    Par, you know I've thought about that a lot. I think the biggest thing is this: The script for the first three was corny and cliche too, but the difference is the actors seemed to know this and they almost come across as exaggerating it and enjoying it, having fun with it. You know what I mean? These actors, they are good actors, but they took a bad script and had to act it out seriously, whereas the first three a lot of the time had humorous undertones and the actors seemed to be having fun with it. I sensed a really good chemistry between the actors in the first three too. I could imagine them sitting around laughing and joking in between takes.

    Which may come back to directing. It may be Lucas taking himself too serious, when that dialogue just screams out to be campy. I think Harrison, Mark and Carrie do not get enough credit for making it work. Chemistry can really rise above it all. Look at Shatner, he's made a whole career on bad/campy acting.

Maybe he's taking himself too serious in these last 3, hence why he chose the actors he did and why the scripts are lacking.



    I dunno, I think George really lost focus on what made the first three so good.
    I know for me, it's because I was a kid when I saw the first three. Now, that I'm older, they mostly are good to me because they bring back such good memories. I think the scripts are just as crappy in the originals, I have thought that for a long time. I've talked to kids that are the age I was when I remember seeing these movies, and, they get the same feelings about the new ones that I remember getting about the old movies. I think Lucas is using the same formula, and, still trying to aim it at a younger audience. I don't know, that's how I've always felt about it.

    I swear I rewatch the first ones mostly to see Harrison Ford and his facial expressions and hear his corny swashbuckling lines. He has the best facial expressions, especially that crooked goofy grin of his. He is definitely one of my all-time favorite people to watch on the screen, especially his campy action movies, Star Wars and Indiana Jones.

    Lucas, himself, has admitted that dialogue isn't his strong suit. I have to admit that the best parts of the movie were when everyone got to shut up and act.

    As for what I watched over the weekend:

    Cool Runnings - the ending of which is still sappy enough to get me bawling like a baby

    Beverly Hills Ninja - Well, bits and pieces anyway. I had the tv on just for background noise when that was on

    Antz - I wish I got Cartoon Network in clearer, but I guess I can't complain since I'm really not supposed to be getting it at all.

    This is a fun post, Kari. Over the weekend, we rented "Hitch" and "Coach Carter". We laughed at Hitch and enjoyed Coach Carter very much, too. Whoever said that Samuel L. Jackson is a good actor, I totally agree. What a performance!

    Hey Kelly, we watched 4 episodes of Monk yesterday, too! I had only seen it once or twice, never realized what a "sad" story is built into that series! I told Scott we have to watch the new episode this coming Friday, now. I loved it!

    At last Kari you have finally got a movie thread going, I love to read everyone's comments on different movies, and then make my own mind up whether to rent it or go see it.

    As I mentioned in another thread I have just seen FINDING NEVERLAND on video, it was indeed a lovely movie, but I found it a little disappointing because the hype surrounding it made it a bit of a let down for me personally, but Johnny still lived up to my expectations as he always does , I also knew the ending more or less, so that spoilt it a little for me, but all in all I would give it a 7 out of Ten I think.
    Have fun at the Rainbow Bridge,Zara,Rusty, Juliette ,Romeo,sweet Tessa,wee stray and Harvey you all will never be forgotten.

    The Fox and the Hound was my absolute FAVORITE movie as a little kid. I had one of those old record/storybooks of it that I listened to constantly
