    They might be trying to disconnect Henry Jones (Harrison's character) from the Indiana Jones name, perhaps so that another Henry Jones can adopt the name in the future... [face_thinking]

    my thought on the indy correcting himself from indy to henry..
    a gesture of respect to Henry Sr?

    I loved Indy saying "I have a bad feeling about this." It's moments like that where you're glad to be in a theater full of geeks, because everyone starts laughing.

    Not a lot of reaction in my theatre when that line dropped. I grinned though.

    But as it turns out, the creatures with the crystal skulls are not aliens from space at all, but "interdimensional travellers". This actually preserves the reading that they are/could be considered gods.

    If you view the aliens as gods (which isn't hard to do), Crystal Skull is no less believable than any of the other Indiana Jones films.

    Well, yes. By definition any Indy movie will have some paranormal or supernatural thing going on, something that couldn't be rationally explained. It's part of the appeal, I think. And it wouldn't be as much fun as say, finding out that the Ark of the Covenant, the Sankara stones and the Holy Grail were just plain old ancient objects without any mysterious/magical/supernatural attributes whatsoever.
