Discuss about all things about this movie...

I thought it was the worst Indy movie ever. Not everything needs a blob of Industrial Light and Magic...seriously...you fail Mr. Lucas...

*too lazy to explain other issues with it*

I'm not too sure what to say about the movie, except the fact that if you want to watch this show, watch the Trailer.

It's more than enough.

I thought it was good. I mean, c'mon, it could have been worse! It could have been Attack of the Clones *shudders*
If I ever meet George Lucas, I am going to kick him square in the testicles.

No, it's just that I missed all the old Indy action... this one has so much CG it was Over-CGed <_<

It was a "fair" watch, but nothing big.

I found the movie somewhat less than mediocre mainly because i put pretty expectations because hey, its indiana jones. and george lucas ^_^;;
There are some (kinda few actually) scenes that were, should i say, indiana jones-like material especially the deus ex machina ending. (i didn't like the twist)
If the movie had a different title, it would be amusing since there would be not much expectations. But since they used this story for the indiana jones franchise, imo, it really doesn't fit. At all.
When I watch indiana jones, i expect clever traps and moar tricky situations and whip. THE WHIP. You can count on your fingers how many times he used his trademark whip. Also, it seemed they tried to squeeze in indy's fear of snakes in this movie too. That scene wasn't really necessary, i believe they could have thought of a better way to show indy's weakness to snakes ._.
However, I liked how Spalkow (the russian chick) looked like 8D She's hawt 8D Like a 3rd job fox hawt 8D rawr ._.

The movie seemed less "realistic" then the past movies. Some of the scenes reminded me of the movie from "The Mummy Returns", epecially the last big event.

I didn't watch it. However, I've heard that it's not that great and was a disappointment. D; I was going to watch it but after hearing the negative comments on it...

But yar i wasn't too thrilled with the ending.. but the action was there.. so it wasn't so so bad i guess. At least you people don't pay $10.25 a ticket just to see a movie..

I paid RM40 to get into the Gold Class theatre thinking this was a good movie...

I liked the reclining chair and blanket more than the movie, honestly.

It was ok but not like Sex and the City, The Devil Wears Prada, or 27 Dresses material (in my opinion).
That Russian chick was some stuff though. She was lolfail with a gun, but over dramatic with a sword.
Freaky stuff. :/

Why are you comparing Romantic(?) comedies to with an action (comedy?) like Indiana Jones?
