About: Before Spielberg’s go-to writer David Koepp wrote Crystal Skull, super screenwriter Frank Darabont worked on a draft of the script. Our final lost Indy script involves The City of the Gods. Darabont turned in three versions of his screenplay, culminating in ‘s Indiana. An alternate version of the script, possibly written by Frank Darabont, was (briefly) posted on the Internet.

It is just there is something about films from childhood that make you see beyond the flaws. It doesn’t have that Indiana Jones feel in the first 2 acts, and when it finally kicks in, it’s the lousy tree swinging scene, giant ants, and a chase scene in which they fall down 4 waterfalls and survive Shia Labeouf, the ants, the monkeys, cgi in favour of sets the jungle looked like a cartoonand things lndy the fridge are just small qualms albeit they’re still awful.

And instant body devouring ants. The plane comes in hard and fast, its wings sheared off by jungle daragont and it belly flops on the ground.
Some things better, some worse. A rubber tree that supports a car? Anything, including not making a fourth movie, would have been better. Even multiple gods or multiple pantheons would make more sense Greek, Roman, Nordic, etc.
In real life, I would recommend lots of padding for when you get launched a couple hundred yards, but hey it’s Indiana Jones.
Indy is dragged through the canopy, hitting treetops and scaring monkeys, until the plateau ends and he is finally able to drag himself into the cockpit. That very version popped up online late Wednesday. I’ve made my case before, but this is it in a nutshell:.
I missed the very “manly” Indiana Jones. It’s fully enunciated and everything wtf. Nobody should have that much power. Indy climbs into the gunner’s seat and Yuri flips the plane upside down, hoping to make Indy fall out. I challenge you to find a video game series with a more intricate plot and better dialogues. Vampires, werewolves, zombies, the draabont from the black lagoon? The moment Indy gets out of one jam, something goes wrong, and he’s in another life-or-death situation. As someone who holds Raiders of the Lost Ark as one of the most perfect movies scrlpt made, I find Crystal to be my favorite sequel, just because it does the least to varabont Raiders.
Also, I think it dilutes the imdy of having gods be real.

I wish this had been made, even if it ended up being worse than Crystal Skull because I think the scriipt needs a scene of Sean Connery singing “Fly Me to the Moon.
It reads just as terrible as the film turned out to be. No less ridiculous in my book. I’m sure you’ve heard this argument before, but essentially any film can be as unrealistic as it wants to as long as it abides by it’s own rules This way we can accept the ridiculousness easily The force makes sense given the Star Wars universe.
The meaning of it all. Nor could the wasted potential of a brilliant actress like Cate Blanchett, reduced to a terrible accent. It doesn’t resolve any of the real problems with the 4th one. The pyramid begins to shake and crumble apart.
It’s a little less terrible, but it’s still bad. We call that an awesome climax.

All that fortune and glory? Swept up in the moment, everyone said yes.
With either script, it’s still shitty film and an even shittier thing for Lucas to do. I got as far as the giant ants and had to stop.
