Ranking the Joneses

1. Raiders of the Lost Ark: One of the best action movies of all time and the face-melting scene is the coolest special effect ever.

2. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: Another great action flick with lots of humor and some of the best actors (Ford, Connery, Phoenix, Rhys-Davies) in Hollywood at the time.

3. The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles: A fun TV show that does much more justice to the background of these beloved characters than Lucas does with the Star Wars prequels.

4. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull: It is good to see Karen Allen in a leading role again, but where the hell is Sallah? How did the Ruskies get to Area 51 unnoticed? Am I the only person uninspired by Shia LaBeouf?

5. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom: Some of the action scenes are sweet (the mining car ride especially), but plot and dialogue flounder in comparison to the first and third films. The namby-pamby liberal in my also can't help but find this film mildly racist.

I'll take another film about Crystal Lake over the Crystal Skull. But you're right about Karen Allen....her appearance was the best thing in that movie. I know there are people that loved the last film, but I'm just not one of them.

IMO The Last Crusade was the best of them all hands down! I just couldn't get that into the Crystal Skull. I put it right up there with going to a Rolling Stones concert.
