Mystery Man dissects why Frank Darabont's draft of INDIANA JONES 4 was better
You can download Darabont's INDY 4 here
I think I'll skip the movie and just read the good version, thank you.
UPDATE: Yeah, I'd pay money to see this version on the screen!

The link's already broken, but Google found it posted elsewhere in the first couple of hits. Once it's out there, it's out there.
It reads like genuine Darabont. If it isn't, then some studio should offer the forger a deal.
Thanks for the link, Alex. You're very kind. Hope you're well.
And if anyone comes across a draft of the GREEN HORNET movie that was written by Christopher McQuarrie then please let me know.
I can't find it. Can someone send it to me, please?
I thought the latest Indiana Jones was fun, but there were quite a few really groan-worthy scenes. I don't know what the deal is with George Lucas. I don't want to bash him for bashing's sake, but I just wonder about Lucas' taste in storytelling. It's not that he's just got a tin ear for dialogue, he just doesn't seem to catch the really groan-worthy stuff he puts up on the screen. I was only 13 when Return of the Jedi came out, but remember cringing during the whole `she's your sister' thing came up. And Obi-Wan sitting down and having a chat with Luke, even though he was dead was just far too convenient. I don't completely agree with Mystery Man but for the most part, he's right. I would have rather have seen Darabont's version, but I really would have rather seen a version without aliens altogether.
I always thought that George Lucas was a brilliant technician, but a lousy writer and even worse in directing actors. Spielberg was smart enough to focus on his directing skills and rely on killer scripts.
That being said, Indy 4 was horrible.
