Yeah I know, watching PJ's King Kong made me think about writing a script. You got a copy of yours handy. I'd love to read it.

Kurt Russell's Jack Burton. (Big Trouble In Little China). The guy's a loser who thinks he's cool! The scene where he fires his machine gun above him and roars aggresively, only to have the plaster from the cieling fall on his head.

Now, that's a hero worth rooting for.

Where Fogg not an option, I'd not have voted - but he was, so I did.

Attila, have you ever seen the TV series "The Secret Adventures of Jules Verne"?
Whole new take on Phileas Fogg...and Passepartout is great as well...

I've seen the ads for it, but sadly never got any further than that.

The old Robert Todd movie is so big, but David Niven's pitch-perfect performance (plus the genuine charm of many of the cameos) makes up for it.

What about Joe Sullivan (aka, Sky Captain)? I have to give him a shout out. I wish they'd make more things about the Sky Captain Universe. To my knowledge, there's just the movie. No comics, no novels, no video games.... What gives? It wasn't that bad of a movie, was it?

There was a novel, but I think that it was just a novelization of the movie.

My favorites behind Indy are Alan Quartermain and Rick O'Connell. And I totally forgot about Sky Captain, I quite liked the movie.

Stewart Granger was good from King Solomon's Mines. He was very swashbuckling. Definitely a forerunner of Indy.

Lara. Her and Indy tie for first place in my book (but I think Indy would come out ahead)

Total respect for your choice!!!
Uncle Scrooge is an AWESOME character, probably my favourite from the Disney universe... and I still consider his official biography (by Don Rosa) as the BEST COMIC BOOK EVER WRITTEN!!

Aye, Scrooge McDuck's a fine adventurer indeed...

But my vote goes to Tintin. All the way!
I think Spielberg would agree

I thought Sky Captain was as close to a genuine Raiders-styled homage film we could possibly get. I adore that flick!!!!!

By the way, G-Man, I don't know how to put a link up for a Word document on a webpage in order to make a link for this site. I could use some instructions, then I'll be happy to share. Be warned, though: The script is very close to the book, often using lines taken straight from the novel, and can sometimes come across as slightly corn-ish. I need to remember to edit it a lot further in the future...

Jack Colton; he's the best by far in my opinion. Close were Fogg, O'Connell, and Croft. I think also, in the theme of Jules Verne, that everybody is forgetting Professor Arronax from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea?! (although Ned Land is more "adventurous" in the movie.)

I love "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea" but wouldn't really call Arronax an "adventurer".
Check out this character, created by the guy who wrote "The Man of Bronze: Doc Savage" books!

What a name...The Peerless Peer!

Ooh, that's a difficult question.

I would probably have to go for Lara Croft, Dirk Pitt, Rick O'Connell and Ben Gates.




But guys. Aren;'t you forgetting someone?

Another character, one that I loved through part of my childhood....

Rupert the Bear.




Well, he did have some incredible adventures.

"If it wasn't for Indy who'd be your favourite adventure character?"

I like all adventure movies, sure Indy is on top , but in this moment and on that question my thoughts goes to Lara. (some time ago I played Tomb Rider, the first one of the game series..and was so cool).

The fact Rich O'Connell is beating Tintin proves you people have no taste.
