I'd forgotten about his shirtless scene. Absolutely beautiful.

I wouldn't mind an Indy 5, I like Crystal Skull, only bad point is the alien storyline. Not a big fan of Temple of Doom though, much prefer Raiders & Last Cursade

The whole mine-car sequence is amazing considering it was put together in the pre-CGI era. Spielberg really could make a film at one time.

To be fair, there's a rather horrible deleted scene from TOD which shows, in jerky stop-motion animation, Mola Ram's hand making its way into the chest of the sacrificed man at the start of the Temple sequence, coupled with a prolonged sacrifice. It's pretty disturbing stuff.

They decided to not do another film as Skull flopped. Now Lucasfilm is owned by Disney they are thinking of re-vamping the series with a new actor as Indy.

I never understood how after being in a mine cart for 8 minutes, which must have been heading deeper down into the mine for them to keep moving, they then emerge from the mine and are literally on top of the world

You know... I never thought about that but... yea you're right.

What always did bug me about the film was back at the palace when Willie tries to open a second passage way... where on earth does she think she is going?

The BBC do show the Indy films an awful lot these days. Don't get me wrong, it is an excellent film series-the epic Last Crusade in particular-but showing them all once a year, on your main channel, is a little excessive, given how many times they've been on over the years.

Always has been ; as I've got older I enjoy the other two films much more now as an adult.

I don't count the fourth film ; it is more like fan fiction than a worthy follow up to the original films. The series ended with IJATLC for me. Perfect trilogy.

i like the fourth ..... maybe one or two of the set pieces were a bit too long, but let's face it, we are talking about .....

THE ARK OF THE COVENANT
MYSTICAL STONES
THE HOLY GRAIL

so "aliens" ..... is it such a stretch?

oh and the end of CS is fantastic to watch, just gotta crank that sound UP!!!!!
