From the twisted mind of Edward D. Wood, Jr. comes this gender-bending tale... that really is as bizarre as a drunken trip to a carnival of transvestites. What started off as a wholehearted attempt to explain cross-dressing to a conservative and prejudiced culture, devolved into an incoherent mess of a film that has to be seen to be believed.
You take a great director (Steven Spielberg), a great producer (George Lucas), a great cast (Harrison Ford, Cate Blanchett, and Karen Allen), and a great franchise (Indiana Jones)... and you end up with this drivel? So, so very sad. The death of a die hard Indy fan.

If you're curious how to alienate your most diehard fans, learn from a pro... George Lucas second prequel to the classic Star Wars trilogy is a painfully loud, unsubtle, poorly acted and written piece of a sci-fi travesty. If you want to cringe until it hurts watch this along with Episode I after seeing the original films.
Look, it's our friend Michael Bay again. Don't we just love that guy?! Now, I'm something of an avid student of history and I don't recall ever having read about the Japanese bombing of an American love triangle (I thought it was the Pacific Fleet that they attacked).
