Indiana Jones IV Won't Be CG Heavy

Everyone knows that Indiana Jones IV is currently out filming around the world, most recently at Yale in New Haven, Connecticut. The local newspaper the New Haven Register got to chat with producer Frank Marshall about the project and its filming around the city, in which he discussed that director Steven Spielberg is trying to limit his use of CGI and keep it much more realistic.
Marshall said that they wanted to shoot this newest Indiana Jones in the same style as the first three, which given they came out back in 1981, 1984, and 1989, that means limiting the use of CGI as much as possible.
"Steven is very aware of the process and we're not cheating with CG (computer graphics) at all," Marshall said. "It keeps the B movie feel."
Although I'm a bit curious was to what they mean by the "B movie feel," since I really don't think the first three Indiana Jones felt like B movies, this does sound like the right direction to head in. Who isn't confident in Spielberg's abilities by now?
