I loved the music in the beginning.

The silhouette shot looks awesome...but yeah, too much CGI.

SPOILER




Anyone noticed that "Roswell" shot ?

The people who are complaining about this trailer should not see the movie at all. I am deadly serious. Because you are impossible to please. But you will never admit that.

Of course we won't admit that. Because that's an idiotic, presumptuous and flatly wrong statement.

It's guys like you I will never understand.... Nobody has to like everything because it has written "Spielber/Lucas/Ford" over it....
It's people like you that partly "made" the Star Wars prequels look like they do because people accept everything.
Lucas may sh*t on a big screen, write "Star Wars" or "Indy" (Not saying the trailer is sh*t) all over it and some people would still love it...

Your the King of presumptuous and flatly wrong statements. You have such a narrow definition of what Indiana Jones is supposed to be that this film was never going to make you happy. I have followed your posts. I know what I am talking about!

I am not a person like that at all. IS JUST A TRAILER nothing more. There is not much to really judge the film on. That is my point.

Yes. There are people just like you describe. I don't like those people either. There are also also people who are the opposite of that.... Both groups are bad.

What the hell do you mean?! You just saw 2 minutes of footage straight out of the film. You now know the cinematographic style and the relative tone of the film. That's plenty to begin judgment on.

Stop being such a follower. Question once in awhile.

Well, I am not sure if I agree with that. The trailers for Phantom Menace were awesome, but that didnt make the movie the next best thing since sliced bread did it? - albeit, its not as bad a film many make it out to be.

I dont think you can judge anything in the movie from the trailers 100%. Certain elements like usage of CGI and stuff like that...yeah, maybe you can say a trailer gives that away, but the editing, tone, direction, etc etc you really cant just simply judge from the trailer.

Notice I used the word "begin." I've made no final judgment on the film. Just an initial judgment. You better believe I'll be the first one in the theater opening night. That doesn't change that:

A. The trailer is weak
B. It provides a cursory idea of what to expect from the film

You are so transparent! You have assessed and rejected the cinematographic style based on that crappy videotaped bootleg???!!!

You amuse me greatly! Its like listening to a small child who speaks of things beyond their comprehension. LOL!

A. It's very clear
B. If you REALLY followed my posts you'd have seen that I expressly stated I'm not writing off the trailer til I see it in HD.

I see clean through you, Mr. Self-Assurance.

The irony is, Avilos, that you look for a reason to attack me based on some prejudice. I've openly questioned the film's direction in the past; OH GOD FORBID I QUESTION LORD SPIELBERG!

You are what you accuse me of; vindictive and incorrigible. You just want to "set me straight" because you want to disagree with me. How's that feel?

Hardly. I'm just sticking up for myself. I've been personally attacked due to my view on the trailer. I've every right to state my position when I'm called out.

I understand! I've been attacked too! Apparently, any opinion that is not "OH GOD! I'M IN ECSTASY" will meet with ferocious assault. My earlier views were simply based on initial viewing and my views may or may not change in due course. These guys are cult like in their thought.

You lost all credibility with me RA when you did not see the difference between the dangers of having a gun loaded with blanks on set, which have accidentally killed people (Brandon Lee), and the "dangers" of a coiled whip....

Ooooh, what an intelligent retort. Yes, I'm truly worried about my credibility with you.

And Brandon Lee was NOT shot between takes. He was shot during filming.

"Indy does not use a Gun in the film" or words to that effect.
I rest my case.

What case? I NEVER said Indy doesn't use a gun. Go back and re-read those posts; don't you already know what you're talking about? You assured me you did...

I said there was a possibility--and that it was likely he wouldn't based on circumstantial evidence. It's called speculation--that's what a forum is for... Discussion, speculation, debate... you know, based on the very definition of the word "forum."

But you'll believe whatever you want to convince yourself of, so why do I even bother pointing out your blatant fallacies?

ResidentAlien, Bottom line - you have a pattern of assuming negative things about the film with little or no evidence. You are "That Guy". Every forum, on every subject has one. Just own up to being The Raven incarnation of that cliché!
