Honestly sort of surprised that Kingdom of the Crystal Skull has a higher rating...

Yeah, I think fans of the series tend to rate Crystal Skull the lowest, but critics generally saw it as decent, and probably better than they expected given Ford's age and the long gap.

Temple came right after Raiders, which was pretty much universally loved, so expectations were extremely high and critics were disappointed. There was also a lot of controversy about its violence, along with some criticism for it being racist and sexist.

Potentially unpopular opinion, but I don't think Temple of Doom is racist. Sure, the depiction of Indians is stereotypical and full of clichees, but so is the depiction of Germans in the other two when you think about it.

Fun quiz, got 18. I guessed a lot of Bond ones but ultimately didn't try View to a Kill, I couldn't remember the names of any of the Hobbit movies, and I don't know Bourne movies that well.

Honestly Terminator 1 isn't that good, it's good for the time but kind of weak today, I have yet to see Judgement Day and I'm really looking forward to it because that's generally seen as the far superior one

Even though A New Hope is my personal favorite, I would say Empire might be slightly better from a more objective standpoint, Meta tends to contradict IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes so it gets really confusing when you try to find a movie's ratings and see a bunch of different stuff

Spent ages trying to remember how many armies were in the 3rd Hobbit film (Battle of the Five Armies ??? )

Then I tried Unexpected Journey and was surprised, the first one is much better than the other two!
