Saturday Matinee: Indiana Jones!

200px-Indiana_Jones_in_Raiders_of_the_Lost_ArkEvery now and then I find a movie or clip that I think will appeal to the fans of this blog. Since most of you enjoy action/adventure, I tend to focus on something that falls into that category. This week we’re looking at one of the greatest heroes in cinematic history… the one and only Indiana Jones!

I’ve read all the Indy novels, own all the movies and I’m very passionate in my belief that we need even more Indy in the future! I don’t want any remakes or reboots — just cast somebody new and do a new story! The way they used to do James Bond before they rebooted that series.

C’mon, Disney, let’s do this!

The original film is Raiders of the Lost Ark, which in my opinion is one of the greatest films of all time.

The second film is Temple of Doom and it features a really fun opening song-and-dance number:

The third film, The Last Crusade, is many people’s favorites but I don’t think that it has held up as well as the first two movies. It’s still Indy, though! And this time you have his dad along for the ride!

The last film was Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and while it had many, many flaws, I still thought it was good fun. Loved seeing Marion back, too.
