Hmph. I'd take Kate Capshaw over that mannequin-stiff Alison Doody. (Doody is right!)
I'd take either over Cate Blanchett. She's nice and all, but I prefer Indy when Harrison Ford's Q rating is higher than his leading lady's.
Doody plays a tiny role in Last Crusade; it's ridiculous and unfair to count her uninspired performance against the rest of its awesomeness. (Plus, she was playing a Nazi sympathizer! She had to be stiff and unlikable! Spielberg didn't equivocate on the black-and-white of evil until Munich, and barely even then.)
I couldn't agree more about Blanchett. She's obviously come down with a case of Morgan Freeman disease– she can't seem to say no when anyone offers her a part.
I'm saving my thoughts on the new Indy for when you post your review.
