Indiana Jones Sucks, Still Rakes In Box Office Money

// May 25th, 2008

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull pretty much sucked. Bad CGI, crazy unbelievable stunt scenes, weak dialogue, and an ending with UFOs. Needless to say it was pretty much a huge disappointment to the highly eager Thursday night crowd at the Arclight. The move was met with golf-clap applause at the end, which mostly seemed out of pity or fondness for the franchise than for the film itself. Spielberg and Lucas have given us some of the greatest films of our generation, but this certainly wasn’t one of them.

Despite all that, the hype machine and marketing were strong enough to propel the movie to over $150 million over the 5-day weekend (wtf?), which begs the question: If filmmakers and studios can keep putting out crap movies that gross many millions in their openings, what’s to keep them from continuing to put out these horrible tentpole pictures??? We’ll all complain about how bad this movie was, but we all paid to see it, and at the end of the day, that’s all Paramount really cared about…
