Maybe it's because TOD was the first Indy movie I saw and, until KOTCS, the only one I saw in the cinema, but I've never gotten the hatred for it.
- Much more cartoonish action than anything in Raiders
- Terrorized children, where Raiders
- A vapid, annoying and generally useless female protagonist, where Raiders
had an excellent one
- Pointless and cartoonish scenes like the jungle-noises sequence, where Raiders
- A random kid Indy entrusts his life to, where Raiders
- An Asian kid who, without any explanation or warning, suddenly knows kung-fu, and is super-strong enough to knock a large, grown man down with a midair kick
, where Raiders
- Evil Indy hurting and scaring the crap out of that same kid
- A lack of interesting villains, where Raiders
- A wildly flailing tone, where Raiders
had a consistent one
like the movie, that's dandy, but with all due respect, if you can't "get" why others don't
, you're either insulting those same people by acting as if they're bereft of legitimate complaints, or severely intellectually challenged. I trust that it's the former, but still, would it rip your heart out to have the courtesy to not
implicitly belittle other people's responses to a not-at-all universally-loved movie?
