By the Cheese, Awesome Indiana Jones-Scrubs Ref!
watching that (horrible) Indy movie, I couldnt take the Janitor seriously as an FBI guy. I kept expecting him to break character back into the Janitor when Indy called his bluff a la JD.
Janitor? That’s Dr. Jan Itor to you.
You, sir, Have won.
Wait, Neil Flynn is in The Crapstall Skull? Might have to watch it just for that.
I purposly didn’t see the movie because I thought there were no redeeming characteristics.
I was obviously wrong.
I like what you did there. Just in case we couldn’t infer from your post that you don’t hold a high a opinion of the movie (having never watched it) you decided to insert the word ‘crap’ into the title. That’s… that’s goddamn genius, there. You’re like a modern-day Einstein, only on the internet, with movie titles.
(You know, all this thinking has given me an idea. Were you disappointed with the Transformers movie? Well, next time you mention its name on a forum, why not call it… Crapformers! I based the name off of your original idea, hope you don’t mind.)
Actually, I think the “Crap-stall” was a direct reference to a bathroom, and thus the janitor they were just talking about. Making it at least a bit more creative than the average “stick random negative words into titles” schtick.
It might not have been such a bad movie if it was anyone besides LaBoof (sic).
Kumata. I love you and your funniness. Don’t ever change.
I didn’t even notice him or could remember that he was in that terrible cash in. This golden.
I actually liked Crystal Skull, LaBeouf and all. Not as much as Raiders or Crusade, but I appreciated that it was trying to do something new.
I’m a big 1950s sci-fi fan, which made it a lot easier to swallow.
I thought I was the only one… But, I tend to find redeeming qualities in a lot of movies nobody else likes. And Vice-versa.
You know, people poke fun at it for the fridge scene, and the inclusions of aliens and psychics and… I’m like, “Um, you do realize it’s based on fifties pulp fiction right? Just like how the other three were based on FORTIES pulp fiction?”
I mean, seriously, it’s SUPPOSED to be ridiculous. It’s a loving homage to everything awesomely, gloriously, manfully cheesy from old-school genre fiction. That’s the ENTIRE point! Really, it is.
The reason Crystal Skull had more scifi elements (in contrast to the more fantasy-like first three), is that post-WWII pulp fiction was way more scifi-heavy compared to the pre-Red Scare fiction. And the reason it was 50s-style pulp, is they had to have a plausible reason why Indy was, you know, OLDER. I actually appreciated that they didn’t try to hide the fact that Harrison Ford had aged, and they sure as hell didn’t recast it; instead, they wrote the plot around it, using the same actor for the same role he was perfect in, in a believable way.
Of course, really, Nazis are way more fun to see Indy battling, which IMO is why it isn’t as good as the first three, especially Last Crusade which has always been my favorite… but for me it was still enjoyable for the pulp it was always supposed to be.
Glad to see some people agree with me. Sure, it wasn’t as well-executed as the others, but Crystal Skull was a perfectly good movie.
aliens are too ridiculous
indy should be about a box that opens up and melts people as angels fly everywhere
This is my favorite out of them all so far
