  • New Indy Jones Movie

    It will make a ton'o'money, but it is soooo exactly what-we've-seen-before. It's the Baby Boomers' edition of Indy. Everyone is old except Shia, whom I loved in Transformers but added NOTHING here. As an official old person myself, I'm getting tired (age?!) of being pandered to as though we oldsters were still young, as my generation continues to think it is. Get over yourselves, people! We're doddering old fools, who look ever MORE foolish pretending we're not old. Sheeesh! The use of stunt doubles for 65-year-old Ford was painfully obvious and it just didn't make any sense for him to even TRY and do the things the script said he could. I keep cringing every time he fell - I was sure a hip was gonna go any second. I liked the Indy series, but this one was actually kinda sad, like when boxers hang on too long and just get pummeled.

    Iron Man was 20 times better than this.

      yeah, sounds . . . uh . . . fascinating :roll:
      In You Don't Mess With the Zohan, a comedy from screenwriters Adam Sandler, Robert Smigel (Triumph the Insult Comic Dog), and Judd Apatow (Knocked Up), Sandler stars as Zohan, an Israeli commando who fakes his own death in order to pursue his dream: becoming a hairstylist in New York. Dennis Dugan directs.

        The WSJ did a recap of initial comments:
        * Richard Corliss in Time magazine: “smart, robust, familiar.” [Time]
        * USA Today: “Even with the ponderous dialogue, it’s hard not to have fun on this adventure, and it’s good to see that Indy, though slightly weary, still has the goods.” [USA Today]
        * Entertainment Weekly says Harrison Ford is “terrific — and re-energized” but adds that the film “threatens at times to crumble under the weight of all the impersonal zigging and zagging loaded on for the sake of special effects.” [Entertainment Weekly]
        * Reuters: “Charmless.” [Reuters]
        * New York Post: “On a satisfaction scale, it lands squarely between ‘The Temple of Doom,’ and ‘The Last Crusade.’ ” [NY Post]
        * Los Angeles Times: “It avoids being an anticlimax and is entertaining in its own right.” [LA Times]

          Inflating post counts by propping up your own dead threads by replying to your own posts?? That's reminiscent of that tafnut guy who used to overpost here . . . .

          :lol: :wink:

              Well, at the time there was exactly one non-Marlow post, that coming about 90 minutes after he created the thread. Not exactly the most hyper-active post around here.

              But I will do my part: Alan Webb - Winner or Loser??

                    I actually LIKED that one! Connery has been bald going back to his later Bond days, it's OK. (he said, blatantly padding his post count total! :roll: )

                    Hey bad hammy, I thought you had given up on us - weren't you gone for a while? :wink:

                            Yeah, I saw you beating that dead horse again. I see that your transmogrification was not a progression towards enlightenment . . . :P
