    Kids today...

    I'll tell you though, Spielberg knows how to make money. He knew what he was doing when he cast LeBouf, who is now a big box office draw.

    Shia LaBeouf's rise to stardom has been a surprise, to me at least. I remember fives or six years ago seeing him on Disney's Even Stevens and calling him Ben Savage Lite. Now I'm weeks away from buying his action figure.

    I recall seeing him about that time as well, on Leno. My brother and I remarked on how mature and actually funny he seemed for a teen. We commented that we hoped he'd go on to good things. Haven't actually seen any of his recent films, but in general I am well disposed towards him. So I hope he's great as Mutt :)

    He was hilarious on Even Stevens. He also put in a rather good performance in Disturbia.

    Haven't seen Disturbia yet, but I agree that he was great on Even Stevens. I used to watch that show just to laugh at him.

    Its a pretty decent remake of Hitchcock's Rear Window.

    Hmm, yea, I should probably check that out.

    On another note, I just found an article that says that Indy IV's running time is supposed to be 123min. Hopefully that'll be 123min. of goodness that won't disappoint. ;)

    Cool. Not too long or short. Good time.

    I was kind of mad about Disturbia, but just because all the young people were like, "Woah! Great idea!" and I was just like, "WATCH REAR WINDOW!!" It might be good, I just hate it when people never care about the film something is based on (if the original is already good).

    I have seen both and I enjoy and respect both films for different reasons. I thought the Disturbia take on Rear Window was well done.

    Yeah I know. But I have heard Disturbia was good so I might see it. There are some good updates and re-takes of films. Not many, but some.

    Indiana Jones is great because not only is he an American icon, he's a global icon, and I am extremely proud of the work Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford have done in bringing such an iconic character back to the silver screen.

    Thanks Barack. Are you going to have time to go see it, though? Also, I can only assume you are ok with a new Mutt Jones series, as it would be CHANGE

    If it wasn't for George Lucas Spielberg might have gone on to direct Never Say Never Again instead of Raiders.

    Whew, we dodged a bullet on that one. Bond is fun, but Indy is beyond.

    Just wanted to say I posted something in the banner thread. I know new posts in stickies can go unseen for a while.

    Also, Indy 4 is going to be awesome. Thank you.

    For the 19 years since Last Crusade, it better be. :p It doesn't get much better than that movie.

    Have you read the USA Today article with HF commenting about his role as Han Solo? He doesn't seem to appreciate the character too much. Curious. I wouldn't consider Han 'dumb'. In fact, there are some aspects of Han's character that I like better than Indy. Anyway, they're both great characters, and I'm sure Indy4 will be very good. I just don't like it when actors diss roles that bring them great fame & fortune. It sounds petty. Maybe it's just an ego thing. Indy is his role, and Han was just another cog in the machine.

    Actually, it's funny that you should mention that. I honestly see Han and Indy pretty much as the same character except one is in space and the other is from our place and time(or roughly :p ). I can understand why he leans more towards Indy as that is the role that really made his name well-known, but I don't think it's fair to say that Indy is more complex than Han. There's just too many similarities.

    Although, regarding the bit about him trashing SW - that's just one of those things that has been misinterpreted for far too long. Sure, he's not a fan of the series and he'd rather have other roles above Han, but he totally respects what it has done for his career and is happy that he was a part of it.
