Diamonds Are Forever? or Moonraker?

Diamonds Are Forever and Moonraker are pretty much on par with the most of the other Bond films. To enjoy any of the old ones you have to be able to appreciate a bit of cheese.

Even if he was replaced by Tom Selleck?

There is an alternative universe out there were Tom Selleck is Indiana Jones, Kurt Russel is Han Solo and Alec Baldwin played in all three Jack Ryan movies. In this universe, Harrison once had a minor role in an old film called American Graffiti, then spend the rest of his career as a set builder for Fox studios. Interestingly enough, in that same universe Mark Hamil is a huge action star who has landed countless lead roles since his climb to fame from a once popular sci-fi movie titled Star Wars. Star Wars has a large cult fanbase, but it never managed to produce any sequels, its director and writer decided he had had enough fun with sci-fi and decided to move on to more serious film making. Another thing about that universe that is worth mentioning, is the fact that Firefly is beginning its fifth season.

I think the poster looks awesome. It looks very much like Temple of Doom, but I have a good feeling about this movie. The cast, aside from Shia, who is only so-so, is pretty stellar. I especially love the fact that Ray Winstone is in this movie, he is awesome. And come on, Marion is back! I have a little bit of faith in this one. But if the movie sucks, oh well, I wouldnt be too let down. Right now I'm just happy theres a NEW Indiana Jones adventure awaiting me.

Except the Berg's a truly great director... everything lucas wants to pretend he is. That considered, it's extremely easy to have a lot of faith in this... The only doubt I have is shia. He may end up being a minor annoyance.

I finally saw Transformers this weekend, and my hopes for this new Indy movie went down quite a bit. However, Shia's performance may have only been bad because of Michael Bay's t'aint.

NEW DETAILS FROM USA TODAY AND SCI-FI WIRE...


Indy 4 Details Revealed

USA Today revealed details about the upcoming Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which it said is set in Cold War 1957.

Citing co-producer Frank Marshall, the newspaper said the fourth installment in the hit franchise deals with a quest for South American relics with supernatural powers.

Meanwhile, Indy has settled into a quiet life as a professor, the newspaper reported. But once the archaeologist is thrust back into danger, the adventure will take him to New Mexico, Connecticut, Mexico City and the jungles of Peru.

Indy will face off against operatives from the Soviet Union, including Oscar winner Cate Blanchett as the seductive Agent Spalko.

Ray Winstone (Beowulf) co-stars as an unethical rival archaeologist. Shia LaBeouf sports greaser hair and rides a motorcycle as the hero's sidekick.

Crystal Skull will also revisit bits from other films, including Karen Allen's Marion Ravenwood character from 1981's Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Marshall added that the artifact of the title is inspired by real quartz sculptures of disputed origins that are carved in a way that defies the natural structure of the crystal. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull opens May 22, 2008.

please not a temple of doom clone or another raiders clone like last crusade as much as i like that movie, LOL.

i hope it is a good film.

Raiders is legendary and cannot be touched has to be on my top 10 list of all time for movies.

But with out the Temple or doom!!

More of a Kingdom and a Skull kinda thing



I had my reservations at first..ol' Harry being too old and what not, (just watch firewall...man he looks past it in that film) but I'm actually really looking forward to watching Indy again at the cinema. I think it's gonna be a lot of fun. I'll just try and not set my hopes too high again...like a certain Star Wars film....

Well, this movie certainly has one thing going for it that the prequels didn't... the original characters. Well, Indy at least, and that's something. True, the prequels did arouse our excitement at seeing a new Star Wars on the big screen, but how cool would it have been to see Luke and company in action again? I was three when Last Crusade came out, so I've never gotten to see that character in a movie theatre before. This movie may be bollocks (not "the bollocks" or whatever the good phrase was), but I am certainly excited at the moment at least to think of seeing Indy on the big screen.

Not that that is going to stop you from dreaming… Only in this case, Gaffer is actually a guy.

I was 8 when Last Crusade came out so I saw it in the cinema (it was my friend Russell's birthday, if I recall). I remember shitting myself when the guy turns into a skeleton after drinking from the wrong grail.

Come on man! You gotta admit it was pretty scary!
And no CGI in sight! That's one thing I'm worried about with this new Indy - they say they're doing it old school, but are they really?

IF THEY CAN STILL MAKE ACTION MOVIES WITHOUT CGI (THE BOURNE SERIES AND CASINO ROYALE) THEN THERE'S NO REASON FOR THEM TO USE IT IN THE NEW INDY FILM.



AS A SIDE NOTE EVERY TIME I HEAR "CASINO ROYALE" I WANT TO SAY "CASINO ROYALE WITH CHEESE." DAMN PULP FICTION.

I distinctly remember sitting on the bus on the way to school one day on 1st grade (musta been 1993ish) and just being terrified of what I had seen the night before. It was the most bizarre and creepy thing I'd seen in my life so far but also really when I started to love and become interested in special effects. A few weeks later however...I was introduced to Star Wars and the rest as they say.....was fuckin awesome.

Hey look, a bear!

Personally I would rather have a TOD clone than a Raiders clone--we already have Last Crusade for that. TOD is my personal version of the way Indy should be--hacking through a jungle in search of ancient stones and gems, not fighting Nazi's and commies for Christian symbols. To me that aspect was always kind of tired, especially when Crusade basically repeated it all. The opening sequence to Raiders is what I always thought the franchise should have had as its heart, and thats what most of the imitators like Tomb Raider and Romancing the Stone sourced.

Isn't that the warehouse from the end of raiders? Is the government going to use the ark against the Soviets?

It kind of looks like the warehouse, but shouldn't the stacks of boxes be taller? And the warehouse was "infinitely" huge, whereas that one looks a bit smaller. They would've been better off with the matte painting instead of trying to make an actual warehouse.
