Already Speilberg is apparently already talking about making Mutt the star and Indy being a background character.
He means just more of the same as this movie then.
(Meaning that I wont be bothering with the next "2nd being the darkest of the new trilogy as per GL/SS tradition" effort which will be garbage due to over CGIing and the inclusion of Shia LeBooooof and the non inclusion of any good writing talent, if this is an indicator..)
Well, I have to say I think it reaches that. Let's not put Last Crusade and Temple of Doom on a pedastel here. They weren't great. Just good. This belongs among them (I have no business placing them in order).
If they were merely "good", then that lessens my respect for the new movie proportionally and therefore i'll have to reclassify it as "Total garbage from the waste bin of the biggest hack in hollywood" to have an accurate barometer for the relative qualities.
This is an Indiana Jones for fans of Speilberg/Bay's Transformers.
It works like that because I wasn't casting judgement on your liking/non-liking of TFs. You ignored this and proceeded straight to hystrionics.
But what I WAS saying the audience that is likely to put up with the diminishing of the things they loved before for the newer but hollower, shinier, faster camera movements version does seem to be the majority these days. As exhibited with Transformers, another spiritless braindead movie that looked flash and had the advantage of having Speilberg's promotional machine whip up the audience into a frenzy before its release selling it as one thing, while delivering quite another.
That is the crowd who will eat up anything with speilberg's name on it and lap it up, garbage or not.
Im sick of inferior rehashes.
