Indianocity

I saw Indiana Jones 4 last night. I had a great time. If you listen to the critics or eighty five percent of my friends that means I’m a retard.

I’m sorry but people need to lighten the fuck up.

Go back and watch the other Indy movies.

They are not cinematic pieces of art. They are summer fare made for the money pieces of cliched crap. Harrison Ford sweating in the temple of doom is NOT worthy of an oscar. It’s Romancing the Stone with a likable hero, that’s it. That’s all.

This sequal? Just as entertaining as the others.

Get off your handicap accessible horse and chill the fuck out.

  1. I’m with you on this one.

    My approach to seeing a movie is that I expect to be entertained for the next 2 hours – I don’t expect every movie to be stellar. Some might call that lowered expectations but so what?

  2. You are SO right. Bloody critics need to be able to tell the difference between a fun, romping movie and a deep, meaningful one. Maybe they should get new jobs, like rocket scientists, if they want to be so serious about everything. Idiots.

  3. don’t forget you are talking about steven spielberg, the best guy in town when it comes to this kind of entertainment.

    you are totally right, commentators agreement proves it (i agree, too), but still there’s a little ingenuity in what you say.
    the very reason why you feel the need to tell everyone around you to “lighten the fuck up” is definitely that the vast majority of entertainment-adventure-action movies of all times are unfortunately things like xXx, Constantine, The Fast and the Furious, Beowulf, 300, Underworld, Armageddon, The Mummy, etc – namely a type of NOT EXACTLY QUALITY movie that slowly but inevitably curbs people as little educated as 6-years-old’s enthusiasm for that sort of cinena down for good.
    whereas spielberg is a different kind of thing. what we have here is a professionist who devoted his life to that particular way of making movies. it’s known that his models where major guys like frank capra and john ford. so, we might say that entertainment itself is an empty word, entertainment wouldn’t even exist without guys like spielberg who are the actual ideal for all those who try and take advantage of the enthusiasm THEY created in order to make easy money with their crap like Bourne trilogy, Wild Wild West, movies taken from comics or their ancient relatives like many Bond’s movies, sci-fi follow-ups and many others that thanks god fell right into oblivion.
    if you pay too much attention to the genre you’ll miss the point, as it’s not how fond of a genre one might be but who’s the director.
