    Besides every single thing? Nothing.

    It was fucking terrible. No one in Hollywood wanted to touch that script with a 10 foot pole. That's why it took so long to make. Speilberg, Ford, Connery, EVERYONE told Lucas the story was shit. He disagreed. After about a DECADE of arguing, Lucas agreed to let them bring in another screenwriter.

    They hired Frank Darabount to try and turn that pile of shit into a decent script. He spent an entire year rewriting it (he now refers to it as the biggest waste of a year in his entire life). Everyone liked it so they brought it to Lucas.

    He barely even looked at it and said "No thanks, I still like mine better."

    Lucas is an arrogant twat. Do you know why the goddamn postage was so long in Episode 1?!

    They "ran out of story to tell". That's from Lucas' own mouth on the DVD commentary! Who the HELL would admit that?!

    Lucas is an AWFUL writer. He's fucking terrible.

    Kingdom of Skulls does not deserve to be remembered. Ever.

    Oddly, it's on TV right now.

    Complete and utter shit show. Spielberg bent over and gave into a ton of shitty Lucas ideas, although frankly most of the ideas in Darabont's script were not all that great either ( I remember there being ex-nazi types in south america looking for long lost aliens and their power ).

    Honestly, I think Spielberg phoned this one in, and it was a detriment to the franchise name.
