Watched Indiana Jones 4 Film again and I still love it

Maybe because it was directed and written by Steven Spielberg / George Lucas respectively…

Maybe because when I was 4 years old, my older sister 6 years ahead of me grew up watching these…

Maybe because, back in the day, my dad who was a programmer in a bank made me play LucasArts Games…

Maybe because Cate Blanchett was in it coz I love her since “Elizabeth…”

Maybe because Shia Labeouf was in it, too, coz I like him…

Anyway…

Watching it again after 12 years, it’ still is an amazing film imho. But, what do you guys think of it?

I should watch it again. I saw it only once, 12 years ago. I remember I liked it but was also disappointed that it wasn’t Fate of Atlantis :stuck_out_tongue:

It was alright, I think the concept of a schlocky '50s B-movie was great, but the execution could’ve been better. :slight_smile:

I’m not sure if the story of FoA would make a thrilling Indy movie. :thinking: I’m thinking about this since I first played FoA and I haven’t come to a conclusion. There are some parts in the game that would work great as movie scenes. But a lot of them are designed to be interactive.

I’m not really sure what you’re referring to. I think it’s basically Raiders but with Atlantis. :cat:

Well, I had big expectations and I was hugely disappointed by that movie :pensive:

I think the writing wasn’t good. I think the writing is everything in a movie like this. The script wasn’t full of witty one liners like the third one. Not even close… the third one was too good, probably. But in the fourth one, I only remember a couple of good lines.

Minor problems: CGI seemed too fake. and Labeouf was too annoying, too aggressive.

Finally, the setting this time wasn’t appealing to me. (But I didn’t like the setting of the second one either).

I wish they had made a SCUMM adventure when the film came out to promote it. Hehe.

Even this parody looks just great:

Doom happens to be my favorite, but it’s a very different kind of pulp fiction.

As an aside, that video perfectly illustrates a very good puzzle that is given away by the “use” verb. It breaks my heart. :sweat_smile:

LOL that plot twist was kind of unexpected :joy:. Thanks for this!

I need to rewatch it in that spirit :slight_smile:

Guess what you made me do.

So you think that was intentional? I mean the concept, not the execution :slight_smile:.

It’s the worst of the bunch by far, and I’d gladly exchange my 4-movie DVD set with one that only has the original three.

4-disc set…” contains all three films” according to the back of the box

See, isn’t mine much nicer :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:?

It even has the 2 Disc edition of that fabulous 50s-style B-movie masterpiece! All in a glittery and shod^H^H^Hturdy cardboard box!

Oh, got that one too. But it has to sit on the side

It’s not that bad. At least not as bad any review says it is. I’d rate the films like this:

  • Last Crusade: 45%
  • Raiders of The Lost Ark: 32%
  • Kingdom of The Crystal Scull: 15%
  • Temple of Doom: 8%.

Depends a bit on what you mean by “that,” but it’s something like a '50s sci-fi flick instead of a '40s adventure flick.

So does mine, but note the sticker on the bottom left. :wink:
