I would go quite that far..

Probably didn't help though that Disney insisted on releasing Solo so soon after. Damn, there doesn't need to be one or more of these things every year. Scarcity creates a higher demand. Less is more. Cliches like that. Short sentences that don't form a complete thought. Damn, am I stream of consciousnessing again? Did I type that? Did I type THAT? Okay, stopping now.

I guess it comes down to who do you blame the most, The person who came up with the bad ideas, or the boss who greenlit them?

Problems aside, neither film is really bad. Star Wars fans have just been freebasing nerd rage for so long that they can't live without it.

Or, maybe they're onto something and TLJ was the Secret Empire of movies.

I wouldn't go that far. Kennedy probably does not deserve all of the flack she got, nor does Ron Howard who is catching more than his fair share, although she does deserve some. Johnson deserves every single bit of it. However I'm talking corporate shit rolling downhill, not fandom flack.

Exactly. There are different types of blame, not all blame is the same, and there is more than enough to go around.

Solo was okay, enjoyable in parts even, what my grandparents called a wet sunday afternoon movie. It is something perfectly fine to watch to while away the hours.

TLJ was bad though. It was a thematic mess even on its own merits detached from the rest of the franchise, add it into the franchise and it goes to a steaming hot mess that seems to hate the people who watch the franchise. It is disjointed and the plots don't seem to mesh up too well together, it is like three movies jammed together. There is the jailbreak-heist movie of Canto Blight, the Caine Mutiny in Space movie only with Queeg as the Mutineer this time, and the Mystic Sorcerer Movie with the Jedi stuff all shoved together higgledy piggledy and it jumps around at random between them. And Johnson seems to think he is putting in big subversive twists when he is really just giving us dumb anticlimaxes instead. He should have been delivering on the set ups from the last movie, not under cutting them.

Why not make a new Young Indie Jones tv series and have it exclusive to Prime or Netflix.

Have Harrison Ford write a book and recount his 'his lost adventures' narrative style.

Because Disney want ALL the money they're not going to get even with Netfilx. They think they'll get it from Very Old Indiana Jones movies. Well, movie, because Ford will probably be 100 by the time they get to a sequel after the next one.

Be a good thing to go with the Star Wars series on Disney's new streaming service.

What if this was animated?

Would that make this a better idea? Or a worse one?

Well if it's all Disney and if it would be like the animated Adventure of Tin Tin movie then I wouldn't mind.

Or they could just not make any more Indiana Jones period. That's always been an option. The fact that they think we want old Indy wheeled out onto the big screen to hobble about for our amusement suggests that they don't have a lot of ideas for this character anyways.

Just let the franchise sleep for a while. I certainly wasn't complaining during the time between Last Crusade and Crystal Skull.

This. But of course, Disney will do it anyway.

Comicbooks, novels, and maybe a computer game or two would be fine. But for any sort of acted narrative, I think it needs to lie fallow for a little while. There is no real cultural demand for even that type of movie right now, much less an actual Indy movie. I'm just not sure who they think the audience would be for it?
