We should not be encouraging sequels.

It's bad enough they made Indy IV. We're just all here hoping it's good enough not to shit on the original trilogy.

I agree with what others have said though...as long as there is minimal CGI and they let the story carry more than the effects (trusting that the story is good) then I think it has potential

I will agree with you for almost anything pre Sabrina. After that there was a decline but you are right saying a bad Harrison Ford movie is still pretty good...

I kinda wish he would try some different roles though with different directors... I would love to see him in a quirky Coen Brothers movie

Harrison Ford + Coen Brothers would be awesome

I'm just glad Calista Flockhart didn't make Indy 4...

Yes, but if there were not sequels there wouldnt even be a trilogy to compare it to.

Sequels are fine if they are done properly. Unfortunately alot of the time they are not.

Much more often than not sequels pale in comparison to the original (including the Indy films), and often even disgrace the original. Some sequels actually make for a great franchise (see Indy again), and some very rare cases even surpass the original (Star Wars, Terminator).

But I still don't think we should encourage sequel-making. They're gonna happen one way or another. And if they're miraculously done right, then I'm all for the film. But as a rule, I say the less sequels the better.

I agree. Don't ruin something that's special.

I hope not, but for different reasons. At 65, he is still looking pretty damn good. I'd take him over any of the so-called "hot" actors these days, barring Johnny Depp.

Hey, anything new doesn't make the old bad (unless they make Greedo shoot first... again). I like expanding the universe and even Young Indy has it's own appeal.
