 Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (NBC, 8:00 PM EDT)
Come on! It’s not that bad…

It's better than Temple of Doom.

 Ya know, if I was George Lucas, the only thing I wouldn't have included in the deal with Disney was the original negatives and prints of the first 3 Star Wars movies. I'd've then publically burned them and said, "There, assholes! The only version of MY movies you get to watch are ONLY the ones I want you to!!. So you can just stop worrying about trivial nonsense like whether Han or Greedo shot first cuz it JUST DOESN'T MATTER!!!!"
Die Hard 2 is obviously being played cuz 'tis the season for it, as it's in that weird '80's and '90's subgenre of Christmas Time Action Movies. Other films in this subgenre would include Die Hard 1(natch), Lethal Weapon, Reindeer Games, and my personal favorite, The Long Kiss Goodnight.

Crap, I watched The Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue.  Oh well, frees up my time to catch other shows.  And I must be one of the few who loved Temple of Doom.  Not as much as Raiders or Last Crusade, but definitely more than Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.  Shia Laboeuf ruined it for me.

 I absolutely loved Last Resort, and I was really hoping ABC would at least give it a full season's order.  I hope there's enough time for the writers to put a proper ending to the series.

I`ve never forgotten Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger.  I saw it in a theatre in Nebraska back when I was 8 or so.  In the middle of the movie an announcement came on that there was a tornado in the immediate area and for everybody to go to the washrooms as it was the safest place in the theatre.  After standing in the washroom for about ten minutes there was another announcement that the tornado was gone and there had been no damage reported over the news service.  Further they announced that they would continue with the movie and anyone who wanted to stay to finish watching the movie could do so, or get a refund and leave.  We stayed and watched the movie.  I try and catch it whenever it`s on TV.

 I have always liked Temple of Doom (yes, Raider and Crusade are better, but) and it's way way better than Crystal Skull.  Maybe it's because I was only 3 or 4 when it was made, but I still like it.

The Golden Voyage of Sinbad starrs Tom Baker as the villian in the roll that got him his turn as Dr Who.

 And Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger features Patrick Troughton so it's a double treat for Who fans!
And Temple Of Doom is my favorite Indy movie. I actually like the very dark tone. Makes it just that much sweeter when Indy wins!

How is Stargate not a classic? It is for me. Its also Emmerich's best film by a long shot.
