Time to hang up the whip?

Let me preface this by saying that I think Harrison Ford is hot. He may be in his 60s, but he's a lovely specimen.

However...

I don't think I can embrace his Indiana Jones character quite as much as I did in the '80s. Some things just shouldn't be resurrected.

Of course, since the next movie is already in the bag, I'd like to make a few suggestions should they choose to produce more:

  1. Indiana Jones and the Aluminum Walker of Doom
  2. Raiders of the Lost Personal Care Home
  3. Indiana Jones and the Medicare Premiums
  4. Indiana Jones and the HoverRound
  5. Indiana Jones and the AARP
  6. Indiana Jones and the Dentures of Doom
  7. Indiana Jones Meets Wilford Brimley

(Thanks to my hubster who came up with the first two!)

These are wonderful, Angelique. I like the idea of Indiana Jones beating prostate cancer and licking osteoarthritis too. Or Indiana Jones and the Aortic Valve triumph.

What I'd REALLY like to see, though, is a female Indiana Jones doing all this stuff. And I don't mean a 30- or 40-something cutie, either -- I mean someone as old as Harrison Ford. Maybe Angelina Jolie will be able to manage this some day.

IJ4 sucked and I'm telling as many people as I can to save their money. Just my opinion though!

I posted your Halo vignette on my sidebar as the writing of the week. Is that okay? Perhaps I should ask first...

Oh, and regarding Mary's comment---YES!!! That's what last week's writing exercise on my blog was about. I want a kick-ass chick who gets to save the world.

I LOVED "Dentures of Doom." Son and I saw this last weekend. I was confused by many things I saw .... SPOILER ....








I mean, aliens? I don't know.

Shia LeBeouf will be taking over the series as the lead so Harrison will not be in the next one as a main character.

Mary: Perhaps we could apply and be Indiana Jane and Jill! :)

=======================

Chris: I appreciate knowing that my hunches were founded. And I was so flattered that I snagged a sidebar! WOW! Thank you!
Want to join Mary and myself as new super heroines? How about "The Three Celluteers"?

=======================

Beth:

Why don't they just invent NEW stories, heroes, et cetera? I hate when Hollywood goes back to the well again and again and again and...

=======================

Ello:

Depends is always funny. I don't care who or where you are. Love it.
