    I personally dont like this title. From the six titles that were registered for Indy IV the best, in my opinion was Indiana Jones and the City of Gods. But this title is still better than Indiana Jones and the Destroyer of Worlds (another of possible titles).

    What a stupid idea.

  4. Sharpy says:

    Well, I guess this title will grow on us over time just like Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith did.

    Personally I wish it was not in the format of “Indiana Jones and the SOMETHING of SOMETHING SOMETHING”

    The title is largely irrelevant (as it’s the movie that counts). It’s as good as any that has gone before, and is in keeping with the Saturday matinee feel that Lucas likes to reference. I’m sure we’ll see a lot of title bashing over the next few weeks from those low down the food chain.

  6. DF says:

    This is an idiotic title. Where is the excitement or adventure? I bet the real reason it took this long to announce the title was that everyone was trying to get George to change the title.

    It sucks! What is exciting about a Kingdom of the Crystal Skull?

    How about a Temple of Doom? or a Last Crusade? or even Raiders of the Lost Ark?

    This is a huge mistake George, and it’s an implication of the the movie as well. Anyone want to bet? I bet you that there will be so many characters or background characters to endlessly offer new action figures for years! (It’s all about making the Indiana Jones franchise into a money source anyway… isn’t it george? )

    I have to admit, I’m an Indy fan…and I don’t like it.

    For something on the order of a novel or a Young Indy show, it’s great. Maybe even a Walt Disney attraction or something of that nature.

    But for a feature film, I don’t think it’s going to draw in the crowd. I really don’t. I don’t see how anyone can profit from this project based on the information that I have at the moment.

    Granted, yeah, I’m still going to see it. Because I’m crazy.
