I love this idea, but after the lame #4 re-make, I'm skeptical. Please
redeem yourselves with a decent 5th movie that will let us all remember Indiana
in a good way and let's let Harrison Ford go out while he's still at
the top of his game! I agree with the comment about having JJ Abrams as
Director-he is awesome!!!
Harrison Ford seems set to take the record for oldest actor to have a lead role
in an action film.
I love the Indiana Jones series more than Star Wars; however the constant
superhero film making needs to stop. I was tired of it 10 years ago.The fact is, Hollywood is going to continue making superhero movies and try to
jumpstart these past highly successful movie franchises until people stop going
Indiana Jones movies have always been sci-fi, eg: melting Nazi faces, but the
Crystal Egg-skull was the worst. Like the Russian Die Hard, these later movies
are devoid of the spirit that made the originals instant classics. But hey,
let's see how Independence Day 2 does this summer.
@Faith + Virtue + KnowledgeI'd never thought about it that way
before! Thank you for bringing it up. In a loud chorus for superficial things
to make movies awesome, sometimes what really makes them appealing is hard to
recognize and pin down.
Young Moderate,I agree completely! Hollywood is too scared to take
risks with investment. And ultimately that shallow kind of investing only
saturates a market until it grows too frail to sustain itself. If they are going
to, I at least hope they don't do as bad as they've been doing. But
really, I want new stuff.I don't want Star Wars 30 someday. I
want a new idea, a new universe to explore. Until they do that, they'll
All Indiana Jones films have religious themes. The two successful films had
Judeo-Christian themes. The Hindi one got freaky and weird with human sacrifices
in a fire pit. The Mayan one got even more weird with aliens.Disney,
please don't mess it up again!He's an archaeology
professor in a race against a threatening enemy looking for religious artifacts,
only to find out there is some truth to the mysteries surrounding the treasures
they seek. He's a man who doesn't want to believe, but comes to
believe. He's also firmly a scholar as well. It's not hard! Just stay
true to what makes the story Indiana Jones and you got it! I'm not sure the
enemy can be as effective as the Nazi's were for the sake of cinema
appeal.It's a lot easier to stay true to a format you already
have than to mess it up. It's not about the treasure. It's about an
adventure and the characters we've come to love. And if you're going
to hand it off to the younger generation, make sure we love the new character!
Dear Hollywood,As much as I enjoyed movies like Indiana Jones, Star
Wars, Jurassic Park, and others growing up, I am ready for something new please.
Another Marvel movie doesn't count...
Maybe they can get JJ Abrams to direct. Maybe they'll kill of Indiana
Jones as well.
The last one was a bust. Hopefully for this one they will reutrn to something
other than SiFi.
