That's the catch. I understand that making these films is fun for them, but outside of that and the financial returns the hunger doesn't seem to be there.

Sadly, I think you're right. Spielberg doesn't seem to have that same spark that he used to. I'm hoping one more Indy outing can bring out the best in him.

I do find it to the most emotional and powerful of the series. The father/son aspect adds an urgency and dramatic pull that's unique to the franchise. The other three have their moments but nothing...

It's always fun to look back on stuff like this. I still have my original NES cartridges for ToD and LC. They weren't great games but I have fond memories of playing them as a kid.

I like a lot of Harper's reviews. He has a nice way of being objective and giving good insights into what makes a film work or fail. I'm anxious to see what he does with KOTCS.

I can see that to some extent but it never really bothered me. The move away from pulp felt like a natural turn for the series at that point, though it would be nice to see it come full circle and...

There are moments when the films chain them together. The last half hour of TOD is non-stop action but we had to go through some dialogue and drama scenes to get there. Once Indy and the gang are...

I miss the days when action sequences felt "earned", something that you built up to and that made them special. I always felt the Indy films did a solid job of spacing them out.

I think it has more to do with the old influences of the character. I kind of like the fact that Indy has a certain "look" that doesn't really change through the years. There's something iconic and...

I would have been cool to see a bit more of Chattar Lal and his involvement. He was an interesting character that didn't get much screen time.

I love that TOD attempts to do something different. That's not to say I dislike the more streamlined approach of LC and KOTCS but Temple's dark and claustrophobic nature has always stuck out to me. I...

That was one of my many disappointments with the game. The narrative is hollow and it's evident that much was cut out of the game or altered radically. It's another reason why so many of us were...
