Good News/Bad News About Indiana Jones IV

Good News: The disastrous idea of having Kate Capshaw (aka Mrs. Steven Spielberg) reprise her role as the despised Willie Scott from the unloved Temple of Doom is, at the moment, recanted.

Karen Allen will (for the moment) come back as the best "Jones girl," Marion Ravenwood.

Now, the thing is... well, Ms. Allen is kinda... you know. She's not 20 anymore, obviously. They may be able to take 10 years off her, but, with the creaky Harrison Ford as her co-star, this is not going to be your father's Indiana Jones. More like your grandfather's.

Why the hell did these morons wait so long? Oh, right: Spielberg had to do "Hook," and Harrison Ford had to make a lot of movies with "serious acting" in which he played a growling lump of igneous rock.

"Internal acting." Yeah, right. How about impassive? Brick-like? Charisma-free?

Dude, your forte is somewhat broad light comedy and action. Accept it.

Only Lucas has a good reason for the delay on this. He did the world a favor by making the three Star Wars prequels, helping an entire generation move on from Star Wars obsession.

Bad News: They're giving Indy a daughter -- Natalie Portman -- because, you know, we really want to see more kids in Indy movies. Short Round was soooooo funny and cute, I could just gag myself with barbed wire.

I'm hoping for a Indy/Goonies team-up, myself.
