The question came up in a recent Avatar Contest. I submitted an av of Marion from Raiders of the Lost Ark (Theme was tough women), but it was rejected because the thread starter feels that the Indy films are Science Fiction and Fantasy. "My thread/contest my rules." Which is fine. But it did make me curious. Me, I classify them as action/adventure like the Bond films. They might have fantastical elements (mystic/religious objects for Indy. Hi tech gadgets for Bond) but at its core its about exotic (Terrestrial) locals, daring escapes and fights by a guy in a hat armed with a gun and a whip. Indy is a modern take on the Allan Quatermain/Jungle Jim type not Buck Rogers/Flash Gordon.
