All Indy, all the time

I don’t know how familiar y’all are with Lego Star Wars, the video game, but…well, basically it’s a Star Wars video game in a Lego world. And it’s hilarious.Anyway, the complete saga promos the next Lego movie adventure game: Indiana Jones. You can even play as his character in the Star Wars world, and Indiana Jones whappin’ Darth Vader upside the helmet with his bullwhip is some wicked funny stuff.That’s when we realized the boys had never seen Indiana Jones.


Now here we are with the entire trilogy, having an official “Indiana Jones” day. We just finished up Temple of Doom and now we’re ten minutes into The Last Crusade.

I’d forgotten how madly delicious Harrison Ford is as Indiana Jones.

So…Indiana Jones or Han Solo? How do you like your Harrison Ford?

    Definitely. Indiana Jones, without a doubt. Move #4 comes out May 22nd (in case you were wondering). :popcorn:

    Okay, that’s scary. I just watched ROTLA and TTOD with Ryan yesterday.

    We were watching these a week or so ago…. do you cover their eyes for the scary bits? There are still some bits *I* can’t watch…

    And I’ll take Indiana for everyday and Han Solo for the weekends, please…

    So weird – we realized the same thing and bought the trilogy for our boys for Christmas. And I realized how I’d forgotten magnificently hot Harrison Ford was as Indy.

    I gotta say I love him in both roles, though. Totally irreverent, brainy, brawny and delicious. I was always a Han girl instead of a Luke girl, too.

    Luke who? :cowboy:

    And the short kid heard “close your eyes…wait…wait…okay, you can look now” a lot, especially during the second one. And I made him leave the room for the dinner party and for the scene in which Chief Mumbo Jumbo reached in and pulls the guy’s heart out of his chest. I’d forgotten how off the wall the Temple of Doom was.

    I’d also forgotten how stupid I thought it was to make one, then a prequel to one as two, then the sequel to one as the third.

    And what happened to Marion?

    I’ll have to read a ton of reviews for Indy 4, but I have a feeling, because the short kid will want to see it too, that we’ll be waiting for the DVD release. *sigh*

    Temple of Doom’s a prequel??? Huh.

    I spent a LOT of that film hiding behind cushions.

    Indy 3 was a work of genius. Sean looked remarkably like my Dad in it…

    Yeah, 1 was set in 1936, 2 in 1935 and 3 in 1938.

    Have NO idea why.

    4 is set in 1957, so at least they’ll be able to address why Indy’s bathing in Ben-Gay every ten minutes. :rofl:
