    That's the official title of the new Indiana Jones movie due out in the US theaters May 22, 2008. Big news for me (I didn't know) is that Karen Allen will be reprising her role as Marion which she played in the original "Raiders of the Lost Ark". The subsequent stories never explained what happened to Marion and now I guess we'll find out. Here's the news story:

    I used to think Karen Allen was pretty she's not doing to bad these days either.

    I will watch it but I thought the Indiana jones films were spoiled by the one with Sean Connerry in it.

    I just hope it doesn't suck.

    Hopefully this will be the last. Yeah I agree that, even though Sean Connery is a great actor he wasn't very good in the last crusade.

    I never like Blade runner either.

    I do like the Jack Ryan films he did.

    I hate it when they keep releasing versions of films but blade runner a million times is too much.

    I also hate it when they remake films like Physco and stuff

    I agree the adaptation of Tom Clancy's book about a CIA analyst Jack Ryan, was excellent. ( Clear and present Danger being my favourite (or should that be favorite, allowing for the US spelling :biggrin )

    In a Harrison Ford interview, when making Patriot Games he said he had signed a contract for 5 films as Jack Ryan??? But there are only 3 films??

    Yeah Clear & Present Danger was a good films, hopefully there will be more but he is getting on now.

    I was pissed off cos there were only 2 Conan films there was supposed to be 13.

    The director wanted to make 13 as there were 13 main comics although there are more now, he also wanted them to coincide with every bond release.

    Some of the titles were: Conan the Advernturer, Conan the King, and Conan the conquerer.

    Arnie was about sign for the 3rd film when he went and done Terminator and Raw deal and got too famous

    Gutted!:(

    I saw Terminator 3 on the telly last week and it was no way as good as the 2nd one.

    What do you think about Lord of The Rings??

    I noticed there's a original version, an extended version a special boxed edition with book ends and now a special edition disc which has the original version and the extended version on it!!

    Lord of the Rings : Fellowship of the Ring - Special Limited Edition

    I saw it at the pics I thought it was good but not as good as the 2nd but I thought the 1st was the best, I always thought arnie was always better as a real badass but I thought he was better as a ruthless killing machine that didnt talk much

    Lord of the rings only saw the 1st one, have read the books I thought they were good.

    I remember reading a lot of the Robert E Howard Conan books when I was in high school. The original short stories were written in the 1930s and Howard was paid pennies a page for them. He eventually died in poverty but left a sort of legacy in the "Sword and Sorcery" genre.

    I'm not surprised that 13 films were originally envisioned. There is certainly enough material for them. Alas, the films were cr@p and didn't really capture the essense of the original stories.
