    What's wrong with his character?

    Or is this more of a "I hate Sean Connery, therefore I hate all of his characters" type of criticism.
    No, it's more of a problem with the character than it is with the performance. As I've mentioned numerous times before, the character is overly precious, used for cheap humor and sentimentality.

    Spielberg needs to stop with these movies if only so I don't have to read how "X film" is the best in the series. To me it is so obvious that Raiders is the best that saying anything else just makes my head hurt.

    I totally agree with you. I thought the exact same thing.

    Except it was about Temple of Doom.

    I was actually just reading about Matt Damon and he’s like, ‘There’s a culture of outrage.’ I’m like, ‘Well, they have a reason to be outraged.’ I think it’s a lot of dudes just being scared. They’re like, ‘What if I did something and I didn’t realize it?’ I’m like, ‘Deal with it.’

    Considering he only works with really big budget movies these days, probably not. Although in 1993 and 1997 he made two large budgeted movies, so maybe he's just getting older.

    Apparently he's filming War Horse, so we will have another pair of Spielberg movies next year too.

    I'd hear any argument that one of the first three is the best, but to say any of them are worse than Crystal Skull borders on lunacy.

    Can I remind people that Temple of Doom has Kate Capshaw? I feel like this needs to be mentioned.

    Her unbearably shrill performance is the paramount reason (over assorted other flaws mind you) that I can't bring myself to give the film a positive score. Raiders is still the only Indy film I really give a damn about, as cliched an opinion as that may be.

    I didn't mind her in the opening, and she's fine once they're working their way out of the caves, but I can't argue that she really brings down the middle of the film. Then again, Lucas and Spielberg also bring down the middle of the film with all that unnecessary darkness.

    This is a new one. Unnecessary darkness? You mean child slavery? Or hearts being ripped out of people's chests? Because the original had melting faces. Granted, the heart thing lasted longer, looked more explicit, but still. I thought it worked. The atmosphere is nicely foreboding and that it all started as an homage to the 30's serials should not mean that 30's serials and darkness are mutually exclusive.

    But anyway, I actually had no issues with Kate Capshaw, but I can see how others might be less lenient.

    The original had melting faces, but those came at the very end, and to people who "deserved" such a fate, and the combined three images (Toht, the Nazi, Belloq) lasted for maybe five seconds. Compare that to Doom, where Indy gets a minute of screen-time to writhe in agony on a pedestal. Where Indy and Shorty are whipped viciously. Where Indy chants like a zombie as he locks up Willie, right before he slaps Shorty. Where an entire set-piece is devoted to ritualistic torture and murder.

    I think it's bold, I suppose that those scenes are succeeding at what they intend to do, and I adore the movie surrounding those scenes (the final forty minutes may be the best action ever put to film), but come on, dude. This is not a new point to make, not when the film in question spurred the creation of PG-13, and not when the two chief creators of the film have gone on record as saying the film was too dark.

    Perhaps the point is not a new one, but I still think the darkness is not a hindrance regardless of whether the makers felt their movie was too dark. Sure, had it been, uhm, lighter, it likely wouldn't have been a problem either for me, but perhaps it speaks about Spielberg & Lucas as optimists, purveyors of mass entertainment - and I mean that in the nicest way - that they felt it was too dark whereas I say unleash the darkness!

    The Last Crusade is the sloppiest, most generic and bland Spielberg film I have seen. Crystal Skull is much, much worse, in terms of the overall experience, but it at least tries something and has some narrative curveballs. Crusade is so damn.....dull.

    Shia LaBeouf, who played Indy's son in Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, told MTV News that he spoke recently with star Harrison Ford, revealing, "(Harrison) said he's staying in the gym, he said he's heard no word, but he does know that (George Lucas) is out there looking for a MacGuffin. He said he's staying in the gym, so it means (the movie is) not so far off."

    Well, that's what LaBeouf seems to think, anyway, although he acknowledged that Lucas may take a long time to figure out what he wants a fifth Indy adventure to be about. "I mean, he's got to let it sit," admitted LaBeouf, who's starring in Transformers: Dark of the Moon this summer. "He's going through his ruminations, which is extensive."

    But if Ford himself is "staying in the gym," that sounds like he's ready to don the fedora and bullwhip again, which he confirmed himself last year: "It's on George's plate, and I'm hoping he's working hard at it, because I'd look forward to doing it again if the three of us could get together—George, (director) Steven Spielberg, myself—I'd love to do another."

    I hope they go back to a religious artifact as the macguffin. But, knowing Lucas it'll be something like Indiana Jones and The Lost Magic Underpants of Salt Lake.

    They should have the guts to finally kill off the IJ character and hand the proverbial franchise torch off properly, since that seems to be primary goal.
