    I heard the original screenplay for Last Crusade written by Chris Columbus opened in a haunted house in Scotland and ended with the holy grail being guarded by a giant ape. I wonder if they will use either of these. Doubt the giant ape, ha. But they did use the mining cars and plane crash in TOD which were originally in the Raiders script.

    All of that was basically rejected by Spielberg because it was too fantastical. Without Lucas pushing for something for esoteric and experimental, I doubt Spielberg or any studio will go in that direction.

    Yes he'd go with less fantastical stuff like aliens. :p Kidding I know this was George's idea.

    We're already at 12 years since Crystal Skull. Kind of funny when I recall the mid 90s when I thought of Last Crusade as a "classic 80s film" despite that it was like six years old.

    The crazy thought is that it's possible that by the time Indy 5 comes out, it would almost be close to as much time in between CS and Five as there was between LC and CS!! As an adult that block of years feels VERY different and much shorter for me-the time between LC and CS was like my entire childhood thru graduating college into my late 20s!

    My fingers are crossed that the writers are taking advantage of the covid 19 delay to put more time into a good script.

    Twelve years. Where does the time go? It's eleven years since "Avatar", which seems weird as it feels very much a modern movie. My youngest was just a baby when it came out, and this year he's off to high school.

    I watched Call of the Wild last night. I really enjoyed it. I quite like "old" Harrison Ford. He's like a pair of comfortable slippers, you always know what you're going to get with him.

    I thought that I was going to hate the CGI dogs, but actually thought they were great.

    Call of the Wild was really good, as was Ford's performance. The CGI was a little strange at first, but once I got used to it was fine.
