Reflecting and Ranking the Indiana Jones Films

“Raiders of the Lost Ark” and “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” were easily the better two films of the series and most readily re-watched.

Sean Connery’s addition to this “final” film served to complete the Indy mythology, energize the storyline and the result was nearly equal the original. Unfortunately for “Last Crusade”, “Raiders” had it all, from start to finish, all the great lines, all of the narrow escapes – “Raiders” is not just the better film of the series, but one of the greatest films of all-time.

“Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” and “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” present a totally contrary pair of films to reflect upon. “Doom” was a disastrous dark film with a cheesy climax and poor effects. The only thing that could make “Doom” appear to be a re-watchable film is the dismal “Crystal Skull” which was more of a boring “X-Files” send up rather than an Indiana Jones tale.

I ran across a set of interesting comments and debate at http://www.Flickchart.com

Hopefully to reassure everyone that there is only one or two folks that seriously feel or even consider “Temple of Doom” on the same scale with “Raiders” or “Crusade”
