When a fan base has waited so long for another film to be added to one of the most beloved action adventure franchises in the world, it’s expected that fans would, and should be critical with the finished product. Before Steven Spielberg‘s latest foray into the franchise, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull; if you asked an Indiana Jones fan about the franchise they’d usually respond:
Raider of the Lost Ark, That second movie that I refuse to acknowledge, and Indian Jones and the Last Crusade.
Now the same question gets you:
Raider of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and that nuke the fridge movie that doesn’t really exist, it was just a bad dream.
Finally the guys over at Screen Junkies have taken on this steaming pile of drak and given it the Honest Trailer roasting it deserves. There are questions that needed to be answered:
Why were there aliens in Crystal Skull?
What’s with all the cheap-looking CGI when the franchise is known for its stellar practical effects?
Why is Shia LaBeouf’s nicknamed “Mutt”?
Why is he in this movie at all?
What’s with all the gophers?
