Indiana Jones and the Horrors of 3D Post-Conversion
Here we go again. We already did a Throwdown on the topic of modifying existing works (and highlighted a certain someone’s willingness to do so). I had hoped the madness was over. How young I was back then. How naive. While (through repeated exposure) I’ve basically become immune to George Lucas trying to ruin Star Wars, when Indy 4 nuked the fridge, it actually hurt me. And now, like Achilles dragging the corpse of Hector around the walls of Troy, George Lucas is tying what’s left of the Indy franchise to the back of his chariot and tellin’ them horsies to giddyup. Play the grieving Priam and beg for the corpse of your beloved son, so that you may give him a proper burial, after the jump.
Word on the street is that all of the Indiana Jones movies will be getting a theatrical re-release in glorious post-converted 3D. And by glorious, I mean really, really bad. Hopefully Star Wars 3D is a big enough failure to prevent this from ever happening, but you and I both know it won’t be. The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem, so here goes. We’re paying George Lucas to do this to us.
