It doesn't sound like Indiana Jones to me. How would you relate a stateside political conspiracy to a globe-trotting adventure involving a supernatural artifact? How does such a plot accommodate...

Worrying about "political correctness" when we don't even have an inkling of what the story is going to be about isn't a great look for fans. In addition to feeling like tilting at windmills, it...

I stopped reading that article when it began its defense by asserting that the movie "had the right look, at the very least."

I agree with the belief that Crystal Skull's box office triumph was all but ordained and had little to do with quality. The movie alleviated a 19 year Indy drought, and that's what made it...

I think a lot of people retroactively concluded that alien's were a "no-go" after how disappointing Crystal Skull was. Had it been a better movie, I bet it would have been less of a controversy.

These are the only odds:

If Spielberg is engaged, the chances are 100% that it will be a better movie.
If Spielberg is not engaged, the chances are 0%.

With Star Wars, maybe. With Indy, there's not really a tradition of that.

I think part of the explanation is that Spielberg and Lucas intended Last Crusade to be the finale for different reasons. For Spielberg, it was because he wanted to move on and make other kinds of...

I don't think Last Crusade is bland-looking, but I agree that Temple of Doom did an excellent job of leveraging the small but crucial location work they did in Sri Lanka, so that even with a...

Supposedly, the Jeff Nathanson draft also took place in 1949. I think the important thing to Lucas was that the story take place post-Roswell. Ultimately they chose 1957 to reflect the 19 years...

What's particularly weird about Crystal Skull breaking the tradition of a self-contained teaser is that it would have worked way better that way. The Roswell alien really has no bearing on the rest...

I'm not saying it couldn't be done, but I doubt it's what Disney had in mind when they bought the property. Of course, my position is that they should eschew the reboot altogether and make an...

But that leaves you with a character who lives in the 60s. The only reason we are out of the 30s is to accommodate Ford's age. With him gone, surely Disney would want to bring the franchise back to...

I agree with that. The villains don't have to represent a global superpower. Temple gave us cultists and Chinese mobsters. I would be happy with more antagonists at a smaller scale.

It hasn't and it's too bad, because we can't judge Lucas's flying saucers concept without it. The Jeb Stuart draft is valuable as a work-in-progress peek at the general idea, but since Lucas was not...

I don't know where you got the idea that the previous Indy movies were independently financed by Lucasfilm, but I assure you it isn't the case.

Koepp always seems to be signed to multiple projects at once, so it may mean nothing, but who knows? Six months ago he seemed to be suggesting that work was winding down.
