I don't care if they use a lot of CG effects (and they will), as long as they look real and tangible. What I don't wanna see again is obvious CG creatures like the swinging monkeys and that squinting alien. Other than that, they can do whatever they want, but the action should feel dangerous and perilous, when the heroes get hurt, I wanna be able to root for them. Don't look for a joke in everyone and everything.

I just meant TFA captured to the look of the OT a lot better than the Prequels did. The prequels looked nothing like the OT.

For the record, I hated TFA.

Do: Make a great Indiana Jones film with Harrison Ford in the lead role. Make it great and exciting.

Don't: Have Harrison in a minor or supporting role. Do not diminish his character.

To summarize, we want another amazing Harrison Ford Indiana Jones film.

DON'T: expect anything remotely on a par with the original trilogy - with old Indy it just isn't possible for me.

DO: go watch it anyway...

A lot of you made good points.

In addition,

-Do

make the villains more intimidating and formidable.

-Don't

ruin the intensity of an action scene (such as the monkeys part in KotCS).

Marion

I have an idea which could bring the series back to its roots:
The government, circa 1967, learns of a foreign power or private body, interested in getting an artifact to dominate the world. It's an artifact Indy went after years ago. Maybe it's been stolen from a museum or government archive. Or maybe Indy is the only one who came close to finding it.

The CIA/FBI visits Indy at home. Marion cameos, Mutt is said to be off at college or in the army.

The government guys lay out the danger. Indy resists at first, "I'm retired." They remind him of his patriotic duty. "To hell with that old song."
Marion, later, convinces him to go. One last ride. He calls up the government guys. "I'm in."

Cue a scene which pays homage to the early Bond films. Indy is offered an array of gadgets to bring with him. Doesn't need them. Basically, all he needs is his hat, whip and gun.

Government drops him off by plane to where he has to go. South East Asia.

The movie would at points incorporate flash backs to Indy's first attempt at getting the artifact as a way of introducing a new actor. Example Indy is stumped at some booby trap. He flashes back to the 1920s, at this same juncture. The flashback helps him figure out the solution in the present day.

In another touch to early Bond, the villain is an independent bad guy. An industrialist ala Goldfinger. At the briefing scene, a nod to KOTCS coul come in the form of the government saying "We don't know who he's with, but we knows it's not the Russians." Indy: "Thank God."

Just some ideas.

that could work, also with Mutt (as he would be 20+ by now) in the Army at the height of the Vietnam war there could be a side story running where Indy and Mutt meet up, help each other out, join forces etc etc

The only way I could see Mutt joining the Army is to be closer to his father who's leaving yet again. Otherwise, he seems too much of a rebel to want to fight in Vietnam. Sure, he's aged but not very reflective of youth during that time.

Mutt would be too old for most of the Vietnam draft, assuming he's 18 or 19 in 1957. Plus he's of means and education.

Maybe they could just say he was MIA or KIA in Vietnam.
