The new Indiana Jones movie is called...
Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
Sounds like they stole that from House 2. Not the name but the whole plot of House 2 revolved around a crystal skull and an alternate dimension in said house.
Alex. I hate you so much.
Unless this "crystal skull" is Hitler's crystal coated skull that's being protected by an underground sect of robo-Nazis hellbent on world domination and eternal life,
I'll have nothing to do with this film!
This one is suppose to be in the middle of the cold war, was there anything historical that Mother Russia was looking for back then?
Wait, did I just hear no Nazis?
NO. FUCKING. NAZIS?!
I'm going to approach this movie as if it's a rabid grizzly bear with AIDS that I have to fight with a stick.
Very carefully and totally unsure if I want to survive the attack or not.
Who is there to blame for this? I'm going to cry myself to sleep.
It might be hard to do Nazis if it's supposed to be set in modern times (or the future) as I've heard.
The problem isn't that "secret modern-day Nazi conspiracy" isn't doable; indeed, pulp does it all the time. ...which
is the problem
, because everyone would be like "oh, look, Nazis
. What part of Hitler did they save
Also: meh. Part of the problem is that we've waited almost twenty years for The Fourth Indiana Jones Movie, and at this point nothing can satisfy us. Indeed, we've waited longer for Indy 4 than we waited for Star Wars I...
Regardless, the title and they way it was revealed to us proves that there is no god, and therefore, 'Pascal's Wager' can be disregarded. Dave, you have to choose another favorite famous arithmetician's religious theory now.
Fuck the modern day conspiracy theory. Just, set it in the time of Nazis. Call them terrorists if you must to get cheeks in the seats, but for God's sake, have Nazis.
Perhaps it's Indy's 15th wedding anniversary.
Oh for heaven's sake. Have none of you heard about the crystal skulls? The first one was found in some ruins in Belize, and the legends that have grown around it have swollen to include the notion that the Belize skull is but one of several scattered around the world, all of which have mystical powers.
Kinda like the Dragonballs. OH SHI
It's too bad that comparisons will be drawn to
, which also dealt with crystal skulls, however that dealt more with evil Chinese/Mongol pirates than steamy jungles.
So in terms of location it sounds like we might be headed for Central America, not
far removed from the Peruvian locale of the beginning of
Raiders of the Lost Ark
. And we all know who went to South America after the war, right? Nazi war criminals, that's who!
But I wouldn't mind Commies either. Nazis are, truly, old hat at this point.
Eh, I won't bother judging it until I actually see it, even if things don't look good, but hey, Metroid Prime, Zelda, Die Hard 4, all assumed to be bad, so well, we'll see.
I get it! Old
...that was supposed to be a joke, right?
Although part of the problem with
having Nazis is that you lose the whole "Hitler was obsessed with the occult" angle.
Hm, it occurs to me that I have now made arguments both
having Nazis be the villains...
I guess what I'm saying is that I don't mind having the villains be Nazis, but "the bad guys? THEY'RE THE NAZIS!" won't exactly blow everyone's socks off.
I don't think there were Nazi's in Temple of Doom, just crazy Indians.
Correct, the Thugee cult.
It also had Short Round...I don't know which was worse.
"No time fo love, Daktah Jones!"
[quote="RobotBastard"]What part of Hitler did they save
I hope you aren't hating on True Stories of the Rifle Brigade (which did have a story arc with Hitler's missing testicle as a macguffin).
Oh uhhmm , I would just like to confirm . Is Justin Timberlake going to be in this one ? Because I've heard some bad rumours that Timberlake was going to be Indie's son
I thought Shia Labeef was his son?
Shia The Beef is in the film, but I'm not so sure he'll be Indy's son. However, Karen Allen, who was Indy's love interest in Raiders of the Lost Ark, is signed on the the cast of Crystal Skull.
If you'll remember, we found Allen -- AKA Marion Ravenwood -- in her bar in Russia, so that's a pretty good clue that we'll be going back to the mother country.
Who knows? From the bare-bones info we have on the film so far, Spielberg might try to say that The Beef is Indy's son by his old flame Marion....
But she's terrible and annoying. I use her to reference terrible eighties female characters.
MARION! She is the best Indiana Jones chick. And eh, I can tolerate Shia LaDouche.
I wish she ate that bad date instead of the monkey. Oh the chimpanity!
