Guessing Shia's on the not-wanted list after he bashed the last movie and ticked off Ford and Spielberg in the process.

Harrison Ford has shown that when it comes to promoting a film, he's a real pro.  He went above and beyond on the promotional tour for THE FORCE AWAKENS.  And Shia?  Ugh.  He's done some decent acting work, but I think studios are really wary of him because of his behavior issues away from the set, the plagiarism scandal and his social media antics.

My chief concern?  I just want a solid story this time around.  And I hope that Spielberg learns some of the lessons that were learned from THE FORCE AWAKENS.  Notably, the blending of effects styles.  Because one of the biggest jump the shark moments of KotCS was that ridiculous vine swinging scene.  OMG, that was so f***ing horrible!!!!  And not just because the premise was so ridiculous, but because IT LOOKED BAD!  I know that people point to the "Nuke the Fridge" scene as being beyond implausible, but I will take that over the vine swinging scene any day of the week.

That's what happens when you do all the stuff on a computer instead of dragging a dude on a rope behind a truck.

Agree with this 100%. It is the only scene in the movie that I truly and fully hate. It's worse than Jar Jar being farted on.

I wasn't a fan of the giant ants or the jungle cutter contraption either. 

That whole jungle cutter scene includes the cutters themselves, a fairly dump sword fight, vine swinging, and ends with giant ants. 

The rest of the movie was decent, but this eight minute segment really drags the whole movie down for me.

If this movie doesn't open with a quick shot of the end of KOTCS and then Indiana waking up from a bad dream then the whole project is a waste of time.
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

Hey, Hasbro can release all the unmade Indiana Jones stuff from the previous toy line.

Yeah....right.  More like one wave of 5 POA figures based on the new film and some micro machines. :(

They've already released two bad sequels in a row; I guess one more's not gonna hurt.

I look forward to it.  I just hope Lucas has virtually no say.  He really trashed the last one.  I think he's gotten to the point he's trying to have the special effects tell a story instead of enhancing the movie.

Don't you remember?  IJ: ATLC and RotJ were both retconned into "bad" films "no one" likes to further the "I Hate Lucas" narrative.

It was good when I was a kid.  Watching as an adult, there are some pretty big flaws.  Most of the franchise characters become cartoonish caricatures, which is unfortunate.  Even Indy is buffoonish.

Bill said exactly what Matty was expressing.  Look at Marcus and Sallah at least.  Very unnecessary and nothing like their characters in Raiders.  At the beginning Marcus sort of plays a role like he does in Raiders but once he is integrated into the adventure later he becomes pathetic comic relief.  Take he and Sallah out, and you lose nothing and gain a lot.

I like TLC, personally, but yeah it's way weaker compared to ToD and RotLA.  For me I only hate Skull at this point and won't watch it.  Even it's figures kind of blow.

Comic relief in Indy should be somewhat limited.  Indy and his dad was plenty sufficient in TLC but they took it a step too far by dumbing down two secondary characters for no reason.
