just downloaded this, haven't been able to give it a read through myself yet, but it's indy (or 'jonesy' as all you crystal skull fans know him  Grin) so it's probably worth a look

I read through the first half a couple weeks ago but haven't had time to finish it.

It is amazing, a MUST READ for any writer.

Saddest part: they work so hard to establish universe rules that will hew close to realism ... and you know they completely break all these rules with Crystal Skull.

Part that will give you chills: when Spielberg offhandedly comes up with the iconic "run from the boulder" scene .

Most Interesting Part: seeing them come up with a long list of ideas and knowing all the good ones went into Raiders and all the poor ones went into Temple of Doom.

I've heard this mentioned, but not read it before. Fascinating stuff. Lucas definitely created the character. When do we get the transcript for Crystal Skull?:

"I want to see a lot of interaction with the gopher in the early part of the picture."
"How about we make him a cartoony, cgi gopher?"
"Oh yes, love it."

Yeah, one fascinating thing is that Lucas has a lot of good ideas in the conversation and LAwrence KAsdan has ideas like "when he's alone he should use his whip to snag a beer from across the room."

*blink blink*

It was a total group effort that lead to the genius, and despite how I hate him now, Lucas was a key element in that greatness.
