It’s not often you see a director dream team. Often one is hands-off as a producer, shepherding or “godfathering” the film to the screen with the director’s vision.

But Takes Full Credit For Nuking The FridgeWhile the film has its delusional defenders, most rational people can agree that "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" was pretty bad. A stain on an otherwise solid trilogy -- yes, even the uneven 'Temple of Doom' -- taking the pulpy good times of the previous three films into outrageous sci-fi territory, the result was a movie that even managed to make Cate Blanchett look ridiculous. And while Shia LaBeouf got pilloried for trashing the movie -- Harrison Ford recently called him "a fucking idiot" for his comments -- it looks like Steven Spielberg is finally ready to own up that the movie was a dud (sort of). And he puts the blame squarely on the shoulders of producer/visionary/bajillionaire George Lucas.
