1 For me it boned with the Temple Of Doom. -- Submitted By: (TomPettyFan) on July 3, 2018, 12:40 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Spielberg says: Nuke the Fridge his idea; He hated the aliens, they were George Lucas's idea. http://www.empireonline.com/news/story.asp?NID=32315 -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on October 26, 2011, 5:58 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I tried to make sense of the convoluted backstory to Crystal Skull. 1) Pan-dimensional aliens come to earth thousands of years ago and educate primitive people. 2) These people happen to change the shape of their skulls (to emulate the aliens?) 3) We know the alien isn't dead (he's alive at the end of the movie), so for some reason the alien decides to split into 13 alien skeletons(?) and just sit around in chairs. 4) Some Spanish dude is apparently able to get in to the alien's pad (don't you need an alien's head to do this?) and decides to take one of the aliens' skulls, and the aliens let him do it. Apparently the Spaniard croaks and is cocooned with the skull (I think I missed the how or why here) and some guys sit around and guard the grave, but never return the skull themselves. 5) A completely different (albeit distantly related) race of aliens crashes at Roswell. The wreckage is witnessed by Indy and the Feds lock up the bodies at Area 51. Apparently others of this "type 2" alien are found around the world, and other Crystal Skulls (now where did those other Crystal Skulls come from, the type 2 aliens? Not the "Mayan" aliens, because those guys had all their heads.) 6) The Soviet Union forces Indy to steal the Area 51 alien, even though they apparently already have aliens of this type. 7) The skull is reattached to the crystal skeleton. For some reason this makes the 13 skeletons merge into one, living alien. They fry the chick's brain and then decide to go home for no reason after all those millennia. Ridiculous, isn't it? The mess of a plot far worse of a problem than the fridge scene, IMHO. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on January 11, 2011, 4:30 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Raiders of the Lost Ark - Classic Temple of Doom - Boned due to the uber annoying Kate Capshaw and "Short Round" Last Crusade - Un-Boned - Sean Connery...'nuff said Crystal Skull -Re-boned..in a big, big way -- Submitted By: (BrewMaster) on December 11, 2010, 3:47 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 The fourth movie sucked compared to the others. The fridge, shia lebeouf, the aliens... it's a joke of a movie. -- Submitted By: (cfc2011) on October 5, 2010, 8:23 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I voted for the Skull, but was hard pressed not to vote for the Fridge. This film was such a comedown from the first three. It was so silly. I loved "Live Free, Die Hard" (which came out about the same time and also had the original star team up with a younger hero). I wish that the Indy writers could have come up with a similar pairing that truly worked, and that they didn't resort to slapstick to try to keep their audience entertained. -- Submitted By: (LoriDavis) on September 13, 2010, 1:06 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 I agree with Andy. The first three films were homages to the serials of the 1930s right, and they were set in the 1930s. Due to the long delay between 3 and 4, some times has to have passed for the fourth one naturally. Thus, they are in the 1950s and the serials of the 1950s often had many aliens and paranoia of nuclear war. Hence, there is nothing too out of the Indiana Jones vain with the aliens and the nuking of the fridge. People are just nit picking there. That being said, the fourth one is still not on par with 1 and 3 but passable enough in my book. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on June 15, 2010, 1:01 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Come on. Why is nuking the fridge such a bad thing? Indy walked into a 50s structural effects test. It was funny. Besides, you could put a nuclear explosion into almost any movie and I'd like it. Nukes and aliens sort of make sense, since the setting moves from the 30s to the 50s, when the b-movies were full of nukes and aliens. And if nothing else, Crystal Skull is the one movie where I actually thought Cate Blanchett looked hot. A small detail, but significant, I think. But Shia LaBoeuf? Why does he keep getting put into movies? -- Submitted By: (AndyC) on April 3, 2010, 12:07 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 This is an odd series because the 3rd one was actually the best. The first was good, the second not so much, and then the third one rocked. I haven't managed to bring myself to watch the 4th one yet. -- Submitted By: (rainbowjane) on March 5, 2010, 1:56 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 tyork, I agree. Yeah, it does seem a little out there, with the "Nuke the Fridge", and the aliens and such, but so is some 800 year old knight and a cup that could give one eternal life, or some cult leader ripping out a heart with only his bare hands, and having it go up in flames as the victim plunges into a pool of molten lava, or some ark that, when opened, will make one explode or melt away. The CGI on Crystal Skull hurt it. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on February 28, 2010, 3:39 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 I could almost believe the fridge. It's Indiana Jones, it's not supposed to be believable! What got me was the use of the cheap, lazy, visible a mile away secret son plot device. I know Spielberg's films are littered with dad issues, but if they wanted to do that dynamic they should have brought Connery back. -- Submitted By: (tyorkshirelass) on January 27, 2010, 12:55 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 I don't think that "Crystal Skull" was an awful movie. It did, however, suffer from an overdose of CGI. Many of the sequences seemed to be as if they had been storyboarded by video game designers, so that it would be easy to convert them into the "Licensed Videogame" of the movie afterwards. In essence, it felt too much like a videogame, and not enough like a movie. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on August 4, 2009, 1:49 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
13 Raiders of the Lost Ark, Temple of Doom and The Last Crusade were all great movies. The "Young Indiana Jones" series was also good, I didn't think Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was the god-awful abomination everybody made it out to be, but it wasn't as good as the first 3 films, and it wasn't anything to write home about. -- Submitted By: (Johnny_T._Bird) on July 25, 2009, 8:39 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
14 Shoulda stayed a trilogy. A fridge that can counter a nuclear bomb? Come on. And Lucas, use CGI sparingly? Did any of you really believe that? He's ADDICTED to the technology! If you watch Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith, you'll see the only things which were not CGI were the live action cast. He even remade the classics so he could add CGI to them (as in Jabba the Hut talking with Han Solo). Lucas, use CGI sparingly? Hah, hah. That's as believable as Gordon Ramsey saying he will be using no swear words on his next episode of Hell's Kitchen. Anyhow, this show boned/nuked with the Crystal Skull. Leave the trilogies alone. Seriously. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 3, 2009, 11:37 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

17 The series is good, however, it took too long to make a 4th one. Crystal Skulls was good but the CGI in this (and many other movies) looks very fake. They should have used real monkeys and snakes and the gophers were unnecessary. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on April 5, 2009, 6:41 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
18 I've submitted the CGI gophers from the beginning of Indy 4 as a reason- going into Indy 4, I didn't know what to expect, but I was encouraged by rumors that they were using minimum CGI so that it would fit the atmosphere of the previous 3 movies. The unforgivably fake-looking CGI gophers that appear almost immediately are an ominous sign of the absurdity to come, and when they show up AGAIN to do a goofy, cartoon-style double take, it becomes obvious that Lucas and Spielberg have lost their minds, all bets are off, and this movie is going to suck. Nuking the fridge just erases any lingering doubts. -- Submitted By: (Hanglyman) on April 3, 2009, 12:48 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
19 It had some bad moments, but I liked Crystal Skull, if not for just nostalgia's sake. -- Submitted By: (rick283) on April 1, 2009, 7:56 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
20 I did it. Last night I wasted two hours of my life watching a starship troopers remake also known as Crystal Skulls. This was just plain out silly. From nuked fridges, to alien brains, to just crazy vine swingingness. I wonder who decided to make this garbage instead of a real movie? As long as you know this movie is just plain silly feel free to waste a few hours. -- Submitted By: (Hikariu) on March 23, 2009, 8:35 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
