: : : Should it be like Raiders, adventurous, supenseful, thrilling; Temple of Doom, dark, scary, freedom-fighter; Last Crusade, humorous, colorful, (only a few seconds of the Indy march music), fun actioner, or should it have a tone all it's own.
: : : BTW, I realize that some of you might not agree with the adjectives I used. I was just trying to individualize each movie.
: : : -Mithrandir-
: : I think it should have more action and they should make the action weird and humerous. Ex: Indy has to fight a giant alligator and slams him face first into a wall. He wins the fight of course, but afterwards he is so beat up he can barely talk. Stuff like that. A somewhat darker tone (not as dark as ToD) could help to.
: a what? is this something you've really dwelled upon? give more details. i'm interested in this. you're right that it would be weird; the humor part...laughing WITH the movie, or AT the movie?
Laughing WITH the movie. It doesn't necessarily have to be a giant alligator, but just something weird like that. Plus, the action has to have more humor in it. I'm not talking slap-sticky humor, I'm talking like "Ooh, that's gotta hurt!" humor. You know, like in Tod the thugee fell on the tracks and the cart full of guards behind him tripped over him, flew off the tracks, smacked into some wooden beams and finally splashed into the water. I never laughed harder in my life when that happened. I want to see some more of that.
