Because it cranked up the stupid level 110%?

I picked "The Last Crusade" for two reasons. One, it's the one I've seen the most number of times, and therefore it is the one I am most familiar with. Two, it has all the perfect elements which set it apart from the other films. It has the best ending, the most incredible quest, and to top it off, a classic actor portraying Indy's dad! WOW!

I haven't seen KOTCS yet, but I doubt it could be a more fitting end than "The Last Crusade".

It's not a more fitting end, more like something they globbed onto the end

It was always pretty high anyway........I've still never remotely understood that complaint when anyone makes it but a lot of people definitely do come at it from that angle.

Odd.

I think you should listen to The IndyCast it is a Indiana Jones podcast and covers everything Indy anyway I also love The Last Crusade it was just a great movie with Sean Connery portraying Indy's dad he was so good

Well, Shia Lebouf automatically increases the stupid quotient with his presence. I think it's more of a thing with Lucas and his constant going back to screw stuff up. A lot of people hated the prequels (I didn't) and that hate carried over into Indy once they realized that it was filled with computer generated s***.

I just thought that per captia, there was too much stupid crap in the movie (even more than the despised Temple of Doom). Plus, it frankly shouldn't have been made since Last Crusade was the perfect end of the saga. It was the second most disappointing movie I had ever seen after Ang Lee's Hulk.

I don't why Indy fans hate Temple of Doom it goes into the dark side of adventure which I thought was really interesting in an Indiana Jones movie. what do you think of Temple of Doom

Last Crusade and Raiders of the Lost Ark were the best.
