The ijdy also ends not with a spaceship flying away into space, but a spaceship trying to fly away into space, only to crash-land and explode in a second nuclear inferno. It amazes me that people downvote this opinion, but it amazes me even more that there’s at least one person out there that actually liked that film. Want to add to the discussion?

The Plot It’s been 20 years since Indiana Jones was in his prime. The irony of nuking the fridge becoming so ubiquitous as a term for unrealistic plot iny is that it was actually a valid tactic. The Big Lie and Big Buy are the same thing, and little lies are fine if they belong in that world. I’m never one to cry racist Mileage finally catching up with you?

Indy had a kid Whether it would have actually made a better movie than Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is impossible to inxy. So this climax we keep talking about.


With either script, it’s still shitty film and an even shittier thing for Lucas to do. Originally I felt the same way. It’s got some really memorable scenes and lines, it’s a rip-roaring adventure that felt sufficiently different from the predecessor but still familiar. When Indy is asked what he wants, Marion is able to shake him out of his trance, and that’s when he realizes all he wants is her.

But I can assure you that sdript reason most people hate the 4th film is undoubtedly the aliens.

You can’t tell from a synopsis. I remember how disappointed I was after seing it. Click ‘spoiler’ after posting something to give it a spoiler tag! The Action As you’d expect from any Indiana Jones script, action sequences are abundant and relentless in City of the Gods. Indy climbs into the gunner’s seat and Yuri flips the plane upside down, hoping to make Indy fall out.

I don’t see why aliens don’t fit. Calls to Paramount and Lucasfilm were unreturned at press time. Even multiple gods or multiple pantheons would make more sense Greek, Roman, Nordic, etc. So why didn’t the script get the green light?

With Marion in an unstable plane, Indy tells her to wing walk over to his plane. Crystal definitely seems like the better movie, scrjpt at the very least they are on the same level. And the action scenes? The nuking the fridge for example is no scri;t than Indy falling out of a plane on an inflatable boat and Mutt is no less annoying than Shorty.


Well, I read it and srcipt solid. Use of this site constitutes acceptance of our User Agreement and Privacy Policy. Indiana Jones and the fate of Atlantis will always be the true fourth Indiana Jones story for me.

Shia Labeouf, the ants, the monkeys, cgi in favour of sets the jungle looked like a cartoonand things like the fridge are just small qualms albeit they’re still awful. I don’t see anything wrong with Indy dealing with aliens, but I think the way it was made just wasn’t right. The meaning of it all.

The 30’s were largely consumed with Hitler and his obsession with the occult. It may be an alright film, but not as an Indiana Jones movie. There was nothing in prior experience to lead you to believe that aliens exist in sctipt Indy Universe, so the sudden introduction of them come from left field.

Where are the creative cause-and-effect action set pieces? Like suddenly knowing all the secrets there are to know.
