I'm looking forward to it.



I am not that negative about everything. If fact, if you met me in real life you would find me to be a very optimistic and positive sort of guy. I just like to have realistic expectations of things, the great thing about that is if it turns out to suck no harm done, if it turns out to be something amazing, then you get to be pleasantly surprised. Honestly, if you compare this poster to any of the other three... alright, alright, it is just a teaser, fair enough. And I am really excited about the rumored scene where Indy outruns a boulder using his walker.

Was he ever on board with this movie?

Not to my knowledge. Well this movie's going to be brilliant. I can feel it. This won't end up like the prequels guys, come on. It's the berg...

I dont know about Spielberg nowadays; his last few films have kind of been so-so. And dont forget the gravitational pull that George Lucas has now on all his film projects....

HIS CHARACTER WAS ORIGINALLY IN THE SCRIPT WITH A SMALL SCENE, BUT THAT WAS REWRITTEN TO USE ANOTHER CHARACTER IN HIS STEAD. HE WAS FLATTERED TO BE ASKED TO REPRISE HIS ROLE, BUT HE'S STICKING WITH RETIREMENT.

So his last filmed performance is LXG. Sean, are you sure that's how you wanted to go out?

Yeah, if I were him I think I would have flown in for the one scene in Indy 4. Even if it does end up being a stinker, it is an Indiana Jones movie, which gives it a massive amount of credit. It would have been a nice looking last credited appearance.

Wow! I can't believe this guys last full time acting job was over three years ago. So used to seeing him in so many movies. I just looked him up on IMDB, and he does the voice over in the From Russia with Love game, that is pretty cool, don't know if the game is any good though. Kind of cool one of his very last jobs was the role of James Bond, even if it was just a video game voice over. That is probably how they talked him into doing it, "Come on Mr. Connery, you don't want your final acting job to have been LXG do you?" "Fine, I'll do the voice over!"

Young Indiana Jones: the next generation?

It's possible but I really don't think it's a good idea, One of the most interesting aspects of the original films is the time period in which they are set.

I wonder if the film will still make reference to the character at all?

They ought to get Roger Moore to fill in as Henry Sr. That would be funny.

Actually, logic would dictate bringing in George Lazenby, wouldn't it? ^_~

Bingo. And that's why I have bad feelings about IJ4. We're not set in 1930s anymore. Let's say that the whole "look&feel" changed drastically after the war.

No Nazis as the bad guys? Soviets would make a good replacement for them in the role of "the scum of the Earth", but... in some other movie! Nazis were obsessed with some obscure and ancient stuff - why would the go to Tibet otherwise? Not to mention their paranormal interests, all of which goes well with the supernatural theme of all 3 IJ movies. Can we say the same about Soviets? No. They claimed that all religions etc. are only to fool people.
Instead of this not-so-probable Soviet expedition we could have remnants of Nazis, who actually fled to South America. Can't you remember all that stupid hoax about Hitler still living in Argentine etc.? And who designed Argentinian jets if not top German engineers? and so on, and so on...
Besides, Germans wear better uniforms - designed by Hugo Boss, after all

If you want to try "Indiana Jones vs Soviets" go play Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine PC game (although I have problems running it on Windows XP).


Darn, we once lost the chance for "Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis" movie (instead all we got was the classic adventure game) and back then it was the last call. Today it's more like beating a dead horse...
I saw the original theatrical release of the Old Trilogy on the big screen and I'm proud of it...
How did I accomplish that (considering my age) is my secret...

Maybe they'll be in South America, and Josef Mengele will play a prominent role.

I would have said Lazenby, but he was just a one shot deal, and Connery got the role back after Lazenby, then ultimately lost it to Moore. I think Moore was the one Connery was competing with when he starred in Never Say Never Again *shudder*. So I figured Moore was the better choice. Neither one would make a very good Henry though.

I agree with ya Dayv, I've actually had that thought myself.

I was pretty much just joking as I'm sure you were, but I thought I'd chime back in to say that you're right. Roger Moore was still the current Bond when Never Say Never Again *lackofshudderbecauseIactuallyrememberenjoyingthatmovie* came out. Kind of a Battle of the Aging Bonds, I guess.

I enjoy Bond movies, and have seen them all, many more than once. However, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Never Say Never Again, and A View to A Kill I have made a vow to myself to never ever watch again. Might be another one on that list, but I can't think of it right now. But I have heard people who list On Her Majesty's Secret Service and Never Say Never Again among their favorites.

Dennis Quiad as Indiana Jones??? Wow! If Harrison Ford were to ever have to be replaced then it is time to stop making Indiana Jones movies.
