‘Indiana Jones’ Side-By-Side Video Essay

Filmscalpel’s insightful video essay breaks down the visual overlap of classic Indiana Jones iconography in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008).  Reviews of the fourth installment were scathing (“it’s less of a movie than a horrific catalogue of everything that is miserable and boring in modern Hollywood”).  As Filmscalpel states, the fourth episode’s “silly plotting (the extraterrestrial elements are farfetched even for an Indiana Jones movie), and its “extensive use of CGI as opposed to practical effects” were the main reasons for its unpopularity. In a side-by-side comparison, the video essay shows that recreating the visuals was apparently not enough to recapture the magic of the original.
