What do you mean, "Indiana Jones 5"?  There are only three Indiana Jones movies.
 
2014-03-27 10:44:38 AM
Bradley Cooper aside, I wouldn't mind seeing new IJ movies without Harrison Ford. Have them in the time period from the end of the YIJC to ToD. Lots of fun can be had there, and no pesky Nazis.

You know what?  Good.

Harrison Ford isn't an awesome young guy anymore, but he's unarguably grown into being an awesome old guy.  He's still got the charisma and the ability to straight-face extreme silliness with absolute sincerity that made most of his iconic characters so much fun, I'd rather have him doing his usual thing from a wheelchair than Smarmley Coopsmarm smarming the shiat out of the entire movie and trying to make it self-aware or whatever the fark.

If you're going to cycle the lead actor on Indiana Jones, you need to either find someone with the same easygoing charisma as Ford (good farking luck there) or just... you know, not make any more of the movies.  I'm cool with either of those, but I'd rather just keep the old guy than try the first option and fail.

As long as that d-bag Shia LaPoop is not involved, and they get a better writer, Harrison Ford in another Indiana Jones would be awesome.  Yeah he's old, so was Sean Connery when he did the Last Crusade and he was still awesome in that.

If they hadn't made the last one, they could do an interesting modern day movie. Indy is 110 years old due to drinking from the grail. Remember the first knight brother died after an unusually long life. He could look just like Harrison ford does now. Ford seems like the type who could play an exasperated man out of time like that.

On the one hand, there is only one Indiana Jones: Harrison Ford, even if the last movie wasn't that great (personally I liked most of it).

Otoh, if they reboot every few years with a new actor the same way they do the James Bond movies, that would actually be pretty cool. I think it should stay set in the first half of the 20th century, though, and not updated to the present (the way Bond is). Indy seems a product of the time to me.

Bradley Cooper as Indy isn't the worst idea I've heard. When I saw the rumor that Indy was being re-cast, my first thought was Ryan Gosling and my head exploded, "noo-o-o-o."

I also prefer Ford over Cooper by a mile. Cooper has one character: guy you want to see get punched in the face.

OTOH....Indiana Jones does get punched in the face a lot....

If they're going to do another one, they should get Timothy Olyphant to play Indy.  I think he could really pull off both the humor and cynicism.

So underrated.  How he hasn't made the jump to the big screen yet is beyond me.

However, as long as he (and Goggins and Searcy) keeps making Justified, I'm happy.

Despite some of the ridiculousness of the plot, I did like his character in "Die Hard:Do you really expect me to believe this"?

My vote goes to Joseph Gordon Levitt as Indy with Joe Johnson directing and a five hundred yard restraining order against Lucas from having any creative control.

johnnieconnie: On the one hand, there is only one Indiana Jones: Harrison Ford, even if the last movie wasn't that great (personally I liked most of it).


He's been played by seven different actors, though a few of them were kids, and George Hall played 93-year-old Indy in the TV series.

Harrison Ford is great, but either the movies will stop someday (and I don't particularly want that--Indy films have the potential to be up with the best action-adventure movies out there, and it's not like there are a whole bunch of similar films making us tired of the genre) or he'll have to move on and let someone else take over.  Maybe not now; Ford can still play the part, and he's still legendary.  Eventually, though, I want to see someone else, though I want the new actor to be  good, so no Bradley Cooper.

Critics and viewers aren't the same thing. I see plenty of movies with high RT critic scores, like 78% or 80%, and fans scores like 47%, and vice-versa. "Critically" well received is not the same as 'people liked it'.

Half the movie would consist of him going "Nononononononononono".

Which strangely enough is my reaction to the thought of him in any more Indy movies.

Yup. He seems like he hates acting and everything involved with being a movie star but keeps doing it because owning a fleet of private aircraft and a Wyoming ranch ain't cheap.

That is my own million-dollar wish - SPF would be awesome to do a new prequel trilogy/series set before Temple of Doom (1935) and Raiders (1936). He already IS Indiana Jones - get his noggin back in a fedora and get him crackin'.
 
2014-03-27 02:02:15 PM
I like Temple of Doom and Crystal Skull, and I'll draw the ire of the internet wide as I buy my tickets on opening weekend for Indy 5, 6 and 7.

Once Harrison's out though, so am I.
 
2014-03-27 02:16:39 PM
In my opinion, it's not Harrison's actual age that's aging him out of future 'Indiana Jones' films - it's the fact that Harrison's apparent age is aging Indy out of the decades his character belongs in.

Even if Indy was 35 years old in 1970, the character couldn't be who he is in a movie based in 1970. The whole premise doesn't work. But the fact that Harrison's actual age causes his apparent age to be so many decades away from 1899 when the character's canon states he was born, even if we shift Harrison back to the 1940's, he doesn't *look* like he's 40 - he looks like he's 70. It just doesn't work.

Indy doing the things we love to see him do just doesn't work in a reasonably-recent time period that properly reflects Harrison's apparent age, as much as it pains me to admit it.

I would actually strongly prefer that any more movies made with Harrison take place between Last Crusade and Crystal Skull. It allows for freedom from being married to Marion (which I have no problem with but can be a bit of a drag on globe-trotting adventures), the whole Mutt scenario is not an issue (which I wish had turned out better) and it would take place before the 50's (an era in which a bullwhip-using 50-something-year-old is far less plausible than in earlier times).

He could go after something timeless like Excalibur or Atlantis - there are so many stories that could be done.

(And then I'd like to see a whole bunch of prequels made with Sean Patrick Flanery under the fedora and in the jacket.)

Young Indiana Jones was hit or miss, but for the most part, hit.

I'm surprised more people don't acknowledge its existence.

Yeah, not every episode was great, and there were a few real clunkers, but overall it was enjoyable.

I wish the Belgian Army saga was shorter, and I never got an Indy 'vibe' from Corey Carrier, but Lloyd Owen did (IMHO) a great job as a younger Sean Connery/Henry Sr. and helped make the 8-10y/o episodes more pleasing.

I would have figured it was that mega-douchey magazine interview he gave where he claimed he nailed Megan Fox and/or the plagiarism/art exhibit thing myself.

I wonder if Spielberg's realized that Fox was demonstrating her general lack of knowledge of historical dictators and not trying to make light of the Holocaust when she compared Bay to Hitler at this point given how much of an asshole his little golden child grew into.
