They are just a minor detail.

Do you seriously think all future Indy movies, including any prequels, need them?


If I were a shark, I'd be profoundly offended by that suggestion.

I'd give both creepy-crawlies and Indy's fear of snakes a miss altogether.

You are barking up the wrong tree.
I'm not too hang up on character growth either, and was just replying to someone else's post.

I'm worried about action scenes in general, not just fights.

That's not entirely true (see OldIndy2323's remarks), and definitely not the main reason why KOTCS sucks.

I have zero interest in watching movies based on an Indy "universe", set in modern times.
Lara and Nathan are more than enough for that.

Completely agree.

I think the odds of Spielbgerg/Koepp/Kaminski delivering a better film than KOTCS are prohibitively long.

I only read "The Six Sacred Stones" in this trilogy, and thought it was ok - although the Indy rip-off factor is so blatant it's almost tongue-in-cheek.

But I'd wait to sing Indy 5's praises at the box office at this stage.
Don't forget that a huge chunk of goodwill was wasted with KOTCS.
