This ruined Indiana Jones forever.
I'm not just talking about any possible future movies.
I'm talking about the previous ones too, the whole thing is ruined by this crap.
Raiders is my favorite film of all time, so imagine how happy I am with this.
I remember posting on imdb before skull came out that it looked like an awful idea, I predicted the ignorance of casting Shia, the awkwardness of shooting with Ford playing an old man, the weariness of setting this in the fifties, the stupidity of the aliens idea (yeah, I cracked the mistery of the skull before it came out, what a genius I must be right? That was such a super twist!).
So it had all the signs for being a bad project, and I posted my dissent.
But I got a barrage of criticism from the board on imdb saying that I was a naysayer and that it could be good, and if it wasn't, how was this gonna diminish the previous ones? Just skip it and pretend it doesn't exist.
Well, it's been 10 years since this disgrace of a piece of crap, and it does exist, and Indiana Jones is deader than Belloq in the movie world, and I blame this miserable piece of crap for that.
Without skull, Indiana Jones would be regarded as THE greatest film trilogy from the '80s, and a classic one, like back to the future, or even the matrix (with all its faults).
With skull, it's just another movie series gone awry with its protagonist and creators, like die hard or lethal weapon. What a shame, what a waste.
HOLLYWOOD LEAVE THE GOOD STUFF ALONE
