It is time to set our an adventure on our find out grab your fedoras and get ready as we raid the Temple of Doom on the Last Crusade for the Crystal Skull. Also, rank movies of Indiana Jones adventures from worst to first.
1.) Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)
Harrison Ford stepped away from the Millennium Falcon to donate fedora and crack a whip to become the adventurous and heroic Indiana Jones that gave Han Solo some stiff competition for a pop-culture icon dominance the concept of a ruggedly dashing hero who was intelligent enough to teach on the collegiate level yet could go adventuring on the weekends was an instant hit there when the fact that you’re trying to prevent the Nazis from gaining the power of biblical proportions and you’ve got an adventure anyone can get behind Raiders of the Lost Ark set the standard for blockbuster movies that filmmakers really have been attempting to recreate for decades and much like the runaway Boulder that nearly crushed ending Raiders was a force that could not be stopped it not only was the most successful film of 1981.
it was also nominated for nine Academy Awards and took home four of them not too shabby for a 1940’s adventure movie focusing on a whip-cracking adventurer alright now that you’ve seen how we ranked all for Indiana Jones movies it is time to rank yours is Raiders of the Lost Ark really the best one and should Temple of Doom be ranked a little bit higher.
2.) Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984)
Indiana Jones the Temple of Doom, Indiana Jones once again returned to the big screen in 1984 with Temple of Doom which was actually a prequel to Raiders of the Lost Ark set in an earlier time in order to avoid having to include if not ease into the storyline while the film had plenty of action and adventure.
of course, it also brought in the family entertainment value by teaming indie with a catchphrase spewing kid sidekick called short round and tasking them to save a whole slew of captured children adding in a more comedic leading lady gave the movie a little bit more of an enjoyable tone than the original and while it did have its light-hearted moments Temple of Doom.
also went pretty dark with human sacrifices increased violence – and hearts being ripped out ouch with all of that though it didn’t have a single Nazi face being melted off and was a solid entry into the franchise it did fail to bring the same magic as the original this was reflected of course in the box office with Temple of Doom having the lowest take of the entire franchise
3.) Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989)
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade where Temple of Doom brought in the kid calm in the element 1989’s The Last Crusade flipped the concept around making indeed a kid – Papa Jones Sean Connery beyond the family drama The Last Crusade returned the franchise to its roots pitting Indy once again against the Nazis on a search for a long last biblical artifact it also was significantly toned down in violence and also in the gore department after the mixed critical response from Temple of Doom even with the lessened violence it was still packed with a lot of diverse action scenes including castle rescues aerial dogfights chases galore and truly felt like you were getting double with the Joneses worth of action financially it paid off big-time becoming the biggest success of the original trilogy.
4.) Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008)
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull now when you dust off one of the most legendary characters in film history for a comeback after 19 years you better make sure is a treasure worth digging up sadly though what audiences actually found was 2008 Crystal Skull was a relic they wished would have been buried forever while it may have brought in the biggest box-office dollars of the franchise.
it was received poorly by audiences who felt like something beloved had been tarnished and a story that included flying refrigerators and aliens it may have been the best way to go despite its Falls it was pretty great to see Indiana on another adventure through Harrison Ford was completely capable of reprising the role and it marks the return of Karen Allen as Marion who had been missing since the first movie fans were pretty torn over the addition of Shia LaBeouf and while previous Indiana Jones films have been thrilling and adventurous this one kind of came across as a little bit silly stale and a bit forced with Disney now holding the keys to Jones’s treasure chest we’ll likely see that iconic Fedora and that whip on the big screen in some form but Crystal Skull was definitely not the high note this series.
5.) Indiana Jones 5 (2022) Upcoming
Indiana Jones 5, Frank Marshall delays movie release because of the coronavirus.
Also, because of the switching of directors but now that we have the director set Steven Spielberg is staying on as a producer and everything is starting to fall in line including the clearing up of the coronavirus allowing sets to start opening up again things are starting to fall in place for Indiana Jones 5.
