Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull : 'Skull' tops Total Film's 50 most disappointings Films List

'Skull' tops Total Film's 50 most disappointings Films List

Re: 'Skull' tops Total Film's 50 most disappointings Films List

TotalFilm also reported that those that hated it were in the minority.

Re: 'Skull' tops Total Film's 50 most disappointings Films List

They also said all of this, when they reviewed it:


Indy 2008 packs more than enough OTT action, daredevil stunts and old-school humour to sit snugly alongside its forebears. Yes, it’ll likely be considered the fourth best Indiana Jones film – but few series standards have been set so high ... Bloggers be damned. This is fantastic Boy’s Own fun ... Crucially, this looks and feels like an Indiana Jones film: anyone foretelling Phantom Menace levels of childhood decimation will have to stow their cynicism. It is good to have the ol’ boy back, flying around his paper-map world with a big red line, speaking dialects not heard for centuries and generally just being bloody cool … The kids can keep their Iron Man.

It wouldn't surprise me if he was a secret closet fan given how dedicated he is to talking about this movie all the time.

Re: 'Skull' tops Total Film's 50 most disappointings Films List

The sets looked stupid. what were they thinking?

Re: 'Skull' tops Total Film's 50 most disappointings Films List

Good question... my guess: They think nothing...

That list of 50 Most Disappointing Films is way off.

Firstly, have the Total Film staff never seen a film made before 1989?

Secondly, The League of Gentlemen's Apocalypse, Kill Bill Vol. 2, Alien 3, Superman Returns and ESPECIALLY Eyes Wide Shut have no places on that list.

Thirdly, how can The Hangover II be considered "disappointing" when the first film was diabolical.

Fourthly, where are the other two Star Wars prequels?

Finally, IJ&TKOTCS simply isn't the most disappointing film of all time. It's not very good, but there are way more bigger let downs when it comes to movies.

Maybe in your single opinion. Fact is: "Skull" is considered as one of the worst Sequels of all time. I love that!!! :-)

A curious way to argue on a post focused on the opinion of one man, George Wales.

Check out the thread that you're writing on; you did start it, after all. It's about an article on the Total Film website credited to a single author.

Re: 'Skull' tops Total Film's 50 most disappointings Films List

It was a poll:

And don't forget the ranking on imdb and RT. Muahahahahaha... hihihihi...

If it was a poll, then why does the Total Film article not mention it, why are the comments full of people disagreeing with it, and why are the only results you'll find from Google claiming it to be a poll completely unrelated articles on other websites?

Re: 'Skull' tops Total Film's 50 most disappointings Films List

Don't know. Ask them! It's a great poll, isn't it? Aaaaahhh.. it'as great... and of course the imdb and RT-Ranking... hihihih

I don't think I'll be wasting my time with that, given that they identify the results of their polls as such.
Example (note the key words 'Your poll results revealed... By Total Film', rather than crediting it to a single author and not mentioning a poll once): http://www.totalfilm.com/features/the-20-worst-screen-couples

Re: 'Skull' tops Total Film's 50 most disappointings Films List

It's not based on any poll. If it was then they'd have mentioned it was based off poll results. They always do when reporting things like this.

Re: 'Skull' tops Total Film's 50 most disappointings Films List

It's a great poll. I love it. LIke the embarrasing Skull-Ranking on imdb and RT.
