Indiana Jones
 
I didn't want to see if but SWMBO just had to, fond youth memories of the the Jones.

What a ****ing awful movie. It's like they made a bet on how horrible they could make a movie and still get people to watch it. What was up with the horrible sets instead of filming on location? Survived a nuclear blast? Everything was over the top fake. Ford is too old and apathetic for the role. What a terrible, terrible movie.

It was so bad my wife got up, cleaned the kitchen and baked a cake half way through. She never bakes.

Damn that friggin CGI groundhog (or prarie dog) at the beginning sealed the film's fate in my mind from minute 1.

Wow! Now I am glad I didn't drop the $15.99 for it this weekend. Thaks for the heads up. I will still reserve a rental copy to see for myself but thankfully now I won;t have to own the regret of a $15.99 coaster.

I was telling my sister-in-law how bad it was and asked her if she'd believe me if I told her that there were aliens and space ships in Indy 4. She started laughing and wouldn't believe me, I told her not to waste the 2 hours, because there were indeed space ships.

What a terrible movie, and I hear there are talks about Indy 5!

P.S. What the heck was the point of those monkey men!?!? bah, this movie just sucked.

P.P.S How the heck does this movie have a 76% at rottentomatoes.com!?!?!?!

Arguing for this movie is hard but on one hand I think the aliens work with the original "pulpy" ...

nope I can't really do it. I can't argue for it.

I was willing to overlook the mediocre 1st half but the last half got SO MUCH WORSE!

Ultimately I think Lucas is able to kill good ideas and make a weak movie unwatchable.

Yep, $1 rental from RedBox (vending machines). Will never get the 2 hours back though :(

Really ruined a legacy of great films. My gf liked it but she never saw the originals.
