Henry "Potato Head" Jones? Get in. Dunno what they'll call it. Indiana Spud, probably.

Nice cover, too, BTW.

Temple of Doom is hugely under rated, the action is great (mine truck chase?!) and the banter is just as good as any of the others. I suppose given my support for Tim Dalton as the best bond, I guess I'm used to rooting for the underdog.

...it's the only one that feels like it's starting to repeat itself, what with its self-conscious attempts to ape Raiders. The character comedy and Sean Connery make it all worthwhile though. Raiders remains the masterpiece; Temple of Doom is a worthy, exciting and refreshingly different follow-up. As long as Crystal Skull brings a new twist to the table, I'm happy.

I agree with 'Old Pyrate' (and also about Dalton, by the way; Timbo was asked to play a 'New Man', he played a 'New Man', but watch the nastyness of the last scenes of that Disney rubbish, The Rocketeer..........THAT'S how how could have been a brilliant Bond.)


Raiders was too smug and Crusade was just about carried over the line by the Jones boys. The best of the three was easily Doom.

If Channel 4 do yet another of those awful Top 100 programmes, this time concerning 'The best opening 'reel' of any film EVER' what killjoy wouldn't put the stuff in Shanghai and the Himalayas in the top 5?????????

'Anything Goes' in Mandarin? Utter genius.

Crusade was workmanlike in my opinion and a pale imitation of the best bits of Raiders so hopefully this one won't be a Xerox of a Xerox with the Russkies replacing the Nazis and Marion adding to the deja vu. It's down to Shia Leboeuf's character to breathe new life into it really.

Last Crusade is genius if only for the Ford/Connery chemistry, but it's not a patch on Raiders. Then again, Temple of Doom has the best comedic moments of the entire series: fist-waving Indy...."we are going to die". I think that Ray Winstone's character could be more interesting than Shia's - hopefully that's where the comedy will come in.

I can't believe there is even a contest between these 2 movies, not surpising to see the racist Temple of Doom left out entirely (although I am sure there are some numskulls who ignore the wider picture and rather their faces with popcorn).

(Raiders everytime, btw).

This is disappointing news for me.  Crusade, whilst fun, is easily the worst of the films so the idea of the new film being similar tonally to that doesn't bode well.  A film closer in tone to Temple of Doom would be most welcome.

Crusade, the weakest?? You can't be serious. The best action, the best jokes, it's got Sir Sean as Indy's dad for christ's sake! The weakest McGuffin it may have, but I'll say it again. Sir Sean as Indy's dad!!!!

I agree. It's certainly not the weakest. The weakest has to be Temple. Don't get me wrong, all fantastic films, but I judge Raiders and Temple on the same level. I can't choose a favourite - it's too much of a Sophie's choice.

Crusade's the thematically deepest and funniest, but I think Raiders is so much more iconic and a bit more gritty. So the former is my favourite, but the latter is a classic, if you get me. In any case, will Indy finally blow up the Ark, judging from this image?

The pic looks good, just like the rest of them. The Last Crusade is a wonderful film and I would have no problems if KotCS is kept in the same vein.

'cunningmunki': Some people (well, Indians!) think Temple is racist because it shows Indians eating Monkey Brains and Eyeball Soup. When I was a wee lad I remember being at school and some kids, after seeing the movie, actually asked me if I ate Monkey Brains at home. Of course, I told them I did as well as eating live insects, eye-ball soup and the rest of it. Those peeps were not racist, just stupid. Bit like Jade Goody. The other thing that pissed some Indians off was showing devotees to Kali ripping out someones heart as a sacrifice. Devotees of Kali don't do this. Some people consider it racist, but as most people say, it's only a movie!! At least it wasn't as bad as 300 and the Persians!! Good grief!!

Amen, Frank!

I've been saying for years, to anyone who'll listen, that the opening of TOD was the greatest single example of Spielberg's genius.  Opening an action movie with a big Busby Berkley musical number??  And, as you say, in Mandarin?!  I can't watch it without smiling.  Even the little detail of the way the film title appears BEHIND Kate Capshaw.  Then you have Indy at his most Bondian, followed by a fantastic slapstick action sequence in the club, then the car chase, then getting into the villain's airplane, then the life raft...  On and on.  Just pure popcorn bliss.

I'll never understand why this movie was so vilified at the time.  Oooh, too scary for the kiddies.  Ooh, too dark.  Oh, STFU. 

And I agree with you about Raiders too.  I enjoy it, but strangely, not as much as TOD.  "Smug" is an excellent way of putting it.  It's not quite as exciting as it thinks it is - especially the second half which really kind of peters out.  You gotta' love the moment when Indy shoots the master swordsman though.  To this day that may be the biggest earthshaking audience laugh I ever heard in a movie theatre.

Last Crusade is pretty much crap.  The action is fairly lame and it has this sodden feel to it as if Spielberg has lost his joy for this type of film.

Which brings me back to the point of the thread...  Marshall's statement is not very reassuring. 

So it'll be a lot of talking then and very little action??

It's so funny, Harrison Ford looks more like a confused old pensioner than he does Indiana! I'm still finding it very difficult to get excited about this film. I think it's probably the inclusion of Shia LeBeouf - I seem to have a problem with that guy.

I really can't wait any longer for the new Indiana Jones movie, it looks so good and a new picture of it has made me even more exicted! Shia Labeouf looks darn fine and even Harrison Ford looks well though he's sixty-five! I don't know which one is my fave one out of all the films, they are all good full of action and romance. Hopefully this one will be up in my good books and I'm sure it will.
