If Raiders and LC establish that the Judeo-Christian god is at least somewhat real, how do aliens that ostensibly gave birth to all ancient civilizations fit into the world’s pantheon of supreme beings? At least we think it did.
I don’t necessarily think an Indy movie should do a direct sequel, but in this case I would have much preferred it. Nobody should have that much power. The Big Lie and Big Buy are the same thing, and little lies are fine if they belong in that world.
Yeah, I get it, we all look at svript original trilogy with rose-colored goggles and everyone darabojt George Lucas going in and was expecting to hate it.
The Lost Scripts, Part III: Indiana Jones and the City of the Gods
It was widely reported beforehand that Darabont had written a rejected Indiana Jones screenplay. But in the reality of an Indy world, everything is plausible.
You get away with Big Lies: I mean, the stones are magicso why not?!?! We’ve got this established reality, that is very much grounded here on earth.

Its not that they are worse, but that they are different. Well, I read it and its solid. In Raiders, it’s fine to have a presupposition of God. With either script, it’s still shitty film and an even shittier thing for Lucas to do. Atlantis inry such an obvious choice for an Indiana Jones story.
It’s all pretty much based in reality. Swept up in the moment, everyone said yes. I remember how disappointed I was after seing it. Indy climbs into the gunner’s seat and Yuri flips the plane upside down, hoping to make Indy fall out.
A flying saucer erupts from the ground, lifting the ruins into the air, but soon the machine sputters and falls back into its ancient grave.
But it was fine when he and his idiots survived falling out of a plane and down a mountain in an inflatable raft. Indy gets his hands on the bag and finds it contains one of the 13 legendary crystal skulls.

Or if, in The Two Towers, just as Helms Deep is about to fall, they are rescued by a band of traveling ninja warriors. Familiar, trope-ish scriptt, though. I think the giant ants would have been worse than what we got.
Basically I darabojt it more believable that a fictional world would have one source of supernatural power rather than multiple. And the Soviets are also a worthy villain with plenty of weird stuff to explore, like mind control. It doesn’t have that Indiana Jones feel in the first 2 acts, and when it finally kicks in, it’s the lousy tree swinging scene, giant ants, and a chase scene in which they fall down 4 waterfalls and survive In exchange, the alien will grant them one wish.
Although only part of those things are bad on their own. Even the refrigerator was about as sensical as a raft parachute, or being accidentally saved by a ricochet bullet. We’ll let Marion ask:.
As Indy is leaving the room, he looks back and sees the alien mummy, rejuvenated by the deaths of the men, rising from its sarcophagus. That mythos can be described broadly as magical icons from ancient civilizations, which fit nicely with Dr.
I feel like it’s justified though because Lucas takes all the heat for how bad that film was, he deserves it.
