Re: Indiana Jones: The Quest for Death...aka Harrison says kill Indy!!

Lucas and Speilberg NUKED THE FRIDGE with Indy. Lucas has proven after the Star Wars Prequels and with Kingdom of the Crystal Skull that he has absolutley lost all of his ability in writing and directing. George go home! Leave Indy alone. I don't want you anymore!

Spielberg directed the thing...he's just as much, if not more responsible, than Lucas.

Re: Indiana Jones: The Quest for Death...aka Harrison says kill Indy!!

If Ford wants to kill off Indy on the screen I'm not sure what the problem is. Fans act like they should have more say on what happens with the character than him... Well I'm pretty sure Ford spent more of his life working on Indiana Jones movies than any fan spent watching Indiana Jones movies.

After the mess that was Indy 4 I don't really care what happens with the franchise to be honest.

The problem with killing Indy is that we'd likely have a 20 minute scene made up entirely of CGI and set in the after-life.

You know, I hadn't seen the 4th again until they aired it on cable a couple weeks ago, and I have to begrudgingly admit that the first half of the film works a lot better than I remembered, and actually serves as a pretty cool reintroduction to the character.
Everything up until after the bomb goes off is pretty excellent in had they written some rad Indy adventure leading up that point it would have been a brilliant ending. Even the fridge would have worked in crazy third act action scene context.

The film would have then ended with the 'Top Men' saying that they're keeping an eye on Indy, possibly setting up a sequel.

Yes, I have heard that according to the Young Indy shows, Indy himself survives all the way into the early 1990s.
Lucas considers those wraparounds apocryphal, and has since the VHS releases of the late-90s which excised them. They aren't even on the DVD box sets.
Really? Why does Lucas not like them?
Yeah, what's going on there?

Would they really be expecting me to pay for and watch an Indiana Jones movie where Indiana Jones fucking dies? No chance in hell.

I'd dispute that a poll with 32 participants is a reliable measure of opinion.

If I fail at anything it's typing a coherent sentence and proof reading my posts...In my defence it's bloody cold here and I get punchy when I loose feeling in my fingertips.

There might be something too that. In the previous movies (and in the Bond films for that matter) the prologue sequence is quick, punchy and action packed. This one takes up a good quarter of the film, goes a bit over the top and so blows the proverbial wad before the actual plot kicks in.

I still maintain however that the root of the problem is a lack of chemistry between Ford and that jittery bloke who's name I can't spell.

I also made several compelling arguments as to why The Mummy is the best archeology-flavored adventure movie since Raiders, and roughly 80% of the thread's respondents found it better than at least one Indy flick. You're welcome to debate those arguments anytime.

Re: Indiana Jones: The Quest for Death...aka Harrison says kill Indy!!

I liked the first two Mummy movies; I haven't seen the third. I wish they had cast a different actor in the lead role, but the movies themselves were enjoyable. Not quite Indy, though.

Re: Indiana Jones: The Quest for Death...aka Harrison says kill Indy!!

I enjoyed the elderly Indy segments in The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles and I have no idea why Lucas suddenly decided to edit them out of the series. I rather like the idea that Indy survived a lifetime of dangerous adventures and managed to live to a ripe old age. Beating the odds and dying of old age after a long death-defying life is the way I want Indy to go out.

On screen deaths are never a good idea. Just look at how the death of Kirk was butchered. When one creates a legend, it's always hard to make a pleasing death.
Kirk's death didn't bother me that much, but Data's idiotic death was stupid. And pointless.
