TOD is taut, lean, assured and brutal. It doesn't waste time and gets right to the point. Raiders is a classic film but for today's audiences would be a bit slow and exposition heavy. I mean, even as...

I wouldn't mind seeing a cartoon that showed off Indy's WW2 years. It's a great way to have a lot of adventures, given the serial esque nature of a cartoon, and, if fans wanted and he was willing,...

If we're being honest though, the one Indy film that really calls for an energetic young director is TOD. Raiders has plenty of action but there is a skillfullness and finesse to those action scenes...

How much of KOTCS being mediocre was Lucas pushing a film on Spielberg that he had no interest in making, though? As far as Koepp and Kaminski - With Koepp, it seems he was brought in at the last...

What level of action does an "action serial pulp" need consist of that Indy (let's say Indy, the character, at age 66, as opposed to Ford's real life age) can't do?

In an age where you have John...

There's subtle changes yes. But outside of keeping a leather-type jacket and a fedora, I think it would've been more realistic to shake his outfit up from film to film more often. Look at the way...

Not really. You don't seem to have known many people over age 65. "It is an insult to the natural world." A little melodramatic, no?

John Wayne was 69 years old and suffering from cancer when he...

I think no matter how that film comes out you'll be disappointed simply because Harrison is involved tbh.

I actually consider TOD to be my favorite Indy film. Indy is at his most anti-hero here; the film is like a relentless rollercoaster. The darkness of it is pulp at its very best. It's a well-crafted...

Indy's "costume"

I know his leather jacket and fedora thing is iconic, or at least was in the 80s and 90s, but does anyone else feel that the concept of Indy wearing what is basically a costume take away from the...

Why did Spielberg never direct an episode?

If it does take place in 1968 that would actually be cool. Indy would have had a full 60 years of adventures under his belt, taking into account the Young Indy series (whose first adventure is set in...
