that's just it, the first three Indy films mined our deepest mythos. the fourth dabbled in our sci-fi.
it's a dramatic paradigm shift for the series and i don't think Crystal Skulls was able to make it work. the character of Indiana Jones, the adventurous archaeologist, i think is much more resonant as this avatar who interacts with the things of the past as opposed to what may be in our future.
also, i'm sorry, but everything in the jungle was a CGI eye-sore of a colossal magnitude. and i'm not a CG hater.
