With the fourth installment in this epic series to be released in exactly two weeks, I thought it was about time we had a thread about it. What do you all think about these movies, the TV show, the point and click adventure games, and every other facet of this series?
I believe that all and all (please don't kill me) the Indiana Jones trilogy is better than the Star Wars films. I love these movies to death and can't wait for Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. It also has the coolest ride ever.
Doctor Jones! Doctor Jones!
Raiders and Empire Strikes back were both awesome. Return and Temple both sucked because they threw in spunky kid/Ewoks for some unknown reason.
Then again, I completely forgot what happened in Raiders of the Lost Ark, so I'll probably need to watch it again soon.
Also: No time for romance Dr. Jones.
I agree, Temple of Doom was mediocre at best, but Raiders of the Lost Ark and the Last Crusade were awesome.
I'm looking forward to the new one, although the recent sequelities that washed over Hollywood is really getting on my nerves.
Back on track: I'm all for the fourth Indy movie. I just spent the last couple weeks re-reading the entire series of "Indiana Jones and the [insert subtitle here]" novels, all 12 of them, to get myself back in the mood for some good adventure movie fun. Sure, they're not high literature, but they make for good, light, pulp reading. I'm not going to be going into the movie expecting something on the quality of the first or third ones, but I'm still expecting some decent action.
Back on topic: I hope the new Indy movie brings hats back in style. I want hats to come back in a big way.
