    I saw it at midnight. Not my favorite one... not even close.

    There were 2 scenes that shouldn't have even been in the movie. One action scene that went on far too long. And the movie felt like you were being walked thru it. As in the puzzles ect.

    The movie started out fantastic! I really enjoyed the begining, but then it seemd to just get "meh."

    The overall plot is interesting, but much of the general public will blow it off as a "come on now... seriously?"

    I give it a 7.5/10. I'm slightly disappointed in it.

    It seems that people either loved it or hated it, I guess it depends on how high your hopes were comparing it to Raiders. After 19 years, people are bound to be somewhat let down. I'll see it no matter what, I like the alien side to the story. Most people who didn't like it said the same things, that scifi shouldn't be in an IJ movie. Yet all the others had some scifi aspect to them, the new one is no different. I mean come on, the ark had ghosts coming out melting Nazi's and the Holy Grial had the ghost of a knight guarding it. Having aliens in the new movie isn't a stretch for me.

    I've just heard from numerous people that it sucked. It was thrown together too fast. The first 1/3 of the movie was great but then it all came undone.

    I'm seeing it tonight better and then will come back and share what I actually thought.

    seriously though. they could have made up something better. this was too much sci-fi. the others had to do with religion at least.

    the consensus from other boards is all the same:

    It starts great... fizzles out, becomes a yawn by the end.

    I've watched the first 3 dozens of times. If they come on TV I'll be sucked into watching them again. The crystal skull.... I've really got no wish to view again :(

    Right on... Everyone has the same feelings about this movie. Shia Lebouf doing Tarzan swinging, Alien ending, extra long action scene, crappy cgi, dude a nuke he survived a nuclear explosion. I don't remember him doing anything superhuman in the other films. He should have at least broken a hip lol. Movie could have been great minus the :WTF moments.

    The alien thing didn't even bother me that much, I'm willing to make that leap and go with it. What bothered me was the poor story, boring talky exposition scenes, boring action scenes where the stakes are unclear, big overuse of CGI, random stuff that had no reason for being in the movie (Atomic bomb, Monkey army), Harrison Ford obviously phoning it in, and the movie looking like crap (all that white diffusion). Other than these things, the movie was OK.

    haven't seen it, but right away I knew CGI was gonna ruin in a bit for me, they're going overboard with that shit in movies now, I feel like I'm watching videogame cut scenes all the time, older movies actually look better to me.

    That was seriously the worst piece of garbage I've seen in a long long time. I want my 2 hours and $9 back.

    Thought it was awesome, by the end I was wanting more. The only part where it got slow for a little bit was after he got fired from school. Other than that awesome movie. PS raiders was my least fav indiana jones movie.

    The aliens aspect was just the icing on the shitty ending cake :wtc:

    I'm so upset that they threw this movie together so poorly.

    5/10

    I give it a 7/10. aswell. Entertaining but a little over the top.

    And you have to remember Lucas loves his CGI and he had a nice influence on the flick too.

    Well. I'm going to see it Sunday with my stepdad probably...but I'll be going into it with no expectations other than Indy in his hat, and the theme music.

    Picked up the trilogy about a week or two ago, still need to watch Temple of Doom and Last Crusade.
