    Welcome one and all to the voting thread for the top 100 scenes of the Indiana Jones Saga! With the success of the countdowns in both the Classic and Prequel Trilogy forums, it is now time to give it a try for Indy himself.

    How to Vote:

    -Compile a list of your 20 favorite scenes (1 being your favorite) from all four of the Indiana Jones films(we will be using the titles of the DVD chapters to identify what is a scene). Be sure to number your list 1-20. Each number on the list will have a different point value and this will help me later on in coming up with the final list.

    -If you wish, you can include comments on why you picked a particular scene, which will ultimately be posted along with the final list.

    -PM all entries to HanSolo29.

    -You are free to post your lists here for discussion, but please remember to PM them to me as well in order for them to count!

    -All lists must be within my PM box by Wednesday, March 18 at Midnight board time.

    Which scene in Last Crusade was when Indy goes over the cliff, and Brody, Henry, and Sallah are looking down and Indy climbs back up?

    I sent mine in, but I haven't seen any of the Indy movies in months. So I hope I'm remembering the scenes I want... [face_thinking]

    I think I'm going to watch Indy 4 tonight, I have the DVD around here somewhere.

    Yes it is. I came up with a top 20 which would have been easy to submit. It was narrowing the list down that was the hardest part.

    I'm having trouble because my favorite scenes overlap DVD chapters.

    Now I'm starting to think maybe I should've allowed the top 20. :p

    If scenes overlap, I wouldn't have a problem if you put the two together to account for it.

    I'm going to ask you to go with the 10 for now. Maybe if we need more scenes after voting closes, we can open it up to add more. We'll see how things pan out. :)

    Darn... it was worth a shot :p

    I'll try to send mine in this weekend, after i do a little refreshing by rewatching the movies... maybe that will make it easier to narrow all the scenes i have down up until now [face_laugh]
