#MTOS  Indiana Jones

 "Movie Talk on Sunday … I always knew some day you'd come walking back through my door."

Since I first saw ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ at the cinema in 1981 I’ve been a massive fan of Dr.Jones. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve seen the films … the first three films can surely be counted as one of the best movie trilogies ever created. I understand that not everyone shares my love of the dishy professor of archaeology and lord knows there are plenty who think the  4th film nuked the fridge but whether you’re a fan of making it up as you go or not I want to know what YOU think about Indiana..

Here are the ten questions for this week’s ‘Movie Talk On Sunday’;

Q1. In what order do you rank the Indiana Jones films? #1 being your favourite and #4 being the worst #MTOS

Q2. Indy is the ultimate action hero, what is the best action sequence in the entire 500 minutes of the four Indiana Jones films? #MTOS

Q3. Throughout the 4 films Indiana Jones faces off against a dastardly collection of villains, who is your favourite and why? #MTOS

Q4. An Indy film couldn’t exist without a macguffin, of the 4 that Indy searches for, which would YOU want to get hold of & why? #MTOS

Q5. Indy is a cinematic icon and the films have been referenced, homaged and parodied many times by other films, which did it best? #MTOS

Q6. The love life of Dr.Jones is best described as complicated, which of the ladies in his life should he have plumped for?  #MTOS

Q7. Which supporting actor/actress gives the best performance in which of the four Indy films? #MTOS

Q8. Dr. Jones has a bit of a problem with snakes … what would your nightmare occupants of the Well of Souls be? #MTOS

Q9. Many criticised the casting of Shia LeBeouf as Indy’s son Mutt Williams, which actor would have been a better choice? #MTOS

Q10. Harrison Ford has agreed to do a 5th Indy film and you’ve been asked to pen a script … pitch me your idea #MTOS 

I will post a question every 10 minutes starting at 20:00 GMT on Sunday, 14th of October. Make sure you are following me on Twitter @TGP73 and answer your questions with an “A” and question number and add the #MTOS hashtag at the end.

For example my answer for Question #1 would be:
“A1. My order doesn’t change, it’s definitely #1Raiders, #2Crusade #3Temple #4Skull #MTOS”

Then just do a search on #MTOS and follow along the fun and hijinx. Feel free to RT (Retweet) the answers you like or agree with and reply to any answers you wish. Debate is encouraged but please keep it civilised (no snakes). It’s all about having fun and sharing your thoughts with fellow movie lovers like yourself. Also feel free to invite your followers along and post a link to this page so you can all get your answers ready. 

When giving your answers to the questions please feel free to use the following abbreviations when referring to the four films of the Indiana Jones quadrilogy;
Raiders = Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark
Temple = Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
Crusade = Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

The best answer to Q10 as decided by the host will win all four Indiana Jones films (the orginal trilogy on DVD and the newer film on Blu Ray)
