You just couldn't let me be excited about it, could you?

Courtney said...

I've arrived at the conclusion that George Lucas just sucks now, period. He made good movies in the 70s and 80s but has completely lost his touch.

That said, I didn't hate the movie as much as you did. It was bad, but not THAT bad.

Jacob said...

I haven't seen many negative reviews, but thanks for the warning. I don't know if I would have bothered with it in the theaters anyway.

em said...

Kind of a bummer that it was so bad...now Sex and the City next Friday...that is going to be KILLER!!

You know you love it.

sid said...

I agree!!!!! You're my hero for saying this. I hated it too. When I was younger the movie kept me in suspense. The latest one was really, really lame.

nancypearlwannabe said...

Meh. I disagree. I enjoyed it. But, uhh, really, who cares?

Mickey said...

krisha- Yup.

julie- That's what you get for reading my blog. I'm a buzzkill.

courtney- Most people seemed to enjoy it.

jacob- Netflix it.

em- Yeah. Can't wait.

sid- Thank you for agreeing. I was sure everyone would feel the same way, but people I talk to mostly liked it.

npw- That's why I didn't spend much time on this post. Just a movie. Glad you enjoyed it, though.

Alexa said...

now i saw it last night and i was just pissed about the whole sci fi turn it took, oh well.

surviving myself said...

I'm still gonna go see it.

I have to. I just have to.

Allie said...

Aw, that sucks! You totally saved me the ticket price though. Maybe it's a renter. I trust your judgment on that one though. I feel like we get annoyed at similar things.

I already commented about the same topic on Courtney's blog, but that photo on the right kind of creeps me out!

Mickey said...

alexa- Yeah, the plot was no good from the start, and it just got worse from there.

sm- Yes you do. I would have said the same thing.

allie- Yeah, just rent it.

meaghan- How so?

Matt said...

agreed 100%. Somebody needs to be punched in the face for this one...

J-Money said...

YES. M. Night Spielberg really pissed me off. I enjoyed the part before Shia LeBrando rolled up on his bike, dipping his comb in other people's sodas and flying through the woods like George of the Fucking Jungle.

Other things I hated: Animated prairie dogs, that Indy didn't suffocate inside that refrigerator even though a very special episode of Punky Brewster warned that we would all IMMEDIATELY PERISH if we ever tried such a stunt, overwrought Russian accents, the fact that the skull was only magnetic when it wasn't covered with a blanket, and THE ENTIRE SECOND HALF OF THE MOVIE.

Things I liked: The theme song, fedoras, Shia LeBeowulf getting thwacked in the balls with plant life, and the 48 pounds of Sour Patch Kids consumed during the film.

Hrrmffph.

Mickey said...

matt- Yes. Thank you.

j- This is why I didn't bother writing a review: I knew someone like you could do it better. And funnier.
