I'd prefer remote, no matter what. So if it's the US, Alaska would be cool. Russian villains might work there, since Sarah Palin can see Russia from her house there, right? :p

Sidenote: proportionally, that's roughly the same box office drop that occurred when you compare Star Wars to Empire, and Phantom Menace to Attack of the Clones.

I think it also has to do with being released by Disney. Want another three months? Erm, sorry guys, we don't have a release date free for another 12 months...

I think it's really hard to judge Kasdan's writing strengths/weaknesses from three films, especially when we know he wasn't the only writer on Solo.

And having done two romcoms doesn't mean that a...

Trying to move things away from supposed "agendas" once more...the other (worst case?) scenario is that the rewrite has been ordered so that the film DOES include flashbacks to a younger Indy. If...

Fingers crossed that "delay" is an overstatement. Unless it's a page-one rewrite, I don't see why the next nine months isn't enough time to polish a script. It only causes problems if the rewrites...

I wonder if that had to do with the lightbulb things they had attached to their chests, which were later covered up with visual effects? Were they concerned about the safety of the...

I don't disagree with any of your statements really. I think both posts can coexist. Yes, any interpretation of art will also be clouded by the viewer's own world view (their personal politics, the...

Good question. Despite a lack of a fine arts degree, I'll attempt to answer.
With a landscape painting: what kind of style did the artist employ? Different styles of art have been popular with...

I'm okay with prequels set in the 20s with a different actor.

Aside from that, if we're talking spin-offs, I'd watch the heck out of a Short Round series of films set in the 40s/50s! And if that...

There's definitely an argument to be made that Spielberg really dropped the ball with Crystal Skull. Sure, Lucas' input didn't help, but the direction was nothing to write home about.

Agree with this! It's what makes ToD such a good entry in the series - because it dares to be a bit different.

With regards to excluding the supernatural, I'd like to see an Indy film where...

I agree with Lambonius. It was all there in the original Indy trilogy.

And to suggest that Star Wars was never political before TLJ is insane.

All art is political. Even when it's avowedly...

Oh, I should add for the record that I love ToD. I also think that Capshaw is fantastic in the role. But they made it SO hard to like her. The moment she appears onscreen, she's belittling Indy,...

You know "millennials" were born from the early 80s to the late 90s, right? It's the generational demographic cohort after Gen X, so there are millennials who are currently in their 30s. I suspect...

That being said, we do say in the podcast that we think Kate Capshaw is excellent in the role - much better than the script deserves!

Harrison Ford's age is the thing that worries me the least about Indy V. I honestly thought he brought his A-game to KotCS - it was the script, the cinematography and even Spielberg's direction that...
