I'm optimistic about Indy 5?? That's some very significant news to me.

Also, I'm not a Star Wars fan in the slightest so I don't care one way about the Prequels.



Go on, tell us all how The Last...

Or they were so starved for something of quality when Revenge of the Sith rolled around that just by the film not sucking as hard they came in their fan-pants, practically.

And it's possible that...

I'll respond more to that later (are you capable of condensing things...?) but to suggest that Revenge of the Sith was good footing is only half-true.

It fared better because of the true awfulness...

This makes no sense, either.

The Star Wars prequels were much more hurtful to the Star Wars brand than Kingdom of the Crystal Skull ever was.

Yet...did the prequels hurt the success of The Force...

It's less of a selfish thing and more of a point that the series had more in it than 3 or 4 films over a period of 35 years.

The tie irked me. Just looked bad.

And the Last Crusade fedora is really bad, in my opinion. It's just too small.



A re-watch of the later two films won't change your perception much. Definitely...

There's 2,000 registered users. Doesn't mean they all post.

Even if they did, that is 2,000 out of the possibly billion people who saw the film.

It's not just that he copied an outfit which is an odd thing to do, anyway.

But I always thought that Indy's outfit was simply the clothes he felt were the most suited for what he did...

Probably not.

As I've said before, if it had been made by 2013-ish, cool. But they've waited too long.

The Last Crusade could be accused of feeling the most dull of the four.

Very same-y, bland color palette, a bit droll.

Yes - he's going to be paid handsomely. Because that's what he does.

I really, really don't want a fifth film.

As I've probably said here - a fifth film should've been made by 2012-2013 at the very latest and even that was pushing it.

I recall how Spielberg and...

Still my 2nd favorite of the series.

2013? That was when Harrison turned 70 - and that was the bar, for me.

I was always saying that an Indy 5 film should've been made between 2010-2013 at the latest because of Harrison's age.

I know Funko's co-founder. I'll have to ask him what is up regarding no wide release Indy figures.

I can't believe people actually took such issue with some prairie dogs who were around for 1.5 seconds.

I didn't even notice the Mutt nut-shot on the first viewing, either.

Such silly little things...
