I watched it on DVD last night, and enjoyed it faaaar more than I did when I originally caught it at the cinema.
The comfort of being at home, coupled with prior knowledge that it isn't going to be the greatest film ever must've helped somewhat.
Also when I saw at the cinema I had watched the other three Indy flicks the day before, something I don't recommend as it really hammered home the fact that the new one is no where near as good as the oldies.

Yeah...I never expected this to be awesome, I mean, how could it live up to the hype...but my god, its awful. It doesn't matter if you compare it to the original three or not, its just unpleasant to watch. I found it pretty depressing to watch Harrison Ford's uncomfortable performance along, with Shia LaBouff's epic failure, ruin one of my all time favourite trilogies. But the performances aren't all to blame really. The script was empty of the charm and humour that made the originals so great while the complete CGI overkill made it so the film lost the feeling of the old films.

The fridge bit was ridiculous while countless other moments such as Shia LaBouff now infamous jungle scene and just the general ending, made you want to leave.

The only positive thing to come from the movie is that instead of tainting the original trilogy with its all round bullshit, it reminds you of what was so great about the Indiana Jones films in the first place. But seriously....how did they get it so wrong?!?!?!

ORIGINAL: CreepyThinMan

Jesus…..mother……fucking…..Christ that was soul crushingly awful. There was nothing, I repeat, NOTHING of any merit to this bloated, under written, badly acted, slapdash piece of steaming fucking maggot shit.

This is The Phantom Menace of Indiana Jones movies.  The scripting was a fucking mess, firstly because David Koepp is an inept fucking tool, who’s work is nothing but surface level gloss, like the sheen of a fresh piece of shit in the desert sun. But then it doesn’t help when the script was cobbled together, from half a dozen drafts by other, better writers. Then there’s the FACT that they realized that they didn’t even have a workable script and just made it up as they went along.

When you think the acting couldn’t be any worse then Last Crusade, future generations will need to invent another, more powerful word for “shit” when they describe the “acting” in this movie which is so fucking bad that after I walked out of the theatre a crack whore said she’d “suck my cock for $20” and it sounded like fucking Shakespeare compared to the line reading’s of this group of overpaid retarded fucking monkey’s.

All of the leads we’re so motherfucking rancid that I wanted to smash their fucking skulls in with the back end of a claw hammer. Ford looked like he was reading off cue cards during a Saturday Night Live rehearsal while Karen Allen seemed to be more interested in getting back to the bingo hall. Shia LaBouff has worn out his welcome. Hopefully Bumblebee will drop a giant metallic shit on him in the first 5 minutes of Transformers 2 to spare us of this fucking ass clown. Not only did Cate Blanchett’s accent sound like a fucking moose farting but she seemed like she was auditioning for a remake of Ilsa : She Wolf of the SS, which is funny because I wanted to cut Spielberg’s balls off and piss on George Lucas for making this cash grab. Jim Broadbent, Ray Winston and John Hurt’s characters could have been completely written out and you wouldn’t have even noticed that they we’re missing since they added NOTHING that impacted the movie in any way that Indy couldn’t have done or found out himself.

No drama, no suspense, no threat, no entertainment of any value is to be found in this soulless fucking piece of shit that it reeked more then a fucking concentration camp in the summer heat. Even the special effect’s we’re so shit that I have to wonder what the FUCK is going on at I.L.M. I don’t have a problem with C.G.I. but when the C.G.I. is so badly rendered it makes me fucking sick at the thought of how much this shit cost. Almost everything was badly rendered, the car chase/sword fight had some of the worst C.G.I. rendering, matting and artificial lighting that I can remember seeing in at least five years. No one looked like they we’re actually in whatever environment they we’re supposed to be in and it didn’t help that Janusz Kaminski’s cinematography was nothing but hazing lighting/soft focus shit. A fucking blind man could have lit this movie better.

After the prequels, I’ve came to expect nothing but this level of shit from that fucking turkey neck money grubbing fat pussyface Lucas but this is the most lazy fucking shit I have EVER seen out of Spielberg and I thought it couldn’t get any worse after The Lost World. Was he even paying attention to how shitty everything was or was he too busy polishing his Oscars and counting his money in between yelling “Action” and “Cut”? Every scene was so badly shot, framed and cut that I thought $pielberg was channeling Ed Wood while making this.  

This movie is a cocksucking disgrace. Everyone involved with it should hang their heads in shame for spraying diarrhea in my fucking eyes for a movie that seemed to go on for FUCKING EVER and my only worry is that there is no Hell for all of these people to burn in for eternity!!!FUCK!!!

Oh and I wrangled the crack whore down to $15, I'm not rich because I never repackaged old serials, bits and piece's of movies and made billions of dollars!!!



ooh look!
Godwin's Law!!!
quick everyone come and have a look.

i mean i hated this film but i still wouldnt right shit like that about it.

So...about average then?

You remember the South Park episode where everyone couldn't stop swearing and ended up puking out their intestines? This guy just finished.

I thought it was pretty good.

Oh God it does! It deserves to be publicly flogged once a year in all mayor cities in a festival something akin to Bonfire night in an attempt to remind everybody to never let Cinema sink so low again.

The vibes weren't good, so I watched this film with vastly lowered expectations.
I was still shocked at how rubbish it was.
Hate to say it, but I enjoyed 'National Treasure 2' more and that can't be right - can it?

For a start I love the original three Indie films and I honestly don't think there is anyone cooler than Harrison Ford.
But this film completely destroyed my soul and my entire Indie belief system.
For a start, Shia Lebouf as Indiana's son was the worst casting decision I have ever seen in my life. He is a smarmy, over-acting snot and I honestly can't comprehend the love for lebouf that's swarming over the movie world right now. When the grandfather is James Bond and the father is Han Solo then the son should never be the kid from Even Stevens. I mean come on, even young Indie was cool with the late, great River Pheonix taking the role!
This aside, I enjoyed the movie. I thought Harrison (though obviously a lot older and slower) did a wonderful job and I though that maybe, lebouf aside, that this would be a good movie.
...until the aliens of course. Once the skull hit the horrendous alien body then the film crashed and burned. It was cheesy, cringey and just so ridiculous that even Indiana Jones couldn't pull it off. The utterly awful wedding made me physically blush with embarassment for the film as a whole.
Disagree if you will, it seems that the world has gone mad to think that the Crystal Skull could ever compare to the genius that was temple of doom or the raiders of the lost ark.

He is a smarmy, over-acting snot and I honestly can't comprehend the love for lebouf that's swarming over the movie world right now. When the grandfather is James Bond and the father is Han Solo then the son should never be the kid from Even Stevens. I mean come on, even young Indie was cool with the late, great River Pheonix taking the role!
This aside, I enjoyed the movie. I thought Harrison (though obviously a lot older and slower) did a wonderful job and I though that maybe, lebouf aside, that this would be a good movie.
...until the aliens of course. Once the skull hit the horrendous alien body then the film crashed and burned. It was cheesy, cringey and just so ridiculous that even Indiana Jones couldn't pull it off. The utterly awful wedding made me physically blush with embarassment for the film as a whole.
Disagree if you will, it seems that the world has gone mad to think that the Crystal Skull could ever compare to the genius that was temple of doom or the raiders of the lost ark.

This is another example of one sequel too many. If it ain't broke don't fix it Lucas and Speilberg. There is no tension in this film what so ever because by now i know that every time someone captures indy i know he's going to escape somehow. There are no shocking moments in this film what so ever....well apart from Cate Blanchett's accent, i mean the guy from GTA 4 does a better russain accent than her! To sum up PLEASE NO MORE STEVEN!!!!!

Perhaps its because I'm getting old and senile, but having caught up with alot of this years big movies on DVD now, I  can honestly say that Indy 4 was my favourite movie of the year. Good old-fashioned family fun.

Very enjoyable, improves with repeat viewings. Don't mind the bit about the aliens as the previous ones were all to do with real historical artefacts with mythical fantasy powers, so it's true to the previous films.

ok first time i saw this i thought it was the worst out of all the indiana jones films and it still is. I thought it was camp, silly and cheesy and it still is, didnt need the aliens...it didnt and had a bad storyline....it did. on second viewing i thought all of these things again but it was much more entertaining and fun and took me on a roller-coaster ride of silly, cheesy and stupid fun and filled up a portion of a plane journey quite nicely. dont go into it expecting raiders or crusade or even temple because then you will come out disappointed expect cheesy dialogue, completely unrealistic set-pieces and unneeded aliens just accept it for what it is and its fun. still it doesn't disguise the fact that the movie is poor and i find it hard to believe that it took them so long to land on this script and that they had all agreed on this. its an indy film but not like what we know and love decent shot by the boys but it didn't work out and lucas should stop milking his old franchises to death and ruining them and start some new ones because in a summer where we had this and clone wars its safe to say critically it wasn't a good year for lucas.

It's not the best Indiana Jones movie in the quadrilogy by far but it is enjoyable nonetheless. The dialogue at times is extremely poor but it's the action that does most of the talking. It's great action sequences which make Indiana Jones what it is. It's a spectacle for the eyes so I never really paid attention to much dialogue in all Indy movies.

The climax in the temple reminds me of 'The Mummy' with the greedy traitor filling his pockets whilst the temple crumbles around him.

I wasn't so sure about the whole re-kindling of a former love. It ruined it for me slightly.

Well worth a watch even if it isn't the best of the four movies.

Quality wise this should be part of the national treasure franchise. I wasn't an Indy purist going in but seeing how average the previous films could have been made me appreciate how great they are. The empire review is making excuses for the film. The whole review seems to have been trying to prepare people for dissapointment by saying 'C'mon guys, the old ones were about being fun, so's this. Honest don't take it seriously and it's not too bad'. Thing is the films were never made as serious drama but just because something isn't deadly serious doesn't mean it can't achieve greatness. The original trilogy are as fine an example of blockbuster cinema as you'll find and Crystal Skull is not.

bottom line - Spielberg is a Legend and this film was great.
