Why the hell would a director(this is not the first time for George Lucas) tell everyone 'they' are going to hate his movie?
'Indiana Jones' creator George Lucas is dreading the character's return to the silver screen - because he is convinced everyone is going to hate the new movie.
...However, Lucas fears the movie could be a major box office disappointment as he believes reviewers won't give it a fair chance - because fans of the original trilogy are already upset at the decision to make a fourth installment.
He says: "I know the critics are going to hate it. So there's nothing we can do about that. They hate the idea of making another one. They've already made up their minds.
"The fans are all upset. They're always going to be upset - 'Why did he do it like this?' So you just have to stand by for the bricks and custard pies."
Alright GEORGE, first of all, you're an idiot for saying any of this to the public, second of all, it isn't because its 'another sequel,' or because its not 'what we want,' its because its another 'Lucas' crappy sequel, and we've been burned before. Also, its because its everything we DON'T want. It is because it doesn't make sense... Aliens man? In INDIANA JONES? What the hell is that? A perfectly good script by award-winner Frank Darabont scrapped, because YOU want russians instead of Nazis, and an Indiana Jones KID?
This is crap that is usual fare for the muck you've been churning out Georgie...we've seen it all before. I'm just surprised Indy,Jr. isn't a 12 year old who says crappy lines like "this is tense."
Its because we KNOW its going to suck, not because we've already decided that. Its because we've seen what can happen when you try to change and fix what wasn't broken, like a Darabont script, or old movies you made with new CGI.
Its because you can't stop fucking with shit, and making it worse. Its because you suck. Its because you've destroyed so much that we loved, and because you keep whining about it. You said this about Phantom Menace, you said this about Revenge of the Sith...first you say they're kids movies, then you say, no, "Revenge" is not a kids movie. First you say Indiana Jones is fun-action fare, now you say, 'Indiana Jones were never action films.' Bullshit. We know this means that you didn't put a lot of action in the new one. So what? But is the rest of it cool? Not likely when you put aliens and giant tree-cutting tanks, and Russians.
It sounds like crap because it sounds like crap, and if you can't figure out why, its because you never must have known what you were doing in the first place, or because the formula you made, is not the one we know...nazis, not commies, artifacts, not aliens, Indiana Jones, not sidekicks is what WE know, and we know now, your formula is about making as much money as possible no matter how crappy this makes the movie.
I haven't so much as DECIDED its crap, I'll say it looks like crap, but I'm not going to pay to see it jack, and that's that.
