I know it's popular to trash the latest Indiana Jones movie, but, ya know, I'll admit it: I didn't hate it. It wasn't a great movie by any stretch of the imagination - there were a few too many reaction shots from cute, furry animals and at least one scene too many featuring a certain character swinging from vines with monkeys for that to be true - but I had fun. I got what I expected from an Indiana Jones film and had few complaints. I didn't even mind the sci-fi turn the story took, chalking that up to the fact that the story took place in the 50s (aka the golden age of science fiction and flying saucers) so it only made sense for the Indy stories to start incorporating that aspect of period pop culture.
Despite my semi-positive feelings about the film, I'd still give anything to see Frank Darabont's version, which Spielberg supposedly loved and Lucas vetoed (and was discussed here: http://www.movie-moron.com/?p=448
, a few weeks back. And what do ya know, I may have gotten the next best thing. Supposedly, Darabont's original script has been linked online and you can download the pdf file here: http://www.cloneweb.net/index.php?2008/06/12/1175-indiana-jones-iv-le-script-de-frank-darabont
(click the first link in the second paragraph). I haven't read the entire thing myself yet, but everything I've seen seems to point to the script being legit. But get clicking fast, as the link is undoubtedly not long for this world.
