Thank you for the additional detail!

I am soooooo glad this isn't the way I watch movies!

I also like Willie Scott.

Willie's great. She's the audience surrogate. We'd all piss and moan the whole time, too.

And she is super helpful and tough by the end of the movie!

tougher than Marion! INDYYYYYYYYY HELPMEEEEEEEEE

I've definitely grown tolerate towards Willie, but they should have toned down some of the screaming.

Maybe Indy could have slapped her around a little!!

I will not stand for Marion Ravenwood being assassinated in this fashion!

The idea of Marion being the spunky tough as nails broad does kind fall flat towards the end where she's reduced to a damsel in distressed for the last 30 minutes. That doesn't really hurt the film, it's just what it is.

The real tragedy of Marion is how she's a total third wheel in CRYSTAL SKULL. I don't think she ever gets to do ANYTHING substantial.

WILLIE SCOTT REMAINS IN THE LEAD!!!

To be fair to Willie, the stuff she is presented with is generally worth screaming about.

This I certainly agree with. I'd rather she wasn't in the film at all.

The Darabont script is so much better about Marion. She feels like Marion. Not a sweet soccer Mom who's happy to be there.
Reply
That's one of the areas Darabont's is better, certainly.

My Janusz Kaminski fears appear real.

That thudding! I was sure Batman was going to show up.

Kind of a limp teaser, I have to be honest.  Was hoping for more of a glimpse of Virtuoso Spielberg here.

But maybe that's not in the cards at all.

Obviously I'll see it, but it's looking more like a "take Mom to a matinee when I'm home for Christmas" type of thing than a "there opening night" event.

Lush, vibrant colors went out with the Eisenhower administration, grandpa. You'll occupy this low contrast, desaturated hell and like it.

Honestly, the trailer is the first thing that's piqued my interest in this.

This is the one starring the guy who assaulted a minor? No wonder his name was left off the teaser poster.

That's my review.

I dunno gents I think Kaminski is actually trying here.

That's the most interesting shot, certainly.

I just want to see Spielberg bring it. He's wanted to make a musical for decades, and I'd like to be dazzled.

You love every trailer!  You're a trailer slut!!!

I'm a big fan of '80s and '90s trailers. I love a good voiceover narration!

In a world in which every trailer begins with a ponderously dramatic narration ...

Spielberg wins. Again.

Much love, Beardysteve.

I clicked on this thread expecting cracks at Kaminski and was not disappointed to see this was the first updated post.

It’s like ever since CRYSTAL SKULL he’s been Chud’s favorite whipping boy.

Maybe. But, not being a fan of his color desaturated, low contrast cinematography is pretty consistent. I've no issue with him on the likes of Bridge of Spies or Minority Report or Lincoln. And, yeah, it would be hard to be as vibrant as the original. Kaminski isn't a hack, but I think the material asks for something bolder.
