Oh Dear God, No, Not An Indiana Jones 5

Before I start, let me just say that I am not a huge fan of the Indiana Jones movies, not by a long shot.  I never watched them as a kid, just like I never watched Star Wars. I watched them when I was a teenager because my best friend wants the best for me and, for what it’s worth (and also please don’t hate me for this), I liked Indiana Jones way more than Star Wars, although I never got to watch The Last Crusade. I did watch the Crystal Skull nonsense though.  So just know that I am not taking this from a fanatical viewpoint, I am taking this from the viewpoint of someone who enjoys quality films.

Here’s the Shia LaBeouf quote that made me weep for the future of cinema:

“I talked to Harrison. He said he’s staying in the gym. He said he’s heard no word, but he does know that George [Lucas] is out there looking for a MacGuffin (plot device),” said LaBeouf. “He said he’s staying in the gym, so it means, you know, it’s not so far off.”

So basically it sounds like Harrison Ford is just waiting around while George Lucas figures out how to best twist and mar the beautiful memories and dreams of children of the 80’s. Fantastic.

The way I see it, I’m either completely justified in my fears for all you hardcore Indy fans or I just need to calm my heart and stop feeling so strongly about things I’m not that invested in. What do you guys think?

  • Sucks hard. I really like Indiana Jones, and hearing this has made me sad. Why would they try and milk it even more? Surely they’ll be living off royalties until they will die. As for Star Wars, never rated it, I thought it was mindless boring.

  • Who asked either one of you for your mindless opinions? And who cares what either one of you think, really? I came upon your postings through pure happenstance and can genuinely state that I was very irritated; reading your sludge is comparable to listening to the cacophony of chickens clucking and cackling in the henhouse. People like you two are the reason I never log in to such websites on purpose. I have better things to do with my precious time. Have a lovely day!

    • Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to inform everyone that opinions that differ from your own are “mindless” and totally beneath you. I only hope that your obviously-much-higher IQ and condescending attitude will rub off on all of us.
