JOvan said it right: they found it too earlyu, we found out way to early what the deal was and in the end, you shouldn't reallye xplain too much wehat it really is... The trick about a McGuffin is to lose it somewhere during the ride.

The Ark, a whole lot of stuff going on, but we only find out if it's real or not in the end... and then we get sand... and it gets locked up as a mystery. We still don't really know what it is or what makes it tick. It comes down to saying summin' like real great power doesn't succumb to greed.
Same with the Sankara stones: Indy seems to get it but only on an existential level: doing good makes life better.
The Grail: fair enough: poor cup, gives eternal life but with enormous limitations. In the end it's not about the Grail but about the leap from the lion's head: faith.

The Crystal Skull: we get the lot explained to us. And from very early on. There's not much left to discover for the rest of the movie, and then at the end... we get the rest. THey forget to ditch the McGuffin. Hitchcock would turn in his grave.

I really liked Raiders Of The Lost Arc, The Temple of Doom would come in at a close second though

Well Archaeology is all well and good round these parts, being Jones related.

Maybe future archaeologists will wonder WTF happened to the human race's collective creative psyche in the early 2000s when they hear this:

Yes. It genuinely was the theme to "ST:Enterprise".
Not even having Scott Bakula as Captain Archer could save it after that.

sad sad sad

I mean...WTF. Its so Un-Star Trek feeling...

Yep. Horrific, wasn't it...?

Coincidnetally there was no more Star Trek after that until the Abrahams movie later down the line.

Yes I know that.

I bailed out after series one of TNG myself. Never saw much of Deep Space Nine or Enterprise.

The 1st season was the worst of all seven seasons. Holy shit, try watching on from season 2, and you'll get the full benefits of the series.

They're all on YT.

I saw some of the other series as well... I saw Whoopi Goldberg arrive and stuff. Trek is just not my thing. I did like the Borgs though... good enemies.

When prices drop I'll prolly get the original series on blu ray though.
