I agree it's the worst part (of a film I generally like) though I don't quite agree with that sentence. I thought that the film was so determined to make this portion of the film a rollercoaster...

What sold the idea of Fillion as Indy for me (years ago now; I think that time has passed) was something he said on the commentary track for Serenity regarding his action scenes. He said he tried to...

Despite being ludicrously ever-hopeful, this news is the first time I've come close to giving up hope for a fifth film.

That being said, Ford was MIA for a great deal of the action in ToD, and that...

Yeah, I've heard that too, but I'm yet to see it. The Rover is about to be released in Australia, however, so I'll see how he performs in that.

One thing's for sure, he'd have to bulk up a little...

I couldn't tell you what year it was, but I first saw Temple of Doom in the 80s on VHS with my dad. He'd seen it before, and thus dutifully covered my eyes for the heartripping scene. He did...

If you watch the video, I think you'll find that it DOES focus on the real problems. Red Letter Media's got a pretty good track record on that count, IMHO - its dissection of the Star Wars prequels...

I'd completely forgotten about the line stolen from Independence Day. That was strange. I almost wondered if Darabont had done it accidentally. Unless it was an intentional reference to the fact...

Good point. It's frustrating that we have so many gaps. What's with the professionalism of all these writers, not wanting to burn bridges and sneak the stuff onto the web?! :p

I'd have to go with the Darabont version also. After reading that, my enjoyment of KotCS decreased somewhat, if only because I now knew what COULD have been. To me, it was more of a coherent story,...

I don't mind the idea of Indy V featuring an old/young Indy, to get us used to whichever actor steps into Ford's shoes. I think it would enable them to come up with a story a little different from...

I for one loved Darabont's screenplay. However, he clearly gave it his all with that one. I'd be surprised if he really had a completely different Indy script in him.

Sure. I understand and agree with the general mood around here, which is that he should be sent to a remote location so that a film possibly set in the 60s doesn't feel too modern day. As long as...

I did just see Robert Redford in All is Lost a few weeks ago. As a 76/77 year old, he was reasonably convincing in a physically demanding role. There were some obvious stunt double moments, but...

If the (very vague and insubstantial) rumours about a further two films are true, I think our chances of this increase somewhat. If they knew they were making two films, they could do one with Indy...

Erm, not to start an argument, but I LIKED the use of sets instead of real locations. I thought it gave the film that real old school movie serial feel, and isn't that how most of the Indy movies...
