Indiana Jones 5 Destroyed - The Final Nail In Lucasfilm's Coffin

Published 2023-05-23
Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny was the final gamble for Kathleen Kennedy and Lucasfilm. With every other franchise and property already sunk, it was their last shot at success. And if the first batch of reviews are anything to go by, the gamble didn't pay off.

  • "A company founded by geniuses and inherited by morons" is a great quote
    Mandalorian doing the Event Horizon scream was a great touch.
  • Gerald Esposito
    The German vehicle going off the cliff in "Raiders of the Lost Ark" is the perfect analogy for Disney's monumental clusterfuck.
  • It's kind of amazing that Kathleen Kennedy herself seems to literally have NO SHAME.

    I remember when I was 11, my mom wanted to take me to see Raiders of the Lost Ark. By the billboard I thought it was some kind of religious documentary. Man was I bummed. I fought but she dragged me along. After the first 5 minute intro and the rolling ball and everything, man was I shocked and thrilled. One of the best movies I've ever seen and as a kid it was beyond awesome. I refuse to see the Dial of Disgust and ruin all my fond memories of those early movies. My excitement after those 5 minutes was immeasurable and that moment will never be taken from me.

    Imagine George Lucas watching the company he spent his life building, the company he poured his heart and soul into, the franchises that dominated the film industry, be stripped of everything people loved about them and left to rot underneath the foot of Disney and the morons in charge of Lucasfilm

    We truly live in a society where mocking a film is more entertaining than the film itself.

    To Disney: Whatever dirt she could possibly have on you, it’s not worth it anymore.

    As a woman I am so very tired of this 'women don't need men' crap.

    They had the perfect replacement. Ke Huy Quan. Diverse both ethnically and as an actor. His comeback and award wins could have propelled this movie into an instant classic without alienating a fanbase. It's an original character, one that was loved by fans and that could easily carry the franchise forward. Might not have been the PC portrayal in the original film that they wanted, but they could have made such a great film with him and Indy reuniting, strengthening their bond and passing the torch.

    I remember being a kid and getting to watch Indiana Jones AND THE LAST CRUSADE in the theater, being a bit sad it was over but thinking damn they made a great closing movie.

    And now a moment of silence for Indiana Jones. You will be missed.
  • I know that Walt Disney the man could be a putz sometimes, but some of the things he had going for him were imagination, common business sense, a love for storytelling, and the ability to find the right people for the right jobs. If he were to see his beloved company now, without him, his brother Roy, Sr., or his nephew Roy, Jr., to helm the whole thing, he would be rolling in his grave with horror and shame.
  • I am so far removed from the hype machine that is corporate culture that I didn’t even know this project was a thing. It’s great to have a CD review of the production nightmare. I invest a few minutes and get some laughs, and go back to ignoring Hollywood. Thanks!

    For those of us whom were young adults or younger in the 70's and lived with the best movies ever made ... we will always have them. We lived them. They had meaning, heart, and deep messages. They spurred a desire for science, true science. They spurred us to push past hard times, loss, and broken hearts. ... Even broken spirits. The story lines and the actors of the day whom portrayed heroes were an inspiration. True inspirations and the Star Wars saga, the ones from the true creator Mr. George Lucas, even kept me from killing myself during a time of the most horrid loss of my life. Yea. How's that for inspiration. We had the best of the best and it will always be with us. They weren't just entertainment back then. They were so very much more. Movies today are weak and shallow. Hollywood is burning it's self down with what they are "pushing".

    Never forget the remake of A Miracle on 34th Street in 1994 where Macy's department store declined any involvement, saying “we feel the original stands on its own and could not be improved upon.”

    Man, The Drinker landed devastating combination after combination on Disney and LucaFilm from start to finish.
    Bravo Drinker, Bravo.

    Kathleen Kennedy's reign of terror should be a case study in business schools for years to come on what not to do
  • Imylover
    The insane irony is that if Indy 5 indeed bombs (most likely) & it will bring consequences to Lucasfilm, at last, then the title of the film, Dial of DESTINY, will have a more significant meaning.
