I'm gonna pick it up, too, but probably on a used deal or something.

I'd actually say Last Crusade = Temple of Doom = Crystal Skull

All have glaring faults, but are entertaining in some way.

Indeed it is. Though it's much less a proclamation of KotCS's goodness than of the crappiness of the other sequels.

The chemistry between Ford and Connery alone puts Last Crusade ahead of the other sequels.

Easily.

I have zero desire to ever watch this one again. That makes me sad.

Yeah, that is just you.

The order of the sequels is debatable to me. I mean, Connery makes Last Crusade as awesome as it was, but I love the general insanity that is Temple of Doom and certain elements of Crystal Skull. Nothing, however, can top the brilliance of Raiders of the Lost Ark - it's perfect entertainment from start to finish.

To be honest, I've only seen Raiders start to finish like once. So yes, my opinion is biased towards Crusade cause I've seen it a LOT. I own Raiders now though, so as soon as I get myself a new VCR (yes I own it on VHS) I am having myself an Indiana Jones Marathon, and I'm sure that I'll end up loving it just as much, if not more, then Crusade

I used to consider Crusade right up there with Raiders for the longest time... then I watched them back-to-back, and to me, there's no comparison. They're two different films, I understand, but Raiders blended the humor, action, character, and plot better than Crusade. Crusade's an intentional retread on a lot of the things that worked in Raiders because of the reception of Temple of Doom... so that takes something away a bit, for me.

That's not to say it's a bad film by any means, it just has greater flaws than Raiders - at least in my opinion, it does. I still enjoy watching it and the other sequels, that's for sure.

I re-watched Crusade right before Crystal Skull was released, and liked it better than I remembered....but for me, Raiders is head and shoulders better than not only Crusade, but than any action movie outside of my beloved Empire.

I probably won't change my mind about ranking, just because Crusade has been my favorite as long as I can remember, but I'd probably rank Raiders above Crystal Skull, and possibly equal with Crusade if I could just catch it all the way through. I can't tell you how many times I've seen the beginning, or just the end, etc. I always catch it on, but never have enough time to watch the whole thing .
