Who were those people?
Anyone who thought Indy 4 would "outdo" Raiders must have been either incredibly naive or extremely stupid.
Meaning, like, the expectation was for something on par overall with the original three, but we got something different. When ToD came out it got flak for being different. To the extent that Spielberg made LC much more akin to Raiders to "apologize" for Temple. KOTCS to me is a film that will in time get the credit it deserves, similar to the way Temple of Doom has.
I'm sure if I was to dig around I could find people who before KOTCS came out were expecting something mega epic on par with like, Fate of Atlantis.
KOTCS and ToD are for me on the same level of quality. I thought you liked KOTCS, Stoo?
