Indiana Jones and The Paraders of the Last Lark

"I've still got it"


What is it with Hollywood's pre-occupation with sequels? It's not enough to produce one movie? You can't come up with a fresh idea for a new movie? You gotta go back to the well two... three... even four times?
^
In 1981, Harrison Ford starred in a hugely successful movie called Raiders of the Lost Ark. It was so successful George Lucas and Steven Spielberg decided to do a sequel in 1984 and Harrison Ford starred in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. It was so successful... ...yeah, you got it - H.F. in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade in 1989.
^
Not content with...
a) a trilogy of movies
b) a trilogy of mega-profits
c) with their last movie having the word "last" in the title, or
d) all of the above
^
...Messrs Ford, Lucas and Spielberg came out with a fourth in the franchise, last year's Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull .
^
At 65, Ford was practically using a walker for the latest installment. Now comes word, there may be a FIFTH adventure committed to celluloid.
^
That's right, currently 67, Ford says if the script was right, he'd do it. Let's see, once the script is written, financing is arranged, actors are cast and the blockbuster is filmed Ford'll be lucky if he's still this side of 70.

So, possible titles?

The real question is how old will Sean Connery be by that time?

You just get funnier and funnier Noname! *smile*

Indiana Jones Can't Quite Remember What He Climbed The Stairs For?

CatLady: Yeah, that should have been the name of the 2nd movie.

UR: He's 79 now. I dunno - dead?

Quirks: Well, I try. I eat right, brush after every meal and I take multi-vitamins.

PhilH: Long time, no comment. Yep, good title. Haha

Perfect! Then we'd have good reason to get an 80 year Clint Eastwood back in the saddle again or carrying a .44 magnum. The most powerful handgun in the world, and will blow your head clean off. Punk!

Don: Great movie. The full quote was: “You've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya punk?” Did you see Gran Torino? Not bad for a 79 year old coot.

Geesh, the dude could barely walk in the last film. I can't believe they're going to cast him another one.

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post...

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)





Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...


I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
