Indiana Jones and the Crushing Disappointment

Well. That was a waste of money.

When you’re watching a film and keep thinking: “Wow. That’s a great bit of production design,” then there’s something seriously wrong.

Go see Iron Man instead. It has an actual honest-to-god story, that makes sense, that shows and doesn’t tell, has a subtext, and just as many things go boom.

Also, Robert Downey Jr and Gwyneth Paltrow. So you’re covered whichever way you incline.

    Unless you actually are a production designer, of course. God, ever since I started this stuff I can’t watch a film in peace. I’m always checking out the sets no matter how gripping the script is.

  2. Oh dear. Oh dearie dearie me. Pensioners with whips. Illegitimate offspring. Cartoon Russians. Cliche grey Roswell aliens. Chariots of the Gods. Impossible survivals after falling down waterfalls. George Lucas dialogue. Need I go on?

    I thought Karen Black was looking pretty foxy for a near-pensioner though.
