Indiana Jones hobbles back

OH JUST HANG IT UP: Spielberg, Ford to reunite for fifth ‘Indiana Jones.’ Film to be released in July 2019; 73-year-old actor set to reprise iconic role as adventure-seeking archaeologist ("Agencies"/Times of Israel).

Much as I loved the first three Indiana Jones movies, especially the first, the fourth was a travesty and I just try to forget it exists. The franchise is exhausted and so is Mr. Ford. Let it go! Hollywood seems almost entirely to have lost the ability to produce anything new and creative and instead keeps serving up increasing ill-advised warmed-over remakes and geriatric sequels. Bah!
