: : Duh, we're all here because of our undying fondness for Indiana Jones. But what attracted us to him? I didn't watch Raiders until a few years ago, and I was blown away by it. I thought, the other films must be good, so I'll get those. Ever since, I've been an Indy and a Harrison Ford nut. What caught your eye? The music? A scene? You just like Ford? What? Tell us.
: Well, I was born in '80 so I've sort of watched the Indy movies all my life. But I really didn't start appreciating them until about 4 years ago. I guess as I got older, there was this large void in my life as if there was something missing. It was an emotional gap of my deep psyche that wouldn't allow me to determine who I am. But, more than that, I needed a hero. Not just a comic book hero with goofy powers, mind you, but a real hero. A hero with character. A hero with more than catchy one liners and bulging biceps. A hero that could help me through my life and guide me in ways I needed. So I rediscovered Indiana Jones. I know this sounds sappy, but it's true.
bez: i have to say i know exactly what you mean - ever since i saw temple of doom on tv 2 years ago i have been hooked on indy specifically and harrison in general. if i have to go a long time(like a month, if we're on holiday or somethng) without being able to watch a film with him in it, i get withdrawal symptoms!
p.s. how old are you?
