I actually thought Crystal Skull was a great addition to the Indy series. Cool

I know quite a few people who liked it. To each their own I guess

Let's be honest: The Temple of Doom wasn't that good either.

I'd pick Crystal Skull over Temple of Doom. That's the one I mentally drop out of the Indie trilogy.

Temple of Doom is my least favorite in the Indy series. I'll take Crystal Skull any day.

What is wrong with you people?! No Temple of Doom? *mumbles chant to rip hearts from chest*

I grew up with the Indy trilogy, and all three are deeply embedded into my childhood. It is for that reason that I hold them so dearly. Sure, I liked Crystal Skull, it was pretty good, but...I just can't see it as part of that "original trilogy." The stupid vine scene still haunts me.

Now Casino...there's an interesting movie. Violence and Joe Pesci at their best. Goodfellas was okay, but I thought Casino was better. Fifth Element was a fun movie. And Taken was certainly one of Liam's best. But what's Leon?

How could you people not mention any of the great classics? What's the matter with you?

Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Animal House
Young Frankenstein

Before their time?

Indy IV is deliberately distinct from the original trilogy because the original trilogy was modeled upon the 1930s serials and pulp comics whereas Indy IV is modeled on 1950s sci-fi B-movies.

Well, then their parents should be ashamed of the shocking lack in the kids education. I made sure my sons saw these. Very Happy

Oh yeah. Add Uncle Buck to the list.

Well my initial list was very small. I shall spotlight "the classics."

I concur that Monty Python and the Holy Grail should be on there, definitely one of the best comedies ever made.

However, I have to admit, I didn't like Animal House.

But I digress, the classics...in comedy!

Ghostbusters
The Great Race
Groundhogs Day
Scrouge
Dr. Strangelove
The Blues Brothers
Cheech and Chong's Up In Smoke
The Great Outdoors (my favorite John Candy flick)
City Slickers

These would be my personal favs.
