Indy 4 was the franchise's Phantom Menance, I have no reason to believe this won't be its Attack of the Clones. Lucas is nothing more than a businessman now, and Ford no longer has a personality.

Do you really need to use language like this, don't get me wrong I think it's good for people to have strong opinions but the use of language including the f and c word?. Children quite likely access this and I really don't think people who don't have the intelligence to express their opinions without the kind of language that this post uses should be allowed to express their opinions at all.

Well i'm sorry if your offended. That's your opinion and your entitled to it. Just as i have my opinion and i am entitled to express it in any way i see fit - bad language n'all. There are worse things than bad language for children to pick up and frankly i don't think "children" actually do use these forums. I would expect most users to be at least over 15 on average and if you think they have never heard the "F & C words" before then you are mistaken.

But if you feel the need to insult peoples intelligence based on the use of bad language then go ahead - i love it when people become confrontational from behind a keyboard.

kind of surprising the BT hasnt been the focus of a big movie yet (just a load of TV movies and STVHS stuff) - probably the most well known is last years Triangle and Bryan Singers 2005 mini series (which wasnt very good) so Indy 5 would be the first really big movie about the Bermuda Triangle...maybe they could tie it into Atlantis too

sounds like if they are planning on shooting next year theyd be aiming for Summer 2012? pretty crowded as it is - Avengers, Batman, Spidey, Star Trek, Wolverine, John Carter, MiB - but thered be room for Indy...

also we could be looking at another summer 1989/2008 here (i'll let you figure it out)

He just asked for you to reign in the foul language. No need to get all defensive - a little apology wouldn't go amiss. But, hey, I suppose you can tell yourself that your "I can swear when I want whenever I want to" excuse will wash. You don't need anyone to insult your intelligence when you seem perfectly capable of doing that yourself.

Ho hum. It'd be nice to join in an interesting conversation for a change but mostly this board is just full of nerds slagging each other off.

Tally ho.

It would seem you are the one doing the slagging off as demonstrated by that very comment. Please - go join this "interesting conversation" you so crave while i resist the urge to revert back to using the bad language you are seemingly so offended by.

I'm not offended at all, and I had no intention of being confrontational. It's just a shame the only way you seem to be able to express an opinion is by insulting a film maker you disagree with rather than coming up with a constructive argument for your beliefs.

As for whether children use these forums or not, I really don't know, all I know is that they can, and besides it would be nice to introduce these forums to kids as an effective way for them to comment on and review films they have seen, in this case a film very much targeted at a younger audience,

Fair enough - but if you were a regular user of these forums and also a regular contributer to some of the same discussions i am you would see that it is not the only way i express my opinion at all. My opinion on whether people should or shouldn't be allowed to swear on these forums still clearly differs from yours so let's just agree to disagree and let that be an end to it!

You would have swore Lucas and Spielberg raped someone the way some people reacted to a film that wasn't as good as they hoped it would be.

While I didn't hate the fourth one, I'm not exactly filled with an overwhelming desire to see another. 

I still think Last Crusade should have been the very last.  It ended perfectly.

It could be good, the aliens in the last film ruined what was otherwise a respectable sequel for me.

Purely instinctive reaction: Get the title right and all else follows.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull just sounded clunky, too many syllables, an 'and the' and an ' of the'
in the same title, just feels wrong. Just like Raiders of the Lost Ark now feels wrong with its now official title of Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark). The and the/of the adds clunkification. I had to make up a clunky sounding word to express the point.

Indiana Jones and the Bermuda Triangle, if that is being seriously mooted as a title, simply not 'Indy' enough

Whereas...

Indiana Jones and the Triangle of Fear

would manage to sound like an episode of the old serials Lucas is supposed to be homaging, it allows the Bermuda Triangle to be referenced but not too obviously AND hints at the tone of the film, also, it subliminally suggests a plot via which three parties form the three points of a 'triangle of fear' to build the plot towards a crescendo at the end...

and the largely seaborne setting (with I assume some island hopping) even allows contextual self reference like 'we're not crashing, we're sinking' (see what I did there, etc).

And, since there is a mystery concerning disappearances relating to the setting, there's scope to speculate on where things disappear to, and more importantly to the tone of an indy film, what threats may enter our realm to try and kill Indy...From other times/dimensions, ie anything from any time, any place...any armed foe, from any era...trying to get into our time/world...

A mysterious build up culminating in the usual conclusion: there are some things we are not meant to mess with...with the attendant deaths of all the seekers of power and the survival of the hero who realises just in time...there is a door to knowledge/power here...but its not one we're meant to open.


The basic schematic for the indies, including 'Skull IS that basic, but the thing the previous film got wrong was in not making its set pieces both totally stand alone and increasingly perilous in increments. The waterfall stuff was a gag too far, pretty much beyond all credibility, even for an IJ film and even if people didn't like the whole 'escape the nuke by hiding in a fridge' thing, had that been the ending and built up to, it would have been preferable to having such a spooky out there preamble to the boom at the opening that the rest of the film never stood a chance of achieving that 'ghost town' level of ''what's happening, this is a bit scary' again.

The abject lesson is you END your film with your biggest bang, you don't START it that way.

Anyway, blah, blah blah, whatever...Indiana Jones and the Triangle of Fear...

Starting a movie with the biggest bang instead of ending it didn't exactly ruin Empire Strikes Back *

*can't think of another example apart from Superman Returns and the space plane rescue bit.

It's possible to argue that 'I know' and 'I am your father' were bigger bangs in Empire than the actual fireworks.

To match the comparison, a nuke at the start would have to imply something even more explosive at the end in character terms. Skull didn't have it. It tried 'I'm your father?' though, didn't it?

As for SR...I know people like it, but I'm not one of them, and that also had the 'I'm your father?' twist for the main character.

In both the latter cases, a hero finding out he's a father, and in both cases a film with its defenders but one that for one reason or another is more often described as one that simply didn't deliver the goods requiring any follow up to be made from a revitalised blueprint to make up for perceived failures, assuming such a follow up is ever mounted.

Oh, they should do a story about Indy getting sucked into the Bermuda Triangle to find a lost artifact on a hidden island with all wrecked ships and planes etc and he has to fight a troop of Nazis that set out in the 40's to find this thing and they're still there thinking Hitler is still alive and the war is still on because haven't aged that much etc etc...

Good god, my grammar is terrible. You'd never think part of my day job was actually pitching stories to people.
