandish shit the expect us to buy(like the nuke thing for example) But, for me, as a viewer, as a fan for that matter, It’s really hard for even guys like Micheal Bay to screw up my childhood icons. Uwe Boll can do it, sure, and I’m not defending Bay, I hate most of his movies, and how hes more or less the remake guy in Hollywood, but, speaking again, as a fan, I loved Transformers, I can’t wait to see the new one. Call me a sheep if you want to, but I just have trouble really hating films. Espcially stuff like Star Wars, The indy saga, and various other nostalgia from my childhood.

    The way I deal with it is I know that basically what I loved as a kid, was loved just as much by a whole ton of people. And everyone wants to have their hands into making the next portion of a saga, to pass along somthing to the next generation of fans. Trouble being, everyone has a different idea for doing that. Ghostbusters is a prime example, if they acctually make the 3rd movie I’m hearing so much about. Bottom line, It’s ok to hate this movie. And speaking for those of us that liked it, we understand why you hate it. But, go easy on us for liking it.

    Now, if you meet someone that likes a Uwe Boll movie, feel free to bash him into the dirt :P

Ghostbusters is a prime example, if they acctually make the 3rd movie I’m hearing so much about. Bottom line, It’s ok to hate this movie. And speaking for those of us that liked it, we understand why you hate it. But, go easy on us for liking it.

    Now, if you meet someone that likes a Uwe Boll movie, feel free to bash him into the dirt :P

    Agree on all points with the Sir Spoony. Add to that if the almighty were to allow a common Kenmore to not get vaporized, the velocity that thing flew at, would probably have turned Indy to paste. Additionally, what was with the insane look on Marian’s face while she drove the freaking car off a cliff that just happened to be perfectly caught by a tree. She apparely also has a good supply of happy pills.

    I agree with KratosWrite, the fridge part might as well made the common sense area of my brain explode 20 times. How the hell does a fridge survive a fucking nuclear blast?! A nuke destroys everything in the area and yet a common fridge is able to survive it? Thats like saying you can use an umbrella to shield yourself against the nuke. Also if a fridge truly could keep him alive from a NUKE, he should have broken pretty much every bone in his body from the distance the fridge flew. And thanks to the average intelligence of the U.S, people will actually believe that fridges can survive nukes. And i completely agree with you on how horrible this movie and the story is. once i learned there was aliens in the movie i did not want to go see it but i was forced to go along with family. The movie could have done without Shia labeouf . It could have better without him. Indiana’s love interest was as useful as The book full of useless information. ANYWAYS thanks for your review ill be watching/reading more.

    everyone here fails to see the movie as they saw the original movies when they came out. they’re not supposed to be original, they’re not supposed to have amazing plots, and it’s not supposed to be believable. you’re supposed to watch it, say that’s badass, and move on. indiana jones was never a thought-provoking series, all the people who think they are critics (not spoony, the average citizen) are trying to force it to become one.

    and i am sick and fucking tired of the nuked fridge argument. in a series that had skeletons, people ripping out hearts, cursed cups, i mean indy fucking jumps out of a helicopter using an inflatable raft, lands in water, goes down a waterfall, and survives. after everyone has seen all that, people NOW decide that the movies can’t be fake? if this movie had been released 10-15 years ago, people would have loved it, but nowadays, people refuse to just watch a movie, and enjoy it, they have to dissect it until it’s original form is unrecognizable.
    does the term “suspension of disbelief” mean ANYTHING anymore?

    You certainly seem like a broken man in this video. I didn’t think it was a horrible movie, but you are 100% correct about it being terrible compared to the others. Maybe it would have had a chance if it were a stand alone movie, without the previous films. But all in all, a bad Indiana Jones movie.

    I didn’t hate it as much as you did, but I agree it certainly wasn’t good. Honestly, the part that bugged me the most was the bad CG jungle scenes. They were not only really bad, but they REALLY pulled you out of the Indiana Jones feel. In Last Crusade they at least used actual vehicles and stuff that’s vaguely somewhat plausible. Giant forest-chopping vehicles and Shia swinging on vines Tarzan style just tears you out of the story. What little story there was.

    Holy shit… you’re right. I can’t remember any of the music from Crystal Skull. And I’m a classically trained musician. I played several renditions of various Indiana Jones soundtracks in various orchestras. I toyed with video game design when I was younger solely as an excuse to write soundtracks myself. And one of the first soundtracks I ever wrote was for a silly 2d sidescroller I made spoofing Indiana Jones, and so I studied the John Williams soundtracks for several months to get a feel for how best to spoof them. And I can’t remember a god damn thing from the Crystal Skull soundtrack.

    On the flipside, though. Mmm. Cate Blanchett in tight clothes. :P

HE FLYS THROUGH THE AIR IN A LEAD COFFIN (fridges of the time where some times referred to this because they locked on the OUTSIDE and where air tight!) hits the ground (while tumbling ende over end) doing what seems to be 60 an hour! and gets out not only unharmed but walks just fine… BBBBUUULLL SSSSHHHIIITTT, why did you forget that part? i mean realism i can kinda ignore but this? this i wont

    Postal was better then this movie. (this is ignoring the fact that my friends have played the hell out of the postal games and say its amazingly accurate, but still not only did he out butt fuck Michel Bay but he out butt fucked Uwe Bell)

    I saw the 3 movies, and i gotta say WTF was this movie. I agree, this movie is HORRIBLE. The fridge scene, the jungle, hell most of the fucking movie is garbage and made no sence. Even i was confused on how many skulls were in the damn movie. Sure the Temple of Doom had the life raft scene but at least the movie was actually good. George Lucas I agree wiped his ass with it. When I seen this movie, i was like WTF, ALIENS DO NOT BELONG IN AN INDIANA JONES MOVIE. I mean god, why in this movie. Dont Lucas got some other movie to go ruin. Oh crap I forgot. Speilburg may be doing the Halo movie. As much as i hate Halo, i wouldent doubt that Lucas will get his hands on it with him there.

    Also, i do agree with the special effects. CGI and Green screens are a great tool, but the main problem with them is that they are generally used too much in movies and not used well.

    I watched all 4 movies today in a marathon. And while serveral things about crystal skull is retarded (which you all pointed out) I still prefer it over Temple of Doom. Which would be an awesome movie and actually my favorite if not for Capshaw’s constant screaming and her overall character design. Uhhhh, shiny. Short round (George Lucas’ standard step one: put a kid into the movie, step two ???, step three: profit! routine) is a delight compared to this.

    That pretty much describes Mothership Zeta on Fallout 3 lol.

    I also agree that this film is utter bullshit. George Lucas is killing everything awesome he ever made, I bet £100 that he’ll remake Harold the Duck and it’ll be better remake than both that CGI PoS Clone Wars movie and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. The worst thing is his daughter will eventually take over for him and she’s an even bigger dumb fuck.

    temple of doom was by far the worst of the trilogy. still indiana jones of course and thus awesome (and i wouldnt consider this last one to be an indiana jones film).
    as a setting i would have rather liked the tunguska incident…though they might have turned that into some alien story as well…
    on the other hand, there are some theories about antimatter and all sorts of other interesting explanations…
    well, just my 2 cents

    well, just my 2 cents

    temple of doom was by far the worst of the trilogy. still indiana jones of course and thus awesome (and i wouldnt consider this last one to be an indiana jones film).

    I have to say that I was really dissapointed as well. Not to the extend stated in the video review by spoony, but sufficiently enough. I did think that they managed to transfer Indy over into the 50′s nicely, but it pretty much ended there. Aliens…are you kidding me? That truly was a bad decision, and an unneccesary one on top of that. George Lucas really has managed to destroy every memorable icon he created in the past. I never really was the biggest fan of Indiana Jones myself – although I did like it – but what he did to Star Wars really hurt. Episodes I to III made me want to drown him in a lake full of Bantha droppings, but what really freaked me out the most was what he did to the digitally “enhanced” original movies, namely Episodes IV to VI. At least Episode I had Liam Neeson and great light saber duels in it, which made them somewhat enjoyable.
    But overloading the original Star Wars episodes with comic relief that more than just bordered on stupidity, made you wonder if Goerge Lucas was on a “medical Marijuana” theraphy while deciding on that. The probably worst of all was the bar scene in Episode IV where Han Solo encounters the bounty hunter and shoots him through the table. I loved that scene in the original. But for whatever reason Mr. Lucas decided that he couldn’t have one of his main heroes come across like a bad guy by shooting first (although I think that was really badass), and decided to give Han a justification by having the bounty hunter shoot first…and miss him from a distance less than one foot and the gun already pointed at Solo’s head. That just ruined it for me.
    George Lucas shoudn’t be allowed to direct anything else but the Teletubbies anymore. At least he would deal with his newly chosen target audience and it would be a challange even for him to make THAT any worse…although he may succeed.

    ok, ive realised im commenting everywhere, not good after a night on the piss . .( getting drunk to the american readers who have over the past brought familiar british sayings into question rather than what i said ). Let me say i love the site and i have wasted hours watching your videos, its a great site, you have good idea going, keep it up its very entertaining. Anyway, my pissed up rant, and im really reading back here to make sure i make sense so bare with me. The biggest problem i have is that i know its all a joke and even if you really believe the things you saying 100% then i think entertainment is wasted on you. Ive tried to avoid looking at the reviews which i actually liked but as i am bored at times like this after a night out i watch it and infuriate myself. Doom, TF2:ROTF, This and a few others i just cant recall were geat because why? Erm. . . because we are too old. Im 30 this year and all the games you have slated, between you and the nerd, i used to love. Why? Because i had an imagination and back then even if it was incomlete . .it didnt matter it was a game and i played the fuck out of it. No fucking pixelated game would beat me and they didnt. I remember getting ET for my atari . . yes i got it around launch and thought it was a fucking challenge. Put yourself in my shoes. About 5 years old. You hadnt seen ANYTHING LIKE this before. It was the shit, i was a lucky boy to have parents that bought new shit and werent like, oooh no sex before marriage, you cant watch that you are too young . . i was a well behaved, entergetic and innovative kid which really got sucked in to the entertainment around me at the time, i believed it, i loved it and i felt the magic. See, i think im pretty teriffic as i can go into any situation and adapt very quickly and get full benefit. Just like now when i watch a fllck what every critic in the world says is bad, well before it started i turned on that kid mind switch labelled . .clearly . . .at the back of my head and got full 100% enjoyment out of it. Let me finish with one thing, if your over 22 and reviewing any kind of entertainment feature, you are past it. The cinical world of media, advertising and corporate shite has fucked you over forever and spoiled any kind of magic left in your body. We are all too quick to point out the flaws of movies. . of course, cos if the entertainment world was bound totally by these rules ie games and films then we wouldnt have any . . . erm . . .oh thats right ENTERTAINMENT. All im going to say is who is going to give a fuck, now, in one year, 10 years that any of us watched these films and played these games? Anyway crysytal skull. I thought it was alright. My take on it was that it tried to recreate the 60′s theme but still be in the 80′s . . if you know what i mean. God i think people just dont have any imagination anymore and i blame windows and computers. Yes. i blame them becuase with each iteration they try to dumb it down EVEN more. Its almost like this has cottoned on to the video entertainment industry. We have to point EVERYTHING out in kiddie steps or we are going to loose the inbred, hick, motherfucking, 20 rate iq, drool slobbering, drop out bastard population. By all rights i should be asleep by n ……..

    I thought it was good, an enjoyable watch that contained alot of what we enjoyed about previous Indy films. It wasn’t as good as the originals, with the exception of the Temple of Doom perhaps, but it was a good movie; the only part that made me half-cringe was the part with Indy Jr. swinging on vines in the jungle – that WAS a step too far.

    Erm, and just a point: “LAST” in ‘The Last Crusade’ is not a reference to Indiana Jones as much as it is to the story of the movie. The Crusades were all about occupying Jerusalem and, supposedly, the search for the Holy Grail; since the movie’s plot was about searching for the Holy Grail it was a Crusade, and since the Holy Grail is lost at the end of the movie it’s therefore the LAST Crusade.

    After getting home from watching this movie, for no apparent reason, I passed out right in my driveway, hitting my head and getting a minor concussion, resulting in short term memory loss and my forgetting pretty much everything I saw.

    Seriously, I’m not making this up; this movie sucks so bad God went out of his way to make me forget it. Probably ‘cuz Spielberg didn’t let him appear in this one like with Raiders and Last Crusade, which would explain Temple of Doom, now that I think about it…

    I presume you meant John Hurt?
    Still, you’re very right. Although the movie is watchable, it’s definintely not the Indy we all grew up with. I have to say, I feel kinda sorry for Shia LeBeouf. People keep casting him in roles where he’s going to get enormous hate from people.

    Ok not even joking when i say this. But I could write a significantly better Indiana Jones script in one day. Not a word of a lie, it would be easy. Im not even good at writing but i could make something better then this piece of dog crap that they call a movie. Someone needs to dress up in a Jar Jar Binks costume and beat George Lucas senseless, then tie him up and make him watch this disaster piece non stop until he manages to train his laughing gophers to tear his eyes out.

    Holy shit!!! I completely agree with you on every aspect you ranted on about this movie!! I was so abhorred by this bucket of butt waste that I started coming up with my own idea for a fourth Indy film. I’m seriously thinking of shipping the treatment to both Spielberg and Lucas and tell them, this is how it should’ve been done!!! I had three friends of mine, who are HUGE Indy fans, read it, and say that my version is a lot better than this abomination! (My version was titled “Indiana Jones and the Secret of the Sphinx” and involved a secret, hidden treasure long buried underneath the Great Sphinx. Marion would be dead and a young man accompanies Indy, who is as you might have guessed, his son. However, the revelation is done in a more subtle manner and bonding between the two is a strong point, much like that between Indy and his dad in LAST CRUSADE. Also, my version may have the KGB wanting to get their hands on the gold. I’ve written a draft with that in it, but am not sure about keeing it in. *All this is copyrighted thus far.*) I get baffled every time I read someone saying something positive about it. I did a double take when I picked up my copy of Leonard Maltin’s 2009 Movie Guide and saw that one of the most prestigious critics IN THE WORLD gave it 3 1/2 STARS!! WTF?!?!?!

    I started getting bummed there for a second when you shut it off and it went to the “No Signal bars” or whatever the hell they’re called. I was like, ‘What about the “radiation fridge incident?”‘ Then you came back on and answered that question for me. That is, by far, one of the dumbest moments not only in Indiana Jones history, but in film history! One big reason this film has aliens in it is partly because the script was written by David Koepp, who wrote Spielberg’s version of WAR OF THE WORLDS! Something should seriously happen. Make a better sequel or remake it. Either way, keep Shia LeBeouf out of it!! His character was so damn annoying!!

    Another point I should bring up…what’s with all the 1950s references? Elvis’ “Hound Dog” playing as a group of teenagers drag race a military soldier (another moronic scene); Shia’s entrance (taken from Marlon Brando’s THE WILD ONE); and others I can’t think of at the moment. The Cold War references are fine because those are real topics that were encountered in the ’50s, but all the other references felt heavy-handed and kinda thrust into the audiences’ faces. Did you see any of that in the three previous films? No.

    This movie is rubbish.

    What is everyone talkin’ bout? There are only 3 Indy films. No matter what anyone says, there are only 3 Indy films, and if George Lucas DID make a 4th film, he better not FUCK it up. Like aliens, wouldn’t it be hilarious if an INDY film had ALIENS? That’d be the worse movie ever.

    Take away the aliens, make it about a magnetic artifact of the natives, the ones they fight, origin, make the relations in the film more subtle add a better musical score, make the climax more original and the movie COULD have been okay. But no. There are aliens, the skull has nothing to do with the climax, its just a key to open a door. The relations are so obvious its an insult to my intelligence and the climax has been done to the syllable, and done better.

    Its fine to like this movie I guess. But I really didn’t.

    Can I borrow your nostalgia blinders? Mine got scratched. It was an Indiana Jones adventure full of larger than life, crazy shit. Just like the others and just liked I’d hoped for for years, and especially like Temple Of Doom, which you defend. By the way, many of your issues can be fixed by simply watching again and paying attention. It was an adventure story modeled after the 1950′s B movie cinema, and this film buff wouldn’t have had it any other way.

    I enjoyed it. Nowhere near as excellent as Raiders of the Lost Ark, but on about the same level as Temple of Doom and Last Crusade which is still a cut above most movies. It’s the same old popcorn munching fun, this time with a 1950′s theme. And frankly, I can live with the 50′s themes such as martians and commies. Not as cool as the Ark and the Nazis, but it still works on its own level.

  • Q

    No, I think you’re full of shit. I feel like your definitely full of shit.

    The Indiana Jones series never had any concern for continuity and was always a kind of side spoof to the 40′s serials. Now, the latest is more of a spoof to their 50′s counterparts, which was of course more centric on scifi.

    The only true fault I feel with the film is that it’s now all digital and thus losing its nostalgia factor, which was probably what made the Star Wars prequel and special edition worst, most people probably didn’t get the difference and probably blamed it on something else.

    Also, it’s bad to apply physics to an Indiana Jones film, because if you push pass the nostalgia (ie. George Lucas’s Worst Enemy) you’ll discover that all the movies breach logic to an unreasonable amount. It was just the the fact that you were young when you saw it and it didn’t bother you as much because you were young.

    The only true fault I feel with the film is that it’s now all digital and thus losing its nostalgia factor, which was probably what made the Star Wars prequel and special edition worst, most people probably didn’t get the difference and probably blamed it on something else.

    Also, it’s bad to apply physics to an Indiana Jones film, because if you push pass the nostalgia (ie. George Lucas’s Worst Enemy) you’ll discover that all the movies breach logic to an unreasonable amount. It was just the the fact that you were young when you saw it and it didn’t bother you as much because you were young.

    I can’t speak for the series I only ever saw Temple of Doom, and the ending of Raiders of the lost Ark, but I will say this, I can’t say I enjoyed it, while it flowed, it was boring , the action felt rote and overly cliched and Shia LeBouff (is that spelt correctly), the only part I enjoyed was the ants eating people because there is hope there, eat the whiny teenager, EAT HIM!!!!

    I do agree with your review but not to such an extreme, probably because it isn’t my childhood icon being destroyed, but I can say, I feel for you and the poor bastards who recieve my beatings as I slap the stupid out of them. (look out George Lucas, Uwe Boll, Paris Hilton, Stephanie Myer and Brittany Spears)

    PS: I wil eat the people who made a Gears of War sequel, good game but it wasn’t needed, stop making FPS’s and make a bloody platformer like Golden Axe, or Castlevania Bloodlines, they kicked ass

    Yea, I was pretty dissapointed with this film. I felt like Indy was stuck in a film he didn’t want to be in. The worst part is that stephen Spielberg could have prevented the film from being made. He was against the whole idea and plot of the 4th film, but because George Lucas threw such a little bitch fit Stephen gave in. AND now their making a 5th one. GAWD. As you said first George tottally destroys Star Wars and now he’s desided to MURDERIZE (Yes, I realize it’s not a word) Indy. NOT COOL.

    Wow… yeah, I guess I do not need to see it. I have been looking into some more videos to watch since I have basically seen about nothing as far as movies.

    I admit I was curious, and I am getting more into videos. Even got myself the original three since it put the series on my radar, though I guess luckily the fourth was not to be found at that time, so I only got the original three of the franchise.

    Just hearing what you had to say about it, there is no question in my mind, they probably just said “action movie!” and ran on that abstract with no direction. What reason would they have for any of that stuff besides that they think it is cool and awesome that he survives a nuclear blast in a fridge? It is the crazy action hero endurance taken to the Nth unrealistic and stupid as all hell degree.

    What worries me more is that this is a running trend with the popular franchises he established. This is probably not the last video that will be released to great popularity, yet will be of the same caliber as his Star Wars and Indiana Jones sequels.

  • ImpudentInfidel

    I thought it was kind of meh. There were some nice nods to the paranormal nonsense as was popular at the time this was set. I dispute that it represents a genre shift, it's just modern myths that turn out to be true instead of old ones.
    They did point out that the skull wasn't actually magnetic, since it attracts gold and the kid points out gold isn't magnetic at all. The movie is incoherent nonsense, but so were the first three and no-one holds it against them.

  • chinamansg1

    For what it's worth, this script was penned by David Koepp, the same dude who wrote forgettable screenplays for “War of the Worlds”, “Zathura: A Space Adventure”, “Panic Room”, “Angels and Demons”, “Mission: Impossible” (which was actually a pretty good, albeit predictable, movie), etc, etc, etc…

    He did also write “Spiderman”, but I think the director of that one saved it more than the written word. Original Indiana Jones was written by Lawrence Kasdan, who wrote “Return of the Jedi” and “Empire Strikes Back”.

    I sincerely thought you were going to say “Mutt Williams and the Shrine of the Silver Monkey”. An hour and a half of watching him try and figure out how to put together the Silver Monkey while Kirk Fogg yells at him to turn the damned monkey the right way around. (The ending of the movie would be capped by Mutt finally getting the two lower pieces, reaching for the head to jam it down, and then knocking it off the wall and down to the ground floor.)

    Trully, i feared that you'll not mention the refrigerator scene. Fuck this scene ! The film will be really much better (well… Better is a big word) if this scene was cutted off.

    I can tell my first time with this movie : i was watching the beginning, thinking it was an average movie (don't misunderstand me, i still prefer the three first Indiana Jones' movies), but a little annoying. Then, IT (i call the Nuke scene 'IT') destroyed everything. I was with my family, so i didn't really screamed but i was about to explode ! Bullshit, bullshit ! Totally nonsense, ridiculous and below the deepest pit of the worst movie scene ever made ! So, all the rest of the movies, i was only watching Indiana Jones with the bitter taste of Brain rapping, so OF course this movie can't be good.
    You didn't mentioned that the frige wasn't even deformed by the explosion, the door was easy to open, Indie got out of it not even sick after those air rollings in the fridge. You didn't bitch enough about this scene, really…

    Anyway, i watched the rest of the movie, still thinking about that non-sense scene and of course the movie IS bad because your mind is still stunned. The movie CAN'T be good with that sequence.
    And when you saw it once, you'll never forget it believe me.

    Well, since i always try to see the best in the movies i 'enjoyed' some scenes like the ant trying their best to eat everything (still bullshit, but a lot more plausible than 'IT'… Fucking Nuke scene !). Or some of the action fighting in the jungle (well… i admit that two parallel path in the Jungle is awfully bullshit, but the action there is quite good), and that is all i can remember that i thought it was good.

    Well, i really agree with your saying about your childhood idol being destroyed, and i'll only say one thing :

    'Indiana 4, A Puzzle Of PAIN !'

  • MissSorceress

    To all you morons who think that the second Indy was crap and the fourth gold, I say: You guys are total and complete fucking idiots!!! The second was awesome, and I knew the fourth was a goner when they had the guts to say the word aliens. This is Indiana fucking Jones!! He found the HOLY GRAIL and fought NAZIES! He finds artifacts that people speculate over whether it exists or not, and he's as smooth as James Bond. C'mon people, Indy just doesn't do ALIENS!!

  • The_Hobo

    I agree with most of your arguments, but I never got why people have such a problem with the aliens. This is a “real” legend which ancient people of south america belived in.
    Crystal skulls have actually been found and no one knows how they were made, according to physics they are not possible to make. I don't belive in aliens and think the entire legend is ludicrous, but I don't belive in God either and therefore I find the ending of Raiders or Crusade just as ludicrous. I am still a huge fan of the original trilogy (including Temple of Doom) because I am willing to suspend my disbelief. However I didn't like this movie and mostly agree with you, It didn't need to be made. I just think its a bit unfair to say that a legend is stupid because its from another culture than yours.

  • dennett316

    He didn't say the legend itself was stupid, just that it shouldn't have been in an Indiana Jones movie. I don't think of aliens when I think of Indiana Jones, I think religious artefacts, evil cults and Nazi's…..what was wrong with doing that again? Atlantis would have been perfect, anything but aliens. I was entertained to an extent, but unfortunately the little crap like the greaser monkeys and the prairie dogs just really draws you right out of the movie.

  • Ruiner

    Blaming the Crystal Skulls' failure on the refrigerator scene is what I would call a double standard. The goofy aspects of the series helped make them unique, and set them apart from average adventure fare. If you call the refrigerator scene unrealistic how could you look past the ridiculous aspects of the originals? It wasn't a single thing that made Kingdom of the Crystal Skull bad, it was a combination of many terrible decisions.

  • Iaro

    Ok, the only bad thing about the 2nd one was Kate Capshaw, IMHO. But the entire movie was such a step above Crystal Skull…

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Eric-Mc/100000152293904 Eric Mc

    I feel sad since I read there was an alernate script for Indy 4. It was also called the Crystal Skull and it was meant to be shot in 1994. It starts at the end of WW2 and Indy was in Berlin trying to escape with Spear of Destiny while the allies were fire bombing the city.
    After that awesomeness Indy spends the next few months in London recovering and the war is over, but OSI, MI5, and the KGB say that there is problem. The SS Officer that Indy stole the Spear from escaped to South America and he is after something. Indy is the only person who has successfully tracked and beat that guy so they need him to go to South America. Indy says F to that they war is over, he's going back home but the OSI says that if doesn't Marin will be imprisoned as a Japanese spy. Indy asks why, they says things are still tense in Europe and they don't want the SS Officer to find some Icon and return to Germany to start a rebellion or something against the allies. They also say they can make Marin seem like Japanese spy because she escape with some refugees from Japanese forces after Pearl Harbor.

    Indy goes to South America and find that the Officer named Kriger is looking for the Crystal Skull. The legend of this skull that the Indian Nation would give it as gift of peace to their enemies and with in a few months their people would fall sick and die. Then they would march in or they place the Skull near an enemy cities water source and the same effect.

    Indy and [insert new South American friend ie a Latin Actor this time] eventually go deep in the jungle and after Indy and the friend pasts some insane tests. They are told what Krieger find out by capturing and torturing the tribe priest. That the wield of the Crystal died out. The Skull could kill many enemies out side of its temple and with it, it could heat their enitre city safely. But the curse of the Skull was that children became rarer and rarer to the Bears of the Skull the few that were born bore the mark of the Skull and soon died.

    After the Bears of the Skull nation died out, the city was forbidden and forgotten except to a few shamans. But the City of Skull bearers was also known by another name. The City of El Dorado. When Indy gets to the city they discover a golden city. But after examining the walls Indy finds the city is coated in fools gold, that covers some dark gray stone. Indy fights his way through traps and Nazi's to reach the Temple of the Skull. But the Nazi's in order to open the Temple set something in motion. The great gears and pulleys are moving under the city and the city seems to be reconfiguring itself. At the Temple of the Skull they meet up with Krieger, Indy even asks Krieger whats the point the war is over, Kriger says revenge, for the City of Gold is actually made of lead and the Skull is not magical. It the largest chunk of Uranium on earth. The tribe used atomic radiation as a weapon against their primitive foes. But the radiation and perhaps the lead too made them sterile and their few children deformed. But the Skull and with the bombs he brought with him, he and his men will go to New York and wipe it off the map, to make Indy's people know what his has suffered.

    At that moment Soviet soldiers appear, they say they have been following Indy and knew all along what Krieger was after. Indy is tied up as the KGB officer and the SS officer fight over the Skull. Their men stay back, but Indy starts talking two Sargent of both groups. He tells them that there is warning written on the walls of the Temple and he can read it. It says the Skull Bears knew they had sinned in using its power and so in their last days they remade their city to bury the Skull forever. The two Sargent see the madness of their officers and let Indy go, then they all flee the city as it starts sealing its self and burying its self down a massive sink hole.

    Start epic escape number two and it ends with KGB and Nazi fighting in the seal temple as the Skull starts to glow, cut to the Latin friend of Indy who tells him that wasn't the only thing the walls said. Indy says he knows but the rest didn't make sense. About a Star being crashing to Earth and the Tribe placing its body and boat in the temple, then using its Skull as weapon.

    At that moment the city disappears forever, a brilliant light shots out from the Temple of the Skull into the night sky for a few seconds then stops.

    I was wondering if you were going to mention that refrigerator. Who thought that would be at all believable? I just imagine some writer somewhere saying, “Hey, I know!! Let's have Indy survive an atomic blast in a fridge!” Whoever thought that was a good idea needs to just go away and die.

  • snake219

    For all those people out there who look at the fridge scene and stick up for it by claiming that there were several times in which Indy cheated death ridiculously, that is just a stupid justification. The difference between those moments in the original films and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is that Indy would have had more of a chance of surviving those moments (like falling off a cliff in a tank) than a nuclear explosion. I accepted scenes like the tank falling off the cliff in the Last Crusade, I accepted the rail cart making that leap across the gap in Temple of Doom, those scenes were stupendous but that was what was so awesome about them. The nuclear explosion was just a step to far. It was stupendous but it was so stupendous that it was just bad. It was like something out of Looney Tunes.
    As for the rest of the film, there was nothing memorable about it. After watching it and coming out of the cinema I remembered literally nothing about it, the characters, the music, the story, nothing. You know what? Just to make sure, I went to watch it a second time! Still after coming out of the cinema I remembered nothing. To sum up, the film was easily forgettable and I hope they don't mess it up further by making a 5th Indy film. Makes me shudder.

    This movie was, indeed, adequate. It was too OK to be good or bad.

    Also, Temple of Doom is, like you said, is great. No Last Crusade or Raiders, but great.

    I must say that I liked this movie way more than the Temple of Doom, which I really, really hated. I also hated Shia Labuttfuck, but he is nothing compared to those fucking child-sidekicks in Temple of Doom. I liked the fridge scene, mainly because it is so over the top-ridicilous and face Indiana makes after getting out of the fridge is brilliant (I survived THAT!?).

    I had mixed feelings about this movie.
    I freaking LOVE Indiana Jones and I was so excited to see Indy at the big screen.
    But there are alot of bad and horrible things in this movie, but it’s Indiana Jones!
    I’ve always been a little naive at some brand’s, if theres something that I loved as a child and still do.
    People at Hollywood or what ever, can like, take a shit, film it for 2 hours, stamp “Indiana Jones” on the film and I would go see it and partly like it.
    But I found the movie entertaining and would watch it again, just see Harrison Ford as Indy.

    Cut the crap about the fridge…It was a spoof of the stupidity of the fifties.There was actually an instruction to hide in the fridge in case of nuclear attack because it had lead. It was complete stupidity but was true…Indiana did this and survived because he is Indiana Jones.I mean he did similar things before that did not make any sense to survive either. It was funny because this was actually a real life instruction back then. And the scene with the explosion in the background was beautiful!

    Stop being so critical.It was not as good as the old trilogy.It was by far worst. But it was still entertaining.

  • Anonymous

    Entertaining my tail! It was about as entertaining as grinding levels in a Pokemon game! It was something to do, it loosely kept one’s attention, but it was by no means entertaining. In a good movie, when the credits start rolling and the lights come back on, you have a feeling of satisfaction at the very least, and don’t even think about if it was worth the time and money to see. After this movie, when the credits roll, the only thoughts are, “It’s over. …alright, I’m going to go home and play Halo.” It left no impression, it left no satisfaction, it left no sense of wonder; it was a blur of color and sound that’s over an hour long. If you think that Shia getting hit in the groin repeatedly is funny, I either have to commend you for hating the git, or shove you in front of a monitor playing Red vs Blue to show you what comedy is.

    Oh, and about the fridge thing, there is something extremely wrong with you. Spoof has its place in the Indiana Jones movies. Like the first one, where that henchman with a big sword swings it around to show off, like many other action movies did, and Indie just takes out a pistol and shoots him dead. That was spoof that worked. That was comedy that worked. For that matter, comedy has also worked in the past for Indie, like the timeless “He didn’t have his ticket” moment, or the part in the third movie with the librarian and his stamp. That was funny. That showed wit and timing. And you know what? It didn’t feel out of place. It flowed. In other words: Spoof does not work when it utterly breaks the viewer’s suspense of disbelief, and drags them back to reality where they think, “I’m watching a movie.” In case you don’t know, that is a bad thing. In any decent movie, it keeps the viewer engrossed in it; it makes them forget that they are in a theater watching a recording of people saying memorized lines. The Crystal Skull completely failed at this.

    Bottom line: You’re an easily-impressed twat who has lost all sense of standards or quality, and so is anyone who enjoyed this crap.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Bruce-Kilkowski/583400802 Bruce Kilkowski

       And you’re an asshole who doesn’t understand the concept that tastes differ. Liking this movie doesn’t make someone a twat without standards. It just means they have their own opinion about it. Hell, it’s hating this movie that makes someone a sheep, not the other way around.

      • Anonymous

        Ah yes, because all opinions are created equal, right? Because someone THINKS something is good, that must be just because their tastes are different, and as such are unable to be proven wrong?

        Here’s a bit of a lesson in reality: There is such a thing as stupidity. If you accept that is true, you must also accept that stupid opinions exist as well. Liking this movie is a stupid opinion, for the simple reason that the movie is nothing special when compared to the older series.

        And here’s another little something, Bruce: Not everyone gives a damn about being called a sheep. I sure as hell don’t. Do you know why? Because it’s a term used by self-important gits who think they’re better than others by going against the flow instead of just being themselves, people who think that when the majority is not on their side, it’s just because everyone but them is an idiot. You preach to me about others having different opinions, but the next sentence you refer to critics of this movie as sheep. The sheer hypocrisy of that alone is staggering. Did it ever occur to you that maybe just once in a while, when the stars align, the majority may be right? Ever?

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Bruce-Kilkowski/583400802 Bruce Kilkowski

           I don’t always go against the majority. For example, I don’t care for the Star Wars prequels. I do know people who at least like Revenge of the Sith, but I’m not going around calling them stupid for it. That’s because something being stupid is a subjective thing, and it’s not my place to tell someone else that their opinion is wrong objectively. I can say disagree with them, but that doesn’t make their opinion any less valid or any more “stupid.”

          • Anonymous

             “Something being stupid is a subjective thing”… my friend, you need to look up an internet personality by the name of Nash, and watch any single episode of his series WTFIWWY. Only that can truly illustrate the sheer level of wrong that statement holds.

            Really, do you know what else is subjective? Sanity, and by extension reality. The crackpot who proclaims “I am a squid” and believes it – and yes, I have met someone who fits that description – has his perception of reality. It’s different from ours, but reality is a subjective thing that’s different in the eyes of every human being. And yet we call the squid-guy crazy, a clearly derogatory term that happens to apply to people who hold the opinion that they are squids. Just keep that in mind the next time you throw something like subjectivity around.

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Bruce-Kilkowski/583400802 Bruce Kilkowski

             After taking the time to watch some of Nash’s stuff, I have only one conclusion. It’s completely irrelevant. It’s completely beside the point I was trying to make: an opinion can’t be wrong, because that’s what it is, an opinion. Just because someone’s opinion differs from yours doesn’t mean that it’s wrong or stupid, it just means that it’s different. You have no right to go off insulting people because they liked Crystal Skull. In other words, “what the fuck is wrong with you? It’s just a movie!”

          • Anonymous

            I never made or implied that connection. I’m simply pointing out that no, opinions are not in fact immune to criticism and are not created equal. Your assertion was that peope’s opinions are just as valid as everyone else’s simply because they exist, and I responded with some very basic examples to refute that point. You can’t say that everyone’s opinion is acceptable because of its nature as an opinion while still looking down on Scientologists and the mentally ill about their opinions on reality; the relativistic perspectives and absolutist perspectives have never meshed well, no matter how hard people have tried. Either some people are right and other people are wrong, or there is no such thing as correct or incorrect; you can’t take both stances.

            Feel free to call me a troll to your heart’s content; whatever convinces you you’re better than me and that all I say is slanted, invalid, or just trying to aggravate you. It’s a very human, understandable response to confrontation.

    I didn’t think that this movie was that bad until I saw the ending. At that time I realized how bad the movie really was. Sure Indiana Jones movies all have some sort of fantasy/sci fi element to them that requires you to have at least some amount of suspension of disbelief… but ALIENS?!?!? And aliens that reward you for free them by creating a vortex of face melting proportions?

    Eff that. I’ll take the Arc of the Covenant, the Sankara Stones and the Holy Grail any day.

    This is the weakest of the Indiana Jones movies, but the reason it’s the weakest is because of its reliance on CGI effects, more so than any Indiana Jones movie in the past. Those effects looked so out of place it made it kind of hard for you to believe the more ridiculous plot elements, like the nuke scene or the aliens. Those probably wouldn’t have seemed nearly so bad if the movie did a better job of drawing you into the movie.

    Also, I don’t think a lot of people really understood that having Indiana Jones do the same thing he did before wouldn’t really have worked. If Indiana Jones was going to be fighting Nazis in this movie, it’d have to be just a few years after the last one, and Harrison Ford has aged considerably. I mean, it was really noticeable how older he was than he had been in the last film. So the only way to do this was to set it in the late 50s. And that entailed drawing on a different set of inspirations than the old films. To me, it seemed like they were going not for a 50s B-Movie feel, as some have claimed, but more like a Silver Age comic book feel. In Silver Age comic books, magnetism really did work like that, aliens showed up all the time, communists were behind everything, and you could survive a nuclear blast by encasing yourself in lead.

    But like I said, the lack of practical effects made the audience less willing to accept all that. A shame, really, because I recognized what the movie was trying to be, and I’m rather upset it didn’t achieve it. I would have liked to see a good movie like that.

    to be honest, i am not that much of a Indiana Jones fan and have only recently (re)watched the one with the Arc of the Covenant, and it has a lot of implausible moments (firing an mp38 and spraying the bullets just before Indy’s feet? or him using a RPG7?), but it was entertaining and often funny (the snakes in the crypt).
    this movie felt wrong right from the start. it was rarely entertaining, it was so obviously trying and consistently failing to be funny.
    to quote someone: “Aliens? Really?” ‘well, technically, they’re not aliens. They’re transdimensional beings.’ =.= ugh…
    the fridge scene was horrible! i can’t even make a joke out of how horrible and idiotic it is…
    and the passing the torch scene promoted this reaction from me: “No. No, no, no!” until i finally sighed in slight relief when Indy takes the hat from him just in time.
    All in all, the movie was dissapointing. Watch it with company because that’s about the only way i can see you actually watching it through if you’re not a die-hard Indy fan. If you watch it alone, i promise you you’ll walk out of the theatre or take the dvd back way before you intended and feel dissapointed.

    No one writes a better score? What about Clint Mansell, Wendy Carlos or Danny Elfman? I don’t think I’ve heard any movie score that can beat Mansell’s “Lux Aeterna”.

    Anyway, I agree with you on pretty much everything else. “The Crystal Skull” was quite poor. What bothered me most personally was the way too stretched chase sequence with the jeeps (that completely artificial scene felt like it took forever and wasn’t compelling at all) and the f***ed up ending. What were they thinking? What the hell were they thinking? I personally have no problem with incorporating aliens in an Indiana Jones film and even the fridge didn’t bother me too much (it’s not like the other Indiana Jones were hyperrealistic) but they could at least have tried to make the ending make ANY SENSE WHATSOEVER.

    When did Halo enter this conversation? Ever? It’s a very simple question.

    So… a sense of timing and wit is a strange sense of humor? And the fridge surviving a nuclear explosion wasn’t total bull? Is there any real point to speaking to you about anything if you answer “yes” to either of those?

    Nostalgia? I didn’t see any of the Indiana Jones movies until three years ago. They weren’t a part of my childhood in any capacity. It isn’t about old vs new; it’s about quality vs cop-out. I love Inception just as much as I love Singin’ In the Rain. I’m just a member of the current generation who can tell there is a clear quality difference in this instance between the old series and a tacked-on sequel no one was expecting or truly wanted. Assuming that I have nostalgia goggles on makes an ass out of you and… no, wait, just you.

    I do not get why people bitch about the Aliens. Do you understand the concept of the Indiana Jones movies? They are homages to the movies of the 40s, about the Nazis and religious artifacts (Which the Nazis where actually looking for during the war.). This movie is an Homage to the 50′s Alien movies that where so popular at the time. So it makes perfect sense to use Aliens in this movie.

      No, it still doesn’t make sense, really. If the premise of Indiana Jones is to be a homage to the movies of the 40s (and I would love a list of WHICH movies), then it should have stuck to that. That’s what people are familiar with in the franchise, and that is what it is good at. It’s like if Family Guy suddenly shifted its parodies to that of early 1900s figures and events instead of modern ones; it’d still be full of parodies, but not the type that it’s known for and that its audience likes.

      If they wanted to make a movie that was a homage to the movies and cliches of the 50s, they could’ve easily done it, but they should’ve done it with a new franchise instead of dragging Indie into it. Take the entire Indiana Jones cast, characters, and – most importantly – continuity out of the equation, and the movie would have been a lot less hated. A cynic would say that they didn’t do that because the Indiana Jones label would be sure to sell tickets and that coming up with a new, likable cast of characters and ideas is hard. Call me a cynic, then.

      As it stands, though, they made this movie to bleed a stone that had been buried over a decade ago. Argue the plot and premise all you want, that’s what it comes down to, and that’s where a lot of the hatred comes from.

      OK, I get where you’re coming from, but seriously; don’t compare this movie to Temple of Doom. There is nothing wrong with Temple of Doom, and people who say differently are, I’m sorry, just wrong. We love that movie (and the other two) because it helps us believe that someone really COULD survive falling off a cliff into a river. Or hiding in the fin of a submarine for several days without being detected. Or bringing down an enemy fighter with seagulls. This movie, on the other hand, doesn’t even try. Theres a big difference between something that is fun, and something that is just stupid.
      Bottom line, this movie shouldn’t have been made at all. Everything that made us love Indiana Jones has been removed in favour of introducing an unwelcome new character, uninspired CG, and a story that is, lets face it; stupid. It was a blatant cash-in by George Lucas, and nothing more.
      Let me put it this way; the voodoo guy ripping a guys heart out of his chest; the mine cart chase; the collapsing rope bridge; I’m going to remember those scenes from Temple of Doom until the day I die. I honestly can’t even remember a single name from this movie.

    know its 3 years later after this review and you may now be up to date
    about this info but i figure it must be said for everyone else if not
    for you, yes this movie was bad and im not even a fan of the old Indiana
    Jones but im not bashing cause of that this movie was really bad BUT
    back in 2006 there was a book that hinted to the Crystal Skulls being
    the only thing to save this world in 2012 and in 2007 they had full
    documentaries about it and groups who worshiped the skulls in hope that
    they would really save us all and shit like that, thusly this was the
    result of the movie it was on the boom of this stupid 13 crystal skulls
    found all over the world and the mystery behind them so this movie tried
    its best in a Hollywood fashion to explain them to the general public
    and as you clearly paid to see just in a really bad attempt and i have
    to say even though im not a fan of the series this movie killed the
    other 3 it was so bad it didnt feel like and Indiana movie and putting
    Shylafuck face in the movie cause he was a hit was just a fuckin ploy to
    get the kids who liked him from the Transformers movies to hopefully
    get a new audience just like most movies these days. so i feel your pain
    on this but i hope this info helps you and everyone else here
    understand the premise behind this movie and why they went with the
    crystal skulls

    yes i realize im no good at explaining things that well still hope it helps xD

    I’m ok with the Star Wars Prequels

    i can understand the hate, but i cant see how they could ruin Star Wars as a whole for you

      Now, there is way too much for me to grab into, I’m just gonna list a few.
      1) The force can now be explained with biology (Midichlorians).
      2) The feared and beloved Darth Vader turns out to be a sulky teenager in a robot suit.
      3) The plot makes little sense (especially in Episode 1). Why does the Trade Federation help Sidious? Exactly what is the prophecy about Anakin? Where and when was it told? If Qui Gon is willing to cheat in bets, why doesn’t he just steal the parts for the ship he needs? Why does the trade federation park their spaceship far from Theed? Now, these are just SOME of the bad plot points of the 1st movie. Now, I’m sure most of this can be covered up by spinoffs (books, comic books, video games, etc) made by people trying to cover up for Lucas’ bad scripts.
      4) The movies generally fails to connect with the audience.

    I
    have yet to find a single Indiana Jones fan or casual movie-goer that
    is indifferent about this film. Nobody loved Indiana Jones and the
    Kingdom of the Crystal Skull; people either liked it or they hated it.
    After listening to the reviews and hearing public opinion I can see
    both sides, but ultimately I have to choose one.
     
    The curiosity over
    how I felt about this film has been so intense I have almost shied away
    from expressing how I feel about it at all, after all no matter what I
    say I’m bound to alienate half the Indiana Jones fan base. But then,
    controversy has never stopped me before, so here – once and for all -
    is where I stand on the film… I’m with the people that liked it on this
    one. I thought it was good.
     

    Merely the first
    twenty minutes in I was surprised both by how early and how often I was
    laughing and enjoying my self. The pace of the film was excellent
    except for a few places, and the story was at least interesting enough
    to keep you in the seat. I was also astonished by how closely this film
    followed the Indiana Jones format. Unlike the dreaded Star Wars
    prequels this is an addition to a franchise that does not feel like
    it’s on an island all by it’s self; it was unmistakably Inide.

     
    The chief complaints
    I’ve heard about this film have to do with the outlandishness of a lot
    of the scenes, and of the films theme. But try as I may (with one vine
    swinging exception) I was unable to locate a single scene in the film
    that was anymore outlandish or ludicrous than any other Indiana Jones
    film ever made.
     

    The theme of course
    has to do with the aliens. I would worry that that was a spoiler if I
    thought there was a single person left in the world that wasn’t aware
    there were aliens in this film (apologies if you are it). The alien
    motif had me worried as much as anyone else, and for a while I really
    wondered if this would not be to the films detriment. But as I sat
    there watching this play out I asked my self “Is this really anymore
    hard to swallow than a load of Ghosts flying out of the arc of the
    covenant?”. Ultimately, my answer was no.
     

    There was also some
    concern over Shia LaBeouf ‘s performance. LaBeouf has been another
    Jason Biggs (of American Pie fame) for me. Biggs irritated me in every
    type-casted role he had ever been in, and it wasn’t until I saw him in
    something more serious that I actually found him to be good. Kingdom of
    the Crystal Skull was worlds away from serious, but LeBouf plays a much
    more serious role, and he wears it well; much better than Transformers
    at least.
     

    The film was
    certainly not perfect, but unlike most I did not think the problems
    were in the silly set ups and ‘get out of jail free’ solutions to
    perilous situations. If this film has a serious problem it was probably
    the story. It’s just plain hard to keep track of most of the time.
    There is a tremendous amount of exposition (probably more than in any
    other Indie film), and if you aren’t paying attention – and I mean like
    there’s gonna be a quiz on this at the end – it’s really easy to get
    lost. Particularly when it comes to a crucial plot point about someone
    taking the skull, bringing it somewhere, failing to unlock a puzzle,
    and taking it right back again.
     
    Another interesting
    fact about this film, in fact what may have been too big a hurtle in
    the eyes of some, is that the ‘deal breaker’ scene comes very early in
    the film, and to protect those who have not yet seen the film, this
    deal breaker comes in the form of a refrigerator. As soon as this scene
    was over I said to my self “this is the point of no return. If the
    audience cannot accept this, they won’t be able to accept anything else
    in the film”. I did accept it, and once I sat back and said “whatever”
    (Indiana Jones films typically require extra suspension of disbelief) I
    had a great time at the movies. The Indiana Jones franchise has never
    been about the stories; not really. Indiana Jones has always been about
    having as much fun as you can in a movie, and I have to say this movie
    was a lot of fun.
     

    When I came out of the theater I said that it was at least better than Temple of
    Doom.
    I’m gonna go ahead and take that back only because I feel that Kingdom
    of the Crystal Skull was really just a revisiting of the franchise
    rather than an addition to it. It was a reunion film which is weird for
    me to say because I generally feel that no franchise should ever do
    this; no franchise should ever get the cast back together for the sake
    of a reunion. But Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is a very rare exception
    in my view; it really does work on that level.
     

    This film is hardly
    a classic, and will never grasp the adoration of the public the way the
    original trilogy did, and rightfully so, it’s not in that league. But
    taken as a fun time at the movies as well as one of our favorite Icons
    coming back for one last adventure, Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is a
    success in my book. To those who hated it, I sympathize with a lot of
    the criticisms, but I liked the film. It inspires no standing ovations,
    it breaks no new ground, but it was a hell of a lot of fun.

    Oh, you forgot to point out that the Crystal Skulls were proven to be a hoax. Not in the context of being alien but in the context of they weren’t as old as they were supposed to be or tied to the cultures that they were supposed to be. Basically they’re like a brontosaurus. They were made by some guys who wanted to trick people and say “look what I found.”

    I think this review is much better in pointing out the movie’s flaws than Plinkett’s recent review. 

    • operasjonhusk

      Don’t really agree, while Spoony is more direct in telling how its wrong, Plinkett goes into great detail of stuff, so what hes really saying might be hard to get. IMO both of the reviews are good, they are just very different

  • phoenixrider100

    You skipped the nuke? The NUKE? How can you review this movie and leave out the stupidest bit?

    • phoenixrider100

      Oh thank god you have redeemed yourself at the end:)

  • Arsenal Of Megadeath

    i liked this movie the other indy movie’s focus was on religion because that was the focus of the time periods the movies were set in.this new one is in the 50s when everyone was obsessed with aliens, so it makes sense to have aliens in it. Also how come people accept hearts being taken out, a ghost knight, and the ghosts in the ark, but a frige used as a way to escape a nuke people flip, its called leaving our minds out of the theater during a flipping action movie. it would be one thing if the frige scene was used but no aliens i would have a small problem, but I LOVE ALIENS SO FUCK IT, IT WAS ENJOYABLE AND THAT IS ALL THAT MATTERS WITH A MOVIE. INDIANA JONES IS NOT AN ART MOVIE TO BE NITPICKED TO DEATH! 

  • HEYitsnotbraindead

    both movie’s suck, and boy does this one. but i have too say that bayformers is allot worse…Indy 4 at least TRIED to be a Indy movie.

    but hey there is an up side! Spielberg and Lucas are consistent: they ruined the Jedi, Optimus Prime AND Indiana Jones! 

    no wait that’s not an up side ;(

  • Senna4ever

    I can’t take someone’s view seriously when they do the immature name changing thing like “Shia LaButtfuck”. Playground mentality.

    I quite enjoyed Indy 4. Was it amazing? No, but it was a good, fun action romp which is what Indy is about.
    For me there is only one great Indy film and that is Raiders. After that they are all “meh”.
    I preferred it over Doom. No I do not think Doom is “ass”, I quite liked it. But it was very average.
    Yes I agree Marion was underused. Yes Mutt was overused. However, it still had the Indy staples and it “felt” like an Indy adventure.
    Bitching about how none of the characters came back (Sallah)…hey, they were not in Doom either. Yes I know Doom is a prequel, but Indy had known Sallah for years anyway.

    I think the 4 Indy films fit into 2 camps. You have the more “grounded” and connected Raiders and Crusade. 
    Then there are the more OTT, balls to the wall duo of Doom and Skull.
    I like all 4, but as I said. Raiders is the only great one. The other 3 are watchable fun though.

    I have no problem with the alien idea. I mean, Indy is based on those old B-movie/1940 serials and yes, they did feature aliens.
    The only thing I disliked about Indy 4 was actually showing the aliens. It should have been mystery, it should have been left open to interpretation.
    Did not like the ending when the alien outright shows up and kills the bad guy. Yeah it was like Raiders I agree. Yet in Raiders God him/itself did not turn up and kill the Nazis.
    As I said, the aliens should have been mystery.

    Just wanted to point out though Spoony. They didn’t “pass the torch” at all.
    Almost, but not quite. Mutt picks up Indy’s hat and almost puts it on…then Indy takes it from him and wears it himself.

      If you have around 2hours on your hand, you should see Plinkett’s (from Redlettermedia) review of it. He picks the movie apart in almost every detail and explains why its bad in hilarious ways. Personally, I didn’t mind the movie, but for me it was much too dull and dumb to be watched twice.

  • Mavros St. John

    Regarding the ending: She LITTERALY SAID, “I want to know EVERYTHING”. The filled her mind with every detail of our universe, and she vaporized(not melted, by the way) which was a fitting in a way…
    (Not defending it…)

    Yeah, I loved this movie :) Definitely not the worst in the franchise and I don’t understand the flack it gets (same with Star wars prequels :) )

    Spoony must write for South Park.
