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.

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

The reason you love the indy films? Because every single one of your man-child reviewers is between the age of 28 and 40. You grew up watching these movies and have an unmoving bias and nostaliga for them, Your magazine holds Back To The Future, Die Hard and Indiana Jones (original trilogy) as the greatest example of cinema.

Biased against what? Against you? If you're so down on Empire, why the hell are you a member of the site?

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!

They don't actually. 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.

That Kim Newman must've had a hard paper round.
