1. Last Crusade. The story, action & comedy was great.
2. Temple of Doom- Short Round was the best new character in this movie.
3. Raiders of the Lost Ark- Only because I've seen this one a bunchof times.

Hi! I'm new! I voted Raiders! But it's very closely followed by Crusade!
These movies are my favourite of all movies and I know them by heart.
I chose Raiders because it's the first and I like the simplicity of the story.
Nowadays,movies are drowned by their multiple plots and characters.

Raiders and Crusade were both great. Temple, IMO, it lacked the greatness from the first and third. I much prefer it when they're being chased by Nazis and looking for a religious artifact rather than infiltrating a cult Indian temple. I liked having small bits of mystical things happen in the first and last, but the second just went too far, an Indian who can rip people's hearts out, voodoo dolls, etc. Also, it wasn't Globe trotting at all. The went from Shanghi to India, those were the only two places they went in the entire film. I believe Spielberg and Lucas noticed that ToD wasn't as good as Raiders so they went back to the Raiders formula for the third. Also notice how Raiders and Crusade both made more than Temple in it's box office run. But for an up, I really loved the opening scene of Temple of Doom. I'm not sure but I think it was an homage to James Bond(the tux and margarita).

Raiders is far superior to its sequel and prequel in my eyes.

well, i love every single Indy movie, but i think Raiders is my favorite. I don't know why, i guess it is because i like the whole ark story.

P.S.: My first post on this board...

Which Indy film is the best?

After numerous arguments, biases and debates, the jury is still out. Which Indy film is, unequivocally, the best? You must choose, but choose wisely.

Maybe we can sticky this so people can vote as they see the new film and decide.

I'll wait until Thursday to vote... but it may take at least 12 months (and several viewings) before I can really determine how I feel about KOTCS after having circa 30 years of reflection on the other three.

No matter what choice we make, it's all subjective. One might as well just ask which is your favorite INDY movie.

And that is very true, which is why we have been discussing personal biases and preferences and how they influence subjective opinions and perceptions but, as with any poll, the objective is to collate data to compare the responses against the results.

I will wait to vote till I see KOTCS, but I'm pretty sure my vote will still go to Temple.

I'm gonna get flamed for this, but Last Crusade is currently my favourite film. Raiders and it may eventually trade off, but for now it's Crusade.

Let's hope Kingdom is at least better than Temple. I'll tell you after midnight tomorrow night.

Thursday, I will cast my vote. Right now it's ROTLA, but KOTCS may win my 2nd fav. LC & TOD are tied to me.

Yeah, I don't think you can decide which one is the best, becasue everyone likes different films better then others. I for one think ROTLA is the best, others don't, no big deal, and I think KOTCS may take my place as favorite, for other it won't, that's it.

Its about a year or two premature, I think. It will take months or maybe a year for people to come to a final decision on what the film is like. Initially people's perceptions of the film's quality will be blinded by the fact that its brand new and fresh.

For some but I think most will know once they've seen it which one is the best.
