If they cared about canon, why did they purge every singe item of the EU from canon (even those novels and games which wouldn't have intruded on their sequel series)?

I guarantee you there will be a...

Inauguration of LBJ, 1965.

I will be honest though, having the assassination and all the conspiracy theories around it could be interesting, if it was tied up into a greater MacGuffin storyline. If aliens are the 1950s popular...

If this film does end up starring Harrison, where do you feel the "line" is in terms of how far past KOTCS it should be set?

I would say, for myself, that 1962 is the limit. Any time between 1959...

Thing is, this could be the final film...of the Ford series.

I don't see why they would necessarily need to introduce a younger actor in this particular film. Let Ford have his grand finale and then...

I would accept using Ford's face on a younger stunt actor's body for scenes with the caveat that they make Ford look a little younger overall. IE just makeup and slight digital de-aging to make him...

You're becoming angry.

You're the one who first brought critics into the discussion, not I. It's pretty clear I was talking about the negative fan reaction to KOTCS and the general sentiment that...

So the critics only have merit and aren't creaming themselves when they agree with you. I see. I think you're a little too invested (both in your blinding hatred for the prequels, and your blinding...

That's pretty subjective, though. You went by critics' reviews for KOTCS - well, ROTS averages 79% on RT, which isn't a bad score. I really doubt those critics were blinded by fanboy-ism.

There's a big difference with TFA, though. TFA was the brainchild of a new creative team (along with one holdover, that being Kasdan, who is beloved by the fans) which helped to inspire hype and...

It's interesting to see how your own feelings change over time.

I would argue that Jumanji had a nostalgia factor going for it that Indy really doesn't have at this point. If the last film in the Indy series had been LC, you'd have that nostalgia factor. But a...

I've seen a lot of films made in the early 60s and from what I can see the Hippie era didn't start until around 1966.

If the film is set before 1965, no, it wouldn't have a druggy haze. Watch Mad Men one day. It'll give you an idea of what the first half of the 60s were like before Vietnam.
