: I was watching "The Rocketeer" on video yesterday and it got me to thinking of all the movies that have been made purely on the success of the Indy Jones trilogy. There have been some good ones and some bad ones. My favourite 1930 style High adventure movies are "The Rocketeer", "High Road to China", "Romancing the Stone", and I may be the only person in the world who likes "Jake Speed". There have been some that are not bad "The Shadow", "The Phantom" and "King Solomon's Mines". However I hate "Allan Quatermain and the Lost city of Gold", and many of the cheap Italian rip offs such as "Captain Yankee and the Jungle Raiders", "Hunters of the Forbidden Cobra" and "Treasure of the four crowns". I was very partial to an old tv series called "Tales of the Golden Monkey".
: Has anyone else got any favourites? Or are there any that you hate like Indy hates snakes.
: If you want THE hilarious, adventure clone, look know further than Kurt Russell as the irrepressible Jack Burton in "Big Trouble in Little China". Thank God TBS still plays every now and then.
"You know what old Jack Burton would do at a time like this?"
"Well...I don't know. But he'd think of something."
