The 30 Reasons Why We Love Indy | 29. That You Can Join It Any Point When It's On Telly And Keep You Watching To The End
29. That You Can Join It Any Point When It's On Telly And Keep You Watching To The End

Science has proven with the aid of a rat, a clipboard and everything that it is physically impossible to flick to another channel once you have accidentally stumbled across any of the Indiana Jones films on telly*. No matter at what point you join, you know there will be a much-loved joke or action moment just around the corner and, yes, The Apprentice will have to wait until you've seen the bit where he beats up Pat Roach.

*Science has not proven this, but it's true.

Odd dates too. A 40yo would have barely been 10 when Raiders came out so for it to be as successful as it was (top 20 inflation adjusted box office of all time) it clearly had a much wider appeal than a bunch of 10yos.    Also - slightly sexist. Not all Empire reviewers are male. More

Glad to see this article focuses mainly on the original trilogy and not on that bag of sh*te Skull. And what was that bit about Spielberg 'using practical effects and stuntmen wherever possible' on the 4th film?? Ants? Jeep swordfight? Waterfall? Aliens? Spaceships? Magnetic gunpowder? Fridges? Pyramids? MONKEYS!!!!!!! Christ it's difficult to think of a scene where Lucas.....sorry Spielberg DIDN'T use any CGI. Hang on....was Ray Winstone real or was he this film's Jar Jar Binks?....cos he was equally as annoying! More

9 Marcus Brody?
I'm biased obviously but surely he deserves an entry here? And Pat Roach deserved his own entry! More

10 Pat Roach
The late great Pat Roach kicking Indys arse in three different characters is the reason alone to love Indy trilogy. And the reason why Kindom of the Crystal Scum sucked so badly. No Pat equals no good Indy movie. More
