Indiana Jones: Odd Good, Even Bad

Posted on 2009/02/27 00:13:07 (February 2009).

[Wednesday 25th February]
Continuing in last night's theme we watched Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom tonight. Whilst it was still quite entertaining, and obviously a million times better than the Crystal sodding Skull, it really wasn't quite on the same level as Raiders of the Lost Ark.

By coincidence I had watched The Last Crusade fairly recently on the TV, which I think I like almost as much as Lost Ark, which has led me to believe that there is in fact a pattern here - the odd numbered films are good, the even numbered films are bad. If Harrison can be persuaded to do one more before chronic arthritis prevents him using a bull whip than there could still be a hidden gem waiting for Indiana Jones fans.

I'd like to propose Indiana Jones and the Failing Economy in which he runs around and beats up people from the financial industry, leading up to the climactic scene in the film were all the banks collapse. Clearly not that strong of a link with archaeology, but then that didn't really seem to be a problem in the Crapstal Skull.

Good entry! We're so different, John, and yet of the same mind! You actually made me laugh there! Well done, you!

Well the script could start off with the search of the famous penny coin, the very first ever made, so that it has an archaeological twist to it! May I propose that he also kicks JW Bush in the nuts while beating the bankers?
