Are you gonna throw bricks and custard pies at George Lucas?

Henryjonesjr_lYou’ve probably already read the spoiler-y Vanity Fair cover story on Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (in theaters May 22), but if you haven’t, here’s the link. Now we’ll issue a SPOILER ALERT of our own…

As more — well, a little more — plot information about the fourth film surfaces, are you feeling confident that Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Harrison Ford (pictured), and Cate Blanchett are on the right track? Are you looking forward to an Indy movie that’s less supernatural and more sci-fi, as befits its Atomic Age/Cold War 1950s setting? Or are you already planning on throwing bricks and custard pies at George Lucas, as he suspects?

I’ll be honest: Reading Spielberg’s quotes about staying true to the franchise’s old-school cinematography  and Lucas’ musings on Ford’s perfect “befuddled, oh-my-God-I’m gonna-die look” got me excited.

Then again, I’m also planning on seeing Rambo.
