Ah, I didn't know that the next goal post move for whether or not Spielberg ought to have "learned a lesson" on making another Indy movie was to how well it did vs all the other Indy movies on domestic box office adjusted for inflation.

Are you sure we're done with that all-time biggest domestic box office adjusted for inflation list?

I think there is more to say about that latest list of yours to further solidify my victory here, don't you?

For instance, how well IJ/Kingdom did at the theater box office vs the vast majority of other movies higher on that list, the previous Indy movies included, that lingered in theaters reaping box office returns months if not years longer than more recent movies like IJ/Kingdom.

Most of the movies on that list of the past half dozen years or so would have moved out of theaters and into home video markets within a few months. Avatar was released on DVD four months after its initial theatrical release. It was essentially the same with IJ/Kingdom.

So the point that the 2008 Indy movie didn't make as much money domestically adjusted for inflation at theater box offices as the Indy movies of 20-25 years earlier when that movie, like virtually all of the biggest hits these days, was destined to move from theaters to home video within a few months while the previous ones lingered in theaters and were re-released in theaters for a much longer time misses a pertinent piece of information provided by that list and ought to be taken into consideration, imo.

I'm sure the studios, distributors and theater owners would take it into consideration if they were presented with that list.

Thought I read someplace that Speilberg would not use the "Tron" trick and make Harrison Ford younger? I agree with a few posters, enough already otherwise look for:
"Indiana Jones and the Social Security Crusade".
