Because in his old age, George Lucas couldn't help himself obsessively meddling with everything good that he ever created. ;)

Who do you think cast Sean Patrick Flannery, Corey Carrier, and George Hall? Young Indy was George's baby.

It's no better or worse than the Rogue One or Last Jedi trailers have been.

I think people in general are starting to get franchise fatigue with Star Wars at this point. Disney has over-milked the...

Christ Pratt is both too old and too jacked to play a convincing Indy. If they recast, they'll go with a lesser-known actor who is on the young side, because recasting is a long-term investment in...

People are so hung up on the idea that what made the Indy movies good was action and adventure. That's bull****. The movie that had arguably the MOST action (KOTCS) was by far the worst, and it was...

Blade Runner 2049 was excellent, as was Ford's performance in it, and the fact that they didn't overuse him. You're not going to find a lot of agreement that Ford brought that movie down.

I agree. It was terrible in the games, too. It's not even so much the name as it is the fact that the whole idea of a super-secret world-threatening mercenary army is just so tired and uncreative.

Good God! Remember how awesome it was when movies were actually designed to tell complete stories on their own and not be launch pads for endless interconnected tie-in merch bull****? Ugh.

I think they should recast Leia for Episode IX and let the character play the larger role in that film's story that they were obviously setting up in this film. Reverence...

Ability to enjoy/be knowledgeable about Indiana Jones is inversely proportional to the ability to have a v agina, apparently. Lol

Frankly, Harrison IS an old fogie, and his time as Indy is long past. It has been high time for new blood to take on the character for years.

The Lost World novel really is a great read though. I frankly like it better than Jurassic Park. The movie is a huge let-down though, no question.
