Why did Indy4 suck.

Well, where do I start?

Firstly, the plot. I don't know whose idea it was with the 'crystal skull'. I'd like to blame George Lucas but somehow Spielberg might have something to do with it considering he also made the likes of A.I. and War of the Worlds.

Also, WTF is wrong with Indy being all monogamy and a good father? That's bullshit. The reason he was cool 2o years ago because he was misogynistic and self centered. He was cool because he didn't give a shit and he fucking loved trouble. (That's probably why Robert Downey Jr. was so likable in Iron Man.)

Indy 4 seemed like a shit with a hat on also because they put an outer glow on everyone. The special effects are like Branden Frasier as that geeky poet crying under the sunset in Bedazzled. Even if you don't understand I assume you can sense a hint of, what do you call it, shitness?

And Cate Blanchet's character should've been more competent as a villain. She carries a sword. That's it. THAT'S IT? WhoOooOooO. And not to mentioned she supposedly could read minds. Supposedly. All she did was running around giving orders and not dying. She didn't even inflict any damage on Indy.

It's an interesting movie. It's exciting, it's entertaining. But you kind of watch it and go home and then while taking a dump you'd realise 'that's a crap movie and I don't really remember a single thing and it didn't make any sense at all.'

Yeh, it's one of those movies.
