: ...There is no point in making another movie if they cannot make it better than LC - which would be a very tough tassk indeed...
: Why does the next movie have to be better than the last one? Why can't it just do justice to the Indy name by having all the things we expect in an Indy film happen? This continual raising of Indiana Jones to a sacred level is frustrating to understand. Isn't it more important to continue the saga of a character, than to end their adventures forever? Do you think Star Wars' popularity survived on three films alone? No, it was the continual output of new adventures that fans could rely on to make the universe bigger. Books, comics, toys and other merchandise. I think we should all stop defining a characters sanctity by limiting the amount of their appearances. And by the way, that means CHARACTER, not the actor who plays him.
I agree with both of you. You really can't top Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. It's like making a sequel to Independence Day or Air Force One.
But if they do make another Indy flick, they !HAVE! to use Harrison Ford because think of it: When you hear the name Indiana Jones, whose face is the first to pop up. Tom Selleck? I don't think so. The original is always the best.
