Louis Stevens is not Short Round

Found this awesome T-shirt design on Facebook:


If you're interested in cementing your disdain for LeBeouf's Mutt Williams, albeit in T-shirt form, you can purchase the shirt here.

Lucas recently stated that his kids are the biggest inspiration behind his films, which makes perfect sense as to why the prequel trilogy and this newest Indy film were so goofy. Lucas exorcised his desire to make children laugh in Indy IV with CGI prairie dogs and monkeys. The only problem is that neither of these things were funny.

One reviewer felt very confused by the prairie dogs especially, and wondered why they were in the film. She won't be alone.

If Lucas wants to make movies for his kids, then he needs to do just that. The guy's a billionare. He could totally bank-roll any number of photo-real CGI kids movies like Prairie Dog Gulch and Silly Monkey Swing-a-long. Why doesn't he make original family entertainment? Probably because he's afraid they'll flop like his last two attempts at an original film, Howard the Duck, which isn't even available on DVD, and Willow.

So in lieu of taking a chance and making original films for his kids, Lucas has chosen the easy way - or the Dark Side, if you will - by goofing his established film series up with poop jokes, fart sounds, and groin shots. The prequel trilogy had all three of these things in spades while Indiana and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull had the latter. Doesn't Lucas know that when he makes these kiddy cash-grab sequels from his classic movies that he's only cheapening his cinematic legacy? The Star Wars saga is completely shot now for most people. I'm still a fan, but when someone says 'Those movies are so lame,' I can't disagree that they're at least half right.

And if Lucas is to be believed, he says he wants to make another sequel, this one starring LaBeouf's character, with Indy riding the side-car a la Sean Connery in The Last Crusade. What a waste. After seeing River Phoenix and Sean Patrick Flannery play a young Hank Jones, there's no reason to believe Lucas and Spielberg can't pass the whip so to speak and let someone else make an Indana Jones film with a new actor in the title role.

It certainly worked out nicely for James Bond -- sometimes.
