    The Craig/Weisz split article has all the hallmarks of bullshit, and it's from a rag tabloid site with writers and "sources" who represent the absolute lowest forms of humanity. Do people consider where what they're reading is coming from?

    The bottom of Radar's articles includes this message, for crying out loud:

    Let's move on to facts, folks.

    That´s great, might be a good motivation to give a mean Bond performance. Spielberg also made his best Indy film when he got seperated.

    He separated before making Raiders?

    If I'm not mistaken, we actually don't have any knowledge or information on B25 from the people who make these films. Consequently, if we're being pedantic, the most pertinent comment on this thread was captured on the very first page, in the 2nd post which I requote below.

    Who says there will even be a Bond 25 ;)

    Nah, course there will :P

    I think we can all agree that the above is accurate. The rest is all varying degree of conjecture, speculation and opinion. In lieu of hard facts, I'm all for the open discussion as I've said before, and don't discriminate between comments & opinions which are more in line with my own thinking, and those which aren't.

    Come on, this is the same site that said Sony offered Craig $150 million for two films.

    Back to Bond 25.

    Nice one Samuel! Your word is good enough for me! :-bd

    Spielberg says on some dvd bonus that Temple of Doom got so dark because he went through a divorce shortly before.

    I find Temple to be rather cheesy.

    @jake24, time to change the headline.
  • Let's move on to facts, folks.

    Like Jeffrey Wright tweeting a pic of himself from ten years ago suddenly igniting 5 pages of discussion, champagne uncorking, and a new headline? ;)

    Literally nothing in this thread is facts. It is pure, unadulterated, unmitigated speculation. 700+ pages of it. Do we know anything at all about Bond 25 at this point, apart from P&W being announced by Baz (which even some have refused to believe)?

    The Wright post has a lot more ammunition to it than a story from a website specializing in fake news, so yes.

    As for facts, a lot of what is in here will turn out to be fact at a later date. Many people's predictions or views on the production will be revealed to be on the money once the film is out and the production's events are made known. Everyone that said Dan would be back will be right, as would those who said the story of Bond 25 would continue from SP, etc.

    Either way, we should always be striving to find truth, instead of purporting obvious bullshit at every turn.

    I'm all for rampant speculation: Oyelowo smiles and whispers on the airwaves and German helicopter purchases. It's fun. It's a way to keep engaged while we await the inevitable—the 20/20 that disproves or validates the months upon months of chatter.

    Craig may turn out to be Bond again, thus validating the controversial Oyelowo smile as fact. Jeffrey Wright may turn out to be Felix again, thus validating an obscure tweet as fact. Sort of, in both cases. Or if not quite as "facts" then as something that may have had some grain of truth in it.

    But at the moment, none of these are facts. It's all speculation, and who is to police what speculation is futurefact-worthy and what is not? (Rhetorical question: the mods and jake24, quite obviously, and I'd say this thread has received a healthy girth for varying degrees of conjecture to date.)

    Anyway, we were discussing Indiana Jones I believe...? ;)

    I can't imagine how anyone would think Temple even approached the level of artistry that we see in Raiders, I prefer Crusade to TOD but the first film ticked all the boxes and was paced to perfection that any film that followed was going to playing catch up.

    This wasn't a case of Star Wars where Empire upped the game and took the saga to new heights or Dark Knight raising the bar over Batman Begins, Indiana Jones hit it's peak from the start and is never likely to be topped.

    I'd love to see a Bond film that reaches those heights.

    I could never get into Raiders. Temple has grown on me but my favourite remains Last Crusade. It's the most Bondian of them all imho (perhaps on account of King Sean & Doody) and that's just what I like.
  • Posts: 10,688
    Last Crusade is my favorite of all the Indiana Jones movies, and is also one of my all-time favorite movies (probably Top 10). Absolutely brilliant entertainment IMO; the ultimate adventure flick. Raiders is awesome too, and holds my second place. Temple of Doom is the most flawed of the originals, but still very fun and entertaining overall. Kingdom is the only one I don't really care for.

    I can see where this conversation is leading, so let's drop Indy and revert back to B25.

    I don't want to get off topic here, so I'll just say that Short Round's presence basically shoots down any chances TOD had of being on the same level as Raiders or Last Crusade. Not a big Indie guy, but it's clear that the middle film was very cheesy and tonally confused on the whole because of Short Round and the wackiness of Willie Scott.

    TOD is garbage but Raiders and Crusade are brilliant

    Crusade is great fun but to put it on the same level as Raiders???

    Crusade is guilty of turning Marcus Brody into a buffoon, the chemistry between Ford & Connery is the real prize.

    Raiders though is Ford all the way, great supporting cast and the best action set pieces in cinema history as well as a great script but Ford has never been better, it's like watching Connery in FRWL.

    I can't see how either sequel could compare to that.

    It's like saying Godfather 3 is my favourite of the trilogy.

    I think Indiana Jones has his own thread peeps,this is risking a shut down of this thread !

    Raiders is with zero doubt the best. Not only the best Indy, but possibly the best action film of all time. I like TOD a lot however, consider it on about the same level as TLC.

    And the whole movie will focus on Madeleine as the main character. Wouldn't a James Bond-less movie be an ingenious thing to do?

    What about Bond-less, Tanner, M, Moneypenny-less Bond 25?

    Have only Jeffrey Wright's Felix.
