  1. i actually really enjoy the movie, with all the issues aside. the good outweighs the bad for me. i know it's shit at times, but i don't care. but i'm also someone, who at times, enjoys the young indy series more than the movies...although might not be a fair comparison due the vast difference. i mean that's essentially what i mean when I say lazy. if you're going to back yourself into the 'aliens helped an ancient civilization trope' i'm not sure what purpose they can serve on screen besides leaving and killing the villain (which was super boring), like how the macguffins always do. anything involving aliens coming to earth (if not completely pulpy), should involve some suspense and mystery and it really lacked that in this movie. nobody gave a shit by the time they reached the temple with the aliens. it didn't have any suspense and not enough pulp.
  2. Believe me I have no problems with aliens being in the Indiana Jones franchise. But none of the previous movies 'insult' the intelligence of it's group of people/civilizations like that. (Although the temple of doom dinner scene.... might be some slight issues there lol) Look I don't think it was intentional to be insulting, I just think it's lazy "derrr they live deep in a jungle derrrr how else could they figure out agriculture and math derrr...must be aliens?!"
  3. Again, the only true issue with the aliens in this film is the implication that they helped the central and southern American civilizations with agriculture, science, ect ect. It's an actual disgrace to those people and archaeology itself. Lazy storytelling.
  4. I really like this score, but I don't really look forward to any specific cues like I do with the other 3. That said, what makes me enjoy this score is simply the nostalgia of the return of Indy back in 2008. The anticipation of KOTCS and the months leading up to it were so great as an Indy fan. Even if the film was a slight letdown, I still enjoyed it a lot. But yeah, any time i throw on KOTCS to listen to, it brings back those good memories.
  5. lol hey i was just doing a meme! i wasn't expecting all this math JAY IT'S JUST A MEME!!! although you're proving my meme works either way.
  6. Mutt to Indy in KOTCS: "What are you, like, 80?" Ford when Indy V comes out: "Yes"
  7. Edmonson crushed the first 3 games! I agree. But I absolutely LOVED what Jackman did with Nate's theme in 4. Really made it feel grounded (like the game) As far as the movie trailer, it looks alright. I'm with @Koray Savas as I thought they would be exploring more origins of the character and more 'original' material. I'm gonna take a wild guess and say the executives made a point to have those memorable action scenes from the games, in the movie. But I could be wrong. Those moments in the game are already so 'cinematic' and you're already immersed in the game itself/storyline, that it will be hard to feel excited for those moments in the movie. But I'm someone who's 100% all of the games on Crushing Mode lol. Also, very happy to see that they're having Sam in this game. He was one of the finest additions to the series, imo. Loved his character.
  8. poor dude had to start his own thread to recover.
  9. apparently not if Jay is hoping they come back. unless that means he's hoping for an apology, begging to come back, first
  10. politics (for better or worse) has snuck it's way into everything these days....even a film score board.
  11. they mean that political topics may have been 'banned' at the time, but were rarely enforced, only until a thread got way out of hand. now with these more enforced rules, those discussions don't even have a chance to get started.
  12. i've taken numerous breaks from this forum as well, (actually costing me some expansions, looking at you JAWS (2CD) . I think one thing that might limit any of my participation is the fact that i know little to nothing about musical theory, notes, ect ect. so my contribution to those threads can simply only be "i like that part" or "i don't like that part". Heck, there was a 'String Triplet' topic that I posted an example of, and I'm still not sure if it was correct. But my love for JW's music is enough to keep me posting here, and there is quite simply still A LOT of quality posters here, that I do look forward to what they have to write. Oh and the obvious fact as to why I keep coming here.....it's the only place in the world I can talk about this music and also make Stepmom jokes to jurassic shark (even though I actually like that score)
  13. Do us all a favor and don't fill this thread up with these stale as fuck TLJ opinions. Can't speak for crumbs but I'd doubt he'd want his topic and hardwork sidetracked like this. Take it to that dumpster fire of a star wars thread.
  14. good work, crumbs. makes me want to give TLJ another listen soon. Haven't listened to it all the way through in a couple years, honestly.
  15. i hope they release a 4cd version of Stepmom just for you
  16. thats crazy to think about too. but i was thinking more of what Ford's age was back in 2008 though. who could predict TWO 'old indy' films
  17. i mean that album cover photo could have EASILY been shot on October 31st.
  18. if you had told me the moment i walked out of the theater after seeing KOTCS, that the next installment would be in 2023...... i just wouldn't be able to fathom it. but here we are. wow.
  19. alright those Roman soldier photos are really something! Well if it's NOT a time travel film and they follow suit by NOT doing flashback scenes (without Indy), then it leads me to believe that it's a set piece on a film being made within this movie. And that could lead to some fun scene with Indy and whomever is after him. But maybe this movie breaks the mold and actually has a serious scene with flashbacks to that time period when discussing whatever history there is. I honestly don't know. But I'm so interested.
  20. i remember reading he used a body double for those though.
