Really? You didn't even enjoy the first 98% of last film Revenge of the Sith? The ending Vader scene was a bit abrupt, short, stiff and seemed like a throw in, but I thought the first 98% it was quiet well done. I think the material in Revenge should have been slit into two films. Make it seven parts.

I did enjoy all the films. But I had problems with some aspects of the prequels (midichrorians, Jar-Jar, some disjointed one-liners). Actually, what I didn't like about the prequels is what I didn't like about Return of the Jedi, as much of those things started in that film (yub-yub Ewoks, mellodramatic end of the Vader/Luke fight: Vader taking "the pose" hanging the railing). Still, Return of the Jedi's Emperor/Luke and Death Star space battle is fantastic. And the prequels have similair fantastic aspects.

I'd really like to see a sharp director make Star Wars films from the Timothy Zhan trilogy books. Those were excellent stories, and take place from the second Revenge of the Sith ends. I think Guillermo del Toro
would be a good choice. Can anyone think of a good director for those?

Del Toro would be awesome for SW, he has an excellent style.

Back on the subject of Indy, I think a darker relic could be cool for him to pursue too, maybe even something rooted in demonology. Something like the Pazuzu statue.

That might work. American audiences really liked seeing the Ark be proven real to Indy. The rather loose "Indian vudoo" they used in Temple of Doom, was not well received. Along with it being poorly researched and presented. I think a subject with a strong historical basis, a tie to reality and faith reafirming, is the track Raiders showed worked. What's the Pazuzu statue?

If they make a fifth one how would you like to see it done? I'd like to see it darker in tone like TOD was and use a different mythology. I always thought the lost city of Atlantis would've been awesome for Indy to pursue for a final quest.
You are aware there is a point and click adventure game called 'Indiana Jones and the Fate of Lost Atlantis' and it's f-ing AWESOME!?!?!?!?

For...22+ years?

Yeah I remember it. Not bad. If you like old sierra games and things like Broken Sword it'll work for you.

Though for a more action oriented title, with a pretty decent script, go with the much more recent "Emperors Tomb" Very satisfying title.

On the subject of a fifth film, I was reading the newest issue of Starburst magazine and they had a section about upcoming movies and said Indiana Jones 5 is looking likely with Disney's plans for another film and a greenlight is expected anyday by now. Not exactly a confirmation but it's looking pretty probable we'll get an official announcement not too long from now.
