I really liked it, I don't see why some people hated it. I just wanted to see what other people thought of it.

The first five minutes or so and the last five minutes or so were kinda corny/weird, respectively. The parts in between were really great, though. I love Shia LeBeouf, and I have ever since watching "Even Stevens" like 7 years ago.

Call me crazy, but I liked it. The theme of the movie was the cold war, so the rather unique plot device worked for me. I thought I was going to hate Shia Labeouf, but he turned out to be a pretty good character. Harrison Ford is still a badass. 'nuff said.

I have not seen it yet, I have a projector television at my house, so I'm gonna save the 30 bucks for something I could really use (SMDTG set maybe) and wait till it comes out on DVD. But I think it looks good. I think it is really awesome that they overlooked Harrison Ford's age, and still got him to play the part, instead of just getting a fresh face. I mean, I can understand a new actor for his sidekick, but there is only one Indiana Jones.

It's not like that. I put lube on it and its the same. Its just stuck. And when I cock it back it goes farther back then usual. Also I push as hard as I can and it wont go back in. I've tried the methods and they wont work. Also pics are up.

Um, 30 bucks? The most you'll pay is 10$ for a movie ticket...

Well, it's a good movie, so I would take a friend, and there's snacks too. A hot dog and a soda costs almost $10. Yeah. Popcorn, $6, two tickets, $18. That adds up to, $35. When I do go see a movie in the theatres, I see it right. :P

I did not like it very much at all. Harrison Ford's acting was not as good as the first three films (although he is clearly still a badass, with stunts and whatnot). Shia Labeouf did well, for his character's role. Indiana Jones has been known to reach a bit in to the impossible regions, but this film went beyond that. It was too impossible, I think. Overall, it was a bit overdone, but it was enjoyable, and certainly not boring. I would wait and see it when its not $10 for a theater ticket. Its not worth that much money. I would borrow it from a friend once it's out on DVD. Take in mind, that's just my opinion....

$10 for a theater ticket.


Do all you guys really have to pay $10? If I can't get it for free with the help of my friend working at the theater, I only have to pay $6.25. I can't imagine paying $10.

I thought the movie was excellent! Perfect. The beginning was kind of corny with the fridge, but still funny. Also the aliens were a vital part of the story ( yes Bomberman Scotch did do a spoiler ). Who ever thinks that the aliens were stupid in the movie you need to brush up on on your Crystal Skulls theory's.

And to anybody who thinks it was too silly: it's called camp, and it's one of the things that makes a good movie.

Yeah it's awful. It used to just be $8.75 for a regular movie and like 6 for a matinee, but recently they've upped the prices. And Silencer is right, sometimes, depending on the movie, it can even get up to around $12.

I thought it was good except for the ridiculous bits like the parts with the fridge and the monkeys.

I thought it was pretty bad. Tree vine swinging, "Interdimensional" omnipotent beings with a giant ship in Brazil. I Mean, what the fuck. The fridge thing wouldn't work, my nuclear engineering friend at MIT told me. Monkeys attacking Russians and giant ants eating people. The people in the theater around me just gobbled it up tho.

BoOogers, I really though Ford's acting was spot on. I can't really think of any spots that he was off, at all. Ever.
The guy whose acting was horrific (partly because of a lack of lines in screenplay) was Jones's friend as the triple agent. I mean, we all knew that he wasn't really CIA. Even with the added support of the badass bitch seeming curious about the little devices he was dropping, it was not convincing at all.

I know the theories behind the skulls, but there are DOZENs that don't follow the path of "aliens put them here". I was personally hoping for an Atlantis getup. I think that that could have been done much better.

Why would you criticize Indiana Jones for being corny? The over-the-top cornyness is part of what makes Indiana Jones, Indiana Jones! Sure TONS of things were very impossible, especially the fridge thing, but that doesn't make it a bad movie!

You can't judge movies by their believability. Do you honestly think that Star Wars took place a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away? Can people that use guns in movies really fire 27 shots from a revolver without reloading? Can someone kill 18 people with an SMG that has a 15rd magazine while doing a back flip through a window? It is quite doubtful but still enjoyable. If you are going to watch action/adventure movies, you have to have that willing suspension of disbelief. Just my two cents.
