Before "Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" was chosen as the subtitle for this movie, the original title on the original script was "Indiana Jones and the Saucer Men", because that was George Lucas' original choice for the title. He also had several other titles in mind, such as "Indiana Jones and the Attack of the Giant Ants". Steven Spielberg's wanted the movie to be called "Indiana Jones and the (blank blank) of the Mysterians", but he quickly gave up on that idea, to avoid confusion with The Mysterians (1957). Screenwriter David Koepp thought the movie should have been called "Indiana Jones and the Son of Indiana Jones". Eventually all three had settled on the movie's final title, with Lucas himself insisting on using the word "Kingdom" in the title, as opposed to "Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull". See more »

I don't understand. Why the legend about the city of gold?
The Ugha word for gold translates as "treasure." But their treasure wasn't gold. It was knowledge. Knowledge was their treasure.

I'll confess up-front that I wasn't expecting as much from this film as its three prequels. Harrison Ford is twenty years older, see, and I just couldn't imagine an Indy movie under those circumstances. But he did it, Indy did it, and the movie was an absolute wide-eyed riot! The action outdid itself in all its glory, all the humor of the chase scenes were fantastic, and overall Indy IV is one awesome come-back for Indy and Marion! See it ... you won't be disappointed. *I* wasn't, not in the least! :)
On the other hand, I saw this film with my sister and her husband (we're all 50-ish). My sister's opinion and rating would likely be a shrug of the shoulders. Her husband wasn't in the least impressed. Silly people! ;)
I've been an Indy action and humor fan from the beginning ... maybe that's a must to enjoy this movie? Hey, the action's killer and I laughed my butt off and rate this movie the perfect 10 it deserves! Enjoy it! :)
