There are several great scenes in Raiders that have already been mentioned but the great thing about Raiders, and the reason it is my favorite Spielberg movie, is that you can't go two minutes without running into yet another brilliant moment or detail that shows what a genius of a visual storyteller Spielberg was at his peak. So many sight gags, so many moments that give chills--even sometimes just a combination of the image with the score--so many deft character interactions, so many different ways in which Spielberg fills you with awe, laughter, or excitement through what you're seeing and hearing. It's just pure, unbridled, inspired entertainment and, to me, the epitome of entertainment as art through the sheer grace and beauty of HOW it entertains.

that's just it, the first three Indy films mined our deepest mythos. the fourth dabbled in our sci-fi.

it's a dramatic paradigm shift for the series and i don't think Crystal Skulls was able to make it work. the character of Indiana Jones, the adventurous archaeologist, i think is much more resonant as this avatar who interacts with the things of the past as opposed to what may be in our future.

also, i'm sorry, but everything in the jungle was a CGI eye-sore of a colossal magnitude. and i'm not a CG hater.

Aliens ARE in our deepest mythologies....thats why there's theories about them visiting our earliest ancestors. That's why the film took place in the jungle, with ancient civilizations...because it IS part of our past. The very subject of the Skulls goes back thousands of years....so ya.

The crystal skulls were invented in the 1800's. I don't believe they ever existed before they were created by a German jeweler at that time.

Aliens or something like them might be attributed to myth but it's still a stretch to make that connection to what we see as aliens now to what they saw as aliens then.

What if a fifth Jones film expanded on the aliens, and they were actually sidhe?

I had no problem with it being aliens, the posters, trailers and title alone made it very obvious, i think the films problems were others

Well this has SW infused in this, but if it's true, then great!

Quote:
Han Solo, Harrison Ford, is back and onboard for Episode Seven, but that's not all. As part of the deal, steps have been made which raise the possibility of Ford donning the famed Fedora hat of Indiana Jones once more.

A verbal agreement with Ford to play Han Solo once more has been in principle place since before the Disney deal. Over the course of this summer financial settlements were reached. The outstanding points that had dragged on but are now resolved are:

Ford wanted to see the synopsis for his character's development over more than just Episode 7. He saw this in August and is happy with the story arc.
Ford wanted a commitment to Indy 5. He did not get this as there is no plot line or script in place. What did happen was an agreement was made wherein an outline would be developed by the end of calendar year 2014, and if all parties can agree to it moving forward, efforts would be made to move on Indy 5 for release before the end of 2016.
Disney wanted a multi film deal with Ford which transcends Episode 7. This has now been agreed.
Exciting news indeed from the Jedi Master. Fans can breath some relief that Han Solo is back, and while we can't quite say Indiana Jones 5 is coming it is exciting that conceptually it's back on the table.

As ever, until confirmed by Lucasfilm, Disney or Bad Robot this is just a rumour, and should be treated as so.

It's almost too good to be true but has just enough disappointment to be believable and not just some fanboy dream rumor.

Ford must really want to make Indiana Jones 5, from his constant talk about not being very interested in Han Solo but being open to Indy, and now this. If this is true then it will be good for both parties involved.

1891 if we go with Ford's age.

Yeah, that really does seem to be the case. In the end, if true, it is indeed a win for both parties.

That night when you let the Cuban raiders into our camp in Iraq.

Or maybe that was just my LSD talking

Good chance it's the LCD.

Your Cuban raiders story did make me laugh.

If you go by the Young Indy tv series of the 90s the old aging Indy says he was born in 1899 making him late mid to late 30s in parts 1-3 and 58 in part 4.

I wonder if Indy is still alive in 2013 just waiting for 'Indiana Jones 8' to be made.

Harrison has always liked Indy. Ford has been phoning in many performances in recent years. However, you can really tell when he's actually interested in a film and is really trying. Indy 4 was on such case, he was clearly enjoying playing the character again. He also was really good in 42.

I liked his Branch Rickey.

Ford has always seemed to like the Indiana Jones character. Certainly moreso than Han Solo. So Ford wanting to do another Indy film wouldn't surprise me.
