    I think he meant a sequel being the best of the series. T2 and Last Crusade are awesome, but I don't consider them the best of their respective franchises. Just my opinion.

    So, your favorite is Temple of Doom?

    Raiders is hands down the best. Everyone settle down right now!

    I'm sorry. I mis-read your post as saying that you haven't seen it. It's all good! :p

    Hands down? No way. Choosing between Raiders and Crusade is like choosing between Coke and Pepsi.

    I have a hard time picking between the first 3 Indy films, But overall I think "Raiders" is probably the best made.

    I think Temple Of Doom is amazing. Until Crystal Skull came out, I wasn't aware that many people don't like Temple.

    So....Arndt. Kinda suprised we havn't gotten one interview yet. I'd imagine reporters would be begging to get interviews with the guy who legit knows all the secrets regarding the sequel trilogy. Here's hoping soon we get some good interviews from the "Double A's" (Arndt and Abrams).

    Also...I hope Arndt gives the new characters some good dialogue and makes it so they can take over the franchise *and also makes a bunch of memorable characters no matter how big or small the character is*. Sorry but I kinda want the new cast to outshine the old cast *runs away and hides to avoid tomatoes being hurled at head*

    I think the only time you'll get a peep out of Arndt DC is at the premier. The usual, 'well I think we've done a good job and hopefully everyone will enjoy the movie?' I have to say, I've got an overwhelming sense of optimism knowing Arndt, Kasdan and Abrams are captaining this ship. And I don't think mistakes will be made with the cast. Just a hunch

    Yeah you say Abrams, Arndt and Kasdan *I'm now calling them AKA* you can't help but get excited. Coarse my cynical scarred fangirl mind is keeping my optomism/expectations in check, but still...on paper that group sounds great

    Temple's great, but it's definitely my least favorite. I can't take Kate Capshaw's constant shrieking. Same reason I fast-forward the lizard riding sequence in ROTS. It's like they used her voice...

    Same here. I like the rest of the movie fine, but she just won't stop screaming . . . :mad:

    It would be nice to get SOME update from the O.S as regards the status of the script, is first draft written, has JJ read it, given notes, etc....

    I feel it's a coin flip between Raiders and Last Crusade. Personally however I liked Last Crusade more.

    Since this thread is devolving into a Indy discussion...sorry OP!

    I advise everyone to watch Raiders in black and white (turn down the color on your t.v.).
    It's like is was made to be seen that way. Give it a try sometime! It's awesome!
    ESB works well that way too. ;)

    He has a few movies that he wrote coming out this year, so he's bound to be on the red carpet for some of them. They'll put the screws to him. :)

    Okay, that about sums it up.

    On to the real discussion. I'm not a fan of TS3. I thought it was way too dramatic for its audience. LMS was, well, boring. However, I will say that Arndt has a good eye for dialogue - which is the thing Star Wars is most lacking in. If he's writing the script, but not necessarily the story, I could be quite happy.

    Oblivion looks great though. That one's giving me hope.
