If you want to know how bad Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is, then just watch these two videos.
If you haven’t seen any of the Pitch Meeting videos before, then you are in for a treat. Ryan George does hilarious skits where he’s the writer pitching a movie concept to a producer, also himself but wearing a suit. He does a great job of pointing out all of the flaws that a movie has. I could watch these videos all day long.
You’ll have to take my word for it, there are a few movies that The Critical Drinker has good words for, but those are few and far between, which is a good thing because when he hates a movie, he eviscerates it without remorse. And boy, did he hate Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny.
In Defense of the Creators
I refuse to believe that the writers David Koepp, Jez and John-Henry Butterworth, and the director James Mangold should be held responsible for this travesty of a story. These guys have a pretty good track record for creating quality stories. In some fashion, the suits at Disney placed some constraints on the creators that handcuffed their creative ability because there’s no chance that anyone with a shred of talent could make something this wretched.
Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack. Use the RunPee app (Androidor iPhone) when you go to the movies. We have Peetimes for all wide release films every week, including Drive Away Dolls, Madam Web, One Love, Argylle, I.S.S., and coming soon DUNE part II and many others. We have literally thousands of Peetimes—from classic movies through today’s blockbusters. You can also keep up with movie news and reviews on our blog, or by following us on Twitter @RunPee. If there’s a new film out there, we’ve got your bladder covered.
Creator and developer of the RunPee app. When something doesn’t work right in the app it’s pretty much his fault. 🙂
Aspiring author. Would like to finish his “Zombie Revelations” trilogy if he could break away for working on RunPee and the cottage he’s building for RunPee Mom.
