Re: Is Indy Jones IV Any Good?

How's things? In a complete oddity, I managed to somehow finish all of my work of the day at like 3:30 p.m. It was a moment so stunning that I went outside and sat in the bench in our backyard for a good ten minutes, staring out across the field of grass and wildflowers.... then I came back in and found more work to do. Moment killed.

Oh, in case you missed it. Here is the comment I left in your Indy night note question:

I thought it was fine, and that it fit nicely into the canon. Not as good as the first two, but better than the third. Why all of the hate? Here's my theory:

A lot of people are comparing the latest movie to their memories or the overheard nostalgia of the first three movies. The fact is that the Indiana Jones movies, which I love, are all a bit over the top, silly and nonsensical. But when I, for one, watched them starting when I was 12 or so, I was in awe of what I saw. Watching through them a second time with Tristan recently, not so much. I still loved them, but they were much better in my memories.
