The thing I don't understand about the aliens criticism is that Raiders and Crusade contain relgious nonsense which is far more unrealistic and is completely bias towards christianity (I still think they're great movies). Skull is still a weak film but the monkeys are far more offensive to me than the aliens


The monkeys or the aliens, it doesn't matter they're just easy targets to criticize - if it was a good movie people would probably not care.

I think it's mainly what the aliens and monkeys have in common - CGI.

With the monkeys not just CGI but bad CGI.

Indescribably bad. Some of the worst I've ever seen. I mean, I give Matthew Vaughn shit for the CGI in his movies, but X-Men: First Class is Jurassic Park compared to this.

But imagine if the film was a really amazing, worthwhile entry to the series - a few crap CG moments would mean a lot less.

That's a good point. Then the only complaints would be from the CIA (Cynical Internet Arseholes) who would scream "It's not old school enough." While everyone else would be having a ball

I consider Tintin to be the Indy 4 we should have had. Fucking love that movie, yet it's CG animated - with breathtaking quality, but still you get my point. It was closer to the spirit of classic Indiana Jones. In a way, I look at that movie as Spielberg's apology not only for Indy 4 but maybe Hook as well (look at that amazing pirate ship sequence).

No offence to hardcore Tintin fans by the way; he's still his own beast.

That it most definitely is not. It's a wonderful family adventure movie and just great fun

You, however, may think differently. I mean, we've disagreed on quite a few things (except Iron Man 3 )

TinTin is a terrible film.

You thought a CG animated movie directed by Spielberg, produced by Peter Jackson and based on a series of adventure comics was going to be 'a silly kids cartoon'? Are there many big budget 'silly kids cartoons' made by high profile film-makers these days?

It's a pretty average adventure movie, as with Indy 4 I'd have no idea Spielberg directed it without seeing the credits. The bigger shame is having a John Williams score that I instantly forgot. You'd probably enjoy it more without reading the original books though.

Well if Peter Jackson is involved, that would actually put me off as i cant stand the LOTR films.

And his King Kong remake is one of the absolute worst films iv ever seen.

Having just been accused of not being a Star Trek fan because I happily accept a lot of it is rubbish (still leaving hundreds of hours of TV and Movies) I wonder if people would agree blind devotion to a franchise, even one you love, is not healthy.

I've never considered myself a big Star Trek fan, and the thing I love about the Abrams movies is that they're more like Star Wars than they are Star Trek... but I appear to like some Star Trek stuff more than some Trekkies.

^ This!

TinTin bored me to tears! I couldn't quite believe Spielberg and Jackson would release something that bad (they must've been fans of the comic books as kids). The animation was somewhere between that of the original comic's, Toy Story and real life (whilst still suffering with the whole dead eye thing) which was not a good blend! It all went at 100mph and just seemed a bit over zealous to me and a bit too keen to impress! I also find TinTin incredibly annoying and he looks like a twat! These thing do not make for an enjoyable moviegoing experience........

on the original topic;
after seeing and coping abuse from crazy Whedon fanboys for disliking Avengers, i was straight up disgusted. i saw people getting death threats and worse for disliking this movie online. fucked up!

i will point out i have had the opposite experience as well. like the nolan hardcores, the anti blonde bond fans, hardline trek/wars fans, it's always the minority.
