Indiana Jones sucked. A lot.

Seriously. It's really bad. It's almost Uwe Boll bad. If George Lucas lived in Tampa I'd be egging his house right now instead of typing this post. Put in Lucasian terms, this makes Episode One look like American Graffiti. The story was contrived even by Indiana Jones standards, and not in the fun, campy style of the rest of the series.

Let me be clear here. I'm not a harsh movie critic (Terminator franchise notwithstanding). I'm not the guy who hates everything and enjoys talking trash about every movie. I'm generally very easy to please when it comes to movies. I'm easily amused, and can usually turn my brain off and just enjoy a good brainless action/adventure flick. This movie made me mad. I feel like I've been duped and insulted.

The best things about seeing this movie were getting to hold femetal's hand, the hot chick in the short miniskirt two rows behind us, and some brief banter amongst the victims audience members. Oh, and my Twizzlers were fresh. The best thing that was actually on the screen was the trailer for Hancock.

BTW, there's nothing extra after the credits, so there's no point sitting through them except for the signature John Williams music. There's not much worth sitting through before the credits either.

EDIT: For the record, I'd gotten an SMS message from zensidhe letting me know that he hated the movie, but I had not read his post when I wrote this one.
