Indy lives in Germany and teaches in Leipzig. He gets a call fom a old friend, claiming Mutt's plane got lost during a flight north of the carribbean sea when travelling to a harley meet up. Indy takes the next fligth to bermuda and forgets to take his wife with him. During his flight above bermuda, they get a strange sensation. It looks like a tunnel of light. O dear! All the sudden they find themselves in a cave under the berumda triangle! But what now? Exploring the cave, Indy finds Mutt's Harley, which Mutt had (again) on this plane. But hey... the Harley is not just a bike! It's a machine to travel trough time and space! What a McGuffin! Who would have guessed - And we find out that Mutt is not really Mutt, he's Indys father who travelled back in time to relive his life once more and save Indy in case he gets into danger. This is, when all the sudden Henry appears from behind a rock and there we have the heartwarming Connery cameo. Mutt is history and we have to get back to the surface. How can that be done? It's simple. Indy, remembering his experience with the crystal skull, mentally concentrates on his wife. They start the bike.. jump on and just before starting, he mentaly connects to her back in Leipzig. ZoooommWraaaang... there they stand, father, son and wife in the Jonse's kitchen. Whoaa, what a hello! And then, we see the three of them ride into the sunrise (!) when the raiders theme cheers us up.
I know it may be a bad idea but I'd like the macguffin to be the ark again!
The Grail was great but has been lost, the Sankara stones, meh, and the skull which was the weakest macguffin and is gone also.
So.....The 50's a time of nuclear paranoia and posturing..the Russians have already walked into area 51 looking for the Roswell alien and serendipity presents them with the ark!
Previoulsy unkown to us the Russian soldiers (without Spalko's knowledge) thinking it's just possibly a valuable a gold box take it as spoils of war after Indy escapes and due to the carnage nobody misses it until the post clean up inventory is complete.
Then a cold war race against evil ensues with Indy trying to retrieve the ark, learn more about it whilst the Reds try to work out how to use it as a WMD!
Sallah comes back, Marion and heck throw in the son of Belloch or Toht!
I love that idea I could see hat for an Indy movie
Location: I step on something. Feel like fortune cookie.
Too much goofy comedy. Too much GGI. Not enough action. Not enough booby traps. Not enough usage of the whip. Terrible musical score. Far too soft and childish. Boring.
I know that is exactly what happened with KOTCS, but I just hope it DOESNT happen again. I'm sure I speak for everyone here when I say WE ALL want the action and excitment of Raiders, the horror and terror of TOD, and the heart and emotion of Last Crusade combined into a single film for Indy 5. That, and as little CGI as possible.
Location: Somewhere east of Jupiter, but no where near Mercury. The rent is too high.
The worst thing I could see happening in Indy 5 is a strange, slapstick adventure featuring cameos by [i]every single character still living[i]. Willie will be revealed to have a TV spot oin some terrible 1960s sitcom, in which her catchphrase is 'Anything Goes!' Sallah will have been made out as a retired digger with about fifty grandchildren. Shorty will have become an ivy-league graduate with a degree in archealogy, which he uses to chase Indy around the globe as a--gasp!--rival akin to Rene Belloq! Marion and Willie will team up to become a comedy team with ~clashing opposites!~
In the end, Mutt will marry some hip-and-swingin' coed played by some pop-singer of some such thing, and the credits will roll, set to Life Dould Be a Dream
The very idea makes me sick to my stomach--
The old Indy's used the technology of the day. KOTCS did the same. And KOTCS had plenty of action. In fact, one of the criticisms alot of reviews gave it is that the film was focused too much on the action.
'Last Crusade' had little action, actually.

'Skull' used the whip more than 'Last Crusade'. Musical score was great. Williams can do no wrong.
Too soft/Childish? This is what 'Last Crusade' is like. Indy impersonating a Scottish guy? Henry being a goof all the time? Butchering Marcus/Sallah and making them buffoons?

'Skull's first half was like 'Raiders' and the second half was a hybrid of 'Last Crusade' and 'Temple'. We got a good balance.
