    inb4 "cant be worse than Indy 4"

    Indy 4 wasn't bad. Can't say Indy 4 was bad and give Indy 2 and 3 a free pass.

    It really does look like Disney is trying to buy up as many IP's as it can get its hands on

    Indiana Jones primetime drama coming to ABC fall 2015, starring someone who's not really a good fit for the role but the show'll last 5+ seasons regardless.

    You kinda can if you have grounds to say so. Indy 1, 2 and 3 were based on the 1930'ties action adventure serials... while Indy 4 was based on 1950'ties B-Movie Sci-Fi flicks fused with the previous idea. It was an experiment that some people may like and others may not, the premise is very different.

    Off Topic: Just a friendly correction. 1930's instead of 1930'ties :)

    On Topic: I don't think it has to be a bad thing that Disney has bought it... And I have to say I liked the adventure / mystery theme of 1, 2 and 3, rather than the sci-fi theme of 4.

    Indy 2 (Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom) was freaky; I'm glad one and three were, well, regular. And I saw the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and really liked it. Speaking of which, I still need to buy that one. (Also thinking of picking up Lego Indiana Jones 2 :unsure: ) But anyway; why the hell is Disney buying out LucasFilms? And they couldn't make another Indy film anyway since Harrison is way too old. It's been almost a decade since the last Indy movie. And, um, not to sound picky or anything, but they really can't replace him. Just like they can't (successfully) replace Christopher Reeve with someone else. It's called fanboyism (I swear I've heard this somewhere before...)
    Nooooo, are you fkcing serious? :cry: noooooooooooooooooooooo.....................

    Pretty sure it's same difference as long as the idea is conveyed, unless it's on an official document in which case I would apply your spelling. :P

    Is it a hipster thing to like Indy 4 now?

    Because that movie was really shit. Not that Temple of Doom is great but Raiders of the Lost Ark is like one of the best films ever made and Last Crusade is a pretty great movie as well.

    If I'm a hipster, then yes. And everyone thinks Temple of Doom is creepy; there is seriously something wrong with the person who does like it.

    It's not really the creepiness that kills Temple of Doom. It's just a combination of being a bit too silly and also having a godawful sidekick (not Short Round but Willie). It just doesn't really recapture the feeling of Raiders.

    An even friendlier correction: 1930s doesn't require an apostrophe. It's like saying "thirties", but using actual numbers to convey it. You just have to think of it this way: would you say thirtie's, or thirties?

    On topic: Good god Indy 4 was a bad movie, and shame on you if you think it's good. The world doesn't collectively shit on something because, you know, it's okay and just a little bit different.

    I meant in terms of people complaining that the movie is so unbelievable, like the nuke/fridge.

    But yet go back and look at the older movies, they're just as ridiculous, but that's what makes them awesome. I love Indie 4, if anything, I would put my order in Indie 1, 2 , 4, 3.

    Mr. Plinkett would like to have a word.

    And honestly, who cares? The franchise is in better hands with Disney than with George Lucas; at least there's a chance that Disney will entrust it to somebody who cares.
