Having watched Crystal Skull many times, I cannot fault Shia's performance and feel that he's a highlight of the film.

Ray Winstons's "JONESY!!!!", on the other hand, got on my damn nerves. It always felt misplaced and down right awkward. Its the objectionable thing I have against the film, but its no where near as film breaking as that bloody awful "Jedi Rocks" in ROTJ: Special Edition. Seeing your favourite childhood film ruined is like someone taking a machette to the Mona Lisa. Its heart breaking...

Casual gaming, mostly solo-coop these days.

I am saying both that 1) I don't like him personally (remember those like.. 2 years of his weird antics acting out in a death spiral of his own making? Fighting a bum? "I am not famous any more" paper bag. The sitting in a room with a paper bag while people wait on line to berate him? The plagiarizing an apology for plagiarizing? He is in fact a real piece of gak. The only good thing to come out of it (and admittedly, it is fething great) is Actual Canibal Shia Lebuff, and 2) He is bad at acting. Case in point...




These are my opinions. This is how I feel. Others may feel differently. This needs to be stated for some reason.

Isn't there a rule about continuing a franchise where it's been a decade or more since the last movie or the last good movie? Hollywood keeps milking franchises dead I guess.

I think the saddest thing I heard many years ago is that it's not that entertainment has no new ideas but rather it's very costly and very risky to make a big budget movie so generally when they do big budget it's safe and why remakes and or sequels are so common.

Let Indy rest man. People ranted about crystal skull enough as it is. I don't want to see another series from my childhood get wrecked.

Not to mention there's also the rule of every series should end after the 3rd. Only James bond and maybe Batman can survive past 3.

Don’t forget this gem in Mr leBouf’s bushel, being significantly out acted by a 12 year old dancer




I have to say though that Transformers is a guilty pleasure of mine.

I never liked the Shia LaBeouf character. I don’t think it was the actor so much as it felt like I was watching a back door pilot. I don’t know whether or not this was the plan, but it seemed like they were trying to pass the torch from Harrison Ford and had the film ( and the character) been better received, we would have seen a spin off film starring LaBeouf.

The whole thing just felt contrived.

I also like when he got political and set up a webcam of a an anti-Trump flag in an undisclosed location. It only took hours for people to figure out where it was and steal it. Then it happened again. And then again. LOL

the rule of DC is that we are not allowed to get more than 2 good movies from the same series without a reboot

and the rule of 3 is more about a rule that you should not make more movies than there is source material to draw from, as well as avoiding prequels with the same actors


problem is that because continouing a franchise worked in same cases as well as the sequel being better than the first movie let people jump to the conclusion that it will always work with every movie and it is a save way to print money

He's 78 and still getting roped into action movies. Its not a happy job for that age, even with stunt doubles.

Efficiency is the highest virtue.
