Out of the Blue

I saw a reference today to Indiana Jones today that made me think of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, a recollection not as painful for me as it should be, as I have not seen the much-reviled latest installment in the series. This is because, as I've mentioned in the past, MrsBlue and I end up seeing a vast majority of movies after they come to cable/satellite, especially when the reviews are as mixed (to put it kindly) as they were for Indy 4. Which brings me to my point: Is Spielberg so embarrassed by this film he's keeping it off cable? It was released well over four years ago, and its absence from the small screen is starting to seem like the it's getting The Star Wars Holiday Special treatment. By all accounts this is deserved, but I remain masochistically curious to see it.

My problems with Prometheus:

- Inconsistent characterization (major discrepancies in established characters vs actions, even taken in context)
- Uneven plot (too many divergent sideplots vying for attention and the main plot themes are never really explored as a result)
- Bizarre pacing (the movie takes too long to get going then overstays its welcome when it does)

The Honest Trailer for it totally demolishes most of the major points but it is far from exhaustive in outlining the movies issues. You don't have to be a nitpicky spergelord to pick up on these things either. I don't really care about buddy taking off his helmet for example but there are a ton of egregious examples that go way beyond nitpicking a small point.
